We endeavour to offer the best price online for your holiday, supported by our Best Price Guarantee.
Best Price Guarantee (UK)
all our owners commit to offering coolcamping.com exactly the same, or
lower, prices than on their own website (or any other website) we are
confident that our prices are the best available. So, in the unlikely
event that you do see the same accommodation available on another
website for a lower price - just let us know. We guarantee to match it,
and we may even be able to beat it. We will also send you a free Cool Camping book for taking the trouble to let us know!
Best Price Guarantee (Europe/worldwide)
For accommodation outside of the UK, we also ask for the same commitment from our owners, offering coolcamping.com exactly the same, or lower, prices than on their own website or any other website. However, with daily exchange rate fluctuations, it is possible that prices may vary slightly between websites. So while we are unable to offer the same cast-iron guarantee as for UK accommodation, you can still be confident that our pricing is competitive, and in some cases may be cheaper than that available on the owners website. In the unlikely event that you do see the same accommodation available on another website for a lower price - please do let us know, and we will endeavour to match it or beat it.
