1. About www.theglobalretreatcompany.com
www.theglobalretreatcompany.com is a website that is made up of a curated collection of descriptions of retreat venues, accommodation, holiday and other related services and arrangements (“Travel Services”) provided by companies who we promote on our website (“Travel Suppliers”).
All such Travel Services are provided by independent suppliers, hotels, tour operators or other third parties and it is these Travel Suppliers that are responsible for providing, setting or controlling the prices applicable to any of the Travel Services displayed on The Global Retreat Company.
We have no involvement in or control over any of the Travel Services that are provided by Travel Suppliers and it is the Travel Suppliers that are responsible for providing any Travel Services that we may feature.
2. Display and Accuracy of Travel Services
The information, photographs and other descriptive content featured on our website are collated and written by our own writers or, in the case of photographs only, are provided to us by Travel Suppliers or other third parties. We make reasonable efforts to ensure that all such content provides a fair and accurate representation of the Travel Services in question, however, all such content is written based on the opinions of our writers and opinions are subjective.
While our writers are providing their subjective opinions on the Travel Services that we feature, we do not provide any endorsements, support, representations, guarantees or warranties as to the quality, safety, standard or hygiene of the Travel Services that we feature. Occasionally, problems mean that some facilities or services stated as being available in certain Travel Services become unavailable or subject to restriction. We can not accept responsibility for any changes or closures to amenities or attractions mentioned on our website.
Should you therefore wish to make a booking of any Travel Services, it remains your responsibility to fully satisfy yourself as to the suitability, adequacy and appropriateness of the Travel Services that are of interest to you and it is your sole decision whether to purchase any Travel Services from a Travel Supplier.
Please note, any information or prices, including discount offers, which may be shown on our website from time to time may have changed by the time you come to book with any of the Travel Suppliers who are featured on our site. Since we have no control over the Travel Services it is not possible for us to guarantee the prices displayed on our website. Whilst reasonable efforts are made to ensure the accuracy of the prices and information provided, regrettably prices change and errors do occasionally occur. You must therefore ensure you check all details of your chosen Travel Services (including the price) with your chosen Travel Supplier(s) at the time of booking.
3. Making a Booking of Travel Services
When displaying Travel Services our website will provide links to contact or visit the website of the applicable Travel Supplier.
As such, should you decide to make a booking of any Travel Services featured on our website, you will need to make that booking with the Travel Supplier directly and you will, therefore, enter into a contract with the applicable Travel Supplier for the Travel Services you have purchased. We will not be a party to that contract and will have no responsibility for any Travel Services provided or for anything that may go wrong during the provision of the Travel Services.
Nothing on this website constitutes an offer by us to sell to you any of the Travel Services or to enter into any contract with you in respect of any Travel Services.
