Shortstay-Apartment.com respects the privacy of all our customers and therefore all your personal data will be attended to with the highest confidentiality. In order to offer you the fastest and easiest service, we do request your personal data upon booking with us. Your personal data will only be shared with your chosen apartment manager. Shortstay-Apartment.com will never share your personal data to other parties than your chosen apartment manager, except if the Dutch government obliges us to do so. In order to make a booking, we have to forward your personal data to your chosen apartment manager. The apartment manager uses your personal data to identify you upon arrival at their office or to contact you in case of changes in your reservation. Shortstay-Apartment.com would like to emphasize that our Privacy Statement is in accordance with the European Law for Personal data protection. In order to guarantee bookings of our customers at the apartment provider, we require the following personal data:
- Contact telephone number
- Email Address
- Credit card details
Credit card details
Credit card details are required to pay the prepayment which is needed to guarantee your booking. Shortstay-Apartment.com charges your credit card via stripe.com. Stripe is certified to PCI Service Provider Level 1, the most stringent level of certification. No credit card data is stored on our servers. Should any problems occur regarding your credit card, Shortstay-Apartment.com will inform you. At all times, only valid credit cards are accepted for online booking and it is your responsibility to enter the correct details. In the event that your credit card does not provide a sufficient guarantee, Shortstay-Apartment.com has the right to cancel your reservation at the apartment provider and to notify you of the cancellation by e-mail. Shortstay-Apartment.com has no involvement in or influence on financial issues. All financial issues are between the apartment manager and you directly. The website of Shortstay-Apartment.com is secured with the SSL technology (Secure Socket Layer). By using this technology your personal data and credit card details will be encrypted before all information will be sent to stripe.com and our secure booking server. To protect our customers, our servers and network are protected with Firewalls. Therefore we can guarantee our customers that providing us with your personal details is 100% safe and secure.
After you have processed your booking on our website, you will receive a notification from Stripe that you card has been charged. At the same time we will send you a confirmation email to confirm your booking with us. When you book an apartment through one of our websites, it is your responsibility to inform Shortstay-Apartment.com should you not receive a confirmation e-mail. This usually occurs as a result of a strong junk mail filter or an incorrectly entered e-mail address. For any problems regarding confirmation e-mails please contact our reservations department through contact details stated above. If for any reason you are unable to access the email address you gave us in the booking registration form, please email us using an alternative email address as soon as possible. To develop our booking service, we may send you after sales emails. In case you do not wish to participate with this service, please inform us at office@Shortstay-Apartment.com. Shortstay-Apartment.com is free to send news & specified offers based on your preferences, to the e-mail address provided in your reservation or your subscription to the newsletter. You can unsubscribe at any given moment, by simply clicking on a link in the e-mail. Should you have any questions or remarks about our privacy statement, please contact us.
Our prices are very competitive. If you believe that you have found a lower rate for the same apartment as actually booked through Shortstay-Apartment.com for the same dates, please notify us within 24 hours from the time of booking and we shall investigate it. The accommodation at the lower price must be an online price from an online travel retailer. A special offer price, discounts due to frequent flyer mileage credits, a promotional price or a price, which is part of a package, are excluded.
Shortstay-Apartment.com sells apartments from an inventory supplied by each apartment manager, and does not over-sell that inventory. Shortstay-Apartment.com does not accept any liability for unavailability of apartments caused by the apartment manager overselling its own apartment inventory.
- All rates stated are per apartment and not per person.
- All apartment rates are inclusive of VAT and excluding Tourist Tax (if applicable).
- All apartment managers require that there is at least one person aged 18 or over staying at the apartments for each booking.
Your reservation is made directly with the apartment manager you have chosen. By confirming your reservation with Shortstay-Apartment.com you are entering into a contract with the apartment manager. When you make a reservation through Shortstay-Apartment.com, the rates that you see on the website at the time you make the booking are the rates that we apply and confirm to you. Please read carefully the apartment rate details that are provided before you make your online booking. If there are any unforeseen changes or problems with your reservation, we will automatically contact you first for your approval/instructions, before arranging a reservation for you.

Alteration & Cancellation
If you wish to alter your booking (e.g. change the dates of your stay or the accommodation requested), we will use all our reasonable efforts to comply with your request, however we cannot guarantee that we will be able to do so and we accept no liability for any loss, damage or additional expense that may be incurred in that circumstance. Shortstay-Apartment.com has the right to cancel your booking within 72 hours after booking time. In case of cancellation by Shortstay-Apartment.com, Shortstay-Apartment.com will attempt to offer you a similar apartment in the same quality and price classification, but shall not be held liable should it fail to do so. Should an apartment manager have to alter or cancel a booking, provided that we are informed of it, we will do our utmost to inform you where is reasonably possible; at times it may not always be possible to contact you before your departure. In the event of the apartment manager cancelling your booking, we have no liability to you with regards to making a refund or offering any compensation.
