General Terms and Conditions

Claudia and Sven Jakobs, hereinafter "Landlords", Am Park 2a, 29646 Bispingen, are active as the owners and Landlords of the "Bispinger Heidezauber" cottages.

1.  Trip registration/accommodation contract

With your booking notification you are entering a binding accommodation contract with the Landlords. The accommodation contract is deemed to have been concluded once the cottage has been accepted via a booking confirmation or - if a written acceptance was not possible due to time constraints - also verbally or by phone.

2. Provision of cottages 

Booked cottages will be available to you upon the day of arrival from 16:00 (cottage Weissdorn) or 17.00 (cottage Hartriegel). Unless a later arrival time has been expressly agreed, the Landlords reserve the right to make booked cottages, available to others after 18:00. Claims for damages cannot be asserted if in an exceptional case the provision of the booked cottages does not proceed by 16:00 or 17:00 respectively. You will be asked to leave the cottages no later than 10:00 (cottage Weißdorn) or not later than 11:00 (cottage Hartriegel) on the day of departure. The Landlords are entitled to charge additional fees for late departures.

3. Travel cancellation insurance

No travel cancellation insurance is included in the rental price. The Landlords recommend timely conclusion of such insurance.

Receipt of the written rescission notice by the Landlords is decisive for meeting the deadlines.

In the event of your rescission, the Landlords may require flat-rate cancellation fees, whereby saved expenses and alternate occupancy of the property will be taken into account.

With the customer's rescission, the following conditions apply:

- For a rescission up to the 60th day before the beginning of occupancy, 50 euros.

- In the case of rescission from the 59th to the 30th day before the beginning of occupancy 50% of the total price.

- If you do not arrive or cancel after beginning the trip, the full billed amount will be due or cannot be refunded.

5.2. Claims and rights arising from the agreements concluded in the accommodation contract may only be transferred to third parties with the consent of the Landlords. If you assure alternative occupancy for the confirmed accomodation period, the Landlords will charge a processing fee of 25 euros for expenses. If the Landlords manage to otherwise occupy the property in the contract period, the fee for expenses will be in the amount of 50 euros.

6. Rescission by the Landlords

The Landlords can terminate the contract after the beginning of occupancy if behavior in violation of the contract is present despite warning (this can also be undertaken verbally), resulting in immediate, justified cancellation of the contract. This particularly applies in the case of intentional or negligent damage to the land, the booked cottages, and the inventory. If the Landlords cancel, they are entitled to claim the total price. They will nonetheless factor in the value of saved expenses, as well as those benefits that they gain from alternative occupancy of the property.

7. Unused services

If you do not use contractual services, in particular as a result of late arrival or early departure due to illness, or for other reasons which the Landlords are not or not fully responsible for, you will have no entitlement to a pro-rata refund.
