Your health and safety is our top priority. We are fully aware how special your travels are to you and believe it is our responsibility to deliver a safe, successful and enjoyable experience when we are able to do so and when you feel comfortable to travel again. We are planning for the future with cautious optimism: we will be posting our schedule for all of 2021 and where possible 2022 and hope we will be able to welcome you on a tour with us in the not too distant future.
As the situation is constantly evolving, we will be guided by FCO advice. Our policy for booking, deposits, tour operation and cancellation will be as follows:
We will take reservations for a future tour to a country with a travel advisory currently in place, in hope that restrictions will be lifted in coming months. For such destinations we will not request a deposit until the tour is deemed viable (a tour may be deemed viable for various reasons, such as the lifting of an FCO advisory, or that the minimum number of participants has been achieved). Simply email us to reserve your place.
For bookings on a tour to any country currently exempt from an FCO travel advisory we will request a deposit as usual. If the FCO subsequently amend their advice to advise against all but essential travel, we will cancel the tour and refund your deposit in full or credit it to a future date.
We will run any tour with operational status if non-essential travel to the tour destination remains permitted by the FCO. Cancellation charges will apply according to our Terms and Conditions.
