At the Holiday Villa Company Ltd we act as UK agents for the owners and managers of the holiday accommodation we offer, our availability is updated daily however, there's the possibility that your chosen property was booked earlier in the day.
Our payment method ensures customers do not pay for bookings that are later found to be unavailable and gives us the opportunity to speak with clients before they commit (to make sure they have made the right choice) and to ensure that their villa choice is confirmed before they book flights. We only accept payments from our direct clients over the phone with credit card details (telephone orders) and payments are processed on our secure online terminal.
Bookings from online channels such as HomeAway and Owners Direct are paid by card transaction once confirmed, with details securely shared with us to take the necessary payment. Once processed, we do not retain your card details so we need to make contact again to process subsequent payments. Customers outside the UK often wish to pay by bank transfer and we will forward details of our Euro holding account and transfer instructions on request
We recommend that you pay by credit card for flights, car hire and supplementary services, to ensure your payment is protected by the card schemes in case of non delivery of the services booked.
Why you should book with a reputable operator?
There are literally thousands of people renting out their own holiday accommodation and the choice can be mind boggling as everyone competes to make their holiday villa seem more attractive than the rest. This wider choice looks like good news for the consumer but the trouble is that most suppliers are unregulated; can the owners really vouch for the quality of their own holiday villas? With only their word to go on, no guarantee of security for the money you pay to them, and often no help available if things go wrong - it can be a risky way to secure the family holiday.
On the other hand, the Holiday Villa Company Ltd offers a high degree of certainty in an uncertain market. We personally inspect the holiday villas we offer, so you can be sure that standards are high and, because we know the villas personally, we can advise on the suitability of each villa for your family's requirements. You'll be choosing from a hand-picked selection giving you a better choice and quite frankly, if a villa is not right for you we'll tell you. How many individuals renting their own villas would be that honest?
Important Note - please ensure you book your flights through an approved ATOL bonded supplier, we can assist with advice if required.
We are PCI DSS compliant and keep our payment methods secure so customers can trust us with their sensitive payment card information. When we stay compliant, we are part of the solution – a united, global response to fighting payment card data compromise.
