1. Scope

1.1 The General Terms and Conditions apply to contracts for the rental of holiday apartments for accommodation as well as all other services and deliveries provided by the landlord for the tenant.

1.2 The subletting or re-letting of the holiday home provided and its use for purposes other than residential require the prior written consent of the landlord.


2. Booking/Booking Confirmation

Bookings of the holiday apartments are made via the booking program on the website. The reservation for the holiday apartment is legally binding upon completion of the booking process and receipt of the booking confirmation or after payment has been made. With the booking, the tenant agrees to the general terms and conditions and the house rules of the landlord.


3. Terms of Payment

The deposit of 25% of the total amount must be transferred to the lessor's account within 14 days of receipt of the invoice. The remaining payment is to be transferred no later than 28 days before arrival. In the case of short-term bookings, the total price must be transferred immediately after receipt of the invoice/booking confirmation.

In the event of late payment, the guest will first receive a payment reminder. For each subsequent reminder after default occurs, a reminder fee of EUR 15.00 will be charged. Transaction fees (e.g. transfers from abroad) are to be borne by the tenant. Only payments by bank transfer are accepted.


4. Additional costs/tourist tax
The additional costs for water and electricity  are included in the rent. The use of a car parking space,  the use of the internet and a small children's package (cot, changing table, high chair, potty, toilet insert) are also included in the rent. The guest contribution of the city of Goslar is charged by the city of Goslar and calculated and paid separately by the landlord.


4. Arrival/departure

The holiday apartment is available on the day of arrival from 3 p.m. or by arrangement. Keys are handed over via a key safe. On the day of departure, the apartment must be vacated by 10 a.m. or by arrangement.


5. Stay

5.1 The use of the holiday apartment is reserved for the guests notified to the landlord when booking. If the property is used by more people than agreed, a separate fee must be paid for them in accordance with the price list. Subletting and letting of the apartment to third parties is not permitted. The rental contract may not be passed on to third parties.

5.2 In the event of violations of the terms and conditions or the house rules, the landlord is entitled to terminate the tenancy immediately and without notice. There is no legal entitlement to repayment of the rent or compensation.

5.3 The tenant is obliged to behave considerately, especially with regard to the volume.

5.4 Smoking is prohibited in the buildings.

5.5. Part of the garden with furniture and play equipment is at your disposal.


6. State of affairs

The apartment is handed over by the landlord in a clean condition. If defects exist or occur during the rental period, the landlord must be informed immediately. The tenant is liable for damage caused by him to the rental property and the inventory. If the property key is lost, the landlord reserves the right to replace the locking system and to charge the tenant for the costs incurred.

The inventory is to be treated appropriately and is only intended to remain in the holiday home. Moving furnishings, especially beds, is prohibited. In the event of non-contractual use of the holiday apartment, such as subletting, overcrowding, disturbance of the peace in the house and non-payment of the full rental price, the contract can be terminated by the landlord without notice. In this case, any payments already made by the tenant remain with the landlord.

If the lessee wants to make use of his liability insurance for a possible damage settlement, the lessor must be informed of this, stating his name and address, as well as the insurance number of the insurance company.


7. Pets

Pets of any kind are not allowed.


8. Travel Cancellation

In the event of withdrawal from the rental agreement, the tenant is obliged to pay part of the agreed price as compensation. A cancellation must be made in writing. The amount of compensation depends on the time up to the day of arrival and is calculated as follows:

  • 100% refund of the rental price if you cancel in writing at least 30 days before check-in

  • 50% refund of the rental price if you cancel in writing at least 14 days before check-in

  • No refund of the rental price if you cancel less than 14 days before check-in.

We recommend that you take out travel cancellation insurance.


9. Withdrawal by the landlord

The landlord reserves the right to withdraw from the rental contract in cases of force majeure or other unforeseeable circumstances that make it impossible to fulfill the rental contract. In this case, liability is limited to reimbursement of the rental price. In the event of justified withdrawal, the lessee is not entitled to compensation. Liability for travel and hotel costs is excluded.


10. Lessor Liability

The landlord is liable within the scope of the due diligence of a prudent businessman for the proper provision of the rental property. Liability for any failures or disruptions in the water or power supply as well as events and consequences of force majeure are hereby excluded. The landlord is only liable for things brought in by the guest within the framework of the statutory provisions.


11. WiFi Usage

11.1 The landlord maintains Internet access via WLAN in his holiday property. This is available to the tenant free of charge (exceptions 11.2 - 11.5).

11.2 If the landlord becomes aware of the illegal use of the WLAN access (file sharing, pornography, etc.) by the tenant, he will immediately exclude the tenant from using it and inform the authorities about the misuse.

11.3 The landlord is not liable to the tenant for disruptions to the WLAN access. The landlord is entitled to restrict the scope of use of the tenant's WLAN access at any time.

11.4 The landlord assumes no liability for any damage (malware or similar) caused by the use of the WLAN access. The tenant has to ensure the security of his data independently.

11.5 If the lessee makes use of services or similar that are subject to a charge via the WLAN, he/she shall bear the costs incurred for this in full.


12. Written Form

Agreements deviating from the General Terms and Conditions must be in writing. Verbal agreements were not made.


13. Severability Clause

Should one or more provisions of these General Terms and Conditions become ineffective, the validity of the remaining provisions shall not be affected. The ineffective provision is to be replaced by an effective one that comes as close as possible to the economic purpose of the ineffective provision.
