Making alterations to bookings
You may want to make alterations to your holiday cottage or self catering accommodation booking after you have made the bookings. The rules vary among holiday cottage owners and self catering accommodation booking agencies but here are some general guidelines on what can normally be expected.
You need to contact the holiday cottage owner or self catering accommodation booking agency and discuss the changes. Changes to an already booked holiday involve extra paper work and require the self catering accommodation booking agencies to contact the owner of the holiday property. To cover these additional costs you need to pay an administration fee for changes.
What can be done depends on your requirements and what you want changing. Holiday cottage owners and self catering accommodation booking agencies will try to help you out but if your requirements are difficult then you may be charged extra.
A change of person or additional person is normally possible so long as the number of people staying does not exceed the holiday cottage's stated limit.
A change of dates for the same holiday cottage or self catering accommodation is only possible if there are no bookings for that holiday cottage or self catering accommodation for the required dates. Remember that the holiday cottage owner or self catering accommodation booking agency has the additional problem of re-letting the property for your original booking dates.
Changing your booking to another holiday cottage or self catering accommodation means cancelling the original booking and booking another property. Some holiday cottage owners and self catering accommodation booking agencies will charge you a cancellation fee for the original cottage, which can be costly.
