If the change occurs before the advance payment and/or confirmation of the reservation by the guest, the agency notifies the guest of the price change.
For guests who have paid an advance for a particular reservation, the agency guarantees the price of accommodation stated in the calculation on the basis of which they paid the amount of the advance.

In this case, the guest has the right to cancel the reservation if the price increase is more than 10% of the price from the reservation confirmation with the right to a refund of the amount paid so far (less bank charges), but without the right to any other fees or compensation.
The exchange rate at which the price was formed is stated in the reservation confirmation.1
