The sales agreement is then confirmed.

2.2 Placing the Order

The Client is requested to fill in their e-mail address for each reservation and, if necessary, identify themselves by means of a form with which they create a personal client account.

2.3 Availability

The Services offered on the Website are available and can be reserved. However, it is emphasized that some Services are available in small quantities and managed in real time. As a result, a Service indicated as 'available' may become 'unavailable' if multiple customers order it on the website at the same time, the first customer who places a reservation is given priority. If TRAVELSKI is unable to fulfill an Order because the Service is not available, the customer will be informed of this by e-mail or telephone within 48 hours of placing the Order. The follow-up is managed in accordance with Article 6.1.

2.4 Confirmation of the Order

Within two (2) hours after payment of the Order, the Client will receive confirmation of the Order by e-mail.

Travelski

Article 3: Price and Payment

3.1 Price

All prices are expressed in pounds and include taxes (VAT). The price only includes the Services that are explicitly stated in the Order. Local charges such as city/tourism tax are not included in the price shown and must be paid on arrival of the Customer at the accommodation. These costs must be paid upon arrival where appropriate and usually in local currency (EUR). The amount of the residence tax varies per municipality. The tourist tax is calculated per person and per night. In general, and unless otherwise specified, the price does not include: insurance, parking costs, accommodation tax, excess baggage, excursions, personal costs, and all services not mentioned in the travel description.

3.2 Booking fees

For each order, a booking fee of £19 is charged. These costs can vary depending on the advertising campaigns. The amount that is applicable is always stated on the quotation before the sales agreement is concluded and on the Order.

3.3 Review of prices

TRAVELSKI reserves the right to raise or lower prices after concluding the agreement due to significant variations of:

  • the levies and taxes relating to the services offered, such as landing rights, departure or arrival taxes in ports and at airports,
  • the costs for passenger transport resulting from fuel costs and other energy costs, the level of taxes or levies on the travel services included in the agreement,
  • the exchange rates applied to the trip or stay, if applicable.

Even then, TRAVELSKI will absorb an amount equal to 2% of your holiday price before passing on any surcharge to the Customer. Only amounts in excess of this 2% will be surcharged. A revision of the price upwards is sent to the Customer per printed copy, with the justification and the calculation thereof, no later than twenty (20) days before departure. In the event of a price increase of more than 8% of the total price, the Customer can cancel the Order free of charge, provided that this is done within 72 hours after the revised price has been communicated by TRAVELSKI. In the absence of this, the cancellation costs provided for in Article 5.1 may be applied.

3.4 Promotional codes

The Customer is informed that service providers/accommodation holders can have promotional codes for the Customer. Only promotional codes that were submitted when placing the Order are taken into account.

3.5 Payment methods

For Orders for travel with a departure date within 35 days, payment of the full Order is required. For Orders for travel with a departure date after more than 35 days, the Order only becomes definitive after a deposit of 10% of the total amount. The remainder must be paid no later than 35 days before departure. The collection of payment by TRAVELSKI is a condition for processing the Order. The payment is only considered to be settled after the receipt of the amounts due in the secure payment system of TRAVELSKI. The following applies: when paying by bank card or credit card - if the payment has been confirmed by the payment center; when paying by bank transfer - if the money is in the TRAVELSKI account. If bank details have been provided by the Customer as a guarantee for a payment method, the payment of the amount can be made with this if the said payment method cannot be used to collect the amount within the specified period.

3.6 Means of payment

A deposit for an Order of Services can only be paid with a bank card or credit card. The remainder of the Order is automatically paid by debit card or credit card. If a payment incident occurs with the bank card or credit card, the Customer can transfer the remainder according to the payment methods listed below.

3.6.1 Payment by bank card or credit card

Subject to statements to the contrary to the Order, only debit or credit cards from VISA and EUROCARD/MASTERCARD are accepted. To make the payment, the Customer must enter the 15 or 16 digits of the pass, the expiry date, as well as the 3 or 4 digits of the security code. For Remote Orders, the Customer receives the proof of payment by e-mail within two (2) hours after the transaction.

3.6.2 Payment by bank transfer

In the event that the automatic payment of the remainder of the Order by bank card is refused, the Customer will receive a reminder email stating that the payment must be made within 72 hours. If payment has not been made within the aforementioned period, TRAVELSKI reserves the right to cancel the Order without any other formality and holds the deposit already paid as cancellation costs that are calculated in accordance with Article 5.3. If the amount withheld is not sufficient, the remainder will be demanded by a suitable amicable or judicial procedure.

3.7 Security of payments / fraud prevention

The electronic payments made in the context of the Orders by telephone via the call center or online on the Website are secured (SYSTEMPAY by Banque Popular Rives de Paris) by using an encryption system that guarantees the confidentiality and security of the data. As part of the TRAVELSKI anti-fraud policy, the company reserves the right to ask Clients for each payment method: a copy of an identity card/passport, a copy of the bank card, the telephone number, and a time when the Customer can be reached, the details of the bank that manages the bank card or account, and all additional information with which the payment can be secured. If information like the above is refused, TRAVELSKI reserves the right to cancel the Order and to keep the amounts already paid as cancellation costs, calculated in accordance with Article 5.1.

3.8 Invoice

The Client receives their invoice by e-mail two (2) days after the end of the stay. For specific requests regarding the invoice (special mention or changes), £15 processing costs will be charged.

Travelski

Article 4: No Right of Withdrawal

For avoidance of doubt, the right of withdrawal cannot be exercised for distance purchases of services such as 'accommodation, transport, restaurants, leisure activities' ordered as a package or separately for a fixed date or period. As a result, the Customer is not entitled to a withdrawal period for Orders for Services offered by TRAVELSKI.

If a Customer does not show up at the holiday residence, they will be invoiced for 100% of the total amount of the Order, including options. If insurance is concluded which covers interruption or cancellation of the stay after departure, the Client must comply with the provisions of the applicable insurance policy.

5.3 Cancellation before departure

Article 6: Change and Cancellation at Initiative of TRAVELSKI

6.1 Change before departure

We reserve the right to cancel your booking or change any of the facilities, services, or prices described in our brochures or website. We will endeavor to advise you of any changes known at the time of booking. TRAVELSKI informs the Client about minor changes. The Customer cannot claim compensation for minor changes made by TRAVELSKI. If TRAVELSKI is forced to change one of the essential elements of the Order or if it cannot meet previously accepted special requirements of the Customer, TRAVELFACTORY will provide the Customer with clear and comprehensible means messages:

  • about the changes made and, if applicable, their consequences for the price of the trip/stay,
  • about the period within which the Customer must answer TRAVELSKI about their choice,
  • about the conditions for free cancellation in the event of refusal of the changes made.

The Client has the right to refuse the proposed change and to receive the full price paid within a maximum of fourteen (14) days after the cancellation of the Order. If the Customer accepts the changes to the trip, a new order confirmation will be sent to them with all necessary information.

6.2 Cancellation

If TRAVELSKI is forced to cancel the trip/stay, they will inform the Client of this as soon as possible. The Client will then receive all amounts paid back within a maximum period of fourteen (14) days. The Client can claim compensation that is at least equal to the penalty that the Client would have to pay if they themselves had cancelled the trip on this date (according to Article 5.1 above).

Travelski

Article 7: Exceptional and Inevitable Conditions

Exceptional and unavoidable circumstances are understood to mean a situation in which neither the Customer nor TRAVELSKI, the organizer or all service providers involved in the execution of the Order can influence, and whose consequences could not have been avoided even if all reasonable measures have been taken, which make the fulfilment of the obligations laid down in the agreement wholly or partly impossible. This concerns in particular: force majeure, weather, geographical, health or political conditions in the immediate vicinity of the destination that can endanger the life of the Customer. If exceptional and unavoidable circumstances arise, both TRAVELSKI and the Client may terminate the agreement free of charge.

Travelski

Article 8: Accommodation and Stay

8.1 Arrival / Departure

In an apartment hotel and winter sports resorts, the keys are usually handed over at the start of a stay on Saturday between 5 pm and 6 pm. They must be returned the following Saturday before 10 a.m. These times are confirmed on the accommodation travel documents, which you will receive by e-mail after confirmation of the Order and full payment of your stay. In hotels, rooms are generally available from 2 p.m. and must be vacated by 10 p.m. regardless of the Customer's arrival or departure time and the means of transport used. Permission of the service provider/accommodation holder is necessary in the event of a late arrival, i.e., if the arrival does not take place on the planned date and time. For this, the Customer must contact them directly. Their details, address, and telephone number are on the travel documents top left under the file number.

8.2 Deposit / Withdrawal statement

On arrival, a deposit (deposit) may be requested for the holiday residence, particularly for the rental of accommodation and ski equipment. The amount varies per service provider, apartment, or room. The deposit is a guarantee for the good condition of the accommodation or equipment. The Client must check the cleanliness of the apartment and make the inventory. Defects must be reported on the spot as quickly as possible to the service provider/accommodation holder or to the representative of the travel organizer. Failure to comply with these rules can influence the determination of any compensation. An admission statement must be completed together with the service provider upon arrival and before the planned or early departure. The deposit is returned by the service provider/accommodation holder at the end of the stay or at the latest one (1) month after departure, in accordance with the inspection statement and the inventory with deduction of any damage, as determined in the inspection statement of departure.

8.3 Rules and cleaning

The Client must take note of the rules of procedure posted in the holiday home and comply with them. During the stay, objects and personal property fall under the strict responsibility of the Customer. This also applies to their vehicle. TRAVELFACTORY can under no circumstances be held liable for theft at the holiday residence. The final cleaning is not included in the rent, and an amount can be deducted if the apartment is not cleaned properly.

8.4 Occupancy

The prices of accommodations are determined based on an occupancy that corresponds to the maximum capacity stated in the description. In a hotel, a single room generally has a single bed. There is a limited number of single rooms; often a supplement has to be paid for it. Double rooms have two beds or, less commonly, a double bed. Triple and quadruple rooms are often doubles with an extra bed. It is emphasized that a baby or child counts as a full person for the occupation. The upper bunk bed is not suitable for children under the age of six (French Decree No 95,949 of 25 August 1995). TRAVELSKI is not liable in case of non-compliance with the user instructions. In some accommodations, there is access to a mezzanine via a steep ladder; its use is not recommended for the elderly and young children. Some accommodations include a garden; this is often not closed. The Customer must in all cases take into account the maximum capacity of the type of accommodation they have reserved.

8.5 Descriptions and photos

The descriptions of the accommodations (area, location, types of beds, etc.) are given per type, which means that for two accommodations of the same type, there may be some non-material differences. It is emphasized that the photos in the descriptions represent the category and the degree of luxury of the relevant Services. TRAVELSKI guarantees in all cases the number of beds as well as the type (number of single and double beds, bunk beds, sofa bed). The descriptions specify the maximum number of beds for each type of accommodation. The use of an accommodation with the maximum number of people can lead to less comfort.

8.6 Classification of the accommodation

The number of stars assigned to the hotel or the accommodation rating specified in the description corresponds to the rating specified by the hotelier or established according to applicable French and European standards.

8.7 Local service

It is emphasized that special requests regarding the services available on-site (baby package, parking, special location, etc.) as well as requests for specific information regarding details of the equipment of the accommodation (e.g., size of the beds) should be addressed directly to the accommodation owner. Their telephone number is on the voucher that you received after confirmation and full payment of your stay. TRAVELSKI cannot be held liable for requests from the Customer to the accommodation holder/service provider on-site. The rates for the services that have to be paid on the spot (bed linen, baby kit, access to the swimming pool, internet, television, etc.) are given as an indication, and TRAVELSKI cannot be held liable for changes in the rates mentioned; only the prices of the Services that are paid for online are contractual. Special requests from the Customer concerning, in particular, the location of the accommodation (on one floor, next to another accommodation, etc.) will be passed on to the accommodation holder/service provider on-site, but TRAVELSKI cannot guarantee acceptance. TRAVELSKI can therefore not be held liable by the Customer if the request is not granted.

8.8 Construction work

It is emphasized that TRAVELSKI has no influence whatsoever on any construction work that may be carried out in the vicinity of the Customer's accommodation. TRAVELSKI consequently disclaims all liability for any inconvenience caused. TRAVELSKI will inform the Customer without undue delay of any construction work, within or near the accommodation, which may reasonably be considered to seriously impair the enjoyment of the trip/stay. Where required, the opportunity will be given to the Customer to transfer to alternative travel arrangements. Where this alternative changes one of the essential elements of the Order, the provision stated at Article 6.1 will apply. The Client may not obtain any compensation other than the refund of the ticket in the cases provided for in Article 6.1.

8.9 Animals

Animals are not accepted on board the Travelski Express. For the accommodations, the Customer must always inform the accommodation holder about the presence of an animal. Animals are not accepted everywhere. It is therefore advisable to check in the description of the accommodation or with our staff whether the presence of an animal is allowed before booking. If this is the case, a supplement must be paid to the accommodation holder on-site. In all cases, the number of animals per reservation is limited. Animals must be kept on a lead within the facilities. The size and weight of the animal must be passed on to the accommodation keeper. The pet passport must be taken to the holiday residence to be able to show it to the accommodation owner. TRAVELSKI cannot be held liable in the event of an animal refusing the accommodation owner. In all cases, animals weighing more than 15 kg/33 lb, fighting dogs (such as pit bulls), and guard or defense dogs in the French 1st and 2nd category (for more information: https://www.service-public.fr/particuliers/vosdroits/F1839) are prohibited in all accommodations offered by TRAVELSKI.

8.10 Ski lifts, ski equipment, ski school

Ski passes are strictly personal, inalienable, and non-transferable. The Customer must keep the pass with them during the entire route in each ski lift. Ski passes, ski equipment, and lessons are reserved by name. It is therefore necessary to state very precisely the names, first names, dates of birth, and the level of each Customer for the Services when booking. TRAVELSKI cannot be held liable for missing or incorrect information from the Customer. For a week-long stay with 7 nights, the ski pass includes 6 ski days. A ski pass always starts on Sunday morning and ends on Friday evening. A lost, stolen, or unused ski pass can under no circumstances be reimbursed by TRAVELSKI. This also applies to the rental of ski equipment. The rental of ski equipment starts on Sunday morning and ends on Friday evening; the Customer can collect the material on Saturday from 6 p.m. TRAVELSKI cannot be held liable in the event of theft or damage to the ski equipment. To prevent this kind of discontent, TRAVELSKI offers its clients suitable insurance policies (Article 10). On the ski slopes, the holder of the ski pass must comply with the municipal regulation on safety on ski slopes. He also becomes advised to take into account the "10 rules of conduct for users of the slopes," prepared by the International Ski Federation (FIS). The pass holder must observe the police regulations posted at the ski lift departure points, as well as the general conditions of use of a ski pass posted at the ski lift operator's sales points and which can be consulted on his website.

8.11 Catering at the ski resort (Meal Kits)

The 'Grocery Box Delivery Service' is delivered to the Customer on Saturday, the day of arrival, between 5.30 pm and 11 pm. The time, or even the day of delivery, may change depending on the weather and traffic conditions. A mobile phone number must be specified when booking. The Customer is called on their mobile phone by the delivery person who makes an appointment, usually at the entrance of the accommodation. In this respect, TRAVELSKI does not accept any liability if the mobile telephone number is not communicated by the Customer or if it is unreachable in the resort. If it is impossible to deliver the Grocery Box Delivery Service to the Customer because they are late or absent, TRAVELSKI disclaims any liability and informs the Customer that they will not receive compensation. If delivery does not take place due to TRAVELSKI, the 'Grocery Box Delivery Service' will be reimbursed to the Customer by transfer to their bank account after an investigation of the corresponding complaint. The composition of the menu is given as an indication and can be changed depending on the supply. Missing items are replaced by another item from the same family. The 'Grocery Box Delivery Service' can no longer be ordered after Wednesday at 11.59 pm of the week prior to departure for some ski resorts and Thursday at 11.59 pm for the other ski resorts (see detailed information on the website). Complaints regarding this service must be submitted within 24 hours of delivery.

Travelski

Article 9: Transport

When booking a package tour including transport, the Customer is subject to these GTC (General Terms and Conditions), while carriage is subject to the carrier's conditions of carriage. The Customer is obligated to comply with the carrier's conditions of carriage that are in effect at the time of booking and are available online on the carrier's website.

There are luggage restrictions in place, which are indicated on the ticket. The ticket is only valid for the person whose name is stated on it.

TRAVELSKI cannot be held responsible if the Customer fails to check-in at the departure point of their holiday. This includes instances where the Customer is delayed, experiences a delay in pre-trip arrangements that are not part of the Services, or fails to present the necessary identification and/or proof of compliance with health requirements for their journey.

Customers are advised to review their ticket for the recommended arrival time and ensure they allocate sufficient time to pass through security and passport control.

Travelski
