Booking Terms and Conditions


Should government restrictions come in to force that mean you are unable to travel and/or our properties have to close and your holiday cannot go ahead, or if a covid-19 related illness prevents you travelling, then please get in contact with us to discuss your options.
As we would still like our guests to have a holiday to look forward to, we would encourage you to postpone your trip and can offer you a change of dates at no additional cost. Dates are flexible and can be changed to anytime up to 31st December 2022. If the cost of your new dates are much higher due to peak season, then you will be charged the extra cost.
If you are unable to choose new dates straight away, we can issue you with a credit voucher than can be used towards a new booking when it is convenient for you.
In the event that you need to cancel, we advise you to have a valid travel insurance policy in place that will cover you, however please discuss with us as we may be able to offer a refund subject to management's discretion.


We offer live availability and pricing of all of our properties on our website. Prices stated may include an additional guest charge for larger groups. Bookings can only be made if the number of persons in within the maximum occupancy for the property.

If you would like us to assist you in choosing a suitable property, please fill in the enquiry form sending us your details and requirements and we can put together a tailored holiday for you.

A provisional reservation will be held for 5 days. If we have not received your deposit payment within 5 days, we regret that your reservation will lapse and the dates will be put back on sale.


If a reservation is made eight weeks or more before the arrival date, a deposit of 25% of the rental price must be paid. The balance is payable no later than eight weeks before the arrival date. If your holiday begins within eight weeks from the time of reservation then the full rental price is payable immediately.


All payments must be paid as scheduled in your confirmation email. Please use your booking reference as the payment reference if paying by bank transfer or PayPal.

Any overseas bank charges or fees associated with transferring funds are the responsibility of the guest, and Bosuns Holidays will not be held responsible for any shortage of funds.


We strongly advise that you have a travel insurance policy in place when booking your holiday with us. If for any reason you need to cancel, please contact your insurance provider to check if you are covered.

Please let us know straight away that you wish to cancel so that we can re-advertise the property for other guests to enjoy.

In the event of cancellation less than eight weeks before a holiday begins, the whole rent is payable unless we succeed in re-letting. With more than eight weeks notice, the deposit only would be forfeit. Refunds will be given under management's discretion.
