———— Update 8/5/20 ————
Please find our standard terms and conditions below.
We are being kept updated by the Morzine Tourist Office and we are hopeful that summer season will run as planned. As we see how things unfold, we have introduced some new terms for Summer 2020:
SUMMER 2020 EXISTING BOOKINGS (All Summer 2020 bookings made before 15/3/20)
The final balance payment due date to 4 weeks prior to your arrival in Morzine. We will be in touch with all bookings prior to this date with an update from resort.
If final booking payments are unpaid by 4 weeks prior to arrival, this will be treated as a cancellation (as per our terms and conditions).
Booking deposits remain non refundable, however if at final balance due date, UK and/or French travel restrictions remain in place*, guests are invited to move the booking to later Summer 2020 dates. This will be arranged directly.
As per Section 8 in our below terms and conditions, it is a condition of booking that you have adequate travel insurance to cover you for the period while you are on holiday at Treeline Chalets. This means you should have adequate insurance in case of cancellation and you need to speak to your travel insurance provider if you decide to cancel.
NEW SUMMER 2020 BOOKINGS (All bookings made from 1/5/20):
For any new summer 2020 booking, we are offering a 100% refund policy in the event of cancellation due to COVID–19 travel restrictions*.
Please note if your original flight is cancelled, but other travel options are available, you will not be able to receive a full refund if you choose to cancel.
* FCO/French Government advises against travel to Morzine or France or Europeans borders are closed for non essential travel.
NEW WINTER 2020/21 BOOKINGS (All bookings made from 27/4/20)
Due to the current uncertainty, for new Winter 20/21 bookings up until 1st September 2020, we are offering a free cancellation or amendment option to give peace of mind. This term will apply up until 1st September 2020 and we are hoping that before then, we will know more about the current situation. We will be in touch before this date, then you can either agree to our updated terms and conditions, make an amendment (subject to availability) or get your deposit fully refunded if you do not wish to continue with your booking.
We reserve the right to withdraw this offer at any time.

These are the terms and conditions for Treeline Chalets Ltd. Treeline Chalets Ltd company no. 6941877 is registered in England and Wales at DELL FARM, DIRTHAM LANE, EFFINGHAM, LEATHERHEAD, KT24 5SE, UNITED KINGDOM.
The terms and conditions of this document together with your holiday booking confirmation received by email, comprise your agreement between Treeline Chalets Ltd and all those listed on the booking form. No contract exists until payment of deposit is received and processed.
Once Treeline Chalets Ltd has confirmed availability and sent the booking confirmation email, they will hold the accommodation for a period of 7 days, in which time they must receive a deposit of 30% of the total amount or £150 for each person in the party (whichever is more). The total amount outstanding must then be paid in full 10 weeks prior to the arrival date. If the booking is made less than 10 weeks prior to arrival date then the full amount is due at the time of booking. It is your responsibility to check all details on your booking form at time of booking and inform Treeline Chalets of any mistakes or discrepancies. If for some reason you decide to change your flight details you must inform Treeline Chalets immediately and there may be an administrative charge to cover for pre-made arrangements by Treeline Chalets. The group leader is fully responsible for himself/herself and all other members of the group for all matters relating to the booking, thus he/she will be personally responsible for all monies outstanding from the members listed on the booking form. If there is, for any reason, a change to the group leader or a change in the party members, Treeline Chalets must be notified straight away and updated booking form must be signed off.
The catered weekly prices stated are for 7 nights accommodation, breakfast for 7 mornings (2 self-serve), afternoon tea and evening meal with wine for 5 nights (2 staff days off). Lunch is not provided. The self-catered weekly prices stated are for 7 nights accommodation.

4. AMENDMENTS TO YOUR BOOKING
If you wish to change your booking we will do our very best to accommodate the change, but we cannot guarantee that we will be able to do so.
Deposit payments of 30% are required on booking. An invoice for the final balance will be sent to you 12 weeks prior to your arrival date showing the remainder of the balance due on your holiday. This must be paid no less than 10 weeks prior to your arrival date. If the final balance is not received within 10 weeks of your arrival date, Treeline Chalets reserves the rights to cancel the booking and any deposits paid will be forfeited. We will make every effort to contact you within this period but if payment is not made, Treeline Chalets reserves the right to re-book the chalet without further notice. In the event of a dishonoured payment the group leader will be contacted and asked to make payment by other means, failure to do this will result in the booking being cancelled.
6. CANCELLATION BY Treeline Chalets Ltd
Treeline Chalets reserves the right to make alterations or cancel a booking entirely and refund all monies paid. Whilst Treeline Chalets will endeavour to make every effort that this does not happen, if it is completely unavoidable, Treeline Chalets will contact the group leader immediately. If this does happen we will endeavour to make alternative arrangements for the same value for accommodation if available or offer a full refund. Treeline Chalets accepts no legal liability and will pay no other compensation. No form of compensation or refund will be paid if a cancellation is caused by events amounting to Force Majeure (Force Majeure such as warfare, riots, civil unrest, terrorist activity, industrial dispute, weather, lack of snow, road closures, including access roads to Morzine, epidemics, natural or technical disasters, nuclear war or similar events out with our control.)
7. CANCELLATION BY YOU THE CUSTOMER
