  2. You must pay a minimum of 50% of the rental price on booking, with the remainder of the balance payable 28 days before your booking date. If a booking is made less than 21 days before the start of the booking date, please send the full rental charge at the time of booking. Failure to pay the balance of rental charges, or failure to allow BMA to take the balance by credit card by the due date (21 days prior to arrival), will result in BMA treating the Property as available for re-booking. No reminders are sent out.

  3. Please notify BMA of any cancellation in writing. If a notice of cancellation is received between the dates of your deposit being received and the final payment being due then the deposit will be retained unless the Property can be re-let. If cancellation is made within four weeks of the holiday start (i.e. the whole rent has been paid) then the whole amount paid will be retained unless the Property can be re-let. If a re-let is successful then a full refund will be made, less an administration fee of £25. If the Property cannot be re-let then no refund will be given.
