Air conditioning in villa

I have only just been informed there is an additional charge for use of air conditioning, which I think is understandable, but think I recall reading somewhere that this should be included in villa rental price. Can anyone advise?

Thanks

Gill

It probably means that the villa has not been registered and is not legal. The law is that all air conditioning should be included in the cost of the villa rental.

Common in Greece I think, but not Spain. I certainly wouldn't be booking one like that.

Was it concealed or did you not read the details?

As above your rental has not been declared to the council and is illegal, it won’t make any difference to you as your holiday rental will still go ahead but the owner has no right to ask you for any additional cash....something you might want to point out to him/her.

The main key points are:

The accommodation must be fitted with air conditioning in the living area and bedrooms and if you are renting out your property between October and April, it must also be fitted with heating, that maintains a temperature of 19 degrees

You must offer a changeover cleaning service in between each guest occupation

Your property must offer a free internet service

On arrival, your guests must be given a document (in contract format), which includes: owner’s name, property manager details (if applicable), your inscription number if the Registro de Turismo de Andalucía, number of guests, check in and out dates and total price

You must also keep receipts and proof of payments for each guest occupation

All proof of payments and guest contracts (above) must be kept and made available to the Junta de Andalucia or government administration office (e.g. Hacienda) when requested

Your prices should be advertising on a per night basis and include: water, electricity, heating, fridge, cleaning and bed and bath linen

You must send a confirmation of booking to every guest, which includes total price of stay, including any extra charges and deposit

You may ask for up to 30% of the total due as a booking deposit and a finance deposit on key collection

Thanks for that westwing2, I was looking for a list. I'm not too sure re the wifi, I don't think that is compulsory, but I'm sure someone will put me right on that point. I also wonder how the holidaymaker stands if anything happens, could the third party insurance become nul and void as it is not legal?

The "Free Wifi" condition was dropped from the requirements, but most places provide it now anyway.

Gill - that's very naughty then. I would email Homeaway for a start - they have their faults (mainly their fee) but they don't like things like that. I've found them very quick to respond when I've made mere suggestions.
