In the case of a booking that would be confirmed and finalised less than 30 days before the arrival, the acceptance of the offer does imply the obligation to pay the whole of the total price.
The payment of the deposit or of the whole of the total price for the service serves as a firm order.
2-4 Booking confirmation.
www.spainpromo.com , in its partners’ name, will transmit to you, as soon as possible and within the two days upon reception of your booking confirmation and proof of payment, by email which is therefore a long-lasting medium, your order confirmation that resumes all the characteristic features of your request.
The site meanwhile informs the landlord of the property you have selected about your booking and forwards them your booking terms and contact details.
The accommodation offers are constantly updated and managed in real-time.
However, if several users are interested in the same property at the same time, the first to conclude the booking (including the payment) has right of way.
Thus, if the offer you were interested in turned out to have been already booked or has become unavailable in the course of the booking process (before confirmation), the site would immediately inform you and suggest to you an alternative solution.
If, nevertheless, you did not accept this solution, all information concerning you would be completely deleted from our database, and all processed payments would be paid back as soon as possible.
2-5 Absence of the right to withdraw.
By applying the terms of the article 16-l of the Directive nº 2011/83/UE made public on October, 25th, 2011, the present service is not subject to the consumer’s right to withdraw.
The booking of an accommodation for determined dates and periods in accordance with all desired characteristics is therefore firm.

In the case of the booking being processed more than 30 days before the determined date of arrival, the balance of the price (70%) will have to be paid by bank transfer to the company World Vacances Plus S.L., or directly to the landlord, and this at least 21 days before the date of arrival, unless the user seeks and receives the site’s agreement to be allowed to pay this balance in cash on arrival and before receiving the keys.
Failing that, the site can consider that the user means to give his booking up.
If the user does not pay the balance, there will be no payback of the deposit to be counted on and the user will remain indebted with the total price of the booking. (See the cancellation conditions).
In the hypothesis of a hotel accommodation or of a booking which would be run less than 30 days before the date of arrival, the full payment of the total price for the service should be required to confirm the booking.

The site is not responsible for the service that is delivered by the landlord; the delivery being under the latter’s full responsibility.

You will then have the possibility to either accept this substitute offer, or ask for your order to be paid back to you.
Given the situation of absolute necessity or unforeseeable circumstances, such situation can never give cause to damages.
