What Gjestehuset 102 does to the previous bookings in relation to Covid-19

Standard Bookings

Standard booking booked through all different booking channels will be refunded the amount these bookings are entitled to. NB! please remember that the refund transaction fee, as per our policy, will be deducted from the refund amount.

Non-refundable Bookings

Non-refundable bookings will remain non-refundable. However, Gjestehuset 102 is happy to offer a re-booking. What Gjestehuset 102 is now doing on non-refundable bookings, is to be generous in relation to re-booking so that we rather get a shift in revenue, rather than cancellations and cancellations. We therefore arrange for our guests to change dates if they confirm a new date for the trip within a reasonable time. The new travel date must be within the next 12 months from the originally scheduled trip. We consider this to be the best solution for all parties. NB! A re-booking fee might apply.

Gjestehuset 102 will always want and have a solid relationship with our customer/guests/friends. We hope that we can find solutions together in the situation we are in so that we can get stronger out of this.
