Policies, Procedures, Fees & Release
Property Protection Insurance
I understand that the $79 plus tax premium per property per booking mandatory insurance is added to my account for my convenience and peace of mind. I understand that whilst I remain responsible for any damages that are not covered by this policy, by paying the insurance premium I will not be charged for damages that are clearly accidental and of an incidental nature (upto $1500 maximum). I understand that I may obtain a copy of the written terms and condition specific to the insurance policy upon request. With the exception of the foregoing, I understand that I am responsible for the cost of any damage or breakages sustained to the property or its contents by any member of my party or myself or for any excessive cleaning charges or garbage disposal. Where garbage has not been bagged in the garbage bags supplied I understand that a fee of $50 will apply. Furthermore I understand that if excessive garbage is left inside the property I will be charged $50. I agree that any relevant costs together with the cost of any additional services requested may be charged to the credit card provided herewith.
I understand that all Birdie Vacation Florida homes are non-smoking and that the smoking of any kind in the property will incur a fee of $400.
I understand that no pets of any kind are allowed in the property at any time unless the property description clearly states “Pets Allowed”. I agree to pay a non-refundable fee of $400 for each pet in a property regardless of the length of that pet’s stay. Where pets are found to have stayed in a property where pets are not allowed I agree to pay the increased fee of $800 per pet.
I understand that the maximum occupancy of the property is 2 persons per bedroom plus 2 persons if the property has a sofa bed and that occupancy limits may not be exceeded. I understand that failure to comply with the maximum occupancy may result in expulsion from the property without refund and may also constitute a violation of State Law.
I agree that all members of the party shall vacate the property by 10.00am on the day of departure stated except where a late check out has been approved by your Reservations department the day prior to departure and the late check out fee has been paid. If a late check out has not been approved and paid for, I agree that a minimum charge of 1 night’s accommodation at the prevailing rack rate will apply for departures occurring after 10.00am.
Keys and Garage remotes
I undertake to return these to the lock box in front of the house and that failure to do so will incur a fee of $60 per key and $50 per remote.
Keys/Key Cards/Access Codes
I understand that these can be issued only once full payment has been made, you have received a copy of my Government issued ID and major credit card and all registration details have been provided.
Admittance at Birdie Vacation Florida or IPG’s Discretion
I understand that the property is privately owned and that Birdie Vacation Florida or IPG reserves the right to refuse admission and/or service to anyone at Birdie Vacation Florida’s sole discretion.
I understand and agree that neither the homeowner nor Birdie Vacation Florida nor IPG will be held responsible for any accidents or injuries sustained nor shall either be responsible for the loss of money, jewelry or possessions of any kind.
I, and the rest of my party, in consideration of the use of the swimming facilities at the property (if applicable), hereby expressly assume all risks associated with our use of the swimming facilities and hereby release and hold harmless Birdie Vacation Florida, IPG Professional Management, Inc., IPG Franchising, Inc, IPG of America, Inc., IPG Property Holdings, Inc and any and all parent companies, subsidiaries, affiliates, directors, officers, agents, employees, successors, and assigns (the “Releasees”) from and against any and all claims, damages, liabilities, costs, expenses, including reasonable attorneys’ fees, arising out of our use of the swimming facilities, whether or not caused by the negligence or negligent omission of Releasees, or any of them, including, without limitation, any personal injuries or damages to our property, notwithstanding the foreseeability of such injuries or damages, which may occur as a result of our use of the swimming facilities. This Release and Waiver of Liability shall be governed by the law of the State of Florida without reference to its conflicts of law rules. I warrant I am at least 21 years of age and that I have read and fully understand the foregoing terms.
