Terms and Conditions
A booking is not considered binding until such time as the deposit is received by us and the confirmation issued to you. The balance of the booking payment must be paid to us no later than 10 weeks prior to arrival. All bookings made less than 10 weeks before arrival date should send full payment to us on the day of booking. Clients who have not paid the balance by the due date are liable to have their booking cancelled with charges being applied in accordance with the scale below. We advise all clients to make the deposit payment by credit or debit card.
Our contract with you is for accommodation only. It is your responsibility to arrange flights but we would ask you to ensure the accommodation you wish to book is available and has been reserved for you prior to booking your flights. We can place a property on hold for you for 24 hours to allow you to coordinate both accommodation and flights. If you do not confirm the booking within 24 hours, the hold will expire and the property will be placed on our available list again. Should your flight be subsequently cancelled or flight times altered, we will do our utmost to accommodate the changes but we cannot be held responsible if we are unable to do so. If you cancel your booking with us as a result, cancellation charges will apply according to our scale.
It is your responsibility to ensure your passport and/or visa are in order. Holders of current UK and other EU member state passports do not require visas for travel into other EU member states. If you are unable to travel as a result of your documentation not being in order, you will not be entitled to claim any refund from us. Cancellation charges would apply according to our scale.
Due to local regulations, you may be asked for your passport details prior to arrival or on arrival. This would be for each adult in the party (over 16 years of age).
All guests must ensure that they are fully covered with an adequate holiday insurance either at the time of booking or shortly after. Lanzarote Villa Choice are unable to help with any costs that would be covered by a holiday insurance

Should you choose not to accept the alternative offered, the booking will be considered as having been mutually cancelled and any monies already paid to us will be refunded to you. We cannot be held liable for any other costs incurred by you. We will not be liable for cancellation or charge to your booking as a result of war, riots, civil commotion, strikes or other industrial action, disasters, acts of God, government or local authorities or any other event outside our control.
