So many seasoned travellers today no longer want a standard package holiday, with this in mind our holidays are designed so you can put together your own itinerary from the brochure. All the tours, car hire, cruises, excursions and accommodation arrangements are featured exclusive of the transatlantic flights so that you can easily work out the price of your holiday. All you have to do is add together the cost of the different components and your flight. Air fares change so regularly that it is always best to check with us for the lowest price. If you need help at anytime or if what you want is not in our brochure, then our ‘Tailor-made Team’ is here to help.

Planning Your Holiday... Build your own holiday the easy way with Travelpack STEP ONE Select the airline that you wish to travel with, use the flight prices below as a guide, they include airport taxes and current fuel surcharges. You will need to check with us at the time of booking for the final price, which may be lower.

STEP TWO Select the type of holiday you want, either an Escorted Tour, Rail Tour, a Self/Drive Tour, a cruise to Alaska, a city break or your own tailor-made itinerary. Consult the contents of the brochure for details of the wide choice of ground arrangements in Canada.

STEP THREE TOURING HOLIDAYS Prices are shown per person and for Escorted Tours and Rail Tours the price of the tour is shown on the page so just add the flight price on this page. You do have some extra items you can add on such as pre or post tour accommodation; this is shown on the page or in our accommodation section. For those who want assistance and transfers on arrival and departure the price of these is again shown on the page. All you need to do now is add the cost of these to your flight price. SELF/DRIVE PRE-PLANNED TOURS Prices are shown per person for the tour and are shown on the page. We have not included the cost of the car because we believe you have the right to choose the size of your car, for example if there are just two of you, you may want a compact car or a family will want a large car or a Minivan so we have featured the car prices separately on pages 40 - 41. The car prices are featured per car, not per person. Add these two items to your flight price and you are on your way. On most of the tours you can Flex the tour by adding in extra nights at places you want to spend more time.

stop press!

ALASKA CRUISES These depart from either Vancouver or Seattle for 8 days/ 7 nights. Prices are shown per person on pages 24 27 so you can either add on a cruise to your Tour or just take the cruise on its own. You can add on hotel stays before or after the tour/cruise to make a longer holiday. Just add the flight price. MULTI-CENTRE HOLIDAYS OR TAILOR-MADE FLY/DRIVE HOLIDAYS Once you have selected your itinerary just go to our Independent Traveller section for accommodation lead in prices. The prices are shown per ROOM per night; just add the number of nights you need in each location. If you need a car please see pages 40 41 and add the price to the number of night’s accommodation plus your airfare and you have the independent holiday of your choice. You can also add on Resort stays or adventure activities to complete the package. WEEKEND BREAKS The major cities in Canada and the USA are great for a weekend away so all you have to do is select the city, choose your hotel, decide if you want transfers, and add your choices together then just add your flight price.

STEP FOUR Go on Holiday and have a great time! FLIGHTS - YOUR FIRST STEP The first step to a successful holiday is to book the right flights that suit your needs and with Travelpack you have fourteen Airlines to choose from. All of our Airline partners provide the service you would expect from a world-class schedule carrier with daily services to most destinations. We offer both schedule airlines and charter airlines to many destinations from London/Heathrow, London/Gatwick, Manchester, Edinburgh, Bristol, Belfast and Glasgow but we also offer flights from London, Manchester, Birmingham, Belfast, Edinburgh and Glasgow via a US gateway such as New York, Newark, Pittsburgh, Philadelphia, Atlanta, Chicago, Washington DC, Seattle, Calgary, Vancouver, Toronto, Montreal and many more. You can break your journey to make a two-centre holiday in one of these gateways. We can give you full information when you book your flights, just give us a call for help and advice and one of our consultants will be more than pleased to assist you.

UPGRADE YOUR FLIGHT One of the other benefits of travelling on a schedule carrier is that you have the choice of booking a higher class of travel such as Premier Economy Class, Business Class, or First Class. AIRFARES Here we show sample return economy class airfares that include Airport Taxes, Airport Fees, Fuel Surcharges and Passenger Service Charges. When comparing prices you should take this into account, as the taxes are an average of £220. The sample airfares are actual airfares that are current at the time of printing this brochure and they are special fares that can only be booked with tours, car hire, accommodation or other ground arrangements.

Your Kind of Night Out Take in a movie or stay out late - nightclubs and casinos are open into the small hours. If you’re travelling with kids or teenage children, no problem. They’ll be entertained free of charge up to 10pm. (Sitting arrangements after 10pm can be arranged but these are for group sittings and a nominal cover charge will apply.

The Independent Traveller North America represents a vast and ever changing challenge and many visitors are uncertain where to start planning their accommodation. The solution is to prebook all your hotel accommodation in advance. This is most important during the summer months in the National Parks, major tourist areas and cities where accommodation is at a premium. Travelpack has been able to negotiate preferred rates at a variety of hotels and ranches across North America and we are able to pass these savings onto you. Over the next 130 pages we have featured hotels, private homes, resorts, ranches, activities and ferry details for you to build your own itinerary. We have also featured Car hire (see pages 40 & 41), Motor Homes (see pages 42 & 43) and rail across Canada (see pages 19-23). We have tried to feature some of the better known properties from our vast inventory of classic and unique properties across North America. We have also, where possible, provided reference to location, amenities, food and beverage outlets, sports facilities and activities, if however your chosen accommodation is not featured just give us a call on 08444 930 401/2 where we will be only too happy to assist you. THE RATES INCLUDE WHERE APPLICABLE: • Hotel accommodation as specified • Hotel Sales Tax • State Taxes, subject to change • Meals where specified CHECK IN/OUT Rooms are normally available at 3pm and must be vacated on the day of departure at 11am, this varies. If you are going to arrive after 4pm you should ring the hotel or your room may be released and you will be charged a ‘no show’ fee, usually one night’s accommodation. TWIN/DOUBLE ROOMS Rooms normally have a double bed you can request a twin room which can range from two double beds (known as a double/double room) or two single beds, which is normally the case in big cities like New York where the rooms tend to be smaller. A double room is a room with one double bed ranging from a Queen sized bed to a King size bed. If you have a preference you need to advise us at the time of booking which room type you require so we can request this from the hotel.

TRIPLE/QUAD ROOMS Triple and quad room rate is based on sharing the existing bed/s in the room. It is not a room with 3 or 4 beds. At some hotels, a third/fourth bed (rollaway) may be available, subject to room size, for an additional cost payable direct to the hotel.

TAILOR-MADE ITINERARIES Our Tailor-made department will be only too happy in assisting you with any queries you may have with your chosen property or resort that is not featured within this brochure. In addition they will also be happy in assisting you with building your own itinerary geared to your own particular requirements.

Vehicle Hire: Cruise America Motorhomes

Motorhome Hire The Freedom of The Open Road There is nothing like the freedom of the open road if you are in a vehicle that has high and wide windows! And that’s exactly what you get with a ‘Recreational Vehicle’ (RV) – everyone can see over hedges to the near or distant landscape. So whatever your choice of touring destination, the family will enjoy it together. Here at Travelpack we have a host of routing suggestions leaving from 29 cities across the USA and Canada – and Alaska as well. We work exclusively with Cruise America & Cruise Canada, the largest motorhome rental company in the world with 36 years experience of providing holidays for visitors from around the globe.

Requirements to rent and drive Even if you are not old enough to rent a car without horrendous ‘Under 25’ surcharges, so long as you are over 21 years of age and have a full and valid drivers license, there is no reason why you cannot rent an ‘RV”! And there are no surcharges either! We also have no restriction on the number of drivers, and no extra driver fee, though all must be present at pick up and all must sign the rental contract and agree to abide by its Terms & Conditions. First night hotel Except in Albuquerque, Boston and Halifax where you can overnight in your vehicle at the KOA campground where the rental office is located, you must spend your first night in a hotel. Rental Stations Open Every day except for Sundays and National Holidays. One-way rentals It is possible to pick up in one city and return in another on payment of a ‘one way rental’ fee.

Vehicle Collection/Return Normal collection is in the afternoon with return on the last day by 11am. A telephone call to the rental office in the morning will tell you what time to be there to pick up your vehicle. Why not get away sooner and have transfers included by booking the early Bird departure special. Security Deposit A deposit of $500 (C$ 500), payable by credit card, is collected when you pick up your vehicle. Provided the vehicle is returned clean and undamaged, this will be refunded to your credit card less any extra mileage charges.

motorhome with a member of staff. You should ask any questions about things you are uncertain of at this time. Please also check that you have everything on board that should be there (kits etc) and that you are happy with the vehicle. Insurance • Full ‘Peace of Mind’ insurance is INCLUDED; we call it that because we want you to be comfortable and relaxed knowing that you have $1 million Supplemental Liability Insurance (SLI) which raises the State or Provincial minimal limits. You also have comprehensive coverage for any vehicle damage with the exception of an excess of $500 – just like the excess you probably have on your family car insurance. When you sign the official Rental Contract at pick up, you are signing to say you will abide by the Terms and Conditions of that contract. Therefore, if for any reason you are NOT doing that when damage or mechanical breakdown occurs, all insurances will automatically be invalidated.

www.travelpack.com/canada

• Taxes – All taxes on things you pre-pay to Travelpack are included. Items you pay for locally (maybe kits, excess mileage etc) will attract tax at the local rate. WHERE DO WE STAY OVERNIGHT? If you are not sure where to stay in your home with wheels, we can assure you there are over 16,000 campgrounds in North America so finding somewhere to stay is not difficult except in peak Season, when it may be a good idea to pre book. Our overnight stays are based on KOA Campgrounds www.koa.com for a copy of the KOA Tour book and Directory call 01444 233289.

Vehicle Hire: Cruise America Motorhomes

What Vehicle to Choose?

How The Pricing Works

All Cruise America and Cruise Canada vehicles have what is known as a ‘C’ Body – with a cab-over double bed. During 36 years of working with customers renting motorhomes, most have said they find these much easier to drive that the cumbersome ‘A’ Body vehicles.

The flexible pricing system (Flexrate) developed by Cruise America follows the same lines as the low-cost airlines we have here in Britain. The earlier you book, the more availability there is of seats (or in our case, motorhomes!) and therefore the price is cheaper. It of course follows that the closer to your departure date you book the less likely you are to get the best ‘deal’. Because of this people are booking earlier and earlier each year so, BOOK EARLY is the rule here. Be sure to look at ALL vehicle prices because you may find that a larger vehicle is available at a cheaper price than a small one.

All are built for the rental market with strong seat coverings, vinyl floors, secure catches and everything necessary to ensure little damage can be done to impair your rental experience. All vehicles are fitted with seat belts for the number of persons they carry (belts are normally around the table in the rear).

Minimum rental period The minimum rental period for your Cruise America Motorhome is seven nights.

Please Note: Because Cruise America and Canada buys from more than one manufacturer, floor-plans you see in this or any other brochure are used as an example only. Generator All vehicles in the USA, and the C19 and C30 in Canada, are fitted with a petrol generator that allows the systems to work even if the motorhome is not linked to local electricity. So a generator is NOT required unless you in a National or State Park campground where there is no electrical supply to your motorhome. If you do need to use it, $3 per running hour is metered and charged at the end of rental.

More information We will be sending you the leaflet ‘Essential Information for Motorhome Renters’ along with your final paperwork. Its important things that you need to know before you travel so please read it before you leave home. 24 hour Travellers Assistance Cruise America’s call centre is manned 24/7 so if you have any problems at all please call the freephone number that is provided with your documents.

On-Board features All vehicles have automatic transmission, power steering and cruise control; a refrigerator which can be powered by either electricity or propane gas; a hob powered by propane gas and a microwave; a shower and flush toilet; dash and roof air-conditioning to keep you cool; a furnace for warming you up and heating the water; and finally an AM/FM radio.

CANADA - MOTORHOME PRICES

Your final choice When choosing the right vehicle for your party always try and go for one slightly larger than you think you may need. With Cruise America’s pricing plan, this may even be CHEAPER than the one you first thought of!

Some hotels can provide an extra foldaway bed at an additional charge which will be paid locally. • Car Parking at Hotels: Car parking at hotels is not always free especially in Resorts or Cities please ask at the time of booking. • Resort Fess at Hotels: This is an amount that is required by the hotel and payable directly to the hotel these can range from between $5 to $25 per room per day ask for details when booking. • Ancillary Services: These services offered on Tours, Cruises, or by Car hire, Motor-home companies are available to purchase from location directly – payable locally • Children: Discounts for children differ for airlines, hotels and tours. Quotations are available on request, if not stated in the brochure. • Travel by Air: All holidays in this brochure, unless otherwise stated, are based upon scheduled flights operated by airlines who are members of IATA, the International Air Transport Association. All passengers travel under the conditions of carriage of the airline concerned, details of which are printed on their ticket. As an alternative you may be offered a Charter flight. The airline schedules shown here are

those known at the time of going to press and therefore subject to change. Where we show a fare for a flight from one point to another this does not indicate that this is a direct or non stop service. We are not always in a position to confirm the airline(s), aircraft type(s) and airport(s) of destination which will be used in connection with your chosen holiday arrangements. Where this information is provided at any stage, it is subject to change. Any such change will not be a ‘significant’ change entitling you to cancel or change to other holiday arrangements without paying our normal charges. The flight timings given in this brochure and on booking are for guidance only and are subject to change. Up-to-date flight times (which are also subject to change) will be shown on your ticket. Please ensure you check them immediately upon receipt for this information. This brochure is our responsibility and in no way commits any of the airlines mentioned in it. • Meals: Competition among restaurants and diners is fierce and prices keen and competitive. Apart from some of our more deluxe tours, we do not tie clients down to set meals. Eat as you please from as little as £7 for a basic coffee shop breakfast. • Tipping: Service charges are not normally included in restaurant bar bills. You are expected to tip between 10% and 15%. Luggage carrying, room service, bar bills, maid service also requires a small tip at your discretion. • Security Deposits Self Catering Homes/Villas: Please note that a security deposit is payable by credit card or in cash for hotels and some of the self catering type accommodation (villas & homes) shown within the brochure. This deposit is to cover accidental damage etc., and is fully refundable, normally within one month of departure. • Passports, Visas, Health: Please see Booking Conditions number 7. • Free Luggage Allowance: On scheduled Airlines the allowance can vary as regulations change regularly, two pieces per passenger weighing up to 50lbs (23Kg) each. A small bag is allowed as hand luggage but you should check with the individual airline. On charter flights these vary please contact us for details. A number of airlines now charge £25 per bag for the second bag check at the time of booking. • Validity of Tickets: Return tickets are valid only for the dates and routing specified thereon unless authorised in writing by the Company or an air carrier. No liability can be accepted by the Company for missed connections due to weather, mechanical failure or otherwise. Should you miss your outward or homeward flight you may be asked to purchase a ticket for the first available date. The carrier may, however, entirely at their discretion, carry you on the next available flight without extra charge. • Complimentary Features: All complimentary bonus features provided by hotels are subject to change without notice. Complimentary features are non-refundable in the event the hotel fails to provide any features published which are not used. • Travel Documents: Tickets and travel documents are normally issued 10 to 14 days prior to departure. Please check timings very carefully. We use the 24-hour clock system. It is possible that some timing have been changed since publication of the brochure and the issue of the confirmation/invoice. Where late bookings/payments are involved (i.e. within two weeks of travel) a fee may be charged where special methods of despatch are required to guarantee document delivery. • Airport/Government Taxes/Fuel Surcharges: If you are purchasing flight only or a flight plus other ground arrangements, the taxes and fuel surcharges will be quoted separately and added to your invoice. Please note that some airport taxes cannot be paid with your ticket but are paid locally at the point of onward or return travel. Such a tax is the Edmonton Improvement Fee C$10 or the Montréal Improvement Fee C$10, subject to change. All Airport/Government taxes and fuel surcharges are subject to change and unfortunately we will have to invoice you for any increases.

• Local Environment: The development of a country must continue around the tourist trade. This means that in some resorts or cities there can be continual building work. We can not anticipate when construction work is likely to happen. Noise may be generated by traffic, wildlife or any local events. Please remember that your holiday destination is the home of a community for whom working and living must continue. • Complaints: Complaints must be brought to the attention of the relevant supplier and our local representative at the time. It is not reasonable to pursue a complaint without giving the supplier the opportunity to rectify the problem when it occurs. If you still remain dissatisfied you must notify us in writing within 28 days of return. We regret we cannot accept liability in respect of any complaint or claims which are not notified to us in accordance with this clause. • Proposed Consumer Levy: At time of printing, we have been advised of the possibility that a consumer levy may be introduced in order to provide additional financial protection for holiday and travel arrangements. Any such levy is likely to be in the region of £1.00 or £2.00 per person. If a levy is introduced, we reserve the right to pass it on in full in respect of all bookings. The surcharge provisions set out in clause 2 ‘Your Holiday Price’ will not apply in this situation. • Security Surcharge: Most airlines are now imposing a charge for extra security at airports and on flights. This surcharge will be around £2.50 but is subject to change. • Data Protection: Please be assured that we have measures in place to protect the personal booking information held by us. This information will be passed on to the principal and to the relevant suppliers for your travel arrangements. The information may also be provided to public authorities such as customs or immigration if required by them, or as required by law. If you travel outside the European Economic Area, controls on data protection may not be as strong as the legal requirements in this country. We will only pass your information on to persons responsible for your travel arrangements. This applies to any sensitive information that you give to us, such as details of disabilities or dietary/religious requirements. If we cannot pass on this information to the relevant suppliers, whether within the EEA or not, we will be unable to provide you’re booking. In making this booking, you consent to this information being passed onto the relevant persons. Full details of our data protection policy are available upon request. The Foreign & Commonwealth office produces up-to-date travel information to help British travellers make informed decisions about travelling abroad. For further information please visit www.fco.gov.uk/knowbeforeyougo or telephone 0870 606 0290. Alternatively you can contact ABTA’s Travel Information line on 0901 201 5050 (calls are charged at around 50 pence per minute). • Prices and brochure accuracy – changes and errors: Please note the holiday information and prices shown in this brochure may have changed by the time you come to book your holiday. Whilst every effort is made to ensure accuracy of the brochure and prices at the time of printing, regrettably errors do occasional occur. You must therefore ensure you check all details of your chosen holiday (including the price) with us (directly of through your Travel Agent) at the time of booking.

We do not check alternative policies. It is your responsibility to ensure you and all members of your party take out insurance which is sufficient for your particular needs and to arrange additional cover if necessary. Please read your policy before departure and take it with you on holiday. 3. You Pay the Balance The balance of your holiday cost must be received by us at least 9 weeks or 10 weeks if you book a Charter Flight prior to your departure via the office at which you made your booking.

These may be higher than those set out below. Where different cancellation charges apply to your chosen arrangements, we will advise you of these at the time of booking. Depending on the reason for your cancellation you may be able to reclaim these cancellation charges (less any applicable excess) under the terms of your Insurance policy.

(2) Flight only bookings are subject to the airlines cancellation charges plus an administration fee of £25 per person. (3) Hotel Accommodation Only (NOT Self/Drive itineraries, these are Packages) of up to 7 days prior to departure a cancellation fees of £50 or two night’s accommodation whichever is greater. Some hotels require higher cancellation charges; check at the time of booking. Note: There is no refund on any services/provisions on used or partially used Car Hire, Motor Homes, Hotel Accommodation, transfers, sightseeing tours, excisions, Self/Drive tours, Escorted Tours, cruises or Rail tours booked on the itinerary that are not used in full or part for any reason are fully non refundable. In these circumstances, it is Travelpack’s booking conditions that prevail and not those or the advise of the supplier of the services/provisions/accommodation/tours/transfers or alike whether they charge for the unused aspects of the itinerary or not. A £50 administration fee will also be levied on any unused hotel/car voucher. 6. If You Have A Complaint If you have a complaint during your holiday please inform the courier/representative and the supplier of the service(s) in question immediately who will do his/her best to help you straight away. If the matter cannot be resolved to your satisfaction you must notify us in writing giving us full details within 28 days of the completion of your holiday and this must be to Travelpack at the address shown on the Booking Form. You must quote your booking reference number, holiday number and departure date. If you fail to follow the simple complaints procedure, your right to claim any compensation you may otherwise have been entitled to may be affected or even lost as a result. 7. Other Items (a) You are responsible for ensuring that you are at the correct departure point at the correct time and we cannot be liable for any loss or expense suffered if you are not. As soon as you receive your confirmation invoice and tickets, please check the details carefully and inform us immediately if any information which appears on the confirmation or any other document appears to be incorrect, as it may not be possible to make changes later. We regret that we cannot accept liability if we are not notified of any inaccuracies in any document within fourteen days of our sending it out (five days for tickets). We will do our best to rectify any mistake notified to us outside these time limits but you must meet any costs involved in doing so. The only exception to this requirement to meet any costs is where we made the mistake and there is good reason why you did not tell us about it within these time limits. (b) We reserve the right to refuse a booking or terminate your holiday in the event of unreasonable conduct which in the opinion of ourselves or some other person in authority causing or is likely to cause damage, distress, danger or annoyance to other clients, employees or any third party or damage to property. In the event of such termination our responsibilities toward the person concerned and their holiday arrangements will immediately cease. Full cancellation charges will apply and we will be under no obligation to make any refund, pay any compensation or meet any expenses or losses you or that person incur as a result. When you book with us, you accept responsibility for any damage or loss caused by you or any member of your party. Full payment for any such damage or loss must be paid direct at the time to the accommodation owner or manager or other supplier. If you fail to do so, you will be responsible for meeting any claims subsequently made against us (together with our own and the other party’s full legal costs) as a result of your actions. (c) PASSPORTS & VISAS British Citizens require a full ten year British passport with a least 6 months validity after return. A Visitor’s passport is NOT accepted. For passports issued after the 5th October 1998 Persons less than 16 years cannot travel on their parent’s passports and are required to have their own individual passport. If you or any member of your party is not a British citizen or holds a non-British passport, you must check passport and visa requirements with the Embassy or Consulate of the country (ies) to or through which you are intending to travel. It is your responsibility to ensure that you are in the possession of the correct travel documents. Please check the requirements at the time of booking and good time before departure. As from October 1st 2003, all visitors intending to travel to or via the USA will be required to present a machine Readable passport (MRP). Those travelling without a MRP will need to apply for a valid USA entry visa. From the 27th October 2005 all passports must have a digital photo. This applies to both adults and children. From the 30th of September 2004, under the US VISIT programme all travellers will be digitally photographed and have their index finger digitally scanned on arrival at the passport control. Currently, citizens of Visit Waiver Programme (VWP) countries complete a written Form I-94W providing basic biographical, travel, and eligibility information while en-route to the U.S. With ESTA, VWP travellers will now have to provide this information online prior to departure for the U.S https://esta.cbp.dhs.gov applications must be submitted as soon as an applicant begins planning U.S.-bound travel, and not less than 72 hours prior to travel. (d) HEALTH - Requirements are subject to change and passengers are reminded that they are responsible for complying with entry and health requirements of all countries they intend to visit. A Department of Health leaflet (Ref -T3) ‘A Traveller’s Guide to Health’ is available on request or may be obtained free from your Doctor, Travel Agent or by phoning 0870 155 5455. Requirements may of course change and all clients must check the up to date position in good time before departure. We regret we cannot accept liability if you are refused entry onto any transport or into any country due to failure on your part to carry the correct documentation. If failure to have any necessary travel or other documents results in fines, surcharges or other financial penalty being imposed on us, you will be responsible for reimbursing us accordingly

OUR PROMISE TO YOU 1. We Reserve Your Holiday A binding contract between us comes into existence when your travel agent confirms your booking to us over the telephone, via viewdata or the Internet or in all other cases when we despatch our confirmation invoice. We both agree that any dispute, claim or other matter which arises out of or in connection with your contract or holiday will be dealt with by the Courts of England and Wales only (unless you opt for arbitration under Clause 6 of “Our Promise to You”) except if you live in Scotland or Northern Ireland in which case proceedings may be brought in the Courts of your home country. If proceedings are brought in Scotland or Northern Ireland, you may choose to have your contract governed by the law of Scotland/Northern Ireland as applicable. 2. Your Holiday Price Holiday prices include all coach travel, accommodation and meals as specified in the holiday description. As of the 25th September 2006 the Federal Government of Canada announced the withdrawal of the Goods and Services Tax (GST) Visitor Rebate Programme. The current rate in Nova Scotia, New Brunswick, Newfoundland & Labrador is 14%, in all other provinces of Canada the GST is 6% which is included in prices set out in this brochure. This means that from 31 March 2007 foreign travellers to Canada no longer receive a discount of 100% of this tax on holidays that include accommodation only. On certain packages such as Escorted tours, Rail Tours, Self/Drive Tours (excluding cars but including a ground product such as a Ferry) 50% rebate is applied. We will claim this rebate for you and when signing the booking form you waive your personal right to claim a GST rebate applicable to your holiday package and assign such entitlement to us as the tour operator. This will then enable us to reclaim the tax paid by us on your behalf and no further refunds will be due to you. Reservations can only be accepted on this express understanding. Unless specifically indicated in the holiday itinerary or description contained in this brochure, entrance fees, guide fees, city sightseeing tours and optional excursions are not included in the holiday cost. CHANGES TO PRICES We reserve the right to increase or decrease the prices of unsold holiday arrangements and correct errors at anytime. PACKAGES ONLY Once the price of your chosen holiday has been confirmed at the time of booking then, subject to the correction of errors, we will only increase or decrease the price in the following circumstances. Price increases or decreases after booking will be passed on by way of a surcharge or refund. A surcharge or refund (as applicable) will be payable, subject to the conditions set out in this clause, if transportation costs or dues, taxes or fees payable for services such as increases/decreases to fuel prices, or if you stay in a location that increases its rates for special events, government imposed fees, landing taxes or embarkation or disembarkation fees at ports or airports increase or decrease. Or our costs increase or decrease as a result of any adverse or favourable changes in the exchange rates, which have been used to calculate the cost of your holiday. Even in the above cases we will absorb increases up to a total amount equivalent to 2% of the holiday price, which excludes insurance premiums, and any amendment charges. Only amounts in excess of this 2% will be surcharged. If this means paying more than 10% of the holiday price (excluding insurance premiums and amendment charges) you will be entitled to cancel your holiday and receive a full refund of all money paid to us except for any premium for holiday insurance and amendment charges or alternatively purchase an alternative holiday from us as referred to in clause 3 below (“If we change or cancel your holiday”.) We will also pay you compensation as detailed in and in accordance with the conditions set out in clause 3 below. Should you decide to cancel or purchase another holiday from us because of this you must exercise your right to do so within 14 days from the issue date printed on the invoice. Please note a refund will only be payable if the decrease in our costs exceeds 2% as set out above. Where a refund is due we will pay you the full amount of the decrease in our costs. We promise not to levy a surcharge within 30 days of departure. FLIGHT ONLY BOOKINGS Flight only bookings are subject to the terms and conditions of the airline that you are travelling with. We reserve the right at any time before departure to pass on any increase in cost levied by the airlines. This may be increased taxes, fuel cost, government imposed fees, any adverse or favourable changes in the exchange rates. ALL HOLIDAYS All prices printed in this brochure are based on the exchange rate and other known costs as at the 24th October 2008, in the former case as set out below. £1=$1.58 US Dollars. £1=$2.01 Canadian Dollars, We reserve the right to correct errors in both advertised and confirmed prices. We will do so as soon as we become aware of the error. Please note changes and errors occasionally occur. You must check the price of your chosen holiday at the time of booking. 3. If We Change or Cancel Your Holiday We start planning the holidays we offer many months in advance. Occasionally, we have to make changes to, and correct errors in, the brochure and other details both, before and after bookings have been confirmed and cancel confirmed bookings. Whilst we always endeavour to avoid changes and cancellations, we must reserve the right to do so. However, we promise we will only cancel your confirmed booking 8 weeks or less before departure where you have failed to comply with any requirement of these booking conditions entitling us to cancel (such as paying on time) or where we are forced to do so as a result of circumstances outside our control/”force majeure” as defined in clause 4 below. We will not cancel after this date for any other reason. Most changes are minor. Occasionally, we have to make a “significant change”. “Significant changes” means the following changes when made before departure; a change of accommodation to that of a lower official classification or standard for the whole or a major part of the time you are away, a change of accommodation area for the whole or a major part of the time you are away, a change of outward departure time or overall length of time you are away of twelve or more hours, a change in outward departure airport to one that is more inconvenient for you (and except as between Gatwick and Heathrow), in the case of tours, a significant change of itinerary missing out one or more major destination substantially or altogether. Please note: A change of or reduction in quality of one or more single overnight hotels or a change of commentary from English only to multilingual which includes English on touring and part touring holidays will not be a significant change. This and all other changes are minor changes. If we have to make a significant change or cancel, we will tell you or your travel agent as soon as is reasonably possible. If there is time to do so before departure, we will offer you the choice of the following options: (a) Accepting the changed arrangements. (b) Purchasing another holiday from us. We will offer you at least one alternative holiday of equivalent or higher standard providing one is available for which you will not be asked to pay any more than the price of the original holiday. If this holiday is in fact less expensive than the original one, we will refund the price difference. If you do not wish to accept the alternative holiday we specifically offer you, you may choose any of our other available holidays. You must pay the applicable price of any such holiday. This will mean you’re paying more if it is more expensive or receiving a refund if it is less expensive. (c) In the case of cancelling or accepting the cancellation in which case you will receive a full refund of all monies you have paid to us. If we have to notify you of a significant change or cancel before departure, we will, as a minimum, where compensation is due pay you the compensation payments set out in the table below depending on the circumstances and when the significant change or cancellation is notified to you. Compensation will not be payable and no liability beyond offering the above mentioned choices can be accepted where (1) we are forced to make a change or cancel as a result of unusual and unforeseeable circumstances beyond our control, the consequences of which we could not have avoided even with all due care which include but are not limited to those amounting to “force majeure” (see clause 4 below) or (2) We have to cancel because the minimum number of bookings necessary for us to operate your holiday has not been reached - in this case we will notify you no less than 8 weeks before your scheduled departure date. No compensation will be payable if we cancel as a result of your failure to comply with any requirement of these booking conditions entitling us to cancel (such as paying on time). Period before departure in which significant Compensation payable change or cancellation is notified to you per person Over 29 days £10 28-15 days £15 14-8 days £20 7-0 days £25 In all cases, our liability for significant changes and cancellations is limited to offering you the above mentioned options and, where applicable, compensation payments. We regret we cannot pay any expenses, costs or losses incurred by you as a result of any change or cancellation. No compensation is payable for minor changes. A minor change is any change which, taking account of the information you have given us at the time of booking or which we can reasonably be expected to know as a tour operator, we could not reasonably expect to have a significant effect on your confirmed holiday. Very rarely, we may be forced by “force majeure” (see clause 4 below) to change or terminate your holiday after departure but before the scheduled end of your time away. This is extremely unlikely but if this situation does occur, we regret we will be unable to make any refunds (unless we obtain any refunds from our suppliers), pay you any compensation or meet any costs or expenses you incur as a result. In accordance with EU Regulation 2111/2005 we are required to advise you of the actual carrier operating your flight/connecting flight/transfer. We do this by listing carriers to be used or likely to be used as follows: American Airlines, Air Canada, Air France, Air India, Air Transat, Alitalia, British Airways, British Midland International, Continental Airlines, Delta, Icelandiair, KLM, Kuwait Airlines, Lufthansa, My Travel, North West, SAS, Swiss International, Thomas Cook, United Airlines, US Airways, Virgin Atlantic or Monarch Airlines. Any changes to the actual airline after you have received your tickets will be notified to you as soon as possible and in all cases at check-in or at the boarding gate. Such a change is deemed to be a minor change. Other examples of minor changes include alteration of your outward/return flights by less than 12 hours, changes to aircraft type, change of accommodation to another of the same standard. 4. Force Majeure Except where otherwise expressly stated in these booking conditions, we regret we cannot accept liability or pay any compensation where the performance or prompt performance of our contractual obligations is prevented or affected by or you otherwise suffer any damage or loss (as more fully described in clause 6(1) below) as a result of “force majeure”. In these Booking Conditions, “force majeure” means any event which we or the supplier of the service(s) in question could not, even with all due care, foresee or avoid. Such events may include war or threat of war, riot, civil strife, actual or threatened terrorist activity, industrial dispute, natural or nuclear disaster, adverse weather conditions, fire and all similar events outside our control. 5. What Happens To Complaints We can normally agree on amicable settlement of the few complaints we receive. However disputes arising out of or in connection with, this contract which cannot be amicably settled may be referred to arbitration, if you so wish, under a special scheme arranged by ABTA, and administered independently by IDRS, part of the Chartered Institute of Arbitrators. The Scheme provides for a simple and inexpensive method of arbitration on documents alone with restrictive liability on the customer in respect of costs. Full details will be provided on request or can be obtained from the ABTA website (www.abta.com). This Scheme does not apply to claims for an amount greater than £5,000 per person. There is also a limit of £25,000 per booking form. Neither does it apply to claims, which are solely in respect of physical injury or illness or their consequences. The Scheme can however deal with compensation claims, which include an element of minor injury, or illness subject to a limit of £1,000 on the amount the Arbitrator can award per person in respect of this element. The application for Arbitration and Statement of Claim must be received by IDRS within nine months of the date of return from the holiday. Outside this time limit Arbitration under the Scheme may still be available if the company agrees, but the ABTA Code does not require such agreement.

6. Our Liability To You Please note this clause does not apply to any bookings of one type of service only (e.g. flight only, accommodation or car hire only). (1) We promise to make sure that all parts of the holiday we have agreed to arrange, perform or provide as part of our contract with you are performed or provided with reasonable skill and care. We will accept responsibility if any death, personal injury, failure or deficiency of your holiday arrangements is caused by any fault of ours, or our agents or suppliers. When we talk about “fault” above, this means failure by ourselves or our agents or suppliers (as applicable) to use reasonable skill and care in performing or providing the service in question. Please note it is your responsibility to show that reasonable skill and care has not been used if you wish to make a claim. We will not be responsible for any injury, illness, death, loss (for example loss of enjoyment), damage, expense, cost or other sum or claim of any description whatsoever which results from any of the following: (a) The fault of the person(s) affected or any member(s) of their party or (b) The fault of a third party not connected with the provision of your holiday which we could not have predicted or avoided or (c) An event or circumstance which we or the supplier of the service(s) in question could not have predicted or avoided even after taking all reasonable care (see clause 4 above). (d) The fault of anyone who is not carrying out work for us (generally or in particular) at the time. In addition, we will not be responsible where you do not enjoy your holiday or suffer any problems because of a reason you did not tell us about when you booked your holiday or where any problems you suffer did not result from any breach of our contract or other fault of ourselves or, where we were responsible for them, our suppliers or agents or where any losses, expenses, costs or other sum you have suffered relate to any business. Please note we cannot accept responsibility for any services, which do not form part of our contract. This includes, for example, any additional services or facilities, which your hotel or any other supplier agrees to provide for you where the services or facilities are not advertised in our brochure and we have not agreed to arrange them. (2) The promises we make to you about the services we have agreed to provide or arrange as part of our contract - and the laws and regulations of the country in which your claim or complaint occurred will be used as the basis for deciding whether the services in question had been properly provided. If the particular services which gave rise to the claim or complaint complied with local laws and regulations applicable to those services at the time, the services will be treated as having been properly provided. This will be the case even if the services did not comply with the laws and regulations of the UK which would have applied had those services been provided in the UK. The exception to this is where the claim or complaint concerns the absence of a safety feature, which might lead a reasonable holidaymaker to refuse to take the holiday in question. (3) We limit the maximum amount we may have to pay you for any and all claims or parts of claims, which do not involve personal injury, illness or death. Except where loss of and/or damage to luggage or personal possessions is concerned or a lower limitation of liability applies to your claim, the maximum amount we will have to pay you for such non personal injury claims if we are found liable to you on any basis is twice the holiday price (excluding insurance premiums and amendment charges) paid by or on behalf of the person(s) affected in total. This maximum amount will only be payable where everything has gone wrong and you have not received any benefit at all from your holiday. Where we are found liable for loss of and/or damage to any luggage or personal possessions (including money), the maximum amount we will have to pay you is £25 per person affected as you are assumed to have taken out adequate insurance at the time of booking. Please also see sub clause 4 below. (4) Where any claim or part of a claim concerns or is based on any travel arrangements (including the process of getting on and off the transport concerned) provided by any air, sea, rail or road carrier or any stay in a hotel, the maximum amount of compensation we will have to pay you will be limited. The most we will have to pay you for that claim or that part of a claim if we are found liable to you on any basis is the most the carrier or hotel keeper concerned would have to pay under the International Convention which applies to the travel arrangements or hotel stay in question (for example, the Warsaw Convention as amended for international travel by air and/or for airlines with an operating licence granted by an EU country, the EU Regulation on Air Carrier Liability for national and international travel by air, the Athens Convention for international travel by sea). When making any payment, we are entitled to deduct any money, which you have received or are entitled to receive from the transport provider or hotelier for the complaint or claim in question. (5).You must provide our insurers and ourselves with all assistance we may reasonably require. If asked to do so, you must transfer to us or our insurers, any rights you have against the supplier or whoever else is responsible for your claim or complaint (if the person concerned is under 18, their parent or guardian must do so). You must also agree to cooperate fully with our insurers and us if our insurers or we want to enforce any rights, which are transferred. (6). In the event of delays we will try to minimise the inconvenience to you so far as is possible, practical and appropriate in the circumstance prevailing at the time. However in the majority of cases the airline will arrange extra meals in the event of delay. Under EU law (Regulation 261/2004) you have rights in some circumstances to refunds and/or compensation from your airline in cases of denied boarding, cancellation or delay to flights. Full details of these rights will be publicised at EU airports and will also be available from airlines. However reimbursement in such cases will not automatically entitle you to a refund of your holiday cost from us. Your right to a refund and/or compensation from us is set out in clause 6. If any payments to you are due from us, any payment made to you by the airline will be deducted from this amount. If your airline does not comply with these rules you should complain to the Air Transport Users’ Council on 020 7240 6061 www.auc.org.uk (7). Please remember that some amenities (e.g. lifts, swimming pools, etc require servicing or cleaning and we cannot therefore guarantee that they are always available. Some services may also be affected by weather conditions and their availability is entirely at the discretion of the provider of the service. Entertainment provided by hotels is frequently subject to demand and its nature and/or frequency may be varied if there is a lack of demand or insufficient number staying in the hotel. (8) Prompt assistance in resort If the contract we have with you is not performed or is improperly performed as a result of failures attributable to a third party unconnected with the provision of the services, or as a result of failures due to unusual and unforeseeable circumstances beyond our control, the consequences of which could not have been avoided even if all due care had been exercised, or an event which we or our suppliers, even with all due care, could not foresee or forestall, and you suffer an injury or other material loss, we will offer you such prompt assistance as is reasonable in the circumstances. 7. Conditions Of Carriage Independent suppliers provide many of the services, which make up your holiday. Those suppliers provide these services in accordance with their own terms and conditions. Some of these terms and conditions may limit or exclude the supplier’s liability to you, usually in accordance with applicable International Conventions (see clause “Our responsibilities” clause (6 (4). Copies of the relevant parts of these terms and conditions are available on request from us or the suppliers concerned. 8. Special Requests and Medical Problems If you have any special requests, you must ensure it is clearly noted on your booking form at the time of booking. Although we will endeavour to pass any reasonable requests on to the relevant supplier, we regret we cannot promise that any request will be complied with unless we have specifically confirmed this in writing. Confirmation that a special request has been noted or passed on to the supplier or the inclusion of the special request on your Confirmation or any other documentation is not confirmation that the request will be met. Unless and until specifically confirmed, all special requests are subject to availability. If you or any member of your party has any medical problem or disability, which may affect your holiday, please, tell us before you confirm your booking so that we can advise as to the suitability of the chosen arrangements. In any event, you must give us full details in writing at the time of booking. If we reasonably feel unable to properly accommodate the particular needs of the person concerned, we must reserve the right to decline their reservation or, if full details are not given at the time of booking, cancel when we become aware of these details. Prices and Brochure Accuracy Please note, the information and prices shown in this brochure may have changed by the time you come to book your holiday. Whilst every effort is made to ensure the accuracy of the brochure and prices at the time of printing, regrettably errors do occasionally occur. You must therefore ensure you check all details of your chosen holiday (including the price) with your travel agent or us at the time of booking. This brochure is our sole responsibility. It is not issued on behalf of and does not commit any independent organisation/carriers whose services are featured in it. Safety standards Please note, it is the requirements and standards of the country, in which any services, which make up your holiday are provided which apply to those services and not those of the UK. As a general rule, these requirements and standards will not be the same as the UK and may sometimes/often be lower. Flights The flight timings given on bookings are for general guidance only and are subject to change. The latest timings will be shown on your confirmation invoice. However, the actual flight times will be those shown on your tickets, which will be despatched to you approximately two weeks before departure. You must accordingly check your tickets very carefully immediately on receipt to ensure you have the correct flight times. It is possible that flight times may be changed even after tickets have been despatched – we will contact you as soon as possible if this occurs. We strongly suggest you reconfirm your flights at least 72 hours prior to departure in the event of any changes. We are not always in a position to confirm the airline, aircraft type and airport of destination, which will be used in connection with any flight included in your holiday. When this information is provided at the time of booking or subsequently, it is subject to change. Any such change will not entitle you to cancel or change to other arrangements without paying our normal charges. Your Financial Protection The Package Travel, Package Holidays and Package Tours Regulations 1992 require us to provide security for the monies that you pay for the package holidays booked from this brochure and for your repatriation in the event of our insolvency. We provide this security by way of a bond held by the Civil Aviation Authority under ATOL number 2866. When you buy an ATOL protected air holiday package and/or flights from us you will receive a Confirmation invoice from us or our authorised agent through which you booked confirming your arrangements and your protection under the Air Travel Organiser’s Licence number 2866. In the unlikely event of our insolvency, the CAA will ensure that you are not stranded abroad and will arrange to refund any money you have paid to us for an advance booking. For further information visit the ATOL website at www.atol.org.uk. Not all holiday or travel services offered and sold by us will be protected by the ATOL scheme. Please ask us to confirm what protection may apply to your booking. If you book arrangements other than a package holiday from this brochure your monies are protected by way of a bond held with ABTA. We are a member of ABTA, membership number N1031. We are obliged to maintain a high standard of service to you by ABTA’s Code of Conduct. We can also offer you an arbitration scheme for the resolution of disputes arising out of, or in connection with this contract. Further information on the Code and arbitration can be found at http://www.abta.com/heretohelp.shtml Excursions - Excursions or other tours that you may choose to book or pay for whilst you are on holiday are not part of your package holiday provided by us. For any excursion or other tour that you book, your contract will be with the operator of the excursion or tour and not with us. We are not responsible for the provision of the excursion or tour or for anything that happens during the course of its provision by the operator.
