I. General Conditions (AGB)
We are pleased to know that you want to spend your holiday in Boppard
On order to avoid misunderstanding and difficulty, we ask kindly to read the following. Thank you!
1. Rights and commitments taken from the contracts pertaining to guest accommodation and that of the negotiation of special offers
The Tourist Information (TI) centre in Boppard is only entitled to negotiate on behalf of the concerns offering accommodation and those serving them. Contracts are arranged between those entiled to perform their funcationin their name and on their account. The TI is solely a mediator. Its contracting partner is its host.
2. The contract pertaining to taking in guests
a) The contract is considered as concluded when a room I booked or promised or, should a promise be no more valid for time reasons, already put ready for occupation.
b) The conclusion of the said contract of acceptance of a guest commits the contracted partner to fulfil the agreed contract, regardless of how long the contract has been concluded.
c) The host as contracted party is obliged to conform with the legal regulations relating to the accommodation of guests.
d) The guest for his part is legally required in the case where he/she does not take advantage of the contracted agreement to pay the agreed price or the usual price previously set down in this arrangement. The host will deduct what he has not spent in the agreement- This legally allows the host to charge 80% of the agreed amount for an overnight stay with breakfast in the case of full board. The same is valid in the case of apartment contracts where 60% may be charged (maximum 90%) in the case where accommodation services (overnight stay) are not claimed.
e) The host is morally obliged not to keep back rooms, which have not been booked so as to be able to hire them out at future date, thus, where possible, avoiding cancellations.
f) The guest is obliged to pay for the room as contractually agreed until such time as the room is hired out for use by another guest
In their own interests, we recommend that guests insure themselves against the possibility of sudden cancellation. Forms are available at the Boppard Tourist Information Office.
3. Conditions of payment
In the case where rooms and accommodation is negotiated by the TI, the terms of payment are regulated by those (hotel etc.) providing the accommodation. Where there are special offers or all-in-one offers for accommodation and services, the conditions governing terms of payment appearing in the booking are valid.
4. Guarantees and Liability
We undertake the proper management of your request and their passing on to the appropriate bodies. In this, the TI Boppard is only liable in the case of gross negligence or deliberate for the incidence of natural catastrophe, strikes or communication disturbances connected with the German Telekom. In addition, the TI is not responsible for mistakes or offence(s) on the part of the businesses (hotels etc.) their service personnel or others recommended by it. For the settlement of such as disputes arising from such issuses, the jurisdiction is in Koblenz.
5. To be noted in every case:
a) After bookings and reservations have been confirmed, it is important to check carefully whether the documents are correct and comply with what has been earlier agreed upon. Should there be clear discrepancies, these should be reported within seven days at the latest after having received confirmation.
b) Claims against the TI Boppard, the party offering accommodation, service personnel or those recommending accommodation and servives are deemed invalid after one year dating from the contracted commencement of the stay.
In these matters of regulation, common sense has first priority. We are, after all, a holiday resort, wich is at pains to please its guests, and for that reason we are very glad to welcome you. We sincerely hope that your holiday in Boppard will be a pleasant one.
We recommend taking out travel cancellation insurance for all bookings.
