7. Exchanging properties
A property advertisement on our website relates to a specific property, and this property must not be substituted for another by way of changes to the text and photographs unless prior permission has been given to the Advertiser. If an Advertiser is found to have changed the property being described, we reserve the right to suspend the advert in question.
8. Availability calendar accuracy
It is a requirement of your advertising contract with us that your availability calendar accurately reflects the availability for the advertised property at the time the calendar is updated. Misrepresentation of availability calendar of the advertised property is misleading to site users. We reserve the right to withdraw the calendar availability facility or terminate the advertisements concerned, without refund, where we believe calendars to be misleading.
9. Availability calendar updating
The Advertiser agrees to update availability calendars on a minimum time period of once (1) per week. This includes confirming if there have been no changes in that period. Failure to provide the minimum frequency of updates will affect advert performance and the users search experience. We reserve the right to withdraw the calendar facility from adverts where availability is considerably out of date. Adverts that repeatedly fail to meet this minimum requirement will be terminated without refund.
10. We reserve the right to request accurate updating of rental rates tables from advertisers
Failure to act on such requests, continued failure to accurately reflect available pricing, or sustained complaints from Guests / Renters about misleading advertised pricing will result in termination of advertising, without refund.

b) If an Advertiser attempts to enter unsuitable material into the online database, or persistently misuses the online systems, we reserve the right to remove the associated advertisement from our website and full payment will be retained.

No refunds will be given If an Advertiser is in breach of these terms from 11 a) to 11 d) and we may remove the advertisement from our site without notice and without refund.
12. Ability to contact an advertiser
In the interest of maintaining a high level of service to Guests / Renters using our website, we require all Advertisers to be available to respond to enquiries by telephone or email. Should Advertisers be unavailable for a period of more than one week, we ask them to leave an answer phone message to that effect or to set up an out of office response on their email account. If neither of these options is viable, we ask that Advertisers contact us so we can temporarily suspend their advert. We reserve the right to suspend adverts of Advertisers who are unreachable for more than one week. In this instance we will send messages by telephone and email asking for the Advertiser to request re-activation upon their return.
13. Guest reviews
All reviews must be genuine comments from your Guests / Renters. We reserve the right to request the email address of the Guests / Renters whose comments are included for the purposes of verification.
14. Unauthorized payment options
No Advertiser should request payment from a Guest / Renter via an instant cash wire transfer system such as Western Union or Money Gram transfer. Neither may you request payment by cash sent by post. Such actions may result in immediate termination of your advertising. Payment should be accepted via credit card, bank transfer or PayPal only.
15. External links
We reserve the right to remove from advertisements both email addresses and links to external websites which either do not conform to the guidelines provided, or which we feel are not appropriate, or act against the interests of us or our Advertisers. The ultimate responsibility and authority for determining the aforementioned rests solely with us. Should an Advertiser add a link or email address without consent, re-add a link or email address after its removal or remove reciprocated links from their website, we reserve the right to cancel their advertising without refund.
Advertisements can be paid for on an annual basis only, via Paypal, bank transfer and all major credit cards.
