6. Cancellation Policy
All cancellations must be made in writing.

In the event of a cancellation we will make every effort possible to re-let the property you have booked. If we are successful then full repayment of any funds paid will be made provided we can re-rent the same property, for the same or greater amount, less an administration fee of £50. If the amount the property is rented for is less than your original booking, you will only be refunded the difference, less the administration fee. However, if we are not successful in re-letting the property then any funds paid will be forfeit. We therefore strongly recommend cancellation insurance.

If we are forced to cancel your booking for reasons outside our control we will endeavour to first offer you alternative comparable accommodation at no extra cost to you. Should we not be able to provide a suitable replacement property we will reimburse any sums already paid by you in respect of the accommodation. DBS will be under no further obligation or liability for any losses or expense arising from these alterations.

There are no further circumstances for which DSB will be liable for a refund.

DSB shall be allowed access to the property at all reasonable times for purposes of inspection or to carry out any necessary repairs or maintenance.
