What are the advantages of a holiday home/holiday apartment for groups?

Living in a holiday home or holiday apartment as a group creates a communal experience that strengthens cohesion and provides unforgettable memories. Holiday homes and holiday apartments offer plenty of space, though also the opportunity to withdraw if needed. In the fully equipped kitchen, meals can be prepared and enjoyed together. This not only fosters a sense of community but also keeps meal costs low. Sharing the costs of a holiday home among several people often makes the vacation cheaper than booking separate hotel rooms.

What to do if someone in the group has to cancel their vacation?

Discuss in advance how cancellations will be handled. Determine whether and how this person remains responsible for any of the expenses that have already been incurred. Fair cancellation conditions are essential for group trips. Information on current cancellation policies can be found for each resort under "Contact & Arrival", and in our terms and conditions.
