Online booking terms
Booking and Deposit
In order to confirm your booking, we must receive the online prepayment. The required prepayment amount depends on: the selected apartment, the number of guests and the length of your stay. This amount is shown in the price calculation and also on the online booking form.
Please note that the booking is not confirmed until the prepayment is received; you then receive the booking confirmation by email. The remaining balance, along with the damage deposit, needs to be paid in cash or by Credit card (+2% charge, not in all the apartments) upon arrival, unless otherwise stated. See "How to Book" Section.
You will be asked for your credit card details as a guarantee against loss of, or damage to, any of the owner's items and any damage to the apartment itself caused during your stay.
In case you cannot provide us with a credit card, you will be asked to pay a security deposit from 200 to 700 € is required, depending on the accommodation (see apartment description) and length of your stay. The security deposit will be refunded to you at your check-out. A deposit of 300 euros is compulsory for any bookings of more than 5 people or more than 7 days.
The security deposit is refunded at your departure, after the accommodation manager has inspected the apartment. In case of damage or loss to the property during your stay or other services, a charge will be deducted from the security deposit and the difference refunded to you.
If the damages or loss caused exceeds the security deposit the guest will undertake to pay the difference.
Cancellation or change
Cancellation fees depend on notice given and are as follows: - Notice given less than 14 days prior to arrival: 50% of the total balance; - Notice given less than 24 hours or no prior notice: 100% of the total balance. Please note that the prepayment is non-refundable, not even in the case of force majeure. To modify the number of guests: with fewer guests, the remaining balance stays the same; with more guests, you pay the required supplement on arrival. To change the number of days: with fewer days, the remaining balance stays the same; with more days, you pay the required additional sum on arrival. Requesting an apartment change from that of your confirmed booking is considered as a de facto cancellation. To change an apartment; you must make a new booking. This is regarded as a new booking and is subject to the StopinFlat Terms and conditions. All cancellations or changes must be made via email or fax.
