UK law will govern the Contract. The contract of hire is not effective until we have processed the deposit. The contract will be subject to these booking conditions and must be complied with. The party leader must be at least 18 years of age at the time of booking and the booking form must list names, addresses and ages of your party.
Bookings are confirmed on receipt of 100% payment of holiday cost.
Cancellations must be immediately notified to us by phone and confirmed by email. Reservations cancelled one month in advance will receive a 75% refund. If we are able to re-let your booking we will refund you the final 25% less an administration fee. No refund is available for reservations cancelled within one month of the date of the reservation
4. CANCELLATION INSURANCE
Cancellation Insurance is not compulsory but we strongly recommend such insurance to protect against the cancellation penalty.

If for any reason we have to cancel your booking in advance due to circumstances beyond our control for example fire, flood, exceptional weather conditions, epidemics, destruction/damage to the property (“force majeure”) you will be refunded the full amount of the booking. If we have to terminate your holiday early for the above reasons you will be refunded part of the booking fee based on the time remaining of the booking. No additional compensation, expenses or costs will be payable.
