BOOKING TERMS & CONDITIONS

Terms and Conditions for bookings at Three Moors View

Three Moors View Booking Terms

1. THE CONTRACT for a short-term holiday rental will be between Three Moors View's owners (referred to as “us” or “we”) and the person making the booking. UK law will govern the Contract. The contract of hire is not effective until we have processed the deposit and confirmed receipt of it by email. The contract will be subject to these booking conditions, and must be complied with. The person booking must be at least 21 years of age at the time of booking and the booking form must list names, addresses and ages of the guests staying.

2. PAYMENT: Bookings are CONFIRMED on receipt the deposit of 25% of the holiday cost. The deposit must be paid within 7 days of booking being placed. The balance of the rental will be due for payment 8 weeks prior to the holiday commencement date and we reserve the right to cancel a holiday where payment has not been received 8 weeks before the commencement date.

If the booking is made within 8 weeks of the holiday start date the full rental will be required. If the booking is made within 14 days of the arrival date, full payment must be received within 24 hours of placing the booking. No entry to properties will be allowed without payment, in full, being cleared beforehand. Once you have a confirmed booking, (for clarity when you have paid the deposit), you are responsible for the full rental cost even if you subsequently cancel.

3. CANCELLATION:

1. CANCELLATION BY YOU

Cancellations must be immediately notified to us and confirmed in writing. The treatment of a cancellation will depend on

  1. a) the date the booking was made

  2. b) when the cancellation is made and

  3. c) the reason for the cancellation

Bookings placed from 09 January 2021 will be treated based of the reason for the cancellation, the length of time between cancellation and your holiday, and our ability to re-let the property, as follows:

National Lockdown – In the event of a national lockdown that coincides with your holiday, where you are unable to travel, and we are prevented from opening, you will receive a full refund.

Regional/Local Lockdown – In the event that the address given on the booking is put into Local/Regional Lockdown, rendering you unable to travel, and the period of restriction covers the period of your booking, you will receive a full refund.  Please note that this applies only to the address given on the booking.

Your inability (or the inability of any, some or all of your intended occupants) or disinclination to travel to and stay at your hired Cottage for any reason. This includes – but is not limited to – illness (including Covid), a requirement or recommendation to self-isolate or quarantine, a call to jury duty, incarceration, change in personal or work circumstances, family emergencies, travel delays, vehicle breakdown, and delays with public transport. These remain at your risk and do not give rise to a right to cancel or to receive a refund unless we re-let the property, other than according to the sliding scale below. You are strongly recommended to take out UK travel insurance to cover these eventualities. 

If you choose not to take out UK travel insurance then you accept responsibility for any loss that you may incur due to your cancellation.

Travel Insurance

It is the responsibility of the guest to acquire suitable travel insurance to cover their holiday, including Cancellation and Curtailment Protection Insurance.  We strongly recommend that you take out suitable insurance which will cover you for possible cancellation of your UK holiday. There are several suitable options which include cover for COVID-related cancellation (see below), or you can look for suitable cover on comparison sites such as www.gocompare.com.  We are not selling, promoting, endorsing or recommending any particular product, and do not benefit financially or have any formal relationship with any of these providers.

Refunds

All refunds will be subject to deduction of a non-refundable administration fee of £75 to cover our costs and third party costs related to the cancellation and remarketing (these costs include our admin costs,  re-marketing costs, bank fees, accounting fees and agency fees or commission payments).

A cancellation charge will be made based on the number of days notification of cancellation given by the person making the booking to Three Moors View, and whether the house is re-let for the period of the cancelled stay. Three Moors View will apply the scale shown in the table below to determine the amount of the refund payable to you.  If the house is not re-let, this will be a percentage of the total cost of the holiday. If the house is re-let, the amount refunded will be the rebooking value (which may be less than you paid) less the non-refundable administration fee of £75.

Part Cancellations – If any person(s) in your party needs to cancel, this will not affect the total cost of your booking.  In addition, no refunds are payable in the event that you cut short your stay.

Refunds for cancellations more than 8 weeks out will be made within 3 working days of the date of cancellation, which must be in writing (by email).  Refunds for cancellations made less than 8 weeks out will be made within 3 working days of the earlier of the rebooking date, or the start date of the holiday (as the refund amount will depend on the rebooking value).
