These Terms and Conditions (“Terms”) govern your use of the bedfinder online tool for booking temporary accommodation (“bedfinder”). bedfinder is provided and maintained by BF International Travel AG, a company incorporated under the laws of Switzerland with its registered domicile at Sägereistrasse 20, 8152 Glattbrugg, Switzerland, company registration no. CHE-495.645.077 (“Agent”, “we” or “us”).
bedfinder allows individuals (“you”) to book temporary accommodation (e.g. rooms, hotels, bed and breakfasts, motels or hostels) (“Accommodation”) offered by third-party accommodation suppliers (“Suppliers”). For example, you can use bedfinder to verify whether Accommodation offered by a Supplier is available and book the relevant Accommodation through bedfinder.
It is important to understand that we do not offer, distribute, provide or sell any Accommodation ourselves. We solely offer you an online booking tool by which you can book Accommodation offered and provided by the Suppliers. As a result, when you book an Accommodation through bedfinder, you enter into a direct and legally binding accommodation contract with the relevant Supplier and not with us. We only act as a booking agent. As a result, we are not responsible or liable to you for making sure that the Accommodation you booked through bedfinder is actually made available to you. We are also not responsible or liable to you that the Accommodation booked through bedfinder matches the information provided to you on the Accommodation prior to or at the time of booking.
Currently, we offer bedfinder free of charge. We reserve the right, however, to impose a fee or any other compensation for the use of bedfinder in the future.
You are granted a personal, non-assignable and non-exclusive license to access and use bedfinder for the sole purpose of enabling you to use and enjoy the benefit of bedfinder as provided by us, in the manner permitted by these Terms and in accordance with applicable laws or regulations.
You are solely responsible for obtaining at your own expense all international travel documents (including valid passport, valid identity card or visa) that are required for you and your fellow travelers (including spouses and children) to clear customs in and immigration into foreign countries. The names, birth dates and other information on the international travel documents must match the names, birth dates and other information on your booking.
If you are a United States citizen or resident and wish to travel to Cuba by citizens and residents of the United States, you must obtain a license by the United States Government due to United States embargo laws with respect to Cuba. We strongly recommend that you obtain accurate and up-to-date information regarding customs clearance and immigration
prior to booking the Accommodation. To that end, you should consult with your local embassy or consulate of the country in which the Accommodation is located. bedfinder will not refund any amounts paid for Accommodation you were not able to use due to your failure to obtain the proper travel documents or any required licenses.
You are solely responsible to determine whether there are any health restrictions or precautions that you or your fellow travelers (such as spouses and children) need to observe for using the Accommodation booked through bedfinder or travelling to the country in which it is located. We strongly recommend that you ensure that all of your and your fellow travelers (such as spouses and children) immunizations or vaccinations are up-to-date at the time of travel and that you and your fellow travelers (such as spouses and children) have all necessary prescriptions for your travel. All travelers should see their family physician or visit a travel clinic at least two to three months before traveling. You should also be aware that some common prescription medications which are legal in your country (such as birth control, cold medications and pain killers) can be illegal in other countries.
We further recommend that you review all travel restrictions, warnings, and advisories issued by the appropriate governmental authorities and pertaining to the foreign country in which the Accommodation is located. We do not represent, warrant or guarantee that the country in which the Accommodation is located is safe, advisable and/or within acceptable risk guidelines as outlined by the appropriate governmental authorities.
All Accommodation offered through bedfinder is subject to applicable cancellation rules. Whether you are allowed to cancel a booking you made through bedfinder depends on the applicable cancellation policy of the Supplier offering the Accommodation you booked. We recommend that you check the applicable cancellation policy of the Supplier before you book an Accommodation. The applicable cancellation policies are available at time of booking. The applicable cancellation policy is also included in your booking confirmation. Cancellations may be subject to cancellation fees or penalties.
In the event where you fail to use an Accommodation that has been properly confirmed to you by the Supplier through bedfinder without cancellation (“No-show”), bedfinder will be entitled to charge you for the full rate or price for the relevant Accommodation. You have no rights for refund, reduction or credit in case of a No-show.
The rates and prices payable for the Accommodation (including any children’s rates and prices) are disclosed at the time of booking. The rates and prices include Accommodation, sales, value added and any other taxes that are required by applicable law. To the extent you have to pay visitor’s or any other temporary lodging taxes due at the place where the Accommodation is located, we will inform you on such taxes in the booking confirmation.
Rates and prices do not include any additional fees imposed by the Supplier for additional properties and features such as cribs, rollaway beds, meals and beverages, mini-bar snacks, shows, tours, tips, telephone calls, laundry, resort fee and other surcharges or other services and purchases of a personal and/or supplementary nature which are not otherwise specified in the rates or prices and therefore excluded. The Supplier will assess these additional fees directly to you. All personal charges must be paid at the time of using the Accommodation or as designated by Supplier.
Some rates and prices may be subject to special restrictions and conditions. We strongly recommend that you review the applicable restrictions and conditions prior to booking the relevant Accommodation.
Rates and prices are subject to adjustment without notice prior until acceptance of your booking offer by Supplier and full payment of the applicable price. Thereafter, the rates and prices are not subject to any adjustments. Retroactive rate or price reductions are excluded.
