A deposit, to cover you for accidental damage to equipment, is payable to reception on arrival which is refundable on departure. The exact amount will be shown on your confirmation invoice.
If we are aware in advance that a significant number of facilities normally available at the time of your stay will not be available we will treat this as a significant change to your booking and the provisions below under “Changes made by us” will apply.
a) Planning Your Journey
It is your responsibility to plan your journey and, if taking a self-drive holiday, to provide a roadworthy vehicle. We will not offer a refund for unused accommodation or travel if insufficient time has been allowed for travelling or you have broken down.
If you are pregnant at time of travel it's imperative to check there are no restrictions with your choice of carrier. Most airlines will usually advise against flying after 28 weeks, although some will allow carriage beyond this point up to as late as 36 weeks, as long as a GP's certificate has been issued. Most ferry operators allow carriage up to 32 weeks, however some routes will require a doctor's certificate. Please check when booking.
c) Special Requests
We do our best to meet your requests, however, special requests are not guaranteed. Special requests must be indicated to us at the time of booking. Whilst we will use reasonable endeavors to accommodate such needs, they cannot be guaranteed unless we confirm this to you. In some cases an extra charge may be payable to facilitate a special request.
d) Passports and Visas
You are responsible for arranging, and must be in possession of, a valid passport and any visas required for the whole of your journey. Information about these matters is given in good faith but without responsibility on our part.
e) Holiday Insurance
Sometimes the unexpected can happen and we believe that comprehensive personal insurance can increase peace of mind. We offer 3 comprehensive insurance options in association with GOUDA. If you request our insurance cover, your Insurance Policy Document will be sent to you with your Holiday Invoice. You may also take out alternative insurance with another provider. If you take out alternative insurance, you must provide us with details of your insurance by the time you have paid for your holiday in full. Should you wish to cancel your insurance after this, please refer to the cancellation section of your policy.
We use many independent transport operators and you are bound by their conditions of carriage. We cannot list all of the supplier's terms and conditions here but you will need to have read them carefully. You will be able to find the conditions of carriage for these suppliers on their own web sites. If you are unable to do this then please contact us. If we are notified of a significant delay by the travel operator, we will contact you where reasonably possible before departure to inform you of this. If you incur additional expenses as a result, you may be able to recover these under the terms of your insurance policy, however it is your responsibility to check the extent and level of cover.
Name change, and or departure details such as date and time changes are generally not allowed by airlines and other transport providers whenever they are made. We will do our best to change the details of the booking, but please bear in mind that most airlines and other transport providers treat name and departure detail changes as a cancellation and charge accordingly. These charges will be passed on to you. Once tickets have been issued, and sometimes even before they have been issued, any changes made to the ticket, including names or initials, will result in you having to pay for the cancelled ticket and buy a new ticket at full cost.
Please note that after ticket issue cancellation will result in a loss of 100% of total cost of all travel arrangements in most cases. Please consult your reservation advisor if you have any questions.
If you want to cancel your booking or part of it, you must advise us by e-mail (email@example.com). The e-mail must include lead name and booking reference number. To cover the cost of processing your cancellation and to compensate us for the risk that we may not be able to resell your travel arrangements, we make a cancellation charge on the scale shown below. The person who made the booking is responsible for paying this charge.
|Number of days before Departure||Cancellation charge as % of total holiday cost*|
|42 days or more (excluding arrival date at campsite)||30%|
|Day 42 (including arrival date) to day 28 (excluding arrival date)||60%|
|Day 28 (including arrival date) to day 1 (excluding arrival date)||90%|
|Cancellation on the day of departure or later||100%|
*Where the standard deposit is increased to secure specific facilities or an additional payment has been made for transport tickets and these are non-refundable in whole or in part, then the scale of charges shown will be calculated based on a % of the cost of all other arrangements and the non-refundable charges will be added to that cancellation change to give the total charge. Please note that for certain travel arrangements e.g. many scheduled transport providers the cancellation charge may be higher than those shown.
On rare occasions we may have to cancel your holiday. In addition, if we make a significant change before departure (unless the change is a result of circumstances listed under the heading ‘Changes for reasons beyond our control’) or have to cancel your holiday, we may pay compensation where we feel it is appropriate. The following are guidelines only in respect of the amount which we may pay:
|Number of days between notification|
of change & departure*
|Compensation if you continue (per party as %|
of total holiday cost*)
|Compensation if you cancel (per party as %|
of total holiday cost*)
|Over 56 days||Nil||Nil|
|29 - 56 days||10%||5%|
|22 - 28 days||12.5%||5%|
|14 - 21 days||15%||10%|
|Less than 14 days||20%||10%|
*excludes insurance premiums, amendment fees and flight costs. If changes are necessary after departure, we will make alternative arrangements so that you can continue your holiday wherever possible or, if you do not wish to accept the changes, we will make arrangements for you to return home. If appropriate, we will pay compensation in line with the above.
Some changes are necessary because of unusual and unforeseeable circumstances which neither we nor our suppliers could avoid, even with all due care. These circumstances include industrial disputes, closure or congestion of ports or airports, road blockades, unavoidable technical transport problems, war, civil unrest, terrorist activity, natural or nuclear disaster, epidemic or disease, adverse weather conditions or similar events. In these circumstances, you will not be entitled to compensation.
When making any payment, we are entitled to deduct any money which you have received or are entitled to receive from the transport provider or hotelier for the complaint or claim in question. The sums payable for death, personal injury or loss/damage to belongings may be limited under these conventions and you may therefore wish to consider taking out extra insurance cover. In all cases (other than death or personal injury), the most we will have to pay if we are found liable on any basis is twice the price the person affected paid for the holiday (excluding insurance premiums and cancellation charges) but this will not be payable in all cases.
Many of the services which make up your holiday are provided by independent suppliers (including all air, sea, rail or road carrier). Those suppliers provide these services in accordance with their own terms and conditions. Some of these terms and conditions may limit or exclude the supplier’s liability to you, usually in accordance with applicable International Conventions (see above). Copies of these terms and conditions are available on request from ourselves or the supplier concerned.
You are responsible for the supervision of all members of your party under the age of 21. You must supervise your children and babies at all times unless a child is participating in any supervised activity. This is particularly important in all children’s play areas, in licensed areas, close to lakes and waterways, whilst cycling and in swimming pools, where specific ratios may apply.
In making this booking you consent to the information being passed on to relevant organizations.

We take full responsibility for ensuring that proper security measures are in place to protect your personal information. We must pass the information on to the relevant suppliers of your travel arrangements such as airlines, hotels, transport companies, etc. The information may also be provided to security or credit checking companies, public authorities such as customs/immigration if required by them, or as requested by law.
