Booking Terms and Conditions (private accommodations, hotels, guest houses)

For the tourist agency called "Turist",
based in Veli Losinj, at Obala m. Tita 17 (hereinafter referred to as "the Agency")

At the time of confirmation of your reservation, the Agency assumes that you have taken vision of these terms and conditions and that you will meet the provisions contained therein.

1. Offer

Questions can be forwarded via e-mail or telephone. Replies will be sent via e- mail or fax in order to present the best of the accommodation unit selected. In response to your question, we will send you the offer relating to your needs or, if we are not able to meet all the guests' needs, we will send the offer relating to a solution which is as similar as possible to what is requested.

The Agency guarantees the truthfulness of the data and descriptions of the images relating to the selected accommodation unit characteristics, as well as the prices and the conditions of the unit proposed.
If, in the case of force majeure, the apartment is not available upon your arrival, the Agency will provide an alternative accommodation at the same price although this latter is of a superior type and category with respect to the one booked.

2. Booking

Through the acceptance of the offer, which is completed upon the payment of the deposit for the accommodation unit selected, the guests automatically accept the conditions set out by the Agency. Through the payment of the deposit set out by the Agency, the signature of the agreement, of the voucher or of the special card, as well as through the communication of the data of the credit card in case of remote purchase of the services, the guests establish a legal relationship with the Agency and confirm to be aware of these General Terms and Conditions for the provision of the accommodation services and fully accept them. The payment costs are to be borne by the guests. At the time of booking, the guests are obliged to provide all the personal data provided for the booking procedure.

At the time of booking the accommodation, the guests are required to pay a deposit ranging from 30% to 50% of the total amount, depending on the accommodation unit and the booking term. If the deposit is not paid within the prescribed period, the booking will be considered void and the Agency shall have the right to propose the accommodation unit to other guests. Following the payment and the receipt of the relevant deposit, the Agency will send the confirmation of booking to the guests.

3. Agency Entitlement To Change And Cancel Your Reservation

The Agency is entitled to change your reservation if unforeseeable exceptional, inevitable or uncontrollable events occur. The accommodation unit being booked can only be replaced - after communication to the guests - with another accommodation unit of a similar or superior category and at the same price as indicated in the reservation made by the guests.

If the replacement of the accommodation unit is only possible with another one of a superior category and at a price higher than 10% of that indicated in the reservation, the Agency is entitled to pay this difference after discussing with the guests.

If it is not possible to replace the accommodation unit already paid for, the Agency is entitled to cancel the reservation by notifying the guests at least seven days prior to the date of arrival and it guarantees the guests for the entire repayment of the amount paid. If there is no adequate replacement on the same day of the arrival, the Agency will endeavor to provide information to the guests on the accommodation units available that are not being offered by the Agency and it will proceed with the entire repayment of the amount paid.

4. Guests' Entitlement To Change And Cancel Their Reservation

If the guests intend to change or cancel a reservation meeting their requirements, they must notify it in written to the Agency (via e-mail, mail). "Change" means any variation in the number of people or in the date of arrival and/or departure for the accommodation unit within and not later than sixty days from the date of actual performance of the accommodation services. The first reservation change, if possible without additional costs, will be carried out free of charge. If the reservation change is not possible, and for this reason the guests decide to cancel the confirmed reservation, the following conditions relating to a reservation cancellation will apply. The change in the accommodation unit and any other changes made after the period of sixty days referred to above will be regarded as a reservation cancellation.

In case of cancellation of a reservation already confirmed for a certain private accommodation unit, the date of receipt of the written cancellation is considered as the effective date for the calculation of the cancellation costs as indicated below. The date of notification by the guests of their intention to proceed with a cancellation is considered as the basis for calculating the cancellation costs of the reservation:

  • Any cancellations notified within the period of sixty days prior to the  performance of the accommodation services imply the 10% payment of the accommodation price after the cost required for money transfer;
  • Any cancellations notified between the 59th and the 8th day before the arrival do not allow the guests to receive any repayment of the deposit already paid;
  • Any cancellations notified between the 7th day and on the same day of their expected arrival date imply the full payment of the accommodation unit being booked by the guests. In the event of no-show of the guests by midnight of the expected arrival day without any prior notice to the Agency or to the lessor, the reservation will be considered canceled and the cancellation fees referred to above will apply. If the guests canceling their stay find another host succeeding to their same reservation, the Agency will charge only the effective for the takeover.

In case of force majeure our booking rules and conditions apply as in normal conditions.
