The retainer deposit will be refunded to you within 7 days of holiday ending provided you have observed the terms and conditions herein contained.

Acorn Caravan Holidays have the right to deduct any sums from the retainer deposit should any of the terms and conditions herein contained be breached by you.

The full price of the holiday without deduction of the retainer deposit is due a minimum of 2 months prior to commencement of the holiday start date unless otherwise agreed at time of booking.
