When you make a booking with us in order to secure the accommodation you will need to pay the security deposit plus 25% of the cost of your holiday up front, then 28 days before you are due to arrive you will need to pay the balance of the remaining cost of your accommodation. Once the balance is received a confirmation email is sent to you. You can pay via bank transfer which we can then provide you with our bank details.
The contract is made once we have sent to you email confirmation of your booking and receipt of your deposit 7 days before. Please note that if you do cancel then a cancellation fee will apply. The cost of your stay will be confirmed in the email.
If there are any changes made by yourself you will need to email this over to us as soon as possible and we will do our best to get this sorted for you.

If you need to cancel your holiday you must let us know as soon as possible in writing or via email. There will be a cancellation charge depending when this is cancelled For example, if it is cancelled more than 4 weeks in advance then it is the deposit that will be required. If it is cancelled less than 4 weeks its deposit, the 25% which was paid at the beginning plus the holiday balance of monies, due to the fact the property was secured for that period of time for you. Due to why you had to cancel then maybe your holiday insurance policy will cover this for you. With this in mind we can highly recommend that you take out holiday insurance so that you are covered.
If we had to cancel your accommodation this will be for only reasons out of our control for example maintenance to the property or an owner is selling. We will do our best to arrange alternative accommodation for you but we cannot pay any expenses losses that may incur.
