Terms and Conditions
BaitYourHook provides an online platform through which fishing trip providers (fishing operators) can advertise their fishing trips for reservation, and through which visitors of the website can make such reservations ("our services").
By making a reservation through BaitYourHook, you enter into a direct (legally binding) contractual relationship with the fishing operator at which you book. From the point at which you make your reservation, we act solely as an intermediary between you and the fishing operator, transmitting the details of your reservation to the relevant fishing operator and sending you a confirmation email on behalf of the fishing operator.
The information on our website is provided on an "as is" and "as available" basis and is based on the information provided to us by fishing operators. As such, the fishing operators are given access to an extranet through which they are fully responsible for updating information which is displayed on our website (including prices and availability). Although we will use reasonable skill and care in performing our services we will not verify if, and cannot guarantee that, all information is accurate, complete or correct. Each fishing operator remains responsible at all times for the accuracy, completeness and correctness of the information displayed on our website.
Our services are made available for personal and non-commercial use only. Therefore, you are not allowed to resell, use, copy or transmit any content or information, services available on our website for any commercial purpose.
Prices and Best Price Guarantee
Our services are free of charge for users and we will not charge you for our services or add any additional (reservation or booking) fees to the final price offered by fishing operators. Users are not required to pay BaitYourHook any joining or initial subscription fee(s) related to use of our services.
All prices on the BaitYourHook website are displayed including VAT tax and all other taxes, unless stated differently on our website or in the confirmation email.
Sometimes special offers with cheaper rates are available on our website for a specific fishing trip, however, these offers may carry special restrictions and conditions, for example in respect to cancellation and refund. Please check the fishing trip details thoroughly for any such conditions prior to making your reservation. All special offers are marked as such.
We want you to pay the lowest price possible for your reservation. Should you find your fishing trip, with the same reservation conditions, at a lower price on the Internet after you have made a reservation through us, we will match the difference between our rate and the lower rate under the terms and conditions of the Best Price Guarantee.
If available, certain fishing operators offer the opportunity for reservations to be paid (partly or wholly and as required under the payment policy of the fishing operator) to the fishing operator during the reservation process by means of secure online payment (all to the extent offered and supported by your bank). Payment is safely processed from your credit/debit card or bank account to the bank account of the fishing operator through a third party payment processor.
For certain fishing trips or special offers, please note that your credit card may be pre-authorized or charged (sometimes without any option for refund) upon reservation and confirmation of the booking. Please check the fishing trip booking details thoroughly for any such conditions prior to making your reservation.
BaitYourHook uses Stripe as a third party payment processor. You expressly agree to the terms and conditions of the Stripe Services Agreement, and any updates or modifications to either of those documents made from time to time by Stripe.
By making a reservation with a fishing operator, you accept and agree to the relevant cancellation and no-show policy of that fishing operator. The general cancellation and no-show policy of each fishing operator is made available on our website on the fishing operator information pages, during the reservation procedure and in the confirmation email.
Please note that certain fishing trips or special offers are not eligible for cancellation or change. Please check the fishing trip details thoroughly for any such conditions prior to making your reservation.
Please note that a reservation which requires deposit (prepayment) or down payment (partly or wholly) may be cancelled (without a prior notice of default or warning) insofar the relevant (remaining) amount(s) cannot be collected in full on the relevant payment date in accordance with the relevant payment policy of the fishing operator and the reservation. Late payment, wrong bank, debit or credit card details, invalid credit/debit cards or insufficient funds are for your own risk and account and you shall not be entitled to any refund of any (non-refundable) prepaid amount unless the fishing operator agrees or allows otherwise under its (pre)payment and cancellation policy.
If you wish to review, adjust or cancel your reservation, please revert to the confirmation email and follow the instructions therein. Please note that you may be charged for your cancellation in accordance with the fishing operator's cancellation, (pre)payment and no-show policy or not be entitled to any repayment of any (pre)paid amount. We recommend that you read the cancellation, (pre)payment and no-show policy of the fishing operator carefully prior to making your reservation and remember to make further payments on time as may be required for the relevant reservation.
