Terms & Conditions

By reading and ticking your acceptance of these terms and conditions on the booking form this acts as the rental agreement between us and yourselves.

1. Agreement

1.1 These terms and conditions form the basis of the agreement between you and Burgundy Villas for the holiday rental of the Property named in the Invoice/Confirmation("the Property") together with all other conditions set out below.

1.2 By signing the Booking Form you agree that you are over 18 years of age and that you accept full responsibility for all payments due and for the consequences of any actions of all persons who will use the Property during your holiday. If payment is made by credit/debit card by telephone, you will have deemed to have read all the Booking Conditions and agreed to be bound by them.

2. Booking

2.1 Burgundy Villas will confirm the booking on receipt of the Booking Form and a deposit of one third of the holiday rental fee ("the Deposit").

2.2 Once Burgundy Villas has confirmed the booking from you and has received the Deposit then an agreement exists between us on these terms and conditions.

2.3 Burgundy Villas will accept a provisional booking and reserve the Property for your holiday provided that we receive the Deposit from you within 7 working days.

2.5 No subsequent changes may be made to any part of the Booking Form without Burgundy Villas's express written approval.

3. Final Payment

3.1 The balance of the holiday rental fee less any Deposit will become due 8 weeks before the start of the holiday. Burgundy Villas will not send you a reminder or a receipt unless you have requested one and sent us a stamped addressed envelope at the time of booking. If the balance is not received on time Burgundy Villas reserves the right to cancel your booking and retain the Deposit.

4. Cancellation

4.1 You may cancel your booking at any time provided you do so in writing to Burgundy Villas but you will remain liable for the full balance of the holiday rental fee if done so within 8 weeks of the date of the rental period. However, Burgundy Villas will seek to re-let the Property for all or part of the booking period and, if successfully, will refund the money paid by you less an administrative charge of £25.

4.2 Burgundy Villas reserves the right to re-let at a discount or for a shorter period in which case we will pay the refund or a proportion of it if the Property is re-let for a shorter period, less the discount and administration charge.

4.3 Burgundy Villas does not operate any scheme of cancellation or travel insurance and you should obtain your own insurance cover for the holiday.

4.4 Burgundy Villas reserves the right to cancel the booking anytime in the event of circumstances beyond the reasonable control or if in the reasonable opinion of Burgundy Villas it is necessary to undertake essential works at the Properties. In these unlikely circumstances Burgundy Villas will endeavour to offer a suitable alternative holiday. If no such alternative holiday is agreed then Burgundy Villas will refund in full all money received by us for the booking. Burgundy Villas will not otherwise be liable for any loss incurred by you as a result of the cancellation.

5. Change of Booking

5.1 Burgundy Villas will endeavour to assist you in a transfer of a booking to an alternative property or an alternative date at your request if made within the 8 weeks from the date the rental is due to begin and an administrative charge of £25 will be made in such a case in addition to any increased rent due on the alternative property.

5.2 Changes cannot be accepted within one month of the start date of the holiday. If a change results in a reduction in the length of the holiday it will be regarded as a cancellation.
