EFT Payment

Full payment is required within 48 hours to secure your reservation. Payment can be made by EFT (banking details on request to info@olivetreefarm.co.za) or you need to furnish us with full credit card details to confirm the booking. Please send proof of payment to info@olivetreefarm.co.za.

Credit Card payment by Paybridge Secure Link

If you wish to pay by credit card we will send you a Paybridge card payment request with your invoice. The email contains a personalized message requesting the customer to complete the transaction by clicking on a URL link. This email is personalized with the customer’s name, exact amount, invoice and unique merchant reference number. Once the customer receives the email, they select the URL, which then opens a secure one-time payment page. The customer enters and submits their credit card details to complete the transaction.

Please advise your bank that an accommodation transaction will go through on your card as cards are often denied, if they are not advised.

Original Credit card to be present on arrival

If the original credit card is not present on arrival, a copy with a letter of consent to use the credit card must accompany your confirmation. All cards need to be presented on arrival. This is due to stolen cards being used for online bookings.

Our cancellation terms

Like all Hotels and Guest Houses we have a strict Cancellation Policy to protect us against cancellations. We only have a few rooms and cannot make up business lost. We have a live calendar with Nightsbridge which connects to many websites around the world giving instant online availability. Once a room is booked it is no longer available to sell on these websites. If cancelled for whatever reason you will be liable for full payment. Verbal and email bookings are binding as a confirmation of the booking. Companies/Travel agencies operating on a Bill back basis will also be liable to pay cancellation fees if cancelled whether we have a voucher or not.

Please make sure you or clients are aware of our policy before accepting accommodation at our establishment.
