Package travel, additional terms

Saariselkä Booking Ltd’s additional terms and conditions for package travel

Reservation and payment

A reservation is confirmed when the deposit of 30 % of the gross price of the reservation plus office costs has been paid by the due date. The deposit invoice and final invoice will be sent together. The final payment must be made, at the latest, 6 weeks prior to the beginning of the stay. At the same time, the party making the reservation will be sent, information about the lodgings, instructions for picking up and returning the key and the Saariselkä Booking Ltd`s conditions of reservation.
Non-payment is not a cancellation. Saariselkä Booking Ltd reserves the right to cancel a reservation in the event that the payment is not made by the due date.

Reservation on the internet

When making a reservation on the Internet, the client can choose the method of payment desired:

  • Pay the deposit immediately and print out the final invoice and pay it by the due date.
  • Pay the full sum immediately. If the reservation date is soon, only the final invoice is printed out and paid.

When reserving via the Internet, the client shall be responsible for obtaining his or her own invoice and conditions of reser-vation. The reservation system will send confirmation to the email address provided by the client upon registration. The staff of Saariselkä Booking Ltd will not send the invoices, confirmation etc. to the client. The client can print them from the booking system. If the reservation is paid for, in full or in part, the client must ensure that, after the payment transaction, he or she returns to the confirmation pages of Saariselkä Booking Ltd`s reservation system. If after the payment the client does not go back to the Saariselkä Booking Ltd’s pages, the reservation will not be registered and the reservation system will not send an email confirmation of the reservation.

Saariselkä Booking Ltd shall not be liable for failed reservations; the client must contact Saariselkä Booking Ltd immediately for assistance. In this situation, Saariselkä Booking Ltd will not guarantee that the lodgings will still be available. In the event that the lodgings are not available, the money will be returned or the client will be offered other lodgings according to availability.
