Terms of Business

Estimates & Quotations

Estimates and quotations are given based on the information you have supplied. If however our initial examination of your teeth once you have arrived at our surgery shows that additional work is needed then additional charges will be made. However, no work will be undertaken without your prior knowledge and agreement.

Validity

Quotations and estimates are valid for six months from the date given.

Prices / Currencies

Our prices are shown in UK Pounds Stirling (GBP). You may pay in Euros or Hungarian Forints if you wish. If you do, the amount payable will be subject to the prevailing exchange rate at the time.

Accommodation

We are not formally associated with any hotel or guesthouse, but we are able to make reservations for apartments for you at nearby premises. All payments etc are however between yourself and the proprietors.

Transfers

Transfers are offered between Heviz and Budapest, Graz and Vienna airports. These transfers are provided on our behalf by the proprietors of the local hotel/pension. Because of this our offer of free transfers is restricted to patients who stay with them. Should you elect to make your own arrangements for accommodation, we are unable to provide free transfers.

Payment

Each time you visit us you are expected to pay in full for the treatment you receive during that visit. We normally expect to receive 50% of the treatment fee at the beginning of your visit and the balance when the visit is at an end. Payment is requested in cash please. We will accept GB Pounds, Euros of Hungarian Forints (There are local bureaux de change where you can change traveller's cheques). You may pay by credit card but in this case we must make a surcharge of 2.5% for Visa & MasterCard and 3.5% for Amex. 

Termination of Treatment

In a few isolated cases it has been necessary for us to discontinue treatment resulting from a patient's unreasonable behaviour (Drunkenness etc). If we are put in the position of having to do this any monies paid will be forfeit.
