Financial Security


Your financial security and peace of mind

At the Holiday Villa Company we act as UK agents for the owners and managers of the holiday accommodation we offer. As we are not selling a package holiday, we are not obliged to offer protection for your holiday payments however, we take our financial and moral responsibilities very seriously. We protect all payments made to us for your holiday accommodation against our financial failure by a policy secured with Guarantees and Bonds Ltd. We recommend that you pay by credit card for flights, car hire and supplementary services, to ensure your payment is protected by the card schemes in case of non delivery of the services booked.

Why you should book with a reputable operator?

There are literally thousands of people renting out their own holiday accommodation and the choice can be mind boggling as everyone competes to make their holiday villa seem more attractive than the rest. This wider choice looks like good news for the consumer but the trouble is that most suppliers are unregulated; can the owners really vouch for the quality of their own holiday villas? With only their word to go on, no guarantee of security for the money you pay to them, and often no help available if things go wrong - it can be a risky way to secure the family holiday.

On the other hand, the Holiday Villa Company offers a high degree of certainty in an uncertain market. We personally inspect the holiday villas we offer, so you can be sure that standards are high and, because we know the villas personally, we can advise on the suitability of each villa for your family's requirements. You'll be choosing from a hand-picked selection giving you a better choice and quite frankly, if a villa is not right for you we'll tell you. How many individuals renting their own villas would be that honest?

Important Note - This policy will not cover any other elements of your holiday, to save any disappointment please ensure you book your flights through an approved ATOL bonded supplier, we can assist you if you need any help.
