CoachStyle Hello, and a very warm welcome to the CoachStyle 2016 brochure. CoachStyle is the group’s bargain brand, offering great coach trips to a wide range of destinations, all whilst keeping costs as manageable as possible. This means fun and value-for-money on all coach trips for the family.

2016

2 days from £69

1) What documentation do I need to travel and will I be sent tickets? You can travel on your confirmation issued upon final balance payment. If your tour includes tickets i.e. event admissions they will be passed to you by your tour driver on the day of the event. 2) I’ve lost my holiday confirmation. How do I get a replacement? Call one of our friendly travel advisors on 0115 9770080 who will be happy to re-issue your documentation. 3) Will you send me a reminder of when my balance is due? No. It is your responsibility to make sure your payment is made on time. Failing to do so may result in your booking being cancelled.

This brochure encloses all of our fantastic CoachStyle destinations for the coming year and each trip will include:

4) Who do I make my cheque payable to? Please make cheques payable to ‘Skills Holidays’.

• A mix of guest style accommodation along with 2* and 3* hotels

5) If I make changes to my holiday will I be charged? Yes. We charge an administration fee for any amendments made to your booking, please see Section 19 of our Trading Charter for full details.

• Some of our independent hotels are classed as unrated but rest assured quality and customer service are uncompromised

6) Is it compulsory to take travel insurance? It is a condition of booking that you have valid travel insurance. If you do not currently have a travel insurance policy, we do offer fully comprehensive policies (including cancellation cover), for all of our UK, Ireland and Continental Tours, starting from only £17 per person.

• Coach travel on a range of our vehicles • Flexibility to plan your own itinerary at the excursion destinations • Low cost breaks for the cash savvy traveller

7) Why do I have to pay a single supplement? Many of the hotels we use charge a supplement for single rooms or double rooms used for sole occupancy. Unfortunately, this is standard practice within the hotel industry. We do offer a selection of holidays which do not carry a single supplement charge; early booking is highly recommended.

Skills remains a local family business, hence our strong belief in the local community. We pride ourselves on offering a diverse range of holidays and enjoyable days out for singles, couples and families, which are tailored to suit any budget - Our philosophy is a holiday isn’t just about the destination it’s about the whole experience.

8) Can I reserve a seat on the coach? Yes. At the time of booking you will be advised on the availability of seating. You can pick your seat, which will be allocated to you throughout the duration of your holiday. Please note seat numbers do not apply on shuttle or feeder services. Please see T&C’s.

I’m very proud of the team here at Skills and we look forward to welcoming you on board in 2016.

Nigel Skill Chairman, Skills Group of Companies

15.7 Our suppliers (such as accommodation or transport providers) have their own booking conditions or conditions of carriage, and these conditions are binding between you and the supplier. We may take the benefit of such booking conditions where any claims are brought against us. Some of these conditions may limit or remove the relevant transport provider’s or other supplier’s liability to you. You can get copies of such conditions from our offices, or the offices of the relevant supplier. 16a. What do I need to do if I wish to complain? 16.1 If you have a complaint during your holiday you should tell the driver/ representative or supplier at the earliest opportunity so that they can do their utmost to resolve the problem immediately. 16.2 If they are unable to resolve the problem to your satisfaction you should complete a Holiday Report Form which is available from the driver/ representative. 16.3 If, on your return from holiday, you are dissatisfied you should write to us within 28 days. You will need to quote your booking reference number. 16.4 If you do not tell us at the earliest opportunity about a problem giving rise to your complaint we cannot take steps to investigate and rectify it. In deciding how to respond to your complaint we will take into account the date you first drew the problem to the attention of our driver/representative or supplier. 16b. If I do not agree with your decision can I request arbitration? If we cannot resolve your complaint amicably you may request that the dispute is referred to an arbitration scheme established by the Confederation of Passenger Transport UK (CPT). Please note: this scheme does not apply to claims that arise mainly in respect of physical injury or illness or the consequences of any illness or injury. 17. Children 17.1 Our Day Trips (without accommodation) and our Packages (with accommodation) may not be suitable for children (i.e. those under the age of 18). 17.2 It is in our absolute discretion whether a child (under the age of 18) is to be accepted on our Day Trips or Packages. 17.3 If in our absolute discretion we agree to accept a child on our Day Trips or Packages:17.3.1 The child must be accompanied at all times by a full fare-paying adult either a parent or other person with parental responsibility for the child, or by an adult who has been given written permission to accompany the child by such person. 17.3.2 Infants under 2 years of age, when on a coach, must at all times sit on the lap of the accompanying adult, and must be provided by the adult with an approved restraint device which must at all times be securely fitted by the adult. 17.3.3 Children aged over 2 years but who have not yet reached 12 years or 135cm in height must be provided with a suitable child restraint by the accompanying adult. 17.4 There may be a reduction in the cost of the holiday when a child travels with an adult. Please see our brochures for details of such arrangement. Such a reduction may apply when the child is under 2 and does not occupy a coach seat of its own. 18. Coach seating 18.1 We seek to provide coach travel as described in our brochures or advertisements but we reserve the right to substitute suitable alternative arrangements and vehicles, and to vary seating configurations should this be required. 18.2 We will seek to fulfil, where possible, a passenger’s preference for a particular type of seat where this is communicated to us in writing at the time of booking. However we cannot guarantee that such a preference will be fulfilled or that passengers on the same booking will be able to sit together for the whole or part of any holiday. 19. Hotel Facilities 19.1 We constantly strive to offer hotels of an appropriate standard as part of our Packages. 19.2 However some hotel facilities, such as indoor or outdoor swimming pools or leisure facilities may from time to time be withdrawn or not be available for example for routine maintenance or be subject to seasonal availability. 19.3 The provision of hotel facilities cannot therefore be guaranteed. 20. Health & Safety on holiday 20.1 In countries outside the UK, standards of infrastructure, safety and hygiene may be different or lower than those to which we are accustomed in the UK. You should therefore exercise greater care for your own protection. 20.2 Further information can be obtained from your GP or from your travel agent who can provide you with the leaflet “Health Advice for Travellers” published by the Department of Health. 20.3 Some people may be at risk from discomfort or deep vein thrombosis (DVT) if they remain immobile on a journey for a long period of time. If you are planning to undertake a bus or coach journey of more than 3 hours you should consult your doctor if you have ever had DVT or pulmonary embolism, a family history of clotting conditions, cancer or treatment for cancer, a stroke, heart or lung disease or if you have had major surgery in the past 3 months. We reserve the right to refuse any booking in the absence of a doctor’s certificate confirming that you are fit to travel. 20.4 During the journey we will endeavour to provide comfort stops as frequently as possible. Comfort stops are necessary both for your comfort and for the health and safety of our coach drivers and employees. During these stops you are encouraged to get off the coach and walk around. Exercise reduces any discomfort which may be caused by periods of immobility. During any journey you should drink alcohol only in moderation as it leads to dehydration. 21. Disabilities and medical problems 21.1 Should you or a member of your party have any medical condition or disability that may affect your/their holiday or that of other passengers, you must provide full written details to us at the time of booking. This should include a full description of the medical condition and/or disability, of any disability aids/medical equipment you may be intending to bring on holiday and of any other matters which may be relevant to your participation in the holiday. This is so that we can advise you of the suitability of the holiday. This applies whether the booking is made on-line, in person, in writing, or by telephone. 21.2 If a particular issue is identified, we reserve the right to request a doctor’s certificate confirming that the passenger is fit for travel and reserve the right to refuse any booking or to cancel any booking in the absence of such doctor’s certificate being produced upon request. 21.3 If a passenger requires personal assistance (for example but not limited to assistance with embarking, disembarking, feeding, dressing, toileting, mobilising, stowing medical or mobility equipment) then this passenger must travel with an able bodied companion/carer and written confirmation that such assistance will be provided for the entirety of the holiday is required at the time of booking. Unfortunately coach drivers/tour managers are unable to offer such assistance. 21.4 Whilst we will make every reasonable adjustment to do so, if we are unable to accommodate the needs of a passenger or believe that the medical condition or disability of a passenger is likely to adversely affect other passengers, we reserve the right to decline or cancel the booking. 21.5 We also reserve the right to cancel any holiday and impose cancellation charges if we are not fully advised of any relevant disability or medical condition at the time the booking is made and subsequently decide that we are unable to accommodate this passenger. This applies whether we advise that we are unable to accommodate a passenger either before departure or during the holiday and if this occurs during the holiday then we will seek the additional

34

costs in so far as we choose to return the passenger home. 21.6 Please note: Our coaches have limited accommodation space for wheelchairs. We are generally only able to accommodate either 2 folding wheelchairs or 1 folding wheelchair and 1 light dry cell motorised wheelchair/ mobility scooter (weight not exceeding 15kg) per coach. You must check at the time of booking as to available space for your device and such devices can only be carried when we have confirmed our ability to carry the device on your booking confirmation. We reserve the right not to carry such devices where space has not been pre-booked.

charges for all holidays both within and outside the UK. 29.2 You do not need to take out our travel insurance but you should have insurance, which is at least as good as, or better than, the insurance we offer. If you do not have adequate insurance and require our assistance whilst on holiday, we reserve the right to reclaim from you any medical repatriation or other expenses which we may choose to incur on your behalf which would otherwise have been met by insurers. 29.3 We strongly recommend you obtaining a European Health Insurance Card (“EHIC”) for all holidays within the EU.

22. Force majeure 22.1 Except where otherwise expressly stated in these booking conditions we will not be liable or pay you compensation where the performance of our contractual obligations is prevented or affected (for example but not limited to delay, cancellations, change of itinerary, change of accommodation, change of transport) by “Force Majeure”. 22.2 Force Majeure means an event which we or the supplier(s) of the service(s) in question could not, even with all due care, foresee or avoid and is therefore an event beyond our or the supplier’s reasonable control. 22.3 These events include but are not limited to strikes, riots, political/civil unrest, government acts, hostilities, war, threat of war, terrorist activity or threat of terrorist activity, industrial disputes, natural or nuclear disaster, fire, flood, tornadoes, hurricanes, transportation and mechanical problems, airport closures, and severe weather conditions. 22.4 We suggest that you take out adequate travel insurance to cover such eventualities. 22.5 In the unlikely event that the performance of our contractual obligations are prevented or affected due to Force Majeure after departure, we regret we will be unable to make any refunds (unless we obtain any from our suppliers). Advice from the Foreign Office to avoid or leave a particular country may constitute Force Majeure. For your safety, we will follow the advice given by the Foreign Office.

30. What assistance will you give me if things go wrong when it is not your fault? 30.1 If you, or any member of your party, suffer death, illness or injury whilst overseas arising out of an activity which does not form part of your Package travel arrangements or an excursion arranged through us in the UK, we may, at our discretion, offer advice, guidance and assistance. 30.2 Where legal action is contemplated and you want our assistance, you must obtain our written consent prior to commencement of proceedings. 30.3 Our consent will be given subject to you undertaking to assign any costs and benefits received under any relevant insurance policy to ourselves. We limit the cost of any assistance we may, in our discretion, choose to give to you and any member of your party to £5000 per party in any event.

23. Passenger behaviour 23.1 We want all our customers to have a happy and carefree holiday. 23.2 But you must remember that you are responsible for your behaviour and the effect it may have on others. 23.3 If you or any member of your party is • abusive or disruptive; or • behaves in a way which, in our reasonable opinion, could cause - distress, damage or injury to others; or - affect their enjoyment of their holiday, or - damage to property, we have the right, after reasonable consideration, to terminate your contract with us. If this happens we will have no further obligations or liability to you. 23.4 The coach driver and tour manager (and where appropriate the ship’s captain, or authorised official of other means of transport) is entitled to refuse you boarding and/or to disembark you, if in their reasonable opinion you are unacceptably under the influence of drink or drugs or you are being violent or disruptive or are causing distress. 23.5 If you are refused boarding on the outward journey we will regard it as a cancellation by you and we will apply cancellation charges according to the scale in clause 12. If the refusal is on the return journey we have the right to terminate the contract and will have no further obligations or liability to you. 24. No smoking 24.1 We operate a strict no smoking/alcohol policy on all our coaches. 24.2 We appreciate the co-operation of smokers and remind them that frequent journey breaks are made and bookings are taken on this understanding. 25. Other restrictions 26.1 You must not use mobile phones or other electronic devices on the coach in a manner which, in the reasonable opinion of the coach driver or tour representative, might annoy or distress other passengers or our staff. We would request that mobile phone devices only be used on the coach in the case of emergency. 26.2 You must not consume alcohol on the coach. 26. Pets We do not allow pets to be taken on our holidays. Registered Assistance Dogs will normally be accommodated on UK holidays but not on overseas holidays. 27. Pick up point, itineraries, travel documents and passport 27.1 You should check with us between 7 and 14 days prior to your scheduled departure to ensure that the departure point and departure time for your holiday has not been changed. 27.2 You are solely responsible for ensuring that you are at the correct departure points, at the correct time, with the correct documents (including where appropriate original tickets, identification and travel documents and passport). 27.3 We cannot be held liable for any loss or expense suffered by you or your party because of the absence of such documents or your late arrival at the departure points. 27.4 If you are a British citizen travelling outside the United Kingdom you must have a full UK passport valid for a minimum of 6 months after your scheduled date of return. 27.5 Non-UK citizens must seek passport and visa advice from the consulates of the countries you plan to visit prior to making a booking for one of 27.6 The name on the passport/travel document must match the name on the ticket. If someone in your party changes their name after the booking is made you must tell us immediately so that we can issue the ticket in the new name. 27.7 When you have paid the balance we will send you or your booking agent all the necessary travel labels so that you receive them in good time for your holiday. 27.8 Certain travel documents may have to be retained by us and your driver/ courier will then issue them to you at the relevant time. If you lose a travel document after it has been issued to you we will require you to meet the direct cost charged by the carrier/supplier for the issue of a duplicate or replacement. 27.9 We reserve the right to modify itineraries to conform with advice and requests from the competent authorities in the United Kingdom and any other sovereign state through which the tour will operate. Included excursions are detailed on the relevant brochure page and refunds will not be made for any excursion taken. 27.10 Optional excursions may be booked and paid for in resort but these will not form part of any Package booked with us. 27.11 Admission fees to events, shows, buildings, grounds etc. are not included in the price of the holiday unless expressly stated on the relevant brochure page. 28. What happens if you are delayed? 28.1 We do not accept liability for delay. For the avoidance of doubt, we shall endeavour to fulfil but do not guarantee:28.1.1 Departure times; 28.1.2 Arrival times; 28.1.3 Pick up times; 28.1.4 Drop-off times; or 28.1.5 Connections. 28.2 Your travel insurance may cover you for expenses caused by some delays. 28.3 In addition where you are delayed for more than 12 hours in any 24 hour period we will seek to minimise any discomfort and where possible, arrange for refreshments, meals and accommodation. 29. Do I need to take out travel insurance? 29.1 We strongly advise all our customers to take out travel insurance to cover medical and repatriation costs, personal injury, loss of baggage and cancellation

31. Special/Additional needs 31.1 Please note hotels may not provide adequate facilities for guests with mobility problems or who suffer from other disabilities. 31.2 Whether the holiday is within the UK or overseas you are required to notify us before you book, and to confirm in writing, if you or any member of your party has special needs or suffers from any disability (see Clause 21 above). We are keen to plan arrangements for your holiday so that special needs and requests can be accommodated as far as possible. 31.3 If you will need assistance or special facilities in the hotel, or may have difficulties in taking part in excursions, embarking or disembarking or travelling on the coach or other means of transport you, must let us know at the time of your booking. 31.4 Not all the holidays in this brochure may be suitable for you. We want you to enjoy your holiday and will try to help you select an appropriate trip. 31.5 If you need advice or further information either you or your booking agent should contact us. 31.6 However, we cannot be held responsible whether for disappointment, distress or otherwise should you decide to travel and then find the holiday itinerary unsuitable for your own personal mobility. 32. Special/Additional requests 32.1 If you or anyone on your booking has a special request (including dietary requirements) please tell us in writing before booking, or as soon as you are medically advised, and send us a copy of the diet. 32.2 We will notify the hotel or hotels on your holiday. 32.3 However please note that some hotels may not have facilities to cope with special diets and we cannot be held liable for their failure to do so. 32.4 Where we think that a hotel is likely to be unable to cope with a special diet, we will tell you prior to your booking confirmation being issued so that you can exercise your right to cancel your holiday booking without charge. 32.5 Any extra costs incurred must be paid to the hotel by you prior to departure from the hotel. 32.6 You should also detail any other requests, for example, low floor rooms, showers as opposed to bath, particular rooms or locations on the special requests section of the booking form or on your internet booking form. 32.7 For any booking made by telephone, you must confirm to us in writing the special request. 32.8 We will pass your request to the relevant supplier but this does not necessarily mean that your request will be fulfilled. 32.9 If a request can be fulfilled you may incur an extra charge payable either to us or direct to the hotel. 32.10 Please note that requests cannot be guaranteed unless we confirm on your booking confirmation that this is guaranteed. w33. Single Occupancy 33.1 Single occupancy of rooms when available may be subject to a supplementary charge and this will be shown on the brochure page. 33.2 Although some tours featured in our brochures have no single supplement, spaces are limited and therefore sell quickly. 33.3 However, additional single rooms may be requested but will be subject to availability and a charge made by the hotel. 34. Entertainment Some of our hotels arrange additional entertainment. Where this is part of the holiday details are given on the respective brochure page. Where it is not specified it may still be available but is at the discretion of the hotel and is not guaranteed. It may be withdrawn if there is a lack of demand or for operational reasons. 35.
