In the event of a change in the dates or the number of people, the Service Provider will endeavour to accept the requests for change of date, subject to availability, without prejudice to any additional costs; in all cases, this is a simple obligation of means, as the Service Provider cannot guarantee the availability of a camping pitch or accommodation or of another date; in these cases, an additional sum may be requested.
