Booking Conditions

Booking & Payment

Booking more than 42 days in advance: to secure a booking, a deposit of not less than one third of the holiday cost & a completed Booking Form, must be received within 7 days of the reservation. The balance must be paid not less than 42 days before commencement of holiday. No reminder will be sent.

Bookings within 42 days of holiday: the total holiday cost is payable immediately.

If you cancel your holiday:
Please telephone us as soon as possible and in any event confirm cancellation in writing/ e-mail. Every effort will be made to re-let the property and if successful any monies paid over and above the deposit (which in any event will be retained) will be refunded, but if the property is not re-let then the whole holiday cost remains due and payable. We strongly recommend that you take out a simple cancellation insurance policy with your own agent.

We reserve the right to cancel or alter the booking arrangements and in any case of cancellation by us then we shall be liable to the hirer to return any holiday payment received but shall have no further liability.
