CONDITIONS AND CONTRACT DEVELOPMENT
The agency communicates its rental offers by all means and, if necessary, by all types of advertising. The rental contract is then only drawn up after confirmation of the rental by the agency, and will take place within the month when the part payment is paid. After this time, if the agency has not confirmed the rental, it will return the part payment immediately, and the booking will be considered as null and void.
All cancellations must be notified by registered letter. The date on which the letter is presented will determine the date of cancellation.
Should the tenant be the one to cancel, the following conditions shall apply: More than 7 days: the deposit is kept. Less than 28 days or no-show at the start of stay: 100% of the stay is invoiced. In the event of a cancellation supported by a reason, should the premises be re-rented, the paid amount will be returned to the tenant who cannot honor his/her contract. Stays begun and then shortened or interrupted by the tenant do not entitle the latter to any refunds. Should the agency be obliged to cancel the stay in the building planned, due to factors caused by third-parties or external circumstances, it shall supply, if possible, accommodation of the same category or of a higher category, without any additional invoicing. If the agency is unable to do so, it undertakes to refund immediately the totality of the sum paid.
As Covid-19 special circumstances
We strongly recommend that travelers check with their insurance that in the event of measures by the French government imposing the closure of the ski lifts of the ski resort, their stay can be insured. The crises that may lead to a partial or total closure of the ski area being now known, the agency cannot guarantee a total refund.
