OUR COMMITMENTS TO YOU
ACCEPTANCE OF YOUR BOOKING
We will confirm the details of your booking as soon as possible after we receive your initial deposit and the booking form, duly completed and signed by yourself. A receipt from us for this deposit does not on its own constitute acceptance of the booking by us.
The prices of all tours may be increased by the amount of changes in exchange rate if the increase is in excess of 2% (N.B. any increase of less than 2% will not result in any increase to you the party leader). The company will only pass on to the party any net change exceeding 2%. If this means you paying more than 10% on the holiday price, you will be entitled to cancel your booking with a full refund of all money paid. Should you decide to cancel because of this, you must exercise your right to do so within 14 days from the issue date printed on the invoice for the increase. No change will be made within 30 days before the departure date. If however you benefit from any currency changes, refunds will not be made.
All prices quoted are calculated by references to the relevant exchange rates published in the Financial Times in September 2017 as set out below.
£1 = €1.1285 Euros
Because we have to absorb some increases in costs, we cannot give any refunds in the event of favourable currency movements.
CANCELLATION OR CHANGES MADE BY US
(A) For reasons beyond our control
If we have to cancel a booking or
make a material alteration in any of all of the
agreed arrangements within an 8 week period
leading up to your departure we will do our best
to offer alternative arrangements of a
comparable standard, if this is not possible or
in your opinion not acceptable then a full
refund will be issued, unless the change is due
to circumstances beyond our reasonable control,
including but not limited to war, political
unrest, civil commotion, industrial dispute,
natural disaster or any other cause beyond our
control. Any monies due will be made
promptly (within 14 clear days).
(B) For any other reason
It is most unlikely that we would cancel any tour or make a material alteration in any or all of the agreed arrangements at any time after booking except for reasons beyond our control. However, if we have to do so, we shall inform you without delay and you will have the following choice:
(a) in the case of a cancelled tour: accepting an alternative tour which will be of at least comparable standard if available OR a full and prompt refund of all money paid (within 14 clear days).
(b) in the case of a material alteration: accepting the alteration which will be of at least comparable standard, if available OR a full and prompt refund of all money paid (within 14 clear days).
If we make a material alteration in any or all of the agreed arrangements less than ten weeks before departure for any reason except those beyond our control, you will also have the right to receive reasonable compensation. We will not make any material alteration to a tour unless there is time to inform you not less than fourteen days before the scheduled date of departure. We will not cancel any tour less than ten weeks before departure for any reason except those beyond our control.
Of course we hope that you and your party will enjoy a trouble-free and successful tour. If you do have any complaint, please inform us as soon as possible. Notice in writing of any claim or dispute arising out of this contract must be received by us within forty-two days of the date of which the tour ended.
