Each new version replaces the old running. This new version is released on 01-09-2023. 




ALPIO BV is a Dutch company with its registered office at Sleepnetstraat 493, 2584 GD The Hague, The Netherlands. It is registered in the trade register of the Chamber of Commerce in The Hague under registration number 27305991. By using our websites and accepting the information provided by ALPIO BV for package holidays or self-arranged trips, travelers agree to abide by the general and special terms and conditions and declare full acceptance of all provisions herein. Some services, such as transportation, may be subject to special conditions, which travelers are urged to review.


Services acquired directly from service providers are not subject to these general and special conditions of sale. In such cases, ALPIO BV is not the contracting party. Please be aware that certain services, especially accommodation and equipment rentals, may require on-site deposits. For specific details, please contact the relevant service provider directly, as ALPIO BV assumes no responsibility or liability in this regard.




1.     When making a booking, a 30% down payment of the total agreed price is required. The remaining balance must be paid at least 30 days prior to departure. Failure to make timely payments may result in trip cancellation, and any amounts paid will not be refunded. Some travel and last-minute bookings (within 42 days of departure) may require full payment at the time of booking. For ad-hoc services such as charter flights, immediate payment of the entire reservation price is mandatory. In the case of last-minute bookings, travel documents may be sent under special conditions, and an additional fee may apply.


2.     Any booking constitutes an offer by the customer to enter into an agreement with ALPIO BV. The agreement between the traveler and ALPIO BV is finalized upon ALPIO BV's confirmation of the reservation via email or letter. The date of confirmation is considered the reservation date, establishing the commitment to payment of the purchase price.


3.     The primary booker is also responsible for the financial obligations arising from this agreement for fellow travelers.




1.     Prices listed on our websites are determined based on economic data, including transportation prices and exchange rates.


2.     ALPIO BV reserves the right to adjust prices for its products, either upwards or downwards, under the following circumstances:


·      Changes in exchange rates: When there is a fluctuation in exchange rates exceeding 3%, the resulting consequences will be reflected in all products and services.
·      Changes in transportation costs, taxes, and charges will be passed on to the traveler's price. Registered travelers will be notified by ALPIO BV via email or letter.


3.     Prices published on our websites represent minimum prices for specific dates and are based on maximum occupancy. However, availability is limited, and reservations are made in real-time. ALPIO BV advises that multiple users may attempt to book the same journey simultaneously. The first reservation takes precedence, and in cases where no more availability exists, travelers will be notified via email or letter. Alternative options will be offered, subject to availability. If the customer declines, a prompt refund will be issued.


4.     Agreed prices for a journey or stay are determined based on the number of nights. The length of stay includes the day of departure (from the time of convocation) and the day of return at the time of arrival. No claims can be made for fees when airline schedules result in the shortening of the first and/or last day due to late arrival or early departure. For certain on-site services, such as ski lifts, the day of departure and arrival is not included in the length of stay.


5.     Hotel and service descriptions are based on on-site visits, but changes may have occurred since the last update. ALPIO will make efforts to inform travelers of any such discrepancies upon reservation if the website has not been updated.


6.     For travelers using their own transportation, it is imperative to have international insurance and proper vehicle registration. ALPIO BV cannot be held responsible for delays caused by technical problems or traffic congestion during transportation, including resulting damages or expenses. This also includes cancellation costs resulting from late arrival at ports and/or hotels.


7.     For sports equipment rentals or games (e.g., ski, snowboard, games), a deposit is typically required and will be refunded upon the return of rented equipment in good condition.


8.     Regarding pets, ALPIO BV provides information on whether pets are allowed at accommodations and under what conditions (found under the 'Pets Allowed' heading on our sites). If such information is not provided, customers should assume that pets are not allowed or seek clarification from ALPIO before booking. ALPIO BV cannot be held responsible for any fees incurred for pets, regardless of whether they comply with the accommodation's description.


9.     Services reserved directly on-site, without ALPIO's intervention, are not covered by these general and special conditions of sale. ALPIO accepts no responsibility for additional charges or cancellation fees resulting from these services.


10. Not included in the price are costs such as passport fees, visas, vaccinations, cancellation insurance, travel assistance, snow insurance, beverages, optional excursions, gratuities, personal expenses (e.g., telephone, beverages, tourist taxes, airport services, airport transfers), and any services not listed in the booking confirmation.

12. Offers or discounts may not be applied retroactively. Customers cannot claim offers, discounts, or reductions published after the reservation date.
