Welcome to GLAD!
Please read the following Terms of Use ("terms") closely before using our website. By accessing, browsing and using this website, you acknowledge that you have read, understood and agree to comply with the terms stated here. If you do not agree with any part of these terms, YOU MUST NOT USE THIS SITE. GLAD may at any time modify these terms, and your continued use of this website will be conditioned upon the terms in force at the time of your use.

For the absolute avoidance of all doubt, it is agreed that no reservation contract shall exist between GLAD and you, the customer.

It is your responsibility as the customer to fully acquaint yourself with the conditions of that lodging supplier prior to booking, and that they are acceptable to you.

Booking Conditions
Lodging suppliers have several options in which to participate:
a) Partner Level A: provides real-time availability and booking for you, the customer.
b) Partner Level B: provides delayed booking, whereas you make a booking request and the lodging supplier has 48 hours to approve or decline your request.
c) Partner Level C: no online booking but information is provided whereas you may contact the supplier directly.

The partnership level is clearly indicated on search results and the detailed information pages for each lodging supplier. Separate terms and conditions will apply to your reservation depending on which lodging provider you select. You agree to abide by the terms or conditions of purchase imposed by any supplier with whom you elect to deal, including, but not limited to, payment of all amounts when due and compliance with the supplier's rules and restrictions regarding availability and use of products or services. You understand that any violation of any such supplier's conditions of purchase may result in cancellation of your reservation(s) or purchase, in your being denied access to lodging, or in your forfeiting any monies paid for such reservation(s) or purchase. You shall be completely responsible for all charges, fees, duties, taxes, and assessments arising out of your use of this website, and, without limitation, you shall be responsible for all charges, fees, duties, taxes, and assessments arising out of transactions performed by others on your behalf, whether or not such uses were performed with your consent.

Booking Conditions: Making a Reservation
On making a reservation, you shall pay a non-refundable deposit (being a fixed percentage of 10% of the total value of your reservation) together with a flat reservation fee ($2.00 per reservation). For Partner Level A, this is charged immediately and a reservation confirmation is displayed. For Partner Level B, you are charged only if and when the lodging supplier accepts your booking request.

After making a reservation, you will be responsible to the lodging supplier for payment of the balance of the cost of lodging booked by you together with the payment of charges for any additional services subsequently contracted for with the lodging supplier. Some lodging providers require some or all of this payment before you arrive.

You must use a credit card or debit card to guarantee a reservation. In the event that sufficient funds are not available through your credit card to complete a proposed reservation, then such reservation shall be null and void. The same provision applies in the event that your credit card has passed its expiry date or at, GLAD's discretion, the transaction is deemed questionable. By making a reservation with your credit card or debit card, you agree that in the event that you do not arrive by your agreed check-in time, you authorize the lodging supplier to charge to your credit card or debit card without further reference to you an amount not exceeding one night's charge. Your non-arrival by the agreed check in time will result in the cancellation of your entire reservation. Any amendments to your reservation must be notified to and agreed with the lodging supplier directly.

In making a reservation, it shall be your responsibility to disclose to the lodging supplier any physical or mental condition to which you or a member of your party is subject to and of which the lodging supplier should be notified and which may require special facilities.

Booking Conditions: Reservation Confirmation

GLAD will issue the reservation confirmation on behalf of the lodging supplier for each reservation, but does not undertake to include all charges for additional services or complete details of the room charge. GLAD strongly recommends you check and confirm with the lodging supplier the precise terms and conditions upon which the lodging supplier makes the reserved service available to you upon receipt of the booking confirmation. The reservation numbers included on the booking confirmation should be quoted in all inquiries, cancellation or modification of the reservation.

Booking Conditions: Cancellations

GLAD does not accept responsibility for cancellations by you or by the lodging supplier regardless of the circumstances in which the cancellation is made. GLAD shall not accept any liability for losses, additional expenses or any claim whatsoever due to changes in lodging or other travel services, sickness, weather, strikes or any other cause. All such losses, additional expenses or claims will be borne by you unless otherwise agreed between you and the lodging supplier.

No Liability

While GLAD makes all reasonable efforts to ensure that the travel services listed are of reasonable standard the listing of any travel services in the website is not and should not be taken as a recommendation from GLAD or a representation that the travel services will be suitable for the user's purpose.

In particular, GLAD and its affiliates do not guarantee the accuracy of, and disclaim liability for inaccuracies relating to, the lodging photographs, lodging property descriptions, and lists of lodging property amenities displayed on this website, much of which information is provided by the lodging supplier. GLAD, its affiliates, and/or their respective suppliers may make improvements and/or changes on this website at any time.
