BOOKING TERMS & CONDITIONS
A deposit of one third of the rental fee is payable at the time of booking, with the balance due no later than 6 weeks before the start of the rental period. Non-payment of the balance will be taken as a cancellation of the booking. For bookings made less than 6 weeks before the start of the rental period, the total fee is payable at the time of booking. Payments should be made either by cheque payable to R & J GILES or preferably, by online banking. Account details can be found on the Booking Form. Cheques can only be accepted if there is enough time before the start of the rental period for the payment to be cleared into our bank account. For this reason last minute bookings can only be accepted if payment is made electronically.
2. CANCELLATION BY THE GUESTS
Any cancellation made by you the guest, for whatever reason, should be in writing (post or email). On receipt of the notice of cancellation we will try to re-let the cottage/barn for the period of the booking. If we succeed in re-letting the property for the whole of the period, all the monies paid will be refunded, less an administration charge of £30. If we only succeeds in re-letting the property for part of the period booked, you the guest will forfeit an amount equal to the remainder of the booking and be liable for an administration charge of £30. If we are unable to re-let the property at all then all the monies paid by you the guest shall be forfeited to us. For this reason, we strongly recommends that you the guest takes out your own holiday cancellation insurance.
