2.7.1 Where credit card details have been provided to the Accommodation, and save for reservations paid through Facilitated Payment (in which event this Clause 2.7 is not applicable), guarantee of the booking is based on the credit card details provided by the Guest or the person responsible for the booking.

If the credit card (or any alternative guarantee made by the Guest) is not effective or valid for any reason, this shall always be at the risk and for the account of the Accommodation.
