Destination Florence Booking guide
To book on Destination Florence you need only give the details of the credit card “as guarantee” and you will receive directly a voucher to be presented on your arrival at the hotel. Everything avoiding wasting unnecessary time and from the comfort of your own home.
The system allows direct on-line booking of your accommodation at one of the many accommodation facilities available through the site, 24 hours a day.
Each hotel, residence and flat is presented with an information sheet which gives a description of the hotel, the category, location, prices and services available.
The computer system automatically calculates the total price for the stay, bearing in mind the number of persons, the length of the stay, the board arrangements requested and any reductions and supplements. You need only choose the accommodation which most appeals to you and insert the data required.
At the time of the on-line booking the client must insert his credit card data as guarantee. The inserted personal details and credit card data are protected by the Digital Certificate SSL (Secure Socket Layer). The reservation is confirmed at the receiving of the voucher by e-mail from Destination Florence. The total amount of the accommodation must be paid in situ before departure. For “non-refundable” rooms the total price of the booking will be charged on the day of booking and will not be refunded. On the voucher, which must be presented on arrival at the hotel, are indicated the accommodation and board arrangements foreseen together with the relative prices, a plan of the location and the information necessary to contact the accommodation facility booked.
At the departure must be paid all extras, other services requested on the spot or anything not specifically indicated in the voucher. The total price does not include the city tax imposed by the city. Where it is requested, it must be paid from the client directly to the hotel.
The official classification is assigned by the provincial Tourist Office. Hotels are awarded from 1 to 5S stars, while residences and apartments are assigned to categories from IV to II, on the basis of the general quality of the buildings, facilities and services provided.
