If accommodation is desired for only one person, the organizer has the right to charge an additional fee for the single room, regardless of whether this takes place after the contract is made or if it arises as a consequence of a subsequent unpredicted event, e.g. that another traveller is ill.

Such a provision shall be clearly shown in the organizer’s booking terms.

 

1.3.3. If the participant does not make payment in accordance with the contract, the organizer has the right to annul the contract.

1.3.4. In the case of short-term bookings (starting four weeks before the start of the event), the entire participant fee is due immediately.

2. Changes in the contract

 

2.1. Price changes

 

2.1.1. If cost increases occur for the organizer after the contract in accordance with item 1.3 has become binding for the parties, the organizer may raise the price of the event by an amount corresponding to the cost increases if these are due to:

 

  • Changes in transport costs, including fuel prices,

  • Changes in taxes, customs duties or fees or fees for certain services, such as airport, harbour, landing and take-off fees or changes in the rates of exchange used in calculating the price for the package.

 

2.1.2. In such cases, the price can be raised by an amount corresponding to the cost increase to which the organizer is subjected in order to fulfil the contract. If e.g. the costs, in accordance with item are increased by €10 (euro) for each participant, the price can be increased by the same amount.

 

2.1.3. The right to raise the price in accordance with the above exists only if the cost increase exceeds €10 (euro).

 

2.1.4. The price must not be raised during the last 20 days before the agreed date of departure. The organizer shall notify the participant of the price changes as soon as possible.

 

2.1.5. In a corresponding manner, the price of the journey shall be reduced if the organizer’s costs decrease for the same reasons as indicated above earlier than 20 days before the agreed date of departure. In the event of a cost reduction, the price shall be reduced only if the cost reduction exceeds €10 (euro).

 

2.2. Transfer of the package

 

2.2.1. The participant is entitled to transfer the package to another person. However, it is a condition that the person to whom the package is transferred fulfils the necessary conditions and requirements indicated by the organizer for participation in the package. The right to transfer the package can in whole or in part be limited by the organizer if the transfer is not possible owing to the terms stated by a subcontractor. If e.g. an air ticket according to the terms of the airline company cannot be transferred, the transfer of the package means that the participant will not receive a refund of the air ticket and that the person to whom the package is transferred must buy a new air ticket. The limitations in the right to transfer the package shall always be clearly shown in the contract.

 

2.2.2. The participant and the person to whom the package is transferred shall be jointly and severally responsible for the amount which remains to be paid for the package and for all the extra costs which have been incurred due to the transfer. In addition, the organizer is entitled to reasonable compensation for the extra work involved in the transfer.

 

2.3. Changes after the contract is concluded

 

2.3.1. Changes before departure at the request of the participant

 

2.3.1.1. For changes after the contract is concluded regarding the date of the tour, its destination, hotel, tour participants etc, the organizer has the right, in addition to payment for the actual costs which the changes involve, to charge an administration fee.

 

2.3.1.2. After the contract is binding, it is often not possible to make changes in the agreed services. This may apply for e.g. cruises, air tickets and hotel rooms, and shall be indicated in the contract. Therefore, in the event of a change, the participant does not have the right to a refund of that part of the price for the package which consists of the costs for these services.

 

2.3.2. The organizer’s changes or cancellation before departure

 

2.3.2.1. If the organizer is forced to cancel the journey or if it cannot be carried out as agreed, the participant shall be informed of this as soon as possible.

 

2.3.2.2. This does not however apply in the case of changes or deviations which can be considered to be of minor importance for the participant.

2.3.2.4. If the changes made by the organizer in the contract are significant, or if the tour is cancelled without the participant being the reason for this, he/she can:

 

2.3.2.5. annul the contract and recover the whole amount which he/she has paid according to the contract, or

 

  • Participate in another package tour, if the organizer can offer such.

 

  • The participant shall, within reasonable time after having received a message that the tour is altered or cancelled, notify the organizer of his/her choice.

 

2.3.2.6. If the compensation tour has a lower value than the original package tour, the organizer shall pay back the traveller for the difference in the price.

2.3.3.2. For certain package tours, it can, because of their special character, be difficult to predict the exact procedure. Changes in natural conditions, road changes, political events etc can mean that the organizer is forced to make changes in the tour plan. In such an event, the organizer shall if possible offer a compensation arrangement. If the change means a worsening for the participant, he/she may be entitled to damages and/or a price reduction.

 

2.3.3.3. If the changes in the agreed services as indicated in 2.3.3.1 or 2.3.3.2 are due to circumstances beyond the control of the organizer, which he could not reasonably have anticipated when the contract was entered into, and the consequences of which he could not reasonably have avoided or overcome, the participant shall not be entitled to damages. If the changes are due to a subcontractor which the organizer has engaged, the organizer shall be free from the liability to pay damages only if this is due to a circumstance beyond the control of the sub-contractor.
