Travel to Carrick Eriskay

Rentals booked after 31 May 2020 with an arrival date before 27 March 2021 :

If on the day you are due to arrive at Carrick Eriskay you are prohibited from doing so by laws regulations or orders made by the Scottish Government in response to an outbreak (or risk of an outbreak) of COVID-19 (for example – prohibiting you from using a ferry or flight or ordering you to self-isolate), you should notify us of this fact immediately.  Your booking will be treated as having been cancelled by you ; but if you provide us with verifiable evidence that you were prohibited from travelling to or occupying Carrick Eriskay, we will refund to you all the money you have paid to us for the rental that is in excess of the booking deposit.

Alternatively, when you provide the evidence that you were prevented from occupying the property, you may request a postponement of the booking, in which case the full amount that you have paid for the rental will be applied to the replacement rental.

Enhanced Cleaning

We’ve now introduced procedures for enhanced cleaning between bookings.  We already have a long-held and hard-earned reputation for cleanliness and presentation, but our procedures now additionally include thorough disinfection and sanitization, carried out in accordance with UK-wide government guidelines for cleaning in non-healthcare settings.

The additional equipment, labour and consumbles will add very significantly to our costs. We’re able to absorb some of the increase, but its affect on short bookings is so significant that we have no choice but to modify our pricing model, so as to ensure that bookings of less than a week contribute meaningfully towards the additional costs.  It’s not all bad news, however : the price for bookings of about a week will not noticeably change, and longer bookings – especially those of a fortnight or more – will cost slightly less than they would have cost before the changes.   It is, surely, only fair that those staying for longer don’t subsidize those staying only for a short break, or that a couple don’t subsidize a large family or group of friends.

The need for enhanced cleaning will be reviewed at least monthly, and any changes that are necessary will be implemented promptly. Whilst we would certainly not retrospectively increase charges, we may, if appropriate, retrospectively reduce or eliminate the additional charges, and refund to the guest the savings.
