Terms and Conditions of Three Gables Holiday Letting.
Updated 15th August 2020
When you submit a booking via our online reservation system you will receive an automatically generated booking summary by email to the email address you provide in the booking form. This does not form a contract between us. A contract shall only arise when your booking is subsequently confirmed by post or email and we have received a deposit of 25% for your holiday.
Bookings are confirmed on receipt of the booking form and receiving the deposit of 25% of the holiday cost. The balance of the rental will be due for payment 56 days before the arrival date; you will be sent email notification that the balance is due. If your payment has not been received 56 days before the commencement date we will assume that you wish to cancel. If the booking is made within 56 days of the arrival date then payment will be due in full. No entry to properties will be allowed without payment in full being cleared beforehand.
During June to September and other busy periods bookings will run from Saturday to Saturday. Outside of these times we will do our best to meet your preferred dates. The letting period will run from 5.30 pm on the day of your arrival and we ask that you leave the house in a clean and tidy state and strip the beds by 9.30 am on the day of your departure.
A 25% deposit will be required to secure a booking. This is non-refundable if the holiday is cancelled. The full balance of your holiday will be due 8 weeks before the start of your stay as well as a damage deposit of £250 to be repaid to the lead hirer within 10 days of you leaving the property in a clean and tidy condition with no damage having occurred. We will send you a reminder email a week before your balance is payable and a final reminder on the due date. If payment is not made by the due date or you do not contact us, your holiday dates will be re-advertised as a cancellation..
The booked period may not be sub-let, and is limited to the people stated on the booking form,. No-one other than those named on the booking form may sleep at the property. You may invite friends to visit during the day but the number of people overnight in the property must not exceed ten. It is a condition of booking that the property is occupied as a holiday let; it in no way constitutes a tenancy.
Other charges that could be incurred during your stay:
Failure to leave in a clean condition will incur an extra cleaning charge of £30 per hour.
Overstaying (15 minutes over standard check out time) £25
Lock out charge £75, (+ locksmith costs and call out charge)
Cleaning up of dog mess from the garden and grounds £50
Cancellation. Master cancel,
All new bookings from 15th August 2020 are now protected by our Master Cancel Policy if you cancel between 60 days and 2 days prior to arrival.
Cancellations must be notified to and received by us in writing (preferably by email) and once received we will confirm and process your cancellation request.
We are protected by “Master Cancel” which removes the stress and worry from booking your holiday. You can cancel your Booking and obtain a full refund of the lodging costs you have paid for up to and including two (2) days before the Holiday Commencement Date. For example if your Holiday Commencement Date is a Saturday, then you can cancel as late as the prior Thursday, but not Friday (one (1) day prior) or Saturday (the Holiday Commencement Date). However, we ask that you give us as much notice as possible about your cancellation.
If you cancel later than two (2) days before the Holiday Commencement Date then we cannot refund your Booking as we are no longer covered by “Master Cancel” and we will have incurred costs and are unlikely to be able to re-let our accommodation in such a short period of time.
For this reason, we strongly recommend you take out your own travel insurance for UK holidays which covers booking cancellations. This will give you the peace of mind that you will get your money back if you need to cancel your holiday at almost the last minute. If you choose not to then you accept responsibility for any loss that you may incur due to your cancellation.
You will be reimbursed at check-out date of original booking.
If you have booked your ferry tickets with us travelling with Wightlink or Red Funnel, you may cancel the tickets up to 24 hours before the departure time and a refund will be issued minus an administration fee of £10 per ticket.
In the event of circumstances beyond our control(force majeure)
If for any reason we have to cancel your booking in advance due to circumstances beyond our control for example fire, flood, exceptional weather conditions, epidemics, destruction/damage to the property (“force majeure“) you will be refunded the full amount of the booking. If we have to terminate your holiday early for the above reasons you will be refunded part of the lodging costs based on the time remaining of the booking. This will be the full extent of the liability of the Owners. No additional compensation, expenses or costs will be payable.
