Article 5. Financial conditions and payment procedures

5.1 Local taxes and Payments

Unless specified otherwise in the Rules and Restrictions, the prices of the Services shown on the Website are expressed in EUR, excluding local taxes imposed by the authorities in some countries.

The price of Services booked on the Website must be paid either to (i) Ireloca which will accept such payments on behalf of the Suppliers, and/or (ii) directly to the Suppliers.

The Customer shall provide the details of his/her payment card and the Supplier or Ireloca, Ltd. will often have to verify: (i) the validity of the payment card (through a charge of a nominal value that is either refunded within a few days or deducted from the final payment due to the Supplier) and, (ii) the availability of funds on the payment card (to be confirmed by the bank issuing the Customer's credit card).

The Suppliers are liable for their own VAT on Destination Services and Ireloca Ltd. only pays its Tax on the commission. The caption “Incl.
