5 Deposits and Cancellations.
A £200 non-refundable deposit is payable immediately to secure your booking, the balance of the holiday must then be settled no later than 42 days prior to travel. If you are making payment via cheque or bank transfer please be mindful of the clearance time.
In the unfortunate event that you need to cancel your booking this must be done by e-mail to  iancox@golfmatestravel.com at your earliest convenience.
• If you cancel your booking after the outstanding balance has been paid and up to 14 days before travel you will be refunded the balance payment in full less a cancellation fee of 10%.
• If you cancel your booking less than 14 days before the travel date no refund will be given. This is due to the resort having been paid by us and no refund can be given.

If you do not qualify for a voucher then you must claim on your own travel insurance
• If payment is not received by the due date, we will cancel the booking and no refund will be offered.

If you decide to vacate the accommodation prior to the expiry of the holiday, #GolfMatesTravel will not offer a refund.
We reserve the right to cancel your holiday. In the unlikely event that we do, you will be offered the choice of a refund as per our conditions or a holiday of a comparable standard.
#GolfMatesTravel predominately deals in Euros meaning that our prices, when converted to GBP, are always subject to fluctuation. For customer convenience we offer several ways to make payment, when you have decided which best suits you this must be confirmed on e-mail to ourselves at ian@golfmatestravel.com. If you would like to discuss these options further please do not hesitate to contact us.
Payment in full at time of booking – Payment will be made based on the exchange rate at the time of booking.
Fixed price – #GolfMatesTravel will provide a price (in GBP) for your holiday based on the exchange rate at the time of booking, we will then guarantee that price for you.
Please note the £200 booking fee still applies at booking along with the balance being due 42 days before travel.
Variable Price – #GolfMatesTravel will provide an estimated price (in GBP) for your holiday based on the exchange rate at the time of booking, however you will then be able to make payment for your holiday at any time up to 42 days before travel.
