Prices & Payment Policies
Prices are valid at the time you receive our confirmation of rates and availability.
Our default currency is the EURO, however some hotel’s rates are posted in their local currency. Exchange rates shown by our system are based on the value relation between that currency and the Euro on that given day. We can not be held responsible for fluctuations in currency values.
Rates published are inclusive of taxes and government fees but services and amenities included vary. READ carefully the notes or individual terms and conditions that appear specifically on the page where you submit your reservation. Please Note: In the event that you delay confirmation, the same prices and availability may no longer apply.
Our company reserves the right to change the advertised prices at any time without any prior notice. The company cannot be held responsible in the event that the service has provided inaccurate or incomplete information. If such errors are brought to our attention we will take action to correct them.

The charge that will appear on your credit card statement may appear as having been made by either Finesthotels.net OR the company that operates the hotel you have chosen. This depends on individual hotel payment policies. If the hotel charges your card directly you will be informed as to how the company name will appear on your statement.
