Watch This Space... We continue to research and book exciting and interesting excursions throughout the year, so keep checking our website and look out for our updates. If you have a query regarding a particular show, venue or event please call our sales team on 01243 868080. These trips are some of our most popular, so keep checking for dates and book early to avoid disappointment! Waverley Paddle Steamer

Waverley, one of the world’s greatest historic ships, is the last sea-going paddle steamer in the world, with towering funnels, timber decks, gleaming varnish and brass. Each September the Waverley travels to the South Coast from her home in Scotland and we board at Portsmouth for a fabulous steam cruise around the Isle of Wight.

Mary Poppins at the Prince Edward Theatre

Disney Theatrical Productions and Cameron Mackintosh have announced the return to the West End of the critically acclaimed and internationally award-winning production of Mary Poppins. The show will return to its original West End home at the Prince Edward Theatre in the autumn and will star Zizi Strallen and Charlie Stemp.

Classical Spectacular at The Royal Albert Hall

Tickets for the November concert go on sale in March and always sell fast! We travel to the matinee of this unique performance, celebrating the world’s greatest and best-loved classical music, with state of the art technology, lasers, cannons and fireworks!

Pantomime at The London Palladium

The title of the 2019 pantomime at London’s most famous theatre should be released in the spring. An all-star cast, stunning scenery, fabulous costumes and hilarious comedy make it one of the most hotly anticipated shows of the Christmas season and the demand for tickets is huge!

DAY EXCURSIONS INFORMATION AND ADVICE

CANCELLATIONS

If you need any further information about anything contained in this brochure, please contact our office in Aldwick, by telephone or in person. Further information can also be found on our website: www.woodstravel.co.uk

(A) BY THE COMPANY Should circumstances arise, for whatever reason, and we are forced to cancel an excursion, all monies paid will be refunded by cheque for that particular excursion. We accept no liability for any subsequent consequential loss.

MAKING A BOOKING Bookings can be made by telephone or by visiting our office in Aldwick, or by any of our appointed agents. On most excursions we can hold places on your behalf for 3 days without obligation. After this time, each excursion should be paid in full to complete the booking. If we do not hear from you before this deadline, we will assume that the booking is to be cancelled.

CONFIRMATION OF BOOKING Once you have paid, a confirmation ticket will be issued which acts as a boarding pass on the day of the excursion. It will contain information such as your seat number(s) and pick up time. Return times are also given, but only provide an approximate guideline. We can email these tickets to you, or you can pay a £1 fee per transaction and have the tickets posted to you.

METHOD OF PAYMENT

(B) BY THE PASSENGER The tickets issued are non-refundable and the money is not transferable to another booking. However, should you wish to sell on or give away your excursion tickets, Woods office must be advised and a new ticket will be issued to the new traveller to ensure that all information is correct. If Woods are able to resell your tickets on your behalf there will be a £10 per person charge for this service. It is not always possible to sell on tickets which require photo ID for entry to a venue, such as Highgrove Gardens.

DELAYS We arrange departure times to give reasonable allowance for delays which may be incurred en route to venues. In the event of delays beyond our reasonable control (roadworks, accidents, major incidents etc.), liability is restricted to returning you to your point of departure.

All normal methods of payment including cash are possible at our offices and appointed agents, or by post with a cheque and a self-addressed stamped envelope, or by credit/debit card by telephone. Cheques should be made payable to Woods Travel Ltd.

SHOW CASTINGS

BOARDING THE COACH

PASSENGERS WITH DISABILITIES

Your travel ticket clearly shows the departure point and time. Please check this carefully. You are responsible for ensuring you are at the correct departure point at the correct time, and we cannot be liable for any loss or expense suffered by passengers because of their late arrival at any departure point. The coach will wait 5 minutes only before departing.

Should you or a member of your party have any medical condition or disability that may affect the excursion or theatre booking, please advise us prior to confirming the booking so that we can advise as to the suitability of the trip and/or venue. If a passenger requires assistance then they must travel with an able bodied carer or friend. Please advise us if you intend to bring any walking aids, particularly scooters as only certain models can be accommodated in the hold of the coach. Every effort will be made to accommodate each passenger who wishes to travel.

NON-ARRIVAL OF COACH If the vehicle has not arrived 10 minutes after the due time of departure you must immediately telephone our office where we will advise you of any problem.

Terms & Conditions ALTERATIONS

CONDUCT OF PASSENGERS

We reserve the right to change the coach size for any excursion, which may result in your seat number changing, and although we will always endeavour to keep you in your original booked seat, this may not be possible. Whilst every effort will be made not to alter any part of the excursion, if circumstances are such that alterations are required, we reserve the right to do so. The company gives advice on journey times in good faith, but does not guarantee the completion of any journey at a specific time and will not be liable for loss or inconvenience caused by delay due to traffic conditions, weather etc.

The company reserves the right to refuse to carry any passenger in the event of unreasonable conduct which in our opinion is likely to cause damage, distress, danger or annoyance to other clients, employees, property or to any third party. If you are prevented from travelling or continuing your excursion by such a termination our responsibility for your excursion thereupon ceases. Full cancellation charges will apply and we will be under no obligation for any refund, compensation or loss which may occur.
