Rio Management Terms and Conditions   

TERMS AND CONDITIONS OF RENTAL

Please note that all online bookings are subject to review/approval and may be canceled and deposits refunded within 48 hours should your reservation not be accepted. In addition, all units are subject to availability, which may change at any time, and all rates quoted are also subject to change at any time. Many units also have additional charges for extra guests (over 2 guests in studio/1-bedrooms, 4 guests in 2-bedrooms, or 6 guests in 3-bedrooms) or for stays of less than 3 nights, so please check with us prior to booking online if you will be over the normal occupancy or staying for less than 3 nights.

PAYMENT TERMS

The first  required  payment  is a Reservation deposit of 30% - 50% depending on the period of the year and the total rental value of the property,  excluding any extra cost and cleaning  charges, Airport Pick-up charges, ect. The balance of your payment is due in full at time of check-in in CASH. By authorizing payment via credit card you are authorizing Rio Management to charge your credit card the balance of the total charges if they are not paid in CASH upon your arrival or per written agreement prior to your arrival. If you book your rental less than 10 days in advance of your stay, we will charge your full payment immediately by credit card or you must otherwise arrange for payment immediately or your reservation will not be accepted. If a balance payment is to be made, a confirmation notice will be sent to you via email to confirm receipt of payment.

FAILURE TO MAKE THE REQUIRED RESERVATION PAYMENT OF 30% - 50% ON A TIMELY BASIS WILL RESULT IN THE AUTOMATIC CANCELATION OF YOUR RESERVATION.

 

CANCELATION AND NO REFUND POLICY

CANCELATION after confirmation of booking, which includes a Guest's decision not to stay at a rental upon arrival, results in forfeiture of any and all collected money, except the Guest's security deposit and cleaning fee (if applicable) if full payment has been made. The security deposit and pre-paid cleaning fee are not part of the deposit to hold the rental. The security deposit and pre-paid cleaning fee (if applicable) are included in the balance payment; therefore, the total deposit will be forfeited if you cancel after confirmation of booking. Collected money is non-refundable. To protect against cancelations caused by certain unforeseen events, such as illness, we recommend that Guests purchase travel insurance to assure refund of deposits paid.

Any CHANGES made to a booking after a confirmation has been issued will be assessed a $85.00 service fee. Acceptance of any change is subject to approval by Rio Management.
