If no damage is caused to the villa, the owner is obliged to return the deposited sum to the guest at the takeover of keys at the guest’s departure.
The guest is obliged to behave responsibly towards the rented villa with an appropriate observance. The guest is obliged to return the villa in the condition in which he/she received it. For any caused damage the guest is liable directly to the owner and the owner is entitled to use a deposit to cover the sum of the actual damage in accordance with the Clause 12 of these Conditions. If the deposit sum does not cover the damage the guest is obliged to pay the difference up to the total damage amount directly to the owner.

It can be considered that the damage is also a need for an additional cleaning due to the especially bad condition in which the guest returned the villa to the owner, and the owner is entitled to use a deposit to cover that damage. WIIBUK has no liability for the possibly caused damages to the owner or to the guest if he/she does not want to return the deposit. All possible disputes the owner and the guest shall settle between himself/herself without WIIBUK.
If guest has a problem whilst at your booked villa such as insufficient cleaning, damage or other irregularities, they should bring it to the attention of villa owner so that there is an opportunity to put it right at the time.

15. LOWEST PRICE GUARANTEE
WIIBUK guarantees to its guests that on the official pages of the agency www.wiibuk.com the accommodation prices for individual offered villas are the lowest, i.e. that the same villa cannot be found in advertisements at the lower prices than ours. In case that the guest gets on some other web pages, offers, agency catalogues etc. a more favorable offer for the same villa in the same period, under the same conditions and in the same currency before the reservation than the price which offers WIIBUK and delivers an evidence about it to the address of WIIBUK, the agency guarantees a rental contract conclusion for the same villa in the same period and under the dame conditions with an additional 5% (five percent) discount on the lower offered evidenced price. The lowest price guarantee is not valid if the price difference is a consequence of the tax or stamp duty increase or significant changes in the exchange rate. It is also not applicable if the lower prices on other web pages are not up-to-date, and it is not possible to make a reservation at such prices, and in case of special last-minute offers. The lowest-price guarantee is applicable only at the moment of reservation and it cannot be applied later or after the already carried out and paid reservation.
16. SPECIAL REQUESTS
If the guest has special requests that are not included in the accommodation price (such as cooks, waiters, special food etc.), they shall be fulfilled, if there is a possibility, by the owner or a third party. Additional services must be announced in advance by email in order to be fulfilled, if there is a possibility, in the top quality. WIIBUK neither provides additional services nor charges them, but only gives a support in their arrangement, and WIIBUK cannot be considered liable for the quality of services provided by third parties.
17. ACT OF GOD
In case that the concluded Rental contract cannot be fulfilled or its fulfillment becomes significantly difficult due to an act of God (e.g. war, natural disaster, environmental disaster, epidemics, closing of borders, strike and similar act of God) which could not be foreseen at the time of the rental contract conclusion, WIIBUK and the owner may terminate the Rental Contract as neither WIIBUK, nor the owner can be deemed liable in the above mentioned cases.
