Campsited is the trading name of Ecommodation Lab Limited, a company incorporated under the laws of Ireland (company registered number 532145) with its registered office at The Digital Hub, 10 - 13 Thomas Street, Dublin 8, Ireland , and we provide a booking service, allowing you to book accommodation at campsites and/or ancillary travel services (the "Services") with accommodation providers (“Accommodation Provider”), through the website www.campsited.com (the “Site”). These are the terms and conditions (the "Terms") that govern the use of the Site and the Services. All references to "We", "Us" or "Our" in these Terms refer to the operator of the Site, Ecommodation Lab Limited.
1.2 By using the Site and/or the Services (even as a casual browser) you confirm your acceptance of the Terms. You confirm that you are of sufficient age to lawfully use the Site, enter into a contract and to create binding legal obligations for any liability you may incur as a result of your use of the Site.
1.3 Please note that the Terms may vary from time to time without notice to you and that your continued use of the Site and/or the Services following such change constitutes your acceptance of the new Terms. You should check these Terms for any changes each time you access the Site and we recommended that you print off a copy of these Terms as and when your booking/s are made.
1.4 If you do not accept these Terms, do not use this Site and do not make a booking via the Site.
1.5 We do not provide, own or operate any accommodation or travel services ourselves and by booking on the Site, you agree to enter into a contract with the Accommodation Provider and not our Site, which is acting only as agent for the Accommodation Provider. We are not responsible for the fulfilment of any booking made through our Site. In the event of a problem arising with your accommodation or other travel services, you should contact the Accommodation Provider.
2. Use of Campsited
2.1 To use some of the Services or features on the Site, you will need to provide various personal details. In return for using the Site and benefiting from the Services, you agree to provide true, accurate, current and complete information about yourself where required.
2.2 When you use the Services or send e-mails to us, you are communicating with us electronically. We will communicate with you by e-mail or by posting notices on the Site. For contractual purposes, you consent to receive communications from us electronically and you agree that all agreements, notices, disclosures and other communications that we provide to you electronically satisfy any legal requirement that such communications be in writing, unless mandatory applicable laws specifically require a different form of communication.
3. Bookings and payment
3.1 On making a booking through the Site, you will be required to submit your credit card or debit card information to pay a deposit (“the Deposit”). The Deposit is calculated as a percentage of the total value of the transaction with the Accommodation Provider. The Deposit amount is determined by each Accommodation Provider. The Deposit will be deducted from the total cost of your stay. If your booking is made closer to your check in date the Accommodation Provider may require payment of the total amount for the booking. All credit card payments for all bookings (with the exception of bookings made with UK and Ireland Accommodation Providers) go directly to the Accommodation Provider using a secure payment service called Payline.
3.2 For bookings made with UK and Ireland Accommodation Provider you will also be required to pay a transaction fee for each booking with us, which is calculated as 2.4% of the total value of the Deposit plus €0.24 (“the Transaction Fee”). The Transaction Fee is charged by our third-party payment provider ‘Stripe’ to process payment. Please note that the Transaction Fee may vary at the discretion of ‘Stripe’.
3.3 When a booking is confirmed you receive a confirmation email.
3.4 While we require that Accommodation Providers display the full price of the booking, we cannot absolutely guarantee that the price displayed on the Site is the total price, inclusive of all taxes and levies, and the price of the booking is ultimately the responsibility of the Accommodation Provider. You acknowledge that we shall not have liability to you in respect of any attempt by an Accommodation Provider to levy additional value added taxes or other taxes on you at the point of payment as a supplement to the price displayed and your sole recourse in this regard will be against the Accommodation Provider.
3.5 The reference numbers included on the booking confirmation should be quoted in all enquiries or a cancellation of the booking when you need to contact us or the Accommodation Provider.
3.6 You agree to the Accommodation Provider having the ability to contact you to confirm the booking and, if requested by the Accommodation Provider in accordance with their reservation policy, pay the remaining balance of your booking in advance of your arrival at their accommodation. Alternatively, you will be responsible to the Accommodation Provider on your arrival at their accommodation for payment of the balance of the cost of the booking, together with any additional services agreed with the Accommodation Provider.
3.7 We strongly recommend that you check and confirm with the Accommodation Provider the exact terms and conditions upon which the Accommodation Provider makes the accommodation and any service available to you.
3.8 All bookings placed through our Site will be subject to the Accommodation Provider’s acceptance of the booking. While we would expect it to be a rare occurrence, please note that an Accommodation Provider reserves the right to refuse admission to guests and/or cancel a booking at any time without any liability if they believe the guests may engage in anti-social behaviour or adversely affect the smooth running of their accommodation, its security or reputation at their absolute discretion. We shall not be liable or responsible in anyway in respect of any damage or loss of whatsoever nature suffered by you arising from or in any way connected with the Accommodation Provider’s refusal to allow access to their accommodation or their cancellation of booking in such circumstances, save that you may be entitled to a refund of the Deposit in accordance with clause 4.2.

4.3 If you cancel your booking, outside of the permitted timeframe specified by the Accommodation Provider the Accommodation Provider, may at their discretion provide you with a refund for some or all of the monies paid to them and we recommend that you review their cancellation policy in such circumstances.
4.4 If you fail to arrive by the agreed check-in time this may result in the cancellation of your entire booking and in such circumstances we and the Accommodation Provider will be entitled to retain the Deposit and any monies paid by you respectively.
4.5 If you fail to provide true, accurate, current and complete information about yourself, in accordance with Clause 2.1, we and/or the Accommodation Provider shall be entitled to cancel your booking and retain the Deposit and/or any other monies paid by you without any recourse to us or the Accommodation Provider respectively.
