- PRICES AND PAYMENT
Unless otherwise mentioned, all the prices are stated in Euro per villa per week. The payment by credit cards is made in EURO. If you have a different currency on your credit card a conversion to Euros will be made by your credit card company.
The reservation is binding, and an advance payment in the amount of 30% of the agreed accommodation price is required at the reservation, after which the reservation is confirmed, the contract with the owner is concluded and these General conditions which make a constituent part of the villa rental contract are accepted. After the completion of the reservation process and payment ISTRIASELECT shall send a written reservation confirmation by email, which contains all the necessary information about the accommodation and along with these General conditions it represents a Rental contract concluded with the owner with the mediation of the agency ISTRIASELECT. The rental contract is considered concluded at the moment when ISTRIASELECT receives the paid advance amount. In case that the payment is not made within 7 (seven) days from the reservation day, the Rental contract is deemed terminated, and ISTRIASELECT is authorised to conclude a new Rental contract with another guest, without a special notice to the guest. The costs of water, gas, electric power and internet as well as bed-linen, towels, kitchen towels, final cleaning of the interior, maintenance of the swimming-pool and exterior, registration of stay and residential tax and the value added tax are included in the accommodation rental price. The permitted payment methods for the advance payment are: credit cards (Master Card, Visa, Maestro and Discover cards), pay pal and bank transfer. The amount that will be charged on your foreign credit card is in Euros (EUR). If you have a different currency on your credit card conversion to Euros will be made by your credit card company. As a result of this conversion it is possible to have small deviations between the price shown on our web site and the one charged on your credit card. For the payments over the bank transfer and pay pal the charge is also made in EUR and there is no possibility of exchange rate differences. ISTRIASELECT cannot be responsiblefor the exchange rate differences or fees of other bank institutions.
For the rest payment (70% of the agreed accommodation price) all payment methods like for the advance payment are permitted. The payment by credit cards, pay pal and bank transfer has to be made no later than 30 days before the arrival to the villa so that ISTRIASELECT has enough time for forwarding the payment to the owner.
In case of reservation cancelation all the payments which are made to ISTRIASELECT cannot be returned because ISTRIASELECT forwards the payments to the owners according to an agreement with owners. We recommend to contract an insurance policy for the case of a reservation cancellation from the clause 6 of these conditions which is offered in cooperation with the Allianz osiguranje d.d. in the villa reservation process or to contract an own travel insurance which covers the travel cancellation risk.
3.1. Reservations which were made 30 days and more before the beginning of the rental
For the reservations which were made 30 days or more before the beginning of the rental period,
the following conditions shall apply:
- a) advance payment of 30 % of the total agreed accommodation price is due for payment IMMEDIATELY if the payment method over a credit card or pay pal is selected. If the payment over bank transfers is selected, the paid advance payment has to be received by ISTRIASELECT within 7 (seven) days;
- b) the rest of 70 % of the total agreed accommodation price is due for payment no later than 30 (thirty) days before the beginning of the rental period if the payment is made by credit cards, bank transfer or pay pal. If the payment in cash is selected (in the villas in which that possibility is permitted which is mentioned on the web page of ISTRIASELECT) the rest of 70% is due for payment immediately after the guest`s arrival, and the guest is obliged to pay the rest immediately directly to the owner. There is no possibility to pay electronically (cards/pay pal) in the villa.
3.2. Reservations which were made 30 days and less before the beginning of the rental period
- a) The total rental amount is due IMMEDIATELY for payment by credit cards, bank transfers and pay pal. It is not possible to select a bank transfer as a payment method if the arrival date is less than 15 days at the moment of making a reservation.
- b) In case that the guest selects the payment of a part of the agreed accommodation price in cash (in villas in which that possibility is permitted, which is marked on the web page ISTRIASELECT) the advance payment in the amount of 30% from the total agreed accommodation price is due IMMEDIATELY for payment, and the rest of 70% is due for payment immediately after the guest`s arrival, and the guest is obliged to pay immediately the rest directly to the owner. There is no possibility to pay electronically (cards/pay pal) in the villa.
3.3. Non-observance of the payment due dates
The guest is obliged to make payments within the period and in a way described in this clause of the General Conditions. If the guest does not obey the payment due dates, such behaviour is considered a severe breach of contract obligations and the Rental Contract is considered terminated without the notice period, and ISTRIASELECT is not obliged to inform the guest about it. ISTRIASELECT shall, although it is not obliged, but in accordance with its business policy of a special appreciation of its guests, send the guest a notice as a reminder of the payment obligation with an appropriate fulfilment period before the contract termination if possible. At the occasion of the contract termination no payments made to ISTRIASELECT shall be returned.
- CANCELLATION AND CHANGES
4.1. A concluded rental contract can be cancelled only in writing (by email). The cancellation is effective only from the day when ISTRIASELECT received such a cancellation notice and only under the conditions from this Clause.
4.2. In case of cancellation of the Rental contract all the received payments until the cancellation date shall be retained, and the guest is not entitled to their return. ISTRIASELECT recommends the guests to contract the insurance policy for the reservation cancellation from the Clause 6 of these conditions, which is offered in cooperation with the Allianz osiguranje d.d. (Allianz Insurance Plc) in the process of villa reservation or to contract an own travel insurance which covers the risk of travel cancellation.
4.3. In case that the guest can find another guest as his substitute in the same period, for the same price and under the same conditions, ISTRIASELECT shall transfer immediately after a written receipt of all necessary data about the new guest the Rental contract to a new guest, and it shall send him/her a written confirmation about it. The already received accommodation price sums shall be retained by ISTRIASELECT after the transferred contract, and the new guest is obliged to pay the rest up to the total accommodation price depending on the previously selected payment method which makes an integral part of the contract.
4.4. An additional change of the villa is not possible, and all the received payments are retained because ISTRIASELECT as an agent has a concluded Agency Contract for the provision of accommodation services with the villa owners who are various physical persons or legal entities, and an invoice is issued at the reservation, the tax is paid and the money is paid to the owner.
4.5 In case that the object is not available for the rent due to the Act of God such as earthquake, flood, fire etc. ISTRIASELECT and the owner are not liable for the cancelled reservations. If it is possible the guest shall be offered an alternative accommodation or return of the money paid until then.
- DEPOSIT IN CASE OF DAMAGE
The guest is obliged, if he/she has no insurance policy for the property damage liability from the clause 6 of these Conditions, to leave a deposit in cash on the arrival to the villa for the insurance of the possible caused damages. The deposit sum which the guest is obliged to give to the owner at the arrival shall be stated in a written reservation confirmation. The deposit serves as a security to the owner for caused damages in the villa, and the owner is entitled to cover the damage from the deposit. In case that the caused damage is higher than the deposited sum, the guest is obliged to pay the total damage amount to the owner. If no damage is caused to the villa, the owner is obliged to return the deposited sum to the guest at the takeover of keys at the guest`s departure.
The guest is obliged to behave responsibly towards the rented villa with an appropriate observance. The guest is obliged to return the villa in the condition in which he/she received it. For any caused damage the guest is liable directly to the owner. If the guest has no insurance from the Clause 6.1. of these Conditions, the owner is entitled to use a deposit to cover the sum of the actual damage in accordance with the Clause 5 of these Conditions. If the deposit sum does not cover the damage the guest is obliged to pay the difference up to the total damage amount directly to the owner.
An intentional property damage or disturbance of public order is considered a severe breach of provisions of the Rental contract, in which case the owner and/or ISTRIASELECT are authorized to terminate the Rental contract which comes into force immediately, without the notice period, and the guest is obliged to permanently leave the villa within 2(two) hours together with all the persons which stay there, and he/she is not entitled to demand a return of the paid accommodation price from the owner or ISTRIASELECT.
The guest is obliged to report to the owner immediately the occurrence of any kind of damage on the villa or property around the villa during the rental period.

In case no damage is caused, the owner is obliged to return the deposit from the Clause 5 of these Conditions, if he/she received it, to the guest, and in case of the caused damage, if the guest has the insurance from the Clause 6.1, he/she is obliged to act in accordance with the insurance conditions.
It can be considered that a damage is also a need for an additional cleaning due to the especially bad condition in which the guest returned the villa to the owner, and the owner is entitled to use a deposit to cover that damage or demand an immediate payment if the guest has a property damage insurance from the Clause 6.1. of these Conditions.
ISTRIASELECT has no liability for the possibly caused damages to the owner or to the guest if he/ she does not want to return the deposit. All possible disputes the owner and the guest shall settle among themselves without ISTRIASELECT.
- ADDITIONAL SERVICES
The use of telephone is not included in the accommodation price, but it can be agreed directly with an owner if there is a possibility. The calculation method for the use of phone is a subject of the agreement between the guest and the owner. If a use of phone is agreed as an additional service the owner is entitled to demand from the guest to leave a higher deposit from the Clause 5 of these Conditions than the deposit mentioned in the Confirmation.
8.2. Other additional services
If the guest has special requests which are not included in the accommodation price (such as cooks, waiters, special food etc.) they shall be fulfilled, if there is a possibility, by the owner or a third party. Additional services must be announced in advance by email in order to be fulfilled, if there is a possibility, in the top quality. ISTRIASELECT neither provides additional services nor charges them, but only gives a support in their arrangement, and ISTRIASELECT cannot be considered liable for the quality of services provided by third parties.
- DAMAGES, COMPLAINTS AND REPAIR

Written complaints are delivered to the email address: firstname.lastname@example.org.
It is an obligation of the guest to try to avoid the damage occurrence or its expansion and to contribute the effort to minimise any loss for the owner. In case of filing of any complaints the guest is obliged to give an appropriate term to the owner to settle the complaint.
ISTRIASELECT has examined the object condition at the contract conclusion with the owner, and it is not liable for possible additional deviations from the provided information mentioned on the web page. The guest`s departure from the villa before the end of the foreseen rent and without the previous notice and agreement with ISTRIASELECT shall be at risk and costs of the guest, and ISTRIASELECT has no liability. If the guest does not leave an appropriate term to the object owner for the removal of irregularities related to the damage repair or move to another villa he/she loses right to them, and in that case he/she cannot terminate the concluded Rental Contract.

The owner is liable directly to the tenant for the failures, and ISTRIASELECT shall undertake everything possible to repair or remove the failures or other irregularities in the shortest possible period.
- ISTRIASELECT AS AN AGENT
ISTRIASELECT is a tourist agency which provides agency services in the villa rent on the basis of an agency contract on provision of accommodation services concluded with the villa owners, and it is not their owner. The owner is obliged in the contract with ISTRIASELECT to give true and complete information about the villa, and therefore he/she takes over a full responsibility towards the guest. If in opposition to the expectations of ISTRIASELECT the accommodation reservation cannot be completed due to the reasons which are out of control of ISTRIASELECT, such as due to the sale on the basis of the court order or due to severe contract breach by the owner or something similar, ISTRIASELECT is authorised to cancel the reservation, and the agreed amount which was already paid by the guest, shall be returned to him/her without delay. As an alternative and on the basis of the selection of the guest, ISTRIASELECT can offer another, similar villa for the same price to the guest.
- ACT OF GOD – Force majeure
In case that the concluded Rental contract cannot be fulfilled or its fulfilment becomes significantly difficult due to an act of god (e.g. war, natural disaster, environmental disaster, epidemics, closing of borders, strike and similar act of god) which could not be foreseen at the time of the rental contract conclusion, ISTRIASELECT and the owner may terminate the Rental Contract as neither ISTRIASELECT, nor the owner can be deemed liable in the above mentioned cases.
