Arrival Terms & Conditions

HOME FROM HOME endeavours to be as flexible as possible over arrival times but we do request that they are during sociable hours (9.00 am - 6.00pm pm Monday to Friday). We cannot guarantee an early let-in unless you book your apartment from the night before however we will do our utmost to fit in with your arrangements where possible. It is mandatory that you will be met by a driver if your arrival is outside office hours (9.00 am - 6.00 pm Monday to Friday). If you wish to be met at the property and your let in is within office hours, please e-mail Home From Home to confirm the exact time and other details:

In the case of transfers from railway stations your confirmation will explain the vehicle waiting location. Please read your confirmation carefully and keep it to hand with other travel documents.
