We also ask that you notify us immediately if you suspect that someone is using your user name and/or password or otherwise obtaining access to the Services in this or any other inappropriate manner.
ESTABLISHING PAYMENT ACCOUNT
As a Renter, you are responsible for opening an account, providing payment authorizations for bookings and paying for Services according to these Terms, as well as others which may be included at the time of booking. You agree to provide all requested information, including a credit card to be used for pre-authorization/reserve and payment/capture for Services. Payment for a booking will be made by Gotothewater directly to the Member who posted the listing.
Renters are responsible for leaving the rented boat in the same condition it was in before you rented it. Renters acknowledge and agree that you are responsible for all acts and omissions of you and your guests on the boat that effect the condition of the boat. In the event a Member claims and provides evidence of damage to the boat, you agree that Gotothewater shall be entitled to charge a deposit to your credit card to cover the cost of the damage, as established after reasonable investigation. We will notify you of any damage claim made by a Member related to your rental and you will have an opportunity to respond, as set forth in such notice.
How does gotothewater handle security deposits?
Security deposits can be required either by gotothewater or by boat owner. gotothewater security deposit requests are based on boat features and/or the timing of a boat reservation, and are never requested based on anyone’s race, national origin, ethnicity, sex, gender identity, or age.
gotothewater- required security deposits
48 hours before your rental begins, an authorisation hold for the security deposit amount will be placed on your payment method. You won’t be charged, but the hold means that you won’t be able to access these funds until the hold is released. For example, if you’re paying with a credit card with a total credit limit of $6,000 and there’s a security deposit of $500, your credit card limit would then be $5,500 until the hold is released.
As long as no boat damage occurs during your rental, we’ll initiate a release of the $500 hold placed on your card 14 days after your checkout.
Your bank may take 3–12 business days to process the release of funds. If it turns out that we can’t authorize the hold for the security deposit amount, you’ll be notified by email and will have 12 hours to try another payment method. If that doesn’t work out, we’ll cancel your reservation and you’ll be refunded.
Try to make sure your payment method has enough money available to cover the security deposit. (If you’re not able to do that, gototheester is not responsible for any associated fees, including overdraft fees.)
We will only charge a deposit to Renter’s credit card after the rental is complete if the Member has made a claim and the deposit amount has been deemed appropriate after investigation of the claim.
Boat owner-required security deposits
Some boat owners require a security deposit for their listing. The amount, between $100 and $5,000, is set by the boat owner, not by gotothewater. If you’re a guest and you’re booking a listing with a boat owner-required security deposit, you’ll be shown this amount before you make your reservation.
Boat owner-required security deposits are different with gotothewater required security deposits in that no authorization hold will be placed. Renters will only be charged if a boat owner requests to collect on their security deposit. Depending on what has been damaged, the amount the boat owner requests may or may not be the same as the security deposit.
If and when a boat owner makes a request to collect on their security deposit before requiring a security deposit, boat owner should understand that not all boat damage caused by guests is supposed to be under security deposit. Exclusions may include general cleaning, ordinary wear and tear, and non-physical damages like smoking fines and broken boat Rules.
We charge a service fee of 12.5% of the total rental (i.e., the booking and any additional expenses) for facilitating the rental and this amount will be reflected in the final amount charged to Renter’s credit card. We reserve the right to round up amounts to the nearest whole dollar (for example, $202.60 will be rounded to $203). We will process any necessary currency conversion (Gotothewater charges in US dollars unless otherwise specified) based upon Renter’s currency on the day the credit card is charged and we will charge a conversion fee of 3% of the total rental for currency conversions. We reserve the right to adjust the conversion rate based upon when the payout is made to the Member. The service fee and any conversion fee constitute “Transaction Fees.” Gotothewater reserves the right to adjust its Transaction Fees at any time. Any Fee changes will be effective the next time you book a rental after such fee change goes into effect (i.e., rentals already booked will be subject to Fees as established at the time of booking).
PAYMENTS TO MEMBERS
Payment to Members for accepted bookings will be made as soon as Renter checks in. Notwithstanding, in limited circumstances, on a case-by-case basis, in its sole discretion, Gotothewater may elect to pay a Member a portion of the accepted booking after the reservation is made and the remaining portion of the accepted booking will be paid as soon as the renter checks in.
If a Member does not respond to a booking inquiry, Gotothewater reserves the right to transfer the booking and associated payment to another Member on Renter’s behalf. Gotothewater reserves the right to hold payment to Members if Gotothewater suspects there has been fraud or other suspicious activity in connection with the rental or payment. Unacceptable payment methods that may be posted on the Website may result in the immediate removal of the non-conforming listing from the Website without notice to the Member and without refund. Unacceptable payment methods are those methods that may pose a risk of fraud, identify theft, or breach of privacy.
SUBSTITUTION OF RENTAL UNITS
Renter understands and acknowledges that boats/other water craft reserved may, from time to time, be subsequently damaged or otherwise become in need of repair before the reservation is commenced. If a Member is unable to provide the reserved unit to Renter due to it being unavailable, Member may provide Renter with a substitute unit that is similar in age, size, model, and value as the reserved boat/other water craft. Member shall provide Renter with notice of the need for a substitution of unit(s) as soon as reasonably possible, as well as provide Renter with pictures and a description of the substitute unit upon request. If Member is unable to provide Renter with a similar substitute unit (as described herein), Renter may elect to cancel the reservation any time before it is commenced and, as its sole remedy, obtain a refund in accordance with the Refund Policy as if the Member had cancelled the reservation. Renter shall not be entitled to any refund, and shall be obligated to pay all sums owed, if Member offers Renter a similar unit (as described herein) and Renter nevertheless refuses to complete and/or terminates the reservation. If there is a dispute between Renter and Member as to whether the substitute unit offered by Member is sufficiently similar to the unit reserved by Renter, Gotothewater shall make the final determination, in its sole discretion, and Renter and Member agree to abide by Gotothewater’s determination.
ANY DIRECT OR INDIRECT EXCHANGE OF MONEY BETWEEN RENTERS AND MEMBERS OTHER THAN PAYMENT THROUGH GOTOTHEWATER WEBSITE IS A VIOLATION OF THESE TERMS.
The rental/booking fee and any additional expenses may be subject to applicable local, federal and state taxes. The Member accepting the booking is solely responsible for the collection, reporting, and payment of applicable taxes. Gotothewater may charge applicable taxes to Renter’s credit card solely at the direction of the Member. Members are solely responsible for determining applicable taxes and should consult with your own legal/tax adviser about any tax questions in this regard. For Members based in the European Union, it is your responsibility to include VAT in the price of the booking and you will be responsible for reporting VAT.
CANCELLATION AND REFUND POLICY
If Member cancels an accepted rental before the rental is commenced, Renter shall be refunded all sums paid to Gotothewater for the rental, other than the Transaction Fee.
If Renter cancels an accepted rental before the rental is commenced, Gotothewater shall return to Renter a “Cancellation Refund,” as specified below. The Transaction Fee will not be refunded to Renter under any circumstances. The amount of the Cancellation Refund is determined by the Member’s cancellation policy set-forth in the Renter’s separate rental agreement with the Member, which shall be one of the following three policies, as chosen by the Member:
100% of the rental price if cancelled more than 24 hours prior to commencement of the rental; and
50% of the rental price if cancelled within 24 hours of commencement of the rental.
100% of the rental price if cancelled more than 7 days prior to commencement of the rental;
75% of the rental price if cancelled less than 7 days but more than 48 hours prior to commencement of the rental; and
50% of the rental price if cancelled less than 48 hours but more 24 hours prior to commencement of the rental.
75% of the rental price if cancelled more than 7 days prior to commencement of the rental;
50% of the rental price if cancelled less than 7 days but more than 48 hours prior to commencement of the rental; and
25% of the rental price if cancelled less than 48 hours but more 24 hours prior to commencement of the rental.
If, for any reason, the Renter’s separate rental agreement with the Member
(a) Does not contain a cancellation policy or
(b) The cancellation policy therein differs from the foregoing cancellation policy options, then the amount of the Cancellation Refund will be determined in accordance with the “Strict” cancellation policy set-forth above. Renters are further subject to any additional cancellation terms set forth in the terms of each listing. To the extent the cancellation terms of a particular listing conflicts with the cancellation terms set forth herein, the cancellation terms set forth herein control.
Transaction Fees will never be refunded. Gotothewater will charge a fee for any reservation that is cancelled after both parties have agreed on a booking. The following is a breakdown of cancellation fees based on the total price of rental: Under $100 fee is $5 over $100 but below $250 fee is $20 over $250 fee is $50
The Member will be debited the cancellation fees on the next rental that is successfully completed through Gotothewater. Renters are subject to the cancellation terms set forth in the terms of each listing. Additionally, if a Member cancels a rental for any reason other than weather or another circumstance effecting the safety of the Renter, such Member (rather than the Renter) will be charged the Transaction Fee for the rental, as set forth above.
Member understands and acknowledges that Gotothewater acts merely as a conduit for reservations and payments between Renters and Members, and Member assumes all rental payment risk. IF A RENTER OBTAINS A CREDIT CARD CHARGEBACK AGAINST GOTOTHEWATER, FOR ANY REASON, AND GOTOTHEWATER HAS ALREADY PAID ALL OR A PORTION OF SUCH AMOUNT TO MEMBER, THEN MEMBER SHALL IMMEDIATELY (WITHIN FIVE (5) DAYS UPON RECEIVING WRITTEN DEMAND FOR SAME) RETURN TO GOTOTHEWATER ALL SUCH AMOUNTS.
