An acknowledgement of receipt email is sent to the Customer. It summarises the contract offer, the reserved services, the prices, the total amount of the order, the terms and conditions of sale relating to the selected tariff, accepted by the Customer, and the date of the reservation made.
3.4. Formation of the reservation :
The reservation is deemed to have been made upon confirmation of the reservation or upon online prepayment by credit card.
ARTICLE 4: PRICES
1. The prices relating to the reservation of the services are indicated on the site and confirmed at the time of the reservation.
2. The prices indicated are per room for the number of person(s) and the date selected.
3. 3. Prices are confirmed to the Customer in the Hotel's commercial currency, including VAT, and are only valid for the period indicated on the website.
4. All reservations are payable in the local currency of the Hotel, unless otherwise specified on site.
5. Unless otherwise mentioned on the site, additional services (breakfast, access to the Spa...) are not included in the price and are displayed separately.
6. The tourist tax, shown on the rates page, is to be paid directly at the hotel.
7. The prices take into account the VAT applicable on the day of the order. Any change in the applicable VAT rate will automatically be reflected in the prices indicated on the date of the invoice.
8. Likewise, any modification or introduction of new legal or regulatory taxes imposed by the competent authorities will automatically be reflected in the prices indicated on the date of the invoice.
9. Conversion into foreign currency is given for information purposes only and is not contractual. Only the currency confirmed at the time of booking is guaranteed (if this currency is different from the one used at the Hotel, any exchange costs will be charged to the Customer).
10. If a rate implies that payment is made at the Hotel at the time of arrival or departure of your stay and the Customer's currency is not the same as that of the Hotel, the rate debited by the Hotel may be different from the one communicated at the time of booking, taking into account the possible change in exchange rates between the date of booking and the dates of stay at the Hotel.
ARTICLE 5: PAYMENT :
1. The Customer communicates his bank details as a guarantee of the reservation, except for special conditions or rates, by credit or private bank card (Visa, Mastercard, American Express, Diners Club...) by indicating directly, in the area provided for this purpose (input secured by SSL encryption), the card number, its validity date (the bank card must be valid at the time of the stay) and the visual cryptogram. He/she must come to the Hotel with the credit card that enabled him/her to guarantee the reservation or to make the prepayment. The Hotel may ask the guest to show proof of identity in order to prevent credit card fraud.
2. Payment is debited at the Hotel during your stay, except in the case of special conditions or rates where payment is debited at the time of booking (online prepayment on some rates). This prepayment is referred to as a deposit. In the case of a rate that is not prepaid online, the Hotel will ask the Customer, upon arrival, for a security deposit or authorisation to debit the credit card, in order to guarantee payment of the sums corresponding to the services consumed on site.
3. Unless the stay is prepaid, regardless of the reservation channel used by the Customer, the Hotel reserves the right to pre-authorise the credit card before the date of arrival and no later than the day of arrival. In the event of rejection, the Hotel may cancel the reservation.
It is understood that the request for pre-authorisation is not an immediate debit but corresponds to a reserve for later payment, authorised by the Customer's bank.
In some cases, however, the pre-authorisation may appear as a pending debit on the bank account associated with the card used. In rare cases, the authorisation request may result in a debit by the Customer's bank before the actual debit is made. In this case, the balance will be automatically credited back to the Customer's account by the bank and may appear as a refund.
The amount of the pre-authorisation corresponds to the value of the reservation amount. It is determined by the establishment according to the number of people and the number of nights booked.
4. In the event of no show (reservation not cancelled - Customer not present) of a reservation guaranteed by credit card, the Hotel will debit the Customer, as a lump sum compensation, the amount of the first night on the credit card that was given as a guarantee of the reservation and any additional nights of the reservation will be cancelled without charge unless otherwise indicated in the sales conditions of the reserved rate. By making a reservation, the Customer expressly authorises the Hotel to proceed with the payment of the fixed compensation.
5. At the time of prepayment, the amount that is debited at the time of booking includes: the price of accommodation, taxes linked to the accommodation, the price of food if breakfast is chosen, taxes linked to food and any other additional services selected by the Client.
6. In the case of a fare subject to online prepayment, the amount paid in advance, which is the deposit, is debited at the time of booking.
ARTICLE 6: CANCELLATION OR MODIFICATION BY THE CUSTOMER'S FAULT
1. In accordance with Article L 121-21, 12° of the French Consumer Code, the Customer does not have the right of withdrawal provided for in Article L 121-21 of the French Consumer Code.
2. The conditions of sale of the reserved fare specify the terms and conditions for cancelling and/or modifying the reservation.
3. Reservations with prepayment will not be subject to any modification and/or cancellation. No refunds will be made for advance payments made as deposits. In this case, it is mentioned in the conditions of sale of the tariff.
4. When the conditions of sale of the reserved fare allow it, the cancellation or modification of the reservation can be made directly with the Hotel, whose telephone details are specified on the confirmation of the reservation sent by e-mail.
5. In case of interruption of the stay, the entire agreed price will be collected. In case of reservation with prepayment, no refund will be granted.
6. Unless expressly stated otherwise, the Client must leave the room before 12.00 noon on the day of the end of the reservation. Failure to do so will result in an additional night's stay being charged.
7. All reservations are nominative and can in no case be transferred to a third party, either free of charge or for a consideration.
ARTICLE 7: RELOCATION :
In the event of an exceptional event or the impossibility of making the reserved room available to the Customer or in the event of force majeure, the Hotel reserves the right to arrange for the Customer to be accommodated in a hotel of an equivalent category for services of the same nature and subject to having informed the Customer in advance. Any additional cost of the room, transport between the two hotels and a telephone call shall remain the responsibility of the hotel initially booked.
ARTICLE 8: STAY AT THE HOTEL :
1. In application of the regulations in force in France, the Customer will be asked to fill out a police form upon arrival at the Hotel. To do so, the Customer will be asked to show proof of identity in order to check whether or not he/she must complete the policy form.
2. The Customer must comply with the Hotel's Internal Regulations available at the Hotel Reception. In the event of non-compliance with these Regulations, the Hotel shall be obliged to invite the Customer to leave the Hotel without any compensation and/or without any refund if a payment has already been made. If no payment has yet been made, the Customer must pay the full price of the stay (nights consumed plus nights booked but not yet consumed) before leaving the establishment.
3. The Victoria Palace Hôtel offers free WIFI access. The Customer undertakes not to use its computer resources for purposes of reproduction, representation, making available or communication to the public of any goods protected by copyright or a related right without the authorisation of the holders of these rights or in violation of their rights.
ARTICLE 9: EXCLUSIONS OF LIABILITY :
The photographs on the site are not contractual. Although the Hotel endeavours to ensure that the photographs, graphic representations and texts reproduced to illustrate the Hotel give as accurate an overview as possible of the accommodation services offered, variations may occur, in particular due to a change of furniture or possible renovations.
