Validity of agreed rate

The agreed rates are binding on both parties.

FHA will document these cases carefully and communicate the changes to the customer a minimum of 1 month before they are implemented.

For cancellations of more than 20% of the number of nights booked, which means that the original discount period is not maintained, FHA reserves the right to adjust the daily prices for the entire period of accommodation.

The pre-authorisation is used to cover incidental items including (but not limited to) breaches of terms and conditions, breakages, damages to the apartment or cleaning above the normal level due to the apartment being left in an unacceptable state of cleanliness. The deposit will be released at the time of check-out when the apartment has been checked and is in good condition. Please be advised that the time it takes to release the deposit depends on the guest’s bank.
