Terms And Conditions
1. Booking & Paying For Your Arrangements
A booking is made with us when you pay us a deposit (or full payment by the balance due date notified to you or if you are otherwise booking within 10 weeks of departure) and we issue you with a booking confirmation either directly from ourselves or on behalf of the Supplier/Principal, where we are acting in an agency capacity (please see Section D for further details).
A binding contract between you and the Supplier/Principal (where we are acting as an agent) or between you and us comes into existence when we despatch the booking confirmation to the first named person on the booking.
Upon receipt, if you believe that any details on your booking confirmation or any other document are wrong you must advise us immediately as changes cannot be made later and it may harm your rights if we are not notified of any inaccuracies in any document within ten days of our sending it out.
We endeavour to ensure that all the information and prices both on our website and in any advertising material that we publish are accurate, however, occasionally changes and errors occur and we reserve the right to correct prices and other details in such circumstances. You must check the current price and all other details relating to the travel arrangements that you wish to book before you make your booking.
We reserve the right to amend advertised prices at any time. We also reserve the right to correct errors in both advertised and confirmed prices. Special note: changes and errors sometimes occur. You must check the price of your chosen travel arrangements at the time of booking.
Where you have booked a Package, additional terms and conditions apply, please see clause 15 for further information.
Adequate travel insurance is a condition of your contract with us or the Supplier/Principal. You must be satisfied that your insurance fully covers all your personal requirements including pre-existing medical conditions, cancellation charges, medical expenses and repatriation in the event of accident or illness. If you choose to travel without adequate insurance cover, neither we nor the Supplier/Principal will not be liable for any losses howsoever arising, in respect of which insurance cover would otherwise have been available.
5. Events Beyond Our Control
Except where otherwise expressly stated in these Booking Conditions we (or the Supplier/Principal, where we are acting as an agent) will not be liable or pay you compensation if our contractual obligations to you are affected by Events Beyond Our Control. For the purpose of these Booking Conditions, this means any event beyond our, the Supplier/Principal or our/their supplier’s control, the consequences of which could not have been avoided even if all reasonable measures had been taken. Examples include warfare and acts of terrorism (and threat thereof), civil strife, significant risks to human health such as the outbreak of serious disease at the travel destination or natural disasters such as floods, earthquakes or weather conditions which make it impossible to travel safely to the travel destination or remain at the travel destination, the act of any government or other national or local authority including any port or river authorities, industrial dispute, labour strikes, lock closure, natural or nuclear disaster, fire, chemical or biological disaster, unavoidable technical problems with transport and all similar events our or the supplier(s) concerned’s control.
Brexit Implications: please note that certain travel arrangements may be affected as a result of the United Kingdom’s decision to leave the European Union. This could include an unavailability of certain flight routes, access to certain ports and airports etc. Please rest assured that this is something we will continue to monitor and will advise our customers as soon as possible if we become aware of any confirmed bookings that will be affected. However, since this is something which is completely unprecedented and outside our or the Supplier/Principal’s control, any such changes would be treated as Events Beyond Our Control, and whilst we will endeavour to provide suitable alternative arrangements or refunds where possible, we or the Supplier/Principal will not be liable to pay you any compensation.
6. Special Requests
Any special requests must be advised to us at the time of booking e.g. diet, room location, a particular facility at a hotel etc. You should then confirm your requests in writing. Whilst every effort will be made by us (or the Supplier/Principal, where we are acting as an agent) to try and arrange your reasonable special requests, we cannot guarantee that they will be fulfilled. The fact that a special request has been noted on your confirmation invoice or any other documentation or that it has been passed on to the supplier is not confirmation that the request will be met. Failure to meet any special request will not be a breach of contract on our part unless the request has been specifically confirmed by us. We do not accept bookings that are conditional upon any special request being met.
The accommodation you book will typically be available from 4pm on the agreed arrival date, until 10am on the agreed departure date, the precise times of availability will be specified on your booking. We (or the Supplier/Principal where we are acting as an agent) may, at our/their discretion, allow earlier access or late departure upon request but we cannot guarantee this.
All properties are sold for up to a maximum number of people that is listed in the details of each property. Exceeding the maximum number is not permitted and any additional guests will be required to leave with immediate effect and we (or the Supplier/Principal where we are acting agent) have the right to terminate your booking immediately. In the event of such termination our liability (or the Supplier/Principal’s where we act as agent) to you and/or your party will cease and you and/or your party will be required to leave your accommodation or other arrangements immediately. Neither we nor the Supplier/Principal will have any further obligations to you and/or your party. No refunds for lost accommodation or any other arrangements will be made and we will not pay any expenses or costs incurred as a result of termination.
Please note: pets are not permitted and smoking is strictly prohibited in all areas of the accommodation you book with us.
8. Security Deposits (applicable only to catered and self-catered chalets and villa bookings, not applicable to hotel bookings):
All the accommodation that we offer requires a refundable Security Deposit that is payable by you as a deposit towards any damage that may be caused to the accommodation (or its facilities) due to the conduct of you, any member or your party or any other person authorised to enter the property by you / a member of your party.
You acknowledge and agree that you are required to provide the Security Deposit by way of providing credit card details as part of the check-in process. An amount of €400 will be held on your credit card for the duration of your stay and for up to 7 days after your departure from the accommodation.
Deductions for unacceptable state
A final clean is included in the price of your Booking. However, if you leave the accommodation in an unreasonable state, which requires additional cleaning services over and above what is generally required at the conclusion of a stay at the accommodation, we (or the Supplier/Principal, where we are acting as an agent) reserve the right to make a deduction from the Security Deposit equal to the additional cleaning costs we or the Supplier/Principal incur.
Deductions for damage
In the event that no loss, damage or unreasonable cleanliness has deemed to have taken place, we aim to refund your Security Deposit within 7-14 days after your departure from the accommodation.
If you or any member of your party cause damage to the property or anything within the property, we reserve the right to make a deduction from the Security Deposit equal to the cleaning costs that we incur.
You are required to notify us of any damage already present upon arrival within 24 hours and we recommend taking photographs of any existing damage and communicating this to the Resort Team. Our Resort Team will undertake a thorough check of the Property after your departure and prior to our next guests checking-in. We will advise you as soon as possible of any damage discovered and we will provide photographs where possible.
We understand that accidents happen and neither we nor a Supplier/Principal will make any claims for minor damage or breakages not exceeding 40€. We will also consider and disclaim possible maintenance, cumulative wear and tear and any other pre-existing factors that may have contributed to the damage. We and the Supplier/Principals will always be reasonable in determining whether to make a deduction to the Security Deposit and we/they will not make a deduction prior to giving you reasonable time to respond, in the event of a dispute we will retain your card details until a resolution is reached.
If we or a Supplier/Principal determine it necessary to make a deduction to the Security Deposit, then we will only instruct the card payment services provider to charge your credit card to the amount required to replace or rectify the damage (on a like-for-like basis). We will not instruct our card payment services provider to charge your credit card for an amount which exceeds the Security Deposit. We will never add a mark-up to this charge.
Release of Security Deposit
We will procure that our card payment service provider destroys your credit card details taken for the purposes of the Security Deposit within seven (7) days following your departure date, subject always to our right to instruct our card payment service provider to make a charge to your credit card or to not destroy your credit card details pending resolution of a dispute between us and you pursuant to these Booking Conditions.
Please note: The Security Deposit does not limit your financial liability against loss of rental income suffered by us or the property owner. Your liability for losses applies even if the value of the loss exceeds the Security Deposit (in which case you will be required to pay the full amount in exceed of the Security Deposit).
9. Disabilities and Medical Problems
We are not a specialist disabled holiday company but we will do our utmost to cater for any special requirements you may have. If you or any member of your party has any medical problem or disability which may affect your trip, please provide us (or the Supplier/Principal where we are acting as agent) with full details before your booking is confirmed so that we can try to advise you as to the suitability of your chosen travel arrangements. We or the Supplier/Principal may require you to produce a doctor’s certificate certifying that you are fit to participate in your chosen tour.
Acting reasonably, if we are unable to properly accommodate the needs of the person(s) concerned, we will not confirm your booking or if you did not give us full details at the time of booking, we will cancel it and impose applicable cancellation charges when we become aware of these details.
10. Visa, Passport and Health Requirements
It is your responsibility to check and fulfil the passport, visa, health and immigration requirements applicable to your itinerary. We can only provide general information about this. You must check requirements for your own specific circumstances with the relevant Embassies and/or Consulates and your own doctor as applicable. Requirements do change and you must check the up to date position in good time before departure.
We do not accept any responsibility if you cannot travel, or incur any other loss because you have not complied with any passport, visa, immigration requirements or health formalities. You agree to reimburse us in relation to any fines or other losses which we incur as a result of your failure to comply with any passport, visa, immigration requirements or health formalities.
11. Your Behaviour
All our customers are expected to conduct themselves in an orderly and acceptable manner and not to disrupt the enjoyment of others. If in our opinion, the opinion of the Supplier/Principal (where we are acting as an agent) or in the opinion of any hotel manager, property owner, or any other person in authority, your behaviour or that of any member of your party is causing or is likely to cause distress, danger or annoyance to any other customers or any third party, or damage to property, or to cause a delay or diversion to transportation, we / the Supplier/Principal reserve the right to terminate your booking immediately. Excessive noise in the property after 10pm and before 7am will be considered as anti-social behaviour and we or the Supplier/Principal reserve the right to terminate your booking immediately.
In the event of such termination our liability (or the Supplier/Principal’s where we act as agent) to you and/or your party will cease and you and/or your party will be required to leave your accommodation or other arrangements immediately. Neither we nor the Supplier/Principal will have any further obligations to you and/or your party. No refunds for lost accommodation or any other arrangements will be made and we will not pay any expenses or costs incurred as a result of termination. You and/or your party may also be required to pay for loss and/or damage caused by your actions and we will hold you and each member of your party jointly and individually liable for any damage or losses caused by you or any member of your party. Full payment for any such damage or losses must be paid directly to the hotel manager or other supplier prior to departure. If you fail to make payment, you will be responsible for meeting any claims (including legal costs) subsequently made against us as a result of your actions together with all costs we incur in pursuing any claim against you. Neither we nor the Supplier/Principal can be held responsible for the actions or behaviour of other guests or individuals who have no connection with your booking arrangements or with us.
12. Law and Jurisdiction
These Booking Conditions are governed by English law and we both agree that the courts of England and Wales have exclusive jurisdiction over any dispute, claim or other matter which may arise between us (unless you live in Scotland or Northern Ireland, in which case you can bring proceedings in your local court under Scottish or Northern Irish law, as applicable).
13. Conditions of Suppliers
Many of the services which make up your holiday are provided by independent suppliers. Those suppliers provide these services in accordance with their own terms and conditions which will form part of your contract with us. Some of these terms and conditions may limit or exclude the supplier’s liability to you, usually in accordance with applicable International Conventions. Copies of the relevant parts of these terms and conditions are available on request from us or the supplier concerned.
Excursions or other tours that you may choose to book or pay for whilst you are on the trip are not part of your contracted arrangements with us. For any excursion or other tour that you book, your contract will be with the operator of the excursion or tour and not with us. Although we may recommend certain suppliers to you (e.g. ski hire, childcare), we are not responsible for the provision of the excursion or tour or for anything that happens during the course of its provision by the operator.
SECTION B: PACKAGE BOOKINGS
This section only applies to Packages booked with us, where we are acting as the Package Organiser (please see clause 15 for further details of when this will be the case). Please read this section in conjunction with Section A of these Booking Conditions.
15. Definition of a Package
Where your booking is for a Package holiday that we have organised, as defined below, we will act as a “Package Organiser” and you will receive the rights and benefits under the Package Travel and Linked Travel Arrangements Regulations 2018 (“PTRs”), as outlined in this Section B of our Booking Terms and Conditions.
A “Package” exists if you book a combination of at least two different types of the following separate travel services, for the purpose of the same trip or holiday:
provided that those travel services are purchased together from a single visit to our website and selected by you before you agree to pay; or are advertised, sold or charged at an inclusive or total price; or advertised or sold under the term “package” or a similar term.
IMPORTANT NOTE : where you have made a booking which consists of not more than one type of travel service as listed at (a) – (c) above, combined with one or more tourist services as listed at (d) above, this will not create a Package where the tourist services:
These bookings will be treated as “Single Service” bookings and will not be afforded the benefit of the rights under the PTRs. Please see Section C of these Booking Terms and Conditions for the terms applicable to such arrangements.
We occasionally sell Packages that are not organised by ourselves but by a third party Supplier/Principal, which we sell as an agent on the Supplier/Principal’s behalf. We will advise you where this is the case prior to you placing your booking. For such sales, this Section B will not apply, please refer to Section D instead.
16. Pricing of Packages
We reserve the right to amend the price of unsold holidays at any time and correct errors in the prices of confirmed holidays. We also reserve the right to increase the price of confirmed holidays solely to allow for increases which are a direct consequence of changes in:
Such variations could include but are not limited to airline cost changes which are part of our contracts with airlines (and their agents), cruise ship operators and any other transport providers.
You will be charged for the amount of any increase in accordance with this clause. However, if this means that you have to pay an increase of more than 8% of the price of your confirmed holiday (excluding any insurance premiums, amendment charges and/or additional services or travel arrangements), you will have the option of accepting a change to another holiday if we are able to offer one (if this is of lower quality you will be refunded the difference in price), or cancelling and receiving a full refund of all monies paid to us, except for any amendment charges and/or additional services or travel arrangements. Should you decide to cancel for this reason, you must exercise your right to do so within 7 days from the issue date printed on your final invoice. We will consider an appropriate refund of insurance premiums paid if you can show that you are unable to transfer or reuse your policy.
Should the price of your holiday go down due to the changes mentioned above, then any refund due will be paid to you less an administrative fee of £10. However, please note that travel arrangements are not always purchased in local currency and some apparent changes have no impact on the price of your travel due to contractual and other protection in place.
There will be no change made to the price of your confirmed Package holiday within 20 days of your departure nor will refunds be paid during this period.
17. Cutting your Package Holiday short
If you are forced to return home early, we cannot refund the cost of any travel arrangements you have not used. If you cut short your holiday and return home early in circumstances where you have no reasonable cause for complaint about the standard of accommodation and services provided, we will not offer you any refund for that part of your holiday not completed, or be liable for any associated costs you may incur. Depending on the circumstances, your travel insurance may offer cover for curtailment and we suggest that any claim is made directly with them.
18. If You Change Your Booking & Transfers of Bookings
If you wish to change any part of your booking after our confirmation invoice has been issued, you must inform us in writing as soon as possible. This should be done by the first named person on the booking. Whilst we will do our best to assist, we cannot guarantee that we will be able to meet your requested change. Where we can meet a request, all changes will be subject to payment of an administration fee of £50 per person per change, as well as any costs and charges incurred by us and/or incurred or imposed by any of our suppliers in making this change. You should be aware that these costs could increase the closer to the departure date that changes are made and you should contact us as soon as possible. Where we are unable to assist you and you do not wish to proceed with the original booking we will treat this as a cancellation by you. A cancellation fee may be payable in accordance with clause 19.
Transfer of Booking:
If you or any member of your party is prevented from travelling, that person(s) may transfer their place to someone else, subject to the following conditions:
You and the transferee remain jointly and severally liable for payment of all sums. If you are unable to find a replacement, cancellation charges as set out in clause 19 will apply in order to cover our estimated costs. Otherwise, no refunds will be given for passengers not travelling or for unused services.
Important Note: Certain arrangements may not be amended or transferred after they have been confirmed (for example, scheduled airlines normally regard name changes as a cancellation and rebooking) and any alteration could incur a cancellation charge of up to 100% of that part of the arrangements.
19. If You Cancel Your Booking Before Departure
If you or any other member of your party decides to cancel your confirmed booking you must notify us in writing. Your notice of cancellation will only take effect when it is received in writing by us at our offices and will be effective from the date on which we receive it.
Should one or more member of a party cancel, it may increase the per person holiday price of those still travelling and you will be liable to pay this increase.
Since we incur costs in cancelling your arrangements, you will have to pay the cancellation charges as follows:
Period before departure in which you notify us
More than 70 days
From 69 to 43 days
35% of holiday cost
From 42 to 29 days
50% of holiday cost
From 28 to 14 days
75% of holiday cost
Less than 14 days
100% of holiday cost
Please note that amendment charges are not refundable in any circumstances.
Important Note: Certain arrangements may not be amended after they have been confirmed and any alteration or cancellation could incur a cancellation charge of up to 100% of that part of the arrangements in addition to the charge above.
If the reason for your cancellation is covered under the terms of your insurance policy, you may be able to reclaim these charges.
Where possible, we will deduct the cancellation charge(s) from any monies you have already paid to us.
Cancellation by You due to Unavoidable & Extraordinary
You have the right to cancel your confirmed holiday before departure without paying a cancellation charge in the event of “unavoidable and extraordinary circumstances” occurring at your holiday destination or its immediate vicinity and significantly affecting the performance of the holiday or significantly affecting the transport arrangements to the destination. In these circumstances, we shall provide you with a full refund of the monies you have paid but we will not be liable to pay you any additional compensation. Please note that your right to cancel in these circumstances will only apply where the Foreign and Commonwealth Office advises against travel to your destination or its immediate vicinity. For the purposes of this clause, “unavoidable and extraordinary circumstances” means warfare, acts of terrorism, significant risks to human health such as the outbreak of serious disease at the travel destination or natural disasters such as floods, earthquakes or weather conditions which make it impossible to travel safely to the travel destination.
This clause 19 outlines the rights you have if you wish to cancel your Package booking. Please note that there is no automatic statutory right of cancellation under the Consumer Contracts (Information, Cancellation and Additional Charges) Regulations 2013 (Directive 2011/83/EU).
20. If We Change or Cancel your Package Holiday
As we plan your holiday arrangements many months in advance we may occasionally have to make changes or cancel your booking and we reserve the right to do so at any time.
Changes: If we make a minor change to your holiday, we will make reasonable efforts to inform you or your travel agent as soon as reasonably possible if there is time before your departure but we will have no liability to you. Examples of minor changes include a change of accommodation to another of the same or higher standard and changes of carriers.
Occasionally we may have to make a significant change to your confirmed arrangements. Examples of “significant changes” include the following, when made before departure:
Cancellation: We will not cancel your Package holiday less than 70 days before your departure date, except for reasons of Events Beyond Our Control or failure by you to pay the final balance. We may cancel your holiday before this date if, e.g., the minimum number of clients required for a particular travel arrangement is not reached.
If we have to make a significant change or cancel, we will tell you as soon as possible and if there is time to do so before departure, we will offer you the choice of:
You must notify us of your choice within 7 days of our offer. If we do not hear from you within 7 days, we will contact you again to request notification of your choice. If you fail to respond again, we will assume that you have chosen to accept the change or alternative booking arrangements.
In addition to a full refund of all monies paid by you, we will pay you compensation as detailed below, in the following circumstances:
The compensation that we offer does not exclude you from claiming more if you are entitled to do so.

Amount you will receive from us*

If we become unable to provide a significant proportion of the arrangements that you have booked with us after you have departed, we will, if possible, make alternative arrangements for you at no extra charge and where those alternative arrangements are of a lower standard, provide you with an appropriate price reduction.
We make every effort to ensure that your Package holiday arrangements run smoothly so it important to us that we are given the opportunity to resolve any issues that you may encounter during your holiday, this means addressing any issues immediately and carefully so they do not affect the rest of your trip. If you do have a problem during your holiday, please inform the relevant supplier (e.g. your hotelier) immediately who will endeavour to put things right. If your complaint is not resolved locally, please contact us using the emergency contact numbers provided within your travel documents so that the problem can be resolved as quickly.
If the problem cannot be resolved and you wish to complain further, you must send formal written notice of your complaint to us at: email@example.com, ideally within 28 days of the end of your stay, giving your booking reference and all other relevant information. Please keep your letter concise and to the point. This will assist us to quickly identify your concerns and speed up our response to you. Failure to follow the procedure set out in this clause may affect ours and the applicable supplier’s ability to investigate your complaint, and will affect your rights under this contract.
You can access the European Commission Online Dispute Resolution (ODR) platform at http://ec.europa.eu/consumers/odr/ . This ODR platform is a means of registering your complaint with us; it will not determine how your complaint should be resolved.

In particular, we will provide you with appropriate information on health services, local authorities and consular assistance, and with distance communications and finding alternative travel arrangements. Where you require assistance that is not owing to any failure by us, our employees or sub-contractors, we will not be liable for the costs of any alternative travel arrangements or other such assistance you require.

You should be aware that these costs could increase the closer to the departure date that changes are made and you should contact us as soon as possible. Where we are unable to assist you and you do not wish to proceed with the original booking we will treat this as a cancellation by you.
Note: Certain single service arrangements may not be changeable after confirmation and any alteration may result in a cancellation charge of 100%.
If you, or any member of your party, decides to cancel your booking after it has been confirmed, the first named person on the booking must email us at firstname.lastname@example.org.

Where possible, we will deduct the cancellation charge(s) from any monies you have already paid to us.
27. If We Change or Cancel Your Single Service Booking
We may in certain circumstances be required to cancel your booking in which case a full refund of all monies paid will be made to you. We regret we cannot meet any expenses or losses that you may incur as a result of change or cancellation. Very rarely, we may be forced by Events Beyond Our Control (see clause 5) to change or cancel your travel service(s) after departure. If this situation does occur, we regret we will be unable to make any refunds, pay you compensation or meet any costs or expenses you incur as a result.

Le Cygne is offered on a serviced basis with access to all the perks of a catered chalet without the catering. This includes a daily clean, all day driver service, and access to the luxury touches such as champagne on arrival and a welcome hamper.
