Cancellation and Insurance

Once you have booked your holiday, your deposit is non-refundable. If for whatever reason you cannot take your holiday and the period of your booking cannot be re-let, you will still be liable to pay for the booking in full, even if we have not yet received your balance.

Please note that your deposit is not refundable under any circumstances. For this reason we strongly recommend that you take out cancellation insurance, which is inexpensive and can be obtained from any good broker.

Non-availability of Accommodation

We would only cancel your holiday if your accommodation was unavailable for reasons beyond our control. We would make every effort to offer you alternative accommodation, however if this is not possible, or is unacceptable to you, then we would refund all monies paid by your for the holiday. Our liability would not extend beyond this refund.
