How to make a hotel reservation

To make a hotel reservation, it is necessary to fill in the Online Accommodation Form

Please note that the Online Accommodation Form is only accessible with a password. Simply fill in the Personal Data Form and a password will be sent to you. Your password is the same for all online forms.

Reservations will be processed on a “first come, first-served” basis. Due to heavy demand and the fact that distribution of rooms in many hotels is limited, please book your accommodation as soon as possible.    

All rates quoted are per room per night including breakfast and 15% 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.

Reservation confirmation

A one-night deposit is required to guarantee the reservation. After the payment 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 June 30, 2017.   

Cancellations, changes and refunds

Please inform GUARANT International about any amendments or cancellations in writing by e-mail  or fax +420 284 001 448. Telephone amendments will not be accepted.

Date of delivery of your written cancellation to the Congress Secretariat will be considered as the date of cancellation.

Please do not contact the hotel directly for any reservation changes or cancellations. The appropriate refunds will be made after the congress.

Cancellation conditions 

The following cancellation conditions apply to the cancellation of a hotel reservation:

Standard Rates

Cancellation before and on June 30, 2017:   full refund (less 30 EUR handling fee)

Please note, that for shortening of your hotel reservation after check-in 100% of all cancelled room nights will be charged.  

In case of a no show, the room will be kept for the guest until 12 noon of the day following the date of expected arrival; then the room will be released.

Change of the arrival date has to be announced to the Congress Secretariat no later than 2 days prior your arrival, otherwise one-night cancellation fee will be charged.

Congress Secretariat will process all reservation requests by July 28, 2017 or at the registration desk on site.

Please note that for any refund we reserve the right to charge 30 EUR handling fee.

Methods of payment

1. Credit card

For payment by credit card please use the Online Payment System. The system is accessible with the password that you received upon registration. The system accepts the following credit cards: MasterCard/Eurocard, Visa and Diners Club.

2. Bank transfer

The bank details including the 10-digit variable symbol will be sent to a participant within three working days after the submission of the registration form. Please note that payments without this variable symbol will not be identified and the registration will not be confirmed.
