Once you send the full payment, you should inform us by e-mail about the payment details, which will help us to check the payment due and secure your reservation for your benefit and interest. If we do not receive the full payment as we expected or we have reasons to believe that your payment is delayed and fraudulent, we reserve the right to cancel your reservation, and the cancellation letter will be sent to you by e-mail properly.
