Scope of Services

 

The www.armhotels.am website, TBS CJSC, (distribution) partners and service suppliers introduce to the buyers an online hotel booking platform for accommodation in the Republic of Armenia. By making a booking through the www.armhotels.am website, you enter into a direct (legally binding) contractual relationship with TBS CJSC. From the point at which you make your booking, we act solely as an intermediary between you and the accommodation suppliers, transmitting the details of your booking to the relevant Supplier and then sending you a document. It will be either a Booking confirmation (in case of an advance payment) or a Voucher (after full payment).

The information, displayed on the www.armhotels.am website, is provided to us by the Suppliers and is carefully checked by the employees of TBS CJSC at the time of submission of information. Only after the checking, the information could be displayed on our Website. However, the www.armhotels.am website does not guarantee the quality level of Suppliers and services mentioned on the Website.

After submitting the Voucher and hotel check-in, the accommodation suppliers provide guests with the relevant type and class of hotel room(s) booked beforehand.

 

Prices

 

All the prices on the www.armhotels.am system include all types of taxes, unless otherwise stated on the Website, Booking confirmation or Voucher.

Sometimes cheaper rates are available on our Website for specific periods; however, these rates may carry special restrictions and conditions. Please read the Booking and Cancellation Policy and the remark next to the hotel room carefully prior to making your booking.

Crossed out rates shown on the www.armhotels.am website mean that we have compared the actual rates with previously offered higher rates or the rack rates.

The currency converter is for information purposes only and should not be regarded as final, because it is periodically reviewed by the Central Bank of the Republic of Armenia. On the assumption of the peculiarities and dates of a transaction, actual rates may vary a little.

 

Booking and Cancellation Policy

 

By making a booking through the www.armhotels.am website, you accept and agree to the cancellation policy, which is applicable in cases of booking cancellation, date changes and no-show. The general cancellation policies are available on each hotel's “hotel policies” page on our Website. We recommend you to read the cancellation policy carefully prior to making a booking.

In case of booking, your credit card will be charged for the total stay of your booking.

In case you have made the payment for a booking and are going to cancel it 3 days /72 hours/ prior to the date of arrival, no penalties will be applied, and we will refund the whole money you have paid for the booking.

If you fail to cancel the booking before the cancellation deadline or in the event of no-show, the first night fee will be charged as a penalty.

3 days /72 hours/ shall be counted from the hotel’s check-in time.

In case it is mentioned “non-refundable” next to the hotel room's name, other booking and cancellation policies shall be applied /see the remark/.

Once you have completed your booking process and made the payment, you will receive an email with Booking confirmation (a Voucher).

Free of charge

 

We will not charge any special commissions, taxes or other types of payments from buyers for bookings made through the www.armhotels.am website, except for the prices mentioned on the System.

 

Credit card

 

The payments made by credit cards are accepted on ArmHotels system through redirection to the websites of "Skrill" (www.skrill.com) and "ArCa" electronic payment systems (www.arca.am). The future payment information is transferred through closed bank systems having high-quality protection. The confidential information of customers (credit card details, registration information, etc.) is collected and processed by "Skrill" and "ArCa" processing centers, and not on the www.armhotels.am website. For that very reason, we cannot receive the buyer’s personal and bank details. During the payment processes through "Skrill" or "ArCa" systems, the card owner automatically receives an email, which informs him about the payment amount withdrawn from his/her bank account.

For making a booking through the www.armhotels.am system, we accept ArCa virtual card on "ArCa" payment system and VISA, MasterCard, Diners, American Express, JCB, Delta/VISA Depit and VISA Electron cards on "Skrill" payment system.

Taking into consideration the fact, that all types of payments are made via "Skrill" and "ArCa" payment systems (www.skrill.com , www.arca.am), your credit card details are not saved or transferred to the service suppliers. The verification of your credit card, the protection of its details and encryption is completed by "Skrill" and "ArCa" payment systems (www.skrill.com , www.arca.am).

Some banks or card companies may charge additional fees for bookings considering them international money transfer. Besides, the currency of your credit card may be different from the currency of the booking price (mentioned on our Website) to be paid for, and your bank may charge extra payment for foreign exchange. You can contact your bank in order to get more information on these conditions.
