HOW TO BOOK / FAQ
- How can I reserve a package or discount offer?
You can find the current offers at our "discounts&packages" page and at the bottom af each hotel's detailed description. By clicking on the "book this package" button, you can initiate a reservation.
Please make sure that the requested period, number of people etc. meet the criteria of the certain special offer.
In case of booking a package or discount offer the total price is not calculated automatically. Our colleagues verify if the requested booking corresponds to the terms and conditions of the package and send you a confirmation with the total price.

In case of booking an apartment, you will be asked to pay in cash upon arrival, unless otherwise specified. Additionally 1 night fee is to be paid upon arrival as a deposit, which will be returned on departure, if no damages were made. The price of the apartment contains taxes, linen and cleaning. Breakfast is not included. The key can be picked-up at the apartment at the previously agreed time (some owner have own customer service office).

There are two types of availabilities. If you seen the green "availability" sign, it means that the accommodation provider provides us up-to-date availability information. The accommodaion is bookable, unless the requested dates are marked with red x. If you see "on request" sign, it means that the availability will be checked after receiving your request.

Our partner hotels and apartments provide us a discounted price, which is usually CHEAPER than their normal tariffs. These rates are not available when booking directly at the hotel or apartment. Moreover we continuously offer special discounts that change frequently.

Set the dates and type of accommodation. Dates marked with red x, means that the accommodation is booked. Choose the accommodation of your choice from the listings. Fill in the reservation form, provided on our SSL secure site, including your credit card details. Your card will not be charged in advance, we need the details as a guarantee for your reservation. As soon as we have received your request we send you an information note stating that we acknowledged your booking request and our team reserves the services at the hotel of your choice. In case the type of room and services you have selected are available, we send you a confirmation. A request for booking does not mean automatic approval of your reservation. It depends on the availability of the requested hotel room.

If there are no rooms available with the desired criteria, we will contact you and we will find another hotel that meets your expectation (that is why we inquire about your second choice in the reservation form).

NO, we need your credit card data to guarantee your reservation, the only case when your card is charged, when you fail to cancel your booking 24 hours before arrival and you don't show up.
