Cancellation charges as % of full price
More than 30 days
50 € per person
No refund can be given for a cancellation 14 or less days before the start of a holiday or whilst the holiday is in progress. These cancellation fees are implemented in all cases, so we recommend that you are fully covered by a comprehensive travel insurance policy.
Website/Brochure information: The information given in this website/brochure has been carefully checked and we believe that it is correct at the time of publication. We reserve the right to make changes and where they occur, they will be advised to you before the booking contract is concluded. If there are any changes to the published prices, these will be confirmed at the time of booking.
Changes or cancellation by us: Very occasionally we must make changes to a holiday after a booking has been confirmed or cancel confirmed bookings. Whilst we always endeavor to avoid changes and cancellations, we must reserve the right to do so. If we have to cancel your holiday or make a notable change before departure, we will tell you as soon as possible and you will have the choice of:
- (a) accepting the changed arrangements or
- (b) taking an alternative holiday (and where this is of a lower price we will refund the difference, but where the price is higher, we may ask you to pay the difference) or
- (c) cancelling or accepting the cancellation and receiving a full refund of all monies paid.
Complaints and problems: In the unlikely event that you have any reason to complain or experience any problems with your holiday whilst away, you should contact our local representative immediately, who will do their best to resolve the problem straight away. Should it not be possible to resolve your complaint immediately, you should write to us, giving full details, within 14 days of the holiday’s conclusion. Complaints received after this date can be very difficult to investigate.
Authority: We agree that any dispute, claim or other matter of any description which arises between us must be dealt with by the Courts of England and Wales only unless, in the case of Court proceedings, you live in Scotland or Northern Ireland. In this case, proceedings must either be brought in the Courts of your home country or those of England and Wales. If proceedings are brought in Scotland or Northern Ireland, you may choose to have your contract and any dispute, claim or other matter of any description which arises between us governed by the law of Scotland/Northern Ireland as applicable (but if you do not so choose, English law will apply).
Insurance: We strongly recommend that you protect yourself, your equipment and luggage with a suitable holiday insurance policy. This insurance should also be arranged to cover non-returnable costs should you have to cancel your trip due to unexpected personal circumstances.
Finally: Your booking is accepted on the basis of the above conditions.
