Why Choose Our Very Best?
At Our Very Best we understand that our holiday choices are amongst the most important we make. We believe the strongest factors in consistently making great choices are word-of-mouth and strength of personal recommendation from people we trust

That is why Our Very Best has assembled an exceptional group of ‘Experts’ - Our Regional Directors and Associates make selected holiday recommendations based on their deep personal experience and local knowledge. That means we commonly feature boutique locations and resorts that are not normally found in tour operator brochures or on the 'aggregator' websites

Flexible Budgeting
For all early bookings, we allow you the flexibility of paying just a 20% deposit and then making subsequent payments of any amount you choose, as often as you like. Our only requirement is that your outstanding balance is fully paid within 45 days of your check-in date. Manage your payments however you like through your Members Area

We do not charge for paying by credit card and your payment will be made by our secure payment processor direct to the resort with which you have booked. We do not store financial details such as credit or debit card numbers

We do not process your payment until we have confirmed your booking and our indicative pricing is on a per room (or villa) per night basis

Full refunds for cancellations requested within 48 hours
We will confirm availability and complete the booking with your accommodation provider within 24 hours of your booking request
However, to allow you time to make your flight bookings and any other arrangements, we offer full refunds for all cancellations requested through your Members Area within 48 hours of us having confirmed availability
