The lessor shall put at the disposal of the vacation maker, for recreational purposes, i.e. not for permanent residence, a vacation residence of the type agreed upon, for the agreed upon period and the agreed upon price.
The lessor is obliged to provide the holiday maker in advance with the written information on the basis of which this agreement is also concluded.

When entering into the agreement, the holiday maker is expected to have taken note of that written information. The lessor shall always inform the holiday maker of any changes therein in writing through this website.
If the information deviates substantially from the information provided at the conclusion of the agreement, then the holiday maker shall be entitled to cancel the agreement without any costs. In case of unforeseen circumstances, closed park facilities are not considered as substantially deviating information.
In the event that, due to unforeseen circumstances, the swimming pool and/or indoor play hall at vacation park de Krim is closed for at least half of the rental period, a compensation of up to 3% of the rental sum may be given on request.
The holiday maker has the obligation to comply with the agreement and related information. He shall see to it that fellow holiday maker(s) and/or third party/parties visiting him and/or staying with him observe the agreement and the information belonging thereto.
In the event that the provisions of the agreement and/or the accompanying information conflict with the general conditions, the general conditions shall prevail.

The agreement starts at the moment of confirmation of the reservation by the lessor. The agreement ends by operation of law after the expiration of the agreed period, without notice of termination being required.

Article 4: Price and price changes
The price is agreed on the basis of the rates valid at that time, which are determined by the Lessor.
In the event that after determination of the agreed price, because of an increase of the expenses on the side of the lessor, additional costs arise as a consequence of a change in charges and/or levies, which are directly related to the vacation residence or the holiday maker, then these may be passed on to the holiday maker, also after the conclusion of the agreement.

Article 5: Tourist tax and deposit

Article 6: Payment
The holiday maker must make payments in euros in accordance with the agreed conditions.
The holiday maker owes the lessor a down payment of 30% of the total rental sum including deposit and tourist tax, to be paid within 7 days after receipt of the confirmation, after which the booking is final. The remaining 70% of the total rental sum must be paid no later than 8 weeks before the start of the rental period.
If the holiday maker, despite prior written demand for payment, does not or not adequately fulfil his payment obligation within a period of two weeks after the written demand, the lessor shall be entitled to dissolve the agreement with immediate effect, without prejudice to the right of the lessor to full payment of the agreed price.

If the lessor wishes to bring a dispute before the Disputes Committee, he must ask the holiday maker to decide within five weeks whether or not he wishes to come to the Disputes Committee. The lessor must thereby announce that he will consider himself free to bring the dispute before the court after the aforementioned period has expired. In those places where the conditions speak of Disputes Committee, a dispute can be submitted to the court. If the holiday maker has submitted the dispute to the Disputes Committee, the lessor shall be bound by this choice.
    For the handling of disputes, please refer to the Regulations of the Recreation Disputes Committee. The Disputes Committee is not authorized to handle a dispute that relates to illness, injury, death or the non-payment of an invoice that is not based on a material complaint.
