5.2  When there is a Completed Sale and Canny Travel has received all required payments from the buyer, Canny Travel shall notify the relevant travel operator who is providing the Holiday of the name change to ensure that the buyer’s name replaces the seller’s name in relation to the Holiday.

6.            Fees and Commission

6.1  Subscribing to Canny Travel and bidding on holidays is free. Any transactions undertaken on the Site will be subject to the following fees:

(c)  a booking administration fee charged per passenger following a Completed Sale (the “Buyer Fee”);

(d)  any late payment fees required by Canny Travel or any other fees as are levied by the travel operator (the “Additional Fees“).

6.2  Additionally, on a Completed Sale, Canny Travel charges a percentage of the sum saved by the seller of the Holiday (the “Salvage Saving”) as commission (the “Commission”) and shall retain the Commission and other applicable fees by deducting such amounts from the Bid Price.

We may change these fees at any time, and any change will be effective after the expiry of 7 (seven) days following the date of posting on the Site (or such later date as we may notify).  For the avoidance of doubt, the relevant fees are those notified to you when a listing is made and as notified to you on every subsequent re-listing.  We may at our sole discretion change some or all of our services at any time. In the event we introduce a new service, the fees for that service are effective from the launch of the service.

6.3  Unless otherwise stated, all fees are payable in GB Pounds Sterling. Whether you are a business or not, value added tax (VAT) and other taxes may apply to your transaction.

(d)  any Additional Fees.

7.2  Within fourteen (14) days of receiving payment from the buyer, Canny Travel shall, unless entitled to withhold a transfer under any provision of these Terms, transfer the Bid Price to the seller less the deductable Fees provided the seller has complied fully with the provisions of Clause 4.1.
