CANCELLATION POLICY FOR ANY GUESTS DUE TO TRAVEL FROM 1 – 30 SEPTEMBER 2020
Any guests not able to travel in September due to the extended closure of BodyHoliday and Rendezvous Resorts, will be issued a Refund Credit Note which will grant a waiver of the standard cancellation charges and allow guests to rebook within 12 months of original travel dates. Any credit notes that have not been redeemed within 12 months will be granted a full refund on request after 6 month of issue or at the expiration of the Refund Credit Note.
The rebooked dates will be granted subject to availability and must be the same duration and room category as the travel originally booked in order to incur no additional charges. Rebooking between the 21st December 2020 and the 5th January will incur supplemented charges.
Any cancellation request received that does not meet the above criteria will still incur the applicable cancellation terms as booked. Any exception requests will be reviewed and considered solely on a case by case basis.
The above will only be applicable for any guests due to arrive up until the 30th September 2020. Should this position change in the meantime a further statement will be issued.

The cancellation policy for any guests already booked and due to arrive post 1st October 2020 until the 30th November 2020, will be extended to 7 days prior to arrival. Following initial deposit, any guests wishing to cancel their reservation will be able to do so with no penalty up to 7 days prior to arrival.
Guests due to arrive prior to the 30th October 2020 that wish to defer their travel and move their date may also be permitted to do so subject to availability of requested dates and must be the same duration and room category as the travel originally booked in order to incur no additional charges. Rebooking between the 21st December 2020 and the 5th January will incur supplemented charges.
