I think 'contract' or 'package' are the most likely to refer to as many days as 215 - it's 2/3 of a year! It can't be holidays, can it. kajuco@hotmail.com

1 day 13 hrs
fixed annual amount


Explanation:
Here I would express this as follows :

fixed annual amount : 215 days pro rata

A "forfait" is a fixed amount, a lump sum, something which does not vary to take variable factors into account. Sometimes you win, sometimes you loose!

However, in your context, there is some variable element to the extent that the "forfait" allows for pro rata variations based on the number of days. (As to the number of days of what, you give no indication, but I hope this explanation will be of help).

2 days 31 mins
not, really


Explanation:
The term is what these 215 days mean. For example, you pay 150 francs to go to the National Library for a whole year. You pay 'a forfait annuel' to use the library' and you have determined days to do it.
