Best Prices Policy
Why the best prices?
By booking through Rural Journey, you pay the same rates as you would by contacting the accommodation directly, with no additional fees. While many Internet networks add a commission fee of 30% or more to the accommodation rate, Rural Journey clients can rely on getting the best rates and no extra charges. All of the accommodations in the Rural Journey network are obligated under contract to offer the visitors of this website the same exact prices that they would offer if they contacted the accommodations directly. In addition, our staff will verify if promotions and/or special offers are available at the time of booking.
Why are rates "approximate"?
Rural Journey accommodations are often family-owned holiday farms, some of which have their own distinct tariff systems. Rural Journey has worked to incorporate these pricing systems into its system; however, it may not always be possible to give a thorough price list for such accommodations. Even so, you can get a good idea of what the final price will be from the notes written under the "Rates" section. Other Internet networks avoid complications that arise from such price system differences and offer clients rates much higher than the actual ones. On the contrary, we at Rural Journey believe that the savings you get from using our service outweigh the slight inconvenience created by the differences in accommodations' pricing systems.
Do I risk paying more that I thought?
No. As previously stated, the prices stated try to follow, with utmost loyalty, the rates of the accommodation in question. In the rare case that an accommodation cannot conform to the Rural Journey prices, we try to make sure the change results in a decrease in price.
Nevertheless, if that is not the case, we remind you that you are not in any way committed to a reservation by sending us a booking request form and that once a price quote has been made, you can decide to change accommodation or withdraw the reservation.
Why are there different booking policies for different accommodations?
Rural Journey requests a deposit of 18% on the price of the entire stay and that the remainder be paid at check-in. While this deposit policy is sufficient for most of the participating network accommodations, some request higher deposits and/or further advanced notice of a booking.
Many Internet sites prefer to avoid the hassles of various booking policies by increasing the rates, but we believe that, by offering the lowest prices on the Web, the savings will compensate for the slight inconveniences created by the differences in accommodations' booking policies.
