Site usage:

Our B2B site is intended to assist you in determining the availability of and booking hotel rooms ( and few other land services we provide. WE DO NOT sell flights). Although Liberty GB & Ireland makes every effort to ensure that our published descriptions are correct, it does not own or operate the hotels or suppliers and cannot prevent or control modifications regarding hotels. Liberty GB & Ireland therefore reserves the right to change the description of a hotel at any time. The Liberty GB & Ireland B2B website may contain a plan of the layout of the accommodation. If so, this is based on specifications provided to us by the accommodation providers. The plan will only be a general representation of the accommodation. Actual unit size, design, fixtures, furnishings and facilities may vary from those shown on the plan.

Hotel dispute:

In the unlikely event that the hotelier cannot provide the booked accommodation, the client understands that the hotelier’s responsibility is to find an alternative hotel of at least a similar standard, and provide transportation as appropriate to this alternative hotel. Liberty GB & Ireland shall have no liability in respect of any other costs, losses or damages existing out of, or in connection with relocation of accommodation since such relocation is outside Liberty GB & Ireland control.

Your accommodation:

All successful Email confirmations will be issued a reference number, which is shown on the hotel voucher provided by our B2B Online booking. This hotel voucher shows details of the booking made with the hotel. It is important that you check that the hotel details and itinerary are correct to eliminate all possibility of misunderstanding. You should present the voucher at check-in upon arrival at the hotel (The voucher has all information needed by the hotel to recall the booking included the third party details “Reservation made and Paid by … Our providers). Likewise, if you do not receive a confirmation via email after making the booking, then please contact us. Should you experience any problems booking online, then please contact our Customer Service team via the details that can be found on the Contact us page on our website, we will be happy to assist with any enquiries.

Alterations at the Hotel:

Should you decide to alter your arrangements at the hotel, the hotel will do its best to accommodate such arrangements, but will not be held responsible should they fail to do so.

Building work ( Hotels ):

From time to time, it may be that a renovation or refurbishment program and its associated noise are in progress at a hotel. If a hotel is undergoing renovations while you are in residence at the hotel, you are not entitled to a refund. Liberty GB & Ireland will make reasonable efforts to inform you of any renovation work, if Liberty GB & Ireland is specifically advised of said renovation work with sufficient advanced notice. Liberty GB & Ireland shall not be financially liable for complaints relating to renovation that extend beyond the date originally advised by Liberty GB & Ireland.

Room types:

The total number of people (including infants and children) using the booked accommodation must not exceed the maximum occupancy as shown on the website, otherwise you may be refused access to the accommodation or charged an additional amount.

Hotels star ratings:

All star ratings are provided by our hotel providers and reflect their opinion of the overall quality, comfort, facilities and service offered. They do not automatically mean that a specific facility is or is not present. Our star rating can sometimes be higher or lower than official ratings, since the latter may not reflect the real standard of the hotel for bureaucratic or historic reasons.
