Destination Lapland Oy – Terms of Online reservation
The marketing organisation follows the following terms regarding orders, reservations and cancellations of services. These terms shall be binding to both parties when the Customer has paid the payment mentioned in these contractual terms.
Reservation and Payment
In the online-booking system the Customer pays the accommodation in advance. Handling fee of 9€ is charged together with the payment. The booking is confirmed when marketing organisation has received the payment either by credit card or online banking system. A booking confirmation can be printed in the online-shop by the Customer.
Customer instructions, booking confirmation and the address of the office and of the cabin will be sent to the Customer by E-mail. At the arrival, the Customer must show the booking confirmation to the person handing over the key. The marketing organisation is obliged to assure that the Customer gets the holiday services that he has ordered. Handling fee 50 € will be charged when changing the reservation.
Marketing organisation’s right to change prices
Once an agreement has been made, marketing organisation has the right to raise the agreed price in the event of any changes in the taxes or public charges affecting the price of the holiday service.
A cancellation shall always be made in writing to the marketing organisation. If the Customer cancels the reservation until 30 days before the beginning of the stay, the Customer gets back the payment, from which the handling fee of 9 € and cancellation expenses of 50 € / cabin shall be deducted. If a cancellation is made later than 30 days before the beginning of the stay, the whole rent is charged. A cancellation is regarded as valid the moment when the marketing organisation has been informed of it. If the Customer can show that the cancellation has been made and sent to the right address in time, the cancellation is approved even if it came late or never reached its destination.
If the marketing organisation is able to re-rent the cabin to another customer, the part of the rent, which we will receive from the new customer, will be refunded.
If the Customer changes cabin or apartment or time of arrival, the earlier booking is regarded as being cancelled, and change is regarded as being a new booking.
If the Customer interrupts their booking and departs the holiday destination before the end of the lease period, no compensation will be paid for the unused time and the Customer is not entitled to a rent refund.
It is recommended to take a travel insurance in case of illnesses.
