The GUTA-Hotel-StandBy-system is a hotel reservation system for
short-term reservations - a last-minute system. Reservations have to be
made three days before the arrival at the earliest.
The GUTA-StandBy hotel-voucher
There are one-night-StandBy hotel-vouchers and annual hotel-vouchers
and these are the tickets to the GUTA-Hotel-StandBy-system. GUTA
forwards all contractional discounts directly to its customers and
finances itself by selling hotel-vouchers. When the hotel-voucher is
sold, it has a validity of at least 12 months. The date of validity is
printed at the bottom of the hotel-voucher. Within this term, one-night
hotel-vouchers might be expanded for further 12 months - for an
additional fee of EURO 6,00. There will be no substitude for expired
How to book
First of all, ask at the contract-hotel of your choice, if you may
reserve a room on GUTA-StandBy at your chosen date. It can make sense to
check your reservation by fax and ask for a confirmation by the hotel.
Please show the a. m. confirmation andyour hotel-voucher at the
reception after the arrival at the hotel. If you have one-night
hotel-vouchers, you will need one per night per room (even when you stay
with two persons in a double-room). The voucher(s) will be collected
at the reception and you can take over your room afterwards. The annual
StandBy-hotel-voucher will be handd back after it was shown to the
receptionists, as it is a property of the hotel-guest.
The check-in and take over of the hotel-room without indication to
the GUTA-StandBy-system allows the hotel to charge the regular rate.
With the GUTA-StandBy-rate, you are paying, if not stated differently,
only the cost for the room. Breakfast and other aditional services are
not included in the GUTA-StandBy-rate. The GUTA-StandBy-rates are
cash-prices. Payment with cheques, credit-card or other legal tenders
may cause an additional fee. You have to verify that at the hotel, if
necessary. Within the long term of validity of the hotel-vouchers, some
rates may change. We advise you to have the rates confirmed by the hotel
when you make your reservation.
The GUTA UG retains the right, to delete or replace hotels. Due to
that, the hotel-guide contains all contract-hotels which join the system
when printing the hotel-guide. This should be self-explanatory, but......
....we would like to refer to the point that the thing about the
GUTA-StandBy-system is to offer extremely reasonably priced overnight
reservations within our hotel-network, that is spread over most parts of
Middle-Europe. As a result, the GUTA UG can be used either for
business-, weekend- or round-trips. Of course, the GUTA UG can not
assurea reservation-garanty in our contract-hotels at all time. Your
chosen contract-hotel will always give you a warm welcome, as long as
the required room is available at the date of your choice.
