Security Policy

TERMS AND CONDITIONS

1. Confirmation of Booking, Prepayment, and Deposit:

Your booking is complete once you have made your payment on booking.com. Bookings may also be made directly by calling one of our booking managers.

1.1 Prepayment :

A prepayment is the booking deposit required to secure reservations. Prepayment for most properties is £150 and is collected before you check in to the property. In rare instance (for example, with two people simultaneously making the same online booking), your payment may be “accepted” but we may not be able to reserve the apartment for you. Be assured that your credit card is merely authorized during the online payment process, and is never charged until we confirm your reservation. In such a case, we will contact you to offer you alternative accommodations. If you do not find any of them satisfactory, you need do nothing more and your card will not be charged.

1.2 Security Deposit:

The security deposit helps ensure that the property manager is compensated for any damages – unintentional or accidental made to the property during your stay and is collected before your move into the property.

1.3 Balance:

The balance payable which is net of your prepayment amount is payable at the time of Check in. This can be paid in cash, debit or credit. Payment is made to the property manager at the time of check in.
