COVID Booking terms and Conditions from May 2022 - current to be read in conjunction with our standard Booking Terms and Conditions

We have been in the catered chalet holiday business in Les Gets for 28 years.  Whilst this year’s COVID pandemic has been unprecedented for all of us, using Jane’s extensive experience in infection control and as an ICU nurse and adhering to government guidelines, we have successfully introduced measures to ensure social distancing and the highest standards of hygiene and disinfection at Chalet Bluebell.   We have successfully used these protocols throughout the Summer season and will continue to do so for the winter season.

We realise that our customers will appreciate flexibility when booking their well-earned holiday for the coming season.  In recognition of this, from now and continuing for summer 2022 we are offering fully flexible booking terms.

Our flexible COVID-19 booking terms will be in place through Summer 2022

We offer the assurance that monies will not be forfeited if your holiday booking is disrupted for any of the following reasons:
IT IS ESSENTIAL THAT YOU TAKE OUT A COVID TRAVEL INSURANCE POLICY AT THE TIME YOU MAKE YOUR PAYMENT

You are unable to travel due to quarantine measures.  This will apply in the following circumstances:

  1. Your Government’s and/or Foreign Office’s advice states that you are advised not to travel and/or are forbidden to travel to France during the period of your holiday.
  2. Local advice from the Haute Savoie Prefecture prevents you from staying in our Chalet during the period of your holiday booking.
  3. Our Chalet is closed due to an outbreak of COVID-19 during the period of your holiday with a pro-rata refund if your holiday is interrupted.
  4. Should only 1 or 2 people in your party suddenly develop Covid and can’t travel then we would NOT expect the whole group to cancel and therefore monies would not be refunded this is all at the discretion of the owners.

In line with our current booking terms and conditions, we require a £200 GBP deposit per person to confirm your booking. Your deposit payment is normally non-refundable and non-transferable, but in light of the uncertainties due to COVID restrictions ahead, if you are affected by any of the circumstances in clauses 1 to 3 above, we will transfer your deposit payment to a new booking date either later in the current season or in the next season, or if you prefer we will issue a full refund of your deposit.

Your final balance payment of the holiday price will be due 8 weeks before you are due to arrive.  Once the final balance payment of the holiday price has been made you will still be able to cancel your existing booking if the circumstances specified in clauses 1 to 3 above apply. You can either transfer your holiday payment to a new booking date or receive a full refund of your holiday payment.

This means your booking deposit payment and your final holiday balance payment can be transferred to any other available dates in Summer 2022 up to the end of 2023 if your cancellation is due to the events in clauses 1 to 3 above.

We are offering these COVID-19 specific booking terms relating only to the payment to us for your holiday and in the specific circumstances described in clauses 1 – 3 above. It is a condition of our general booking terms that you have adequate insurance cover and you must carry this cover for all other risks including COVID. We will not be liable for any other uninsured risks. All other holiday booking terms and conditions remain the same as per our general terms and conditions.  “MPI Brokers” are offering insurance cover if you fall sick with COVID-19 before or during your holiday.

All monies are held in a secure account that we can only access to refund you.

COVID Sanitation and Health and safety

We always maintain a very high level of cleanliness in our chalet.

We have invested in an electrostatic sprayer which after COVID sanitation cleaning gives extra confidence in full disinfection especially around all high contact areas such as light switches and door handles.

IF you should feel unwell with COVID type symptoms – you MUST inform Jane Sayer immediately and go and get a test at The Pharmacy in Les Gets.  Should you test positive, you would have to remain in your room during your stay (any other guests in your room would have to isolate too) and we would require you to leave Chalet Bluebell at the end of your planned stay.  We would serve your meals in your room for the duration of your pre-booked stay.  Should this happen – Refunds or credits would be at the discretion of Chalet Bluebell

More information will be made available to you when you arrive or can be provided on enquiry to us at any time.  We will be requiring all guests to regularly wash their hands and use the hand sanitisers available in and around the chalet and in all rooms.

We hope you have the confidence to book and come and stay with us this season.

This is our current policy and should there be any changes to the UK or French Government policies regarding COVID-19, our policy will be updated accordingly and apply from when the new Governments policies come into force.
