Parties to the agreement
Business Deal is a collaboration between Thon Hotels and First Hotels, whereby we offer 120 hotels in Norway, Sweden, Denmark, Belgium. Netherlands and Spain.
This agreement is entered into between Thon Hotels and you as the customer. Customer means the parent company and subsidiaries in which the parent company has a shareholding of more than 50%, or a specified purchasing organisation.
A summary of the benefits of the agreement and the obligations of the parties are described in this agreement.
Rates and payment terms
Rates are based on an anticipated volume of up to 500 room nights at our hotels.
For hotel stays at Thon Hotels in Norway and Sweden, the contract rates apply per room per night. Breakfast is included at all hotels in Norway and Sweden.
The contract rates apply to individual travellers. Thon Hotels uses dynamic pricing for its hotels, which means that rates may fluctuate from day to day. Business Deal provides a discount of up to 15% on Thon Hotels rates and up to 21% on First Hotels rates. This may result in fluctuations in the difference between the lowest standard rates and the Business Deal contract rate. The customer is free to book any price category that is available at any given time. Please note that special conditions may apply to bookings made for price categories other than the contract price.
Separate terms apply to group or conference bookings. Bookings of more than 10 rooms are considered to be group bookings.
