How to Book
We accept bookings online if you visit a trip page and click on the Book Now button beside the departure date you’d like to travel on. Booking online is straightforward and enables us to confirm your reservation immediately. We also accept bookings by telephone, email, fax and post.
Please note that online booking is possible for our fixed date small group trips and our self-guided trips. If you would like to book a private or tailor-made trip, then we need to develop the trip with you – please contact us by telephone or complete our tailor made enquiry form.
Prior to booking, it is important that you read the relevant Trip Dossier and our Booking Terms and Conditions. This information will ensure that you choose the most appropriate trip. In the case of a tailor-made trip, we recommend that you carefully review the personalised itinerary provided to you. If you have any doubts regarding your suitability for a trip, please contact our office.
To book online, simply select the “Book Now” tab from the relevant trip page on our website. You will then be asked to complete the online booking form and proceed to payment. All payments made are completely secure and processed by Protx using 128-bit SSL encrypted technology.
For online bookings we accept payment by Maestro, Visa Electron, Visa Debit and Solo debit cards or Visa/Mastercard credit cards. Please note that there is no charge for payment by UK debit card but a 2.0% surcharge for payment by all credit cards and non-UK debit cards. A deposit of 25% is required at the time of booking unless you are booking less than 56 days before departure. In this case, full payment of the trip price is required.
If you prefer, you can make a booking over the phone and pay your deposit using your debit or credit card. This will enable us to confirm your place immediately in most cases. If booking by post, we accept all of the above payment methods plus cheque. Bank transfers can be used for balance payments.
Your Financial Protection
This is guaranteed through either our Air Tour Organisers Licence (ATOL No. 6850) or our bond with the Association of British Travel Agents (ABTA).
All the flights and flight-inclusive holidays on this website – are financially protected by the ATOL scheme. When you pay you will be supplied with an ATOL Certificate. Please ask for it and check to ensure that everything you booked (flights, hotels and other services) is listed on it. Please see our booking conditions for further information or for more information about financial protection and the ATOL Certificate go to: www.atol.org.uk/ATOLCertificate
For trips that do not include air travel, your financial protection is covered by our bond with ABTA. In the unlikely event of financial failure before departure, the appropriate bond will be applied to the refund of your trip payments. If the trip is underway, the bond will be applied to complete the trip or, if this is not possible, you will be repatriated to the UK.
Confirmation of your Booking
If booking online, your place is secured immediately and you will be sent a trip dossier and balance invoice by email. However, please do not book travel until one of our team contacts you – this will happen within 72 hours. If booking by any other method, we will confirm your booking within 7 days of receipt.
It is your responsibility to ensure that you are insured against medical and personal accident risks. This must include cover for the activities to be undertaken during the trip. We also recommend that you take out insurance which includes cancellation and baggage cover.
We recommend Journeyman Services Insurance whose policies are suitable for all our trips and available to persons living anywhere in the world.
