When does the reservation have to be paid?
On arrival at the hotel or apartments.
Via Internet, Formenterahotelsguide.com will request a deposit, which is usually 10% of the total amount for the booking, although this may vary according to the hotel concerned. The minimum requested always covers one night’s stay. This transaction will be made in the most secure and safe conditions possible, via a virtual POS. The system will forward you by e-mail an accommodation voucher, indicating your reservation details, the deposit paid, and the outstanding balance to be settled on arrival at your accommodation.
When will the deposit be charged against the credit card?
This depends on the country in question. It may take up to 5 days for the charge to be reflected on your credit card account.
The transaction will be made in EUROS, regardless of the client’s country of origin or accommodation selected.
Arrival & departure from the accommodation
According to international practice, the hotel room or apartment will be available from midday on the day of arrival. However in some hotels and apartments, the rooms are not vacated until midday, in which case they will need to be cleaned, and may not therefore be available until 14.00h. Please bear this in mind, should you plan to arrive before midday. INCLUDED IN YOUR RESERVATION: The services listed according to the accommodation details selected at the time of booking, Spanish VAT (IVA) included.
You will also be expected to vacate your room at midday on departure day. This is particularly important to note if you have a late night flight, and you intend leaving the accommodation during the evening, or after midnight. If you arrive at the accommodation in the early hours of the morning and occupy your room straight away, this counts as your first night. On departure day however, you may have to wait a long period before leaving for the airport. Most hotels and apartments will allow you to keep on your room after midday, paying the corresponding supplement, but this will only be possible when rooms are available. In the event that it is not possible to keep on your room, there are usually facilities available for luggage storage until your departure, and a room where you may shower and change, however we suggest you check at the reception desk when you arrive.
Alternatively, you may of course book an extra night’s accommodation, which will allow you to use your room right up until your departure.
