Additional services are those services that are provided in the accommodation unit, but are not included in the price of its lease (food services, use of the washing machine, boat rental, bike rental, etc.), and therefore the guest pays for them separately and on the condition that they are actually used. and benefits.

Although most of the additional services are optional, there are also those of a binding nature (e.g. additional payment for final cleaning, extraordinary transportation to the facility, guest check-in, etc.).
Given that the availability of the desired accommodation depends on some additional services (e.g. food, bringing a pet, use of an extra bed…), and given that all additional services (e.g. boat, boat mooring, internet…) they do not always have to be available, the guest is obliged to declare all desired additional services when creating a reservation request.

In some cases, the guest will have to pay a cash deposit directly to the service provider before starting to use the rented accommodation. The deposit serves as a guarantee to the service provider that the guest in the rented accommodation will not commit any damage. On the day of departure, the deposit will be returned to the guest in full, but only after the service provider has previously determined that the guest has handed over the rented accommodation in the condition in which he took it over.

The guest will be informed about all mandatory surcharges, the exact amount of surcharges for desired services and possible deposits, as well as the method of their payment, at the latest when the offer is sent.

If the price of a specific accommodation unit changes after registration, and before payment of the advance payment, Montona tours undertakes to inform the guest immediately after learning of the change and, with his consent, to send him a new calculation.

If the prices of the accommodation and agreed additional services change after the advance payment, and the guest does not accept the new offered price, Montona tours will offer an adequate replacement of the accommodation or a refund. In the event that the service provider, i.e. Montona tours, lowers the price of the accommodation unit after the guest has confirmed the reservation, the guest is not entitled to a new, lower price.
The contracting parties agree that Montona tours has the right to increase the price before the start of using the service if, after the confirmation of the reservation, there has been a change in the exchange rate of the contracted currency by more than 5% or an increase in other costs affecting the price of the service, of which Montona tours was not aware nor could know. The guest has the right to cancel the reservation if the increase in the agreed price is more than 10%. In this case, the guest has the right to a refund of the amount paid until then without the right to compensation. The money is returned to the guest’s bank account at the agency’s expense.

The guest can change an already defined reservation only if the service provider agrees with it, and this may include: changing the holder of the reservation, the date of the reservation, the number of persons, the age of the persons, and the type of basic or additional services reserved. The request to change the reservation is submitted in writing (by e-mail or post). The processing of the mentioned changes is charged as a flat rate in the amount of 15 euros/kuna equivalent per change (new calculation).

If the guest wants to cancel the reserved accommodation, he must do so in writing (by e-mail or mail).

The date when Montona tours received the written notice of cancellation is the basis for the calculation of cancellation costs, as follows:

For cancellation up to 71 days before the start of using the rented service, Montona tours will refund 100% of the total price of the rented accommodation. The money is returned to the guest less bank charges.
For cancellation from 70 to 57 days before the start of using the leased service, Montona tours charges 50% of the total price of the leased accommodation. The rest of the money is returned to the guest at the recipient’s expense.
For cancellation from 56 to 0 days before the start of using the leased service, Montona tours charges 100% of the total price of the leased accommodation.
If the guest does not show up at the destination or cancels the rented services after the start of use, the guest has no right to claim the amount paid.

If the actual costs are higher than previously stated, Montona tours reserves the right to charge the actual costs.

If the guest finds a new user of the same reservation when canceling the reservation of the leased accommodation, Montona tours only charges the costs of the replacement.

If the reservation is canceled due to the death of the guest (the holder of the reservation) or a member of his immediate family, Montona tours charges only the minimum costs of cancellation of the reservation (25%). This provision will be applied in the event of the death of any member of the group or the death of a member of his immediate family (spouses, brothers, sisters, parents and children), but with the condition that the agency has information that this person was registered as a member of the group.

The guest is obliged to forward the death certificate to the agency, as well as any confirmation of the deceased person’s relationship with the holder of the reservation, that is, a member of the group.

Immediately after determining the exact amount of money to be returned to the guest, the amount paid will be refunded at the guest’s expense.
The cancellation of the reservation caused by any other reason will always be resolved with the obligatory payment of cancellation costs according to the specified scale.

If the guest does not arrive at the reserved accommodation by 8:00 p.m. on the day of starting to use the rented service, and has not informed Montona tours or the service provider about the reasons for his possible delay, the reservation will be considered canceled on the day of arrival, and cancellation costs will be calculated according to the specified scale. In the event that the service provider received other guests in the meantime, the guest has no right to complain and loses the right to a refund of the amount paid.

Montona tours is obliged to take care of the implementation of services, as well as the selection of service providers, and take care of the rights and interests of the guest in accordance with good customs in tourism.

Montona tours is obliged to ensure that all leased services are provided to the guest, and is therefore liable to the guest for possible non-performance of the leased services or part of the services.

Montona tours excludes any responsibility in case of changes and non-performance of services caused by force majeure in the territory of the guest’s country or the territory of the country where the service should be performed (war, riots, strikes, terrorist actions, natural disasters, interventions of competent authorities, etc.) result in the inability of the guest to spend his vacation in the reserved accommodation unit. In these cases, the advance payment is not returned to the guest, nor can it be recognized as an advance payment for alternative accommodation that the guest would like to book in another destination or at another time.

The guest is obliged to:

have valid travel documents for all persons (including travel documents for children and mandatory documents for pets). Costs of loss or theft of documents during the trip are borne by the guest;
comply with the customs and foreign exchange regulations of the Republic of Croatia, as well as the countries through which you pass during your trip;

on the day of your arrival, pay the outstanding part of the bill at the agency office or directly to the owner of the facility, if you have not done so before;
upon arrival at the rented accommodation unit, present the voucher to the service provider with the exact number of persons and the type of services that must be provided to them;
come to the accommodation unit in the exact number and with the exact structure of persons that he announced to the agency. If more people or a different structure of people arrive in the reserved accommodation unit than is indicated on the voucher, the service provider has the right to deny service to unannounced guests or ask for a surcharge for them;
announce the arrival with a pet so that the service provider gives their express consent beforehand. The service provider has the right to deny service to guests if they insist that an unannounced pet also use the rented accommodation;
comply with house rules in the rented accommodation unit, and cooperate with service providers in good faith.

In cases of non-compliance with these obligations, the guest may be deprived of the reserved accommodation without the right to refund the amount paid and without the right to compensation.

Accommodation prices do not include the “package” of travel insurance: insurance against the risk of an accident and travel illness, insurance against damage and loss of luggage, as well as voluntary health insurance.

Luggage is transported by the guest personally at his own risk, and therefore it is recommended to insure the luggage with an insurance company.

Montona tours is not responsible for destroyed or lost luggage, as well as for the theft of luggage in the accommodation unit. The guest submits a report for damaged, lost or stolen luggage to the accommodation service provider and the competent police station.

The guest has the right to complain only because of wrongly published photos, i.e. incorrectly presented data related to the rented accommodation unit, except in the case when the situation is found in favor of the guest. In addition, the guest has the right to complain about disorder or dirtiness in the rented accommodation unit.

The guest waives the right to object to all the facts listed on the Montona tours website, which he did not notice beforehand, as well as to all the facts that Montona tours employees warned him about.

The guest waives the right to complain on any other basis, and in particular the right to complain about any unfavorable climatic conditions, the configuration of the beach, the cleanliness of the beach, the cleanliness and provision of the destination, the cleanliness and temperature of the sea, and all similar situations and events that may cause the guest’s dissatisfaction, and do not directly relate to the quality of the reserved accommodation unit (eg local problems with water supply, sewage problems, overcrowding, theft or damage to property, etc.).

Every well-founded complaint results in the elimination of the advertised defects, and if this is not possible, in the offer of alternative accommodation. If the service provider is unable to remedy the advertised defects, and Montona tours is unable to offer alternative accommodation, Montona tours will refund the amount paid at its own expense. The highest compensation paid per complaint can only be up to the amount paid. The guest waives in advance the claim of any related material or non-material damage (eg bank costs for sending money, phone costs, additional fuel costs, loss of time, excessive stress, mental pain…). Each guest – holder of a confirmed reservation, submits a complaint separately.

On the day of arrival, the guest is obliged to report the inappropriate service immediately to the representative of the service provider (receptionist or accommodation owner, etc.) and inform the agency office in Motovun about it by e-mail at info@montonatours.com or by phone at +385 52 681 970. Guest is obliged to cooperate with the service provider and the agency in good faith to remove the causes of the complaint. If the guest on the spot accepts the offered solution to the complaint that corresponds to the paid service, the agency is not obliged to accept the subsequent complaint.

If the problem has not been resolved even after the on-site intervention, no later than 8 days after returning from vacation, the guest is obliged to send a written complaint together with accompanying documents and photos that prove the basis of the complaint to the agency by e-mail at info@montonatours.com or by mail at the address Montona tours d.o.o., Kanal 10, HR-52424 Motovun. The agency will consider only fully documented complaints received within 8 days after the end of the reservation.

While the resolution process lasts, and in total no more than 14, or 28 days after lodging the objection, the guest irrevocably renounces mediation by any other person, arbitration by UHPA or another institution, as well as providing information to the media. Likewise, during this time, the guest waives the right to sue. The maximum amount of compensation per complaint can reach the amount of the advertised part of the services, and it cannot include already used services or the entire amount of the arrangement. This excludes the guest’s right to compensation for ideal damages.

These general conditions for the provision of accommodation services are an integral part of the Agreement that the Contractor/Client enters into with the Agency. By paying an advance payment or the entire amount of the arrangement, the Contractor/Client fully accepts these accommodation conditions, and the Agreement is valid even without the signature of the Contractor/Client

The parties will try to resolve any potential dispute amicably. In case the parties fail to resolve the dispute, they agree that the dispute will be resolved by the competent court in Pazin.

The legal regulations of the Republic of Croatia that are in force apply to everything that is not specifically specified in these General Terms and Conditions.
