Security Deposits for Damage, Extras and Cleaning – Pre-Authorisation of CardsAPARTMENTS
Abbey Court reserves the right to charge a Security Deposit upon check-in. A charge of €200 per apartment is applicable. Please be advised that only credit/debit card pre authorization payments can be made in respect of the apartment security deposit, which will be the responsibility of the lead guest. Individual per person payments are not permitted and the lead guest will be responsible for the conduct of the occupants. Where damage or disruption occurs Abbey Court reserves the right to withhold some or all of the security deposit of the lead guest (see below).
Groups of 6 or more persons using the hostel must pay a fully refundable deposit of not less than €30 per person prior to check in. The payment will be used to cover incidental items including, but not limited to, breakages, damage to property, additional cleaning costs due to the accommodation being left in an unacceptable state, excessive electricity usage, and breaches to regulations such as smoking (other than the designated areas) or causing disturbance of other guests enjoyment of the property. Security Deposits may also be used by Management in the event of unauthorised extra guests using the apartment and facilities. Security Deposits held on a credit card (via a pre-authorisation) or charged to a debit card will be refunded as per the issuing bank’s policy. Typically this may take between 3-10 working days; however some banks do take longer. Customers should note that with pre-authorisation no money is transferred at the time, but it will affect your available funds balance and spending limits on the card while the pre-authorisation exists. Abbey Court is not liable for any delays in refunding pre-authorisations by credit card companies. If disturbance to other guests has occurred or any damage to the property, the cost to Abbey Court will be retained from the Security Deposit, and only the balance returned to the Customer. If this cost exceeds the value of the Security Deposit, the Customer agrees to indemnify Abbey Court for the damage, additional cleaning costs or other charges and agrees to pay all costs of recovery including all legal costs, and other expenses. The Customer hereby gives consent to Abbey Court to apply to the Customer’s credit card all reasonable charges incurred which may not be covered by the Security Deposit.
