Booking Guide GUIDE TO BOOKING YOUR HOLIDAY Please Read Carefully WHAT WE NEED TO KNOW: When you book your holiday, we need to know, your Name(s), full Address and Telephone number. Should you have any special requests (such as Iow floor rooms, sea view, adjoining rooms) you MUST advise us at the time of booking. We will then pass on your special request to the hotels concerned. We generally receive many requests however, and under no circumstances can we guarantee that they will be met or that the hotel(s) is/are able to provide the requested facility. We cannot, therefore, accept a booking which is made conditional upon a special request being satisfied.
We aim to provide you with the best holiday possible, but in the unlikely event that a problem should arise, you must bring this to the attention of your drivers/hotel manager, so that we can resolve the matter on the spot. WHEELCHAIRS/WALKERS Limited to 4 per tour. These must be flat folding due to space limitations. Please notify our staff at the time of booking if you are taking a wheelchair/walker, no motorised scooters or battery powered wheelchairs allowed. YOUR PICK-UP POINT We offer a door-to-door pick up service on all tours (Subject to areas*) over 4 days in duration unless otherwise stated.
However to reduce costs and time for stays of just 2 or 3 days we have had to introduce a pick up route as follows: BARNSLEY BUS STATION, SHEFFIELD INTERCHANGE (POND ST) AND CHESTERFIELD COACH STATION. For the comfort of all passengers these points must be adhered to and your pick up point must remain the same as your return point.
* Areas included are BARNSLEY, CHESTERFIELD AND THE DEARNE AREA.
