We act as intermediaries between accommodation providers and site users to provide an accommodation reservation service for hotels, hostels, bed & breakfasts, apartments and rural guest houses. Our service is based on the information provided to us by the accommodation owners. We make every effort to ensure that the information provided on this website is accurate. EnGrande accepts no responsibility whatsoever for the accuracy of information provided by third parties, nor interruptions in services of any kind.
The mentioned websites, their contents and infrastructure used to provide said information, belongs exclusively to "EnGrande, Sociedad Limitada". The user hereby agrees to use this website for personal ends which do not include the direct or indirect personal financial gain of the user. The user also agrees to use this website in a lawful manner and in no way which is prohibited by these conditions and the law.
3. Credit card guarantee
Our collaborating accommodation requires the user’s credit card details in order to secure the reservation. This information is supplied directly to the accommodation where the reservation has been made*.
When making a reservation, the client directly accepts an agreement with the accommodation chosen. "EnGrande, Sociedad Limitada" will directly charge the client’s credit card a prepayment which corresponds to between 10% and 25% of the total cost of the reservation for the intermediary service. When this has been completed, it means that the reservation has been confirmed and the accommodation availability will be blocked for the dates of your reservation. The remaining amount of the total charge will be paid directly upon your arrival at the accommodation (unless otherwise indicated).
*We have 'Secure Sockets Layer' (SSL) software from VeriSign which guarantees encryption of credit card data sent via the Internet, preventing third party access to this information. This software ensures that every transaction is 100% secure.
Some hotels have a policy to carry out pre-authorisations of the credit card to confirm the reservation. They may do it before the client’s date of arrival in order to check that the card is still valid and to verify that there is enough credit to cover the cost of the reservation. If the card is not valid or does not have enough credit to cover the amount due to be paid on arrival, we urge the client to get in contact with the accommodation and provide details of a valid card. If there is an error during the pre-authorisation process, the hotel may cancel the reservation. It is therefore very important that the client makes sure the credit card used during the reservation process is valid and has enough credit until the day of arrival to avoid the reservation being cancelled.
PayPal payment conditions
The customer must make sure that the billing agreement with us remains active until the check-out date has passed, to avoid the cancellation of their reservation.
4. Cancellations and no-show policy
Please be aware that all accommodation applies its own specific cancellation policies, details of which are shown during the booking process on the web page and also on the confirmation e-mail.
To cancel a reservation written notification must be sent by e-mail to firstname.lastname@example.org within the time limit specified by the accommodation's cancellation policy as stated on the confirmation e-mail. Please check the confirmation e-mail, which details the applicable cancellation policy for further information.
The client may also cancel a reservation using the Auto Cancellation facility. Simply go to the My budgetplaces section of the website where you made the reservation and enter your e-mail address. You will automatically receive an e-mail containing a URL link. Open the e-mail and click on the link to access your reservation details (note: all reservations you may have made via EnGrande website will be listed; please ensure you select the correct reservation). Click the CANCEL button. You will subsequently receive an automatically generated e-mail with the details of the reservation confirming the cancellation. Please note, the cancellation policy of the accommodation is also applicable to the use of this facility.
Cancellation will entail a penalty fee equivalent to the amount paid online to reserve the stay, which corresponds to between 10% and 25% of the total cost of the stay at the accommodation. In the case of partial cancellation, the penalty fee shall be reduced proportionally.
If the reservation is cancelled by notifying us before 12:00 midday (local time at destination) on the day specified in the cancellations policy indicated during the reservation process and in the reservation confirmation, the client will receive a discount offer equivalent to the penalty fee, to use towards the online payment of future reservations operated by EnGrande. The discount offer shall be valid for a period of 6 months. Please note that we must charge a minimum of €1 for each reservation. EnGrande reserves the right to not award the client the discount at its own discretion.
If the reservation is cancelled by notifying us after 12:00 midday (local time at destination) on the day specified in the cancellations policy indicated during the reservation process and in the reservation confirmation, or if the client simply does not show up at the accommodation (no-show), without having contacted us within the cancellation period specified by the accommodation in the reservation confirmation, the accommodation will charge a penalty fee in accordance with its cancellation conditions. The amount paid online will not be reimbursed and the client shall not benefit from the discount offer. Should the client decide upon arrival not to use their reservation, or to only make use of part of it, the accommodation owner has the right to be compensated according to his own policy. In both cases, the amount paid online will not be refunded.
EnGrande acts in good faith as an intermediary in contracting your reservation, which is then confirmed by the accommodation provider. The accommodation provider is ultimately responsible for providing the accommodation, and it is the sole responsibility of the accommodation provider to respond to any incident with regards to the final provision of accommodation. EnGrande, in reciprocity with the user in the clause titled "Cancellation and No-Show Policy", assumes responsibility only of the amount paid online to reserve the stay. If and when fault or negligence is found on EnGrande’s part as an intermediary in the provision of information, EnGrande will be liable only up to a maximum amount of the money pre-paid online by the customer.
By paying the Cancellation Fee Protection, if for any reason you need to cancel your reservation within the time limit specified during the booking process and also on the confirmation e-mail, we will refund the amount you paid online; otherwise the same amount will be credited to your My Budgetplaces account. Cancellation after the time limit or no-show will still incur the fees listed by the establishment, the amount you initially paid online will not be refunded and you will not benefit from the discount. Cancellation Fee Protection is not refundable.
If a non-refundable reservation is cancelled the amount paid online will not be refunded, you will not benefit from the discount and you will be charged 100% of the outstanding balance by the hotelier (if this was not already charged when the reservation was made).
5. Consumer obligation
In order to deal with any complaint, the consumer or user is informed of their obligation to present a complaint form in the service provider’s name or by any other written means which states any breach of contract experienced in-situ, as soon as possible and within a maximum period of 48 hours from the date of arrival, both to the service provider (accommodation reserved) in question and to EnGrande. If the consumer fails to communicate their complaint in the period of time and by the method stated, they must be able to prove the alleged breach of contract according to the established general proof criteria, and any damage caused by or made worse by their failure to communicate will be the consumer’s responsibility.
6. Reservation changes
If the client wishes to make changes to their reservation, they must send an email to email@example.com, from the same email address used for the reservation, within the deadline indicated during the reservation process and in the confirmation email, specifying the required changes. Changes to a reservation will always be made subject to current availability, prices, conditions and any active special offers or discounts. If the amount to be paid online for the modified reservation is less than the original prepayment, as penalty fee the difference will be given as a discount to use towards future reservations on our website. By paying the Cancellation Fee Protection, this difference will be refunded. Should the amount to be paid online for the modified reservation be more than the original prepayment, you will be charged the difference. We inform you that, once the time limit stated in the reservation confirmation email has passed, we cannot accept requests for changes to the reservation and the part paid online will not be reimbursed.
Reservation changes which involve reducing the number of people or nights in the original reservation shall be understood as a partial cancellation and, as a consequence, the Cancellation and No-Show Policy (clause 4) shall be applicable proportionally.
Changes are not possible with non-refundable reservations.
