2/ Cancellation conditions


All reservation cancellation should be confirmed by letter, fax or email to The Booking Centre.
In addition, all modifications to bookings should be asked by letter, fax or email as well.

You have to keep the Booking Centre informed of any change about the persons coming for the stay (name, age….). If you don’t give us right information, the cancellations conditions below won’t be applicable.
 
The Booking Centre offers for every booking an optional cancellation – interruption insurance for your holiday. It costs 3.5 % of the total amount of the accommodation (excluding local holiday tax). This permits the full reimbursement of the accommodation cost paid, so long as the reason for cancellation is included in the list of guarantees defined in the insurance policy ( see paragraph 3/).

If you do not want the cancellation – interruption insurance for your holiday, we thank you to notice it in the present contract. Without any information from you, we will consider that you want to subscribe at the cancellation – interruption insurance for your holiday. Once your payment is done, no change would be possible regarding the subscription or not at the cancellation – interruption insurance for your holiday.
 

Cancellation charges without insurance are as follows:

Cancellation + 30 days before the holiday starts = 30 % of the total will be kept by the Reservation Centre.
Cancellation between 29 and 15 days before the holiday starts = 50% of the total amount kept.
Cancellation between 14 and 8 days before the holiday starts = 75% of the total amount kept.
Cancellation between 7 days and the day of arrival = 100% of the total amount kept.

Please note that all modifications leading to a change of accommodation from a smaller apartment to a bigger, or any changes in dates, will be considered as a cancellation of the initial order to which the above cancellation charges will be applicable. Your request has to be made per post mail, email or fax.
Be careful, in case of modification or cancellation of complementary services, you must send us an email, a mail or a fax and you first have to pay the total amount and you will be reimbursed after.
The complementary services, other than the accommodation, the shuttle services and the ski wear rental, will be reimbursed completely by The Booking Centre, if they have been cancelled before the beginning of their valid period, except for the ESF ski lessons, for which cancellation fees of 20€ will be deducted. For the shuttle services and the ski wear rental, the cancellation fees will be the same as the accommodation fees (see above).
All interruption to a holiday due to a personal reason will not attract any repayment from the Reservation Centre.

On the rare occasion that The Booking Centre has to modify or cancel a reserved service, the Reservation Centre promises to offer a replacement service which will be offered in writing, and which you must accept or refuse within 24 hours. If you accept the new proposition, you will receive a new contract.
Please note that if a reply has not been received within the specified time, the new proposition will be considered as accepted.
