To secure your booking usually a deposit (or full payment if you wish) is required at the time of booking; we do not accept provisional bookings so please do not make a booking unless you are in the position to honour it. Once a deposit has been paid the remaining balance must be paid through BACs or debit or credit card at least 14 days before your stay.

Currently we are offering a Wigwam ® Holidays Booking Guarantee to allow you to move your booking to a new date at no extra cost if you or a member of your party is prevented from enjoying your holiday because of Government requirements for self isolation or non-essential travel – the terms of the guarantee can be viewed here: https://www.wigwamholidays.com/your-money-is-safe-guarantee
