30. WITHDRAWAL BY THE OWNER AND REPLACEMENT OF THE PROPERTY
In the event that the Owner is forced to cancel the Customer's reservation for reasons beyond its will or due to force majeure, KLODGE will identify, in agreement with the Customer, a new Property with the same requirements or the same level of the one previously booked. In the event that the price of the new property is lower than the property booked, KLODGE will refund the customer an amount equal to the difference, while if the price of the new property exceeds the amount paid by the customer the latter, by accepting the proposed Property, will be required to pay the difference in the higher price. In the event that the Client accepts a replacement of the Property following his complaint, he will have nothing else to request and / or expect, neither from KLODGE, nor from the Owner of the accommodation previously booked and then replaced. If the parties are unable to find an agreement on the replacement of the Property, upon receipt of the written cancellation of the Agreement by the Customer, KLODGE will refund the amounts paid excluding the Agency Fees. Under no circumstances will KLODGE and the Owner be obliged to pay hotel bills or alternative accommodation.
