Terms & Conditions

Home | Terms & Conditions

Bookings are subject to the following terms and conditions.

  1. Booking Process
    A contract between you and the owner will come into existence when payment is received, and a booking confirmation is issued showing the confirmed holiday dates. The contract binds you and all the members of your party. It is your responsibility to ensure that all members of your party accept the terms of the contract set out in these terms and conditions of booking. Failure to disclose all relevant information or comply with these terms may lead to termination of the contract & loss of the booking.
  2. Payments
    You will be asked to pay a non-refundable booking fee at the time of booking. A 20% deposit of the holiday cost is payable at the time of booking which includes your non-refundable booking fee. Bookings made less than eight weeks before your arrival date must be paid in full. The balance must be paid no later than eight weeks before the commencement of your holiday. If the balance is not received by the due date, then your holiday will be treated as a cancellation, and you will remain liable to pay the balance of the holiday cost.
  3. Refundable Security Deposit
    A security deposit a minimum of £150 (unless otherwise stated) is required and will be pre-authorised against your debit or credit card 7 days before arrival and will be aborted 14 working days after your departure date. The deposit will be held against damage, breakages and extra cleaning if necessary.
  4. Cancellations / Insurance
    Once the deposit and booking fee has been paid and the booking has been confirmed you are liable for all charges against the booking as a binding contact has been deemed. All cancellations must be notified in writing to The Island Holiday Company. If you cancel your holiday more than eight weeks before it is due to start, then your deposit will be refunded less the non-refundable booking fee. If you cancel more than four weeks before the holiday, then 50% will be refunded less the non-refundable booking fee. If you cancel less, then four weeks before the holiday the full balance remains due and is not refundable. We strongly advise that you take out comprehensive travel insurance to cover cancellations. If you choose not to, then you accept responsibility for any loss that you may incur due to your cancellation.


    If you are unable to attend because you or a member of your party are experiencing symptoms of Covid-19 we can transfer your booking to a later date subject to availability. Where there is any difference in cost of the accommodation you will be required to pay the difference where the cost of the new booking is higher and where the cost is lower, you will be reimbursed the difference. If you wish to cancel your booking, then our normal cancellation policy will apply.
