If the complaint cannot be dealt with you will be asked to complete a ‘holiday report’. This will allow the complaint to be understood and dealt with in the most efficient manner possible. If any problems were not dealt with by a Barrington Holidays representative, 24hr service line or any independent business supplying a service booked through Barrington Holidays please submit any complaint within 28 days to allow it to be investigated properly. We hope that this practice will allow all issues to be resolved to your satisfaction. Barrington Holidays accept no responsibility for events beyond our control.
