Booking Conditions

The small print - essential for both you and us! First look at our covid policy:

Coronavirus and your holiday

'How will coronavirus affect our holiday this year?' The truth is we just don't know. But to make this a little more reassuring for you we have adopted the following booking proceedure:

A. Deposit

A deposit of £200 per person is due for all flight incluisve holidays

B. Final Payment

The final payment is is due 6 weeks prior to your travel date rather than 10 to 12 weeks.

C. Changes and Cancellations

if for any reason you want to change, amend or cancel any accommodation, transfer, car hire or extras then you can do with absolutely no penalty upto 6 weeks prior to your departure date. If you decide to cancel then the full amount of the holiday will be refunded less any flight costs up to 6 weeks (or 42 days) peior to your holiday starting. After this period our standard cancellation charges apply. Flight refund and ammendments are subject to the particular airlines' policy. Flights can be changed for a different date. There may be flight amendment fees charged by the particular airline.

Should government restrictions come in place and legally you can not travel from Britain or if you can not arrive into the destination country due to restrictions imposed in that destination country then your booking can be changed to a different date, amended to a different country / resort or cancelled with a full refund. If any changes or amendments are made then any difference in cost will have to be paid if greater or refunded if less than the original booking amount.


  1. Confirming a  holiday and Holiday Payment 
    We will confirm a holiday on your instructions. This can be by telephone, email or post. We will send you a booking confirmation and an invoice for any relavent deposit. Please note that when you confirm a holiday you become legally bound to pay any deposit due. The balance your holiday is due for payment no less than 6 weeks before the date your holiday starts. If the balance is not paid on time we may reserve the right to treat your booking as cancelled by you and apply the cancellation charges that are set out in Clause 3. For any bookings made on or after the balance due date, the full amount will be due at the time of booking. The person making the booking (the Party Leader) accepts responsibility for paying the total balance of the booking. You must be at least 18 years old to make a booking with us, though we will accept a booking made by a parent or guardian for anyone under 18, though if there is no one over 18 on the booking the youngest age we can accept is 16.
  2. Our Agreement
    A contract is made when we confirm your booking in writing by email, fax or post. Please take some time to carefully check all and any holiday confirmation documents that you receive from us. We cannot accept any liability if we are not notified of any inaccuracy in any document within 14 days of us sending them to you. English Law will apply to your contract and to any dispute, claim or other matter of any description which may arise between us.
  3. Holiday Cancellation by You (Please See Above Covid Policy)
    If you decide to cancel your holiday after we have issued your holiday confirmation, you must do so in writing by post, email or fax. Your notice of cancellation will only be effective when it is received in writing by us. Any deposit which includes any flight payment made at the time of booking and insurance premiums paid will not unfortunately be refundable. If you do cancel your holiday you will be liable for cancellation charges as outlined in the table below.
    Period before you leave within

    More than 84 days Loss of flight payment/Deposit

    42-29 days 70% or loss of deposit if greater
    28-15 days 90% or loss of deposit if greater
    14 days or fewer 100% cost of holiday
    You may be able to make a claim under your travel insurance policy if your cancellation falls within the conditions of the policy and we will provide you with a cancellation invoice. Any Claims in relation to cancellation must be made directly to the insurance company concerned. 

    Where any cancellation reduces the number of full paying party members below, the number on which the price, number of free places and/or any concessions agreed for your booking were based, we will recalculate these items and re-invoice you accordingly. If any member of your party is prevented from travelling, that person may transfer their place to someone else (introduced by you) at any time. We do not charge for any name changes for accommodation bookings. 
  4. Holiday Alteration by You
    Should you wish to make any changes to your booking, please advise us as soon as possible firstly by telephone and secondly in writing. Whilst we cannot guarantee a change, we will do our very best to help you. We do not charge any administration fee, though if there are any cancellation charges or fees from our suppliers we will let you know and if you agree to the changes then these fees will be passed on to you.
  5. Alterations and Cancellations by Us
    If for some reason we have to change your holiday we will only do this with your agreement. If you do not agree to a major change then we will refund any monies that you have paid to us and cancel your holiday. Should we have to cancel your holiday for what ever reason we will refund any monies that you have paid us. If for any reason we are unable to supply the accommodation chosen at time of booking we will look to find you a replacement accommodation of standard deemed to be equal or equivalent inthe same resort. We will not refund you for any accommodation change unless you are moved to an accommodation of standard that is lower in terms of offical clasification.
  6. Force Majeure
    Except where otherwise expressly stated in these booking conditions, we regret we cannot accept liability or pay any compensation where the performance, or prompt performance, of our contractual obligations to you is prevented or affected, or you otherwise suffer any damage, loss or expense of any nature as a result of 'force majeure'. In these Booking Conditions, 'force majeure' means any event or circumstances which we or the supplier of the service(s) in question could not, even with all due care, foresee or avoid. Such events or circumstances may include (whether actual or threatened) war, riot, civil strife, terrorist activity, industrial dispute, natural or nuclear disaster, adverse weather conditions, fire, pandemics/epidemics and all similar events outside our control.
  7. Special Requests
    We will try our hardest to deliver any special requests. However if the special requests do not form part of the holiday that we have confirmed to you we can not be held liable if we fail to deliver the special request (e.g. a birthday cake!)
  8. Complaints Procedure
    Should you have a complaint about any aspect of your holiday please contact us immediately as we want you to have a relaxed enjoyable holiday we will try our hardest to resolve the complaint immediately. Should we not be able to resolve the complaint, please then write to our office on your return from holiday. We will try and resolve the matter between us, however we can also offer an arbitration scheme
  9. Holiday Insurance
    It is a condition of booking a holiday with us that you take out insurance. The insurance Absolutely Snow offers is for United Kingdom residents only. Should you decide not to buy our insurance, you must provide us with the insurance company, telephone number, policy number and details of the emergency and medical repatriation telephone number relating to such a policy within 14 days of booking. If you purchase our insurance, cover will not be effective until we receive all applicable premiums in full. Please read your policy details carefully and take them with you on holiday. It is your responsibility to ensure that the insurance cover you purchase is suitable and adequate for your particular needs. We do not check alternative insurance policies.
  10. Pricing Policy
    The prices shown in our brochure and on our website are guaranteed and all taxes including if appropriate VAT are included within the final price. The price you see is the price you pay. There will be no booking fees or taxes added to any confirmation and we will not surcharge due to currency fluctuations
  11. Our Liability (Events Connected with your Holiday Package)
    1. We promise to make sure that the holiday you have booked with us is the holiday that we provide.
    2. We will not be responsible for any injury, illness, death, loss (for example, loss of enjoyment), damage, expense, cost or other sum or claim of any description whatsoever which results from any of the following: the act(s) and/or omission(s) of the person(s) affected or any member(s) of their party; or the act(s) and/or omission(s) of a third party not connected with the provision of your holiday and which were unforeseeable or unavoidable or 'force majeure', as defined in Clause 6.
    3. We cannot accept responsibility for any services which do not form part of our contract. This includes, for example, any additional services or facilities which your hotel or any other supplier agrees to provide for you where the services or facilities are not advertised in our brochure and we have not agreed to arrange them and any excursion you purchase in resort. In addition, regardless of any wording used by us on our website, in any of our brochures or elsewhere, we only promise to use reasonable skill and care as set out above and we do not have any greater or different liability to you.
    4. The promises we make to you about the services we have agreed to provide or arrange as part of our contract, and the laws and regulations of the country in which your claim or complaint occurred, will be used as the basis for deciding whether the services in question had been properly provided. If the particular services which gave rise to the claim or complaint complied with local laws and regulations applicable to those services at the time, the services will be treated as having been properly provided. This will be the case even if the services did not comply with the laws and regulations of the U.K. which would have applied had those services been provided in the U.K. The exception to this is where the claim or complaint concerns the absence of a safety feature, which might lead a reasonable holiday maker to refuse to take the holiday in question.
    5. Where any claim, or part of a claim (including those involving death or personal injury), concerns, or is based on, any travel arrangements (including the process of getting on and/or off the transport concerned) provided by any air, sea, rail or road carrier or any stay in a hotel, the maximum amount of compensation we will have to pay you will be limited. The most we will have to pay you for that claim or that part of a claim if we are found liable to you on any basis, is the most the carrier or hotelier concerned would have to pay under the International Convention or Regulation, which applies to the travel arrangements or hotel stay in question (for example, the Warsaw Convention as amended or unamended and the Montreal Convention for international travel by air and/or for airlines with an operating licence granted by an EU country, the EC Regulation on Air Carrier Liability No 889/2002 for national and international travel by air, the Athens Convention for international travel by sea or the Convention concerning International Carriage by Rail (COTIF)). Where a carrier or hotelier would not be obliged to make any payment to you under the applicable International Convention or Regulation, in respect of a claim or part of a claim, we, similarly, are not obliged to make a payment to you for that claim, or part of the claim. When making any payment, we are entitled to deduct any money which you have received, or are entitled to receive from the transport provider or hotelier, for the complaint or claim in question. Copies of the applicable International Conventions and Regulations are available from us on request.
    6. We cannot accept any liability for any damage, loss, expense or other sum(s) of any description (a) which, on the basis of the information given to us by you concerning your booking prior to our accepting it, we could not have foreseen you would suffer or incur if we breached our contract with you or (b) which did not result from any breach of contract or other fault by ourselves or our employees or, where we are responsible for them, our suppliers or (c) which relate to any business (including loss of self employed earnings)
    7. You must provide ourselves and our insurers with all assistance we may reasonably require. You must also tell us and the supplier concerned about your claim or complaint as set out in Clause 12, above. If asked to do so, you must transfer to us, or our insurers, any rights you have against the supplier or whoever else is responsible for your claim or complaint (if the person concerned is under 18, their parent or guardian must do so). You must also agree to cooperate fully with us and our insurers if we, or our insurers, want to enforce any rights which are transferred.
  12. Passengers with Health Considerations/Disabilities
    Our holidays may not be suitable for people with certain disabilities or medical conditions. If you have a disability, some of our villas do not offer ground/lower floor accommodation or lifts/easy access.
  13. Your Behaviour while on holiday with us
    When you book with us, you accept responsibility for any damage or loss caused by you. Full payment for any such damage or loss (reasonably estimated if not precisely known) must be paid direct at the time to the accommodation owner or manager or other supplier. If the actual cost of the loss or the damage exceeds the amount paid where estimated, you must pay the difference once known. If the actual cost is less than the amount paid, the difference will be refunded. You will be responsible for meeting any claims subsequently made against us and all costs incurred by us (including our own and the other party's full legal costs) as a result of your actions. In the event of any customer behaving in such a way as is likely, (in our reasonable opinion or the reasonable opinion of any person in authority) to cause offence, danger, damage, discomfort or distress to others, we reserve the right to terminate that person's holiday arrangements. In this situation, we will not be liable to complete your holiday arrangements (including return travel arrangements) and will not pay you, nor be liable for, any refund, compensation, or any other costs you have to pay. We cannot accept liability for the behaviour of others in your accommodation, or if facilities are removed as a result of their action.
  14. Financial Protection / ATOL


Seawake Ltd is a company committed to customer satisfaction and consumer financial protection. We are holders of the Civil Aviation Authority (CAA) Air Travel Organisers License (ATOL 11090). All flight inclusive holidays are fully financially protected under the ATOL scheme

15. Data Protection

In order to process your booking and to ensure that your travel arrangements run smoothly and meet your requirements we need to use the information you provide (such as name, address, any special needs/dietary requirements etc.). We take full responsibility for ensuring that proper security measures are in place to protect your information. We must pass the information on to the relevant suppliers of your travel arrangements such as airlines, hotels, transport companies etc. The information may also be provided to public authorities such as customs/immigration if required by them, or as required by law. Additionally, where your holiday is outside the European Economic Area (EEA), controls on data protection in your destination may not be as strong as the legal requirements in this country. We will not, however pass any information on to any person not responsible for part of your travel arrangements. This applies to any sensitive information that you give to us such as details of any disabilities, or dietary/religious requirements. (If we cannot pass this information to the relevant suppliers, whether in the EEA or not, we cannot provide your booking. In making this booking, you consent to this information being passed on to the relevant persons).

16. Our Brochure & Website descriptions

We make every effort to ensure that our holiday information is accurate at the time of going to press. However circumstances beyond our control (such as those described in section 6) may make it necessary to change some arrangements. We cannot accept liability for cancellation or curtailment in these instances. Unless otherwise stated our prices are per villa on a daily or a weekly rate. Regrettably standards of infrastructure, hygiene, safety, fire precautions etc. vary from villa to villa. In more remote areas electricity/water supplies may be liable to disruption for short periods. We also recognise the inconvenience caused by building works taking place on or near your accommodation in fast expanding resorts, while we have no control over such developments, if we find out about them and believe they will seriously affect your enjoyment we will tell you and give you the opportunity to transfer to another villa or cancel without any charges.

17. Passports and Visas

It is your responsibility to ensure that you meet all passport and visa requirements for your journey overseas as well as all costs in securing the required documentation. We are unable to make any refunds to clients unable to travel through failure to obtain a passport or visa.
