Clean & Safe

The Portuguese hotels, golf courses and other tourism facilities together with the "Turismo de Portugal" (Portugal Tourism board) have reacted very fast to the new reality and have developped a new Hygiene and Security Protocol with the "Clean and Safe" stamp. 

Cancellation policy

Most of the hotels, golf courses and resorts have shown full flexibility on that subject with easy rescheduling and cancellation. 
It is necessary to have a cancellation deadline to avoid no-shows and total disorganization on the hotels and golf courses side. 
For individual bookings, the cancellation release period is variable from unit to unit and is in average from 7 days to 48hrs before arrival (sometimes more depending on the unit).
Each golf package has its own specific cancellation policy, so you may contact us to know more.

When possible, we try to propose golf packages to our clients which do not require pre-payment.

Considering the uncertainty involved with travelling in 2020 and 2021, we make regular check with the clients to assess the evolution of the situation in their country of origin, in Portugal and other variable factors. Closer to the official cancellation deadline, we check if it makes sense to ask for an extension of the deadline.

National Health Service - phone line

On Portuguese territory, travelers from affected areas who show symptoms suggestive of respiratory disease during or after travel should immediately contact the National Health Service by calling 808 24 24 24 (SNS24).

We wish to all of our clients around the globe to keep safe!
