Holiday Insurance and Cancellations

You are highly recommended to obtain holiday insurance against unavoidable cancellation of your booking through accident, illness or other unforeseen circumstances. Should you need to cancel, we will try to re-let the accommodation but should this be unsuccessful, you are legally liable to pay the full amount of the accommodation. Your preferred insurance broker will be able to help you as will our local agent.
