WHEN I RECALL MY TRAVELS ACROSS EUROPE IN THE AUTUMN, WINTER OR SPRING, I CAN’T HELP BUT REFLECT ON THE INTIMACY OF THESE SEASONS THAT BRING WITH THEM A GREAT SENSE OF PEACE AND TRANQUILLITY.

DISCOVERING AUTHENTIC DESTINATIONS SINCE 1947

As crowds disperse and landscapes reveal breathtaking autumnal scenery, one of my most memorable recollections is the magnificence of Scandinavian leaves turning warm hues of orange, red and gold. Then, of course, there are the festivities of Christmas to look forward to; a season that brings out the inner child in me. Two distinct locations come to mind; the first being Switzerland with its snow-capped Alps and wonderful Christmas Markets in which gingerbread fills you up and mulled wine keeps you warm. The other is Paris; its charm magnetic, where the enchanting decorations that light up the ChampsÉlysées are nothing short of magical. Perhaps my favourite time of the year is spring, when the world wakes from its winter slumber and a fresh burst of energy fills the air. Whenever I’m in London, I make sure to hop on my bike and cycle to our office. My journey takes me through Green Park, alongside vibrant yellow daffodils and past Buckingham Palace. It is incredible to feel revitalised and full of high spirits from the simple pleasures that come through a change of season. Today, I am delighted to offer such authentic experiences to each of our guests. I hope that you will join us on a journey through Europe to witness the rich beauty found across this range of seasons.

Departure Date The departure date is the date indicated on the Trafalgar confirmation. Security Security is a major concern to all of us and the situation globally is constantly changing. Events around the world, coupled with the “Travel Advisories” put out by various governments, may at times necessitate changes to the accommodations and itinerary or even trip cancellation. You must accept these risks involved in travel to any country that may experience security difficulties and accept responsibility for your own travel decisions. WHAT’S INCLUDED IN THE GUIDED HOLIDAY PRICE Inter-city Travel By private motorcoach, trains, cruises and ferries (see itineraries). Air Transportation Not included unless otherwise outlined in each itinerary page price panel. Guided Holiday By air-conditioned luxury motorcoaches. On London sightseeing and some Regional holidays, including the Middle East and Eastern Med, smaller motorcoaches without toilet facilities are used. If due to circumstances beyond our control motorcoaches are used otherwise than as advertised, a refund of $10 per person will be made. Toilets may be affected by higher altitude or extreme weather conditions such as freezing temperatures and for the comfort of those on board the motorcoach the toilets may have to be closed. In these circumstances additional rest breaks will be incorporated into the itinerary. Hotel Accommodation Prices are per person, based on two persons sharing with private bath or shower. Triple rooms may be available on selected holidays in limited numbers. Triple rooms will often feature one foldaway bed plus one double bed. Three adults may find these rooms small and suitcase space slightly restricted. They are generally more suitable for two adults and one child. Every effort has been made to reserve two-bed rooms; however, on some occasions, rooms with one double bed may be the only choice available. These rooms will be allocated to single Travellers and couples first; other rooms may feature a single bed and rollaway bed, murphy bed or sleeper sofa. A limited number of twin rooms are available with our Shared Rooming service. Trafalgar shall not be responsible or liable for any claims or issues arising out of the shared rooming. Special room requests (adjacent, connecting or lower-floor rooms, as examples) must be made at time of booking. Special room requests are not guaranteed and are based on availability at time of check-in. Many hotels are 100% smoke-free, including all guest rooms, restaurants, lounges, meeting rooms and public spaces. Smoking in a non-smoking room may result in a fine. Substitute hotels may be used sometimes. We try to use hotels of similar standard. Hotel Frequent Traveller program

points are not earned with hotels on Trafalgar holidays. Note hotel room sizes, standards, facilities and services provided may vary from country to country and region to region and are often local in style. Cruises Per person prices are based on two persons sharing a cabin with two berths, private shower and toilet. A limited number of single cabins are available at an extra cost. On Nile cruises, triple rooms are not available. Free WiFi Internet Service Complimentary WiFi service is available in many Trafalgar hotel guestrooms and/or the public areas of most hotels. In most countries complimentary WiFi is also provided on-board the motorcoaches except in remote locations. The WiFi on the motorcoaches uses the mobile phone network and as a result the connection will be slower than standard broadband and at times may not be available. Audio and Video streaming is not available using motorcoach WiFi. Please note that it is not available on train trips, or when the main Trafalgar motorcoach is not being used, such as on transfer motorcoaches and other local services. For further information on which countries WiFi is offered in as well as daily data allowances please refer to the Trafalgar website www.trafalgar.com/wifi. Travel Director Guided holidays are conducted in English by a professional Travel Director. In Egypt, only itineraries of 10 guests or more will be guided by a Travel Director. In Turkey and Israel holidays are conducted by a Local Expert. In the unlikely event that there are fifteen guests or less travelling on a departure, Trafalgar reserves the right to operate this departure on an individual basis with private transfers and individual arrangements. Please refer to the individual guided holiday. Itinerary extensions are operated on a locally hosted basis using regular English-speaking Local Host services. Meals Meals are included as detailed on itineraries. Sightseeing Experiences, entrance fees and an Englishspeaking Local Specialist (when required) are included as detailed in the itinerary pages. Transfers Between airports, hotels, railway stations and piers are included as indicated on each guided holiday itinerary. There will be no refund for missed or unused transfers. If you did not purchase your flights from Trafalgar, you will need to provide your arrival and departure flight information to Trafalgar at the time of booking. It is your responsibility to update Trafalgar with any changes to your flight schedule to ensure that you receive your transfers. Failure to do so may result in missing these services and no refund shall be due for missed arrival transfers resulting from missing or outdated flight information. Porterage Luggage handling of one suitcase per person, at each guided holiday hotel and porter service at airports for intra-air inclusive guided holidays, is included in the guided holiday price. Due to limited motorcoach capacity, a single bag is allowed with dimensions not exceeding 30”x18”x10” (76x46x25cm) and weight not exceeding 50 lbs. (23kg). Airlines may impose stricter weight and size limits for luggage and may also charge fees for checked luggage, including the first checked bag. Please check with your airline(s) directly for their most current luggage regulations and related fees. Trafalgar is not responsible for additional fees imposed by air carriers regarding luggage. A charge of US$6/CA$6 or local currency equivalent per travelling day will be collected by the Travel Director if a second piece of luggage is permitted to be carried, or if suitcase exceeds weight or size limits. This is not assurance that luggage in excess of limits on size, weight and number of pieces will be permitted on the motorcoach. Carry-on/hand luggage is restricted to one piece per person, not exceeding 12”x11”x6” (30x28x14 cm) to fit under your motorcoach seat or in the small overhead compartment. Carry-on/hand luggage handling is the responsibility of each guest and must be taken on and off the motorcoach by you each day of the guided holiday.

Changes to flight itineraries and name changes and/or corrections may either not be allowed or may result in penalties charged by the airline. These are the guest’s responsibility.

Air Cancellation Cancellations incur a service fee of $75 per person, reduced to $35 if air ticket has not been issued prior to cancellation, plus any airline penalties. Airline imposed penalties may be up to 100% of the air ticket price. Published Fares, Priced Match Fares, Promo Fares and some other airfares booked are non-refundable. Airline Availability Seats are limited in our contracted class of service and may not be available on every flight. Trafalgar does not hold block space on any airline and does not assure seat availability for every single guided holiday departure date. Airline Seating Not all airlines offer pre-assigned seats. Some may charge for pre-assigned seats. Any additional charge imposed by airlines will be at guests’ expense. Where pre-assigned seats are not offered or different seats are desired, guests must contact airline(s) directly to arrange seating assignments. Seating is solely under the airline’s control, as are itinerary changes due to flight delays and schedule changes. Trafalgar reserves the right to offer alternative schedules for itineraries affected by airline schedule changes and equipment.

Airline Special Requests Seat assignment and special meal requests can be requested at time of booking. Trafalgar does not assure the request will be granted. Frequent Flyer miles can be accrued on most air carriers. Upgrades using mileage are not permitted. Many airlines do not automatically add frequent flyer numbers to records for flights booked and ticketed by Trafalgar. It is the guest’s responsibility to request frequent flyer credit from the airline. Trafalgar shall not be responsible for matters concerning frequent flyer miles. GENERAL INFORMATION & CONDITIONS Guided Holiday Prices Are based on costs, charges, tariffs, rates, prices, taxes, levies, exchange rates and other considerations as of the production date of this brochure (see back cover). All are subject to change. No surcharges regarding cost or currency fluctuations will be made to the LAND only price once the deposit is received. No refund will be made on account of reduction of any of the above. If the total guided holiday price increases by more than 10%, guests will have the option to cancel the guided holiday within 7 days of notification of the surcharge without penalty. All prices are in US Dollars unless specified. Other Fees and Taxes Taxes and fees are subject to change without notice and will be confirmed at time of booking. Any additional fees charged by the airlines such as luggage handling, seat selections, and/or any other services are the sole responsibility of the guest(s). Additional airrelated restrictions apply. Guided Holiday Participation On all guided holidays children under 5 years of age are not eligible to travel. Children under 18 years of age must be accompanied by an adult, who will be responsible for their welfare and supervision. Alcoholic beverages will not be served to guests under the legal age for alcohol consumption in the country being visited. Minors under age 18 traveling to certain foreign countries must be accompanied by both parents or have a notarized letter of consent signed by the parent(s) not traveling. Trafalgar is not responsible for any losses if you fail to have appropriate documentation. If the other parent is deceased or the child has only one legal parent, a notarized statement must be obtained as proof. Trafalgar seeks to provide a safe, enjoyable and memorable travel experience for all guests. Trafalgar welcomes guests with special needs or disabilities. Please note the following: - Guests must advise Trafalgar, at time of booking, of any physical, medical or other special needs that require accommodating. Trafalgar will make reasonable modifications to its policies, practices and procedures when necessary, unless doing so will fundamentally alter the nature of the services provided. - Guests must ensure they are medically and physically able to travel. - Trafalgar may impose safety requirements. Trafalgar may exclude an individual from participating in a guided holiday or an activity if the individual’s participation poses a threat to the health or safety of others. This decision, made solely by Trafalgar, to exclude an individual will be based on an individualized assessment based on reasonable judgment that relies on current medical evidence or on the best available objective evidence to determine the nature, duration and severity of the risk, the probability that potential injury will occur and whether reasonable modifications of policies, practices or procedures will mitigate the risk. No refunds will be given if the decision is made to exclude a guest. - Trafalgar does not provide personal devices (such as wheelchairs, hearing aids or prescription eye glasses) or services of a personal nature (such as eating, toileting or dressing). A Traveller who requires services of a personal nature (eating, toileting or dressing, as examples) should

strongly consider bringing a companion to provide such assistance and must understand that other Travellers, Travel Directors and Trafalgar Staff will not be available for such purposes. - Regrettably, motorized scooters are not allowed on guided holidays. - Trafalgar does not employ medical personnel. Any necessary medical attention must be sought at a local facility, if available, at the guest’s expense. Trafalgar is not responsible or liable for losses or costs incurred due to unavailability of medical services, or medical services obtained while on holiday, or for the quality of the care or services received. Medical care in other countries is not always comparable to care that you may receive in your local area. You are encouraged to purchase medical insurance that will cover you while on holiday. Your regular health insurance benefits may not apply abroad. - In purchasing your holiday, you attest that you are physically fit for it. If you have concerns please request additional details about your journey from your Travel Agent or Trafalgar. - Some guided holidays include rough terrain, extensive walking over cobblestone streets, uneven pavement, steps and/or locations which may not be easily accessible or accessible by wheelchair. During the guided holiday, Trafalgar may make arrangements with carriers, hotels and other independent suppliers to provide travel services. These parties are independent entities which Trafalgar does not control. Trafalgar cannot guarantee disability access or accommodations for guests traveling on international guided holidays. Many Optional Experiences are operated by independent third party suppliers, not Trafalgar. These are not part of the holiday package provided by us. Your contract will be with the operator of the experience. We are not responsible for providing of the experience, or anything that happens during the experience. Some experiences involve outdoor activities and/or can be physically demanding. You must make your own decisions about experiences and participate only in activities that suit your physical ability: we suggest that you speak with your medical provider if you have questions about your abilities. We recommend you check whether any insurance you have also includes your participation in adventure activities you may undertake. Trafalgar may, in its sole discretion, decline booking any guest or remove any guest who cannot comply or refuses to comply with Trafalgar’s terms and conditions. If this occurs, you are responsible for the cost of travel back to your hometown and Trafalgar shall not be liable for your losses and no refund shall be provided. Behaviour We are here to provide the best services possible but in doing so we will not tolerate abusive or aggressive behaviour from our guests. We will refuse to deal with and may terminate the holiday of guests who assault our Company Representatives or who are abusive or aggressive. When you make a booking, you accept responsibility for the proper conduct of all members of your party during your stay. We reserve the right at any time to terminate the travel arrangements and/or cease to deal with any party member(s) whose behaviour, in the reasonable opinion of us or our suppliers, may cause danger, upset, disruption or distress to anyone else or damage to property. Full cancellation charges will apply and no refund will be made. We shall have no obligation to pay compensation or meet any costs or expenses (including but not limited to alternative accommodation and return transportation arrangements) guest may incur as a result of the travel arrangements being terminated. If you damage the accommodation in which you are staying or any property, you must reimburse the accommodation provider or property owner concerned for the cost of the damage before the end of your stay if the cost has been established by then or as soon as it has been established if later. You must indemnify us for the full amount of any claim (also including legal costs) made against us. Criminal proceedings may be instigated. Trafalgar is not responsible for any costs incurred concerning a guest removed from a guided holiday or aircraft, ship or train.

Young Traveller Discount The Young Traveller must be under age 18 on the departure date to be eligible for the discount, and must be accompanied by an adult, sharing a twin room. Only one Young Traveller discount per room. This discount can be combined with our Travel With Family and Friends Discount. The Young Traveller discount may not be applicable on certain itineraries or regions. Please see ‘Your Savings’ for details. Itinerary Variations Trafalgar strives to improve guided holiday itineraries, services and features. If improvements can be made, or if circumstances beyond our control make changes necessary, we reserve the right to vary itineraries and to substitute hotels. At certain peak periods multiple departures may operate, sometimes in reverse order; hotels may vary from those stated on the itinerary pages. On guided holidays which include cruises, the ship may be changed for operational reasons. Departures in early and late season are potentially operated in cool weather conditions. As a result, itinerary variations may occur. Certain activities may not be precisely as described or may not be available due to seasonality or weather conditions. We will try to notify you or your Travel Agent of changes. If your enjoyment may be diminished by such limitations, please check with us or your Travel Agent before making a reservation. Trafalgar’s ‘Be My Guest’ experiences are unique and take place in singular locations. In the unlikely event that our local hosts are unable to welcome Trafalgar guests, Trafalgar will attempt to find an alternate experience or a highlight meal

will be provided in place of the ‘Be My Guest’ experience. Holidays & Changes During local or national holidays, certain facilities such as museums, sightseeing trips and shopping may be limited or unavailable. In such instances itinerary changes are made by Trafalgar seeking to reduce inconvenience to guests. Such changes are deemed not to be a major change to the itinerary, and no compensation will be payable to guests. Holidays, closing days and other circumstances may necessitate a change of the day of the week for scheduled regional meals, sightseeing or other activities. If, you feel your enjoyment might be diminished by any of these circumstances please check with the respective national tourist office before selecting a specific departure date. Extended stays If you arranged with us to remain at a destination before or after your guided holiday, your stay will be at your sole expense as is the transfer to either the hotel or airport. Please see the ‘Extend Your Stay’ section for a list of pre- and post-guided holiday accommodation. Space is limited and if available is for up to three nights before and/ or after each guided holiday. Breakfast and luggage handling is not included unless otherwise noted. Trafalgar does not provide complimentary transfers for guests booking pre-and post-night accommodations. However, inexpensive airport transfers can be purchased from Trafalgar. If your extra night accommodation is not the hotel where your guided holiday begins or ends, you will be responsible for your transfer arrangements at your own expense. For your comfort Trafalgar operates a daily seat rotation system and enforces a strict no smoking (including e-cigarettes) and no alcohol policy on board motorcoaches. Regular comfort stops are made on traveling days. Many hotels, restaurants, trains, cruises and other venues are 100% smoke free. Guided Holiday Cancellation Trafalgar reserves the right to cancel or re-schedule any guided holiday departure in any circumstances, including in accordance with operating requirements or circumstances beyond its control. If cancellation is made by Trafalgar any time prior to departure date of the guided holiday except when you failed to pay the final balance on time, Trafalgar will either refund the amount received for the guided holiday booking, or offer a comparable holiday if available. Trafalgar will refund any difference in price if the alternative is of a lower price however, the Guest will be responsible for additional costs if the alternative is priced higher. Trafalgar is not responsible for other travel arrangements affected due to our cancellations and is not liable for any cancellation penalties incurred on other travel arrangements including air tickets. Travel Insurance Trafalgar recommends that all guests purchase comprehensive Travel Insurance. Certain countries have a requirement for foreign visitors to have valid medical insurance on entry. Trafalgar cannot be held responsible for denied entry if a guest is unable to provide details to authorities of insurance or denial of entry for any reason. If you are booking your Trafalgar guided holiday through a travel agency, please ensure that your insurance covers insolvency of the travel agency you are booking through. Please note that your travel agent will ask for this confirmation and decision upon booking.
