The operator can deviate from these conditions in consultation with the tenant.

When booking a period of more than 2 days, the operator may request an advance of 40% of the agreed rental price.

The current rates can be found on our website:

The Tax on the provision of accommodation from the City of Mechelen (in short 'city tax') is charged separately for each stay (current rate on the website).

4 Cancellation or no show

In the unlikely event that you are unable to comply with the rental agreement entered into, you must report this to us as soon as possible so that we can still offer the released reservation to third parties.

In case of cancellation, the tenant pays a fee to the operator according to the chosen rate:

For individual bookings:

When booking you have the choice between flexible or non-refundable rates.

A non-refundable rate is cheaper but the consequence, as the name already indicates, that you can no longer cancel your stay free of charge.

This is never good news, but we cannot carry this for you, we count on your understanding and respect when applying and following these conditions. You can, however, move the reservation free of charge at the latest 2 days before arrival and if the reservation was made directly through us and not through the website of third parties.

You can cancel the flexible / refundable rates up to 48 hours before your arrival.

Example: If you booked a stay and wish to cancel less than 48 hours before the date of arrival, the entire stay will be charged.

So if you want to cancel for tomorrow, you should have canceled before 4 pm yesterday.

Even if you do not come, this stay will be charged.

Refundable rate

  1. if canceled up to 2 days before arrival 4:00 pm: no cancellation costs will be charged
  2. less than 2 days before arrival or no-show: 100% of the agreed price will be charged.

Non-refundable rate

In case of cancellation at any time or no-show: 100% of the agreed price will be charged.

The amount due is then to be transferred within 14 days to the bank account of the operator or the payment method specified when booking is charged.

For group bookings (> 2 rooms):

From 2 rooms we speak of a group booking, different cancellation conditions apply:

• Between 7 and 0 days before arrival: 100%.

• Between 21 and 8 days before arrival: 50%

• more than 21 days before arrival: 0%
