On receipt of a written instruction from you to cancel the reservation, Tourism Maps CC will refund whatever amount is due within 3 (three) working days of having received the refund from the establishment in question.

Refund payments are subject to a 17.5 % (VAT inclusive) (seventeen, five percent) handling fee on the refunded amount unless a refund is necessitated as a result of the fault of the establishment or of Tourism Maps CC. Determination as to who is at fault is solely in Tourism Maps CC’s reasonably exercised discretion.

It is important to us that your accommodation experience meets your expectations.
Please ensure that you take up any issues that you experience directly with the establishment during your stay, in order to give them an opportunity to rectify the situation.
We’ll treat it seriously but cannot be held responsible for any loss you or any third party may suffer as a result of any accommodation failing to meet the advertised standards.
Every effort is made to ensure accuracy - establishments legally commit to supplying correct information and previous customers" criticisms may be publicly published on Tourism Maps CC. The truth does tend to prevail!
