If 2020 has taught us anything it’s how unpredictable life can be.  One moment we are looking forward to the summer, to holiday escapes and fun times. Then all of a sudden we are experiencing lock downs and isolation and the world as we know it has been turned upside down.

We know that many people are becoming ‘armchair’ travellers during this unplanned period of down time, but we also appreciate that there will be many factors being taken into account before bookings are made. We understand that this is an uncertain time when it comes to making travel plans and that the situation is constantly changing around the world day to day. So whilst your travel plans may be on pause, the time will come when you will be ready again to travel and explore. But even then we also understand that you may still need to change your plans.

That is why we are introducing our Book Now, Pay Later, Cancel for Free Policy.
This we believe is a commitment free way to make plans but remain flexible.  We accept your booking and a fully refundable 10% deposit, you pay the balance at any time you want up to 7 days prior to your trip. Secure your booking with ease, remain flexible and never be out of pocket.
