Is this still possible?All holidays will be subject to the government policies at the time of your stay and rules upon household mixing at your residential address must be adhered to whilst on holiday with us. 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.
