These terms apply to your use of the booking service ("the Service") operated by Michael Brandon trading as Time2Dine. Members may use the site to secure bookings for services at participating businesses,
including but not limited to restaurants and babysitting/care assistant. Time2Dine is only a booking service. It is the members responsibility to
pay for the services the business provides ie pay the restaurants for the food and beverages
consumed or the babysitter for their services.
Once a reservation is made through the Service, it will be confirmed onscreen and
automatically to your e-mail address. The business is then contacted automatically
via email, fax, text message or other electronic service.
The businesses have the opportunity to refuse the booking but given our agreements
and systems with them this should rarely happen.
Refer "Our Commitments" below.
While the facility for cancellations is available, it should be used with care.
There is no fee for restaurant cancellations, but Domestic & Service Personnel Ltd will
charge you a cancellation fee for same day babysitting cancellations.
Time2Dine reserves the right to terminate your membership on excessive use of the
cancellation service as compared to valid bookings. Renewed membership will be at
the discretion of Time2Dine. Where possible, you will be advised before your
membership is cancelled and you will be given the right to respond.
The offers are not valid in conjunction with any other offer or voucher.
To book, you must have obtained membership through Time2Dine and place the booking
through the Time2Dine service.
Time2Dine is committed to providing an informative interactive site.
However, part of this entails a number of risks.
We can therefore provide no warranty that the material is accurate or up to date:
- Will the business be aware of the fax/email or other notification of booking?
- Have the restaurant offers, menus, wine list or prices changed?
- Has the business overbooked for the night?
- Is the restaurant out of business or are there new owners?
We have put in place a number of systems, and have it as a condition of service
with the businesses that they keep us informed of changes:
- The businesses ensure that a fax machine, computer or other electronic device is readily accessible to staff taking bookings.
- The restaurants let us know when offers, menus and wine lists change - we also keep in regular contact with the restaurants.
- The restaurants have the ability to reduce the number of seats they have on offer for a session.
- Once they receive a booking they have the ability to contact you or Time2Dine to rescind the booking (time being of essence).
Our goal is to give you an excellent level of service. It is therefore your responsibility to inform us when the service you get
is less than satisfactory, so we can take steps to improve the level of service we provide.
Please advise us of any service issues via http://www.time2dine.co.nz/feedback.php.
Given that the restaurants have final sign off, they are responsible for the accuracy of
the offers, menus and wine lists. Offers are made the discretion of the restaurant manager.

whatsoever including but not limited to those arising from loss of profits, business,
