Booking Details

Extended cancellation policy (21-22 academic year bookings):


Students who make a booking  after 14/01/2021 but before 31/05/2021 can benefit from this extended cancellation policy:


Some properties have an extended flexible cancellation period for 21-22 academic year bookings. Properties will allow cancellation of your booking up to 31st May 2021 for any reason without penalty, and they will refund your security deposit in full as outlined in the standard cancellation terms.


1. This applies to any tenancy length for 21-22 academic year bookings only.

For the avoidance of doubt, it does not apply to any bookings for accommodation during the 20-21 academic year or summer 2021 period.


2. You must notify us in writing (including email) no later than 23:59:59 on 31/05/2021. After this date, the standard cancellation terms apply.


3. This promotion is in addition to standard cancellation terms which continue unaffected.


4. This promotion only applies to bookings made directly with us or through an agent and does not apply to bookings made via universities or other institutions as part of a nominations or referral agreement unless expressly specified.


5. Cancelling your booking using this promotion invalidates any other promotion you may have been eligible for, including but not limited to any prize draws, cashbacks or referral incentives.


6. Existing customers must be up to date with payments due on their account to be eligible for this promotion.


7. they reserve the right to withdraw or change this promotion at any time, and the new terms in place will then apply to bookings made after any amendment.


Cancellation Policy


You can cancel your booking up to 14 days after you accept your offer or pay your deposit (the Initial Cancellation Period), which reduces to 7 days from 1st August ahead of the academic year being booked, providing you have not already moved in to the property and they will refund your security deposit in full. Deposits will normally be refunded within 28 working days of cancellation, however  legal obligation as a landlord is to secure all deposits with a third party protection scheme. In the event that your deposit has already been sent to the protection scheme by the time you cancel your booking, your refund could take up to 60 days to be refunded due to the protection schemes processing period and your deposit refund will come directly from them you will need your repayment ID which will be sent to you directly by the protection scheme.
