BOOKING WITH THIRD-PARTY SUPPLIERS THROUGH EDINBURGH EVENTS
Use of Instant Booking. Edinburgh events offer you the ability to search for, select, and book travel reservations with third-party suppliers without leaving the EdinburghEvents site experience. By booking travel reservations facilitated by Instant Booking, you will become an Edinburgh Events member if you are not one already. As an Edinburgh Events member, you will be able to post travel reviews, participate in discussion forums, email Edinburgh Events content to yourself and to others, access and receive members-only newsletters and travel planning content, and enter surveys, contests, or sweepstakes.
AS A USER OF THIS WEBSITE, INCLUDING INSTANT BOOKING, YOU UNDERSTAND AND AGREE THAT: (1) NEITHER EDINBURGH EVENTS NOR ITS AFFILIATES WILL HAVE ANY LIABILITY TO YOU OR OTHERS FOR ANY UNAUTHORIZED TRANSACTIONS MADE USING YOUR PASSWORD OR ACCOUNT; AND (2) THE UNAUTHORIZED USE OF YOUR PASSWORD OR ACCOUNT COULD CAUSE YOU TO INCUR LIABILITY TO BOTH EDINBURGH EVENTS AND OTHER USERS.
In the unlikely event that a reservation is available when you place an order but becomes unavailable prior to check-in, your sole remedy will be to contact the supplier to make alternative arrangements or to cancel your reservation.
Third-Party Suppliers. Edinburgh Events is not a travel agency and does not provide or own transportation services or accommodations. Although EdinburghEvents displays information about properties owned by third-party suppliers and facilitates reservations with certain suppliers on Instant Booking and affiliate sites, such actions do not in any way imply, suggest, or constitute EdinburghEvents sponsorship or approval of third-party suppliers, or any affiliation between EdinburghEvents and third-party suppliers. Although EdinburghEvents members may rate and review particular properties based on their own experiences, EdinburghEvents does not endorse or recommend the products or services of any third-party suppliers. You agree that EdinburghEvents is not responsible for the accuracy or completeness of information it obtains from third-party suppliers and displays on its sites or apps.
This Website may link you to supplier sites or other websites that EdinburghEvents does not operate or control. For further information, please refer to the “Links to Third-Party Sites” section below.
Booking Vacation Rentals with Third-Party Suppliers Listed on Affiliate Sites. Edinburgh Events and some of its affiliates act as marketplaces to allow travellers to enter into vacation rental agreements or rental transactions with property owners and managers (each, an “Advertiser”). As a user, you must be responsible for your use of this Website, our affiliate sites, and any transaction involving vacation rentals facilitated by Instant Booking and/or listed on affiliate sites. We do not own, manage, or contract for any vacation rental property listed on this Website or our affiliate sites.
Because neither Edinburgh Events nor its affiliates are parties to rental transactions between travelers and Advertisers, any dispute or conflict involving an actual or potential transaction between you and an Advertiser, including the quality, condition, safety or legality of a listed property, the accuracy of the listing content, the Advertiser’s ability to rent a vacation rental property, or your ability to pay for a vacation rental property, is solely the responsibility of each user. You understand and agree that you may be required to enter into a separate rental agreement with an Advertiser before making a reservation or purchasing a product or service, and such an agreement may place additional restrictions on your reservation, product or service.
Vacation Rental Payment Terms
International Travel. When you book international travel reservations with third-party suppliers or plan international trips using this Website, you are responsible for ensuring that you meet all foreign entry requirements and that your travel documents, including passports and visas, are in order.
For passport and visa requirements, please consult the relevant embassy or consulate for information. Because requirements may change at any time, be sure to check for up-to-date information before booking and departure. Edinburgh Events accepts no liability for travellers who are refused entry onto a flight or into any country because of the traveler’s failure to carry the travel documents required by any airline, authority, or country, including countries the traveller may just be passing through en route to his or her destination.
It is also your responsibility to consult your physician for current recommendations on inoculations before you travel internationally and to ensure that you meet all health entry requirements and follow all medical guidance related to your trip.
Although most travel, including travel to international destinations, is completed without incident, travel to certain destinations may involve greater risk than others. Edinburgh Events urges passengers to investigate and review travel prohibitions, warnings, announcements and advisories issued by the UK Government, the European Union (EU) and destination country governments prior to booking travel to international destinations.
