1.4 If there is an inconsistency between any of the provisions of this English language version and a translated version, the provisions of this English language version shall prevail. Any translated versions of these Terms shall be for convenience only.
2.1 Through MaltaVillageHolidays We provide an online platform through which temporary accommodation (for example, hotels, motels, hostels, bed & breakfasts and holiday lettings, collectively the “accommodation(s)”), can advertise their rooms or entire property for reservation, and through which visitors to the website can make such reservations. By making a reservation through MaltaVillageHolidays, you enter into a direct and legally binding contractual relationship with the accommodation provider at which you book. From the point at which you make your reservation, we act solely as an intermediary between you and the accommodation, transmitting the details of your reservation to the relevant accommodation provider and sending you a confirmation email for and on behalf of the accommodation provider.
2.2 When rendering our services, the information that we disclose is based on the information provided to us by accommodation providers. Although we will use reasonable skill and care in performing our services we will not verify if, and cannot guarantee that, all information is accurate, complete or correct, nor can we be held responsible for any errors (including manifest and typographical errors), any interruptions (whether due to any (temporary and/or partial) breakdown, repair, upgrade or maintenance of our website or otherwise), inaccurate, misleading or untrue information or non-delivery of information.
2.3 You acknowledge and accept that We do not consider that we act as a travel agent generally in relation to the provision of our Service or in respect of Your actual rental transactions concluded with Hosts as We are not a party to such actual rental transactions and We do not buy-in, re-sell or provide accommodation.
2.4 Our services are made available for personal and non-commercial use only. Therefore, you are not allowed to re-sell, deep-link, use, copy, monitor (e.g. spider, scrape), display, download or reproduce any content or information, software, products or services available on our website for any commercial or competitive activity or purpose.
3 Financial Consideration

MaltaVillageHolidays will collect the booking deposit at the time of booking confirmation. The remaining balance shall be paid directly by the Guests to the Accommodation Provider as indicated in the Confirmation Email.

You understand and agree that these views of fees are for informational purposes only and are not the official. The currency in which you will be charged is Euro.
5.1 By making a reservation for accommodation, you accept and agree to the general cancellation and no-show policy, and to any additional house rules of the Accommodation Provider that may apply to your reservation or during your stay. The general cancellation and no-show policy requires a payment equivalent to the booking deposit for bookings that are cancelled by the Guests or for which the Guests do not check in.
5.2 If you wish to review, adjust or cancel your reservation, please contact us by email on [email protected] quoting your reference number. Please note that you may be charged for your cancellation in accordance with the general cancellation and no-show policy.
6. Cancellations by MaltaVillageHolidays

7.2 If You cause damage to an Accommodation Provider’s property in which You are staying, You must fully reimburse the Accommodation Provider concerned for the cost of the damage. You must also indemnify Us for the full amount of any claim made against Us by the Accommodation Provider or any third party as a result.
8. Disputes and Refunds
8.1 If You have a problem during your stay, please inform the Accommodation Provider immediately. Since Your booking is a contract direct between You and the Accommodation Provider, the Accommodation Provider will have sole discretion in deciding how to deal with Your complaint. You will however be solely responsible to resolve any dispute arising out of or related to the stay directly with the Accommodation Provider. Any refunds will be at the Accommodation Provider’s discretion, and limited to the Accommodation Fees.
