Skivolution has taken great care with all the arrangements that concern your holiday and the contents of our website. We ask you to read the following conditions carefully before completing a reservation form. If you have any queries regarding any of the following points please do not hesitate to contact us.
1. PAYMENT: Accompanying the completed reservation form must be an initial non refundable deposit of £200 per person per week made either by bank transfer or by cheque made payable to “Skivolution”. The total balance of the holiday is due no later than 12 weeks prior to departure. If payment is not received within this period the booking may be treated as cancelled and we reserve the right to retain the deposits which have been paid. If booking within 12 weeks of departure the full amount must be settled at the time of booking by either bank transfer or cheque. Please note that bank transfer is our preferred method of payment and details can be obtained from our UK office.
2. CANCELLATION BY THE CLIENT: The following cancellation will apply (less the £200 non refundable deposit – even if this as paid as part of the final balance payment) will apply once notice of cancellation has been received in writing. If the cancelled place is refilled by Skivolution at a later date the cancellation charges will still apply.
