When booking by Booking.com full payment of your visit is due to be paid to me, I then pay back the commission due.


After arrival should there be a need to curtail your stay, for any reason, the full amount of the booking is due.

If your visit was paid in full, in advance, and cancelled up to 14 days before the start date, a refund, minus the deposit (see above) will be available.  If cancelled within 10 days of the start date, the full amount will be due and if already paid will not be refunded.
