These remain at Your risk and do not give rise to a right to cancel or to receive a refund unless We re-let the property, other than according to the sliding scale below. You are strongly recommended to take out UK travel insurance to cover these eventualities. If you choose not to take out UK travel insurance, then you accept responsibility for any loss that you may incur due to your cancellation.
e/ Cancellations must be notified to Trevalgas Farm by phone and email and once received in writing we will confirm the cancellation request.
f/ Trevalgas Farm will apply the scale shown in the table below to bookings to determine the amount of the charge, which shall be a percentage of the total cost of the holiday.
Number of days before start of holiday that notification of cancellation is received*
The percentage of total booking value payable by the Customer
- More than 56 days. 5% of the booking cost
- 56 to 14 days. 50% of the booking cost
- 0 – 13 days 100% of the booking cost
*In order to ensure speedy receipt, and thereby processing, of cancellations, Trevalgas Farm recommends that the Customer sends written notification of cancellation by email requesting confirmed receipt. The effective date of cancellation is when written notification is received by Trevalgas Farm. Any amounts due for refunding will be made within 14 Days.
h/ On receipt of the cancellation, the above Charts state the amount that the Customer remains liable for at that point in time. Trevalgas Farm will then use reasonable endeavours to obtain a replacement booking. In the event that Trevalgas Farm is successful in obtaining a replacement booking, Trevalgas Farm will refund to the Customer the total amount paid by the Customer for the booking less an admin fee of £50 and less the difference in price between the Customers’ booking and the replacement booking if one is made.
For example: A £1000 booking, fully paid, cancelled and relet for £900, means that the original Customer will be refunded as follows, £1000 – £50 admin fee equals £950, – £100 rebooking shortfall, = Refund of £850.
i/ It is the responsibility of the Customer to acquire suitable travel insurance for themselves and their party to cover the booking. Trevalgas Farm strongly recommends that the Customer acquires suitable insurance to cover circumstances beyond the Customers’ control such as, but not limited to, jury duty, incarceration, change in personal or work circumstances, military service, illness – including Covid and shielding, family emergencies and travel delays.
Covid is also now a known risk and it is possible for you to insure your holiday against it. This can include the customer or any of the party having Covid, the customer or any of the party having to isolate or quarantine, or you wishing to shield any Members of the party.
