If something goes wrong
If the whole or a part of a booking cannot be delivered in accordance with the booking confirmation and if no alternative arrangements can be offered (such as those that do not differ significantly from what was booked e.g., hotels or cottages in the same class), the Visitor has the right to cancel. The Visitor is then reimbursed payments made, reduced by the value of those parts of the booking that may have already been used, as well as the cancellation insurance, amendment fees and booking fees. If the Visitor has complaints, they must be addressed to DLK within three days of arrival. Problems that occur during the stay must be reported immediately, initially to e.g., the hotel or cottage caretaker. If the Visitor fails to seek redress during the rental period and thus does not give the hotel/caretaker the opportunity to rectify the possible problem, the Visitor may not later seek alternative arrangements. If the Visitor is still not satisfied with the compensation/alternative arrangements, this should be notified in writing within 30 days of departure. If an agreement is not reached the Visitor may then address themselves to Allmänna Reklamationsnämnden (Board of Consumer Complaints). This comprises an impartial chairperson and representatives from travel agencies and consumers. The Board’s address is: Box 174, 101 23 Stockholm.

- The Visitor receives a written confirmation on booking.
- The Visitor receives documents and other information in good time.
- Services purchased comply with descriptions. DLK is not responsible for promises that the owner or the contact person makes directly to the Visitor without DLK’s knowledge or that DLK has not been made aware of. (If the Visitor comes to an arrangement on something that is not covered by the agreement with the organiser, they must ensure it is in writing and signed by the owner or contact person).

- The Visitor is responsible for control and acquisition of travel insurance via their home insurance or insurance companies.

The Personal Information Act
By making payment the Visitor agrees that personal information may be used by DLK. The purpose of this is to facilitate the normal guest administration, to ensure that DLK has access to reliable personal documentation in the event of an accident, to comply with the conditions of cancellation insurance as well as management and treatment of any injuries. The data may also be used to distribute information on insurance and payment services as well as travel-related deals. In the case of on-line bookings, customers receive by e-mail their confirmation and a follow-up questionnaire after departure. Guest’s opinions and answers are of great help to us. As a guest, the Visitor can at any time choose to say no to mail-shots and unsubscribe to news letters, this should be done in writing to DLK.
In the case where an agreed item is not provided due to an occurrence outwith the control of the organiser that the organiser could not have foreseen where the agreement is terminated and the consequences could not reasonably have been avoided or overcome, the organiser is free from liability for damages or other penalties. The same also applies if the agreed item is cancelled due to someone hired by the organiser now or at a previous time. We reserve our rights with regard to legislative changes and price changes beyond our control.
