Rental terms and conditions in full

These terms will come into effect and bind both parties once the tenant has paid the booking fee detailed in these terms and conditions, or has paid both the booking fee and the total rental sum at once.

Terms for booking and payment

The tenant will be sent an invoice with details of the proprietor’s name and address, driving instructions, information concerning handing over of keys, and money transfer forms for rent payment. Any comments regarding the invoice must be made known to the proprietor within seven (7) days from the date of the invoice. The invoice reference number must be used when making the payment.

Booking is confirmed once the tenant has paid the booking fee (25% of the total rental price) by the due date (seven (7) days from the date of the invoice), or has paid both the booking fee and the remaining total rental sum at once. If booking is made later than 28 days prior to the intended start of the rental period, the total sum of the booking must be paid in one instalment within two (2) days from the date of the invoice. If booking is made six days prior to the intended arrival, the total sum must be paid at once on the same day. Should the payments or the due dates be neglected, the booking can be cancelled without a separate notification to the customer.

If the booking is made by phone, the payment (either the booking fee or, in instances described above, the total rental sum) must be made on the same day into the account detailed by the proprietor. Details concerning the bought services must be indicated on the payment form, as well as any possible reference numbers specified by the proprietor. Before the tenant can begin using the facilities, a proof of payment must be provided.

Refund of deposit

Deposit for keys and cleaning will be refunded to the tenant’s bank account on the next working day once the tenancy period has ended.

Cancellation policy

Cancellation must always be made in writing (letter, e-mail) directly to the proprietor. Booking will be considered cancelled once the proprietor has received notification of the cancellation. If the prospective tenant can prove that the cancellation has been made and sent to the correct address at the correct time, it will be accepted even if it were to reach the proprietor late or not at all.

Booking fee will be charged when cancelling a reservation. If the customer cancels the reservation later than 28 days prior to the intended start of the rental period, the rental sum will be charged in full. 

If the cancellation is made due to an unexpected accident or a serious event involving the customer or a group member, the customer will be reimbursed the total sum already paid, excluding the booking fee. The proprietor must be informed of the cancellation immediately and a reliable verification of the event must be provided, e.g. a doctor’s certificate. If cancellation is made later than 48 hours prior to the intended start of the rental period, customer’s payments will not be refunded.

Proprietor’s right to cancel a reservation

In case of an insurmountable obstacle (force majeure), the proprietor reserves the right to cancel a reservation. In such cases the customer will be given full refund on all payments made.
