German Rally - refunds & hotel bookings
« on: 10 January, 2021, 21:00:39 »
To help plan for this summers rally I have an update on the refunds.

Hotels
Book your hotel on the website https://www.bsa-oc.de/rooms/ (from 15th January)
Your payment can be sent to myself, and I can then transfer the money to Germany en mass, therefore reducing bank charges
If the rally is cancelled then the German club will refund your hotel money to myself, and I will then send you your money.
There will be a small deduction for bank charges.

Rally
If the rally is cancelled before the 1 month deadline, then most of the money can be refunded, as the suppliers to the rally (food, tents, equipment, etc) can be cancelled and should supply a refund.
I don’t know the actual percentage, but I hope that it will be most of the money (minus the spend on the rally packs)
 
It the cancellation happens within the final pre-month, then I’m afraid that the refund may not occur, as the money would have been spent.
Obviously, this is all in the control of the host German club.
 
There is a risk with booking the rally, as in the case of booking any foreign (or indeed domestic) holidays in 2021, the rule on travel can change daily.
 
Hope this helps people with their planning

Hi,

Lets hope the vaccine gets out to us in time.  I do not want to miss another one but will leave booking until the last minute or risk paying a bit extra for this.  It is probably not possible but it could well work out better if the Rally could be deferred until August.  That extra month could make all the difference to being well attended.

Dave.

There is an update to the cancellation planning on the website.

Also, when paying for hotel rooms, can you now please send the money directly to Germany as they need the money to reserve your room booking.
If you transfer the money from a personal bank account, there are no charges and you just need the following information
IBAN number, account name is "BSA Jaeschke", reason is "BSA-Rally 2021 + your surname+ your room code"

I know people are hanging back from booking due to the uncertainty with travel.

However, the German BSA club have plans in place to refund your money if the rally is cancelled.
They need to know who is coming to the rally, so can I ask you to get your bookings created, so that the club can allocate their recourses.
Also note, that the BBQ now caters for vegetarians

many thanks
Andy Lorenz
BSA OC(UK) International Rally Secretary



Dear BSA-riders. We would like to give you some information on the risk of loosing money, when you book for the 58. Int.-BSA-Rally : If you book for the Rally now, it would help us to see the interest in the Rally.
We made all contracts with the chance to withdraw on Corona-reasons with minimal charges. Same with the hotel-bookings. That means, that we will refund what you payed, reduced by some £3.50 GBP for the banking fees. If you book now and do not pay by the 10th of April we will inform you (make sure we have your e-mail address) that we take that as a withdraw and will delete you from the list of participants.
If you have paid and the rally is cancelled later, you will be refunded according to the state of preparations.
In April we will have to start ordering your rally-goodies. We will send you the things, we already have and will reduce the refund accordingly. We think, that is fair. If countries close their borders or ask returning people to stay in quarantine, we will refund your money as stated before. Same, if Germany doesn’t let you in.

We fixed the D&D and BBQ contracts. If you leave the meat, the D&D buffet is okay for vegetarians.
The BBQ is now also offering vegetarian things like grilled fish and grilled vegetables and a variety of salads.  All food is lactose-free and gluten-free.

Would the Rally-Secretaries of the different countries please spread that information and write a short message about the understanding to >  bsa-rally-2021@gmx.de  < ! Thank you for helping to run a normal life again ! Jürgen J. & Jürgen L.
