The van is rented via the TILA system with your personal Aalto user details. It is necessary to cancel any bookings you are not going to use at least two days in advance. For an unused and uncancelled booking, you will be charged the rental price plus an additional 30 euros. You will receive an invoice to your e-mail address after your reservation when we have added the kilometres you have driven. You can also pay the invoice in our Services Office. Please note that when you write your information to TILA- calendar and click "Add" the reservation goes through. If you are uncertain about your reservation or have any questions regarding it, for example is the reservation confirmed, then please contact us two days before the reservation date at the latest. If you need to cancel the reservation, it has to be done at least 48 hours before the reservation time starts by deleting the reservation from TILA- calendar or contacting AYY services office. An unused reservation can't be deleted after the reservation and the invoice will be sent to you.
