Cancellation and Insurance:
Once you have booked your holiday, our agreement is a legal contract and your deposit is non-refundable. If for whatever reason you cannot take your holiday and the booking cannot be re-let, you are still liable to pay for the booking in full, even we have not yet received your balance. If we do succeed in re-letting the booking, you are no longer liable for the balance, or we will refund it to you if you have already paid it, less a £20 administration fee. For this reason we strongly recommend that you take out cancellation insurance, which is inexpensive and can be obtained from any good broker.
For bookings made more than eight weeks in advance of arrival we require 25% of the total cost as a holding deposit at the time of your reservation. The remaining 75% balance is due eight weeks before the holiday commences. Bookings made less than eight weeks prior to your arrival require payment in full together.
Non-availability of Accommodation
We would only cancel your holiday if your accommodation was unavailable for reasons beyond our control. We would attempt to offer you an alternative date, however if this was not possible, or unacceptable to you, then we would refund all monies paid by your for the holiday. Our liability would not extend beyond this refund.
