If we are unable to re-let the booker is legally responsible for the balance in full and there will be no refund under any circumstances, save for where the cancellation relates to Covid-19 as detailed below:
Covid Related Cancellations
If we are not able to provide your accommodation for a Covid related reason, or you cancel your booking because of UK government public health measures you will be entitled to:
- Postpone your holiday and transfer to a later date or different accommodation with no admin fees, but please note that if the cost of your new accommodation is higher than your original booking, then you’ll need to pay the difference. Normal cancellation terms will apply to new bookings (unless Covid restrictions are extended to cover the new booking dates).
- A refund of the full amount you have paid to date.
We strongly recommend cancellation insurance is taken out.
