What is prepayment consump.?
The prepayment of consumption costs acts as a security for the home owner to ensure that any variable consumption costs, such as electricity, heating and water will be covered. A meter in the holiday home will track the usage and thereby costs. In the property presentation (Overview and Facilities) there is more info about which costs are included and excluded for each holiday home.
Why do I need to pay breakage deposit?
The breakage deposit is meant for the holiday home owner as a security and will cover potential damages that may occur to the holiday rental or to the grounds during your stay. Note: if you have caused any damages by accident, you will need to settle the amount yourself with the holiday home owner.
In the holiday homes where you have to pay for the consumption costs, these are usually deducted from the deposit on your departure from the holiday home.
Boat - Breakage deposit: In case the holiday home has a boat either included in the rental price or for rent, then you might be charged an additional breakage deposit for the use of this boat.
How do I pay the breakage deposit / prepayment consump.?
Usually the deposit / prepayment of consumption costs is paid on arrival in cash to the house owner or representative, when you collect the keys. It is paid in the local currency used at your destination.
In Denmark, you can pay the deposit / prepayment of consumption costs at the time of booking, or you can pay it when you collect the keys from our service office or representative on arrival. Here you can pay by cash or by credit card. Our recommendation is that you pay at the time of the booking, in order to save time when you pick up the keys.
When will the breakage deposit / prepayment be refunded?
In all of the countries, except from Denmark, the holiday home owner / representative will settle the deposit / prepayment of consumption costs with you at the same time as you hand back the keys. In a few instances the deposit will be refunded with a bank transfer, we advise you to bring your IBAN and Swift numbers with you.
In Denmark, where you pay prepayment of consumption costs on certain holiday homes, we will deduct the consumption costs from the original prepayment and within three weeks from your departure from the holiday home, we will transfer the remaining amount by bank transfer to you or refund it to the credit card that you used to pay for the booking, or/ prepayment of consumption costs in the first place.
If the consumption costs exceed the prepayment made, or damages exceeds the deposit, then we will invoice you for the outstanding amount.
Why do I have to pay tourist tax?
Local authorities in many countries in Europe charge a tourist tax from visitors to the country. You pay the tax in the local currency to the holiday home owner on arrival. The amount varies in each region. Tourist tax can be charged by either NOVASOL before departure or on-site in local currency.
