Corona Virus – COVID-19 Cancellation Policy 

Last updated 04/02/2021 @ 08.20hrs

If you’re worried about booking your holiday amid all the news reports surrounding the Corona virus, you’re not alone. We are with you and we would like to send you a message of calmness, so you can book your holiday with total confidence with our new flexible Booking & Cancellation Conditions

 

Booking a Property is very different from booking a regular hotel room or a package holiday, especially with regards to payments and cancellations,

In order to address the understandable concern and uncertainty caused by the Corona virus, and to provide some re-assurance to our guests who have already booked, or are considering booking, we have adjusted our standard Terms & Conditions .

Existing Bookings for all guests whose travel is prevented or seriously disrupted by the Corona virus and have a check-in date on or before June 30, 2020

If you are not covered by travel insurance, we will endeavour to convert your booking to a Credit Note which will allow you to re-book the same Villa or Apartment, within 12 months of your original booking.

 

Cancellation up to 4 weeks before check-in

In these times of uncertainty it’s reassuring to know there’s some flexibility if the worse happens.

To benefit from the free cancellation up to 4 weeks before check-in we would require a reservation deposit of £115.50 GBP deposit which includes £15.50 GBP booking fee to confirm your dates and booking, 20% of the total rental charge payable within 4 weeks from the date of booking, the balance of the rental cost is then payable 8 weeks before arrival together with advertised refundable damage deposit

Should your booking be cancelled by us or the accommodation owner, or if you need to cancel your booking because the government public health measures means that it is unlawful to travel and/or make use of the accommodation you have booked with us then you will be entitled to transfer all monies paid to a later date. If the alternative date is more expensive then the difference in cost will be payable and if it is cheaper, the accommodation credit will remain on account subject to the booking/arrival dates stated below.

You will need to cancel with us as soon as possible and we will require proof of circumstances e.g. in the case of a positive COVID-19 test, we will require a copy of the test result before we can action the credit or refund

  1. We can re-book your entire stay within the same property to a future available date, outside of the declared restriction period, within 12 months of the end of your original booking (subject to any additional cost being paid by you).
  2. If you are unsure of the future dates you require, we can provide you with a voucher to the value of the monies paid to date for your holiday, to be used against a holiday in the same property outside of the declared restriction period and within 12 months of the end of your original booking (subject to the property owner’s agreement).
  3. Be aware that if you reschedule to dates that are more expensive than your original holiday dates, you have to pay the price difference.
  4. If you choose to change your dates, you have two options: - Pay the balance now and therewith keep the current rate.
  5. Transfer the balance due-date up to 8 weeks before your new arrival date - any price increase or decrease will be applied.
  6. You can, of course, also choose to simply cancel your holiday. In this case, we can provide you with a proof of cancellation which you can use to put in a reimbursement request with your travel insurer.

Cancellation By You

Unless the cancellation is caused by Force-Majeure Covid-19 related, it is agreed between us that should you wish to cancel all or any part of your booking, or that the booking is cancelled by us due to non-payment, then we shall be entitled to the following percentage of the holiday cost:

If no official governmental notices such as "do not travel" or "avoid all non essential travel" are in place at the time of your departure but you wish to cancel your holiday with us due to concerns about Coronavirus, unfortunately we will not be able to reschedule your booking and our normal cancellation policy will apply. Again, in this situation, we would recommend you first contact your travel insurance provider.

A. 8 weeks or more before your arrival date = 100 % (non-refundable reservation deposits)

B. If a cancellation occurs within the 8 weeks prior to arrival, any funds paid (deposit or balance etc ) are non-refundable

C. All cancellations must be sent to us by email by the digital signatory of the booking form. Security damage deposit will be fully refunded.

D. You fail any tests, checks or other measures imposed by a supplier, airline, port or airport, border control authority or other government body or local authority or fail to submit for testing or assessment when requested to do so, and as such you are denied entry to board the flight or ferry , entry to the destination, access to the services or you are otherwise unable to proceed with the holiday rental , or that portion of the holiday

If you cancel the flights, it is unlikely you will recoup the money from the airline as they generally only issue refunds to trips that they have cancelled themselves.

Luckily you have travel insurance but it can also be the case your insurer might not pay out, as not choosing to head abroad when your flights are still available is known as disinclination to travel which in nearly every case is not covered.

However, as it is not recommended to travel to Spain unless it is essential, your travel insurance should cover you if you have Coronavirus-related cover as part of your policy and you took the insurance out before any official advice against travel to that country was issued.

Notes

  • Please note that we will have no liability for any refunds, compensation, costs, expenses or other losses of any kind incurred by you (including, where applicable, the cost of medical treatment), in the following circumstances:
