  1. RESERVATIONS

2.1 Basecamp Eco-resorts only accepts reservations from persons who are 18 years of age or older. Reservations by persons younger than that age are therefore not legally valid.

2.2 Basecamp Eco-resorts reserves the right to reject deviant reservations, for example, from young people or groups, without giving reasons, or to attach special conditions to them.

2.3 If Basecamp Eco-resorts accepts your reservation, Basecamp Eco-resorts will send you a reservation confirmation along with an invoice within 24 hours after the reservation is made. You must check this immediately upon receipt for accuracy. Any inaccuracies must be immediately communicated to Basecamp Eco-resorts.

2.4 If you do not receive a reservation confirmation/invoice within 24 hours after making the reservation, you must contact the reservation department immediately, failing which no claim can be made on the reservation.

2.5 An agreement between you and Basecamp Eco-resorts is concluded when Basecamp Eco-resorts confirms the reservation to you.

2.6 The agreement concerns the rental of accommodations and/or other facilities for recreational use of a short-term nature. The agreement may also concern the rental of accommodation and/or other facilities, possibly in combination with certain services provided by Basecamp Eco-resorts, for business use of a short-term nature, for example, for holding a business event.

2.7 The rental and/or right to use accommodation and/or other facilities expires automatically without any notification as soon as the period for rental and/or use agreed upon in the confirmation ends.

  1. CHANGES TO THE AGREEMENT

3.1 If you wish to make changes to the agreement after its conclusion, Basecamp Eco-resorts is not obliged to accept them. It is at the discretion of Basecamp Eco-resorts to determine whether and to what extent these changes are accepted. In case Basecamp Eco-resorts accepts your changes, Basecamp Eco-resorts will charge you change fees. Cancellations are subject to the cancellation conditions as described in article 14 of these General Terms and Conditions.

  1. PRICES

5.1 You are liable to Basecamp Eco-resorts for the agreed rental price, as stated in the reservation confirmation along with the invoice. To avoid misunderstandings: the ‘rental price’ may also include costs for services provided by Basecamp Eco-resorts.

  1. PAYMENTS

7.1 Upon reservation, you have the option to make payment of the rental fee directly via iDeal or provide your credit card details. If you choose to finalize the reservation with a credit card, the credit card will not be charged until 3 days before arrival.

7.2 If upon arrival at the park it appears that the rental fee amount has not yet been fully credited to Basecamp Eco-resorts’ bank account, you must (or any remaining part of it) pay the rental fee on the spot. In the absence of payment as described above, Basecamp Eco-resorts may deny you the use of the accommodation and/or other facilities. If it later transpires that a valid payment instruction was given by you, but the amount is credited to Basecamp Eco-resorts’ bank account after arrival, any overpayment will be refunded afterward.

7.3 In case of non-timely payment of the invoiced amounts, you will be in default immediately after the expiration of the payment term mentioned in the invoice. In that case, Basecamp Eco-resorts may offer you the opportunity to pay the outstanding amount within 7 days, failing which you will be immediately in default. If payment is not made, Basecamp Eco-resorts reserves the right to terminate (cancel) the agreement from the day the default occurs, and you are liable for all damages that Basecamp Eco-resorts suffers or will suffer as a result, including all costs that Basecamp Eco-resorts has had to incur in connection with your reservation and the termination, including losses suffered by Basecamp Eco-resorts. Basecamp Eco-resorts has the right to charge cancellation costs per accommodation in any case. In that case, the provisions of article 14 apply.

7.4 Basecamp Eco-resorts always has the right to offset any claims against you for any reason with amounts paid by you for any reason or with amounts that Basecamp Eco-resorts may owe you.
