When booking online on Cimalpes.ski, we systematically offer as an option the subscription to the cancellation insurance policy. This insurance is available for any rental of €10'000 (VAT included) per week or less. This insurance applies to both the cancellation or interruption of a stay. The cost of the insurance is 3% of the public rental price (TTC).
For detailed information, please contact our ski holiday experts.
To be valid, the booking must come with all the items mentioned below:
The rental cost balance must be paid no later than one month before the start of the stay in the rented accommodation.
If the balance remains unpaid within one month before the arrival date, the agency will have the rights to cancel the reservation. In that case, the deposit will be refunded if the property has a new booking on the same period and under the same rate.
The rental cost must be paid in full, in a single payment, on the day the booking is made if the accommodation is booked one month or less before the start date of the stay.
All our rates are in euros including taxes, rent, filing fees, and rental charges.
The lessee undertakes to accept the rented premises on the dates and times established in the contract.
The keys will be given after the payment of deposit, holiday tax and the payment of additional bookings.
If the deposit is said to be cashed-in on the contract, it will be paid at the same moment as the balance, one month before arrival.
Rental cost does not include:
The agency communicates its rental offers by all means and, if necessary, by all types of advertising.
The rental contract is then only drawn up after confirmation of the rental by the agency, and will take place within the month when the part payment is paid. After this time, if the agency has not confirmed the rental, it will return the part payment immediately, and the booking will be considered as null and void.
In the event of a cancellation supported by a reason, should the premises be re-rented, the paid amount will be returned to the tenant who cannot honour his/her contract. Stays begun and then shortened or interrupted by the tenant do not entitle the latter to any refunds.
Should the agency be obliged to cancel the stay in the building planned, due to factors caused by third-parties or external circumstances, it shall supply, if possible, accommodation of the same category or of a higher category, without any additional invoicing. If the agency is unable to do so, it undertakes to refund immediately the totality of the sum paid.
Cancellation insurance can be contracted for the stay, as an extra fee.
All objects or personal effects belonging to the tenant, relay of the own responsibility of this one.
The tenant is responsible for all damages he has caused. The tenant will thus have to make sure an insurance company against risks of theft, fire, broken glass and water damage, and more generally both for all of its tenant's risks than for the let furniture, as well as for the appeals of the neighbors, and to prove the whole with first request of the owner or his(her) representative. As a consequence, these disclaim all liability for the appeal which their insurance company could exercise against the taker in case of disaster.
The guarantee deposit is paid to settle the cost of any damage that might have been incurred by the rented real estate property or by items of furniture or other items furnishing the rented premises, and to settle the various expenses.
This deposit will be kept until the departure of the client and the inventory is validated. It can be cashed in.
The deposit will be made at the latest the day of arrival of the client.
This sum will be blocked and returned within 15 days following the customer’s departure, once the amount has been deducted for any objects replaced, repair costs, additional housekeeping and extra food and drink consumed.
Should the guarantee deposit prove insufficient, the lessee undertakes to complete the sum if so requested.
An extra to 10% (to the price before tax) will be added on caretaker services (taxi and helicopter transfers, cleaning….). The price re-invoiced by Cimalpes of some services with a reduced VAT rate will necessarily lead to a change to standard VAT rate*. Services subjected to outlays excepted.
* As of January 1st 2014, the standard VAT rate is of 20%.
Some additional services subjected to a reduced VAT rate are supplied to you like outlays: being intermediate, Cimalpes is appointed by his customer to buy from a reduced VAT rate of the product or the service (ski passes, ski lessons ESF) with the concerned company. It is about a refund of outlays for others and the intermediary Cimalpes does not have to subject to the VAT the sums which have been paid. Cimalpes does not practice mark-up and the service is bought at the public price shown in the cash-desk of providers.
Each tenant must present to the agency and will be led to the accommodation they have rented.
Duration of stay is mentioned in the contract. The lessee cannot in any way or manner, authorize himself a late departure or a prolongation of stay, approval of agency excepted, with and extra fee, that will be fixed at a pro rata rate of the stay.
