50% payment is required upon booking, and the remaining 30 days before arrival, unless expressly agreed otherwise by QFL.
The total price for your entire stay will be presented to you before you confirm your booking and make payment. Our pricing is dynamic and therefore the price for the same or similar accommodation may vary over time after your booking is made.
