Programme and prices
As described in the brochure, leaflets, correspondence or amendments notified to you and acknowledged by you.
Please forward a deposit per person of:
- £100 for travel in the UK
- £150 for travel within Europe
- £350 for travel beyond Europe
Balances are required in time to pay suppliers, usually ten weeks before travel. Sometimes we have to pay group tickets earlier and the balance due date shown on the confirmation will reflect this. While we are establishing a viable tour group deposits are fully refundable; when we confirm the operation of a tour your deposit will become committed.
All bookings are required to be covered by Fidelity Insurance. This is a financial protection insurance, which protects your money until the holiday goes ahead. This is included in the holiday price.
Deposits paid by credit card will be excluded from credit card charges, however full balances paid by credit card will be subject to a 2.1% charge. This is the same as we are charged by the credit card companies due to the ever increasing use of credit cards we are no longer able to absorb this cost. There are of course no charges if you pay by Switch, cash, bank transfer or cheque.
Our cancellation policy for all our tours is as follows:
- Cancellation prior to 12 weeks before departure – loss of deposit
- Cancellation between 8-12 weeks prior to departure – 25% refund only
- Cancellation less than 8 weeks prior to departure – no refund
Passports, Visas and Health
Travellers are responsible for possessing the correct documentation but we are willing to advise. You should seek professional medical guidance. Where security risk exists or arises Foreign and Commonwealth Office and tourist board guidance will be sought and passed on.
