The Gomfy is not a party included in the agreement between the guest and the service provider, and has no responsibility or liability to the user in respect of the terms of the contract.
(ii) Effectiveness of the booking
The mediation of the booking service becomes effective when the guest pays a percentage (defined by the service provider - usually between 10% and 30%) of the total price of the booked services as a nonrefundable deposit to Gomfy. At that moment the guest obtains the right that the booked service will be delivered by the service provider within the stated time period. The deposit is non-refundable even if the student / guest does not use the booked service, regardless of who is responsible for the circumstances which have led to the disuse of the service.
The prices on our site are highly competitive. The placement service of the Gomfy is free of charge for the guests. The guest agrees in the case of a successful placement to pay the balance of 70-90% of the accommodation price plus taxes and charges directly to the service provider, according to the terms and conditions of the service provider.
