Tour information


All hotels on this website are of good quality. Our price includes accommodation with bath or shower and W.C. Where we state a hotel is situated on the seafront, your room may not have a sea view.

Important – Continental Hotels

Please note it is most unlikely for hotels on the Continent to provide tea/coffee making facilities in bedrooms. Occasionally we receive comments relating to the standard of food served for the evening meals. We can only emphasise that when travelling abroad, the menus offered are normally associated with the country in which you are staying. In addition whilst we endeavour to ensure that our clients receive a choice of menu for the evening dinner there are a number of hotels, particularly on the Continent, where this facility is not offered.


Seats are bookable on all tours on a first come first served basis. Those passengers who prefer to sit at the front are strongly advised to book early.

Special Diets

These can normally be provided for, please ask at the time of booking.

Special Requests

These are dealt with seriously and while every effort is made to grant your request, it unfortunately CANNOT BE GUARANTEED.

Single Rooms

Only a limited number of single rooms are available on each tour, so we advise that you book early.


For all Continental Holidays you will require a full 10 year British Passport. Passengers who are not British Citizens may require visas.

Non Smoking Policy

The entire coach interior is designated a NON SMOKING AREA on all Holidays, Tours and Day Excursions shown on this website. We will however make courtesy stops to ensure that any smokers amongst our clients are not inconvenienced.


We recommend that you take Travel Insurance, however this does not have to be through ourselves.

Website Accuracy & Alterations

We do accept that in a changing world no website can be totally accurate. We make every effort to present a fair description on our website. The Company reserves the right to alter the contents of the tour without prior notification. The Company also reserves the right to cancel a tour due to lack of numbers etc.


We welcome disabled people on our holidays, but please check carefully if hotel steps or other matters are a problem for you. We will gladly take folding wheelchairs, but only if space is booked and the person is not travelling alone.
