– instructions as to where to obtain the key and also the location of the cottage
– cottage rental terms and conditions, as well as information about additional service fees.
– a bank transfer form for the advance booking fee, final payment and payment for possible additional services.

The booking is confirmed when the client has paid the advance booking fee or made full payment by the due date. Booking fee is 30 % of rent fee. The person making the reservation must be of legal age. The person paying for the reservation, or person named by him orr her, is responsible for compliance with the rental conditions. In case of company being the costumer, the responsible person is named contact person. It is forbidden to rent the cottage to third party.


The advance booking fee must be paid by the due date. The final payment must be paid by the stated due date or at least six weeks before the start of the rental period.

Should the reservation be made within six weeks of the start of the rental period, down- payment will not be required but the full payment of rent and possible additional services should be made by the due date. Should the total of the invoice be less than 250 euro, the full amount must be paid within 10 days of the invoice date. The customer must, if necessary, present a reliable proof of payment. The cottage rental charges and the additional service charges include VAT.

All the objections and questions conserning the invoice should be made within 7 days of the date of the invoice. If the client does not comply with the terms of payment, LeppäLomat are entitled to hold the rental agreement canceled.


All cancellations must be made in writing. The cancellation is only valid when it has been received by LeppäLomat.

Should the client be able to show that the cancellation has been made in writing and sent to the right address in time, the cancellation will be accepted even though it is delayed or does not arrive at all. Advance payments and possible administration costs will be retained by LeppäLomat or possible agent involved.

Should the cancellation occur within 21 days of the start of the rental period, the total hire charge will become payable together with the costs of any additional services. Should, however, the cottage be subsequently hired out to another client for that period then the rent fee will be returned together with payments made for additional services, minus 80 euros cancellation fee.

Should the client himself or someone from the same household become ill, become involved in an accident or die, the client is entitled to refund of the amount paid minus the cancellation fee and any other administration costs. Cancellation in these circumstances should be made immediately to LeppäLomat and proof of cause of cancellation should be given e.g. doctor’s certificate.

Cancellations made during the rental period will not be accepted or refunded. Should the client change the reservation this shall be treated in accordance with the previously stated cancellation procedures. During the rental period we suggest that the costumer has valid travel insurance that includes cancelation insurance. The cottage owner or agent can cancel reservations in a force majeure situation. In this case the client is entitled to refund of total amount paid.
