Terms and Conditions
Atlantic Escapes offers short-term holiday rentals. The Contract is between the Owners of the Property and the Client. Any issues arising under the Contract should be addressed to Atlantic Escapes. Atlantic Escapes act on behalf of the Owners. The Contract is entered into when Atlantic Escapes issues the confirmation booking email/form and will be subject to all the Booking Conditions. The Client is advised to check the confirmation booking form thoroughly.
A deposit of thirty percent (30%) of the rental fee is payable if the booking is made more than 42 days before the start of the rental. The balance shall be payable 42 days before the commencement of the rental. Non payment of the balance of the rent on or before the due date shall be construed as a cancellation of the contract by the Client. For bookings made less than 42 days before the commencement of the rental the total fee is payable.
PAY by INTERNET BANKING:
All payments shall be made to: “Atlantic Escapes Ltd” by internet banking.
PAY by CHEQUE
Unfortunately we are no longer able to accept cheques.
Any cancellation made by the Client for whatever reason shall be in writing and addressed to Atlantic Escapes, P.O.Box 12, Bude, Cornwall, EX23 8YZ. On receipt of notice of cancellation, Atlantic Escapes will seek to re-let the property for the period of booking. If Atlantic Escapes succeeds in re-letting the property for the whole period it shall refund all the monies paid less an administrative charge of Â£50 per unit booked. If Atlantic Escapes only succeeds in re-letting the property for part of the period booked it shall refund an amount equal to the money paid less (1) the rental for the period which is not re-let and (2) an administrative charge of Â£50. If Atlantic Escapes is unable to re-let the property at all then all monies paid by the Client shall be forfeit to Atlantic Escapes. Atlantic Escapes strongly recommends Clients to take out Cancellation Insurance.
