would expect the minimum standard of advertised properties to be
equivalent to at least a 4 star rating. Visit Wales' grading logos and logos from other Tourism / Travel
grading schemes will not be displayed on index or listing pages as many
properties do not subscribe to the Visit Wales or other similar schemes.
To ensure fairness, the display of such logos on some properties only,
might imply that these are of a higher standard than those that do not
display ratings logos.
Advertising more than one property on one advertisement

displays an individual property where people will spend their holidays
- not examples of properties in a given area. Only one property can
appear on each advertisement, unless it is a property with multiple
rental units on the same site, and additional advertising units are
purchased. West Wales Cottages reserves the right to amend the copy or
remove the advertisement, when more than one property is described in
Options 2 and 3 advertisers (see advertising page) can be listed
with as many agencies as they wish, but advertisers choosing option

elsewhere - This is to ensure that there is no possibility of double
bookings. If West Wales Cottages processes a holiday booking that
has been previously booked by another agent without West Wales
Cottages being so informed, then the owner will be liable for the
10% commission due at the time the booking was made.
