16.4.1 If the guest cannot go on their holiday due to a legal restriction from any of the UK’s governments then a guest will have the option to choose a transfer of their dates, a voucher for the full amount they have paid or a full refund for the amount they have paid.

16.4.2 If a guest chooses not to go on their holiday due to guidance from any of the UK’s governments then they can request a transfer of their dates if they wish, or we will do our best to facilitate a good outcome through one of our other policies. Unfortunately, in the case of government guidance that does not preclude a booked stay occurring, a full refund may not be given. 

16.4.3 Where possible, we will be asking all guests to consider transferring their booking to a later date if they cannot, or do not, wish to travel.
