There is the possibility of a minimum exchange rate difference, which will be charged from the client’s account.
In order to firmly confirm the created booking request, the client has to pay the advance according to the issued pro forma invoice.
The remaining amount up to the total amount of the booking can be paid by the client in the following ways:
- in cash, directly to the service provider on the day of arrival,
- by bank transfer to Boho Travel Art’s account, at least one month prior to the arrival.

If the client is obliged to pay the total amount of the booking to Boho Travel ARt (in cases when it is not possible to pay the remaining amount directly to the service provider, as well as bookings of hotel) and there are less than 30 days left till the arrival date, the client is obliged to pay 100% of total booking amount when confirming the booking.
The client will be informed of the exact amount and the payment method of the advance when sending the pro forma invoice.
If the client decides to pay the requested amount by bank transfer, he is obliged to forward to us the copy of the bank transfer immediately upon realization of the payment.

7. CONTENT AND PRICE OF THE PURCHASED SERVICES
The prices vary depending on the accommodation facility. The prices are specified for each accommodation unit. Prices are quoted in Euros (€). The equivalent value in Kuna of the paid services will be stated on the invoice. The advertised prices for accommodation in the hotel include only those services which are described in the chosen accommodation unit offer. The advertised prices for the private accommodation include: daily rental of the accommodation units, bed linen, kitchen equipped with the necessary dishes and cutlery (except when the accommodation unit booked is a room without the use of kitchen) gas, water and electricity expenses (except for ‘Robinson Crusoe style’ type of accommodation).
Additional services are services that are provided in the accommodation unit, but are not included in the rental price (such as use of air conditioning, brought pets, food services, use of washing machine, boat rental, berth place for the boat, etc.). The client pays for them additionally and only if he/she uses those services. If we are in the possession of the price list of additional services, it will be sent to you upon the request. Most of the additional services the client must pay directly to the service provider, while some of them will be paid when confirming the booking.
While most services are optional, there are some mandatory services (e.g. special transportation to the accommodation facility by boat, etc.) which are paid by the client on the spot directly to the service provider.
Considering the fact that the availability of the accommodation may depend on additional services (such as food services, pets, the use of additional beds, etc.), and since the additional services may not always be available (e.g. boat rental, the use of the Internet, berth place for boats, etc.), the client is obliged to report all desired additional services when creating the booking request.
In some rare cases the client will have to pay before starting to use the rented accommodation a cash deposit directly to the service provider. This deposit is a guarantee for the service provider that the client will not cause any damages to the accommodation unit or its contents. On the day of departure the entire deposit amount will be refunded to you, but only after the service provider has previously determined, that the client has left the rented accommodation in the same condition in which he has found it at the check-in.
You will be informed about all the mandatory surcharges, the exact prices of the desired services and possible cash deposits, as well as their payment methods, when sending the pro forma invoice.
Boho Travel Art reserves the right to change the prices until the moment the pro forma invoice is sent to the client. By sending the proforma invoice, we guarantee that the booked accommodation is available according to the price calculated in the pro forma invoice.
All the prices refer to a stay in the accommodation unit longer than three nights. For a stay of 3 days or less, the prices increase according to the following percentages:
- Three nights – the prices increase by 30,00%.
- Two nights – the prices increase by 40,00%.
- One night – the prices increase by 50,00%.
8. SERVICE CATEGORIZATION AND DESCRIPTION
The offered accommodation units are described according to the official categorization of the local tourist board at the time of the work permit issuance, and according to the current conditions of the accommodation unit gaven upon the owner statement.
The standards of accommodation, food and other services of different places and countries vary and are not suitable for comparison.
The allocation of rooms/apartments in hotels is determined by the hotel reception. If the client has not specifically agreed upon a room/apartment with special features, the client will accept any room/apartment allocated to him/her in accordance with the voucher.
Boho Travel Art guarantees that the service provider will make sure that the kitchen in every accommodation unit is equipped with corresponding dishes and cutlery required for the number of the people staying in the unit. Upon client’s arrival accommodation unit must be clean and tidy with clean bed linen. Bed linen are being changed on a weekly basis for clients staying longer than one week. The service provider is under no obligation to provide towels to the client.
The time of arrival at the accommodation unit is after 2:00 PM, and the time of departure on the last day of the booking is no later than 10:00 AM. The previously specified rule helps avoiding that the clients from the same accommodation unit meet when the dates of departure of the previous clients and of the arrival of the new clients are overlapping. 4 hours are needed by the accommodation service provider for cleaning and preparing the accommodation unit for the next clients.
The keys are given to the client by the service provider personally at the accommodation unit or at the check-in address if it varies from the address of the property.
9. BOHO TRAVEL ART’S RIGHT TO CHANGES AND CANCELLATION
We are entitled to suggest the change of a booked accommodation or cancel it completely or partially, if unexpected circumstances which cannot be avoided or removed and are related strictly to the booked accommodation (e.g. sanitary problems, etc.) occur prior to or during the vacation period. If these circumstances occurred at the time of advertising and selling the accommodation arrangement, Boho Travel Art would have considered them a legitimate reason not to advertise the offer and consequently not to accept booking confirmations for those accommodation units.
If we are in a position to offer you an alternative accommodation, the change of the booked accommodation can be made only with your approval. If the alternative accommodation unit price is lower than that of the cancelled one, we undertake to refund the price difference to you and to bear in that case the bank charges. If the alternative accommodation unit price is higher than the cancelled one, we are entitled to charge you for the price difference.
Boho Travel Art is obliged to inform all the clients who have confirmed their arrival by paying the advance of any changes of the booking or cancellation, immediately upon the occurrence of the unexpected circumstances. If the Agency is not able to find an alternative accommodation, it is obliged to refund the amount paid for the booking to the client and the Agency will bear for that the bank charges. In case of refund of the paid amount, the client is not entitled to claim the compensation of any other additional costs related to his booking.
10. THE CLIENT’S RIGHT TO CHANGE AND CANCELLATION
The client can change an already confirmed booking only if the change is accepted by the service provider. The changes may include: change of the holder of booking, booked dates, number of persons, age of persons, type of basic or extra services booked and payment process. The request for a change of the booking must be submitted in written form (by e-mail, fax or by mail). The client agrees to pay for the specified changes a flat amount which is charged per change (per new calculation) and depends on the date when we receive the written request for change of booking parameters:

If the client does not arrive at the booked accommodation until 08:00 PM on the day of the booked service start, while he has not informed Boho Travel Art nor the service provider of his possible delay, the booking will be considered as cancelled on the day of arrival. In such case the cancellation costs will be charged according to the above scale.

Boho Travel Art will offer the client for the new booking a special discount of 10% of the cancelled booking’s amount.
