Alpine & Ocean Elements Summer Holiday
It is important to us that you are completely confident in booking your ski holiday. Remember that, if we have to cancel your holiday due to Covid, all our holidays are fully protected by our ABTA/ATOL bonding, so you will never be stranded and you will always get your money back.
We have also created a new flexible booking policy for all new bookings made after Sept 1st, 2020 with more relaxed cancellation terms should you wish to cancel or amend your dates, for any reason.
If you decide to cancel or amend your dates
You, or a member of your party, may cancel your booking at any time. For winter and summer holidays booked after Sept 1st, 2020, we have 'relaxed' our cancellation terms.
|Time we receive your notice to cancel
|Cancellation charge||Amendment fee|
|More than 42 days||Loss of deposit||No amendment fee |
|42-28 days||50% of total cost of holiday||Our standard 84 day amendment fees apply|
|27-15 days||75% of total cost of holiday||Our standard 84 day amendment fees apply|
|14 days or fewer||100% of total cost of holiday||Our standard 84 day amendment fees apply|
 there will be no amendment fee to change dates for self travel holidays or holidays with our charter flights. If you are flying scheduled airlines (like Easyjet) an amendment fee may apply
If we have to cancel due to Covid-19
We are a fully bonded Operator and all your monies are 100% protected by ABTA/ATOL. If your holiday is later suspended by us due to Covid you will always get a full refund or a chance to change your dates, (see qualifying reasons below).
