We do not accept bookings from all female or all male parties comprising more than 3 people, or groups of single persons under the age of 25.

9 Cancellation

In the event of cancellation, the one-third deposit is strictly non refundable. If you cancel your holiday six weeks before your arrival date, the one-third deposit will only be refunded to you if we are successful in re-letting your holiday dates. Naturally we will endeavour to do this.

If you cancel your holiday after you have paid in full i.e. within six weeks of you starting your holiday, the full holiday cost becomes non refundable. Again, we will try our best to re-market the holiday, and would only return the full amount to you if we are successful in doing so. We strongly suggest that you take out your own holiday insurance to protect against such an unfortunate set of circumstances.
