Due to the unforeseen circumstances all around the world regarding the Corona virus - COVID-19 and with respect to the Greek authorities and the World Health Organisation, we are obliged to take extra measurements to protect our clients and their reservations made with Luxury Villas on Crete.

Vouchers will last for a period of 18 month from the day of issue. Vouchers can be used to re-schedule dates for the same villa and the same amount of original payment. In case the voucher amount is less then the customer have to pay the difference either wise if the amount is more then by mutual agreement another voucher can be issued or a refund of the remaining balance will be issued to the customer. In case a customer do not wish or make use of the voucher by the end of the 18 month period then a total refund of the original prepayment will be issued then. All vouchers are covered by the protection against the insolvency of the organizer as provided in article 16 of p.d. 7/2018
