Brief description of the Service
The Service aims to help tourists plan their vacation more easily with their friends through reservation ideas. The service is also presented in the form of a search engine where tourists can discover the properties near them or near tourist and geographical attractions. The Service presents the property details, contact info, availability of the rooms and offers, as they were registered directly by the Administrator on the platform. Therefore, the Service is not responsible for the clarity, novelty and / or conformity of the information presented about properties, their administrators being directly responsible.
The Service is addressed to all the owners, administrators and managers of accommodation properties with an average capacity, optimally 3-20 rooms. With the help of the tools provided, the page can be personalized with information on the description and facilities of the location, contact details, proximity tourist attractions, the specificity of the rooms, rates per rooms according to season, different type of offers like early booking and group booking, reservation policy and conditions.
The Service allows you to publish content ("Content"), meaning public content on the Internet, links, record information, shared content through other platforms (WhatsApp, LinkedIn, Facebook and other social media) or email and make available certain information, text, graphics, to help you providing users the public information about the Property, room details, availability of rooms and current offers.

Methods of carrying out the correspondence
The Service does not provide any guarantee for the receipt by email of the notifications or reports sent, payment estimates or other notifications of reservations.
Once registered on the platform all users benefit from the Tourist account and can create reservation ideas to any of the properties published in the platform or can join other ideas to which they have access.
Reservation ideas can be accessed from the
Reservation ideas - tourist perspective
Reservation ideas are not bookings themselves. To become a real reservation, a reservation idea must be confirmed by the Administrator. In addition, even if a reservation idea has been confirmed, the responsibility and guarantee of the reservation is assumed by the parties, the GROUPnTRAVEL platform declining any responsibility in this regard. If a reservation idea has not been confirmed, then the rooms appear free during the selected period, so that other users can create reservation ideas during the same period.
The reservation idea remains anonymous until the originator of the idea sends the reservation request to the Property Administrators, but it can be seen on the property calendar. At that time, when the reservation request is sent, the contact details of the initiator will be printed on the reservation idea page, visible to the Property. Also, at the bottom of the reservation page, the parties (the Initiator and the Administrator) are provided with visible comments to all who have the rights to view the reservation.
Reservation ideas have a unique link so that they can only be found by users who have the URL. Reservation ideas have visibility settings, so their access can be restricted depending on the Initiator's option.
Only the Initiator and the users registered in the platform, with the right of access to the reservation, can occupy or release the places available in the reservation.
Only the Initiator of a reservation may change the status of a reservation, request a reservation or cancel the reservation.
Reservation ideas can be canceled at any time by either party, Initiator or by the Administrator.
GROUPnTRAVEL recommends that you pay the reservations directly to the owner, upon arrival at the location. GROUPnTRAVEL is not a tour operator and does not financially book property reservations.
All our services are offered free of charge. GROUPnTRAVEL disclaims any responsibility for the use of the data or information included in the website or in the documents or emails generated through the Service. These data are distributed for information purposes only. Therefore, users are required to take all necessary precautions before using this data, which they use at their own risk.
The estimated bill is calculated based on the rates introduced directly by the Administrators in the GROUPnTRAVEL platform, but does not represent an official offer from these properties. The estimate and all the details of the reservation can be changed at any time, and the document cannot be interpreted as an invoice or as a fiscal document.
The data included are disseminated for informational purposes only. Therefore, all the details of the reservation, both the calendar and the payment details must be confirmed directly with the Administrators. GROUPnTRAVEL disclaims any responsibility for the use of the data or information contained herein. Therefore, participants are required to take all necessary precautionary measures before using this data, which they use at their own risk.
All information entered in the platform must be real and in accordance with the profile and purpose of the platform, non-compliance with this requirement entailing suspension of the account from the platform.
Your access to the backoffice area of the registered pages is possible only by virtue of the administrator status of the page.
Seasonal settings, rooms and offers
In order to register rates, it is necessary to register at least one season. All rates are customizable per season.
The selection of facilities or other reservation policies is made easily by choosing from the preset elements.
On the room settings page, you can add rates, photos and other facilities for each room. If you want a room not to be public for a period of time, you can select the status in the hidden room.
The rate of a room is set per season. If the season has been canceled, the rates will no longer be valid.
If a room is deleted it will result in the cancellation of all ongoing bookings using that room.
The platform allows the creation and distribution of offers, customization for various forms of discount, by period, group or by number of rooms. Once created, offers can no longer be edited, they can only be deleted. If an offer is deleted, it will result in the cancellation of all ongoing reservations using that offer.
The offers can be customized according to the type selected, the period, the selected rooms and the reduction granted.
The discount will appear on the payment estimate for all bookings that include the offer.
The properties can have several tourist attractions attached so that they can be more easily identified in the platform and located. Choose the most attractive ideas that are closely related to your property. You can attach up to 20 tourist or geographical attractions.
Publishing the page
Once created and customized, the resulting page can be published and thus made public to all search engines and all online visitors. The page will remain in their archive even after the subsequent change of status from public to private.
Published properties become available to the creation of the reservation ideas.
The service will change the status of the page in private, if any of the conditions of the publication are invalid (i.e. if the rooms are not defined and visible, the rates or if the required sections are not complete).
Adding or deleting additional administrators
An administrator can add multiple administrators by adding its email address, email used to log in the platform. The right to close the property account rests only with the administrators who have full rights on the platform.
Adding a manual booking
Administrators can add confirmed or unconfirmed reservations. The confirmed reservations change the color on the reservation calendar and do not allow the overlapping of other room reservations during the selected period. Unconfirmed bookings allow the addition of other non-confirmed bookings or tourist reservation ideas.
Confirmation or decline of tourist reservation ideas
Reservation ideas are anonymous until the Initiator submits the reservation request to the Property. Ideas can be confirmed or declined. If the idea is declined, it will be temporarily blocked.
Only the Administrator can unlock it later.
Reservation ideas can be canceled at any time by either party, by the Initiator or by the Administrator.
Reservation calendars have many forms in the GROUPnTRAVEL platform.
They can be displayed on the published pages of the property, on the home page or on the pages of rooms and offers - depending on the privacy and transparency settings of the calendar. They have general availability, but do not show in-detail information about reservations.

It is available only to the Administrator, and its main function is to search and view all the reservations and the availability of the rooms from a certain day.
Departures and arrivals - complete booking calendar
It is only available to the Administrator and is the main calendar that presents on a single page the situation of all the rooms and reservations for a limited period of time.
