General terms and conditions

General terms and conditions

Here are the most important points

For cancellation conditions, see §5:

- up to 3 months before arrival: no cancellation fee;
- up to 1 month before the arrival date: 40% of the total package price;
- until 1 week before the arrival day: 70% of the total package price;
- within the last week before the day of arrival: 90% of the total package price.

1) After the guest’s booking and confirmation by the RC, the guest and the accommodation company submit to the General Terms and Conditions of the Hotel Industry for Austria (AGBH 2006).

2) The Lech Zürs reservation centre (hereinafter referred to as RC for short) is merely an intermediary broker in the accommodation contract between the guest and the accommodation provider. RZ is therefore not liable for breaches of contract by the guest or the accommodation company and also not for other brokered services such as e.g. ski school, ski pass etc. In the event of breach of its own obligations, the reservation centre is liable up to a maximum of the amount of the agreed fee. All information about the accommodation companies is stated to the best of its knowledge, but without guarantee of correctness.

3) The offers made by the RC to the guest are non-binding. A valid reservation only comes into effect after the guest’s booking is in writing and after written confirmation from the RC. After receipt of the signed booking and the down payment (credit card, receipt of payment on the bank account of RC), the RC transmits the confirmation of payment. Down payment amounts, which were transferred to our account without previous written confirmation from the RC, will be returned (if not possible otherwise) at the expense of the payer.

4) The RC recommends that guests purchase travel cancellation insurance and/or travel interruption insurance.
