Legal notice

Here our General Terms & Conditions:

ACCOMMODATION PROVIDER

Section 1 General

The (general) Austrian Hotel Contract Conditions state the contractual content according to which Austrian accommodation providers generally conclude accommodation contracts with their guests.

The Austrian Hotel Contract Conditions do not exclude special agreements.

 
(2) The persons using the accommodation are guests in accordance with the contract conditions. 
 
(2) It can be agreed that the guest provides an advance payment.
(3) The accommodation provider can also request the advance payment of the entire agreed payment amount. 
 
(2) In case of no-show of the guest by 6.00 pm on the agreed arrival day, the accommodation provider has the right to withdraw from the contract unless a later arrival time has been agreed.  
(3) However, if the guest has made an advance payment, the room or rooms remain reserved until 12.00 pm the following day at the latest.
(4) If a room is occupied before 6.00 am in the morning, the previous night counts as the first overnight stay. 
(5) The guest must vacate the hired rooms by 10.00 am on the day of departure. 
 
(2) The accommodation contract can be cancelled by both contract partners by unilateral statement up to at least one month before the agreed arrival date of the guest. However, a cancellation fee of 30% of the value of the booked room rate applies. 
(3) In the case of no-show of the guest by 6.00 pm on the agreed arrival day, the accommodation provider has the right to withdraw from the contract unless a later arrival time has been agreed.  
(4) However, if the guest has made an advance payment, the room or rooms remain reserved until 12.00 pm the following day at the latest.
(5) Even if the guest does not make use of the ordered rooms/guest house services, he is under the obligation to pay the accommodation provider the agreed payment amount. However, the accommodation provider must deduct what he saves as a result of the non-utilisation of his service or what he has obtained by letting the booked room/s to other guests. Experience has shown that, in the majority of cases, the savings an accommodation provider makes as a result from the non-utilisation of the services amount to 20 percent of the room rate and 30 percent of the costs of board.
(6) The accommodation provider shall endeavour to let the unutilised room/s to other guests accordingly. (Section 1107 of the Austrian Civil Code (ABGB)).
The cancellation terms specified in Section 1, 2, and 5 are non-binding association recommendations within the meaning of Sections 31et seqq. Austrian Cartel Law, advised in 26 Kt 79/03 by the Vienna Higher Regional Court, acting as the Cartel Court.
 
(2) An objective justification shall, for example, be deemed given if the room(s) has (have) become unusable, guests that have already been accommodated prolong their stay or this becomes necessary due to other important operational activities.
(3) Any possible extra costs for the substitute accommodation shall be borne by the accommodation provider.  
 
(2) The guest has the right to occupy the hired rooms from 2.00 pm on the agreed date.  
(3) If full-board or half-board has been agreed, the guest has the right to request an appropriate substitute (packed lunch) or a coupon for meals which he does not take, provided that he has indicated this in good time, meaning 6.00 pm the previous day. 
(4) Otherwise, the guest has no right to claim a substitute if he does not take the agreed meals within the usual scheduled times and in the facilities specified for this purpose even though the accommodation provider is willing to provide the service.
Any costs arising from the acceptance of these securities, for example for telegrams, enquiries, etc., shall be borne by the guest. 
(2) If food and drink is available at the accommodation establishment, but is taken there and consumed in public areas by guests, the accommodation provider shall be entitled to charge an appropriate compensation (so-called "corkage charge" for drinks). 
(3) Guests must obtain the consent of the accommodation provider prior to using their own electrical devices, which do not form part of the normal travel necessities.
(4) In case of damages caused by the guest, the provisions of the Austrian tort law shall apply. The guest shall be liable for all damage and disadvantage suffered by the accommodation provider or third parties and caused by the guest or accompanying or other persons for whom the guest is responsible even if the injured party is entitled to claim compensation directly from the accommodation provider. 
 
(2) To secure the agreed payment, the accommodation provider has the right of lien on the objects brought to the accommodation by the guest. (Section 1101 ABGB, accommodation provider’s right of lien).
(3) If service is requested either in the guest's room or at unusual times, the accommodation provider shall be entitled to charge a special supplement for this service. This special supplement must be specified in the room rate list. The accommodation provider may also refuse these services for operational reasons.
 
(2) Prices for chargeable special services not included in the accommodation rate must be displayed. Such services are:
a) Special services provided by the accommodation which are billed separately such as the provision of salons, saunas and indoor pool, (outdoor) swimming pool, solarium, floor bathroom, garage etc.
b) A reduced rate applies to the provision of additional beds and/or cots.
(3) The displayed prices must include VAT.
 
(2) Liability for objects brought on the premises. In addition to this, the accommodation provider, as custodian of the objects brought by the accommodated guests, shall be liable up to a maximum amount of EUR 1,100.00, unless he can prove that the damage was caused neither by him or one of his employees nor by external persons entering and leaving the building. 
In such circumstances, the accommodation provider shall be liable for valuables, money and securities up to a maximum amount of EUR 550.00, unless he had taken these objects for safekeeping in the knowledge of their condition, or unless the damage was caused by himself or one of his employees. In this case, he shall be liable without limitation. A publicly displayed exclusion of liability has no legal effect. 
Safekeeping of valuables, money and securities may be refused if the objects left by the guest for safekeeping substantially exceed the value of objects usually left by guests for safekeeping. Agreements reducing the liability below the extent in the paragraphs above are legally ineffective. Objects shall be deemed left for safekeeping upon acceptance by an employee of the accommodation establishment or if they are taken to a place designated for this purpose. (In particular Sections 970 et seqq. ABGB.)
 
(2) The guest shall be liable for damages caused by any pet brought onto the premises. The relevant statutory provisions for pet owners shall apply (Section 1320 ABGB).
 
 
In addition, the provision in Section 5 (5) (deduction percentages) applies mutatis mutandis.
(2) The contract with the accommodation provider ends with the death of the guest.
(3) If the accommodation contract was agreed for a non-specific period, the contract partners may terminate the contract at any time, provided that they adhere to a notification period of three days. The cancellation must reach the contract partner by 10.00 am, otherwise not this day but the next shall be considered as the first day of the notification period.
(4) If the guest does not vacate the room by 12.00 pm, the accommodation provider shall be entitled to charge the rate for the room for a further day. 
(5) The accommodation provider shall be entitled to terminate the accommodation contract with immediate effect if the guest: 
a) uses the rooms in a considerably disadvantageous way or spoils the stay of other guests by his ruthless, indecent or even impertinent behaviour, or commits punishable action against property, morality or physical security against the accommodation provider or his staff or a guest staying at the accommodation establishment;
(6) The contract shall be terminated if the fulfilment of the contract becomes impossible due to an event assessed as force majeure. However, the accommodation provider shall be obliged to return the payments received already, thus he does not make any profit from the event. (Section 1447 ABGB.)
 
Th accommodation provider shall be entitled to the following cost compensation from the guest or, in case of the guest’s death, from his legal successor:
a) Compensation for all medical expenses not settled by the guest.
e) Compensation for the loss of income from the room if the use of the room is temporarily not possible due to the illness or the fatality. (Minimum three days, maximum seven days).
 
 
Please note: Existing illnesses (but see Article 13 European Travel Insurance Conditions ERV-RVB 2016, Hotel Industry 2007) are only insured if they unexpectedly become medically acute. 
Premium: € 25.00 per person (booking value from € 500.00 per room)
 
(2) The place of jurisdiction for any disputes arising from the accommodation contract shall be the accommodation establishment’s local competent court, unless:
a) the guest has, as a consumer, a domestic place of employment or residence. In this case, the place of jurisdiction shall be the place specified by the guest in the registration
b) the guest, as a consumer, only has a domestic place of employment. In this case, the place of jurisdiction shall be the place of employment.
