COVID-19 Cancellation Protection
For bookings made after 11 October, 2020.
Last updated 11 October, 2020.
The Guest may cancel their reservation up to 12 weeks before their arrival date if Governmental travel restrictions have been put in place relating to COVID-19 that would prevent the Guest from travelling to the property. A credit note will be issued by Snow Lodge for the full amount paid by the Guest that is valid for use at the same property for 27 months from the Guests scheduled date of arrival. In this case, only a credit note will be issued, the Guest will not be entitled to a refund of their reservation.
Where the person in whose name the booking is made is a resident of metropolitan France, Switzerland, Belgium, Netherlands or Luxembourg the Guest may cancel their booking up to the day before their scheduled day of arrival if one or more of the following restrictions below applies. In this case a credit note will be issued by Snow Lodge for the full amount paid by the Guest that is valid at the same property for 27 months from the Guests scheduled date of arrival. In this case, only a credit note will be issued, the Guest will not be entitled to a refund of their reservation. Guests residing in countries other than those appearing in the above-mentioned list will not be able to benefit from this cancellation.
The government of the country of residence of the person in whose name the booking is made puts in place any of the following:
- advises against all non essential travel to France
- introduces local lockdown measures preventing the Guest from leaving their local area
- closes the countries border to all foreign travel
- imposes a mandatory quarantine period on people returning from France. (This does not include a quarantine period on return due to a positive COVID test.)
Or if any of the following applies:
- The Guest is a non-French resident and the French border is closed
- The Guest is a non-French resident and The French National or Local Government introduces obligatory quarantine measures for guests arriving into France or the resort where the Guest has booked their stay
- French National or Local Government has introduced local or general lockdown measures which result in the Owner being unable to operate as a business
If the Government Restrictions imposed, or the travel advice given by the French Government, or the Guests home/return country’s Government, changes part way through the Guests stay forcing the Guest to cut their stay short, a credit note or refund for any part of the Guests stay will not be issued. The Guest will need to claim on their travel insurance.
Concerns about future government restrictions being applied, a disinclination to travel because of COVID-19, or if the Guests travel arrangements (e.g flight, ferry or tunnel crossing, but not exclusive to) are cancelled for any reason other than those listed above then no refunds or credit vouchers will be issued and there will be no compensation payment.
If the Guests are showing signs or symptoms of COVID-19 or test positive for COVID-19, provided that Snow Lodge is “open for business” and can fulfill their contractual obligations, then Snow Lodge accepts no liability or responsibility to issue refunds or credit notes and will not pay any other compensation. The Guest will need to make a claim on their travel insurance.
To cancel their reservation and ask for a credit note the Guest must provide a link to an official government web site of the country that has applied the restriction where the justification for the Guests claim is clearly stated.
The Guest should take out travel insurance to cover medical situations related to COVID-19. If the Guest wishes to make a claim on their travel insurance then the Owner will supply any supporting documentation required.
