2) Can you put my dates on hold?
Yes, we can put your dates on hold until the end of the working day (6pm) to give you time to look for flights and finalise any arrangements.
3) What is your changeover day?
Our main changeover days are Monday and Saturday, this is to coincide with the majority of flights coming from the UK into Dalaman Airport. However, we try to be as flexible where possible (depending on the property and time of year). Please ask us, and we will do the best we can to accommodate you on your chosen dates.
4) When do I need to pay the final balance?
Your final balance will be due 10 weeks before your departure date. We will send you an invoice around 14 weeks before your departure. If your booking is made less than 10 weeks prior to your departure date, the full balance will be payable. Balances can be paid by credit/debit card, cheque or bank transfer.
Note: Payments made by credit or debit card will be subject to a 2.0% charge reflecting our incurred costs.
5) Do I have to pay a damage deposit?
We ask for a £250.00 damage deposit (minimum, the amount can vary at certain properties), which is added on to your final balance. The damage deposit is refunded to you by cheque within 10 days of your return (providing there is no loss or damage at the property). For hotel bookings a damage deposit is not taken in advance, however a credit card may need to be provided on arrival.
6) What is your cancellation policy?
We must be notified of any cancellations in writing. Your cancellation will become effective at the time we receive your notice of cancellation. We will confirm your cancellation to you and tell you of any charges payable.
