Bookings vary from owner to owner but generally you will be asked to pay a deposit, usually around 10-25% to confirm your reservation and complete a booking form. Full payment is usually required 8-10 weeks before the start of your holiday.
We strongly recommend that you take out adequate holiday insurance.

Once you have paid for your holiday rental in full, you will receive a confirmation of the reservation and receive arrival details and directions to the property.
