Inaccurate or discrepant notices issued three days after receipt of booking confirmation will no longer be taken into account. In particular, delayed reporting of errors or deviations does not entitle the client to withdraw from the contract.
4. Villsy generally charges clients a service fee for commercial services. If a service charge is incurred for the booking, this is included in the displayed holiday accommodation price and is also shown separately on the quotation on the website, the booking process and the invoice. In case of cancellation or rebooking, the service fee will not be refunded.

Any applicable changes in the booking procedure up to the departure (e.g. booking of additional services or partial cancellations) shall have no effect on the shortening of the prenotification period, they shall generate a new invoice which includes the pre-notification. Any charges which arise in case of dishonour, chargeback, and internal handling, shall be borne by the traveller, provided that the dishonour or chargeback was not caused by Villsy.

III. Withdrawal of the traveller / rebooking

2. The rebooking of the reserved and confirmed booking is only possible by withdrawing from the reserved booking and a simultaneously new booking of another journey, unless the travel agency has separate regulations for these cases. Separate regulations are regulated with travel agency terms and conditions. Potential charges for rebooking or payable part travel compensations in case of rebooking comply with the conditions of the respective travel agency. Villsy is authorized to charge the client all costs and an additional handling fee of 25,00 Euro per person concerning the withdrawal asserted to Villsy from another side.

1. Modifications or variations of single travel services from the content of the travel contract agreed upon, that become necessary after completing the contract and are not effectuated by Villsy or the travel agency against good faith, are only allowed, if they are negligible and do not affect the entire layout of the journey.

In this case Villsy informs the traveller immediately, at least 21 days prior to departure. Increase in price is illegitimate beyond this date.
V. Liability of Villsy
1. Basically, Villsy is solely operating as mediator between the client and the travel agency and acts on behalf and for account of the travel agency. In this case, Villsy is not liable for the services to be generated by the travel agency towards the client. If Villsy exceptionally operates journeys itself, the liability of Villsy is determined by the Villsy tour operator terms and conditions.

The same applies to further information given on the website and issued by third parties.

Basically, Villsy is only liable within this contract in case of absence of warranted characteristics, breach of main duties to indemnify and other cases of breach of compulsory treaty indemnity except from intention and culpable negligence.

Villsy is insofar not liable.
