Bookings as an Agent
For some of the holidays we sell we are acting as an agent for carefully chosen luxury tour operators. In this instance the tour operator is the Principle booking agent and their terms and conditions will apply. We will inform you of their terms and condition before completion of your booking.
In some instances a deposit may be required to make a reservation. The deposit amount will be determined at time of booking. All reservations are subject to cancellation if the full deposit is not received within the option period specified at the time of booking. Deposits are non-refundable unless TLSE Ltd or our third-party supplier cancels your booking as seen in ‘Cancellations’.
Final payment in the form of a debit or credit card (Visa®, MasterCard®) or bank transfer must be received on the date stipulated at the time of booking. Payment policy for group bookings may vary.
Failure to strictly comply with the deposit and final payment schedules, or any other applicable policies and procedures, will result in the automatic cancellation of any pending reservations and Contracts.
Prices may differ to the ‘Prices From’ seen on our website. This will depend on the room type, season and availability. We will advise you of the exact price of your spa experience, stay, spa break or wellness holiday before you confirm your booking.
Published prices may also vary upwards or downwards due to changes in government action such as changes in VAT, level of other taxes and fees, tourist taxes, or any other government-imposed changes or exchange rate variations. If the increase is an increase of 8% you may cancel the Contract and receive a full refund of all monies paid except for any administration charges. No consequential costs or expenses or loss of profits will be payable. Should you decide to exercise your right to cancel where there is an increase of 8% or more, then you must exercise this within 14 days after the date notified or presentation of the further invoice or such other time as may be reasonably requested. Alternatively, you can accept an offer of an alternative TLSE Ltd package. If the cost of the alternative package is less than the original package, the difference in price will be refundable. If the cost of the alternative package is more you will be liable for the increase in price should you wish to book this. Where you do not confirm within 14 days or with a the period specific whether you wish to accept the proposed change or terminate the contract TLSE may terminate the contact and refund all payments made except for any administration charges without undue delay and in any event not later than 14 days after the contract is terminated.

TLSE Ltd will not charge you if the change cannot be implemented. Please note that not all requested amendments will be granted. No changes can be made without this being agreed by the third-party supplier.
If you wish to cancel your booking you must inform TLSE Ltd in writing by emailing [email protected].
Your notice of cancellation will only take effect when it is received in writing by TLSE Ltd and will be effective from the date on which we receive it. Since we incur costs in cancelling your arrangements, you will be subject to the applicable cancellation charges shown below.

In order to ensure that we can provide adequate assistance, and also consider whether the spa experience, stay, spa break or holiday is generally suitable for any person with reduced mobility you must notify us of any special needs of you or your booking party at the time of booking. If you need an accessible room, then you must ensure that this is booked – as there may be a limited number of rooms available.
