How LodgingDeals.com Works
The Site, Application and Services can be used to facilitate the listing and booking of vacation rental and timeshare properties ("Accommodations"). We do not own or manage nor can we contract for any vacation rental property listed on the Site. The Site acts as a venue to allow a timeshare owner or vacation (points based) owner (collectively "Member") to offer for rent, a specific vacation rental property to a potential vacationer or vacation seeker. We urge all users to be responsible about their use of this Site and any transaction entered into as a result of either listing a property or renting a property.
We do NOT facilitate the actual transaction between Vacationers and Members. As a result, the truth or accuracy of the listings, the ability of Members to rent vacation property or the ability of Vacationers to pay for vacation rental properties are solely the responsibility of each user. Lodging Deals provides all Accommodation pictures and property description directly from the Property website. As such, the quality, safety, or legality of the properties advertised including their website information, are as accurate as the companies that own and/or maintain the resort represent. Lodging Deals is not responsible for any misrepresentations on any third party website or for any misrepresentations made by users of this Site.
Hotel information, provided for comparative purposes, is available for booking utilizing our website features. We are not responsible for any content or availablity information offered through these third party vendors.
Payments & Fees
Payments between Members and Vacationers: We are not a party to any payment transaction between Members and Vacationers. No Member may request any Vacationer to mail cash, or utilize any instant-cash wire transfer service such as Western Union or MoneyGram in payment for all or part of a property rental transaction. Any violation of this term or any other unacceptable payment methods that may be posted on the Site may result in the immediate removal of the non-conforming listing from the Site without notice to the Member and without refund.
Each transaction requires the Vacationer to pay the Member as agreed. The Member is required to provide a valid Confirmation Reservation from the Resort and any instructions and requirements based on the rules and regulations of their timeshare or vacation ownership organization upon receipt of payment.
Any fraud should be reported to Lodging Deals. Ideally, we hope to be able to assist users in avoiding such transactions or clarifying problems, but we assume no liability or responsibility to do so, or to inform users of any such actual or suspected activity.
Service Fee: In consideration for providing Member services, Lodging Deals may collect listing fees from the Member. Fees will be posted on the website. Listing Fees are non-refundable.
