5.5 The Binding Offer cannot be modified for a maximum period of twenty-four (24) hours of its receipt by the Supplier, within which the Supplier may either accept or decline the booking request. In case of acceptance, the Purchase Confirmation is sent to the User, summarising all the information as per Article 5.3.

5.11 The User acknowledges that the LTB or the Consortium reserves the right to regulate, independently and under their exclusive responsibility, the order in which the structures available for booking are presented.

6.5 LTB or Consortium and/or TM do not and cannot carry out, and do not guarantee any check respecting the Information and the materials published by the Suppliers, and thus they do not, in any manner whatsoever, offer any guarantee or undertake any responsibility for any damage or loss suffered by the User in connection to or deriving from the circumstances listed under Article 6.4, letters a), b), and c).
7 Credit Card (Hospitality Product)
7.1 The Supplier's Channel does not include any on-line payment method for the bookings made by Users. The bookings shall be paid for off-line, and any down payments, or any penalty fee charges in the cases provided for in these Conditions of Sale, shall also be discharged off-line, including where credit card details are requested online.
7.2 The Supplier may ask the User to provide their credit card data for several purposes, including to secure their bookings; to pre-pay or pay any deposit and/or any charges due in case of application of the penalty fee, as indicated during the booking phase; in case the User should fail to provide full payment, without justification, at the end of their stay.

8 Guarantees - Confirmation Deposit (Hospitality Product)
8.1 The Supplier is entitled to request from the User, as guarantee for the booking of their structure, the payment of a sum of money by way of confirmation deposit under Article 1385 of the Italian Civil Code, and by way of down payment over the full sum due.
8.2 Such deposit payment represents a percentage of the full sum due for the service booked, calculated based on the rate communicated by the Supplier to the User, who provides the payment thereof via bank transfer to the coordinates provided by the Supplier, or via credit card.
8.3 The deposit - once paid - is held (also) by way of down payment over the price of the stay.
8.4 If, once the confirmation deposit is provided, the User should default, the Supplier may withdraw from the agreement and keep the paid deposit; if the Supplier should default, the User may withdraw from the agreement and demand the reimbursement of the sums paid under this Article.
8.5 In case of bank transfer the booking is done “subject to collection” of the deposit, which is to be deemed a condition for termination under Article 1353 of the Civil Code.
8.6 The Supplier is thus bound to keep the booking valid for five calendar days as of the date in which the booking is sent. Within the same period of time (5 days), the User must complete the payment and send the Supplier, either via fax or via e-mail, a copy of the bank transfer slip showing the Transaction Reference Number or other equivalent code.
8.7 If the above period of time has lapsed without the Supplier having received evidence that the requested payment was made, if the Supplier wishes to be released from any obligation towards the person who ordered the booking, they must immediately contact the User in writing (via e-mail) to receive confirmation that the payment was not made, and shall consider the above termination condition to have taken place, releasing the User from any obligation. The Supplier shall also be released from any obligations towards the User in case the Supplier’s attempts to contact the User fail, if the User fails to reply to the above e-mail within twelve (12) hours from when it was sent.
8.8 In case of a booking requiring the payment of a deposit through bank transfer and/or credit card, the User and the Supplier undertake to comply with the conditions laid out in this Article.
9 Guarantees - “Last Minute” Booking (Hospitality Product)
9.1 In case the booking is made “last minute”, meaning that the stay is scheduled to start within four (4) days, counting from the day after the day in which booking is made, the Supplier may, upon receiving such booking, contact the User in writing no later than twenty-four (24) hours from the booking, to request further forms of guarantee in addition to those accepted by the User in the booking process.
9.2 The Supplier may thus request the User to provide:
a) the User’s credit card details, in order to immediately start the payment process for a sum of money, by way of confirmation deposit under Article 1385 of the Italian Civil Code. The Supplier may exercise this faculty exclusively when the “last minute” booking is done through a bank transfer, and the bank transfer is yet to be made by the User, or in case of communication of credit card details as booking “guarantee”; or
b) within the period of time decided by the Supplier, via e-mail or via fax, a copy of the bank transfer slip showing the Transaction Reference Number or equivalent code. This shall apply exclusively when the bank transfer has already been made by the User.
9.3 It is understood that the Supplier must exercise such faculty in writing - via e-mail or via fax - and by no later than twenty-four (24) hours of the booking, with the consequence that, in case the Supplier should make such request verbally or make such request in writing but after expiry of said 24-hour period, the booking validly entered in the system shall produce binding effects upon the Parties.
9.4 In all the cases provided under letters a) and b) of Article 9.2 above, the User must comply with the Supplier’s request no later than as requested. Where the User should fail to comply with the above, the Supplier shall be entitled to terminate the agreement under Article 1456 of the Civil Code.
9.5 Therefore, the User shall be deemed exonerated from any and whatsoever obligation towards the User, without any possibility for the latter to claim any sums by way of indemnification or compensation or on any other grounds. The above shall apply, by way of example and not limitation, in the event the User should fail to provide their credit card details; in case the credit card payment of the deposit does not go through; where the User should fail to send the bank transfer slip within the due time, or in case the User was unreachable, with evidence of the Supplier’s attempts to reach the User, in the twenty-four (24) hours following the booking.
9.6 Conversely, where the User should comply with the Supplier’s request, and pays the deposit or promptly sends a copy of the bank transfer slip, the Supplier shall be under obligation to send the User an e-mail (or fax) containing a summary of the terms and conditions personally and directly agreed to between the Supplier and the User.
9.7 The confirmation deposit paid by the User shall also be held by way of down payment over the price of the stay.

10.3 In order to cancel a booking, the User must serve a written communication (in the manners indicated in the purchase Confirmation) upon the Supplier, the LTB, or Consortium (LTB or Consortium contact for cancellation purposes email@example.com). A booking cancellation communicated by the User to the LTB or Consortium shall have the equivalent effects of a booking cancellation communicated directly to the Supplier.
10.4 Where a booking is cancelled within the agreed times, the User shall be entitled to be reimbursed for the confirmation deposit paid upon booking, net of any costs, duly accounted for, borne by the Supplier.
10.5 The confirmation deposit shall be reimbursed via bank transfer within 30 days of the cancellation if the confirmation deposit has already been credited to the Supplier, or, if the sum hasn’t been credited, within 30 days of the date in which the confirmation
deposit is received by the Supplier.
10.6 If the booking cancellation is received after the agreed time, or is not received at all, or if the User fails to appear at the structure (so-called No Show), the Supplier may apply the following fees:
• in case of confirmation deposit, as provided under Article 8 above, the Supplier may keep the full sum paid via bank transfer or via credit card;
• in case the User has provided their credit card details as a form of guarantee for the booking, the Supplier may withdraw from such card the sum agreed by way of penalty fee. In this case the Supplier must expressly inform the User, via e-mail or fax, of its intention to charge the User for the sum agreed by way of penalty fee.
10.7 A No Show shall occur when the User has failed to arrive at the booked facilities by
18.00 of the scheduled day of arrival, unless agreed otherwise.

11 Replacement Accommodation: unforeseeable circumstances or force majeure - Overbooking (Hospitality Product)

11.2 Upon the occurrence of unforeseeable circumstances or force majeure, the agreement with the User is terminated, and the Supplier is exclusively under obligation to return the sums received from the User to confirm their booking.
11.3 However, with the consent of the User, the Supplier may make available to the User an alternative accommodation, as a replacement of the accommodation booked and no longer available, as long as the such alternative accommodation has equivalent or superior characteristics to the accommodation booked.
11.4 Conversely, in case the service being booked is unavailable on account of Overbooking or for any other reason ascribable to the Supplier (such as imperative management reasons), the Supplier shall be under obligation to provide the client an alternative accommodation in a category that is equivalent or superior to the one booked, within the same facilities or, if necessary, within different facilities located in the same location or in a neighbouring location, belonging to a category that is at least equivalent to that of the Supplier, and offering similar or superior services.
11.5 Any additional costs for such replacement accommodation shall be borne entirely by the Supplier.
11.6 However, in the case provided under 12.4, where the User should decline such alternative accommodation, the latter shall be entitled to the reimbursement of double the sum paid by way of confirmation deposit, unless no such deposit was paid, in which case the Supplier is under obligation to pay the User, by way of penalty fee, a sum equivalent to 20% of the total cost of the services originally booked.
11.7 Likewise, in the case provided under 12.4, where the Supplier should be unable or unwilling to find an alternative accommodation with the characteristics detailed
above, and if the User has paid a confirmation deposit, the Supplier is under obligation to return double the confirmation deposit received. Vice-versa, where no confirmation deposit was paid, the Supplier shall be under obligation to pay the User, by way of penalty fee, a sum equivalent to 50% of the total cost of the services originally booked.
11.8 Without prejudice to the User’s right to receive the above sums due by the Supplier, the LTB or Consortium - where it may be possible and in case of inaction of the Supplier - may look for an alternative accommodation for the User, as a replacement of the accommodation booked and no longer available, with equivalent or superior characteristics to the accommodation originally booked (so-called “rerouting”). It is understood that:
- the User must pay the new structure found by the LTB or Consortium the sums requested by said structure on account of such alternative accommodation, in line with the applicable prices;
- the LTB or the Consortium offers no guarantees whatsoever with respect to the sums due to the User by the Supplier being replaced;
