GENERAL INFORMATION & ADVICE

We want you to be as happy as possible from the moment you select your

holiday until you return home. Along with the hotels which we use, we try our

very best to make your holiday as enjoyable as possible. To help you to make

the right selection and for what you can expect from us, please take a moment

to read the following points.

HOTELS

We offer a range of hotel accommodation which have different

levels of comfort, facilities and quality. When selecting your

holiday please ensure that the quality will match your requirements.

This is generally related to the cost of the holiday but if you have any

specific requirements please talk to our staff who will be able to help.

Some of our hotels have chosen not to be members of the RAC/AA and as

such are not star rated. This is not necessarily an indication of a lower standard

of accommodation.

If you have special requirements please notify us as soon as possible. The hotel

will be notified before your arrival but please remember that rooms are

allocated by the hotels.

Rooms for Single Occupancy are in high demand and very often are sold out.

Some hotels charge a supplement for these rooms, the cost of which is

indicated in this brochure.

We try to indicate all the room and hotel facilities for each hotel within the

information in this brochure but cannot accept liability for any alterations made

by the hotel before our arrival. Sometimes amenities such as swimming pools

and lifts may be out of service whilst entertainment may be curtailed, altered or

cancelled due to hotel number.

Hot drink making facilities are not normally available in Continental hotel

bedrooms but are usually available at the bar/café.

When travelling abroad, you should expect the food to be served in the national

custom and therefore different to British cuisine. For some hotels, particularly

overnight hotels the restaurant will serve a set menu. If, when you are at the

hotel, you require an alternative this is normally available but may incur an

additional cost for you.

These days, many hotels are excellent at providing Special Diets. Please let us

know as soon as possible so they can make preparations early.

Many meals are taken as a group in the restaurants and usually involve sharing

tables with 2 or more other diners in our group.

HOLIDAY ITINERARIES AND SUITABILITY

We pride ourselves on the planning of our holidays to provide an exciting

and enjoyable holiday experience. Many are planned months in advance and

may require adjustment to the itineraries due to changes at destinations or

attractions.

Our itineraries are displayed in the brochure and you should carefully consider

suitability before booking your holiday. You are, of course, quite welcome not

to join any particular excursion during your holiday.

Provided we are informed before departure, we are happy to take manual

walking aids and folding wheelchairs up to 15kg in weight. Unfortunately, we are

not able to carry any electric wheelchairs or scooters, although these are often

available to hire at the destination.

HOLIDAY CANCELLATION

If we have to cancel a holiday this is always done well in advance of your

departure date and a full refund is given.

Due to the contract obligations and financial commitments we have with hotels

if you have to cancel your holiday you will have to pay cancellation charges.

These are based on the following scale depending on how close to departure

we receive your cancellation.

More than 42 days – Deposit only

42-28 days – 30%

27-14 days – 45%

13-7 days – 60%

Less than 7 days – 100%

However, if you do cancel more than 42 days before your departure date we will

transfer your deposit less a £10 per person administration fee to another holiday

currently available.

We do advise you to take out travel insurance to cover any of your loses.

LAST MINUTE BARGAINS

If you want to receive last minute bargains, special offers, extra

dates and more please join our mailing list by either filling in the

form on the website or contacting the office.
