Online payment by bank card allows you to book your stay online and immediately confirm.

The customer communicates his bank details as a guarantee of the reservation except special conditions or rates, by credit or private bank card (Visa, Mastercard, American Express, Diners Club ... according to the possibilities offered by the establishment's reservation platform) by directly indicating, in the area provided for this purpose (secure entry by SSL encryption), the card number, without spaces between the digits, as well as its validity date (it is specified that the bank card used must be valid at time of consumption of the service) and the visual cryptogram.

In the event of a no show (reservation not cancelled - customer not present) of a reservation guaranteed by credit card, the establishment will charge the customer, as a lump sum, for the amount indicated in its general conditions and special conditions of sale.
