Book with Confidence

We appreciate that making plans at this time of uncertainty is difficult, so please be assured that should we have to cancel the holidays as a result of Covid-19, a full refund of any monies paid (including the deposit) will be made. All fees are held in a ring-fenced account to ensure we can make this guarantee.

We are now members of PTS to provide protection for fees paid – more details in terms and conditions.
