Terms and Conditions for Hired Holiday Accommodation

Introduction

Trusthorpe Springs and Lakeside Springs are family orientated parks catering for owner occupied holiday caravans/letting caravans/touring caravans/trailer tents/tents/motor caravans. Our guests’ enjoyment and safety is paramount and therefore we ask you to read the following Terms and Conditions before making your booking.

We reserve the right to ask guests who contravene these terms and conditions or, who in any other way are behaving in a manner likely to cause distress or nuisance to other visitors, to leave the park immediately. In these circumstances the holiday ceases and we shall not be liable for any extra costs incurred by you.

Access Statement

We seek to provide the very best service to all our guests and have a specially prepared access statement available on our website at www.springsholidayestates.co.uk which describes the facilities we have to offer on the Parks.

Contract

The contract is for a short-term holiday rental of the property specified on the booking form made between the client and the owners of Springs Holiday Estates ("the owners"), binding from such time that booking is made and inclusive of all the following conditions.

By making a booking the client contracts on behalf of himself/herself and all those in his/her party and represents that he/she has the authority to accept these conditions on behalf of and binding upon all guests in his/her party.

Bookings are accepted on the understanding that the property is taken for holiday purposes only and that, excepting babies, the number of people in each property is limited to that entered on the booking form.

The client and any friends or family of the client visiting the property while the client is staying there must adhere to the conditions of the contract, including the rules and procedures contained in the information folder provided in the property.

We cater for families and couples and do not accept bookings from all male or all female parties of three or more persons. We also reserve the right to refuse any booking.

The terms contained in this contract do not affect your statutory rights.

Booking conditions

Bookings can be made in the following ways:

~ Use the Booking Form on the website and pay by cheque or postal order (cheques payable to Springs Estates (Lincs) Ltd).
~ By telephone on 01507 441333 using a credit/debit card
~ Using our on-line booking service at www.pitchup.com
~ In person, subject to availability, at the park

The person who signs the Booking Form is responsible for the booking and warrants that they are over 18 years of age and that the party will not exceed the numbers stated on the booking form.

The information supplied on the Booking Form will be stored on computer for administrative purposes. Under no circumstances will this information be provided to a third party.

The Price of the Holiday

Once you have made your booking, the price of the holiday will not be subject to any change unless the rate of VAT changes.

The balance of the price of your holiday must be paid 14 days prior to arrival for commencement of the rental. If the balance is not paid in time then we are entitled to cancel the holiday and retain your deposit.

Deposits

When booking £50.00 per week booked when booked direct to us. A 15% deposit based on the holiday cost is required when booked through “Pitchup.com”

Payment

The full balance of the holiday accommodation cost is to be paid no later than 14 days prior to the start of the rental period.

Cancellation of the Holiday

You may cancel your holiday at any time. Cancellation will be effective on the date it is received by us. However cancellation charges are payable as follows:

15 days or over notice                                                                Deposit Only

14 days and under notice                                                         No Refund of Payment

Any payment made to “Pitchup.com”, the online booking service, is non-refundable on cancellation and forms part of any refund the company may give.

Non-payment of the balance of the cost of the holiday accommodation on or after the due date may be construed as a cancellation of the contract by the client.

Any cancellation made by the client for whatever reason shall be in writing and addressed to the address on the website.

It is regretted that no refunds can be given if guests depart prior to the end of the booked holiday, unless they do so as the result of the breach of some obligation on our part which would justify cancelling the holiday.

The client is strongly advised to take out holiday cancellation insurance.
