This contract is made on the terms of these booking conditions, if you have not seen these terms and conditions when you made the booking and you are not happy to proceed now that you have seen them, please write to us within 7 days of receipt. Your booking will be cancelled and all money will be returned, provided you have not commenced your stay. This does not apply if your booking was made within 6 weeks of arrival.

Your Holiday/Accommodation Price
When you make your booking you must pay a minimum deposit of 50% of your full reservation price. The balance of your accommodation arrangements must be paid at least 6 weeks before your arrival date. If the deposit or balance is not paid on time, we have the right to cancel your accommodation arrangements and retain the deposit. The cost of your accommodation will not change after you have booked.

Insurance & Passports
It is obligatory that all travellers hold adequate travel insurance that includes repatriation due to illness or accident. We also recommend that you take out continental vehicle recovery insurance whilst driving abroad. A valid passport is required for the duration of your stay abroad. Non-EU nationals may require a visa for travel in Europe.

If You Change Your Booking
If, after confirmation, you wish to change your travel arrangements in any way, we will do our utmost to make these changes if the accommodation is able to be re-let. We reserve the right to ask for an administration charge, and any further cost we incur in making this alteration. You should be aware that these costs could increase the closer to the departure date that changes are/can be made up to a minimum 6 weeks prior to arrival, after which time the full amount will be forfeit. Certain accommodation arrangements may not be changeable after confirmation and any alteration may result in a cancellation charge of up to all monies paid.

Please note that carrier details such as ferry times or flight schedules may be subject to change. Such a change is usually a minor change, and although your original booking will stand, we will do our best to make arrangements for you.

If You Cancel Your Booking
You may cancel your travel arrangements at any time. Written notification from the person who made the booking must be received at our office. Since we incur costs in cancelling your accommodation arrangements, you will have to pay the applicable cancellation charges: Cancellation more than 12 weeks prior to arrival = Loss of deposit subject to reimbursement at least in part dependant on factors. Cancellation between 6 to 12 weeks prior to arrival = 50% of total booking cost. Cancellation within 6 weeks prior to arrival = 100% of total booking cost. If the reason for your cancellation is covered under the terms of your insurance policy, you may well be able to reclaim these charges.

If We Change or Cancel Your Accommodation

Occasionally, we may have to make changes and we reserve the right to do so at any time. Most of these changes will be minor and we will advise you of them at the earliest possible date. If we have to make a major change or are unable to provide the booked arrangements, you can either have a refund of all monies paid or accept an offer of alternative travel arrangements of comparable standard from us, if available.

Example of minor changes are change of accommodation to another of the same standard. Please note that in cases of war, riot, industrial dispute, natural disaster/adverse weather conditions or other forms of Force Majeure any compensation claims will be void.
