Your contract
Moroccan Musthaves acts as a booking agent for the hotels, restaurants and activities it books on your behalf. When you make a booking, you are entering into a contract with the hotel via Moroccan Musthaves, not with Moroccan Musthaves itself. As an agent we accept no responsibility for the acts or omissions of the parties or for the services provided by the parties. The parties terms & conditions will apply to your booking and we advise you to read these carefully as they do contain important information about your booking.

Payment 
Must-eat & Must-do’s:
Payments are made on the spot.

Must-stays:
For your security, payments online are made through secure servers. For all hotel-bookings, Moroccan Musthaves will take a credit card number that is forwarded securely to the hotel to guarantee your booking.   Any advance deposits, additional fees or charges will always be clearly marked before you make your booking. Once paid, these deposit payments, additional charges and fees are non-refundable in the event of cancellation.

Your booking is confirmed and a contract between you and the parties will exist when we send you confirmation on their behalf. Please check your confirmation carefully and report any incorrect or incomplete information to us immediately. Please ensure that names are exactly as stated in the relevant passport. As we act only as booking agent, we have no responsibility for any errors in any documentation except where an error is made by us.

Where an offer of availability is made by the parties, your booking is not confirmed until you receive a booking confirmation. We therefore advise you to accept the offer as soon as possible after receipt in order to make a firm booking. You will be notified by email within 24 hours whether your booking has been confirmed. It is your responsibility to contact Moroccan Musthaves if a confirmation email has not been received.

All currency conversions are based on data from .. and are only valid on the date of booking as a guideline. Payments are taken by parties in the parties’ local currency and may be subject to exchange-rate fluctuations (depending on the date charged) and charges from your bank or credit card issuer for which we have no liability. If you wish to avoid this by fully prepaying your booking to us in your preferred currency please ask at the time of booking.

Please note: any applicable VAT/taxes may be subject to change at any time.

Amendment & Cancellation Policy
If you wish to amend or cancel a confirmed booking, you must contact us. Amendments and cancellations can only be accepted in accordance with the terms and conditions of the parties. In all cases, once the booking is confirmed, you are subject to the terms and conditions of the policies cancellation policies.

Hotel cancellation policies may outline a period before check-in when cancellations will be subject to payment of a cancellation charge. This period does not include the day of arrival – so, for example, a cancellation policy of ‘24 hours’ means a reservation must be cancelled at least 24 hours before the hotel’s stated check-in time on the day before arrival to avoid the penalty. Any cancellations must be made by emailing Moroccan Musthaves as soon as possible (bookings@moroccanmusthaves.com).

Where applicable, refunds will be made by the same method used to pay for the booking. Any payment made by credit card will be returned to that card and any payment made by voucher/loyalty money will be refunded as a voucher or by reinstating the loyalty money as appropriate. Please note that all deposit payment and additional charges paid at the time of booking are non-refundable.

Any changes to a booking that involve the addition of sequential nights to a stay will be considered an amendment to the original booking, regardless of whether the extra nights are booked by the person who made the original booking, or by another guest with whom they are staying.

Changes and Cancellations by the parties
We will inform you as soon as reasonably possible if the parties need to make a significant change to your confirmed booking or to cancel. We will also liaise between you and the parties in relation to any alternative arrangements offered by the parties but we will have no further liability to you.

Accuracy of prices & descriptions
Moroccan Musthaves cannot be held liable for errors or omissions in bookings or pricing, either made by the parties, or as a result of system failure of any kind.

We do not exclude or limit any liability for death or personal injury that arises as a result of our negligence or that of any of our employees whilst acting in the course of their employment.

Complaints 
Because the contract for your arrangements is between you and the parties, any queries or concerns should be addressed to them. If you have a problem, this must be reported to the parties immediately. If you fail to follow this procedure there will be less opportunity for the parties to investigate and rectify your complaint. The amount of compensation you may be entitled to may therefore be reduced or extinguished as a result.

Conditions of Suppliers

Changes by You & Transfer of Booking
If you wish to change any part of your booking arrangements after our confirmation invoice has been issued, you must inform us in writing as soon as possible.

You should be aware that these costs could increase the closer to the departure date that changes are made and you should contact us as soon as possible. Where we are unable to assist you and you do not wish to proceed with the original booking we will treat this as a cancellation by you. A cancellation fee may be payable.
