Booking Terms and Conditions
You acknowledge that by making a booking, you are bound by our terms and conditions.
All arrangements are made subject to the following terms and conditions and by paying a booking deposit the Holidaymaker is confirming that he/she accepts and agrees to be bound by these booking conditions. Telephone transactions where debit/credit card details have been supplied are also considered as meeting this requirement. When you book accommodation either via the Internet or telephone, your booking is confirmed immediately and it is at this time a binding contract comes into existence and you guarantee that you have the authority to accept and do accept on behalf of your party the terms of these booking conditions. You must be at least 21 years old to make a booking with us, please note that single sex parties or groups of young adults (under 21) may only be accepted at selected accommodation and we may require a higher refundable security/damage deposit. Email confirmation of your booking will be sent to you once the reservation deposit has been received and a confirmation email will also follow once full payment has been taken.
The contract is subject to these booking terms and conditions, all booking conditions will apply to each and every booking made with The Turquoise Collection. Once the contract is made, it is the accommodation providers' responsibility to provide you with what you have booked and it is your responsibility to pay for the accommodation in full before you travel.
All relevant documentation will be sent to you via email, it is important to check carefully all the details of your booking once you receive it. The Turquoise Collection will not be responsible for any information you do not receive, as a result of your failure to provide a valid e-mail address. Your contract with us will be governed by English Law and is subject to the jurisdiction of the English Courts at all times.
We reserve the right to make changes to these terms and conditions from time to time without prior notice which will take effect from the date of posting on the website. You are responsible for regularly reviewing these terms and conditions. Continued use of the website or service after any such changes shall constitute your consent to such changes.

- All members of your party, including infants, have a valid passport.
- All members of your party, including infants have adequate travel insurance to cover your holiday.

- All payments are made by you by the dates set out in your booking confirmation and any revised/updated booking confirmations subsequently issued, this includes but is not limited to deposits, part-deposits, accidental damage waiver fees and security deposits. Failure to make any payment by the due date will be assumed and taken as your instruction to cancel your booking, in the event that the booking is cancelled as a result on non-payment it will not be deemed a cancellation by The Turquoise Collection.
- That the number of people occupying the property will not exceed the number stated on the holiday confirmation.
- That the property will be used solely for the purpose of the holiday by the holidaymaker and his/her party.
- To show due consideration for other parties (to include, but not limited to, refraining from abuses of the property and/or dangerous, offensive or rude behaviour to the property owner, his representative or any third parties such as neighbours)
- To keep the property and all furniture, utensils, equipment, fixtures and fittings in or on the property in the same state of repair and condition as at the commencement of the holiday and to ensure that at the end of the holiday the property is left in the same state of order and cleanliness in which it was found. The property owner reserves the right to levy the holidaymakers occupancy and for any sub-sequential loss.
- To report as soon as possible to the property owner (or his representative) any breakages or damage caused by the holidaymaker during the holiday and to reimburse the property owner with the cost of replacement. The property owner reserves the right to make a claim against the holidaymaker for any repair or loss as a result of damage caused.
- To arrive at or after the stated check in time on the arrival day and to vacate the property by the stated check out time on the day of departure unless prior arrangements have been agreed with the property owner, The Turquoise Collection Ltd. and/or the holiday confirmation states otherwise.
- not allow any person other than guests booked and staying in the property for their holiday to use the facilities and amenities of the property.
- To notify all other members of the party of these undertakings.
- In the event of a breach of any of the undertakings set out, the property owner (or his representative), or The Turquoise Collection Ltd. can refuse to allow the Holidaymaker to take possession of the property or make the Holidaymaker leave the property before the end of the holiday. in either case the Holidaymaker shall be deemed to have cancelled the booking and the Holidaymaker shall have no claim for compensation or reimbursement whatsoever.
The Holidaymaker agrees to take care around the property and gardens and consider the risks posed by balconies and swimming pools to children. Swimming pools should be accessed by the steps and not by jumping or diving in. Please take the time on arrival to familiarise yourself with the layout of the property and swimming pool depth. In particular if you are travelling with children, please take the time to point out to them any areas in which they should take particular care such as the pool or on balconies. Parents are responsible for the actions of their children at all times. Please ensure that children are not left unsupervised at any time during your holiday and take extra care with swimming pools, balconies, roads, unfenced areas, etc, as it is likely the accommodation will not have the same child precautions as you are accustomed to in your own home.
On your holiday please be just as vigilant as you would be at home and ensure you take sensible precautions to protect your belongings and personal safety. Like many resorts in the Mediterranean, unfortunately Kalkan has seen some Burglaries at villa and apartment accommodation in recent years. Whilst this is a relatively rare occurrence we ask our guests to be vigilant in ensuring accommodation is properly secured and all windows and terrace/ balcony doors are locked whenever the property is not occupied and at night. Additionally take care to lock your rental property when you are relaxing around the swimming pool or perhaps enjoying an afternoon snooze or siesta. Safes are provided at some property in the collection, but it should be noted that their use is entirely at guests own risk, and that safes cannot be relied upon to provide absolute security for their contents in the event of a burglary where there is sufficient intent. Adequate travel insurance is essential to cover your personal belongings - there are usually limitations placed on money and valuables so check your policy carefully. In the event that you should lose any items of value whilst on holiday through theft or otherwise, you must report the facts immediately to the local police or other competent authority and obtain a written report. If a report is not obtained it will be difficult for you to pursue any claim through your holiday insurance.
The ground surface inside and outside the accommodation may be wet due to the maid cleaning them on arrival, departure and any other day when the maid service is carried out. Be aware of the ground condition at all times and be cautious by taking the necessary steps to ensure your safety and especially that of children and the elderly. At other times, ground areas open to the elements or subject to dousing in water from the swimming pool may be wet and caution is required at all times. Please take extra care on stairs, most staircases are marble or tiled to be cool underfoot in the heat and some properties may have spiral staircases or may not have handrails. Be cautious when using tiled wet-room bathrooms and/or shower rooms with glass screens.
Please be very careful with windows, especially full length glass patio doors. The glass may not be toughened and occasionally, in a strange environment, accidents occur more easily than they can do so at home.
Pools, garden and general maintenance
All properties on our website are maintained by the staff who have access to the pool/garden area. Gardens have to be maintained on a regular basis and it is simply not possible for this to be carried out on 'change-over' days. With regard to pool maintenance; pools are checked on a regular basis and this is normally carried out very early in the morning to avoid disruption to our customers. However, neither pool nor garden personnel have fixed hours, so it is not possible for us to advise you of the exact date or time of their visit. We ask for your cooperation when staff visit, as it is imperative to keep the properties well maintained for our clients' enjoyment throughout the year.
Access to the holiday accommodation is available from the stated check in time on your arrival day and we will ask you to vacate your holiday accommodation by the stated check out time at the latest on the agreed departure date, to enable cleaning and preparations for the next guests. Early departures will be charged to the full booked duration of the stay. Reimbursements will not be given. Holiday accommodation are reserved exclusively for the people confirmed as guests at the time of booking and no other persons are permitted to stay at the accommodatrion unless agreed by us in writing prior to the rental period.
Under no circumstances will animals be allowed in the holiday accommodation (with the exception of guide dogs used to aid sight or hearing).
The tenant agrees not to smoke or allow smoking inside the rental property at any time.
We have decided to replace the traditional Security Deposit charge with an Accidental Damage Waiver (ADW). This is to cover minor accidental damage that may occur in your accommodation during your holiday, up to the value of £250 for apartment stays and £500 for villa stays per incident. There are a small number of properties where a refundable deposit will still be applicable, in which case you will be informed at the time of booking of the amount (this is also noted on the villa details page).
The Accidental Damage Waiver does not cover intentional, wilful and negligent behaviour. If the cost of accidental damage exceeds £250 for apartments or £500 for villas per incident, or is deemed to have been caused by wilful and negligent behaviour, a charge will be made locally or an invoice will be sent to you with 28 days of your return to the UK. You will be responsible for any amount payable in respect of any damage which exceeds the limits shown in the the paragraph above.
In the event that the Guest fails to pay any amount due to the owner of the holiday accommodation for loss or damage at holiday accommodation, the owner of the holiday accommodation reserves the right to exercise any legal remedies to pursue the amount owed from the Guest.
Where a refundable security deposit has been paid, this deposit will be retained by us or local supplier in part payment of the losses you cause. Please take care to secure the property at all times and take care of property keys. The cost of replacement keys will be deducted from your security deposit.

Number of nights
Out of season bookings
The 'Season' in Kalkan runs from 15th May to 15th October.
In Turkey, all work by private construction companies, in places designated as tourist areas, is prohibited between 15th May and 15th October. In previous years some builders have agreed to finish sooner, at the request of the local Belediye, but they have a right to continue until the official deadline. Until the 15th May, construction work, some of which may be noisy, is permitted between the hours of 8am and 8pm.
If the Holidaymaker wishes to make a booking outside of the 'Season', it is possible that construction projects may be going on in the area. The Turquoise Collection Ltd. cannot be expected to know the timings and exact locations of every building project in Kalkan and so bookings outside the 'season' cannot be guaranteed to be unaffected by construction works.
