References to your agent means Turquoise Collections Limited ("Agent").

  1. he/she has read these Booking Conditions and has the authority to and does agree to be bound by them;
  1. he/she consents to our use of personal data and is authorised on behalf of all persons named on the booking to disclose their personal details to us, including where applicable special categories of data (such as information on health conditions or disabilities and dietary requirements);

1.     Booking & Paying For Your Arrangements

A booking is made with us when you pay your Agent a deposit (or full payment if you are booking within 12 weeks of departure) and your Agent has issued you with a booking confirmation on our behalf. We reserve the right to decline to instruct your Agent to issue a booking confirmation at our absolute discretion. A binding contract will come into existence between you and us as soon as your Agent has issued you with a booking confirmation on our behalf and of which will confirm the details of your booking.

Upon receipt, if you believe that any details on the booking confirmation or any other document are wrong you must advise your Agent immediately who will advise us,as changes cannot be made later and it may harm your rights if we are not notified of any inaccuracies in any document within seven days of our sending it out.

The balance of the cost of your arrangements (including any applicable surcharge) is due not less than 12 weeks prior to scheduled departure. If we do not receive this balance in full and on time, we reserve the right to treat your booking as cancelled by you in which case the cancellation charges outlined in clause 12 will become payable. 

2.     Accuracy

We endeavour to ensure that all the information, translations and prices both on your Agent's website and in any advertising material that your Agents publish are accurate. However, occasionally changes and errors occur and we reserve the right to correct prices and other details in such circumstances. You must check the current price and all other details relating to the travel arrangements that you wish to book before you make your booking.

3.     Prices

We reserve the right to amend advertised prices at any time, in particular those listed on your Agent's website. We also reserve the right to correct errors in both advertised and confirmed prices. You must check the price of your chosen accommodation at the time of booking.

 4.     Insurance

Adequate travel insurance is a condition of your contract with us. You must be satisfied that your insurance fully covers the requirements for your stay at your chosen accommodation, including pre-existing medical conditions, cancellation charges, medical expenses and repatriation in the event of accident or illness. If you choose to travel without adequate insurance cover, we will not be liable for any losses howsoever arising, in respect of which insurance cover would otherwise have been available.

5.     Events Beyond Our Control

Except where otherwise expressly stated in these Booking Conditions we will not be liable or pay you compensation if our contractual obligations to you are affected by Events Beyond Our Control. For the purpose of these Booking Conditions, this means any event beyond our or our supplier's control, the consequences of which could not have been avoided even if all reasonable measures had been taken. Examples include warfare and acts of terrorism (and threat thereof), civil strife, significant risks to human health such as the outbreak of serious disease at the travel destination or natural disasters such as floods, earthquakes or weather conditions which make it impossible to travel safely to the travel destination or remain at the travel destination, the act of any government or other national or local authority including port or river authorities, industrial dispute, labour strikes, lock closure, natural or nuclear disaster, fire, chemical or biological disaster, unavoidable technical problems with transport and all similar events beyond our or the supplier(s) concerned's control.

6.     Your Behaviour

All our guests are expected to conduct themselves in an orderly and acceptable manner and not to disrupt the enjoyment of others. If in our opinion or in the opinion of any accommodation / accommodation manager or host, representative or any other person in authority, your behaviour or that of any member of your party is causing or is likely to cause distress, danger or annoyance to any other guests or any third party, or damage to the property, we reserve the right to terminate your booking with us immediately. In the event of such termination our liability to you and/or your party will cease and you and/or your party will be required to leave your accommodation immediately. We will have no further obligations to you and/or your party. No refunds for lost accommodation / chalet or any other arrangements will be made and we will not pay any expenses or costs incurred as a result of termination. You and/or your party may also be required to pay for loss and/or damage caused by your actions and we will hold you and each member of your party jointly and individually liable for any damage or losses caused by you or any member of your party. Full payment for any such damage or losses must be paid directly to the accommodation / chalet manager or representative or other supplier prior to departure. If you fail to make payment, you will be responsible for meeting any claims (including legal costs) subsequently made against us as a result of your actions together with all costs we incur in pursuing any claim against you.

We cannot be held responsible for the actions or behaviour of other guests or individuals who have no connection with your booking or with us.

7.     Conditions of Suppliers

Many of the arrangements which make up your accommodation booking are provided by independent suppliers. Those suppliers provide these services in accordance with their own terms and conditions which will form part of your contract with us. Some of these terms and conditions may limit or exclude the supplier's liability to you, usually in accordance with applicable International Conventions. Copies of the relevant parts of these terms and conditions are available on request from us or the supplier concerned.

8.     Excursions and Extras

Please note that we do not provide or arrange excursions. We (or a local representative) may put you in touch with local organisers of excursions if you request but we can have no liability for such excursions, as your contract for such excursions will be with a local company providing the services and not with us.

9.     Cutting Your Arrangements Short

If you are forced to return home early, we cannot refund the cost of your accommodation stay which you have not used. If you cut short your accommodation booking and return home early in circumstances where you have no reasonable cause for complaint about the standard of accommodation and services provided, we will not offer you any refund for that part of your accommodation not completed, or be liable for any associated costs you may incur. Depending on the circumstances, your travel insurance may offer cover for curtailment and we suggest that any claim is made directly with them.

 10.     Special Requests

Any special requests must be advised to your Agent at the time of booking (e.g. room location or a particular facility etc.). You should then confirm your requests in writing. Whilst every effort will be made by us to try and arrange your reasonable special requests, we cannot guarantee that they will be fulfilled.  The fact that a special request has been noted on your confirmation invoice or any other documentation or that it has been passed on is not confirmation that the request will be met. Failure to meet any special request will not be a breach of contract on our part unless the request has been specifically confirmed by us.  We do not accept bookings that are conditional upon any special request being met.

 11.     Disabilities and Medical Problems

We are not a specialist disabled travel company, but we will do our utmost to cater for any special requirements you may have. If you or any member of your party has any medical problem or disability which may affect your booking, please provide us with full details before you make your booking so that we can try to advise you as to the suitability of your chosen accommodation. We may require you to produce a doctor's certificate certifying that you are fit to participate. Acting reasonably, if we are unable to properly accommodate the needs of the person(s) concerned, we will not confirm your booking or if you did not give us full details at the time of booking, we will cancel it and impose applicable cancellation charges when we become aware of these details.

12. Out of Season Bookings

Non-essential building work in Kalkan is usually prohibited in designated tourist areas between 15th May and 01st October. If you choose to travel to Kalkan outside of these dates, third party construction work may be visible and/or noise audible from your chosen property. Whilst we have no control over the extent of these external works, we find that they usually take place between the hours of 8am and 8pm. However, this may be subject to change and we recommend that you check with the local Belediye for any planned building schedules. As any external construction works are outside of our control, we are unable to notify you in advance of any work near to your selected property or accept liability for any disturbance these works may cause.

13.     If You Change or Cancel Your Single Service Booking


If, after confirmation, you wish to change your booking in any way, you must notify your Agent as soon as possible who will inform us and we will endeavour to make such changes. Where we can meet a request, all changes may be subject to payment of an amendment fee as well as any costs and charges incurred by us and/or incurred or imposed by any of our suppliers in making this change. Your Agent will inform you if such fee becomes applicable.

Note: Certain accommodation may not be changeable after confirmation and any alteration may result in a cancellation charge of 100%.


If you, or any member of your party, decides to cancel your booking, you must notify your Agent by recorded delivery post or by email who will then notify us.  Your notice of cancellation will only take effect when it is received in writing by your Agent  at their offices and will be effective from the date on which your Agent receives it. The person to notify us of any cancellation must be the same person that originally made the booking.

Should one or more member of a party cancel, it may increase the per person price of the accommodation of those still travelling and you will be liable to pay this increase.

Since we incur costs in cancelling your arrangements, you will have to pay the cancellation charges as follows:


  Date cancellation received:   Charge payable:
  More than 70 Days Before Holiday Start Date   Loss of deposit plus any non-refundable fully paid ancillary reservations
  69-50 Days Before Holiday Start Date   50% plus any non-refundable fully paid ancillary reservations
  49-40 Days Before Holiday Start Date   60% plus any non-refundable fully paid ancillary reservations
  39-31 Days Before Holiday Start Date   80% plus any non-refundable fully paid ancillary reservations
  30-0 Days Before Holiday Start Date   100% plus any non-refundable fully paid ancillary reservations


Important Note: Certain arrangements may not be amended after they have been confirmed and any alteration or cancellation could incur a cancellation charge of up to 100%.

Where possible, we will deduct the cancellation charge(s) from any monies you have already paid to us.

14.     If We Change or Cancel Your Single Service Booking

We may in exceptional circumstances be required to cancel your booking in which case a full refund of all monies paid will be made to you. We regret we cannot meet any expenses or losses that you may incur as a result of change or cancellation.

Very rarely, we may be forced due to Events Beyond Our Control (please see clause 5) to change or terminate all or some of your arrangements after departure. If this situation does occur, we regret we will be unable to make any refunds, pay you compensation or meet any costs or expenses you incur as a result.  

15.     Our Responsibilities for your Single Service Booking

(1) We have a duty to provide the services booked and to select any sub-contractors and/or suppliers of the services making up your booking with us with reasonable skill and care. Our liability will be limited to where it is proven that we have breached that duty and damage to you has been caused.

(2) We will not be responsible or pay you compensation for any injury, illness, death, loss, damage, expense, cost or other claim of any description if it results from:

   a) the act(s) and/or omission(s) of the person(s) affected; or

   b) the act(s) and/or omission(s) of a third party unconnected with the provision of the services contracted for and which were unforeseeable or unavoidable; or

   c) unusual or unforeseeable circumstances beyond ours or our supplier(s) control, the consequences of which could not have been avoided even if all due care had been exercised; or

   d) an event which either ourselves or suppliers could not, even with all due care, have foreseen or forestalled.

(3) We limit the amount of compensation we may have to pay you if we are found liable under this clause:

   a) damage to any luggage or personal possessions and money,

The maximum amount we will have to pay you in respect of these claims is an amount equivalent to the excess on your insurance policy which applies to this type of loss per person in total because you are required to have adequate insurance in place to cover any losses of this kind

   b) Claims not falling under (a) above and which don't involve injury, illness or death

The maximum amount we will have to pay you in respect of these claims is twice the price paid by you in total. This maximum amount will only be payable where everything has gone wrong and you have not received any benefit at all from your booking.

(4) It is a condition of our acceptance of liability under this clause that you notify any claim to ourselves and our supplier(s) strictly in accordance with the complaints procedure set out in these conditions.

(5) Where any payment is made, the person(s) receiving it (and their parent or guardian if under 18 years) must also assign to ourselves or our insurers any rights they may have to pursue any third party and must provide ourselves and our insurers with all assistance we may reasonably require.

(6) Please note, we cannot accept any liability for any damage, loss or expense or other sum(s) of any description: (a) which on the basis of the information given to us by you concerning your booking prior to our accepting it, we could not have foreseen you would suffer or incur if we breached our contract with you; or (b) relate to any business.

(7) We will not accept responsibility for services or facilities which do not form part of our agreement or where they are not advertised by ourselves For example any excursion you book whilst away, or any service or facility which any other supplier agrees to provide for you.

16.     Complaints

We make every effort to ensure that your chosen accommodation runs smoothly but if you do have a problem during your stay, please inform your property manager immediately who will endeavour to put things right. Your property manager's contact details will be found on your pre-departure information provided to you by your Agent. 

If the problem cannot be resolved and you wish to complain further, you must send formal written notice of your complaint to your Agent at their head office within 28 days of the end of your stay, giving your booking reference and all other relevant information who will then pass it onto us. Please keep your letter concise and to the point. This will assist your Agent  to quickly identify your concerns and speed up the response to you. Failure to follow the procedure set out in this clause may affect your Agent's, our and the applicable supplier's ability to investigate your complaint, and will affect your rights under this contract.

​17.     Entry, Passport, Visa and Immigration Requirements, Safety & Health Formalities

It is your responsibility to check and fulfil the entry, passport, visa, immigration requirements, safety and health formalities applicable to your itinerary. We can only provide general information about this. You must check requirements for your own specific circumstances with the relevant Embassies and/or Consulates, the Foreign, Commonwealth and Development Office ('FCDO') and your own doctor as applicable. Requirements and the safety of the countries and areas in which you will be travelling to, do change and you must check the up to date position in good time before departure in order to make your decisions accordingly.

Most countries now require passports to be valid for at least 6 months after your return date. If your passport is in its final year, you should check with the Embassy of the country you are visiting. For further information contact the Passport Office on 0870 5210410 or visit

For European travel you should obtain a UK Global Health Insurance Card (UK GHIC) prior to departure unless you are able to rely upon an existing European Health Insurance Card (EHIC).

Up to date travel advice can be obtained from the FCDO by visiting

Non British passport holders, including other EU nationals, should obtain up to date advice on entry, passport, visa, health and immigration requirements from the Embassy, High Commission or Consulate of your destination or country(ies) through which you are travelling.

We do not accept any responsibility if you cannot travel, or incur any other loss because you have not complied with any entry, passport, visa, immigration requirements or health formalities. You agree to reimburse us in relation to any fines or other losses which we incur as a result of your failure to comply with any entry passport, visa, immigration requirements or health formalities.

Please note: The impacts of Brexit may change your visa, ticket and health requirements. Third country nationals may require an airport transit visa when passing through EU Member States. There is the potential for disruption at borders when travelling between the UK and EU Member States and you should allow sufficient time for this when planning any onward travel. You should check any impacts of Brexit on your travel, in advance of your departure, to ensure that you fulfil the requirements post-Brexit, including any passport validly requirements.
