Vacation in times with Covid-19

We are happy to welcome our guests again at the Hotel Schindler.

However, since the COVID-19 virus will be with us for a long time, we have put together some useful information for you. The health of our guests and employees is very important to us, which is why we implement the measures prescribed to contain the virus and ensure safe cooperation at the Hotel & Restaurant Schindler.


Currently: 2-G + when entering Austria Austria

is reacting to the expansion of the Omikron variant with stricter entry regulations. From Monday, December 20th, a 2-G certificate is required for entry. In addition, an up-to-date PCR test or a booster vaccination must be available, otherwise entry is possible, but quarantine is entered, which is ended by a negative test result. Exceptions apply, among others. for children and adolescents of school age and for children under 12 years of age.

This is how 2-G works in Austria

The so-called 2-G rule (“vaccinated or recovered”) and an FFP2 mask requirement apply in many areas. In detail: 2-G ("vaccinated or recovered") applies in accommodation establishments, catering establishments, leisure and sports establishments, cultural institutions, cable cars, at Advent markets or when using body-friendly services (e.g. hairdresser) The FFP2 mask requirement applies to all public areas in closed rooms, including cable cars. In catering, the FFP2 mask must be worn on the way to and from the seats, in accommodation when entering generally accessible interior spaces. In the catering trade there is curfew at 11 p.m. (exception: New Year's Eve). Night gastronomy and après-ski are not possible for the time being.

The vaccination certificate is valid for 270 days from the date of full immunization. (In Austria you are considered fully vaccinated from the day of the 2nd vaccination or the booster vaccination.) Attention! A single vaccination with Johnson & Johnson is only recognized until January 3, 2022, after which a booster is necessary.

Current regulations for children Children under the age of twelve are exempt from the requirement to submit proof of entry. (Exception Vienna: Here the test is compulsory from the age of 6.) For school-age children who have not been fully vaccinated and have not recovered, there is the possibility of equating themselves to 2-G status with the so-called “Holiday Ninja Pass”.

 

 

3-G becomes 2-G vaccinated or recoverd!

Dear friends and guests of the Hotel Schindler

We are already counting the days until we can welcome you to the Hotel Schindler and hope you feel the same way. With all the anticipation for the ever-approaching winter vacation, it can quickly happen that some things are forgotten when preparing for the vacation.

For this reason we are sending you the most important information you need for your stay in Austria and St. Anton in this email:

Due to the current federal COVID regulations, access to hotels, restaurants and other leisure activities (such as ski lifts) is only possible with valid 2G proof *.

* This means that you are either fully vaccinated or have recovered. The exact guidelines of the federal government are as follows:

2G proof - VACCINATION

The EU-compliant vaccination certificate, the yellow vaccination pass, a vaccination card and a printout or PDF (e.g. on the mobile phone) of the data from the e-vaccination pass are valid as proof of vaccination.

Vaccinations with an EMA-approved vaccine against SARS-CoV-2 are valid if you have already received the 2nd or 3rd dose. This vaccination certificate is then valid for 9 months from the last vaccination.

Attention: Vaccination certificates for a dose with Janssen (Johnson & Johnson) lose their validity on January 3, 2022. Therefore, a second dose is required no earlier than 14 days after the first dose in order to continue to receive a valid vaccination certificate.

2G verification - RECOVERED

People who have become infected with the virus can identify themselves with the green passport with a medical certificate, which is valid for 6 months after recovery from the corona infection. The Covid infection must have been proven molecularly (e.g. PCR test).

** The 2G rule applies to all people aged 12 and over who are no longer required to attend school. For school-age children (up to and including 14 years of age, a negative PCR test is also valid as proof!)

A detailed statement by the federal government on the current corona measures can be found at

www.sozialministerium.at

Free cancellations are only possible if our guests cannot or are not allowed to arrive due to lockdowns or the illness of COVID. Since it is possible to arrive with the vaccination or proof of health, a cancellation is not free due to the 2G rule.

We ask for your understanding, but we hope that we will soon be able to see you personally at the Hotel Schindler.

If you have any questions about the current coronavirus situation, you can contact us at any time.

Kind regards

Your Fahrner family

Frequently asked questions before your vacation

What happens if a close family member falls ill with Covid-19 and I cannot / do not want to travel?

In the event of illness of relatives, please contact your travel insurance company, as this is usually covered by cancellation insurance. If no travel insurance has been taken out, a rebooking of the stay is possible after consultation with the hotel.

What happens if the hotel or region is quarantined during my stay?

The health of our guests and employees is our top priority. For this reason, an action plan was developed in accordance with specifications from the WHO and the individual countries. This also includes the isolation of sick people on site in the hotel. In the event of an emergency, your booked room is available for isolation.

There is an exit ban in my home country, but not in the country of arrival. Can I cancel free of charge?

If it is impossible to travel to the holiday destination, it is possible to rebook the stay or rebook the deposit for another stay with us at the Hotel Schindler.

The borders are not officially open, but can I still book if I risk it and try to cross the borders?

As a company, it is very important to us to comply with the guidelines and guidelines of the individual countries. We will not refuse you the booking, but we strongly recommend that you postpone your stay to a period where crossing the border is permitted.

What happens if I get Covid-19 outside the free cancellation period?

In the event of illness, please contact your travel insurance company, as this is usually covered by cancellation insurance. If no travel insurance has been taken out, a rebooking of the stay is possible after consultation with the hotel.

I would like to cancel free of charge because my partner, with whom I booked with you, is a high-risk patient.

In the event of illness or a medical certificate, please contact your travel insurance company, as this is usually covered by cancellation insurance.

When will my deposit be returned or credited by the hotel?

We ask for your understanding, especially during these difficult times, that we have to reckon with delays in remittances. As an alternative, you of course also have the option of using the down payment made for another stay with us.

Can I cancel free of charge if a second wave breaks out and we have exit restrictions / lock down again?

Should a booking not take place in the event of a lock down for Austria, it goes without saying all costs (deposit ...) reimbursed / or postponed on request. This only applies to an official order from the State of Austria.

 

If you have any further questions or suggestions, please do not hesitate to contact us.

We wish you a relaxing and, above all, safe vacation.
