We levy a damage deposit of £1,000 for all our chalets except Les Chardons.
We pre-authorise the payment (in a similar way to car hire companies and hotels), and this authorisation will be cancelled after your return, upon satisfactory inspection of the chalet.
If there is an amount required to cover the cost of any damage, we will then use the authorisation to debit your credit card.
When the chalet is booked by several individual couples or parties, we ask for £100 per person, taken by the same pre-authorisation method.
We reserve the right to levy a damage deposit of £1,000 per chalet on all-male, all-female (stag/hen etc), or young groups (under 21) staying in any of our chalets.
We do not accept American Express, bank transfers or cheques for damage deposits. We advise you to give us a credit card for your damage deposit authorisation as some banks do actually remove the funds from a debit card! Please note if this happens, it is not YSE holding the funds, it is your bank!
There is more information on the Wear and Tear page about how we deal with any damage.
