About our services
GOFREEDLY BOOKINGS operates the Internet Booking Platform www.gofreedly.com. The Service is designed to provide clients with access to information, relating to available offers by activities and leisure providers (which may hereafter be referred to collectively as Host(s)”) GOFREEDLY BOOKINGS acts as an intermediary between the Hosts and the customers. GOFREEDLY BOOKINGS is not a contracting party between the Host and the customers.
The Host offers his services (accommodation or leisure activities) under his own brand/company name or if providing services as an individual, his name. Hosts promote their services on the GOFREEDLY BOOKINGS Platform.
The Host may register on GOFREEDLY BOOKINGS Platform and upload a service/services to GOFREEDLY BOOKINGS administration for review. GOFREEDLY BOOKINGS will check the eligibility of the service/s and the Host. GOFREEDLY BOOKINGS administrators may communicate with the Host for verification purposes and further explanations regarding information posted on the listing. GOFREEDLY BOOKINGS facilitators may suggest improvements in the content of the listing. GOFREEDLY BOOKINGS will only approve listings that exhibit high quality in the actual content as well as in their description. We are interested in activities that add real value to someone's travel experience and offer a unique perspective that enriches travel. In the case of a positive decision, the service will be approved, and the Host can start to receive bookings.
