GENERAL RENTAL CONDITIONS
The current general rental conditions (hereafter named the “GRC”) are concluded exclusively between the Rental Store and any Customer making a Reservation through the Website.
The confirmation of a Reservation by a Customer on the Website implies the Customer’s entire accordance and acceptance of the GRC.

The Customer declares being at least 18 years old and has the legal capacity to buy from the Website. The Company reserves the right to refuse a Reservation if there are on-going prior litigious circumstances or an unusually high level of reservations.
Art 2: EQUIPMENT
The winter sports equipment that is available for Reservation on the Website is described on the Website as being a type of category of material available and under no circumstances must this be understood as being a specific model. The general characteristics of each of the available categories are explained on the Website and sometimes there are several examples of equipment that corresponds to each one of these categories. The examples of the materials are given purely as an indication and have no contractual value.
Art 3: PRICE
The rental prices corresponding to the Reservation are determined according to the type of material reserved, the chosen period of location and the date that the Reservation was made.
Art 4: WAYS OF MAKING A RESERVATION
A Reservation on the Website can be made at any point up to 1 day before the start of the requested rental period.
When a Reservation is made through the Website, the Customer chooses the category of material that he/she intends to reserve.
After selecting the material, the Customer will be requested to confirm his/her Reservation.
A 10% deposit is necessary to confirm and the Reservation that the Customer has requested on the Website.
Only after receiving validation by the central network of banking cards concerning the payment of the deposit can the Reservation undertaken by the Customer on the Website be accepted.
Art 5: CONDITIONS FOR PAYING
When the Customer confirms his/her Reservation made using the Website, he/she must pay a 10% deposit of the total amount of the rental price (all taxes included), hereafter named the “Deposit”, to the Rental Store.
The balance of the rental price will be paid by the Customer directly to the Rental Store at the time of the collect.
Art 6: WAYS OF PAYING THE BALLANCE
The Reservation is only confirmed and recorded after the payment of the Deposit.
The deposit is payable exclusively on the Internet by credit card or through PayPal with secure payment.
The payment can only be considered valid when the Rental Store receives validation from the central network of bank cards. If the central network of bank cards were to refuse payment, the Rental Store reserves the right to simply cancel the Reservation that had been recorded.
Upon receiving agreement from the central network of bank cards concerning the payment of the Deposit, a voucher confirming the acceptance of the Reservation is sent to the Customer with the details of the reserved equipment, the details of the reserved rental period and the corresponding rental price.
When the payment is being made, a connection is automatically set up with the payment treatment centre’s server. The bank details are protected by encoding. The information in question is not transferred under any circumstances to the Rental Store’s systems and is therefore not retained by the Rental Store.
Art 7: DRAWING UP THE CONTRACT
The Reservation is considered concluded and only becomes viable when the Rental Store receives the payment of the Deposit and the Customer receives a voucher that confirms the Reservation. Once the Reservation has been finalised, the Rental Store is committed to hiring out the Reserved Equipment to the Customer according to the conditions fixed during the Reservation and the GRC in effect, whereas the Customer commits him/herself to collecting the Reserved Equipment according to the same conditions.
Art 8: CHANGING A RESERVATION
The changes to the reservation will be made regarding the type and quantity of the Reserved Equipment
– Type of the equipment: Any change in the category of the Reserved Material can only be handled by the Rental Store concerned with the Reservation for which the changes have been requested by the Customer. For any changes of this nature, the Customer will contact the Rental Store directly which will then manage the Customer’s request for any changes itself. The Rental Store will accept the Customer’s request for changes as long as the product requested is available in the store in question.
The Rental Store’s acceptance to make the changes will not affect the deposit paid. The effect on the rental store price by accepting the changes will be taken into account when the balance of the rental is to be paid.
– Quantity: If a particular article is deleted it is considered as a cancellation.
On the Website, it is not possible to add an article to a reservation after it has been recorded. If the Customer wishes to reserve an extra article, he/she must make another reservation on the Website concerning the extra article that he/she wishes to order.

Any doubts that the Customer may have concerning the state of the rented equipment must be expressed to the Rental Store by the Customer when the said material is collected and in doing so the observation will be noted down on the rental form when it is signed. If an observation of this type is not made, then no doubts about the said material can be raised in the future.
The rented material, which is numbered and marked, must be returned with the same numbers and the same markings. The Customer must return the rented material clean and in the same condition that it was in when the Customer took possession of it, excluding any damage caused by normal usage or a hidden defect or a non-visible aspect that has caused any damage, for which the Customer cannot be held responsible.
The Customer remains responsible for any other damage to the rented item, whatever the cause may be. The Customer accepts responsibility for any damage caused and a payment will have to be made to the Rental Store by the Customer for the costs of returning the said material to its initial state or even to replace the material, within the limits of the maximum value for replacing the equipment with brand new material at the retail price, and this on top of the cost of renting the equipment.
