Booking via Inn Style and when your booking will be effective
Inn Style is an online booking engine / service. Our customers are independently owned and operated accommodation owners and any booking that you, the guest, make via Inn Style will be directly with the accommodation owner or operator (“Accommodation/s”) and not with us.
Our technology facilitates the booking between you and the Accommodation.
Inn Style, in good faith, presents availability and pricing based entirely on the inventory that the Accommodation indicates to us is available / saleable. Should any errors in that inventory exist your only recourse is strictly between the accommodation with whom you are booking.
You will use Inn Style to perform a search of the Accommodation’s pricing and availability based on dates and your other requirements. You will be granted an opportunity to refine your search and, where appropriate, add any extras proceeding to a Reservation Summary Page.
On the Reservation Summary Page – Inn Style will clearly present the details of your booking summarising the dates, pricing and, where appropriate, any optional extras that you have selected. You will be granted 20 minutes to complete your reservation.
You will first be presented with a button entitled “Confirm and Continue”.
By clicking the Finalise Reservation button you will be taken to the Booking Completion Screen where the details of your booking will once again be summarised. At this point Inn Style will clearly indicate the Total Cost and will also indicate the amount of any partial payment which may be due and payable immediately when you click the “Complete Reservation” Button. The extent of the partial payment will depend on a number of factors defined by the Accommodation.
You will be asked to complete certain contact details.
You will be presented with the opportunity to read and consent to both these Inn Style Terms and the Terms and Conditions of the Accommodation. By ticking the confirmation box you have confirmed acceptance of both sets of Terms and Conditions.
If a partial payment is due and payable upon Completing the Reservation you will be required to supply your card details or, in some cases, your PayPal account details as an option. Payment of that amount will be collected by the Accommodation’s merchant on behalf the Accommodation. By entering your card details at the time of booking you authorise the merchant to debit that amount from your card or PayPal account. We confirm that the merchant will pay the non-refundable charge amount over to the Accommodation after deduction of any charges that the merchant has agreed with the Accommodation.
By clicking the “Complete Reservation” button you are offering to bind yourself to the Total Cost of the reservation as detailed on the summary page and you also consent to having your card or PayPal account debited for the partial payment where appropriate, due upon completion of the booking.
In certain cases, the Accommodation will not ask for a partial payment but will ask for card details to secure your reservation without debiting the card at the time of the completion of your online booking. These card details will be held securely by our third party payment processors (see below) and the Accommodation reserves the right to debit that card for the total cost of your reservation subject to their terms and conditions.
In limited cases, some Accommodations will not request card or PayPal details. This does not in any way indicate that you have not accepted the total cost. You are still offering to be contractually bound to the full cost of the online reservation.
Please check the details of your booking and the facilities and features of each accommodation carefully before clicking “Complete Reservation” as All bookings completed using Inn Style, whether or not secured by card or PayPal, are non-refundable unless the Accommodation Owner’s terms and conditions state to the contrary. For the avoidance of doubt, any partial payment made at the time of booking is also non-refundable unless the Accommodation Owner’s terms and conditions state to the contrary.
After clicking the “Complete Reservation”
By clicking the “Complete Reservation” button you offer to enter into a binding agreement for the booking shown on that screen. Your booking will be effective and binding on you and the accommodation when we have provided a confirmation of that booking (Booking Confirmation) on behalf of the Accommodation.
If a partial payment is required, we will only provide your Booking Confirmation for display on your screen once your NON-REFUNDABLE partial payment has been authorised by the Accommodation’s authorised payment processor. We will also send you an email confirming the details of your booking to the address supplied to us at the time of booking.
In certain limited cases, some Accommodations may not be able to confirm acceptance immediately. This will be made clear on screen and in the email response.
Payment and Refund Policy and our role as agent
The full price for your booking will be reflected on the confirmation screen prior to you clicking the “Complete Reservation” button.

Payment Processors, PCI compliance and security.
Inn Style does not at any time hold the proceeds of any accommodation reservations. Inn Style is not a payment processor nor a merchant and never holds any card details on Inn Style Servers.
Inn Style processes your online payments on behalf of Accommodations using three third party payment processors. Stripe.com or CardStream.com and/or Paypal.com. All three processors are industry leaders and are fully PCI compliant. These processors will have arrangements with one or more merchants which will have a contractual arrangement with the Accommodation.
When Inn Style asks you to supply card details to pay for any reservation you are supplying these to the Accommodation’s card merchant using secure fully PCI compliant technology implemented by the payment processor.
Inn Style only warrants that it has duly integrated the Payment Processor’s technology into Inn Style’s booking engine. Inn Style also warrants that no card details are stored on Inn Style servers nor given to Accommodations directly. Accommodations can only request Inn Style to initiate a debit against encrypted card details and Inn Style will request the Payment Processor to debit the.card on behalf of the Accommodation.
