We offer a worry free cancellation policy for those that book direct with us- we offer refunds in case of government travel warnings, and lockdowns!

Our revised Corona policy for bookings from 14th January 2022

  • Deposit of 30% payable on booking to secure the booking
  • €25 of deposit is an admin fee, and is non refundable, remainder of deposit is refundable up to 30 days before arrival
  • Balance due 14 days before arrival
  • Free cancellation up to 7 days before arrival in case of a change in government regulations / travel warning / lockdown since the first payment was made, that is due to corona virus (minus the admin fee)
  • Free change of dates / voucher if you need to cancel less than 7 days before arrival due to a government travel warning / lockdown due to corona virus
  • Opportunity to purchase travel cancellation insurance in case of corona virus or any other illness – cost starts at 5% of your holiday price.  For more information, see the links below

Please note that if you have booked with an online travel agent, the cancellation policy as per your booking applies.  This cancellation policy is for direct bookings only.

In light of the Corona Virus Outbreak, and the potential ongoing uncertainty, we have adjusted out cancellation policies going forward.

Please note that if you, or one of your party, does not want to travel for any reason, or cannot travel due to any illness, or from contracting corona virus, or having to quarantine due to being in contact with someone with corona virus, or are unable to stay due to your vaccination / covid status, you will not be entitled to a refund.

We recommend you take out cancellation travel insurance to cover you for this, and details on  suggested travel insurance, that costs from as little as 5% of your stay, are below.

This insurance does offer cancellation cover in case of you needing to cancel due to specific instances for corona virus, including contracting corona virus before travel, or having symptoms before travel.  Please make sure you read and understand the policy in full before committing, and make sure the policy is correct for you.  You are insured immediately if you take the insurance out within 3 days of making a booking with us.  If you take the policy out more than 3 days after booking, you are covered from 10 days after signing the policy.  Please note that the policy is with Europaeische Reiseversicherung, and not with ourselves, and any claims should be directly with the insurance company.
