how to MAKE A BOOKING
Booking a villa with Crete Escapes is quick and easy. Simply browse the website and check availability for the villa you're interested in. If your selected villa is available you can book via two methods:
Option A - Pay a 10% deposit and book a villa online in order to reserve your dates straightaway.
Option B - Make a provisional booking, allowing you time to confirm other travel arrangements.
See below for more information regarding these options.
For details about what's included in your booking and details about sofa bed charges and discount calculations, please read our essential reading section.
If you're booking late and have fixed dates you may find it easier to check availability using the search facility on our home page. Simply enter your details and press the "search availability" button. You’ll be presented with a list of all available villas.
If you’re booking late and your dates are not fixed then we suggest you use the general availability search which shows all the villas, month by month and allows you to see at a glance, what’s available and when.
Please note: Whilst prices quoted throughout the website are in GBP sterling, for the convenience of our Eurozone clients, we can also accept payment directly into our eur account. Please email for more information.
Booking your holiday early - we appreciate some customers prefer to book early so they get the pick of the villas and/or dates. Please note that if you book a villa before flight schedules are released and then need to make changes, we will do our best to accommodate them, subject to villa availability and a small administration charge of £50.
Option A: Online Bookings
We require a deposit of 10% (minimum £50 gbp per week). Balances are due no later than 6 weeks prior to the rental starting.
To make a confirmed booking online, just follow these simple steps:-
- Click the “Check Availability” button of your selected villa and choose the arrival date you want to book via the interactive calendar.
- Enter the number of adults, children or infants and the number of nights you wish to stay. Then click 'book now' to be taken to a secure server to make a 10% deposit payment. If booking within 6 weeks of departure, payment of the full rental will be required at the time of booking.
Payment can also be made by direct bank transfer (in sterling or in euros) or by debit or credit card over the phone. Use the “Payment Methods” drop down menu on the booking request form to stipulate your payment method.
Please note: Online booking is not available for Villa Kerasi (apart from July and August).
Option B: Provisional Bookings
We are happy to hold provisional bookings for up to 48 hours. To make a provisional booking, please complete the two above steps and then do the following:
- In the comments box, request us to hold the villa for 48 hours while you confirm flights and travel details.
- In the 'payment method' drop down box, state that you will pay by bank transfer. Payment can still be made online, but by choosing this option you will not be taken to an online payment page.
We will hold the villa and send you a link to enable you to pay the deposit online should you wish to proceed. If you don't send the deposit (or contact us) within 48 hours your booking will automatically expire.
Alternatively, contact us via our enquiry form, email or call our low cost calls number on 0330 111 0061.
