Booking Your Holiday
A booking is accepted only after we receive your credit card details (and subsequent pre-authorization of the Total Booking Value to guarantee your booking and/or Cancellation Penalty, if applicable) or upon either full or partial payment for your accommodation as may be agreed for Group Bookings from time to time directly with guests organizing events at Podere Conti requiring a material number of rooms to be booked. (This may be waived solely at the discretion of Podere Conti.)
If balance of payment is due for your travel arrangements/hotel reservation, the balance payment must be paid by you at check-in.
Methods of Payment
Payments for full or part payment for the travel arrangements/ hotel reservation may be made either by 1) bank transfer or 2) credit card (Visa, Mastercard, CartaSi, American Express, Diners). If paid via bank transfer, all additional charges and fees related to the transfer will be borne by you. If paying by credit card you can either pay through the secure internet payment gateway facility available via our channel manager’s website hotelrunner.com or by physically presenting the credit card at check-in. The HotelRunner application servers download the reservation information including cardholder data from 3rd party partners' legacy systems and transmits the card holder data to a secure vault service provided by TokenEx LLC. TokenEx gives a token for a specific card information and HotelRunner persists the only token information. In the event you prefer to pay at check-in, your credit card details will be asked at the time of booking to secure your booking and any eventual cancellation penalty. These credit card details will be checked by effectuating a pre-authorisation for the total booking value on the card which consents for a deferred payment of the amount authorized either at check-in or, in the event of a cancellation within the window of 14 days prior to arrival date, the cancellation penalty equal to 100% of total booking value.
