Business Deal agreement terms and conditions
Parties to the agreement
Business Deal is a co-operation between Thon Hotels and First Hotels, where we offer more than 120 hotels in

This agreement is entered into between Thon Hotels and you, the customer. The term customer refers to the parent company and subsidiaries with more than 50% ownership or a defined purchasing organisation.

Prices have been stated based on an expected volume of up to 500 room nights at our hotels.
The agreement price per room per night applies to overnight stays at Thon Hotels in Norway and Sweden. Breakfast is included in the price at all hotels in Norway and Sweden. In Belgium and the Netherlands, the price stated does not include breakfast.
The agreement prices apply to individual travellers. Thon Hotels employ dynamic pricing for its hotels, and prices can change on a daily basis. For Business Deal, a discount of up to 18% is given on Thon Hotels’ and up to 21% discount on First Hotels’ daily flexible price levels, and no restrictions apply. See the price information on “My Page” at www.thonhotels.no. There may, therefore, be discrepancies between the lowest ordinary price levels and the Business Deal agreement price. The customer is free to reserve any price type available at any time. Note that special terms and conditions may be attached to reservations of different price types to the agreement price.
Separate terms and conditions shall apply to group or conference reservations. Bookings of more than 10 rooms is considered to be a group booking.
