Kingfisher Lodge - Terms & Conditions of Booking
The Holiday Contract - The following terms & conditions (the 'booking conditions') will apply to your booking. A contract between you and the owners of the lodge(s) will come into existence when we accept your completed booking confirmation form & deposit or balance payment by issuing written confirmation of your booking. The contract binds you, as the lead guest, & 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 & 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.
Deposits- A non-refundable deposit of 25% of the holiday price or £50 (whichever is greater) is payable at the time of booking. Bookings made less than eight weeks before your arrival date must be accompanied by the full amount of the holiday charge.
Balance - The Balance must be paid so as to arrive 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 your deposit will be forfeit. For security reasons please do not send cash by post.
Damage Deposit - We do not take a damage deposit. However, in making a booking you accept responsibility for any damage caused by you or any member of your party (including pets) and agree to indemnify us in full for any loss that we may incur as a result. This includes the loss of any keys. In the event of damage an invoice will be sent to the lead guest for immediate payment. Failure to compensate us for damage caused will result in court action.
