Booking terms and cancellations
Terms of service
Naaranlahti applies the following conditions to bookings, reservations and cancellations of bookings connected with its cottage and room/ appartment services (bed and breakfast, half board, full board). These conditions become binding on both parties once the client has paid the deposit referred to in these conditions, or has paid both the deposit and the final payment at one and the same time.
Booking and payment
Naaranlahti will send the client a written confirmation/invoice which will include the name and address of the accommodation. Any complaints about the invoice must be made within 7 days of the invoice date. The rent must be paid into the Naaranlahti`s bank account indicated in the booking confirmation. The name of reservator and reference number/ number of invoice must be mentioned in payment. A booking is considered to be confirmed once the client has paid the deposit (30% of the final sum) by the due date (14 days from the invoicing date), or has paid both the deposit and the final payment at one and the same time. If a booking is made within less than six (6) weeks before the commencement of the rental period, the deposit will not be invoiced separately. If the total deposit is less than 70 €, the entire sum must be paid, in full, within 14 days of the invoicing date. If the deposit or final payment is not paid by the due date, Naaranlahti is entitled to cancel the booking.
Cancellation or change of booking
All cancellations must be made to Naaranlahti in writing (by letter or e-mail). A cancellation shall be considered accepted only after Naaranlahti has sent the client a written confirmation of acceptance. In the case of a cancellation, the client will forfeit the deposit. If the cancellation is made less than 28 days before the commencement of the stay, the client will be required to pay the entire sum for the accommodation. If it is possible to rent the accommodation to another person or party, from whom an equivalent sum is obtained, the deposit only will be retained by Naaranlahti. The foregoing notwithstanding, all sums paid to Naaranlahti will be refunded to the client, with the exception of the deposit, if the client, or a person from the same household, falls ill, has an accident or dies. In this case, cancellation must be notified to Naaranlahti without delay and properly verified, e.g. by a doctor's certificate. If the cancellation is made during the course of the holiday, payments already made by the client will not be refunded. A change in the location or in the actual rental period must be made at least six (6) weeks before the commencement of the stay. Changes made after this date will be treated as a cancellation of the previous booking and a subsequent new booking.
