What are Riviera Holiday Homes’ cancellation conditions relating to COVID-19?

We understand that the ever-changing Covid-19 situation creates a lot of uncertainty and that you may be nervous about going on a trip. Our team is here to reassure you! 

All the answers to the questions which we have thought of as of 01.11.2020 are here bellow and we hope these conditions will allow you to look forward to your long-awaited holiday with undue concern.

For the avoidance of doubt, we have added the following 4 clauses to our cancellation conditions, If you are unable to travel, for the period of the booked stay, due to one of the following scenarios related to COVID-19 (effective on the date of arrival):

  • If the government of the country of origin of the person who made the reservation forbids all travel abroad to France.
  • If travel or border restrictions in France (ordered by the French government in response to COVID-19) prevent the person who made the reservation from travelling to France or to the rented property.
  • If the French government decides, up to the day before arrival, to impose quarantine restrictions on the country or geographical zone of the property for the period of the client's stay. This is on condition that the client does not spend the quarantine period in the reserved property.
  • If there is a mandatory lockdown and travel prohibition in France or the country of origin of the person who made the reservation.

If you can justify being unable to travel due to at least one scenario related to COVID-19 as described above in our cancellation conditions, a refund will be made under the following conditions:

  • you can cancel your reservation at any time. Any deposit will be retained until the date of arrival and returned no later than 15 days afterwards if one of the conditions described in our cancellation conditions is effective at the time of the booked stay.
  • If you cancel your reservation, and on the date of your stay there is no restriction on travel, your deposit will be refunded solely in the case where the property has been re-let in the meantime. If the property has not been re-let, and you still wish to cancel, Riviera Holiday Homes will keep the deposit.
