Bookings and Payment

A 30% deposit (non-refundable) is required to confirm your booking. The balance payment is due on or before 10 weeks prior to your check-in date.

If your booking is made within 10 weeks full payment will be required at the time of booking. In the event of non-payment we will treat this as the booking has been cancelled by you. (See cancellation rules.)

We recommend only booking your flights after you have received your confirmation invoice.

All names of persons staying at the villa must be given to us before departure. Ocholo must be informed of any additional persons staying at the property and there may be extra charges incurred. The number of people staying at the property must never exceed the advertised amount of people the property sleeps unless previously arranged with us in writing.

Cancellation

If you need to cancel your arrangements the lead name on the booking must advise us of this in writing. Your notice of cancellation will take effect once this is received. As we incur costs from the time your booking is made we will levy the following cancellation charges:

  • More than 70 days prior to arrival date: Loss of deposit

  • 43-55 days 75% of full cost of holiday
  • 42 days or less prior to arrival date: 100% of full cost of holiday

For any product booked with suppliers where Ocholo are acting as a retail agent cancellation terms of the supplier may be different to the above terms set out. In the case where we are acting as an agent to a supplier this will be detailed on your booking confirmation and each suppliers terms and conditions will apply to your booking. You may request a copy of these at any time.

Any Insurance or amendment fees are always non-refundable.

Cancellation of ‘extras’ booked in addition to your property may be chargeable differently to the above terms and we reserve the right to pass on any charged levied to us by outside suppliers.

If changes need to be made to your booking by us for reasons beyond our control we will notify you in writing and where possible we will offer a similar alternative product or service, if this is not possible or not available/acceptable we will refund monies in full.

Passport information

As a European legal requirement passport details of all guests must be submitted to the local authorities of your accommodation destination. (The equivalent of a hotel check-in service).

You may request a copy of these at any time.

Government action such as increases in a VAT or any other Government imposed increases or charges not controlled by us will result in surcharges being added to your final holiday cost.

Where we are acting as a retail agent our suppliers may have different terms and conditions, we will make this clear if there are any extra charges to be paid for in resort or before departure.

Included in the accommodation price:

  • Rental of the accommodation for the booked period

  • Security deposit - some of our partners may require a refundable security deposit to be paid before arrival. We will make you aware of this.
  • Tourist taxes - if we are notified that a tourist tax needs to be paid we will pass this charge on to you. We will notify you of this immediately if we are made aware of this. If this is already in place you will have been made aware of this at the time of booking.
