Payment and terms of carriage
GENERAL TERMS AND CONDITIONS
These general terms and conditions apply between the Tourism Authority of the Municipality of Karlstad (hereinafter, TV) and you who directly or indirectly enter into agreements with TV, as indicated in the confirmation. Such an agreement can relate to accommodations, transport, purchase of other products or services, or a combination of these.
Who is responsible?The organiser responsible is the Tourism Authority of the Municipality of Karlstad (TV) 651 84 Karlstad, Telephone +46 (0)54-540 24 70, Corp. ID No. 212000-1850. Special terms and conditions may apply for regularly scheduled means of transportation. The booking location is required to ensure that you are made aware of these at the time of booking, that you receive the proper documents of transport, and that you are informed of all significant changes that relate to your booking. If the products are booked through a retailer, that retailer is obligated to ensure that the customer complies with the terms and payment routines of the organiser.
When will my booking become binding?The booking applies to both TV and you as soon as TV has confirmed the booking.
What, when and who should I pay?You are required to pay the published price for the booking subject to the addition or the deduction of such changes of taxes and transport expenses that occurred after the printing of the programme. The time and recipient of the payment are indicated in the Special Terms and Conditions.
Credit and debit card paymentsYou may use cards that are linked to MasterCard or VISA. The entire amount shall be paid immediately.
Security”3 D Secure” (Verified by VISA & MasterCard SecureCode) is a security technology that VISA & MasterCard have agreed on for the verification of the cardholder in the event of e-commerce. We have fully integrated this technology in our system. This means that when the technology is utilised, an immediate question is electronically sent regarding whether there is a code for the card. The answer in most cases will be negative. However, if the card has a 3 D Secure code, the purchaser is referred to the card-issuing bank, in order to give his or her personal code, in order to continue.
What rules apply in the event I wish to cancel?You can cancel through the website, www.destinationvarmland.se or phone +46 (0)54-540 24 70 and give your booking number. Your cancellation will not be considered if it is directed to anyone else, or is sent directly to the facility. Please check the booking confirmation for additional information. Your cancellation will not be binding until you have received written (e-mail) confirmation of your cancellation from us. In the event of cancellation, fees shall be applied according to the Special Terms and Conditions.
What applies if I only wish to change something?If there is an opportunity to make changes to parts of the booking, the Special Terms and Conditions indicate the cost of these. Please note that a change in the date of arrival or departure is deemed to be a cancellation.
What are the rules if something happens to me?You can protect yourself against cancellation costs by purchasing cancellation insurance. For prices, see the Special Terms and Conditions. Cancellation insurance allows you to cancel without having to pay any fee if the following occurs:
What happens if something goes wrong?If all or part of your booking cannot be realised in conformity with the booking confirmation, and no alternative arrangements can be made that differ only slightly from your booking and have no significance for you (e.g. hotels or cottages in the same class), you are entitled to cancel. In that case, everything you have paid will be refunded to you, less the value of any parts of the booking that you may have already used. If a transport service or an event that was part of the booking is cancelled on short notice, the refund will apply only to the cancelled event and/or transport service. If you have any complaint, you are required to present it to us within three days of your date of arrival. Errors and defects that arise during your stay must be reported immediately. This should be directed primarily to the hotel or cottage manager, for example. If you have failed to attempt to seek a remedy during the rental period, and therefore deprived the hotel or manager of the opportunity to correct any errors or defects, you may not subsequently demand compensation. If you are nevertheless dissatisfied with the compensation or reimbursement, you are required to present this in writing within 60 days after the date of departure.
What happens if the organiser and I are unable to agree?Please contact us directly with any complaints you may have. If we cannot agree, you can contact the National Board for Consumer Complaints (Sw. Allmänna Reklamationsnämnden, www.arn.se), which consists of an impartial chairperson and a number of representatives for tour organisers and consumers. The address of the Board is Box 174, 101 23 Stockholm
