Prices and accounting
The price which is published on our website, is the price per (adult) person per week. Children under 1 years old stay for free. The price for children between 1 and 3 years old is €250,- Children between 4 and 10 years old get 30% off the published price (provided that the children stay in their parents room. If there are more children between 4 and 10 years old, they will need to have their own room.
In order to rent the entire chalet, you should meet a minimum amount of full paying persons per chalet times the published price. When some of the minimum number of persons are children, for the children the adult price should be paid. The children must pay the adult price until the lower limit for private hire of the chalet is achieved.
Every child younger then 11 years old will receive a discount when the total number of guests exceeds the minimum required number of guests. The discount for children between 4 and 11 years old is 30%. Children between 1 and 3 years old, pay a standard price of €250,-. Children younger then 1 years old, come for free.
Every adult above the minimum prescribed number of persons in high season (even though the week is in a low season) gets 30% discount. If you have less people than the minimum prescribed number, you must pay the full price (up to the minimum number) in order to rent your private chalet. However, you will receive €50,- discount for each empty bed (up to the minimum number).
The price of the tourist tax depends on the destination. Every village has its own tourist tax.
In the last few years most of the villages charge more and more for the tourist tax. In most of the villages the tourist tax will be in between €1,50 and €3,00 per person per night. In most cases children under 12 years will not have to pay any tourist tax.
The tax needs to be paid up on arrival, you can arrange this with the chalet hosts. After that, they will hand it over to the local municipality. So the tax is not included in the price.

For driving on the Austrian or Swiss highways (A-roads) and motorways (S road, B180, B302 and S1) a motor way sticker is necessary.
The costs for the stickers are approximately as following:
Austria valid for 10 days: around €9,-
