THE CUSTOMER'S ATTENTION IS PARTICULARLY DRAWN TO THE PROVISIONS OF SERVICES, THE FACT THAT THE CUSTOMER WILL BE BOUND BY THE TERMS AND CONDITIONS OF THE PROVIDER OF THE PROPERTY AS DEFINED HEREIN.
White Blancmange acts as a travel agent for disclosed principals/tour operators, further details of which will be made available at the time of booking. Although monies for your holiday are paid via White Blancmange (the agent) your ‘contract’ will be with the principal/tour operator providing your accommodation (the provider). The contract is bound by the principal’s/tour operator’s terms and conditions.
We are occasionally asked by our clients if we are members of ATOL, ABTA or similar such tourism authorities. We appreciate our clients intend to spend a substantial amount of money and we understand why they would seek this assurance. However, it is important to note that White Blancmange acts as directory and agent to all the chalets on our website. When booking a chalet with White Blancmange you will then enter into a contractual agreement with the chalet owner or operator, not White Blancmange. For all bookings, your contract will be with the provider of the arrangements. The terms and conditions of the provider of your confirmed arrangements will apply to your booking. Copies of these conditions will be given to you on confirmation of the booking and you will be asked to read and sign the outlined contract.
IMPORTANT NOTE ON RATES/PRICES
When you make a booking directly with a chalet operator you will pay the exact same rate as you would when booking the chalet through White Blancmange. All operators and agents list the same rental prices and we do not charge any additional fees for assisting in finding you the perfect property for your luxury holiday.
Where requested we will be happy to provide information and details on an operators travel insurance for any property you may be interested in booking. The vast majority of our luxury ski chalet operators do have one of the following bonds, meaning they will automatically take responsibility for your whole holiday, giving you 100% financial security.
When you book an ATOL protected holiday, you should be given an ATOL Certificate by your travel company as soon as you pay over any money for the holiday - even if this is only a deposit. Your ATOL Certificate is proof that the holiday you have booked is protected by the ATOL scheme. Your ATOL Certificate will also tell you what to do if your travel company stops operating. Read the full terms of the Air Travel Trust Payment Policy. Keep your ATOL Certificate somewhere safe and take it on holiday so you know how to make an ATOL claim if you need to.
