Is this still possible?All holidays will be subject to the government policies at the time of your stay as will rules upon household mixing. This extends to what facilities will be allowed to open during your stay. This guidance may change in the period between booking and arriving at The Point. Due to the continued uncertainties, we will only ask for the final payment 3 weeks before your holiday is due to start, instead of the usual 6 weeks.My holiday is already booked. Can I cancel?Unfortunately, the deposit for your holiday is non-refundable. However, due to the current uncertainties, we have delayed your final balance payment to 3 weeks before arrival date. At this point, you may defer your holiday up to a year and no amendment fee will be charged. Once the final payment has been made the holiday cannot be cancelled or deferred. In exceptional circumstances, we will contact the owner of the property on your behalf. What will happen if the government imposes travel restrictions?We will continue to work alongside government guidelines, so if tighter restrictions on the movement of people nationally are brought into place or extended to Cornwall your holiday will be cancelled.
