To avoid any misunderstanding we would remind you that a verbal or written reservation constitutes a legal contract. In the event of a cancellation/or curtailment, both parties should endeavour to re-let the accommodation. Should neither party succeed, then the person making the reservation is legally liable to pay 70% of the total value of the booking. However, cancellation within 5 days of expected arrival will result in the full cost being payable. We strongly advise that you insure against this situation.
