We have tried to reduce our terms of booking as we are confident that our clients will honour their contract with us and, in return, we shall endeavour to ensure that all of our obligations are fulfilled to the best of our ability. However, your attention is drawn to the following booking conditions before signing your booking/registration form. Other published conditions relevant to any of the services supplied by other companies and booked by us on your behalf are available upon request.
MAKING YOUR BOOKING & YOUR CONTRACT
All booking applications should be accompanied by a completed and signed Booking or Registration Form. If you are making your booking more than 13 weeks prior to the departure date a deposit (minimum 10%) is due. Bookings taken within 13 weeks of departure require the full amount to be paid. Please check your receipt/invoice, confirmation invoice and/or itinerary and travel documents as soon as you receive them and contact us if you think any details are incorrect. We regret we cannot accept responsibility if you fail to notify us of any problems straight away.
When the reservation is made with another holiday company their booking conditions apply.
PASSPORTS & VISAS
All British nationals must hold a full 10-year passport, with at least 6 months validity remaining, for entry into most countries. Visas are the responsibility of each person travelling but advice and assistance will be provided when asked. Nationals of other countries must check with the appropriate consular authorities.
VACCINATIONS & HEALTH
