Paying with a Credit card
Accepted cards:  -VISA  via INGENICO
 -MASTERCARD  via INGENICO
 -AMEX
You pay "pay-per-link" for VISA and Mastercard For VISA and Mastercard we don't need your card number, expiry date etc. We will send you a mail with a link to a secure website for payment with your credit card.

For AMEX cards we need
  • Number of the card
  • Expiry date
  • Name as appears on card
  • Security code: the four figures on the fore side of the card.
Procedures payment: First complete and send the booking form of this website (www.ligneverte.eu).
We will ask you to p
hone or Skype us for the card-details (AMEX).
 

Payment of the deposit:

A deposit of  10% -payable in Euro- of the total amount is due after availability will have been checked by La Ligne Verte, or full amount if within 7 weeks of travel.

 

Payment of the outstanding balance:

Receipt of the final balance at the latest 7 weeks before departure. If you are paying by credit card we will let you know in advance we will be charging your credit card for the final balance.

 

Rates and Group discounts

Basic rates are prices per person with 2 persons sharing double or twin rooms; bags transfers included; bike rental not included in basic rate.
Solo all-in prices are prices for single travellers including single room supplement; bags transfers included; bike rental not included.

 

Group discounts are applicable only on the basic rates p.p. with 2 persons sharing room, but not on supplements for single rooms, extra nights, nor on bike rental or any other supplements. Group discounts apply to parties and families of 3 to 8 persons.
Group discounts
are indicated in a percentage of the basic rate and apply to every member of the party.
The applicable discount applies to payments that are made for the whole party with a maximum of three different credit cards.
For payments with 1 credit cards no administrative supplement will be charged. 
For payments with 2 credit cards an administrative supplement of € 20 will be charged to the second credit card. 
For payments with 3 credit cards an administrative supplement of € 20 will be charged to the second and to the third credit card. 
For payments with 4 or more credit cards no groups discounts will apply.

Moreover, cancelling of just one or more persons of the group will affect the total group-discount applicable (i.e. lower substantially for all the remaining members of the party).

So, if one of more persons of the group, originally booking together, have to cancel their trip we are not going to ask the remaining members of the party to pay extra for the difference. For this reason cancelling a trip (booked-with-group-discount) by one or more members of the party will cause an extra withholding (to the persons cancelling) relative to the new (i.e. lower) applicable discount percentage applicable to the remaining members of the party. The withholding will be a percentage of the basic rate to be settled with the refund due by La Ligne Verte.

Example: 5 persons book a trip with group discount of 12%.
Basic rate p.p. €1000,  with group discount € 880. Total paid (basic rates only): 5x 880 = 4400.
2 persons cancel their participation. Remaining members : 3, which will cause a new discount of 8%.
New price for the remaining members 3 x 1000 minus 8%= 3 x 920 = 2760
The remaining members had already paid 3 x 880 = 2640. Rests still to be paid: 2760-2640=120.
€120 will be hold in and settled with the cancellation refund due by La Ligne Verte to the persons cancelling.

"Cancelling-inclusion package" La Ligne Verte - valac

For all our budget, standard and plus trips in the Grands Causses area (and here only!) you can purchase our "cancelling-inclusion package" to cover the costs of any cancelling. For a supplement of 5% of the total costs of your trip with La Ligne Verte (not the costs of travelling to the first hotel of the trip) you can cancel your trip (not the travel costs) without having to state the grounds for doing so.

The cancelling-inclusion-package will result in a refund of 90% of your payment to La Ligne Verte - valac. These are the terms and conditions of this cancelling-inclusion package of La Ligne Verte - valac:

1. You may cancel your trip till 18:00 hour local time of  the day before the first night of the package. It is not possible to cancel the trip the first day of the package or during the trip.
2. To cancel you have to send an email to La Ligne Verte (
Contact) as well as phone La Ligne Verte B.V.  +31657602708 to inform La Ligne Verte of your cancelling.
3. You can cancel without having to state the grounds for doing so.
4. This cancelling-inclusion package of La Ligne Verte is not applicable on all trips. Excluded are trips in Dordogne, Cathars area, Corsica and Provence. Excluded are all superior and luxury packages. This "cancelling-inclusion" package is applicable only to budget, standard and plus trips in the Grands Causses area for groups up to 4 persons. With larger parties the cancelling-inclusion packages will apply to the 4 first members of the party. To all other group members our standard cancelling rules will apply.
5. La Ligne Verte will refund 90% of the money due (i.e. the total price of the trip) within 3 weeks after cancelling. The reimbursement of the money due will be balanced with the final balance or with the deposit.
6.
For example: If the costs of your cycling trip (bike rental included) and other supplements are €1000,-  this cycling package with the cancelling-inclusion package will cost you € 1050,-. If you send us an email you want to cancel the package the day before the first night of the package at 17:00 hr, informing La Ligne Verte of your cancelling the trip, you'll get a refund of € 945,- if you  already paid €1050 for the final balance.
If you paid the deposit of 10% only, there will be no further reimbursement. 
7.
 Reimbursement of 90% is only applicable if the total amount has been paid from no more than one credit card or bank-account. Reimbursement of payments with more than one credit card or from more than one bank-account will cause an extra fee of  €25 per extra credit card or bank-account, which will be reduced from the reimbursement due.
