Rates and Group discounts
Basic rates are prices per person with 2 persons
sharing double or twin rooms; bags transfers included; bike rental not included
in basic rate.
Solo all-in prices are prices for single travellers
including single room supplement; bags transfers included; bike rental not
Group discounts are applicable only on the
basic rates p.p. with 2 persons sharing room, but not
on supplements for single rooms, extra nights, nor on bike rental or any
other supplements. Group discounts apply to parties and
families of 3 to 8 persons.
Group discounts are indicated in a percentage of the basic rate and
apply to every member of the party.
The applicable discount appliesto
payments that are made for the whole party
with a maximum of three different credit cards.
For payments with 1 credit cards no administrative supplement will be charged.
For payments with 2 credit cards an administrative supplement of € 20 will
be charged to the second credit card.
For payments with 3 credit cards an administrative supplement of € 20 will
be charged to the second and to the third credit card.
For payments with 4 or more credit cards no groups discounts will apply.
Moreover, cancelation of just one or more
persons of the group will affect the total group-discount applicable (i.e.
lower substantially for all the remaining members of the party).
So, if one of more persons of the group,
originally booking together, have to cancel their trip we are not going
to ask the remaining members of the party to pay extra for the difference.
For this reason cancelation a trip (booked-with-group-discount) by one or
more members of the party will cause an extra withholding (to the persons
cancelation) relative to the new (i.e. lower) applicable discount percentage
applicable to the remaining members of the party. The withholding will be
a percentage of the basic rate to be settled with the refund due by La Ligne
Example: 5 persons book a trip with group
discount of 12%.
Basic rate p.p. €1000, with group discount € 880. Total paid (basic
rates only): 5x 880 = 4400.
2 persons cancel their participation. Remaining members : 3, which will
cause a new discount of 8%.
New price for the remaining members 3 x 1000 minus 8%= 3 x 920 = 2760
The remaining members had already paid 3 x 880 = 2640. Rests still to be
€120 will be hold in and settled with the cancellation refund due by La
Ligne Verte to the persons cancelation.
As soon as we have received authorization
for the payment of your deposit we will send you by email a confirmation
of your reservation and the list of hotels (with phone numbers) of your
We suggest you take an insurance for costs of cancelation.
