Regrettably however, in the event that we have to cancel the holiday for any reason, we are unable to refund any privately purchased insurance.

Your Holiday Hotels Our hotels are carefully chosen. Please advise of any special requests such as a low floor room or particular room request at time of booking. If you have special dietary requirements, we also need to know at the time of booking so that we can pass the information to the hotel.

Your confirmed pick up time will be sent to you in your final travel pack, which you shall receive in the post 7 days prior to your holiday.

Flexible Booking Policy Deposits can be transferred to another holiday completely free of charge at any time before the final payment date.

Covid-19 Assurance If you have to miss your holiday due to having the symptoms of Covid-19 or being required to self-isolate, then your holiday will be refunded, less an admin charge of just £50 per person.
