Holiday vouchers are granted to employees exclusively for the purpose of covering expenses incurred on holidays, respectively for paying the contracted package of touristic services.
Persons who have received nominal holiday vouchers are the only persons legally entitled to use them during the period of validity, being prohibited from selling them or giving them away to others.
Holiday vouchers can be used during the validity period only on the Romanian territory, in locations that accept their collection, being able to cover the value of the following services, only in the specified configurations:
(i) accommodation at any lodging structure, whether in resorts or in cities;
(ii) service packages including mandatory accommodation (minimum package) and one or more services (internal transport, meal services, entertainment services);
Therefore, holiday vouchers may cover either only the value of accommodation services (minimum package) or the value of service packages containing accommodation and other services (transport, meals, entertainment) only if they are set up in the form of packages of touristic services from the time of booking and purchase.
For a better understanding, multiple touristic services can be paid with holiday vouchers, if, from the time of request of the reservation:
( i ) a package of touristic services was set up to include accommodation in the chosen location (affiliated unit), and other services (transport, meals, entertainment), or
( iii ) an amount above the accommodation value (room credit/account) was specified / constituted, to cover other touristic services subsequently decided, in the chosen location (bar and restaurant charges, leisure and relaxation services).
Holiday vouchers may not be used to pay separately, on site, only for the bar or restaurant charges, nor for relaxation services (ex: massages), if they were not part of the contracted service package.
