Booking Terms & Conditions

  1. Bookings & Deposit. Your contract is with Ski Summit and a booking form/contract will be issued once a booking is accepted and a deposit payment of £100 per week of the rental period is received. One copy should be signed and returned by the client. If the booking is made within 6 weeks of the commencement date, the full cost of the rental must also be submitted. The person making the booking is personally liable for the total cost of the rental so booked whether or not the names of other persons appear on the booking form. No contract shall exist between Ski Summit and the client until a signed booking form/contract as above and the correct deposit is received by Ski Summit. The client is the person in whose name the booking is made, and shall include all other persons on whose behalf the booking is made.
  2. Payment. The full cost of the rental must be paid to Ski Summit 6 weeks before the rental commencement date. This cost is in addition to the deposit monies. The deposit monies will be retained until the end of the rental period, and will be returned after our Agents have inspected the property and ensured no damage or breakages have taken place, and once the keys have been returned to us. If damage has occurred or keys are lost we reserve the right to make appropriate deductions from the deposit monies. If damage has occurred the cost of which exceeds the deposit monies then we will take action for the recovery of the difference. If the full payment is not received as indicated then we reserve the right to cancel the booking without further notice to the client and any deposit paid will be forfeited.

  3. Tariffs. The tariffs quoted on the site are in pounds sterling and cover the cost of a weeks rental, from Saturday to Saturday unless otherwise stated; the rental period commencing 1600 hrs French time to 1000 hrs the following Saturday. The tariff covers all electricity, heating and water used by the client's party and is not dependent on the number of persons in the party. Clients are advised of the size of the apartment and its facilities – beds, seating, etc. – and it is left to the client's own judgement as to how large a party will be comfortable within the facilities as represented. Ski Summit cannot be held responsible for the client's decision regarding his/her party. A Tourist Tax of 85p per adult (18 or over) per night will be levied by us and passed on to the Courchevel Mairie.

  4. Linen & Towels. Linen and towels are not included within the quoted tariff. British-style oblong pillows and duvets – one double and two singles – are provided for the three beds, so British clients may bring their own pillowcases, duvet covers and under sheets as required. Alternatively a linen service can be provided through our local Agents. This will consist of single and double duvet cover, pillowcase and undersheet sets, plus hand and bath towels and bath mats. The Agents make a charge for this service and Ski Summit will pass on that charge to the client. The charges are per week as follows: Double bed linen set: £23. Single bed linen set: £18 per bed. Towel sets – hand towel, bath towel and bath mat – are £10 each. Clients should indicate their requirements on the booking form if required.

  5. Client's responsibility for accommodation. The client must undertake to behave with propriety and in no way cause distress, danger or injury to other persons within the building or to any other third party. The client shall indemnify Ski Summit against all actions, loss, damages and costs whatsoever, in consequence of any claim by any person arising out of any act or default on the part of the client or any member of his/her party throughout the rental period. Ski Summit reserve the right to deal with or settle any such claim as they in their absolute discretion see fit.

  6. Apartment Safety. French Health & Safety regulations are different from those in the UK and  apartments are not covered by these regulations. We endeavour to maintain our property in a safe condition, however you should take extra care with the use of electricity and with naked flames in the property, and also with open staircases – particularly when children are in your party. NB. It is forbidden to bring inflammable gases and liquids onto the property. Your safety is your responsibility. However it is important that you notify us if you discover a possible hazard. We will then do our best to rectify the problem.

  7. Cancellation of Rental by us. Ski Summit will in no case cancel your rental except for reasons of 'Force Majeure' which includes: war, political unrest, weather, strikes, acts of god, epidemics, riots, civil strife, industrial disputes, terrorist activity, natural and technical disasters, or unless the client defaults in the payment of the balance of the rental price. In circumstances where we are unable to provide the rental as booked, we will return to you all monies paid, or offer alternative accommodation of a comparable standard. We will not in any circumstances accept liability for damage to holiday expectations caused by 'Force Majeure' beyond the return of monies paid.

  8. Cancellation of Rental by a client. You, or any member of your party, may cancel your rental providing that the cancellation is made by the person signing the booking form and is communicated to us in writing.As this incurs costs, we reserve the right to retain all or part of the monies so far received. The amount returned will be dependent or whether a re-booking can be obtained, and after any additional costs or financial detriment to Ski Summit as a result of the cancellation have been taken into account. Cancellations due to unforeseen circumstances may be covered by the client's travel insurance, and we strongly advise that such travel insurance is taken out, with suitable winter sports additional coverage.

  9. Lost property. In the event that clients lose property while on holiday or leave items in the apartment, no responsibility will be accepted by Ski Summit in the event that the property is not recovered or is damaged upon return.

  10. Contract. The booking contract is made on the terms of these conditions which are governed by English  Law and both parties shall submit to the jurisdiction of the English Courts at all times.

  11. Sub-letting. We do not allow sub-letting of our properties under any circumstances and we reserve the right to terminate the rental forthwith and at any time if we discover any action of sub-letting. The rental will be deemed to have been cancelled by the client and charges as set out in Clause 8. will apply.
