Baransel Villas Booking Terms & Conditions
The ‘Terms and Conditions’ outlined below form part of the contract between the person(s) making the booking, acting on behalf of everyone named upon the booking form (hereinafter called ‘the guest’) and Baransel Grup Ltd, acting on behalf of the owner or local letting agent (hereinafter called ‘the company’).
The Holiday Contract between the guest and the company begins when the company is in receipt of payment and the guest is in receipt of a holiday confirmation. All arrangements, between the guest and the company, are made subject to the following terms and conditions (whether making a booking via email, website, and telephone or in person) and both the guest and the company agree to be bound by these terms.
Booking & Payment
The guest must be at least 18 years of age at the time of making the booking. Email confirmation will be sent to the guest once the company is in receipt of the booking deposit, and a further confirmation will be sent when one hundred percent (100%) of the fee has been received.
Once the Holiday Contract has been made it is the company’s responsibility to provide the guest with what they have booked, and it is the guest’s responsibility to ensure all payments for the booking are paid in full before arrival. All bookings are subject to these terms and conditions.
At the time of making the booking it is the guest’s responsibility to provide a valid email address. The company will not be held responsible for any information not received due to the guest’s failure to provide a valid email address. Upon arrival of the guest’s email it is up to the guest to ensure all details written upon it are correct.
The guest agrees to pay a thirty-five percent (35%) non-refundable deposit at the time of making a booking with the remaining percentage to be paid 10 weeks before arrival. The email, received by the guest, will show how much the guest has paid at the time of the booking and will also indicate the amount due to be paid. If the guest’s expected due date is less than 10 weeks away, at the time of making the booking, then the full balance is due upon making the reservation.
Payments can be made via our website using credit/debit cards or, alternatively via an international bank transfer to one of the company’s corresponding banks listed upon the reservation form.
The company reserves the right to cancel any booking, without warning, should the remaining balance not be received by the stated due date.
The price shown on the booking form is the price solely of the rental accommodation for those listed on the booking form, plus any transfer fees/car hire fees where applicable and where mentioned upon the form.
A €200 euro damage deposit is also expected to be paid by the guest in cash upon arrival, and will be returned upon check out after inspection of the villa. The guest agrees that they will leave the holiday accommodation in the same condition it was provided in, and fully understands that should any damage occur then the damage deposit will not be returned.
The Lead Guest is the person whose name holds the booking and they will be the person to whom the company should contact. All correspondence and invoices will also be addressed to the lead guest. The lead guest agrees that they accept the booking terms and conditions for each member of the booking party.
Upon receipt of the booking form, and once it has been checked, you must immediately notify the company of any errors/mistakes made by the company as soon as possible and no later than 7 days after the guest has received this. The company reserves the right to charge a €25 amendment fee for any errors made by the guest.

ATOL - ABTA - TURSAB
As we are a Turkish registered company and we only offer holiday accommodation and do not sell package holidays we are not required to hold an ATOL licence- even with an ATOL licence there is no protection offered for accommodation only bookings. Similarly ABTA does not apply to us as we are a Turkish registered company who do not sell other our companies’ products or services. In Turkey the official regulating body for the tourism industry is TURSAB (Türkiye Seyahat Agentaları Birliği) which translates as Association of Turkish Travel Agencies. We are a member of TURSAB which means we are under their regulation and are subject to auditing by them. We must meet their standards and comply with their rules and regulations. While this does not provide the same security as ATOL it can give you peace of mind that we are a diligent company who follow the correct channels within our jurisdiction. Our TURSAB licence number is 9117. It is highly unlikely that we will become insolvent as we are the leader in villa rentals in Turkey, serving both the national and international market, however if you are concerned you may make a payment with your credit card and benefit from the protection of the Consumer Credit Act.
We reserve the right to amend, add or withdraw any of our booking terms and conditions at any time and without notice.
