Terms and Conditions
"easy-breaks.com" or "we" and the customer ("you", "the customer")
Please read these terms and conditions carefully in order to avoid any misunderstandings regarding the terms on which reservations are accepted.
Your contract is with easy-breaks.com. A contract will exist as soon as we issue our confirmation. It is made on the terms of these booking conditions. You will see that how the terms apply to you varies depending whether you have purchased hotel accommodation only or a package from us. A package is a combination of two or more components, such as accommodation plus a tourist service, sold at an inclusive price.
All easy-breaks.com holidays offered are subject to availability prior to booking and hotels only have a limited number of rooms available at the published rates. Hotels may sometimes change dates or acts published on this website due to external circumstances.
All easy-breaks.com rates quoted are per person, per break, subject to availability and based on 2 guests sharing a double or twin room. Single and family rooms are available on request, please ask us for more details. Please note that easy-breaks.com holidays are valid for the months stated, however it is very likely that traditional holiday projects, annual and town events may be excluded from the offers. Please ask one of our sales agents should you wish further clarification.
Certain hotels offer dinner, bed and breakfast packages where dinner is taken from the a la carte menu, and in such cases a specific amount from the DBB package rate is allocated for dinner. Please note that this allowance can be exceeded if desired, with any excess amount being payable on departure from your hotel. Where we have been advised of a dinner allocation, this is noted in the break entry.
Please note that packages with inclusions in addition to bed and meal basis, e.g. spa treatments, attraction visit, room upgrade and named activity amongst others, are offered on a subject to availability basis and that easy-breaks.com is unable to influence the provision of these services. In addition, opening times and availability of attractions can also be subject to change without prior notice to either easy-breaks.com or the partner hotel concerned. Transport to and from any attractions/inclusions is not provided unless otherwise stated. Where inclusions are received in your room or with a meal (e.g. wine, chocolates, etc) this may be on a per room basis rather than per person and only apply to two people sharing a twin or double room.
Where a hotel is offering a date specific event package, please note this may be subject to change or cancellation. Should this circumstance arise, this is out with the control of easy-breaks.com
easy-breaks.com will guarantee that you always pay the best price available. If you see a lower publicly available rate arriving on the same date for the same duration in the same hotel utilizing the same accommodation type and on the same meal basis, we will price match this rate.
easy-breaks.com holidays are only available by pre-payment at the time you make your booking, whether by credit card, debit card, or easy-breaks.com voucher.
easy-breaks.com offers "cash back booking protection" at a charge of £12 per room which gives cover for a full refund of all accommodation costs up to 24 hours prior to arrival (arrival being 3pm on first date of holiday). This allowed you to cancel or amend for whatever reason, material or otherwise, with a full refund. It is only with booking protection that Easy-Breaks.com can offer a refund. Booking Protection is automatically added to your online reservation. Prior to providing payment details, you will have the opportunity to remove the booking protection. Any refund made will be as per your original payment method Bookings arriving between 23rd December and 2nd January inclusive and certain other bookings, specified at point of sale, will be subject to separate terms and conditions which are available on request.
ARRIVAL AND DEPARTURE
Some hotels can accommodate the early arrival of guests; however it is unlikely that bedrooms will be available before 15:00 hours. It is requested that guests vacate their rooms before 11:00 hours although this may vary from hotel to hotel.
ALL PRICES ARE PER PERSON AND BASED ON TWO GUESTS SHARING A DOUBLE/TWIN ROOM, UNLESS OTHERWISE STATED. FOR ALL OTHER ROOM TYPES PLEASE CALL EASY-BREAKS.COM DIRECTLY ON 08430 55 44 33
easy-breaks.com will do our best to correct errors and omissions as quickly as possible after being notified of them.
