Deposit Policy & House Rules

WHAT IS A BOOKING Reservation?

1.1 A “Booking Confirmation” is an agreement between you and the Host for occupation of a Property for a specified time (the “Rental Period”). You can make a Booking through www.vngproperty.com (the “Website”), by phoning us on +90 212 282 8231 or on websites where VNG Property advertises Properties. No Booking will exist until we send you an email confirmation (the “Booking Email”), as well as a corresponding email to the host, at which point it will be legally binding on you and the Host.


WHAT IS A RENTAL FEE?

2.1 The “Rental Fee” is the amount paid by you for the occupation of the Property for the Rental Period. 

2.2 For each Booking, we will charge you from your credit/debit card as soon as the Booking is made, unless we notify you otherwise prior to you making a Booking.

2.3 You confirm that the credit/debit card being used is yours.

2.4 We are not responsible for any fee your card issuer or bank may charge you as a result of our processing of your payment in accordance with this Rental Agreement.

2.5 The Rental Fee includes charges in respect of the following utilities: gas, electricity, water, tv licence, and insurance for any item supplied by the Host.

2.6 The Rental Fee will be payable in full, even if for some reason you do not occupy the Property for the entire Rental Period.

2.7 If you make a Booking and do not show up without notice we have a right to keep the payment.


WHAT HAPPENS IF I WANT TO CANCEL MY BOOKING RESERVATION?

3.1 You may request a cancellation by emailing us at vng@vngproperty.com or by phoning us on +90 (212) 282 8231.

3.2 For Bookings made more than 7 days prior to guests arrival, we offer a 48-hour period from the time of which the booking was made to cancel and receive a full refund.

After the 48 hour period, we refund 50% of the booking value up to 14 days before the guests arrive. If you cancel within 14 days of arrival, unfortunately the booking will not be refundable. Bookings made within 7 days of arrival are non-refundable. This is due to Hosts unlikely to receive another Booking for their property for the dates booked before cancelation.

3.3 In the unlikely event that a Host must cancel your Booking, or the Property is unavailable due to an emergency, we will communicate this to you as soon as possible and use reasonable efforts to help you find an alternative Property if available (which may include similarly priced accommodation of comparable quality.) If we are unable to find you alternative accommodation, or you do not want to book an alternative accommodation we will not take any further payments from you in respect of the Booking and will refund you the full amount.

WHAT IS OUR CHECKOUT POLICY?

4.1 The property check-out time is before 11:00am unless discussed and agreed upon for a late check out. You will also be liable for an additional charge of the nightly rate for each day or part day that you overstay.

4.2 If you stay in the Property for over 3 hours after the check-out time without authority then we reserve the right to enter the Property, remove your luggage, and change the locks to the Property. We also reserve the right to take any other action that may be necessary and to charge you for the costs of that action.

HOW DOES THE SECURITY DEPOSIT POLICY WORK?

5. You pre-authorize the payment to us of your deposit amount of $500USD upon requesting your booking from your credit/debit card account at the beginning of the Rental Period. You agree that we may use the Security Deposit in our sole discretion to compensate the Host for any damage to the Property, its fixtures or fittings, or for any loss or damage caused to the Host due to your breach of this Rental Agreement. We will aim to return your Security Deposit, or any remaining amount of it, within 7 working days of the end of your stay.

WHAT IDENTIFICATION DO I NEED TO BRING TO THE PROPERTY?

6.1 To protect the Host’s interest and VNG Property, you agree to provide evidence of a valid ID/Passport identity at check-in. Each guests’ ID will be communicated to Turkish Authorities for security purposes.

6.2 No access to the Property will be granted until the Host’s or VNG Property’s representative has seen satisfactory identification.

6.3 Failure to provide legal identification at check-in will constitute as an immediate cancellation of the Booking. Under such circumstances, no refund will be paid.
