All bookings and payments accepted by Camstay are subject to these terms and conditions. Your booking is only confirmed upon prepayment of the total price, which will be taken in the 5 days before arrival.
All prices on our website are inclusive of VAT, which is charged at 20% for the first 28 nights (5% between 15th July 2020 and 30th September 2021 / 12.5% between 1st October 2021 and 31st March 2022) and then reduces to 4% from night 29 onwards (1% between 15th July 2020 and 31st March 2022). All prices are based on costs prevailing at the time of quotation and may be subject to change.
Payment must be made in UK Pounds Sterling and must be clear of all bank charges, exchange rate variations, and any other deductions. Camstay are pleased to accept the following methods of payment - credit/debit card, PayPal and direct bank transfer. Your booking reference number should always be quoted.
The price charged depends on the length of your stay. If your stay reduces in length resulting in your stay falling into a different discount level, you will be required to pay the difference in the two rates from the start of your stay.
CANCELLATION AND CHANGES
For free cancellation policies, you may cancel 1 day before arrival. If cancelled later or in case of a no-show, the total price of the reservation will be charged. Cancellations must be made in writing by registered delivery, online or via email. You are responsible for ensuring the notification has been received. You will be deemed to have cancelled your booking on the day your notification arrives at our office.
If you wish to alter your booking (e.g. change the dates of your stay or the property), Camstay will use all reasonable efforts to comply with your request, however we cannot guarantee that we will be able to do so and accept no liability for any loss, damage or additional expense that may be incurred in those circumstances. Delayed arrivals and early departures will be treated as cancellation, and so will be subject to the cancellation charges above.
Camstay will not be liable for any delay, loss, damage or expenses incurred if your booking needs to be altered or cancelled or we are unable to perform our contractual obligations as a result of events beyond our reasonable control, which shall include but not be limited to events such as war, civil strife, terrorist activity, labour disputes, natural or man-made disaster, fire, flood, and adverse weather conditions.
