Most of these changes would be minor and we will advise you of them as soon as they may be applicable. If we are forced to cancel the property rental because of force majeue or for any reason that makes the property unfit for rental, you will have the choice of cancelling the booking and accepting a full refund of all monies paid to us or agreeing an alternate date with us. Please note that we are not liable for any consequential loss or incidental expenditure resulting from the cancellation of your holiday.
It is the responsibility of the Guests to ensure that their personal possessions are insured. We cannot accept any liability for theft of, loss of or damage to personal possessions.
