A summary of the benefits of the agreement and the obligations of the parties are described in this agreement.
Nature of the agreement
This agreement governs discounts on both hotel stays and conferences.
Accommodation: The agreement has a dynamic pricing structure, which means that the rate varies according to demand, the day of the week, and the time of booking. Under this agreement, the standard nightly rate at any given time will form the basis of the discounted contract rate. The rate is specified for one person per night in a standard room, including breakfast.
Conferences: The agreement has a dynamic pricing structure, which means that the rate varies according to demand, the day of the week, and the time of booking. Under this agreement, the standard rate for conference and other event packages at any given time will form the basis of the discounted package rate. The discounts apply to day packages and full-board packages at all hotels that offer this.
Rates and payment terms
Visma Innkjøpssamarbeid has negotiated competitive rates on the basis of an anticipated volume of up to 500 room nights per Customer at the Supplier’s hotels.
For hotel stays at the Supplier’s hotels in Norway, the contract rates apply for one person per room per night. The rate includes breakfast.
The contract rates for hotel stays apply to individual travellers. The Supplier uses dynamic pricing for its hotels. This is based on the market, demand, and the time of booking and can change from day to day. For Visma, the Supplier’s standard rates are discounted by 10 - 16 %.
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.
Conferences – the contract prices for conferences and other events apply to all of the Supplier’s hotels that offer day packages and full-board packages.

For Visma customers, a discount of 10% will be applied to the Supplier’s standard price levels for day packages and full-board packages (“DP KK 1–9” and “HP KK 1–9”).
