4.    Restrictions 
If after eleven (11) months of advertising on our site, you have failed to receive more than 20 booking enquiries for your property through our site, you may request a refund, knowing that:

  • You will be excluded from advertising the property again on the site
  • You will not be eligible for a “Money Back Guarantee” offer on any other HomeAway, Inc. site
  • This offer is limited to one refund per advertiser (regardless of the number of accounts used by the advertiser).

5.    Verification of Requests for Refund

All requests for refund are subject to verification by HomeAway UK. HomeAway UK will not verify any request that it believes, in its sole discretion, is made fraudulently or in bad faith. Verified requests will receive a credit to the credit card used for the purchase of the listing within approximately fifteen (15) days of verification.

6.    Changes to Money Back Guarantee
HomeAway UK reserves the right in its sole discretion to modify or discontinue the Money Back Guarantee or to restrict its availability to any person, at any time, for any or no reason, and without prior notice or liability to you. The terms that are in effect at the time of your listing will determine your eligibility under the Money Back Guarantee. The failure by HomeAway UK to enforce any provision of these Terms & Conditions shall not constitute a waiver of that provision

7. Valid dates
