Deposits and paying the balance of your holiday
When making your booking we require you to pay a 25% deposit, with the remaining balance of your holiday due for payment 8 weeks before your arrival date. Please note that, when making last minute bookings for arrivals within 8 weeks, you will be required to pay the balance of your holiday in full at the time of booking. Your balance is due and payable by the date printed on your booking form (8 weeks before your holiday start date). If an overdue deposit or balance is not paid by the deadline given (you will receive an email reminder) it will be assumed you have cancelled and the property will become re-available. However, if the property does not re-book, you will still be liable for the balance. We reserve the right to refuse any booking without explanation.
Alterations to your holiday booking
Your booking shall be in accordance with the details confirmed at the time of booking. Your booking is non-transferable and non-alterable. If you do wish us to make an alteration to your booking, we will use reasonable endeavours to accommodate your request, but no guarantee can be given. An administration fee of £50 may be charged per booking for making any alteration to your booking and increased rates may apply for altered accommodation and/or timings. Where an alteration results in a reduction in duration and/or is for a downgrade in property, no refund will be given. Once the contract is made, it cannot be transferred to anyone else or changed (including the members of your party) without our agreement.
Cancelling your holiday booking
Cancellations must be received in writing, either by letter or e-mail. If you do not receive a written acknowledgement, you must assume that we have not received your communication Our cancellation charges are those detailed below:
|Period Before Arrival Date||Cancellation charges as a % total cost|
|More than 30 days||Loss of deposit|
|30 – 22 days||50%+|
|21 – 15 days||60%+|

However if we manage to re-let the accommodation, 75% of the cost will be returned. To help protect against unforeseen we strongly advise that you take out holiday insurance to protect against any potential loss of your deposit in the event you need to cancel your booking. If you need to cut short your holiday after it has commenced, we regret that we are unable to refund any monies paid.
Cancellation by us
In exceptional circumstances, we may have to cancel your booking. If we must do so we will inform you as soon as possible and you will be offered either a refund sum or alternative holiday arrangements. If we need to cancel your holiday due to circumstances beyond our control (force majeure) we are unable to refund any monies paid.

Such events will usually include (whether actual or threatened) war, riot, civil strife, terrorist activity, industrial dispute, natural or nuclear disaster, adverse weather conditions, epidemics, fire, closure, restriction or congestion of airspace, airports and ports and all other events outside our control or the UK Foreign Office advice. Please refer to applicable cancellation terms above. We strongly advise that you take out adequate holiday insurance.
