Best Price Guarantee
The prices on our site are highly competitive. All prices on the Fedneralex.com website are per room for your entire stay and are displayed including VAT tax and all other taxes (subject to change of such taxes), unless stated differently on our website or in the confirmation email.
Sometimes cheaper rates are available on our website for a specific stay at a property, however, these rates made by accommodations providers may carry special restrictions and conditions, for example in respect to cancellation and refund. Please check the room and rate details thoroughly for any such conditions prior to making your reservation.
In the event of a crossed-out rate, we look at the prices currently being charged by the property in the 30-day window around your proposed check-in date. From the prices within this window, we display the third-highest price on offer as the crossed-out rate. To ensure we are making a fair comparison, we always use the same reservation conditions (meal plan, cancellation policy and room type). This means that you get the same room for a lower price compared to other check-in dates at the same time of year.
We want you to pay the lowest price possible for your stay. Should you find your accommodation, with the same reservation conditions, at a lower rate on the Internet after you have made a reservation through us, we will match the difference between our rate and the lower rate.

- Host Cancels 24 hours or less before the date the reservation is supposed to start or the host does not provide any reasonable way to access the accommodation.
- The actual accommodation is not the same or “materially inaccurate” as what was specified in the listing description.
- The accommodation is not reasonably sanitary as was described or health hazards are present.
Number 1 is clear, but number 2 needs some more clarification. And number 3 is quite broad. When can a guest reasonably say that your space is dirty? Is an indelible wine stain you tried to wash off many times at the edge of your linen grounds for your guest to get a refund? What if they saw a cockroach? Of course things like that can happen even to the best and cleanest hosts, but it might be grounds for a refund could it not? According to Fedneralex, the accommodation must meet “minimum quality standards”. What is that? Let’s get into the details:
Travel issue (1)
This does not require much clarification. When the host cancels, the guest should get a refund. However, the second part might benefit from clarification. What does it mean for a host to provide reasonable access? For example, the host forgets to give the guest the keys to the house. What about transportation? Does this mean the host has to provide a car? Well of course not. However, many hosts do provide transportation especially in inaccessible places. It makes good business sense. So in the highly unlikely scenario that there are no taxis or car rentals in the area, that might be grounds. Another, uncommon scenario: the house is totally inaccessible because the roads leading to it are blocked for some reason.
Travel issue (2)
Basically, if a host lies about his accommodation description, then this might be grounds for a guest refund, especially if the host listed certain amenities that should be part of the “package” which the guest paid for. For example, it is advertised that there is a pool and it turns out that pool is not usable. Or, perhaps it’s listed that there is a pool but instead the guest finds a hole in the ground filled with water. Lying is always bad. But there are also unforeseeable problems that can happen at the last minute (ei. problems with the pool). Things like that can happen so best be as transparent as you can be and tell the guest beforehand. But, probably some of the more common complaints are about bed sizes or lack of clean linen and towels. It would of course be a hassle for two travelling buddies expecting two beds and find that what the accommodation can provide them for now is a queen sized bed. Uncomfortable beds on the other hand, probably won’t be easy for guests to prove as grounds for refund. But it will probably show up in their review.
