FAQ - Frequently asked questions
► Booking, tickets, preparing for the trip
Why haven’t I received a booking confirmation/payment receipt/ticket?
If you’ve booked a bundle ticket WITH accommodation, you won’t get a conventional ticket sent to you by mail. Instead you should have received an e-mail with your invoice attached, as well as our general terms and conditions. Print out the invoice and bring it to the reception when checking in at the resort front desk.
Is it possible to cancel my booking?
Our tickets are exempt from the right of return. (Read our general business terms here).
Is it possible to transfer my tickets and my apartment accordingly to another person?
Yes, a change of personal data can be made for a rebooking fee of 25.00 EUR. To complete the rebooking, we need your invoice number as well as the full name, address, e-mail address and phone number of the new occupant. Moreover, we need a written affirmation (via e-mail, fax or letter) from the party purchasing your tickets reconfirming that the booking transfer is in their interest. She will then receive a new booking confirmation.
Can I change the category of the apartment when the booking has already been made?
As long as you want to make a change to a bigger apartment category, we can upgrade you at any time, provided the category is still available. Please send an e-mail or call our booking hotline on +49 (0) 40 28 41 08 190.
Can I change the number of persons indicated in my reservation?
If you wish to increase the number of guests in your apartment and there are still beds available, you may retrospectively add names to the group. We can also upgrade you into a bigger apartment category if available. A reduction of the tickets booked is not possible.
May trans people also visit L-BEACH?
Yes, the L-BEACH festival is aimed at lesbians, heterosexual women, bisexual women and trans people.
Is there a minimum legal age for attending the festival?
Until 10 pm the festival is open to women of every age. After that, everyone under the age of sixteen has to leave the fenced-in festival grounds, and should return to the accommodation area. After midnight, visitors who have yet to reach the age of eighteen have to be accompanied by a parent or guardian, if on the festival grounds. The form for guardians can be found here. In addition to this form please bring a copy of the parent’s passport, the guardian’s passport as well as your own passport or student ID with you when you check in.
What should not be missing in my luggage?
Shower gel, soap, washing-up liquid and, in case you want to cook, spices and oil. Swimming gear, sun cream, a first-aid kit including headache pills and a safer-sex package, could also be of advantage…
