9. Cancellation policy
9.1 Once the Booking Confirmation has been provided by Celebration Holiday Homes, the Lead Guest is responsible for paying the Balance when it falls due.
9.2 The Lead Guest may cancel the booking at any time. Celebration Holiday Homes (As per schedule 15) recommends that all Guests should ensure they take out suitable travel insurance to cover themselves against any cancellation that they may have to make.
Celebration Holiday Home does have a cancellation policy, however if a cancellation is made, the date when the cancellation is made will affect the level of reimbursement. Celebration Holiday Homes only lets large properties that all sleep in excess of 12 people, properties such as this are normally booked significantly in advance of the booked Rental Period. Most bookings are not flexible on dates and are made 6 to 18 months prior to the Rental Period and very few bookings are made at short notice.
Celebration Holiday Homes have set out a cancellation policy (see schedule 9.6 below) that reflects the value of making an early booking and holding key dates alongside the principle that the less time that is available to Celebration Holiday Homes to re-let the property the less value returning those dates will have.
9.3 Cancellation of a booking must be made in writing and sent to firstname.lastname@example.org .
9.4 Once the cancellation has been confirmed by Celebration Holiday Homes, the booking of the Property will be deemed cancelled.
9.5 Upon confirmation of the cancellation of a booking, Celebration Holiday Homes will withhold the cancellation fee and any cancellation retention as per the cancellation policy clause 9.6 below. Celebration Holiday Homes will immediately try the re-let the rental period. If the property is successfully re-let at the full rate, then the full cancellation retention will be returned to the Lead Guest. Where the property is re-let at a discounted rate Celebration Holiday homes will return any retention amount that would have resulted in an excess in the total amount recovered for the property over and above the original booking rate. Any return of the cancellation retention will only be made after the rental period following a successful re-letting.
9.6 The cancellation policy has three parts:
Part 1: Any cancellation made by the Lead Guest will incur a fixed cancellation charge amounting to 5% of the full Booking rate, this is for administering the cancellation and will be charged regardless of when the cancellation is made.
Part 2: Where a Booking Confirmation has been made in excess of 6 months from the Rental Date and the cancellation is also made in excess of 6 months of the Rental date then there will be no cancellation retention charge. However if a cancellation is made within 6 months of the Rental Date, then a cancellation retention will be made that will increase the closer the cancellation is made to the Rental Date reflecting the reduced value of the returned dates. This is demonstrated in the table below:
|Months prior to the Rental Date||Late Cancellation Retention||Cancellation Charge||Total amount of Booking Rate retained|
|Over 6 months||0%||5%||5%|
|5 – 6 Months||5%||5%||10%|
|4 – 5 Months||15%||5%||20%|
|3 – 4 Months||25%||5%||30%|
|2 – 3 Months||35%||5%||40%|
|1 – 2 Months||50%||5%||55%|
|Under 1 Month||70%||5%||75%|
Part 3: Where a Booking Confirmation is made within 6 months of the Rental Date the Lead Guest has not had the same value of securing a specific date in advance and any retention cancellation charge is therefore reduced. In this situation there will be no cancellation retention charged for any cancellation made within a month of the Booking Confirmation date however any cancellation retention made after this point will increase the later it is from the Booking Confirmation date. This is demonstrated in the table below:
|Months from the Booking Date||Late Cancellation Charge||Cancellation Charge||Total amount of Booking Rate retained|
|Under 1 Month||0%||5%||5%|
|1 – 3 Months||5%||5%||10%|
|4 – 5 Months||15%||5%||20%|
|5 – 6 Months||25%||5%||30%|
9.7 The Owner has the right to cancel the booking at any time. If the owner cancels the booking for any reason, Celebration Holiday Homes will arrange a full refund to the Lead Guest of all amounts paid.
9.8 If the Property is ‘Unavailable to Let’ due to local or national restrictions that affect the Property (for example a national or local pandemic) for the agreed Rental Period then the Lead Guest will be have two options:
9.8.1 The Lead Guest will be permitted to move their booking to any other available date within 18 months of the Rental Date. In this circumstance there will be no charge to move dates and the Booking Rate will be maintained for any comparable booking in the same seasonal rate band.
9.8.2 If there is are no suitable alternative dates then a full refund of all amounts paid will be made by Celebration Holiday Homes.
9.9 Where the Property is available to let but a number of the Guests are unable to attend for any reasons including local or national restrictions the property is NOT deemed Unavailable to Let. Any cancellation of the booking due to this reason would therefore be a cancellation by the Lead Guest and would be subject to the Cancellation Policy as noted in schedule 9.6.
9.9.1 If a particular risk or reason was known and specific exclusions were agreed with the owner and/or Celebration Holiday Homes then these exclusions which should be confirmed by email would supercede clause 9.9.
9.9.2 The Owner at his discretion can amend the cancellation Policy clause as explained in clause 9.6 in the favour of the Lead Guest.
9.10 Celebration Holiday Homes and the Owner reserves the right to terminate the Contract, or refuse to hand over the Property, at any time where there are reasonable grounds to suspect that:
9.10.1 Anyone in the party is likely to breach any of the Conditions in terms of the number of persons staying at the Property;
9.10.2 Incorrect information has been provided to Celebration Holiday Homes in respect of the booking; and
9.10.3 Anyone in the Guest Party has behaved in a vexatious, abusive or unlawful manner towards the host or any third party supplying services to the Property or any neighbours of the Property.
9.11 The above actions as stated in clause 9.10 above shall constitute a breach of contract by the Guest and the Owner shall consider the booking as cancelled by the Guest. In these circumstances, Celebration Holiday Homes shall not be liable to the Guest in any respect and the Lead Guest will only be entitled to a refund as per the cancellation terms in schedule 9.6 if the action occurred before arrival at the Property. If the action occurs after arrival the Owner can terminate the agreement immediately, with no compensation or liability being owed to anyone in the Guest party by either Celebration Holiday Homes or the Owner.

14. Extra amenities
14.1 Where the property has a hot tub and/or a sauna there are specific measures in place.
14.2 These amenities should be used with great care and user manuals and safety signage should be referred to where available.

14.7 In addition to the safety instructions sent out, the Owner will provide user instructions for each amenity and will explain how to safely use the amenity at the Welcome Meeting. These instructions must be complied with by all persons using each amenity. Failure to observe the instructions may result in the amenities being deemed closed for the rest of the duration of the Rental Period.
14.8 For health and safety reasons the hot tub will be required to be emptied, cleaned and refilled between every guest booking. If a house has a departure and arrival on the same day this will mean that the hot tub may not reach temperature until the following morning.
