Terms and Conditions – Online Reservation

Online Vehicle Reservation

Our website is designed to allow customers search for information on our selection of new and used vehicles. When selecting a car online you can reserve it by paying a refundable deposit of €99, this will allow you to consider your purchase for up to 48 hours.

Throughout our site www.gowanmotors.ie prices displayed include VAT, unless stated otherwise. It is also possible to reserve a car by contacting res@gowanmotors.ie or 01 869 2160 If you would prefer not to use the online process. One of our experienced Sales Executives will help you reserve the desired vehicle, assuming it is still available.

Processing the Registration Fee

It is necessary for us to request your personal details including your address and payment information if you decide to proceed and reserve a car online with us. The reservation tool will prompt you to provide this information. When the necessary details have been provided and you select to “submit payment”, a sum of €99 will be debited from your bank account.

Once the Reservation Fee has been successfully received by us, you will receive an email confirmation to acknowledge receipt of the transaction. It is important to note, due to the nature of our business, the payment of the fee does not ensure that your reservation has been accepted. Subject to confirmation by us, all reservations are assumed prospective, as we need to ensure the selected car is available and not previously sold, or reserved by another customer.  

Your reservation will be confirmed by a Sales Executive who will help you complete the remaining steps required to purchase the vehicle. The vehicle will be reserved for 48 hours from the time when you receive reservation confirmation from a Sales Executive. This period allows you the necessary time to consider and proceed with the purchase of the vehicle. To complete the transaction it is required that you make an appointment and attend the Dealership where the car is stored. The final terms of the sale must then be agreed by both, our Sales Executives representing us, and you as the buyer.

The Reservation Period is subject to expiry should you decide not to purchase the vehicle within 48 hours. Upon cessation of this reservation period, we will process the return of your Reservation Fee. It is important to note, this process could take up to 14 working days depending on our respective third party financial institutions, and this waiting period is beyond our control. You can cancel your reservation at any moment during the 48 hour reservation period and request a refund by contacting res@gowanmotors.ie or by calling us on 01 869 2160.

At all times we will reserve the right to refuse the acceptance of a reservation fee at our own discretion.

Subject to Contract

By transferring the Reservation Fee, you are agreeing to be bound by our Terms. In return, you will be granted a 48 hour reservation period allowing you an exclusive right to consider your purchase of the vehicle. If you decide to proceed with your purchase of the vehicle, you must then enter a separate contract to complete the sale. Neither the payment of a Reservation Fee, nor reservation of the vehicle in any way implies a binding contract for sale/purchase of the vehicle, nor does it constitute on acceptance of an offer to sell the vehicle.
