Sorry if you cancel in this period there is no refund available, we may be able to re-let the dates for you so always call and we will see what we can do to help.

In this example if you cancel Thursday or Friday there is no refund available.

No there is no additional charge to you the guest, we are paying for the cost of this cover so that you can book with confidence.

MY ARRIVAL DATE IS AFTER 1st AUGUST – IS MY BOOKING COVERED?

*Master Cancel only applies to new bookings placed from 6th June 2020 for arrivals after 1st August 2020, this is a condition of the Master Cancel programme. Additionally if you have a booking re-arranged or pay with a voucher issued due to a Covid 19 affected booking that booking will not qualify for Master Cancel because your original booking date was prior to us being accepted into the Master Cancel scheme.

If you placed your booking before 6th June 2020 &/or used a covid-19 related voucher for your booking it is not eligible for Master Cancel and our old cancellation terms apply – see your original booking confirmation. If in doubt just drop us an Email.

FAQ’s

Do I have to give a reason for cancelling?

Yes but the only circumstances where you would not be refunded are those listed below in ‘Is there any scenario not covered by Master Cancel’   You can cancel within 2-60 days of your arrival date.  There are no forms to complete and we do not need any evidence such as doctor’s notes.  We do require written notice of cancellation by email from you, it must be from the email address used to make the booking, sent to holidays@unique-retreats.co.uk and acknowledged by us by return email.

What if I want to cancel less than 2 days before arrival?

In this case our standard cancellation policy applies.  We will make the dates available to be re-booked and if they do re-book, we will provide a refund of your holiday accommodation cost equal to the rental rate of the new booking – so be aware that your refund could be less than the rate you paid if only a portion of your holiday duration was re-booked or the dates were discounted to attract a last minute booking, and the refund will be less the booking fee and £75 cancellation fee.  If the dates are not re-booked we are unable to provide a refund.

How do I cancel my booking?

We require written notice of cancellation by email from you and it must be from the email address used to make the booking and sent to holidays@unique-retreats.co.uk.   We will ask for a reason but you do not have to provide any evidence such as a doctors note, just clearly tell us you wish to cancel and we will take it from there.

I already have a booking with you, am I covered by Master Cancel?

If your booking was placed prior to  6th June 2020 it is not covered by Master Cancel and our standard cancellation policy applies.

I have a booking that was deferred from this year to a future date, is it covered by Master Cancel?

No, unfortunately not, because the booking was placed prior to the insurance being made available to us on 6 June 2020.

No, Master Cancel is applied to all bookings placed from 6 June 2020 onwards for holidays commencing anytime on or after 1 August 2020.
