Failing this, a 100% refund will be provided to the client. If only a portion of the rental time is rebooked then a pro rata refund will be made. Any rental payment that qualifies for a refund either whole or pro rata will be subject to an administration fee equivalent to 15% of the total booking.

Although it happens very seldom, Bali Vacation Rental cannot be held responsible for such failures as these are deemed to be outside our control. Occasionally a power surge will shut off the circuit breaker. This does not mean that there has been a power failure, only that a breaker in the house has been triggered.

Bali Vacation Rental will not provide a refund if electricity is lost temporarily due to a breaker being triggered and or power failure.
