Hello, and welcome to our Terms and Conditions, which describe all the rules that apply when you decide to use our services or our website. By booking with us, you automatically agree that you accept our rules and regulations. Hence it is very important that you read and understand our terms and conditions before applying to one of our workations.
The terms ‘Flaks’, ‘we’, ‘us’, ‘our’ are used to indicate the organizers of the program and the expressions ‘Flakser’, ‘you’, ýour’ stand for the participants.
Should you have any further questions, please feel free to contact us.
Applying and Booking
When you book any of our programs, you agree to all our terms and conditions, therefore we kindly ask you to read our rules carefully before joining our Flaks workations.
Your application is considered confirmed when you get a booking confirmation from us after paying the reservation fee. In case there is no reservation fee applicable, then your application is confirmed after fulfilling the full invoice. After receiving the invoice with the full amount your spot will be reserved for 14 days. If the invoice is not fulfilled within those days your spot will be open to book by others again.
The deposits (reservation fee) paid are non-refundable.
We reserve the right to deny any application for any reason.
The reservation of the accommodation is secure on the moment that the full invoice has been paid. As the number of participants is limited, in the event of too many applications we will look at the date and time of the moment the money was received. We reserve the right to cancel the application of the participants that paid later. These participants will in that case receive a full refund.
Cancellation by Flaksers
Flaksers may cancel their trip in writing at [email protected]. The cancellation is effective after our confirmation email. Depending on the date of cancellation, Flaksers may be entitled to a partial refund with the following conditions:
> 60 days: The reservation fee is held as cancellation;
60 days – 31 days: 33% of the price is held as cancellation;
30 days – 15 days: 67% of the price is held as cancellation;
14 days – 0 days: 100% of the price is held as cancellation.
No refund is possible in case of no show.
If a participant does not want to take part in an organized and included event or does not want to use the provided facilities during the program, that participant is responsible for the costs and organization of any alternatives.
Cancellation by Flaks
Flaks reserves the right to cancel the workation at any time and for any unforeseen reason. In the event of cancellation, Flaksers will get a full refund.
We also have the right to cancel a participant’s place at our program if full payment is not received.
In case of changes in the dates or the location Flaks will give the Flaksers the option to still participate or to get fully refunded. The previously provided contact information will be used to notify every participant about any changes as soon as possible.
Health requirements and travel documents, Passports, Visas
It is your responsibility to make sure that you are in possession of all necessary health and travel documents before the start of the program.
You must ensure that you are aware of any health requirements and recommended precautions relevant to your travel destination and ensure that you carry all necessary vaccination documentation. In some cases, failure to show required vaccination documentation (e.g. proof of Yellow Fever vaccination) may deny you entry into a country. It is highly recommended that you consult with your local doctor, travel medical service or specialist vaccination clinic before departing.
A full and valid passport and Visas may be required for our destinations. Requirements may change and it is your responsibility to confirm them prior to booking with the consulate or Embassy in which you are intending to travel.
The participants are not insured by the organizer. The participants are obliged to insure that they have sufficient health, travel and accident insurance coverage (including sport coverage).
