6. The transfer must be made in accordance with the instructions and by the deadline given by the Reservation System.

9. The User is obliged to send confirmation of the payment to the Operator immediately after the payment has been made, to the email address or fax number specified in the booking confirmation. Irrespective of this, a credit to the Operator’s or Supplier’s bank account is necessary to confirm the payment.
10. The User shall make a bank transfer at a payment point (bank branch) that will ensure that the bank account of the Operator or Provider is credited and the transfer is credited before the Redemption Deadline.

type of credit card,
credit card number,
credit card expiry date (month, year),
CVV2/CVC2 code (the last 3 digits on the back of the card on the signature strip).

– rejection of the credit card by the Operator’s booking system,

22. Failure to verify the accuracy of the User’s personal details and the payment or credit card used, or failure to authorise the card issuer’s bank will result in cancellation being treated as withdrawal from the Agreement by the User.
23. Given the different forms and methods of card settlement by banks, a situation may occur where the User’s bank account is debited in a foreign currency.
24. The Operator shall not be liable for the costs of converting foreign currencies into Polish zlotys or the bank fees charged by the User’s bank.
