Service provider's right to cancel a reservation
The camping area is not responsible for a reservation cancellation due to force majeure. In this case, the customer has the right to be reimbursed for the possible payment for accommodations made in advance. The service provider's liability is limited to reimbursing only the paid amount, and there is no obligation to provide a compensatory object. In a force majeure case, the service provider may offer to change the reservation, to the extent possible, to another form of accommodation as an alternative to cancelling the reservation.
