or questions you may have.
most enquiries will be responded to immediately, please bear in
mind that these are private owners and that they may not review
their e-mails every day. If, however, you do not get a response
within a couple of days, we would recommend that you telephone them.
Once you have decided on a property please check the property description
for details of the booking procedure, as these can differ from owner
to owner. You should, however, expect to pay an initial deposit
to secure the booking (typically 10% - 50% of the total rental price),
which is normally paid either by cheque or bank transfer direct
to the owner.
owner should then confirm the booking and receipt of your payment
by letter or by e-mail. The balance will usually become payable
around 8 weeks before the start of your holiday. A breakage / security
deposit is sometimes required with the balance and is typically
refundable at the end of the holiday less the cost of any breakages
and metered charges for gas / electricity / telephone if applicable
and not included in the rental rate.
is advisable that you check the cancellation terms with the owner
when booking as deposits are often non-refundable and owners may
impose a sliding scale of charges for late cancellations, particularly
after the balance has been paid. You are advised to ask for any
terms and conditions in writing.
