Policy Trip Cancellation Coronavirus May 2020

Policy Trip Cancellation Coronavirus

With the coronavirus is safe to travel? Here is our booking and cancellation policy and time of covid-19.

Last update: 25 may 2020.

The world health Organization (WHO) has declared the state of emergency of public health of international concern (PHEIC) for the current situation linked to the COVID-19.

We constantly monitor and carefully all the official indications by the Italian government and the regional health authorities and of the President of the Region of Puglia, Michele Emiliano.

In this page we will put all updates available as there will be news in order to ensure the summer holidays in the province of Lecce, the province of Taranto, province of Brindisi, the Province of BAT and the Province of Bari.

What are we doing to deal with the current situation linked to the COVID-19 in the context of our policy BarbarHouse s.r.l.

Not being able to attempt to mitigate the effects of total uncertainty that is characterising this period, we are adopting a policy that aims to balance the protection of all the interests at stake, i.e. in the first place, to travellers and owners and in the last part of our and that of our employees and that of companies related to the induced generated.

As well as every tourist who has paid with their savings, a holiday that may not come true, there is an owner that is relying on the cancellation terms and conditions are clear and certain and related revenue, to be able to cope with the payment of mortgages and salaries.

We BarbarHouse s.r.l. we decided that the customer/tourist will not lose the deposit if there are objective reasons of the cancellation coronavirus (covid-19), but will have a double option:

  • the issuance of a voucher to be used on the same property within the 16/03/2021 for a stay within the 31/12/2021.
  • partial refund of 50% of the amount paid with the loss of the remaining 50%.

Are to be considered as objective causes of cancellation, the following assumptions apply: adoption of measures leading to the lockdown in Italy, unable to travel for limitations, the Italian government, restrictions to the movement of people in the region Puglia, compulsory quarantine of the customer/tourist who made the booking, or one of his guests declared at the time of booking and is already captured in our information systems, all the circumstances that must explain effective only during the period of the booked stay.

there are No objective reasons for cancellation: governmental restrictions of foreign governments, fear of travel bans, personal travel for reasons not related to medical emergencies, changes in holidays, loss of a job, cancellation of an event is subjectively important, cancellation of a flight.

Attention, despite the BarbarHouse s.r.l. both a Travel Agency and Tour Operator do not apply in any case, tourist packages, but acts as a mere intermediary in the tourist locations within the meaning of the law on rental for short (D. L. 50/2017).

The voucher of BarbarHouse s.r.l. it does not therefore constitute any title of trip suitable for any airline.

Bookings with check-in until 31/05/2020

the customer/tourist will not lose the deposit and will have the double option of
a) TO receive a voucher of equal amount to the amount you paid.

  1. the voucher will be valid for a booking on the same property until 31/12/2021.

  5. If it is not used within this period, you will forfeit fully paid up.
  6. once used the voucher will not be able to change the dates of stay, and will be subject to the normal terms and conditions.
  7. change of dates will result in the application of the rates in force for the chosen period, provided the minimum cost is already provided for the original period, therefore,
    1. if the period of displacement would have an amount of rental top, the customer will have to pay the difference in price;
    2. however, if the chosen period had a lower cost,the price of the new reservation will remain the original one.
B) ricevere an immediate refund of the 50%
