1. Why should I participate in the cancellation fund?
Of course you are not going to assume that your vacation falls through, for example due to illness of yourself or a family member. Or that there is another reason why your holiday should be canceled. Participation in the cancellation fund avoids double bad luck: do not continue your holiday and that you still have to pay for it. The due amount is paid simultaneously with the booking fee, this saves you an effort and costs. To participate, you do not need to fill in any additional documents or to make separate payments. In short, the cancellation fund is easy, simple and advantageous. To save costs, you can better specify requests to join it already while booking.
2. How can I participate and what does it cost?
On the booking form you indicate that you would like to participate. You do this by clicking the cancellation fund in additional costs. This means also that you have read the terms and conditions and you agree. The participation fee is 8% of the rent.
If you pay for a holiday for example a rental fee 300,00 euro, the cost is only € 24,--. These charges are listed separately on your confirmation, your booking confirmation is also your proof of participation. The participation fee has to be fully paid with the first payment.
