GENERAL CONDITIONS OF SALE (Update : july 26th 2022)
Reservation & cancellation by the tenant
The reservation will only be effective upon receipt of the deposit.
In the event of cancellation of this reservation or non-occupation of the premises, the deposit paid by the client will remain acquired by the owner as compensation, unless the association finds a new tenant for the same period and at the same price.
Interruption of stay / non-occupation
The owner reserves the right to consider that a tenant does not follow up on his reservation if he has not occupied the rented premises 48 hours after the planned arrival date or if he has not informed the owner of his delay within the same period; in no case can his delay be deducted from the rental amount.
After payment of the balance, and in the event of interruption of the stay or non-occupation of the accommodation by the tenant, there will be no reimbursement by the owner.
Any departure later than the time indicated by the owner will result in an additional day's rent being due.
The association proposes a cancellation insurance, Tranqui'loc, for those who wish to take out directly by internet, the link being indicated in the client's file and in the booking contract.
Modification or cancellation by the owner
In the exceptional case where a confirmed file is modified or cancelled due to the owner's fault, the owner undertakes to make a new proposal equivalent or superior to the client.
Within 8 days after having been notified in writing, the tenant must :
either terminate his reservation, (in this case the owner will return the deposit within 8 days),
or accept the proposed stay by signing an amendment to the proposal.
