Covid-19 cancellation guarantee

When orienting towards the winter sports holiday for the next season you want to know how we deal with any persistent Corona travel restrictions. What are the cancellation conditions for a Lock-down, quarantine rules, travel restrictions, etc. Will I be insured or have I lost my money?

Your winter sports booking is well insured with us.

For a small fee you can choose a “money back guarantee” at the time of booking. You will then receive your full travel sum minus the costs of this option (type of insurance) and the booking costs. If you do not choose this, we will pay the travel sum in the form of a value voucher. You can therefore always cancel your trip free of charge on the basis of the following Corona travel restrictions: (Reference date is one week before the trip)

  • negative travel advice, based on the booker’s country by the only authorized body that knows the country in question (for the Netherlands this is the Ministry of Foreign Affairs)
  • travel restrictions, for example not allowing Dutch tourists
  • quarantine arrangement at country of receipt or upon return
  • form of Lock-down, for example accommodation closed or ski resort closed

The two options explained

  1. Value voucher: the amount of this value voucher is 100% of the total sum minus the booking costs. If you have booked extra options such as skipasses of equipment hire, we will refund this.
  2. Money back guarantee: at the time of making the booking you can choose the “money back guarantee” option. This option can be booked for a small additional fee. We will refund the entire travel sum minus the booking costs and the costs of this option. If you choose this option, the payment will be made via a guarantee account. The STO Garant guarantee account, also known as a third-party account, ensures that your money is safe and that you benefit from the “money back guarantee”.

F.A.Q.

  • What are the benefits of the guarantee service?

    The advantage of this guarantee is that you get your money back if the trip can not take place. This will then replace a voucher, as described in our Covid-19 cancellation guarantee.

  • What is covered by this guarantee?

    The guarantee applies to the elements listed on the booking confirmation, excluding administration, warranty and any insurance costs. The amount of the compensation is maximum the amount of the total travel sum.

  • When can I close this guarantee?

    You can take out this guarantee up to 1 week after booking. It cannot be closed afterwards.

  • What am I entitled to if I do not choose the guarantee and there is a negative travel advice for the destination of my holiday?

    Initially, Chalet Beyond will be looking for equivalent accommodation in another area, which may be another winter sports country. As a customer, you can reject this but only with reasonable grounds. Chalet Beyond is then looking for a second alternative. If the second alternative is rejected again, with reasonable grounds, we will reimburse the trip in the form of a voucher, these vouchers are then valid for two years.

  • What happens to my winter sports holiday if the travel advice is adjusted to negative during my stay?

    We will get in touch with you as soon as possible and will ask you to leave the accommodation and the area as soon as possible. The financial settlement will take place by means of a voucher (option 1) or by means of a monetary compensation (option 2) as explained earlier above. The amount of the compensation will be the part of the period that you missed.

  • Will the money be refunded immediately in case of negative travel advice?

    We will do our utmost to get the refund in order as soon as possible. This will be done by 14 days at the latest.
