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 voucher, 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 voucher, top left under the file number.
8.2 Deposit / Withdrawal statement
On arrival a deposit (deposit) may be requested for the holiday residence, in particular 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 this.

The final cleaning is not included in the rent and an amount can be deducted if the apartment is not cleaned properly.
The prices of accommodations are determined on the basis of an occupancy that corresponds to the maximum capacity stated on 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). TRAVELFACTORY 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 / this is often not closed. The Customer must in all cases take into account the maximum capacity of the type of accommodation that he has reserved.

It is emphasized that the photos in the descriptions represent the category and the degree of luxury of the relevant Services. TRAVELFACTORY 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.
