Some NOMAD HOTELS have their own rules and regulations for customers. The customer accepts and undertakes to abide by said rules and regulations. If the customer fails to abide by any of the provisions of these rules and regulations, the hotelier will be obliged to ask the customer to leave the establishment without any compensation and/or any reimbursement if payment has already been made.

Tourist tax, shown on the rates page, shall be paid on-site directly to the hotel, with the exception of online prepayments where this amount may be included.
Prices take account of the VAT applicable on the day of the reservation and any change to the applicable VAT rate will automatically be reflected in the prices shown on the billing date.
Any change to or introduction of new legal or regulatory taxes imposed by the competent authorities will be automatically reflected in the prices shown on the billing date.
Foreign currency conversions are given as guidance only and are non-binding. Only the currency confirmed the time of reservation is guaranteed (if this currency is different from the one used at the hotel, the conversion fees will be charged to the customer).
If the quoted rate states that payment is to be made on arrival at or departure from the hotel, and the customer’s currency is not the same as the hotel’s, the rate charged by the hotel may be different to the rate that was indicated when the booking was made. The new rate will take account of any changes in exchange rate that have occurred between the date the booking was made and the dates of the hotel stay.
NOMAD HOTELS S.A. shall indicate the total order amount when the customer confirms the reservation.
Prices may be increased by different taxes depending on the city/country. The customer agrees to pay these different taxes, without challenging NOMAD HOTELS S.A.
Certain promotional offers available online are sold exclusively on the website, i.e. they cannot be bought at the hotel itself.
Unless under special conditions or if the customer has received a special rate, customers shall provide their bank details as a guarantee of the reservation.
They shall use a credit card or loyalty card for this purpose (Visa, MasterCard, etc. depending on the hotel selected), indicating the following information in the area provided for this purpose (secure entry by SSL encryption): the card number without spaces, its expiration date and the card security code, in order to make the pre-payment via the Ogone/Ingenico Payment Services platform.
Payment is debited at the hotel during the customer’s stay, unless under special conditions or if the customer has received a special rate whereby the payment is made at the reservation stage (online pre-payment on certain rates). This pre-payment is classified as a deposit. Where the rate is not prepaid online, the hotel can request that the customer provides a deposit or allows them to debit the credit card upon arrival. This allows the hotel to guarantee that amounts corresponding to services used at the hotel are paid.
In the event of a no-show (reservation not cancelled – customer did not arrive) when the reservation is guaranteed by bank card, the cost of the first night will be debited as a fixed indemnity from the card specified by the customer in the reservation guarantee. Any additional nights which have been booked shall be cancelled and payment for these shall not be taken unless otherwise indicated in the sale conditions for the reserved rate.
NOMAD HOTELS S.A. has chosen OGONE/ Ingenico Payment Services (Payment Service Provider) to secure card payments made online. The validity of the customer’s payment card is verified by Ogone/ Ingenico Payment Services.
Payment cards may be refused for a number of reasons: stolen or blocked card, credit limit reached, incorrect details entered. In the event of a problem, the customer should contact their bank first and then contact the hotel to confirm the reservation and payment method.
At the time of prepayment, the amount debited for the reservation includes: the price of the accommodation, taxes relating to the accommodation, the price of catering if breakfast is selected, taxes relating to catering and any other additional services selected by the customer.
If a rate is subject to online prepayment, the amount paid in advance (the deposit) is debited when the reservation is made.
Some hotels can generate invoices electronically, in which case the original version will be certified and available online as soon as the reservation has been made.
