Our ‘Door-to-Door’ Service now covers over a million homes!

We offer a very comprehensive ‘Door-to-Door’ home pick-up and drop-off service. This service conveys customers from their home to one of our central joining points where they board one of our coaches to the relevant interchange point.

At the Interchange point we will transfer all luggage, whilst customers board their designated tour coach, meet their Tour Driver and depart on their journey. On the return this procedure is reversed, returning our customers back home, right to their door! We use both our own fleet of minibuses and also taxis from trusted suppliers on ‘Door-to-Door’ services. On tours of five days or more this is FREE of charge to the vast majority of our customers in Central and North Lincolnshire, North Nottinghamshire, South and West Yorkshire, with some outlying areas available at a supplement. On shorter breaks this service, where available, is charged at a supplement. The map on page 6 is a guideline to the areas covered.

Our reservations staff will confirm availability for your postcode at the time of booking plus any additional charges. This service gives you the security of knowing that one of our vehicles or one of our selected partners will collect you from your home address on departure day and return you back to the same address on the last day of your holiday. We guarantee that even if this transport is delayed for any reason, you will not miss your holiday. Please note that there may be several other customers that you share this service with you. In most cases we will take you directly to your tour coach. In some instances though we may collect you from your address and transfer you to one of our feeder coaches which will meet your tour coach at the designated interchange point.

ENGLAND, ISLE OF MAN & THE CHANNEL ISLANDS

Jersey The Channel Islands are a beautiful archipelago, each with their own unique character. Enjoy the hustle and bustle of the capitals, Jersey’s St Helier and Guernsey’s St Peter Port, or head to the smaller islands of Alderney, Sark and Herm, which ooze old world charm.

With its unspoiled landscape and unique blend of British and French influences, Jersey really is a place where you can get away from it all. Relax and enjoy the famed hospitality of its people, and lose yourself in the Island’s winding lanes or on its breathtaking coast. Culture vultures will discover history at every turn, walkers will be captivated by the Island’s stunning natural beauty, and families can relax without a care on pristine beaches. It’s also the ideal place to clear your head,

indulge in some exhilarating outdoor sports, or simply live the life! Located some 100 miles (160 kms) south of mainland Britain, Jersey is the most southerly island of the British Isles. In fact, it’s much closer to France, lying just 14 miles (22 kms) from its coast. Despite its compact size – just 9 miles by 5 miles (14 kms by 8 kms) – Jersey possesses a rich and varied landscape which sends visitors into sensory overload.

Discover the very best of Jersey on one of the many OPTIONAL excursions available to book, directly with the Mayfair Hotel. All Day Island Tour From £20.00 per person

Half Day Island/Coastal Tour From £19.00 per person This extremely popular tour is specially tailored for day or short stay visitors and is the very least you should experience during your stay.

To the South of Wales, Pembrokeshire continues to win awards and accolades for the quality of its coastline and is a haven for swimmers, beachcombers, wildlife-watchers and walkers. Whilst St. David’s is the smallest city in Britain.

The Great Little Trains of Wales are a very special way of seeing some of the best scenery in the British Isles. All are narrow gauge steam railways and some have a history spanning well over 100 years and are worth a visit.

Strewn with vast green open spaces, mountain ranges and majestic coastlines, journey to the ancient Celtic kingdom of Wales, land of castles. Wales is a proud yet very friendly place with a rich history, traditional culture and lots to see and do.

Monday Enjoy a day visiting the stunning Borromeo Islands. Situated on the western side of Lake Maggiore, directly opposite Stresa, the three Borromean Islands lie in a wide gulf surrounded by mountains. The islands take their name from the aristocratic Borromean family, who took ownership of the land in the 16th and 17th centuries. The three Borromean Islands share a pleasant climate, but each offers a very different experience. Isola Bella was completely transformed by its occupants, and its palace and gardens are the epitome of opulence and luxury. In contrast, the Isola dei Pescatori, with its village unchanged by time, offers a fascinating simplicity. Finally, the exotic atmosphere of the lush and tranquil Isola Madre can be credited to the gardens that almost totally cover it. The boat does not stop at Isola Madre. Tuesday Today we enjoy a visit to Lake Orta, one of the smallest Italian Lakes and separated from Lake Maggiore by Mont Mottarone. We will enjoy a visit to Orta San Giulio, one of northern Italy’s best kept secrets and one of its prettiest lakeside towns.

The Centovalli Railway leads across the dizzying heights of viaducts, past deep ravines and thundering waterfalls, through sunlit chestnut forests and fertile vineyards, tunnels and hairpin bends.

TRAVEL INSURANCE IMPORTANT NOTICE

Holiday Insurance includes Insurance Premium Tax (IPT). Significant Exclusions Before you purchase this insurance Wilfreda Beehive/Eagre Coaches is required to bring to your attention a number of important aspects: Policy document: You should read the document carefully. It gives you full details of what is and what is not covered and the conditions of the cover. Cover will vary from policy to policy and insurer to insurer. Conditions, exclusions & warranties: Conditions and exclusions will apply to individual sections of your policy while general exclusions, conditions and warranties will apply to the whole of your policy. Medical expenses: Your policy does not provide private health treatment unless specifically approved by the emergency assistance service. You should carry an EHIC (European Health Insurance Card) or equivalent and use this at state facilities when travelling within the European Union. Health: Your policies will provide cover for Cancellation, Emergency Medical Expenses and Curtailment due to an existing medical condition provided that at the time of taking out this insurance and at any time prior to travel you are able to confirm that: • You are not aware of any reason why you may have to cancel or cut short the planned trip. • If you have any medical condition which has been previously diagnosed, investigated or treated in any way, you have: • not been advised against travelling by your Registered Medical Practitioner. • not had your medication changed due to exacerbation or instability of your condition • not been told you are terminally ill (unlikely to live for longer than six months) • You are not currently receiving or awaiting treatment for any illness or injury as a hospital day case or in-patient • You are not travelling for the purpose of obtaining medical treatment abroad. • If you have received medical treatment for any illness or injury as a hospital day case or in-patient within the six months prior to booking the trip that you have consulted with your Registered General Practitioner regarding your ability to participate in the planned trip and had your records noted accordingly • You do not have any psychological disorder such as depression, anxiety, stress, or illness causing mental instability Please note: that irrespective of where you are travelling there is no cover for claims arising directly or indirectly from a known existing medical condition of non travelling close relatives, the person you are intending to stay with, or a close business associate or any recognised complication caused by the known existing medical condition. If any of the above detailed are not true at the point of purchase then unfortunately we are unable to offer Cancellation,

Emergency Medical expenses or Curtailment cover as a result of your pre-existing medical condition or complication of it. It is also essential that you advise us of your necessary cancellation at the earliest opportunity. Your attention is drawn to the fact that Cancellation cover is limited to the date of diagnosis of a new condition or the date of exacerbation of an existing condition, as confirmed by the treating doctor or general practitioner. If the cancellation charge increases between the date of exacerbation of the existing medical condition and the date you cancel you are liable for the additional charges applied as a result of the delay in cancellation. You are not covered under any section for any of the following circumstances: • If you purchased this insurance after you started your trip • If you are not a resident of the United Kingdom or Channel Islands. • More than the maximum sum insurance shown in the policy. • Loss of earnings, additional hotel costs, additional car hire, additional parking fees, kennel fees or any other loss unless it is specified in the policy. • Your suicide, self-injury or any wilful act of self-exposure to danger (except where it is to save human life). • If you are travelling against the advice or recommendations published by the Foreign and Commonwealth Office applicable at the time of your departure. • Participation in any hazardous activities unless the appropriate additional premium has been paid and the policy endorsed. If you are travelling outside England, Scotland, Wales and Northern Ireland you must also confirm that: • If you have received medical treatment for any illness or injury as a hospital day case or in-patient within the 6 months prior to booking the trip that you have consulted with your Registered General Practitioner regarding your ability to participate in the planned trip and had your records noted accordingly. Hazardous Activities: If you are taking part in activities that present a risk of injury, including scuba diving and water sports, check that your policy covers you. Property Claims: These claims are paid based on the value of the goods at the time you lose them, and not on a ‘new for old’ or replacement cost basis, unless otherwise stated in your policy. Your policy will set out what proof the insurer needs to support a claim. Policy Limits: Most sections of your policy have limits on the amount the insurer will pay under that section. Some sections also include other specific limits, for example: for any one item or for valuables in total. Please check the policy limits if you intend on taking expensive items with you. Policy Excesses: Under most sections of the policy, claims will be subject to an excess. This means that you will be responsible for paying the first part of the claim. The amount you have to pay is the excess. You may be able to pay an additional amount to remove the standard policy excess.

Reasonable Care: You need to take all reasonable care to protect yourself and your property, as you would if you were not insured. Fraud: The making of a fraudulent claim is a criminal offence. Your insurer may be recording details of claims on an anti-fraud register. Complaints: Our Insurers set high standards, if you are not satisfied with the insurance policy, please refer to the policy wording which contains full details of the complaints procedure. ‘Cooling Off’ Period: Your policy will have a ‘cooling off’ period of 14 days, during which you can cancel the policy and get a refund. Your policy is governed by the law of England and Wales unless you and your insurers have agreed otherwise. If you would like more information, please contact your Tour Operator; particularly if you feel the insurance may not meet your needs.

Our Trading Charter and Booking Conditions set out clearly and simply the responsibility we have to you and in turn, you have with us, when a contract is made. When you book a holiday with us, which doesn’t include a flight, the money you pay us for the booking will be protected by the Bonded Coach Holidays Group of the Confederation of Passenger Transport UK Ltd, this is a Government approved consumer protection scheme. Please see the BCH Consumer Guarantee at www.bch-uk.org. There is no financial protection if you purchase just transport or accommodation-only from us. Booking and payment When a booking is made, the ‘lead name’ on the booking guarantees that he or she is 18 or over and has the authority and accepts on behalf of the party the terms of these booking conditions and pays the deposit indicated in the brochure. After we receive your booking and all appropriate payments, if the arrangements you wish to book are available, we will send you or your booking agent a confirmation invoice within 14 days. All monies paid to your booking agent are held by them on your behalf until we issue our confirmation invoice, thereafter your booking agent holds the money on our

behalf. A binding agreement will come into existence between us when we dispatch this invoice to the ‘lead name’ or your booking agent. Please check the confirmation carefully to ensure all the information is correct. This contract is governed by English Law, and the jurisdiction of the English Courts. Single occupancy of rooms, when available, may be subject to a supplementary charge and these will be shown in the brochure. You can book by paying a deposit for each person named on the booking but our commitment is always conditional upon the balance being paid as below; Deposit: £30.00 per person on all British holidays £50.00 per person on all Ireland Holidays £75.00 per person on all European holidays £75.00 per person on all Rail holidays £100.00 per person on all Jersey holidays The balance of the price of your holiday must be paid as indicated before your departure. If you book within our balance due period, you will need to pay the total holiday cost at the time of booking. If the balance is not paid in time we reserve the right to cancel your holiday, retain your deposit, and apply the cancellation charges set out in the paragraph below. The date of cancellation will normally be the date we receive your written confirmation that you intend to cancel or 15 days after the balance due date, whichever comes first. Where optional items are purchased as part of the holiday, these are payable on the balance due date except where items, such as theatre tickets, have been specifically purchased for you. In this case the cost may be payable at a separate date notified to you and will not normally be refunded unless we obtain a refund from the supplier we use. Your balance is due: 6 weeks prior to departure on most holidays 8 weeks prior to departure for Xmas/ New Year/Reunion and European holidays 70 days prior to departure for Jersey holidays 98 days prior to departure for Cruise holidays Brochure accuracy Although The Wilfreda Group make every effort to ensure the accuracy of the brochure information and pricing, regrettably errors do sometimes occur. You must therefore ensure you check the price and all other details of your holiday with us at the time of booking and when you receive our confirmation invoice. Our pricing policy The Wilfreda Group endeavour to ensure that the most up-to-date and correct prices are shown in our brochure. Occasionally, an incorrect price may be shown, due to an error. When we become aware of any such error, we will endeavour to notify you at the time of booking (if we are then

aware of the mistake) or as soon as reasonably possible. We reserve the right to cancel the booking if you do not wish to accept the price which is applicable to the holiday. Local Authorities in many towns and cities throughout Europe have introduced new tourist taxes which must be paid directly to the hotel by all guests in person. These taxes are not included in our prices but we will notify you when applicable. Holiday prices include all travel, hotel accommodation and meals as specified in the holiday description and VAT payable in the UK where applicable. The price of the holiday will not be subjected to any surcharges except those arising from exchange rate changes, transportation including the price of fuel, air & ferry operator fares and tolls, embarkation or disembarkation fees at terminals, duties and taxes (including the rate of VAT). Even in these cases we will absorb the cost equivalent to the cost of first 2% of the holiday price. Amounts more than this plus £1 administration fee and Travel Agents commission will be surcharged to you. If this means the total cost of the holiday increases by more than 10% then you are entitled to cancel your holiday and receive a full refund of all monies paid except any insurance premium and amendment charges. If you exercise the right to cancel we must receive written notice within 14 days of the date of the surcharge invoice. The currency exchange rate used in the holiday costings are based on rates as at the 3rd April 2018. If you change your booking If, after our confirmation has been issued, you wish to change to another of our holidays or change departure date, we will do our utmost to make the changes, but we cannot guarantee to do so. However, notification must be received in writing at our offices from the person who signed the booking form, at least six weeks before departures. This must be accompanied by a payment of £10 per person to cover our administrative costs, plus costs we incur in making the amendment. Alterations may not be able to be made within four weeks of departure and any such request for an alteration will be treated as a cancellation of the original booking and will be subject to the cancellation charges set out in paragraph below. Some arrangements cannot be changed without paying a cancellation charge of up to 100% of the ticket cost. Transferring your booking You can transfer your booking to somebody else but the person must satisfy all the conditions of the holiday and this change must be made before departure. This transfer will cost £10 per person plus reasonable costs to make the transfer. You will remain responsible for ensuring payment. This is in addition to (and does not affect) the separate responsibility of the transferee to us. If you need to cancel your holiday You or any member of your party may cancel your holiday at any time provided the cancellation is made

by the person signing the booking form and is communicated to us in writing via the office who made your original booking. You must pay cancellation charges to cover our administration costs and to compensate for the risk of us not reselling the holiday. Your cancellation will take effect from the date on which we or our agent receive your written confirmation of your cancellation. You must also return any tickets or vouchers you have received. A reduction in room occupancy may increase the charges for the remaining passengers by the application of supplements for low occupancy of rooms. Where bought in supplies, such as ferries, hotel accommodation etc have been bought in on your behalf, and where the terms and conditions of the supplier are nonrefundable, these products will be charged to you at the full retail rate. If this applies, the non-refundable items will be deducted from your holiday costs and the following scale of charges will be applied to the remainder: Period before departure within which written cancellation of package price is received

Amount of cancellation Charge as a % of total package cost

We reserve the right to do this at any time. We will let you or your booking agent know about any important changes as soon as possible. If after booking, and before departure, we make a major change to your holiday, you will have the option of withdrawing from the holiday without penalty or transferring to another holiday without any charge. In either case, we will pay you compensation, according to the scale set below. A major change includes the time of your departure or return time by more than 12 hours, a change in departure point, location of resort or type of hotel, a change in cross channel travel. If we tell you about any of these changes after we have confirmed your holiday booking (other than force majeure), you may either: • accept the new arrangements offered by us; or • accept a replacement holiday from us of equivalent or similar standard and price (at the date of the change), if we can offer you one; or • cancel your holiday with us and receive a full refund of all monies

If you have a complaint If you have a problem during your holiday, please inform your Driver or the relevant Supplier/Resort Representative immediately who will endeavour to put things right. If your complaint cannot be completely resolved locally, you must complete a Holiday Report Form which can be obtained by your Driver or local Representative, which you should keep. If you remain dissatisfied please follow this up within 14 days of your return home by writing to The Wilfreda Group giving your original booking reference number and all other relevant information, including the reference of the Holiday Report Form. It is therefore a condition of this contract that you communicate any problem to the supplier of the services in question AND to our Representative whilst in resort and obtain a written report form. If you fail to follow this simple procedure, we cannot accept responsibility, as we have been deprived of the opportunity to investigate and rectify the problem. Should your complaint not be resolved and you wish to pursue the complaint further the Bonded Coach Holiday Group have an Alternative Dispute Resolution scheme and full details are available from BCH/CPT. Please contact them at, the Confederation of Passenger Transport, Fifth Floor South, Chancery House, 53-64 Chancery Lane, London. WC2A 1QS Our coaches-seating arrangements We will always use our reasonable endeavours to provide a coach to the specification in our brochure or advert, but reserve the right to substitute an alternative vehicle should there be unforeseen circumstances. There is a seating plan but in some cases, operational reasons may require a coach with a different configuration. We reserve the right to alter a coach seating plan and allocate seats other than those booked. Single passengers may be required to share a double seat with other single passengers. When your booking is confirmed, you will be given a choice of seats that are available at that time. Specific seats will not be allocated on coaches operating a feeder service between joining points and main holiday departure points or on coaches that carry out transfers between airports, seaports etc. If you feel that you require two seats, then these must be purchased in advance at the time of booking. If you fail to do this and it transpires that the seat allocated is insufficient for your

needs and there is no alternative seating available, then you will be refused access to the coach and any payments made will be liable to forfeiture.

documents. We reserve the right to modify itineraries to conform with requests from competent authorities both within the UK and abroad.

and equipment, which we advise you about in our printed trip information. We want you to enjoy your holiday and will help you select an appropriate trip.

Hotel facilities

Excursions which are included in the cost of your booking are detailed on the brochure page and refunds will not be made for excursions not taken. Optional excursions booked and paid for in resort do not form part of your booking. Admission fees to buildings may not be included in the price of the holiday, please check.

Please see page four with regard to our policy on wheelchairs and mobility scooters.

Some hotel facilities and entertainment may be withdrawn for routine maintenance or be subject to seasonal availability and provision of the facilities cannot be guaranteed. Single occupancy of rooms may be subject to a supplementary charge. Health and safety In some foreign countries, standards of infrastructure, safety and hygiene may be lower than those to which we are accustomed in the UK. You should therefore exercise greater care for your own protection. There may be countries that we visit that have special medical requirements for tourists. These regulations are subject to change and our clients are responsible for complying with entry and current health requirements. If you are not sure of the health requirements for the country you are visiting, you are advised to check with your own GP before travelling. You are also advised to refer to the Department of Health leaflet ‘Health Advice for Travellers’. Some people may be at risk from discomfort or deep vein thrombosis (DVT) if they remain immobile on a journey for a long period. If you are planning to undertake a journey of more than three hours, you should consult your doctor, if you have ever had DVT, pulmonary embolism, a family history of clotting conditions, cancer or treatment for cancer, stroke, and heart or lung disease or if you have had major surgery in the past three months. We reserve the right to refuse any booking in the absence of a doctor’s certificate confirming that you are fit to travel. Where we provide comfort stops you are encouraged to walk around. Exercise reduces any discomfort which may be caused by periods of immobility. Smoking is not allowed on our coaches (including E-Cigarettes) and we do not allow pets or any other animals, although we accommodate registered assistance dogs, but not on overseas holidays. Travel documents, itineraries, pick-up points and passports For all Continental holidays, you will require a full 10-year British Passport (machine readable) valid for the period required for the country or countries you are visiting. If you do not hold a full British Passport or you have any doubts about your status as a resident British subject, you must check with the Embassy or Consulates of the Countries to be visited to confirm the Passport or visa requirements when you book. We cannot accept responsibility if passengers are not in possession of the correct travel documents. For full details on passport requirements, please contact ‘the identity and passport service’ on 0300 222 0000 (www.direct.gov.uk). You are responsible for ensuring you are at the correct departure point, at the correct time and with the correct

Special requests All special needs and requests should be entered on the booking form. These cannot be guaranteed except where confirmed as part of our holiday commitment to you and are detailed on your holiday booking confirmation. We are keen to ensure that we plan the arrangements for your holiday so that special needs and requests can be accommodated as far as possible. If you will need assistance, or may be unable to fully enjoy all aspects of your holiday you must tell us in advance so that we can maximise your enjoyment of the holiday. We will need to know if you will need special facilities in the hotel, taking part in the excursions or have difficulty boarding and travelling on the coach or other means of transport. Before booking your holiday, you should be sure that you and your party are both physically and mentally capable of completing the itinerary. If you need advice or further information, you or your booking agent should contact The Wilfreda Group. If you will require a special diet please tell us at the time of booking, or as soon as you are medically advised, together with a copy of the diet. Passengers with disabilities We want everyone to enjoy our travel arrangements. We are happy to advise and assist you in choosing a suitable holiday. But, as some of the accommodation and resorts featured may not cater for even minor disabilities, it is important that, when booking, you advise us of any disability, specific need or complex need you may have and any special requirements that will make sure the holiday is suitable. If a passenger requires personal assistance (for example, assistance with feeding, dressing, toileting, mobilising) then this passenger must travel with an ablebodied companion or carer and written confirmation that such assistance will be provided for the entirety of the holiday is required at the time of booking. Coach Drivers/Tour Managers are unable to provide such assistance. Important You must tell us if you have an existing medical condition, disability or complex need that may affect your holiday or other group members’ enjoyment of it, before you book your holiday. We reserve the right to request a doctor’s certificate confirming you are fit to travel. If, in our reasonable opinion, your chosen holiday is not suitable for your medical condition or disability, we reserve the right to refuse your booking. You are responsible for bringing with you the proper clothing

PASSENGER BEHAVIOUR We want all our customers to have a happy and carefree holiday. You are responsible for your behaviour and hygiene and the effect it may have on others. If you or any other member of your party is abusive, disruptive or behaves in a way that could cause damage or injury to others or affect their enjoyment of their holiday or which could damage property, we have the right to terminate your contract with us and we will have no further liability or obligation to you. If you are refused boarding on the outward journey we will regard it as a cancellation by you and we will apply cancellation charges. If the refusal is on your return journey, we have the right to terminate the contract with you.
