My contract with you takes effect when I send you written booking confirmation. In parties of two or more people, the person who makes the booking by signing my booking form or otherwise contracting with me, accepts responsibility for making all payments to me for all members of the party.

When booking a non-refundable you need to pay a deposit of at least 10% per person (or a minimum of EURO 100 per person or equivalent). I send a booking confirmation with no reminder. Payment of the balance is due fifty-six days before the holiday starts. If this payment is not received I reserve the right to treat your booking as a cancellation and to levy cancellation charges accordingly.
Bookings made four weeks or less before the holiday start date must include full payment.
I reserve the right to raise or lower my prices at any time before you book. If at the time of booking the holiday / course price has changed from that shown in any leaflet or brochure or website you will be told the revised price applicable to your booking before you commit yourself.
Some tours require minimum numbers in order for them to run. Where this is the case you will be notified on the booking confirmation.
