These general terms and conditions – which may be modified from time to time – apply to the use of the website and all services made available online, by e- mail or by phone. By using and making a reservation through our website, you acknowledge and agree that you have read, understood and consented to the general terms and conditions below.
RENTING A VILLA
Our website www.whiteislandvillas.com is an online platform designed to provide you with a full list of quality holiday properties to rent in the Spanish Islands direct from many registered & reputable agencies, where you as a site visitor can make reservations. If you make a reservation on www.whiteislandvillas.com, you are entering into a (contractually binding) relationship with the accommodation provider whose property you are renting. We will only act as an intermediary between you and the accommodation provider.
White Island Villas takes a commission or an advertising fee from advertisers only, making sure you pay the best possible price. There are no extra charges to guests.
Find a villa – Free service. We have access to most agencies on the islands and have many brochures of villas that are not listed on the internet for security reasons. If you don’t see a suitable villa listed on our website, please contact us with your requirements and we will email you with a list of villas that we think could be a perfect match.
We publish the details given to us by the property advertiser / agency, we are not responsible for any content on the properties we list, therefore if you require any further information at all regarding any of our listed properties, then please request this via the Contact form on the property page itself. www.whiteislandvillas.com is not a travel agent nor tour operator, nor the end supplier. We are an intermediary and an advertising platform for agencies wishing to advertise their villas within the Spanish Islands for rent. We are therefore in no way responsible for the properties themselves or the content of the adverts. We simply publish the information that the advertisers send to us.
While we try and ensure that all prices on our website are accurate, these are passed onto us by our advertisers and errors may occur. If we discover an error in the price we will inform you as soon as possible and give you the option of reconfirming your booking at the correct price or cancelling it. Occasionally, some prices shown are a guide only and, for your convenience, may have had calculations applied to them to give approximate comparisons and estimates, with regards to other similar prices listed, and/or currency rates which may fluctuate. There is no guarantee that prices are updated constantly, in real-time, nor that any offers shown are still available. Prices shown may only be available as part of a booking of a particular duration or offer, and may have restrictions or qualifying requirements and/or dates. Prices can only be confirmed at time of booking with the end supplier, including any extras, deposits, fees, taxes, surcharges, and/or miscellaneous or others charges. White Island Villas DO NOT hold any monies from the client. Payments go directly to the advertiser using their payment details so again we are not responsible for any payments or any payment protection, as we are purely an advertiser.
All transactions are between yourself and the advertiser and the payment terms set out by our advertisers are shown on the rental contracts. Should you have any queries or concerns regarding the booking, the advertiser themselves or in fact the payment details on the booking, then all the advertiser contact details will be included on the booking rental contract, so please make any further checks with them personally. We advise you to do this in case there is anything you wish to check before proceeding, as naturally, this is nothing to do with us (White Island Villas LTD) – so it is up to you to check all you wish to check before making payment to the agency.
After you have completed our booking form, the holiday home will be reserved for you (upon the accommodation providers approval), and the rental agreement for your booking will be sent to you by e-mail. With the realisation of this agreement, you are obliged to a 30% (in some cases 50%) down payment of the total rental price. This down payment needs to be transferred within 2 days after receiving this agreement. The rest of the outstanding amount, needs to be paid 6-8 weeks prior to arrival. Bookings that take place before 6 weeks of arrival need to be paid in full, and need to be transferred to the agents bank account directly after receiving the invoice and the agreement. When the sum is not paid in time, the client is in neglect: We then have the right to cancel the reservation.
Note: In some instances, It is possible to pay with creditcard or via PayPal. If paid via one of these methods, we are obliged to add an extra transaction fee to the rental price. Correct fees will be provided at the time of booking from the accommodation provider.
ISSUES OR COMPLAINTS AT THE PROPERTY
We publish the details given to us by the property advertiser. We are not responsible for the details of this or the property once you choose to rent this, we are only responsible for the advertising vehicle via which you found the property/ies. Therefore if you have any possible problems and/or complaints with regard to the property itself, or the advertiser, this is between yourself and the person / agency responsible for the property, as it is their responsibility to ensure that their property meets the correct standards and laws for renting.

We offer free membership for use of the full system provided until you are ready for your villa’s to go live onto the website. As soon as a plan is chosen as payment is confirmed, we will look at the approval of all the villa’s you have listed as a user.
All enquiries & booking requests will be sent directly to your Email address for you to personally respond & control therefore we are in no way involved with your Bookings and will not be responsible for any errors or changes to the listings.
Commission based plan – you will need to contact us with all the information that we require listed on our ‘Advertise with us’ page. All commissions will be required as soon as the first deposit payment from the renter has been confirmed. White Island Villas will invoice your company for this agreed commission. All commissions paid are final, in the same way that your terms should outline that all deposits are final and non-refundable should a client choose to cancel at a later date post payment of such.
Your adverts will benefit from the ongoing advertising schemes we run, including ongoing Search engine optimisations to ensure first page positions on all top search engines such as Google, Yahoo, etc, key worded articles & social media posts. This service therefore provides you with world wide exposure of your property across the Internet, listed for any user searching for any relevant information to any of the content on our website. Essentially we are here to offer an easy, cheap & professional link between yourself: the property renter and any person/s who wish to rent property in the Spanish Islands for their holiday.
We are in no way a Travel Agency, nor a Property Rental Agency, we are purely and solely an Advertising and intermediary Service for people who wish to advertise their property on for rent. We are therefore in no way responsible for the properties themselves, nor do we offer any other type of Holiday Services.
To clarify further, if you opt for our Flat Rate Annual Fee account, we will have no contact at all with any clients enquiring for your property. If you opt for our Commission based account, we will secure you bookings (based on the information you have supplied on your advert), then upon confirmation of such booking, the client will then liaise directly and solely with you to finalise the booking and confirm any deposit payment details, and we will have no further contact with the client regarding such booking.
As outlined above, we are purely and solely an Advertising Service, therefore we are also in no way responsible for any problems which could arise from renting out your property, nor are we responsible for any damages which could occur to your property, or the contents of such, as a result of renting this out.
You are also fully responsible for ensuring that, before you advertise, your property complies to all Laws relating to Property Rentals in the Spanish Islands.
We cannot guarantee that by advertising with us you will get definite bookings, this is purely down to the product / purchaser. We are here to act as an advertising vehicle to ensure that your property is on display to be seen and get more exposure for potential renters.
