To do so, you must insert your card number and the expiry date and security code in the spaces provided. Please note that the card used must still be valid at the time of your stay.
- If the conditions applicable to your booking allow you to cancel or change it: The hotel will take out a pre-authorisation on your credit card to guarantee your booking. In this case, you will pay for your stay on arrival. (Pre-authorisation is taken using e-payment software; it is a straightforward bank guarantee)

Your booking will only become firm and final after availability has been confirmed electronically and after pre-authorisation has been taken and/or prepayment has been made by bank card.
If your bank card is invalid, or if the pre-authorisation or prepayment via our e-payment system fails, your booking will be automatically, immediately and officially cancelled.
On arrival at the hotel you must present the same card you used to guarantee or prepay your stay. The hotel may also ask you for proof of identity to guard against credit card fraud.

CANCELLATION POLICY AND CHARGES
Bookings which may be cancelled or changed by you
If you want to cancel or change your booking, you must send your request in writing (e-mail, fax, post, etc.).
You can cancel without incurring cancellation charges up to 48 hours before your scheduled arrival date. Thereafter, the establishment will charge you for the cost of the first night’s stay.
If you simply do not turn up on your scheduled arrival day (‘no-show’), the establishment will charge you for the cost of your first night’s stay.
The establishment will use the card that you provided when you made your booking to collect the relevant cancellation charges as per the specific terms and conditions of sale.
Any invoice not contested within seven days of receipt will be deemed to have been accepted unreservedly insofar as the total amount and payment methods are concerned. If you want to make a substantial change to your booking (e.g. arrival/departure dates, length of stay, type of accommodation, etc.), resulting in a reduction in the total cost of your booking, this will be treated as a cancellation and new booking, and cancellation charges will apply as appropriate to the original booking.
Bookings which cannot be cancelled or changed by you
The hotel may make special offers for which no cancellations or changes can be accepted.
Bookings which require prepayment cannot be changed or cancelled. The sums paid for these bookings are non-refundable. On arrival at the hotel, you will be given a receipt for the sum charged to your card.
Any invoice not contested within seven days of receipt will be deemed to have been accepted unreservedly insofar as the total amount and payment methods are concerned.

CURTAILING YOUR STAY
If you curtail your stay, the full cost will be charged to your bank card, through our electronic payment system. If your booking was prepaid, no refund will be made for the unused portion of your stay.
EXTENDING YOUR STAY
If you want to extend your stay, you must send a written request to: email@example.com
Subject to availability, we will extend your stay and send you a confirmation e-mail by return. Final confirmation will be sent after we receive payment for the additional nights. However, if the new rate implies a lower daily rate, this will only apply from the first night of the extended portion of your stay.
Changes by us
If exceptional circumstances or a case of force majeure means that we are unable to provide you with the room you booked, the Hotel Provinces Opéra*** reserves the right to protect your booking for part or all of your stay at a hotel of an equivalent category and providing services of the same nature.
Any surcharge for the new room and the cost of transport between the two hotels will be paid for by the hotel you originally booked. Any extras will be paid for by you.

The hotel may withdraw from its obligations or temporarily suspend them if it is prevented from fulfilling them by circumstances that are independent of its will and beyond its control, as well as in cases of force majeure. Such circumstances include: total or partial destruction of the hotel, industrial action, catastrophe, fire, internal or external technical incident, and generally any circumstances that prevent the hotel from properly providing the service due.
