Terms and Conditions

PIP Publications Pty Limited A.C.N. 054 987 174 (referred to as “PIP”, “we”, “us”, “our”) is the owner and publisher of the content contained in this website (“Site”).

Your use of this Site is subject to these terms and conditions (“Terms”), our Privacy Policy and any other laws or regulations, which apply to this Site. If you do not accept these Terms, you must refrain from using the Site.

Prices, Products and Services
PIP operates the Site as a referral forum for luxury holidays.

The Site contains information for a number of holiday related suppliers and provides you with the opportunity to purchase goods or services provided by those suppliers.

We are not an agent for the suppliers nor are we an agent for any third party suppliers of any other goods or services that are advertised on the Site (“Supplier”). We have no involvement in the actual transaction between you and the Supplier unless you use our booking system. Any transaction you enter into in respect of goods and services advertised on the Site (whether or not you use our booking request system) is directly between you and the Supplier and entirely at your own risk.

Information contained on the Site about goods and services offered by a Supplier is provided by that Supplier. We do not monitor, verify or endorse information submitted by Suppliers for posting on the Site and you should be aware that such information may be inaccurate, incomplete, out-of-date and may change at any time. Facilities, activities or other services that form part of your booking may be subject to change.

We do not make any representation as to the safety, quality, condition or description of any goods or services provided by Suppliers that are advertised on the Site. You should make your own enquiries in relation to the accuracy of any such representation. Any issues regarding safety, quality, condition or description should be dealt with directly with the Supplier with whom you make the booking. Suppliers may impose their own terms and conditions in relation to their goods and services. As you obtain goods and services from Suppliers subject to those terms and conditions you should check that you agree to those terms and conditions before you confirm your booking.

All bookings are subject to Supplier availability.

We reserve the right to correct any errors or misprints and have no responsibility if any of the goods or services advertised on the Site are unavailable.

Bookings
To make a booking please see details on website for each resort. No purchase or booking may be made from this Site. PIP acts as a booking referrer for the Supplier. For some bookings, PIP may take a credit card number on behalf of the Supplier to guarantee a booking or reservation. In all cases, once the booking is confirmed, you are subject to the terms and conditions of that Supplier’s cancellation policy and terms and conditions.

We will notify you as soon as reasonably practicable of when a Supplier has accepted your offer to book or to confirm a booking.

PIP cannot be held liable for any errors, misdescription, omissions in a booking made through PIP, the Suppliers or as a result of some system failure of any kind.

Unless otherwise advised, any offers or promotions for hotels made by a Supplier is subject to the terms and conditions set by that relevant Supplier for the particular offer.
