Booking Terms and Conditions
Bookings are subject to the following terms and conditions as agreed to at the time of booking.
- A contract between you and the owners will come into existence when we receive payment and accept your booking by issuing a confirmation of booking for the holiday dates requested. The contract binds you & all the members of your party. It is your responsibility to ensure that all members of your party accept the terms of the contract set out in these booking terms & conditions. Failure to disclose all relevant information or comply with these terms may lead to termination of the contract & loss of the booking.
- A deposit of 25% of the holiday price is payable at the time of booking. If the holiday is cancelled before 60 days from the arrival date, a full refund will be made.
- Bookings made less than 60 days before your arrival date must be accompanied by the full amount of the holiday charge.
- The balance must be paid so as to arrive no later than 60 days before the commencement of your holiday. If the balance is not received by the due date then your holiday will be treated as a cancellation and the client will remain liable to pay the balance of the holiday.
- All cancellations must be immediately notified by telephone and then in writing. If you cancel your holiday more than 60 days before it is due to start then your deposit will be forfeit. If you cancel less than 60 days prior to the holiday then the full balance remains due and is not refundable.
- We strongly advise that you take out comprehensive travel insurance. If you choose not to then you accept responsibility for any loss that you may incur due to your cancellation.
- Your booking will not be cancelled by Italian Cookery Courses except in exceptional circumstances beyond our control. Notification will be given of the cancellation as soon as possible and we will promptly refund all payments made for your holiday. Our liability for cancellation will be limited to payments made to us.
- The number of persons using the accommodation at any time must not exceed two and only those people listed on the booking form can occupy the room. We reserve the right to terminate the booking without notice and without refund in case of a breach of this condition.

- We or our representative reserve the right to enter the room at any time to undertake essential maintenance or for inspection purposes.
Reservations normally commence at 16.00pm unless otherwise agreed and guests are required to vacate the apartment by 12.00pm on the day of departure. This allows the accommodation to be thoroughly cleaned and prepared for incoming guests.
- Smoking anywhere on the premises is not allowed.
- Damage to property – Please treat the facilities & accommodation with due care so that other guests may continue to enjoy them. In the event that you notice damage in your room please let us know immediately so that we can take the appropriate action. If there have been any breakages during your stay, we would be grateful if you could replace them or advise us before you leave. The room will be inspected at the end of the holiday & you may be charged for any loss or damage found.
- Please note that in the event that any keys issued are not returned at the end of your stay, then the cost of replacement will be charged to you.

- Any problem or complaint which guests may have concerning their holiday must be immediately reported directly to us/our representatives and we will endeavour to put matters right. Any complaints not reported to us/the management at the time and only reported after the client has returned from holiday will not be considered by Italian Cookery Courses.
