Two & multi centres Many of us enjoy numerous short breaks and longer holidays each year and, because all our holidays are personalised, you can take as many holidays as you wish, for whichever duration suits. Additionally, you may like to combine the contrasting scenery between a bustling city and a coastal resort; simply ask our reservations team to help with your choice of two or multi centre trips. We can put together lots of different itineraries until you’re happy with the result, and the price!

Hotel only Before your holiday, you might be flying on a business trip or you might be meeting friends and family who live abroad. Whatever the reason, if any of your party wants to organise their own travel arrangements, we are happy to book the hotel accommodation only. Plus we can easily include private resort transfers if you let us know the arrival and departure times of your flights.

Holiday vouchers For honeymoons or weddings abroad, holiday vouchers make the perfect gift for friends and family; call our customer relations team for details.

Last minute bookings Owing to the individual character and popularity of many of our properties, all the best rooms and suites do tend to get booked well in advance although, if you are looking for a last minute short break or holiday, do give us a call to see what’s available.

Welcome to Portugal Mainland Portugal is fairly compact allowing visitors to easily enjoy the spectacular coasts, fantastic beaches and stunning river valleys, lush hillsides and mountains, all within one holiday. And, of course, there are the interesting and historic cities of Lisbon and Porto to explore; the former famed for the significance of its sea-faring traditions, and the latter as the birthplace of port.

The Douro Valley is stunningly striking and a must for wine connoisseurs and railway enthusiasts alike, and the island of Madeira, easily reached by direct flight from the UK, or combined as a two centre with the Portuguese mainland, is the lushest of islands famed for its tropical gardens and delightful levada walking.

Lisbon tram

When to visit Porto and the Douro Valley experience warm, dry summers and especially pleasant late spring and autumn temperatures in the low 20’s; perfect for walking and sightseeing. The Lisbon and Estoril coastal area enjoys a Mediterranean-style climate with mild winters, warmed by the Gulf Stream and boasting more than 250 days of annual sunshine, the Algarve has a consistently good climate with hot summer months and delightfully fresh breezes permeating the winter months. Madeira is generally warm and sunny all year round; although with the lush mountainous landscape, there’s no surprise that there is a certain amount of rainfall on occasion.

Cuisine Lovers of seafood are amply catered for with a surfeit of fresh fish and shellfish, although grilled or roasted meat tends to be the mainstay of most menus. Regional specialities include cataplana, a succulent mix of ham, sausage, cockles, clams, white wine and spices and popular on the Algarve, whilst Madeira’s locally caught espada, scabbard fish, is grilled with lemon, or battered and served with locally grown banana. Francesinhas, bread topped with steak, sausage, cheese and tangy beerflavoured chilli sauce are popular in Porto, and in Lisbon, pastry-aficionados love Pasteis de Belem, delicious flaky custard tartlets. Restaurants range from rustic taverns to elegant restaurants offering modern twists on national cuisine, and at lunch there’s often a prato do dia, dish of the day, or a set three course meal, ementa turistica; menus often list two sizes, meia dose, a half portion, or uma dose, a full portion.

and a private tour in the company of a local expert is a great way to start. Why not try a walking tour in the Algarve with an ornithological expert, or helicopter flights to familiarise yourself with Lisbon and Porto. Tell us what you’d like to see and we’ll arrange it for you.

Gastronomy Foodies know that there’s little to match hunting out fresh ingredients at local markets, but our concierge service can take it one step further. Osvalde Silva, Executive Chef at Conrad Algarve, can help you discover the authentic delights of a typical Algarvian market where you’ll learn all the secrets of the traditional cataplana seafood, by way of Portuguese pastries and a typical bica espresso. Prepare cataplana with the chef whilst enjoying the wine of the region. Cookery lessons and chef masterclasses are also available in Lisbon and Porto.

Dance lessons A great way to burn off the calories from the fine Portuguese cuisine. Depending on where in Portugal you are staying, you can rumba, salsa or kizomba your way to svelteness. We have several dance instructors who can put your feet to work and dance academies where you can enjoy a fun and sociable aspect to your holiday.

Porto A city of hidden delights, Porto is best known as the historic home of port wine and boasts scenic riverscapes, a handsome quayside, traditional shops and elegant cafés, a wonderful mix of architectural styles, as well as lively squares and a buzzing nightlife, and of course a plethora of port wine lodges.

Portugal’s second largest city, romantic and stylish Porto, also known as Oporto, is the birthplace of port and with the surrounding area covered by vineyards, a haven for wine aficionados. Built along the hillsides and standing impressively at the mouth of the River Douro, the city boasts a 2,000 year long history and has an interesting blend of architectural styles, ranging from the 12th century cathedral to the striking new concert hall, Casa da Musica. The atmospheric waterfront is lined with cafés, clubs, bars and fine restaurants and port wine lodges offer tours and tastings of the finest fortified wines in the world. Porto is a popular weekend getaway, and with its efficient metro system is easy to get around.

Discover the city

Vila Nova de Gaia

Since Porto was declared the European City of Culture in 2001 many of the streets and squares have been reconstructed and the city’s historical buildings restored; particularly of note is the charming Ribeira neighbourhood, now a UNESCO World Heritage Site, with narrow, cobbled streets, colourful traditional houses, art galleries, ancient churches and a lively street life. Highlights in the area include the magnificent baroque Church of St Francisco with its gilt interiors and the splendid neoclassical Palacio da Bolsa, where the fabulous ballroom stucco walls are gilded with 18kg of gold. For a fabulous panoramic view climb the distinctive landmark of Porto, the 75m high belltower, Torre dos Clerigos, and for art lovers, the Museu Nacional de Soares dos Reis houses a fine collection of Portuguese paintings and sculptures. There are a number of beautiful parks and gardens and Avenida dos Aliados for a spot of shopping, while local markets include vibrant 19th century Mercado do Bolhao, and long-established flea market, Feira de Vandoma. Foz do Douro, 5km away, is a popular beach and can be reached by a short tram ride.

On the south side of the river lies the town of Vila Nova de Gaia, home to the famous port wine lodges and warehouses. The stunning waterside promenade is lined with cafés, bars and restaurants; and there are beautiful traditional boats, barcos rabelos, once used for transporting port wine down the river.

www.classic-collection.co.uk I freephone 0800 008 7288 or 0800 820 3113

Cuisine Enjoying something of a culinary renaissance in recent years, Porto now boasts excellent fine dining restaurants such as the two Michelin star restaurant at The Yeatman, as well as more traditional eateries serving generous portions of rustic cuisine. As can be expected, a huge variety of wonderfully fresh fish and shellfish feature highly on the menu, the local delicacy is tripe stew, and popular francesinhas, bread topped with steak, sausage, cheese and a tangy beerflavoured chilli sauce, is served in most places, whilst wine by the glass and small plates of petiscos, Portuguese tapas, can be enjoyed at one of the many bars. As well as the famous port wine, the surrounding vineyards in the Douro Valley produce full bodied reds and the fresh and delicate white wine, Planalto.

Sightseeing

Fundacao Serralves Located 4km west of Porto is the wonderful 18-hectare park, Parque de Serralves. Set amidst its formal, landscaped gardens, swept gravel paths, romantic lake, fountains and whimsical art instillations, is the strikingly minimalist building housing the Museu de Arte Contemporanea with contemporary works of art from the 1960's to present day.

Bridges The city boasts five spectacular bridges including the Ponte Dona Maria Pia bridge built by Gustave Eiffel and once the longest arch bridge in the world, whilst the Ponte de Dom Luis I bridge offers fabulous views of Vila Nova de Gaia and the Ribeira neighbourhood.

Casa da Musica One of the city’s leading cultural venues, Casa da Musica concert hall is a stunning 17-sided avant-garde building designed by the distinguished Dutch architect Rem Koolhaas and hosts a wide variety of concerts, from classical to electronic, jazz to fado, major international productions to smaller experimental projects. There are daily tours through this remarkable building with its surprising interiors.

River cruises There are daily and frequent river cruises in the summer from an hour long cruise for the best views of the city’s famous bridges to evening and dinner cruises and full day or weekend tours.

Port wine tours

Church of Ildefonso

Many of the port wine lodges located in Vila Nova de Gaia offer tastings and guided tours including the British-run Taylor’s founded in 1692, Ramos Pinto, housing a lovely museum in its 1930's offices, Calem with its very informative visitors centre and, recently renovated, Graham’s 1890 Lodge featuring a restaurant and terrace with wonderful views over the river.

Se Cathedral Originally built in the 12th century, the fortress-like Se Cathedral has undergone various alterations over the centuries and features a Gothic rose window and cloister, a 17th century chancel, and an 18th century high altar and rococo doorway. Parque de Serralves

Douro Valley From Porto to the Spanish border, the Douro Valley, boasting vineyards and wineries, quintas and pousadas, provides an area of majestic scenery with steep sided valleys, tributaries aplenty and delightful ribbon lakes formed by a total of five dams; a series of locks allows the entire 200km to be navigable.

Northern Portugal’s Douro Valley is a stunningly beautiful region of terraced vineyards and olive groves with verdant vegetation cascading down the hill slopes towards the river and its numerous tributaries. Winding from northern Spain for 200km to the Atlantic Ocean at Porto, the River Douro provides a fantastic focus with its locks, dams and ribbon lakes, and enchanting historic towns. Railway journeys are spectacular and there’s great fishing and river boat trips, plus walking and hiking through the impressive terrain. Established in the 18th century when the port wine industry developed, this was the world’s first demarcated wine region and there are many famous port wine estates, quintas, located on the steeply terraced hillsides.

Lamego

Cuisine

Overlooked by an ornate shrine, the elegant and historic town of Lamego, renowned for its fragrant sparkling wine, Raposeira, has a charming old town centre with winding narrrow lanes, tree-lined boulevards and numerous medieval landmarks.

The Douro Valley is well-known for its meat dishes which include wild boar stew, partridge and cozido a portuguesa, boiled meat, sausages and cabbage. The region’s fish, usually served fried or marinated, is caught in the Douro River or one of its many tributaries, and as in the rest of the country the region has its very own way of preparing the popular salt cod. The caldo verde soup has its origins in the north, most meals come with a side order of bread and there is a wide variety of fruit available. Desserts include traditional pastries, crème caramel and crème brulee, rice pudding and aletria, sweet vermicelli with cinnamon.

Pinhao The small port wine producing town of Pinhao is well known as one of the famed stops on the picturesque train journey along the Linha do Douro and the charming railway station is beautifully decorated with wonderful blue azulejos, Portugal’s distinctive tiles. There is a riverfront promenade where boats dock and a few bars with stunning views over the river.

Amarante Nestling between the steep sides of the Serra do Marao and the banks of the slow running Rio Tamega, the attractive town of Amarante is one of the region’s main Vinho Verde producing towns; it is said to have been founded by the Benedictine monk, St Goncalo, back in the 13th century. There’s a pretty granite bridge, a monastery and a lively plaza with delightful cafés and shops.

Lisbon & Estoril Coast Lisbon is as understated as it is elegant, and should a beauty contest of European cities ever be held, the Portuguese capital would be assured of its place on the podium. West of Lisbon is the stunning Estoril Coast, famed for its fabulous beaches, vibrant towns, excellent golf courses, a motorracing circuit and casino.

Lisbon

A

Although a modern cosmopolitan capital, Lisbon wears its heritage on its sleeve creating an enchanting marriage of past and present. The earthquake of 1755 might have denied the city world class palaces, churches and monuments, but this is more than compensated for by a graceful charm and easygoing friendliness. Alfama is the city’s bustling medieval quarter, Belem the cultural heart and museum district and Bairro da Lapa its most elegant residential neighbourhood. Baixa is the area in which to shop and the Parque das Nacoes houses one of the world’s largest and finest

aquariums, Oceanario de Lisboa. Entertaining by both day and night a stay in Lisbon can easily be filled with sightseeing, lounging in cafés or dining in traditional Portuguese restaurants.

Estoril The stylish beach resort of Estoril has long enjoyed a glamorous reputation as the cosmopolitan holiday destination of the rich and famous on the Portuguese Riviera, with many attracted by the renowned grand casino; the largest of its kind in Europe it offers shows, concerts, cabarets, art exhibitions and restaurants in addition to its high class gambling and was the setting of the James Bond movie On Her Majesty’s Secret Service. As well as the casino, the magnificent palm-lined Parque do Estoril and a golf course, there are numerous fine restaurants, exclusive hotels, glorious sandy beaches within walking distance of the town and a buzzing atmosphere in the evenings. Lisbon is a short train ride away and there are great day trips to the pretty town of Sintra and the hills of the Serra de Sintra National Park.

Cascais In the second half of the 19th century, when sea bathing became a popular activity, Cascais was given the impetus which transformed it from a busy fishing port into a very fashionable summer holiday resort. A summer residence was built for the monarch and the King’s example was immediately copied by the nobility, who built palaces and extremely beautiful villas in the town. Today Cascais is a lively and cosmopolitan town that still preserves a great deal of its earlier aristocratic atmosphere. Stroll through the streets with their luxury boutiques or enjoy a few moments’ rest at one of the many outdoor cafés and restaurants scattered about the town. The beaches continue to be one of Cascais’ greatest attractions; choose from those situated in the town’s sheltered bay or those a little further away in the area around Guincho, part of the Sintra-Cascais Natural Park. The Boca do Inferno (literally the Jaws of Hell), an inlet along the coast that is surrounded by steep rocks and caves, is a natural curiosity attracting many thousands of visitors to appreciate the brute strength of the ocean.

Sightseeing

Sintra Originally built by the Moors during the 9th and 10th centuries, Castelo dos Mouros is a castle located on a high hill overlooking the town of Sintra and is part of the cultural landscape of Sintra which is recognised as a UNESCO World Heritage Site. The castle was romantically renovated in the 19th century and the views of from its walls and towers are simply breathtaking.

Lisbon by day Drive through one of the main avenues of the city to the very heart of Lisbon at Rossio square. Take in Alfama, the oldest and the most picturesque quarter of the city, with a stop for wine tasting before crossing the Tagus to explore the many delights and panoramic vistas of Belem. There’s also an unique opportunity to visit the church of St. Jerome Monastery, a masterpiece of the Manuelin style.

Elevador de Santa Justa A neo-Gothic curiosity which is the craftsmanship of Gustave Eiffel’s apprentice, Raul Mesnier. Stunning panoramas of Lisbon’s cityscape are to be had from the top of this vertical street lift.

Sintra

Torre de Belem, Lisbon

Cuisine From city-chic restaurant menus to humble fishermen’s home-cooking, there is a huge variety of dishes. With a surfeit of fresh fish and shellfish, lovers of seafood will find themselves amply catered for. Pork, lamb and steak dishes are not an uncommon sight on menus taking their side alongside dishes influenced by former African, Asian and Oriental colonies, which might tempt the more adventurous palate. Portuguese ports and wines are eminently drinkable and a very varied selection of fresh fruit and vegetables complete a diverse culinary picture. Pastry-lovers must not leave without sampling Pasteis de Belem, delicious flaky tartlets filled with custard like cream.

Guarding the river entrance to Lisbon’s harbour, this flamboyant concoction of filigree stonework affords fabulous views over Belem and the River Tagus and is accessed by a wooden walkway from a lovely green park.

Tagus river cruise Jerónimos Monastery, Lisbon

Discover Lisbon on a Tagus River cruise passing monuments along the river, admire the castle on the hill and enjoy a panoramic view of Parque das Nacoes with its modern architecture and Oceanario de Lisboa aquarium.

Lisbon Oceanarium The otters really steal the show, but they’re just one of 8,000 fish, birds and mammals on display at one of the world's most impressive and largest marine aquariums.

When to visit Belying a location on the very edge of Western Europe, the climate and ambience of Lisbon and the Estoril coast feel decidedly Mediterranean with a twist of the exotic. Gulf-stream induced mild winters allow palm trees and birds of paradise to flourish and the diverse ethnicity of the area is testament to Portugal’s imperial adventures in former African and Indian colonies.

A ride through the most scenic parts of Lisbon aboard an (often) vintage but (always) full tram which appeals to both locals and tourists, so there is a good mix of people on board.

Algarve Stretching for 100 miles along the southern coast of Portugal the Algarve offers glorious year-round sunshine, countless sandy beaches, hidden coves, fresh Atlantic waters and a sultry Mediterranean feel, not to mention an abundance of internationally renowned championship golf courses.

Carvoeiro beach

Today as a meeting point between Europe and Africa, the Algarve is a fascinating mixture of Moorish, Portuguese and European cultures with a landscape more North African than European. Fig trees, orange and almond groves and meticulous vineyards dominate the gently undulating hills a few miles inland from the ocean, bringing welcome bright colours to the landscape. As well as beaches, gentle countryside and charming, unspoiled old-fashioned villages a major attraction of the Algarve is its towns. Faro, Lagos and Tavira have evident Moorish influences, whilst Silves, Salir and Alte are quiet mountain towns and a throwback to a time when life moved at a gentler pace.

Western Algarve

Central Algarve

Sagres’ location out on the very tip of Portugal lends this fishing outpost an impressive end of the world feeling of glorious isolation; there’s a fine beach, a pretty square and a picturesque harbour. Further east, Lagos is a bustling town with strong maritime links and an impressive natural harbour, a well-restored fortress, an old town and a large, modern marina. In addition, the beaches around Lagos are some of the best in the area ranging from flat stretches with shallow waters to small and pretty with strange and wonderful rock formations and steep cliffs. The fishing village of Alvor has an old world charm and an estuary with a series of lagoons, as well as rolling sand dunes, dramatic cliffs and sheltering rocks. The resort of Praia da Rocha boasts a wide 2km long beach lapped by clear, warm waters and backed by an array of restaurants, bars and shops. Attractive Carvoeiro is a former fishing village of whitewashed houses nestling on red sandstone cliffs, whilst Porches noted for its artisan pottery, fine wine and delicious seafood, features a golden beach and limestone cliffs.

Albufeira is widely regarded as the Algarve’s longest-standing and most well-known holiday resort. Narrow, cobbled, whitewashed alleyways converge on the old town’s main square and unspoilt beaches and bays line the coast including charming Santa Eulalia, the tiny seaside village Sao Rafael, tranquil Salgados boasting white sand dunes and a golf course, and Falesia, a beautiful blue flag beach framed by high, red sea cliffs. Nearby is the purpose-built resort of Vilamoura with its smart yachts, elegant bars and high-end restaurants, plus no fewer than four championship golf courses.

Eastern Algarve The coastal town of Olhao with the largest fishing port in the Algarve and an excellent fish market has developed a reputation of being the region’s gastronomic capital. The old quarter has a distinctly Moorish feel and in summer there are regular ferries to the barrier-island beaches of Culatra and Armona that form part of the Ria Formosa Natural Park.

Sightseeing Faro

Alcazar Palace, Seville

Faro, capital of the Algarve, is attractive and easy to explore on foot as it fans out from the small harbour to encompass the compact historic old city. Intricate homemade lace, a variety of leather goods, terracotta pottery and the outstanding Atlantis lead crystal make ideal souvenirs and you can while away hours browsing the shops and relaxing in the cafés by the harbour or in the park by the waterfront.

Lagos, Sagres & Monchique Contrast the attractive bustling coastal town of Lagos with its delightful marina and historic fortifications, the coastal village of Sagres with its picturesque harbour, and high up in the hills, the small town of Monchique with its spectacular views.

Variety

Albufeira beach

and sleepy village of Moncarapacho, whilst the town of Tavira is a true gem and one of Algarve’s most historic cities; there are churches, stately 16th century mansions, riverfront gardens, a castelo and a sevenarched stone bridge of Roman origin.

Ria Formosa Natural Park

Activities The Algarve is a top destination for sports and activity based holidays. With great weather and superbly designed golf courses, the region has developed a well-earned reputation for offering world class golfing opportunities. Tennis also has a loyal following with many hotels offering excellent facilities. Given the large number of glorious southfacing beaches watersports enthusiasts will never be disappointed. Jet-skiing, sailing, windsurfing, big-game fishing and scuba diving are all readily available, although options might be more limited in the winter months. Adrenaline junkies might prefer to move inland to try abseiling, caving, paintballing, archery, mountain biking, trekking, horse-riding, or take to the wheel and go karting at the outdoor track in Almancil. Tailor-made four-wheel drive safari trips can meet almost any request and there’s even hot air balloon flights and parachuting!

Discover the countryside on a walking tour or biking trip or, for younger family members, there are numerous theme parks including Aquashow and Slide & Splash.

Silves

A protected area and one of the seven natural wonders of Portugal, Ria Formosa Natural Park is a unique coastal landscape of marshes, tidal flats, islets, dunes, saltpans, freshwater lagoons and woodlands; all holding an impressive diversity of flora and fauna that can be discovered on a guided walk, on a bike ride, boat trip or in a kayak.

Boats & cruises Coastal boat and catamaran trips available from Lagos include Piedade grottoes and Sagres, and from Vilamoura or Albufeira, Benagil Beach. For riverboat enthusiasts, there’s a delightful cruise along the Guadiana River which borders Portugal and Spain.

For our full range of holidays to Madeira please see our dedicated brochure or view online

Madeira

The Island of Eternal Springtime, Lover’s Isle, Pearl of the Atlantic and Floating Garden of the Atlantic are just a few of the epithets awarded to Madeira. The island enjoys an excellent year round climate, superb quality hotels and stunning scenery.

Madeira is the tip of a gigantic mountain protruding from the ocean depths and the variations in altitude provide a variety of natural habitats from stunning coastal scenery to soaring mountainous peaks. The island is 35 miles long and 16 miles wide, the central area is volcanic in origin and its subtropical climate and moderate rainfall provide an environment where lush vegetation prevails and exotic flowers bloom all year. Madeira’s rich history provides many places of interest and amidst the natural beauty discover small traditional villages, seek out interesting churches and museums and enjoy various festivals with the locals who delight in sharing their many celebrations with visitors.

Funchal

Flora & fauna

Madeira’s capital, Funchal, is a bustling cosmopolitan city with a distinct British feel set against a backdrop of dramatic mountains, beautiful parks and gardens, elegant tree-lined avenues and narrow cobbled streets lined with delightful little shops, pavement cafés and traditional restaurants. There is a covered market full of colour, the Botanical Gardens play host to a profusion of plants and flowers, whilst a visit to the Wine Lodges to sample the worldfamous Madeira wines is a must.

Thanks to a sub-tropical climate and mountainous landscape you will find a profusion of exotic flowers and a visit to the Botanical Gardens is highly recommended.

Porto Santo The beautiful beach-lovers island of Porto Santo lies around 27 miles to the northeast of Madeira and the journey by local ferry takes about two and half hours each way.

Carnivals & festivals In addition to the islands four major festivals, Carnival, the Flower Festival, the Wine Festival and its internationally renowned New Year’s Eve celebrations, the islanders have a busy schedule of public holidays, saints’ days, local parish festivals and small celebrations.

Cuisine In addition to Portuguese specialities Madeira has its own typical dishes and as a rule food is simple, cooked using fresh ingredients and served up in hearty portions.

When to visit ean

Generally warm and sunny throughout the year, however with lush green landscapes rain can be expected on occasion. The south is warm and pleasant all year with the north somewhat cooler.

Holiday information MAKING A BOOKING If you book through a travel agent, they will check details and availability with us and if you accept these as satisfactory, a formal contract will exist between you and Classic Collection Holidays. If you make a booking directly with us, we will discuss and confirm the details of the holiday with you and, if you accept these as satisfactory, a formal contract will exist between you and Classic Collection Holidays and your credit card details will be taken at that time. In either event, you must pay the appropriate initial payment or, if within 8 weeks of departure, the full holiday price. The booking form (downloadable from our website) and payment must reach us within 4 working days of the booking being confirmed and we reserve the right to cancel the booking and apply full cancellation charges if they are not received within this time. Late bookings made within 8 weeks of departure require that the total balance is paid immediately. Normal cancellation charges apply to late bookings should you subsequently cancel. Recommendations can be made by our team although the final decision as to hotel and resort suitability is ultimately your choice and we cannot be held liable for our suggestions. To help maintain our high levels of service, calls may be recorded. Special requests such as adjoining rooms, dietary requirements etc, should be detailed under Special requests on the booking form. We will inform the property management and/or carrier of your requirements but we cannot guarantee that these will be met. Where additional local costs are involved, payment should be made directly to the supplier. If you have a disability or suffer mobility difficulties, please complete our Mobility Questionnaire before we confirm your booking. You may wish to research the suitability of your chosen property with Tourism for All 0845 124 9971/73 www.tourismforall.org.uk

BEFORE YOU TRAVEL Passports, visas & travel advice Your passport, visa and immigration requirements are your responsibility and you should confirm these with relevant Embassies and/ or Consulates. We do not accept any responsibility if you cannot travel because you have not complied with any passport, visa or immigration requirements. For British Citizens, a full ten-year passport is required for travel and it is recommended that your passport is valid for six months from your return date to the UK. Children under 16 must hold their own five-year passport. Contact the UK Passport Agency 0870 521 0410 or www.gov.uk/browse/ abroad/passports for details. Please note that your name and initials on your flight tickets/documentation must match those on your passport. For up-to-date advice from the UK Foreign & Commonwealth Office about travel to, and within, your chosen destination, please visit www.gov. uk/foreign-travel-advice noting that, as advice can change, it is important to check regularly for the latest information.

Vaccinations & health requirements In some countries it is wise, and sometimes obligatory, to have certain vaccinations. As regulations frequently change you should check with your GP’s surgery or www.travelhealthpro.org.uk for up to date information regarding health risks or vaccination requirements. Travel documentation Your flight tickets including e-ticket information and holiday itinerary will normally be dispatched approx 10 days prior to departure although very late booking confirmations and e-ticket details may be forwarded by email only. UK airport charges To cover the cost of development or improvement works, some UK airports charge an airport improvement fee which is payable within the relevant check-in area. For example, at Norwich International Airport a development fee of £10 per adult (16 years+) is payable.

OUR BROCHURE & HOLIDAY DETAILS Brochure accuracy This brochure was printed on 19 October 2018. Details are valid for departures from 1 November 2018 to 31 October 2019 or until publication of any revised edition, or you are notified otherwise by your travel agent or our reservations staff. All the facts in this brochure are re-checked for accuracy by our staff and, where possible, our hoteliers, although of course it is always feasible, especially in low season, that facilities may be unavailable as hotels, especially those which are open all year round, will require maintenance (eg pools), redecoration and refurbishment. Service within hotels may change from time to time eg dining changes from traditional waiter service to buffet style. Such events are regrettably beyond our control although we will alert you to significant changes at time of booking, or if you have already booked, we will contact you as soon as is reasonably possible if there is time before your departure. Hotel details We are happy to advise hotel web addresses, but cannot accept responsibility for their accuracy. Room types and upgrades Single rooms normally carry a supplement which is for the convenience of having a room to yourself and location/facilities may be inferior to that of a twin room. In family rooms and twin or double rooms that take additional beds, do note that the extra

www.classic-collection.co.uk I freephone 0800 008 7288 or 0800 820 3113

bed/s could be of a folding or convertible sofa type and beds for children may not be full adult-sized singles. When additional beds are put in a room, floor space will be reduced and cupboard access may be limited. Junior suites normally have a sitting area, and suites have a sitting area or separate sitting room. Ocean or sea view rooms enjoy views of the ocean/sea although foliage, buildings etc may sometimes interupt a full view. Ocean facing or sea facing rooms will face the ocean/sea but will normally be on lower floors where the view of the ocean/sea may be obscured through gardens/trees etc. Side ocean view or side sea view rooms tend to offer a restricted view of the ocean or sea. Please note that the main additional feature of any room category attracting a supplement may often be its view and that this will not necessarily include additional internal room facilities or amenities. Room upgrade supplements are normally detailed on the hotel pages, but occasionally you may see the phrase on request which means that we will have to contact the hotel for up-to-date prices. Hotel facilities normally incur a charge eg sun loungers, tennis, squash, mini-golf, pool table, watersports, entry to disco/nightclub, use of fitness/leisure and spa facilities, children’s clubs, cots, safety deposit boxes and car parking. Air-conditioning Most hotels offer in-room air-conditioning although this may be controlled centrally and might only be available at certain times of the year or subject to the prevailing weather. Check in/out & duration of holiday On arrival at hotels, check in time is normally 4pm and check out 12 noon. Most hotels can provide luggage storage and changing room facilities if you arrive earlier or stay later, and you may be able to pay locally for a late check out from your room. The number of nights on your confirmation invoice refers to the number of nights reserved for you in your hotel. If you arrive very late at night or in the early hours of the morning, your accommodation is immediately available as it will have been reserved for the whole night and this will count as one of your holiday nights.

Meal arrangements Full board normally consists of breakfast, lunch and dinner; half board is breakfast and dinner. Breakfasts are normally served buffet style. Full board or half board arrangements are generally served in the main dining room and are based on a standard table d’hote menu although this normally includes a choice of dishes. Many hotels offer buffet style meals and some a combination of waiter and buffet service. A full a la carte menu is available for an extra cost in most of our hotels and customers should note that when half or full board is offered as a la carte dining, exclusions such as lobster, prawns etc may be available for a local supplement. Most hotels offer the option of booking any number of nights on half or full board so that you can pay in the UK and decide which nights you wish to eat at the hotel when you arrive: simply ask our reservations staff for details. All inclusive arrangements vary widely between hotels and where this concept is offered, it is wise to check specific details at booking stage as many hotels only include local spirits and wines and may limit your choice of restaurant or dining room. As with meal arrangements (above), if a full a la carte menu or restaurant is not included within the all inclusive concept, it may be available for an additional cost and exclusions such as lobster, prawns etc may be available for a local supplement. Dress code Due to the sophisticated nature of many of our hotel restaurants, shorts and t-shirts are unacceptable for evening dining and slightly more formal attire is recommended. Formal dress is normally required for gala dinners and if you’d like to find out further details of dress codes at a particular hotel, simply contact our reservations team. Children & infants To take advantage of children’s prices, a child must normally be aged 2-11 years at the date of return and must share a room with two adults or full fare paying passengers, although some hotels offer special reductions for a second child sharing the room, or for older children, or for a child travelling with one adult, or where children share an interconnecting room. Children paying child prices can normally benefit from reduced half board supplements (when booking same board basis as adults) and will not normally be charged room supplements although if these are payable, relevant prices will be advised at time of booking. Normally children staying in their own room will be charged as full fare paying passengers including relevant room and half board supplements. Please note that infants and children’s dates of birth (on the date of return from holiday) must be advised on the booking form. Infants (under two years of age at date of return) pay a charge to cover our administration costs and additional charges may be levied for certain flights, inter-island connections or business class cabins. Hotels will charge locally for food and cots. Please note that the regulations applied to the manufacture

104

of cots in other countries are not as high as those in the UK and may not conform to British safety standards. Child seats Although we can request child seats for private transfers in resort, they cannot always be guaranteed and in such cases we suggest that you bring your own. Babysitting arrangements are available at many properties although the service will vary and the sitter may not remain in the room with the child. If you wish to use a babysitting service, you must arrange and pay for it locally with the sitter who is frequently a member of the hotel staff not qualified in child care. Health & safety All our properties are checked regularly for compliance in respect of local regulations. However, guests must exercise caution particularly with regard to fire safety, swimming pools, balconies, lifts etc, where compliance may not be equal to British standards. Resort development may be in progress and occasionally the work involved will result in building work being in evidence. We cannot forewarn of all developments, however, if the works taking place, either through noise or other inconvenience, is felt by us to affect your overall holiday enjoyment, we will supply all such information to you directly or via your travel agent. Many of our resorts are in popular holiday destinations which invariably have busy road networks so you may encounter some traffic disturbance especially during peak season. Representation Due to the specialist nature of our programme it is not always practical to visit our guests in their hotel especially during multi-centres, island hopping or fly drive holidays. All customers will be given emergency contact numbers and departure details will be confirmed on arrival in resort. Our resort representative or local agent will normally make contact within 24 hours of your arrival to ensure that everything is in order, although should you encounter any difficulties during your stay, please contact your hotel manager in the first instance, and if further assistance is required, simply contact our resort manager or local agent who will endeavour to resolve the problem.

100% FINANCIAL PROTECTION All the ex-UK flight inclusive holidays within this brochure are financially protected by the ATOL scheme under ATOL number 5837. When you pay you will be supplied with an ATOL certificate (for further information about financial protection please see our booking conditions and www.atol.org.uk).

Additionally we have recently formed an association with Travelife; a global sustainability organisation which works closely with hotels helping them to improve their social, economic and environmental impacts.

Booking conditions Our commitment to you 1. Provision of your holiday We will arrange for the provision to you of the services which make up the inclusive holiday as confirmed to you. These services will be provided either directly by us or by independently contracted suppliers. When you, or your travel agent, ask for your holiday booking to be confirmed, we allocate your chosen holiday to you and give confirmation of the booking at that moment. It is then that a firm contract exists between you and Classic Collection Holidays Limited (Registered in England no. 1512421) on the basis of these booking conditions. This also acts as your acceptance of our booking conditions and your holiday is secured from that moment. If your holiday includes flight arrangements, you will be issued with an ATOL certificate immediately and, in any event, you will receive a holiday confirmation invoice verifying the details. All holidays and offers, including but not limited to Classic Value offers, advertised in the brochure are subject to availability and are as confirmed to you by telephone or on your Holiday Confirmation Invoice. 2. Your holiday price A. When you book All prices, supplements and offers shown in this brochure are based on costs at time of printing (19 October 2018) although we reserve the right to amend all prices, supplements and offers (up or down) when we receive notification of new costs. Hotels practice fluid pricing which means that costs may significantly increase during periods of high demand. Classic Value may not be available where we have exceeded our contractually pre-allocated rooms at certain hotels. Prices in this brochure include airline rates applicable at the time of printing and are subject to change. The government charges a levy to cover financial protection in the event of an airline failure and we automatically add this to your invoice total at the booking stage. Once you have confirmed your holiday booking, the price is protected subject to clause 2D of these booking conditions. Please note that not all hotel features detailed are complimentary, and some are subject to seasonal demand. B. VAT and Exchange rates Our VAT Registration number is 503 944 749 and all prices quoted in this brochure include VAT where relevant (at 20% at time of going to press). The brochure prices of holidays were calculated using exchange rates quoted in the Financial Times Guide to World Currencies on 18 September 2018 in relation to the following currencies: Euro 1.1228, US Dollar 1.3144 Please note a) these rates are not comparable with note or tourist rates which are quoted in national newspapers b) hotel costs, transfers, resort representation, excursions, local taxes and part of the flight cost are typically paid in the currency of your holiday destination country. Aviation fuel is paid in US Dollars. All of these costs are affected by changes in the cost of buying foreign currency, as per exchange rates listed above. We reserve the right to increase our prices in accordance with these booking conditions. C. Price Promise If you can find the same flight inclusive holiday at a cheaper price at the time that you book, we undertake to match the price and will give an additional £10 per adult saving off any competitor’s price. In order to take advantage of our Price Promise, the component parts of the relevant holiday must be identical and we reserve the right to request confirmation in writing of the relevant competitor’s holiday price. Our Price Promise cannot be actioned retrospectively after a booking has been made, and it is only available on new bookings made during the validity of this brochure. Unfortunately we cannot always match prices where we believe our competitors have made a pricing error or where they are offering the holiday arrangements at a price below their operating costs. If a competitor’s price is greater than £150 per adult and/or £50 per child below our

price, we deem one of these two scenarios to be true and will not honour our Price Promise. D. Surcharges (after booking) Once you have booked, the price of your holiday travel arrangements may be varied due to changes in transportation costs such as fuel, scheduled airfares and any other airline cost changes which are part of the contract between airlines (and their agents) and the tour operator or organiser, and also in respect of government action such as changes in VAT or any other government imposed changes. In the case of any small variation, an amount equivalent to 2% of the price of your travel arrangements, and any amendment charges, will be absorbed or retained. For larger variations, this 2% will still be absorbed for increases but not retained from refunds. In either case there will be an administration charge of £1 per person together with an amount to cover agent’s commission. In the unlikely event that this means that you have to pay an increase of more than 8% of the price of your holiday travel arrangements, you may cancel your booking and receive a full refund of all monies paid, except for any amendment charges. Should you decide to cancel for this reason, you must exercise your right to do so within 14 days from the issue date printed on your final invoice. E. Tourist tax Some regions and cities impose a tourist tax. Amounts often vary between region and hotel star rating and often are payable by customers locally on departure from their hotel. Tourist taxes may be introduced or changed without prior notice and our reservations team are happy to advise current rates where applicable. 3. If your booking is changed It is unlikely that your booking will have to be changed, but we do plan the arrangements many months in advance, therefore we reserve the right to do so at any time. Most of these changes are very minor, but where they are major, we will inform you or your travel agent as soon as reasonably possible if there is time before your departure. A major change is one that is made to a major part of your holiday arrangements before departure, such as a change of your departure airport (except between London airports), resort area or time of departure or return by more than twelve hours, or offering accommodation with a lower category rating. If we have to make a major change you have the choice of the following: A accepting the changed arrangements as notified to you, B purchasing another available holiday from us, or C cancelling your holiday and receiving a full refund of all monies paid. Additionally, if we make a major change after you have paid the full balance of your holiday and you accept A, B or C you will be entitled to compensation on the scale shown below. Period before scheduled departure within which a major change is notified to you or your travel agent:

Compensation per adult

Important note Compensation payments do not apply to changes caused by reason of war or threat of war, riot, civil strife, terrorist activity, industrial disputes, natural and nuclear disasters, fire, or other circumstances that may amount to force majeure. 4. If your holiday is cancelled We reserve the right in any circumstance to cancel your holiday and, in this event, we will return to you all money you have paid us or will offer you an alternative holiday of comparable standard to purchase. In no case, except for those beyond our control, will your holiday be cancelled after the balance is paid and in such cases compensation will be paid per clause 3.

5. What happens to complaints Disputes arising out of, or in connection with, this contract which cannot be settled amicably may be referred to arbitration if the customer so wishes, under a special scheme arranged by the Association of British Travel Agents (ABTA) which is approved by the Chartered Trading Standards Institute. The ABTA scheme provides for a relatively simple and inexpensive method of arbitration on documents alone with restricted liability on the customer with regards to cost. Under the scheme, customers must pursue their claim within 12 months of the date of return from their holiday. (Outside this time limit, arbitration under the scheme may still be available if the Company agrees, although the ABTA scheme does not require such agreement). The scheme does not apply to claims for amounts greater than £5,000 per person or £25,000 per booking, neither does it apply to claims which are solely in respect of physical injury or illness or their consequences. However, the scheme can deal with compensation claims which include an element of minor injury or illness subject to a per person limit of £1,500 on the personal injury or illness element of the claim. Full details can be provided by us or www.abta.com 6. Our responsibility for your holiday We accept responsibility for ensuring that all component parts of the inclusive holiday, limited to items included on confirmation invoice, and subject to the paragraph entitled Air Passenger Rights below, are supplied to you as described in this brochure and to a reasonable standard. If any such part is not provided to your satisfaction due to the fault of our employees, agents, or suppliers, we will pay you appropriate compensation if this has affected the enjoyment of your holiday (see Important note in paragraph 3 above). Our liability in this respect is limited to a maximum of three times the value of the holiday. We must ask you however, to be patient and understanding in the event of unforeseen alterations to your holiday made by our suppliers over whom we have no direct control. Air Passenger Rights Under EU law 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 is the responsibility of the airline and 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 paragraph 3. If your airline does not comply with these rules you can make a complaint via the Civil Aviation Authority www.CAA.co.uk 7. Excursions (whilst participating in arrangements made by us) Excursions or other tours that you may choose to book or pay for whilst you are on holiday are not part of the holiday provided by us. For any excursion or other tour that you book, your contract is with the operator of the excursion or tour and not with us and we are not responsible for the provision of the excursion or tour or for anything that happens during the course of its provision. 8. Personal Injury (whilst participating in arrangements made by us) We have taken all reasonable and proper steps to ensure that proper arrangements have been made for all the holidays which are advertised in this brochure and that the suppliers of the various services which will be provided to you as part of the inclusive holiday are efficient, safe and reputable businesses, and that they comply with the local and national laws and regulations of the country in which they provide those services. We have no direct control over the provision of services to customers by suppliers. However, subject to the Notes below, we will pay to our customers the equivalent of such damages as they would be entitled to receive under English law in an English Court for

any airport I any airline I any day & duration

any personal injury to the customer, including illness or death, caused by the negligence, as understood in English Law, of the servants or agents of ourselves or of any of our suppliers contracted or sub-contracted by us to provide any part of the arrangements for your holiday as described in this brochure. With regard to any relevant international convention for example, the Montreal Convention in respect of travel by air, the Athens Convention in respect of travel by sea, the Berne Convention in respect of travel by rail, and the Paris Convention in respect of the provision of accommodation, which limit the amount of compensation that you can claim for death, injury, delay to passengers and loss, damage and delay to luggage, we are to be regarded as having all benefit of any limitation of compensation contained in these or any conventions. Copies of these can be made available on request. 9. Personal Injury (unconnected with travel arrangements made by us) If you, or any member of your party, suffer death, illness or injury whilst overseas arising out of an activity which does not form part of your holiday arrangements or an excursion arranged through us, we shall at our discretion, offer advice, guidance and assistance. Where legal action is contemplated and you want our assistance, you must obtain our written consent prior to commencement of proceedings. Our consent will be given subject to you undertaking to assign any costs or benefits received, under any relevant insurance policy to ourselves. We limit the cost of our assistance to you or any member of your party to £5,000. Under your travel insurance cover, you must make an insurance claim under the legal expenses section in respect of any legal fees incurred abroad for that purpose. Notes in respect of paragraphs 8 & 9 We would request that you (a) notify us of any claim for personal injury within 2 months of your return from holiday; (b) assign to Classic Collection Holidays any rights against a supplier or any other person or party you may have relating to the claim; and (c) agree to co-operate fully with us should our insurers wish to enforce those rights. This assignment is necessary to enable us to try to recover from suppliers any compensation paid to customers and associated costs as a result of personal injury to customers caused by the negligence of those suppliers. It is not our wish to profit from such assignment, and in the unlikely event of our recovering more than such compensation and costs, any excess will be paid to the injured customers.

hold that money as our agent from the time they receive it until they pay it to us. Deposits and balances paid to us can be made by bank transfer, cheque or card. 3. If you change your booking If you want to change any details of your booking (eg transfer to a different holiday, substitution of a passenger, departure date or airport), we will do our best to help as soon as we receive your request in writing. We charge an amendment fee of £25 per person named on the booking form for each detail of the booking to be changed and, in addition to the amendment fee, we will charge for any additional costs we incur in making the amendment/s. You should give us reasonable notice of changes and please note that it is highly likely that amendment costs will increase the closer the change is made to your departure date. If amendments to a booking are made, and the booking is subsequently cancelled, we reserve the right to charge the original cancellation charges that would have been payable prior to the amendment.

1. Your holiday contract As soon as your holiday booking is confirmed, you must sign a booking form accepting our booking conditions. Your contract is made on the terms of these booking conditions which are governed by English law and the jurisdiction of the English Courts. You may however choose the law and jurisdiction of Scotland or Northern Ireland if you wish to do so. Any disputes arising will be heard in the English Courts unless you prefer the courts of Scotland or Northern Ireland. 2. Payment for the holiday You pay a deposit of £150 per person (or an agreed sum to cover non-refundable flight seats and/or hotel or other costs) when you book. This is your commitment until 8 weeks before departure when your final balance is due. You must pay the balance at least 8 weeks before departure. For bookings within 8 weeks of departure, full payment is required at time of booking. If payment is not received as above, we reserve the right to treat your booking as cancelled and your deposit/s would be forfeited. If you pay a travel agent for your holiday they will

IMPORTANT

Some arrangements (eg flights purchased from certain airlines and certain hotel bookings or other costs) may not be refundable or transferable after a reservation has been made and any alteration request may incur a cancellation charge of up to 100% of that particular part of the holiday arrangements. Where the price varies depending on the number of persons travelling and the numbers are amended, the price will be recharged on the basis of the new party size. Any increase in price per person payable as a result of a part cancellation is not a cancellation charge and will not normally be covered by your chosen insurance. A separate cancellation charge will be levied in respect of bookings cancelled in accordance with paragraph 4 below. A new confirmation invoice will be issued as appropriate on which the cancellation charges will be shown. 4. If you cancel your booking You or any member of your party may cancel your booking, or part of it, once it has been confirmed, but the instructions will only be valid if in writing and signed by the person who confirmed the booking. Your written instructions should go either to the travel agent you booked with, asking them to notify us immediately, or if you booked direct, to our address. To compensate us for the expense of processing your booking, payment of cancellation fees are on the scale shown. The amount payable depends on when we receive your written instructions.

5. If you have a complaint If you have a complaint about your holiday please refer the matter to the supplier immediately (airline, hotel, car hire company etc). If further assistance is required our agent/representative in resort should be contacted. Matters can most easily be resolved for you on the spot when the supplier can see and understand the exact nature of any problems you have. It is unreasonable to take no action whilst on holiday, then complain afterwards. In the unlikely event that matters cannot be resolved to your satisfaction our agent/representative will ask you to record details on a holiday report form of which you will be given a copy, and you must then follow up your report by writing to our Customer Relations team within 28 days of returning from resort.

6. Holiday illness If you, or any member of your party, become unwell whilst on holiday you must consult a local doctor in order to receive appropriate treatment and to obtain a full medical report. You must also report your illness as soon as reasonably practicable to our local or telephone agent/representative, the contact details of whom can be found on your travel documents. Notes in respect of paragraphs 5 & 6 Failure to follow the procedures set out in paragraphs 5 and 6 above may reduce or extinguish any rights you have to claim compensation from us or any of our suppliers either in accordance with these booking conditions or otherwise. 7. Holiday participation We reserve the right to decline to accept or retain any person as a customer if their conduct is disruptive and affects the enjoyment of other holidaymakers, and we shall be under no liability for any extra costs incurred by such a person as a result of our doing so. Aircraft captains are legally entitled to deny boarding to any passenger presenting themselves at the aircraft who, at the captain’s absolute discretion, are unacceptably under the influence of alcohol or drugs. Any passenger who is denied boarding on the outbound flight for that reason, shall be deemed to have given notice of cancellation of his/her booking at that moment, and cancellation charges will apply in accordance with paragraph 4. 8. Your accommodation The accommodation provided is only for the use of passengers shown on the confirmation invoice as confirmed by us; subletting, sharing or assignment is prohibited. 9. Your travel ticket conditions When you travel with an air or sea or rail carrier, their conditions of carriage apply, some of which limit liability. These conditions are often the subject of international agreements between countries, and copies of the conditions which apply are available for inspection at the travel agent where you book your holiday. 10. Travel Insurance It is a condition of booking with us that you and all members of your booking are adequately insured on holiday and that the insurance is suitable for your needs and the type of activities you will be undertaking as part of your holiday. We reserve the right to request written details of such policy. You are responsible for indemnifying us in full in the event that we incur any losses or expenses arising out of your failure to take out adequate insurance cover. 11. Data Protection & GDPR Classic Collection Holidays is registered under the Data Protection Act 1988 and deals with all personal data in accordance therewith. It is, of course, necessary for us to pass personal data to airlines, hotels, transportation companies, insurers and other agents in order that we can arrange your holiday. By confirming a booking with us, you have consented to allow the passing on of such data as we determine necessary for that purpose. Under the Data Protection Act, you have the right to inspect relevant personal information held by us. From 25 May 2018, the General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR) came into force and relevant information including our role as data controller, is detailed in the privacy policy statement on our website.

These flights may restrict your holiday duration to 7 or 14 nights, but we know that to fly direct to your holiday destination from your local airport is normally preferable.
