If you are unable to contact the Owner or his representative.  You must give the Owner the opportunity to try to resolve any problems or complaints you may have whilst you are at the property. Any refusal of this or of reasonable rectification may prejudice your rights to compensation. The owners may need time to make arrangements.

Owners/keyholders/repair people must be given access to the property if you have a problem. We reserve the right to contact the Owner or housekeeper at any time during this process, and you must agree to meet with the Owner/housekeeper directly to discuss the problem.  All complaints must be made to the Owner in writing.  Complaints received at the end of the holiday will be processed, but there is no guarantee that your complaint will be upheld if there has been no attempt by you to try and resolve the issues whilst you were at the property.

If the problem was not resolved to your reasonable satisfaction during your holiday, you should put your comments in writing to us within 7 days of your return. We will forward your written complaint to the Owner and will, within reason, liaise with the Owner to assist in reaching a satisfactory settlement for all justifiable complaints regarding the property you may have.  However, it is your responsibility to take the complaint up with the Owner directly if no satisfactory settlement can be reached.
