8. Booking changes or cancellations

Changes

In case you have to change any of the pre-confirmed services, the number of persons in your group or transfer your booking to another person, the person who originally booked the holiday must send us written notice by email.

Cancellation costs:
We can’t guarantee that changes can be met, although we will do our best to assist. Since we incur costs in canceling or changing your arrangements, all such changes and cancellations will be subject to charges. Where we are unable to assist with making a requested change, and you do not wish to proceed with the original booking we will treat this as a cancellation by you. If there are specific cancellation conditions for particular arrangements, these will be referred to in the paragraph headed “Cancellation Policy” in your enquiry. If no such specific conditions are detailed, cancellation charges set out below shall apply.

Since we incur costs in canceling your travel arrangements, such as for the flights which are non-refundable in all cases, you will have to pay cancellation charges as follows:

  • More than 30 days – Deposit only
  • Between 15 and 30 days – Deposit and 50% of final payment
  • Less than 15 days 100% of holiday cost

The cancellation charge detailed is calculated on the basis of the total cost payable by the person(s) canceling excluding insurance premiums and amendment charges which are not refundable in the event of the person(s) to whom they apply canceling.

If the reason for your cancellation is covered under the terms of your insurance policy, you may be able to reclaim these charges. We will deduct the cancellation charge(s) from any monies you have already paid to us.

9. If we change or cancel your holiday

Changes

It is highly unlikely that any changes will be made to your holiday and any changes that do occur are usually minor. If a major change occurs you will have the option of either i) accepting the change ii) purchasing another holiday from us or iii) canceling your holiday

Cancellation

We reserve the right to cancel your holiday, but if we do you will be offered the choice of a full refund or a holiday of comparable standard.  On no account will we cancel your holiday within 8 weeks of departure other than for reasons of force majeure or in the event that payment is not received by the due date.

Cancellation Compensations:

A cancellation compensation of 5% of the total cost of the tour if the withdrawal takes place over 10 days and less than 60 days before the date of the travel; 15% between 3 days and 10 days, and 25% within 48 hours prior to departure.

No compensations will be applied for reasons of force majeure.

Even in this case, we will absorb an amount equivalent to 2% of the holiday price which excludes insurance premiums and any amendment charges. Only amounts in excess of this 2% will be surcharged.
If this means paying more than 10% of the holiday price you will be entitled to cancel your holiday with a full refund of all monies paid, except for any premium paid to us for holiday insurance and amendment charges. Should you decide to cancel because of this you must exercise your right to do so within 14 days from the issue date printed on the invoice.
Any surcharges will be notified to you no later than 30 days prior to departure.

In exchange for this guarantee, we will not make any refunds in the event of a favorable variation to currency rates.

Special note on COVID-19 situation

The Covid-19 pandemic has created an unparalleled global crisis for the entire travel industry leading to an unprecedented amount of cancellations and curtailments throughout the world. Consequently, Casanova Golf, in line with other travel companies is applying exceptional measures when dealing with these bookings. Casanova Golf are offering Refund Credit Notes to all customers which can be used to secure a new Casanova Golf holiday.

Should a PCR test be required to enter the destination of a purchased trip, the arrangements within the required timescale and related costs will be entirely the customer’s responsibility. Once the trip has begun, should the client present any symptoms related to COVID, resulting in the modification of the contracted services, (e.g. night’s stay, changes of hotel or flights) any additional expenses will be the customers’ responsibility and must subsequently be claimed from their insurance company.

12. Passports, Visas and Documentation

All passports, visas, and health documentation are your responsibility.  If you are refused travel entry into a country because of documentary irregularities Casanova Golf S.L. cannot be held liable.

13. Descriptions

The descriptions of the hotels and golf courses and other aspects of the holidays are based on opinions gained on on-site visits and on the opinions of hotels themselves. We are not always able to exercise control over all the components of the holiday arrangements and it is possible that an advertised amenity be withdrawn or changed due to various reasons such as water conservation, renovation work, etc. We will advise you if we become aware of a major change but we cannot accept liability for loss, damage, or inconvenience in such circumstances.

14. Alterations of Arrangements

Should events beyond our control require it, Casanova Golf S.L., reserves the right to alter or modify the itinerary without advance notice, to withdraw any tour component from your trip and/or to substitute a tour component of equal standard.

15. Tee times

Golf courses reserve the right to alter confirmed tee times. If your confirmed golf club cancels your reservation or changes your tee time we will try to find a suitable alternative. You will be charged or refunded for any difference in the original cost. Such changes do not entitle you to cancel a holiday that is part of a package.

Please also be aware that some golf courses may pair you up with other golfers during peak times.

“No-shows” and non-used green fees

This will not entitle any player to reimbursement in any of the golf courses selected. Non-used green fees will not be refunded.

16. Course Conditions

We cannot be held responsible for the actual playing conditions of the golf courses whether caused by course maintenance, or weather conditions etc. Golf course closure due to bad weather conditions is at the discretion of the golf course.

17. Handicap Certificates

In some cases, certificates must be produced prior to play.  We recommend you take a Certificate with you to avoid any disappointment.
