To make a hotel reservation, use the on-line registration form which provides common interface to all conference administration services.
Please note that the on-line Accommodation Form is only accessible with a password. Simply fill in the Personal Data Form and password will be sent to you. Your password is the same for all on-line forms.
Reservations will be processed on a "first come, first-served" basis. Due to heavy demand and to the fact that distribution of rooms in many hotels is limited, accommodation cannot be guaranteed after March 3, 2009 although GUARANT International will make every effort to meet participants requirements.
Any reservation made after March 3, 2009 is a subject to availability.
All rates quoted are per room per night including breakfast and 9 % VAT. Should VAT change before the beginning of the Congress, the Congress Secretariat will automatically change the price of your hotel room and inform you in writing about the new rate. Extras are to be paid directly at the hotel reception before departure.
A one-night deposit is required to guarantee the reservation. After the first night deposit is received, your hotel reservation will be confirmed by e-mail. The remaining amount has to be paid directly to the hotel upon check-in/out.
A one-night deposit must be paid until March 3, 2009.
The following cancellation conditions apply to the cancellation of a hotel reservation:
|Cancellation before and on March 3, 2009:||full refund (less 30 EUR handling fee)|
|Cancellation after March 3, 2009:||one night cancellation fee|
|No show:||one night cancellation fee|
In case of no show – the room will be kept for the guest until 12 noon of the following day of expected day of arrival; the room will then be released.
Change of the date of arrival is possible until 12 noon prior to the scheduled arrival date. In case the request of a change is received after 12 noon, 1 night cancellation fee will be charged.
