A booking for a property becomes firm when a 50% deposit* of the booking is received by Mill Farm.
Up to that time it is a provisional booking and provisional bookings are held for a maximum of 24 Hours.
The full balance of the total holiday cost is payable not later than eight weeks before the holiday begins.
If the full balance is not paid on time, Mill Farm reserves the right to cancel the holiday booking, in which case the deposit will be forfeited.
The reservation of a property amounts to making a contract. We do advise that you should take out separate holiday insurance.
The deposit is non-refundable and so too is the final payment if cancellation is within 8 weeks of your arrival date*, and you may still be liable for the final balance payment.
If you have amended your holiday with us, then the cancellation policy applies to the date you had originally booked and not your new date.
Many good credit card issuers will provide you with complimentary travel insurance as part of their customer benefits.
Events beyond our control unless we say otherwise in these booking conditions, we unfortunately will not be legally responsible or have any liability to you either jointly or individually if we are prevented or delayed from carrying out our responsibilities under this contract as a result of events beyond our control and the inability or delay in carrying out such responsibilities will not be treated as a breach of these booking conditions. This means an event we could not, even with all due care, avoid, including but not limited to:
· strike, lock-out or labour dispute;
· natural disaster;
· acts of terrorism, war, riot or civil commotion;
· malicious damage;
· keeping to any law or governmental order, rule, regulation or direction, including, for example, advice from the foreign office or other health or governmental or local authority to avoid or leave a country or a regional area within a country;
