We offer 100% Financial Protection when you book your holiday. We endeavour to, where we can, protect your booking by paying your money into our voluntary Trust account. These monies are held until the date you arrive for your vacation. In situations where your money has not been paid into the Trust account, your monies are held by Scent of Italy pending payment to your accommodation supplier or villa owner before your arrival. Please check your booking confirmation and booking conditions to establish whether your monies have been paid into Trust or where your monies have not been paid into Trust since Scent of Italy will be paying the supplier directly. This means that you can book your holiday in complete confidence, with the peace of mind that your money is always safe and secure.
How does it affect me? Because your money remains in the Trust Account until your arrival, if, for the reasons specified in our Booking Conditions, your booking is cancelled, and you do not wish to choose an alternative booking/accommodation, you will receive your money back straight away. This provides you with full financial protection and security.
We offer Travel Insurance, refunding our Customers for the cost incurred (up to 3% of Booking Value and not cumulative with other discounts). Please feel free to contact specialist Insurance Brokers, Campbell Irvine Direct for a quote.
It's worth mentioning that, in addition to covering medical emergency treatment overseas if diagnosed with COVID-19, the cancellation cover will also cover if you have to cancel your trip if diagnosed with COVID-19.
