1. Scope of our Service
IgweMba provides an online platform through which different types of bookings/reservations, including accommodations (for example hotels, motels, hostels and bed & breakfasts, collectively the “hotels” and “rentals”), transportations (“Cars and Limousine services),can be made. By making a reservation/booking through IgweMba, you enter into a direct (legally binding) contractual relationship with the principal owner(s) of the services and properties published on our website. From the point at which you make your reservation, we act solely as an intermediary between you and the provider, transmitting the details of your reservation to the relevant services provider and sending you a confirmation email for and on behalf of the services provider.
When rendering reservations/bookings on IgweMba, the information that we disclose is based on the information provided to us by their principal owners (Hotels, Rentals, Cars, Apartments). As such, all rates, availability and other information which is displayed on our website are controlled by these principals. Although we will use reasonable skill and care in performing our services we will not verify if, and cannot guarantee that, all information is accurate, complete or correct, nor can we be held responsible for any errors (including manifest and typographical errors), any interruptions (whether due to any (temporary and/or partial) breakdown, repair, upgrade or maintenance of our website or otherwise), inaccurate, misleading or untrue information or non-delivery of information. Each accommodation provider remains responsible at all times for the accuracy, completeness and correctness of the (descriptive) information (including the rates and availability) displayed on our website. Our website does not constitute and should not be regarded as a recommendation or endorsement of the quality, service level, qualification or (star) rating of any accommodations made available.
2. Prices and Best Price Guarantee
The prices on our site are highly competitive. All prices on IgweMba are per room for your entire stay and are displayed including VAT tax and all other taxes (subject to change of such taxes), unless stated differently on our website or in the confirmation email.
Sometimes cheaper rates are available on our website for a specific stay at a property, however, these rates made by accommodations providers may carry special restrictions and conditions. Please check the room and rate details thoroughly for any such conditions prior to making your reservation.
IgweMba is always in constant communication with the principal owners of the services and properties advertised on our website in a bid to secure the best available price for you.
Obvious errors and mistakes (including misprints) are not binding.
All special offers and promotions are marked as such.

4. Free of Charge
Our service is free of charge because, we will not charge you for our service or add any additional (reservation) fees to the room rate.
In the light of the fact that IgweMba is yet new in the vacation rental business, we have therefore in the interest of trust decided not to activate any payment gateway on our website till we have at least earned the trust of our users. To this end, all payments are made to the principals at the receipt of the service. Our job for now remains solely to communicate to them of your intention to employ their services or properties.
Since payments are not made through our site, cancellations are free. You can place a call or e-mail to us to register your cancellations at any time.
