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 sophie@besidetheseaholidays.com and acknowledged by us by return email.

What if I want to cancel more than 60 days before arrival?

Master Cancel does not cover cancellations made more than 60 days before the arrival date. Our standard cancellation terms apply for cancellations made more than 60 days before the holiday start date less than 2 days before your holiday start date. You need to provide written notice that you wish to cancel your booking via email, and the email must come from the email address used to make the booking, registered on the booking record. It must be sent to us at sophie@besidetheseaholidays.com and an acknowledgement received from us.
If you have only paid a deposit, you will not be required to pay your final balance. We will make the dates available to be re-booked. If they are re-booked, we will be able to provide you with a refund of your deposit paid less the booking fee. If the dates aren’t re-booked, we will be unable to provide a refund.

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. 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 sophie@besidetheseaholidays.com. 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.

How much will I receive if I have to cancel within the 2-60 day period to be eligible for Master Cancel?

You will receive 100% of the payment you made to us less the booking fee.

How soon will I receive my refund when claiming under Master Cancel?

You will receive your refund within 24 hours of the final day of the holiday that has been cancelled.

Is COVID-19 included?
