The cancellation fee can subsequently be used as a deposit for a future holiday booked directly with West Wales Cottages or West Wales Caravans and booked within 6 months from the date of cancellation.
Cancellation by guests within 6 weeks of a holiday: If cancellation occurs for any reason within 6 weeks of the start of the holiday, the hirer should advise West Wales Caravans immediately by telephone or e-mail followed by a confirmatory letter.

If West Wales Caravans are unable to re-let, then the owners of the cottage shall be entitled to retain all payments already made. We advise hirers to arrange cancellation and holiday insurance with the insurer of their choice to cover any eventuality.
Non payment of balance: In the event of balance of rental payments not being made by the due date, and when the hirer makes no request for additional payment time, the holiday dates will be re-advertised and no refund will be given.
