Covid-19 and other Contagion Clauses:
COVID SYMPTOMS DURING YOUR STAY
- In the event that you or one of your party develop symptoms of COVID-19 (or similar contagion) and Government guidance or regulation prevents you from travelling home as planned, I will permit you to extend your stay for the period of isolation required by the Government at the same nightly rate as you paid in your original booking plus an additional 3 nights charge allowing for post-infection cleaning procedures required by regulation before the house can be used again.
CANCELLATION ON OUR PART DUE TO COVID-19
- I may need to cancel your booking at short notice due to COVID-19 or similar contagion (e.g. for outbreak on the island, return to lockdown, or the guests before you having to self-isolate). If our cottage is not available, I will try to find similar alternative accommodation for you but cannot guarantee this will be available. In such cases my liability to you will be limited to returning all monies received by me for your booking (or moving your booking plus money paid to another suitable date).
LIMITING LIABILITY FROM ANY INFECTION
- I will make you aware of the measures I have taken to comply with Government guidance to reduce the spread of COVID-19 or similar contagion. If you expect or require any additional measures to be taken, please let me know asap.
