  2. On the basis of a voucher purchased from the hotel, the customer is entitled to demand that the hotel provide the service stated on the voucher. The service stated on the voucher will be provided in accordance with these Terms & Conditions. The hotel is only required to provide the service upon presentation of the voucher (a bearer ticket within the meaning of section 807 and sections 793 ff. of the German Civil Code [BGB]).
  3. The customer is entitled to pass on the voucher to third parties, in particular as a gift. At the request of the customer, the hotel will already state on the voucher form the name of a third party as the intended recipient of the voucher. The stipulation of a name does not affect the legal nature of the voucher as described in clause XII.2.
  4. If the customer is a consumer and, by purchasing a voucher, concludes a contract with the hotel by the sole means of remote communication media, the customer has a right of cancellation pursuant to sections 355, 312g, 312c of the German Civil Code (BGB). Remote communication media are communication media that can be used to negotiate or conclude a con-tract between a consumer and a trader without the need for both parties to be present at the same time. In particular, they include letters, catalogues, telephone calls, faxes and emails, as well as radio, telecommunications and media services. There is no right of cancellation if the voucher relates to the provision of services in the areas of lodging, conveyance, food and drink provision or leisure activities and the hotel has committed to providing the services at a particular point in time or within a precisely defined period of time. This applies in particular to vouchers with specific booking dates.
