The Organizer reserves the right to change a booking in case of extraordinary circumstances that cannot be foreseen, avoided or averted (see point 2.). Booked accommodation can be replaced only with prior notification of the traveler, and only with accommodation of the same or higher category and at the accommodation price on the basis of which the traveler confirmed the booking. If the replacement accommodation is possible only in an object of a higher category, the price of which is 15% higher than the price of the paid booking, the Organizer reserves the right, in agreement with the Traveler, to require the Traveler to pay the difference in price. In case the paid accommodation cannot be replaced, the Organizer reserves the right to cancel the booking, notifying the Traveler at least 7 days before the start of the service. In this case, the Organizer is responsible for returning to the Traveler the entire amount already paid by him/her. In case of cancellation of a reservation by the Organizer, the Traveler has no right to claim compensation from the Organizer, the Organizer is obliged to refund only the amount paid into the Organizer ‘s account. If an adequate substitute cannot be provided on the day of the commencement of the service, the Organizer will endeavor to provide the Traveler with information on possible substitute accommodations that are not part of the Organizer ‘s offer and will refund the Traveler, in any case, the entire amount paid for the booking.
Each traveler or holder of a confirmed reservation has the right to complain about the non-performance of agreed services. If the services listed in the offer have been provided incorrectly, the traveler is obliged to complain about the non-conforming service on the day of arrival and to inform the Organizer about it by e-mail [email protected]. The Traveler is obliged to cooperate in good faith with the Service Provider and the Organizer in eliminating the causes of his/her complaint. If the Traveler is dissatisfied with the situation found on the spot, leaves the object and finds a new accommodation on his own initiative, without having given the Organizer the opportunity to eliminate the causes of dissatisfaction or to find a substitute accommodation, this Traveler cannot claim a refund of the paid booking amount, as well as compensation for damages, without taking into account the fact that his reasons are justified or not. If the Traveler accepts on the spot a solution offered for his complaint, which corresponds to the paid service, the Organizer will neither consider nor respond to a subsequent complaint of the Traveler.
If the problem has not been solved even after an intervention on the spot, the Traveler is obliged to send a written complaint together with the accompanying documents and photographs that clearly show the reason for the complaint to the Organizer by e-mail to [email protected] or by mail to your address no later than 8 days after returning from the vacation. The Organizer will consider only fully documented complaints received within the specified period of 8 days after the end of the service.
The Organizer is required to provide a written decision on the complaint within 14 days of receipt. The Organizer may extend the time period for making a decision on the grievance for an additional 14 days if further information and verification with the provider is necessary to make a decision on the grievance. The Organizer shall consider only those grievances that could not be resolved on the spot.
The highest possible compensation in case of a complaint is the refund of the agreed price for the complained service. The compensation does not include the already used services and not the total price of the arrangement. With the law on the provision of tourist services, the right of the traveler to compensation for ideal damage is excluded.
