English term or phrase: attrition
Geen context in mijn document, behalve dat het een clausule is in een contract voor een conferentieboeking in een hotel/congrescentrum. Gevonden: "Most hotel contracts [...] have attrition clauses that set forth the fees that een organization must pay if it fails to use the sleeping room block commitment it has previously booked." (International encyclopedia of hospitality management By Abraham Pizam on Googlebooks).
Alvast hartelijk bedankt!
