4. TREEHOUSE INSURANCE
In view of the specificity of this lodging, specific insurance coverage is included in the rental price. It provides coverage for the clauses specified below:
4/1 – Change or cancellation on your part PRIOR to your arrival
In the event of serious illness, a serious accident, or death, and upon presentation of a medical or death certificate, the treehouse insurance will reimburse your payment in full.
For any trip cancelled more than 30 days before the date of arrival that is not covered by the cancellation clauses listed above, we will withhold the equivalent of 30% of the cost of the trip. Between 30 and 8 days before the trip, 60% of the amount will be withheld. For trips cancelled within 7 days prior to the date of arrival, or cut short or unused for any reason, the complete cost of the trip booked will be due and will remain the property of the “Castèth et Enigmes” SASU.
4/2 – Modification or cancellation on our part PRIOR to your arrival
In the event of an orange weather alert, with outside events forecast that are out of our control, such as thunderstorms or storms, management reserves the right to cancel your trip for safety reasons. In this event, we will give you the opportunity to postpone your trip to a later date within the following 12 months. If you have already left your home, we can help you find new accommodations for the night. If none of these solutions are to your liking, the complete cost of your trip will be reimbursed. No other compensation may be requested.
4/3 – Change or cancellation on your part AFTER ARRIVAL
If you refuse to enter the treehouse (fear of heights), we will help you find accommodations nearby. If no other accommodations are available, the cost of the trip will be reimbursed, except for the processing fee.
4/4 – Modification or cancellation on by SASU Castèth et Enigmes AFTER YOUR ARRIVAL
In the event of an orange weather alert, with outside events forecast that are out of our control, such as thunderstorms or storms, management reserves the right to cancel your night in a treehouse for safety reasons. You will be given the option of another type of accommodation according to availability and at no extra charge. In this case, and only in this case, you will be given a 50% discount on an equivalent trip to a treehouse within the following 12 months. No other compensation may be requested. If and only if no other accommodations are available, the complete cost of the trip will be reimbursed or a date change will be offered within the following 12 months.
The rates listed on our website and in our brochures may be changed according to economic conditions or regulations, as they include all taxes. Only the price listed on your exchange voucher or other confirmation notice is final.
Rates include the night in the treehouse, the breakfast basket, cancellation insurance, and the tourist tax (€0.60 per adult).
