IMPORTANT NOTES ABOUT APARTMENTS , HOTELS AND OTHER SERVICES
Apartments. – When booking, the customer is fully and exclusively responsible for declaring the correct number of people to occupy the apartment, without omitting children whatever their age. It is noted that the apartment administration can legally refuse entry to those not declared, with no right to any claim for that cause. In some cases there is possibility to provide extra bed / s or baby cradle, which must be requested by customers before making the contract and only previously mentioned will not be included in the published price of the apartment.
In renting apartments, usually, you need to subscribe in situ the corresponding lease according to the official model approved. This contract , which is not part of the Organizing Agency, must be signed by the user, who will pay the bond or liability insurance to cover any possible damage, if that is required. The collection of keys is usually done during office hours, in the concierge of the building itself or in the place indicated in the program documentation / offer, from 9 to 13 and from 17 to 20 hours, performing, as a general rule, input from 17 pm on day of arrival and output on 10 hours on a day of departure. Given the peculiar operation of these establishments, we strongly recommend to respect rigorously these schedules, in avoidance of damages and discomforts very difficult to correct.
Hotels. – The quality and content of the services provided by the hotel will be determined by the official tourist category, allocated by the competent body of your country. Given the current legislation in this regard, which establishes only the existence of single and double rooms allowing in case of double rooms to put in a third bed, it is always deemed that the use of the third bed is made with the knowledge and consent of the persons that occupy the room. This tacit estimation derives from the certain circumstance of having been previously warned, as well as the room will be appearing as triple in all print reservation and tickets and / or in a final travel documentation. Also in cases of double rooms for use up to four people when it is specified in the program / brochure. The usual time of entry and exit in hotels is based on the first and last service that the user will use. As a general rule, the rooms may be used from 12 pm on day of arrival and must be vacated before 12 pm on departure day. In the event that the user provides their arrival at the hotel or apartment on dates or times other than those outlined, it is necessary, to avoid problems and misinterpretations, to communicate as early as possible such situation to the Organizing Agency or to the hotel or the apartment directly. You should also consult the Organizing Agency at the time of booking about the possibility of bringing animals as they are not generally accepted in hotels and apartments. In the event that the Organizing Agency was forced to change the confirmed hotel, due to celebrations of special events or situations beyond their control, liability shall be limited to providing a hotel of the same category or higher, assuming this impossibility to pay of the difference between the offered price in the contract and the final price of the really occupied.
Other Services. – On flights when arrival at destination is made after 12.00, the first service of the hotel, if included in the program / brochure, will be dinner. Similarly, on flights when arrival at destination is made after 19.00, the first service of the hotel will be the accommodation. It is always understood as a direct air route when the documentary consists of one flight coupon.
When users request on, with previous payment corresponding, additional services that cannot be definitively confirmed by the Organizing Agency and these cannot be provided, the Organizing Agency does not incur more responsibility than reimbursing the amount paid for such services and the user will receive it at the end of the journey through the Retail Agency.
