1. YOUR CONTRACT WITH US
(a) Group Payment: An initial deposit of 25% can be made to secure a booking, followed by one payment for the entire group before the due date, made by the Group Leader only. If the commencement date of the booking is within 30 days, full payment must be made at time of booking.
2.1 Balance payments are due no less than 28 days prior to commencement of the arrangements booked. Your booking may be cancelled if full payment is not received by the due date, in which case deposit and part payments will be forfeited. A charge of £20 will be made for any balances paid after the due date. We will not be liable for any changes that may have to be made as a subsequence of late payments if, at our discretion, we agree to operate the tour or itinerary should payments be late. Late payments may adversely affect the arrangements of the tour or itinerary, and in such cases we will not be held responsible.
