Payment Methods

Payment is collected when a quotation has been received from the establishment and once the guest has accepted the written quotation.  Once payment has been made against a quotation, the offer and its acceptance becomes a binding contract.  Following acceptance, the establishment is required to send confirmation of the booking.

Payment may be made by direct deposits, internet transfers or Swift Account transfers.  Guests will be provided with the relevant UpAndGo banking details and reference number/name for use on the deposit slip.

Booking Process

The visitor to the website makes an enquiry regarding availability of the establishment/s.  Once availability has been confirmed from the establishment, a quotation is sent to the user.  This quotation may be accepted or declined.  If the user accepts the quotation, the user is e-mailed documentation which includes the Terms & Conditions of UpAndGo and a reservation invoice. The establishment is not obliged to reserve accommodation without either a deposit or full payment.  Acceptance and confirmation of the reservation is only finalised once a payment has been made received.  Should a signed copy of the Terms & Conditions not be received but a deposit payment has been recieved, the Terms & Conditions shall be taken as read and accepted. The offer has a specified expiry date for both deposit and final payments.  Payment of the invoice constitutes a binding contract between the owner and the guest.

Payment consist of either a minimum stipulated deposit and a balance of payment or the full amount in certain circumstances (e.g. less than one month prior to arrival).

Establishments apply cancellation policies and these are clearly defined on the quotations. Cancellation policies may include refunds.

Value added tax at 14% is charged by VAT registered establishments in South Africa.

Refunds and Returns

Reservations will be processed once funds have been received and cleared in the UpAndGo bank account.

Reservations made through this website are subject to any cancellation policy that may be enforced by the establishment.  Where a booking is made through UpAndGo, guests should ensure that they are familiar with the establishment’s cancellation policy

UpAndGo acts as an agent for the owners/operators of the establishments who reserve the right to cancel a reservation without notice.  The owner/operator will be responsible for any refund required by the guest once the funds have been paid to the owner/operator by UpAndGo.

In the event of a refund, UpAndGo’s responsibility to the guest is limited to the repayment of any commissions it has received in respect of the booking (less the stipulated administration fee of 7% on the total commission) and the establishment is responsible to the guest for the refunding of any payments it has received in respect of the cancelled reservation. 

UpAndGo retains a non-refundable booking commission of 12.5% of the total booking value for marketing and managing the reservation.  The commission is deducted from the deposit amount before the deposit is paid to the establishment. The guest will not be liable to pay any amount in addition to the amount specified in the quotation with the exception of additional items or services purchased from the establishment.  UpAndGo is entitled to retain a 7% administration fee on the total commission amount in the event of a booking cancellation. In the event of a Swift Account transfer refund, an additional R100.00 will be charged.  In addition, in the event that an establishment retains a deposit payment in terms of its cancellation policy, then under no circumstances shall UpAndGo be held liable for repayment thereof. 

The booking commission is essential in funding the development, maintenance, hosting and office running costs to enable this website to provide the user with this booking service. 

Any attempts by establishment owners/operators or guests to ‘by-pass’ the paying of commission is prohibited.

UpAndGo is not responsible for incorrect rates detailed on the website and will not be obliged to honour bookings at the incorrect rate.

In the event of a dispute, between the guest and the owner/operator, UpAndGo will endeavour to resolve the dispute but will not be liable to either party for any claims, damages or refunds.
