Booking Advice

•    On Country Cottages Online you’ll find holiday rentals listed direct by the independent owners and also holiday rentals listed by agencies.  The agencies on the site range from big UK brand names to small regional family businesses.

•    Some holidaymakers prefer to pay by credit card and book online where this is available.  Owners and agencies are increasingly offering the possibility of booking online.  We show where owners or agencies offer online booking.

•    Some independently owned cottages do not currently offer online booking and payment for these properties is usually by cheque or bank transfer.

•    You should always call the owner or agency on the phone number given on the site and check over any bank details and payment methods quoted in email before placing a booking.

•    If you are booking with a smaller independent owner, stay safe and never complete a Bank transfer to outside of the UK or Ireland without first emailing Country Cottages Online to check that the bank details are correct.  Most holiday home owners featured on our sites are based in the UK or Ireland so requests for foreign bank transfers should be viewed with extreme caution and verified with us via email first.

•    It is strongly recommended that you take out appropriate holiday insurance.
