- Bed sheets and towels (if supplied) must all be accounted for and must not be stained or damaged.
- All sets of keys must be deposited in the specified place and the property must remain locked. The keys for the parking (if there are any) must be left inside the property upon leaving.
- The renter has not been evicted by the owner (or their representative) or by the local police.
Any breakages or damages must be communicated to A1 Rentals Estartit. We will use the security deposit to repair any damages to the property, furnishings or accessories, or if additional cleaning is required. By accepting our Terms and Conditions, you agree that any damage you or your companions cause will be deducted from the deposit and for any damage exceeding the deposit amount, you authorise A1 Rentals Estartit to charge to you on your credit card.
When any damage or incident occurs, A1 Rentals Estartit will send you the invoice for repair and any fees for A1 Rentals Estartit’s management of said incident amounting to €50 (incl. VAT).
On entering the property, you have 8 hours to report any incident that you consider relevant. Once this has been exceeded, A1 Rentals Estartit will assume that the property is in perfect condition. If you have any cause for complaint whilst on holiday you must bring it to the attention of myself and I will do my best to rectify the situation. (It is unreasonable to take no action whilst on holiday and then to write a letter of complaint upon return).
However, should a problem remain unresolved, you should make a complaint in writing within 21 days of completion of your holiday. I cannot accept liability if you fail to notify me strictly in accordance with this paragraph.
It should be noted that where television is supplied in the properties this does not always specify UK, Dutch, German or French satellite T.V.
Not all properties have free wifi, and A1 Rentals Estartit cannot take responsibility if the connection speed is low during peak times. Wifi with SIM data cards, have an allocated data of 10GB per week (normally sufficient for usual email, messenger usage, but not for excessive downloads and uploads.) Data used over this amount will be charged for.
(Money Refunds: A1 Rentals Estartit will not make rental refunds after 56 days prior to arrival, unless I am able to rebook the property for the same dates. In case of justified returns by death in the family, illness or otherwise, you would have to make a claim with your insurance company.)
If you have to cancel your stay for any reason, you must notify me in writing. To compensate me for the processing fee of your booking and for the risk that I may not be able to resell the vacation, I charge the cancellation fee on the scale below:
More than 56 days: 25 euros administration fee.
29-56 days: 70% of total amount
21-28 days: 80% of total amount
0-20 days: 100% of total amount
Cancellations due to extenuating circumstances (after the 56 days), ie. COVID; you will be offered a credit note for the full amount already paid, valid for 24 months, which can be used for any of A1 Rentals Estartit properties.
There may be circumstances beyond my control, which make it necessary to materially alter your holiday arrangements. In the unlikely event of this happening I will notify you immediately. I will then offer you alternative accommodation or give you a full refund of all monies paid.
You and your companions undertake to abide by the rules laid down by the property.
You undertake to maintain and leave the property and the furnishings clean and in good condition, including all kitchen utensils, plates and glasses, as well as towels and sheets.
You undertake not to cause damage to the walls, doors, windows or any other part of the property, nor to do anything which could cause inconvenience or annoyance.
You undertake to do whatever necessary to protect your personal belongings while on the property.

You undertake NOT to allow more people to stay in the property than those declared in the booking, nor to modify the composition of the group during your stay, nor allow entry to pets to the property without prior authorisation in writing on our part. If this occurs, we reserve the right to deny you access to the property or to request you to leave it. These circumstances will be considered a cancellation on your part and we will not be obliged to reimburse you any of the amounts paid. Any payment returned will be entirely at our discretion.
You undertake to authorise A1 Rentals Estartit or its representative access to the property at any moment during your stay with the aim of carrying out repairs, in case of an emergency or simply to ensure ourselves that you are fulfilling the conditions of the Booking Contract.
