Help with making a booking
The booking process is easy. We use a shopping cart to process both bookings and enquiries, though you can also use the basic enquiry form in the CLICK HERE TO CONTACT US ABOUT THIS HOME link in any villa web page.
The advantage of using the cart to enquire or book is that it automatically works out the correct price for the dates you have specified. When just making an enquiry, you don’t need to give your credit card details.
To enquire or book using the shopping cart, just find the villa you are interested in, fill in the details in the Enquire or Book Online area:
Booking Type – select Booking or Enquiry
Arrival Date – Select the day, month and Year of arrival
Departure Date – Select the day, month and Year of departure (i.e. the day you leave, not the last night you stay)
Tick if you require pool heat. This is useful from late autumn to early spring but please bear in mind that pool heaters can only raise water temperature by around 10 degrees so in particularly cold weather they will only warm the water relatively.
We have listed the full process below for completeness, though in practice it is very straigh-forward and intuitive – you shouldn’t need to refer to it whilst making your booking.
In the cart you can enter any special instructions or requests in the box provided, then click on any of the following buttons:
Recalculate is useful if you have added several dates to the shopping cart to check out prices. If you change the quantities of the bookings you don’t want to 0 (zero) and press the recalculate button, the cart will show just the booking(s) you want.
Continue Booking takes you to the 2nd shopping cart screen to complete your booking or enquiry:
Back to website just takes you back to the Alpha Florida Vacations home page.
Takes down your normal contact details, and also asks:
details of the numbers of adults and children in your party and that you have read and accept our terms and conditions, and whether you want your details storing on your computer for future use (this feature stores a cookie on your computer that is used solely to complete your shopping cart details if you make a booking in future with us – it is not used or intended for any marketing purpose).
The button then takes you to a the 3rd screen.
This is a confirmation screen for you to check you have entered your details correctly
It also asks you to select one of four ‘Payment Options’ before clicking the Continue button
Select Credit Card, or Check and you will be directed to a secure server to collect your card or check details. Once you have entered your payment details, you will get a thank you for your order message with a reference number and an email confirmation of your booking.
If you are just making an enquiry, select Enquiry and you will get a thank you for your order message with a reference number and an email confirmation of your booking.
Note that until you receive the confirmation screen your booking or enquiry request has not been processed.
