Additional contractual conditions can be contractually agreed at the contract level of the respective landlord, these are referred to as “parking conditions” for clarification. These additional parking conditions apply, insofar as they have been effectively agreed, in addition to these General Terms and Conditions. In the event of contradictions between these GTC and the additional parking conditions of the respective lessor, the additional parking conditions take precedence over these GTC.

1.2 In these GTC, the term "tenant" refers to the person who enters into an agreement with the landlord for the temporary rental/use of accommodation or a campsite for recreational and holiday purposes. The term "user" refers to those persons who are staying in the accommodation together with the tenant.

1.3 The contract is concluded between the tenant and the respective landlord named in the offer and in the booking confirmation. These terms and conditions apply regardless of whether the renter refers to any of their own terms and conditions or to other terms and conditions. Lessor rejects all Terms and Conditions to which Renter refers or which are used by Renter.

1.4 Agreements that deviate from these GTC must be in text form.

Reservations (booking requests)

2.1 The landlord only processes reservations, ie booking inquiries from people aged 18 and over. Reservations made by persons under this age limit are therefore irrelevant and will not be processed.

Changes to the contract (transfers)
