The only service you can cancel free from charge is the service that has undergone the increase, all the other services, which have not undergone the increase, if canceled, are subject to the aforementioned charges

3 – ALTERATIONS BY CUSTOMER

If you wish to change your accommodations date or transport destination,after booking confirmation, we are generally faced with additional costs, just as with cancellations. Such alterations are therefore treated as cancellations. In cases where the alterations do not change the overnights date or destination, we will apply an administrative fee of 35€.

No changes may be made less than 21 days before departure, and cancellation fees will apply.

All cancellation charges apply to each person covered by any booking. In the event that one person who is due to share a room needs to cancel a trip, then the other person will then be charged for the full price, or the individual supplement.
