Covid-19 Update

January 20, 2021

2021 booking assurance

We will continue offering flexibility on all bookings for 2021. You can book your holiday knowing that if a trip can’t be run we will transfer your booking to an alternative trip or refund your money whichever is most convenient. We were very pleased that the vast majority of people booked this year on trips that had to be cancelled carried their bookings forward, and those that couldn’t had their money refunded immediately. This unlike a lot of other travel companies that you may have read about!

 

And a reminder that your money is fully protected by our bonds with ATOL and ABTOT.

Office is closed

We continue to adhere to PHE guidance, so our offices are currently closed and we are working from home. Our phone lines are open but the best way to
get in touch is to email us and we will get back to you.

Covid 19 update

We were very pleased to be able to run our NC500 trip in September. This was a chance to run the trip with the new standard operating procedures (SOP’s) in place, which is looking likely to be the ‘new normal’ at least for the foreseeable future. Ken and Ang led the trip successfully despite the good old Scottish weather throwing all it could at us.

 

We followed all the conditions each of our accommodations required and our small group size, limiting the group to 12, meant that social distancing was not a great problem. We also altered our lunch arrangements with more pre-prepared  sandwiches and making use of café’s where possible. We will endeavour to make our trips as safe but still as enjoyable as we can.

 

2021 bookings

Given the present uncertainty we are offering flexibility on all bookings for 2021. You can book your holiday in full confidence knowing that if a trip can’t be run we will transfer your booking to a new trip or refund your money whichever is most convenient. We were very pleased that the vast majority of people booked this year on trips that had to be cancelled carried their booking forward to next year. And those that couldn’t had their money refunded immediately. This unlike a lot of other travel companies that you will have read about!

And a reminder that your money is fully protected by our bonds with ATOL and ABTOT.

There are more UK holidays planned for next year with the introduction of a Wales End to End and Tour of the North alongside our ever popular NC500 and LeJog trips. There are spaces available on most departures, see the trip pages for details.

We are in this together.

 

July 09, 2020 COVID 19
Things have changed since our last communication, with lockdown eased and travel possible again we have looked at which holidays we are able to run for the remainder of this year. Mainland European trips are still problematic so we have decided to postpone them until 2021 and as we write we do intend to run our UK trips in September, the NC500 and LeJog, more info below. We have a trip in India, Mumbai to Goa, planned for November and we will be keeping an eye on developments there to see if that is still possible.
So while it is better news regarding Coronavirus cases in the UK the threat is far from over and we have to be ready for any future recurrence. We are continually monitoring the situation and will follow guidance from public health officials and government agencies and our trips will be run within safety guidelines. We are working on what changes we need to make to our procedures to keep our guests and crew safe.
We would again like to thank all of you who have agreed to carry bookings forward to future departures, it has helped us a lot and we are very grateful for your support.
Our 2021 dates are live on our website, see the link below, so please go ahead and plan your holiday for next year, and be assured there is complete flexibility on your booking should circumstances change and trips can’t go ahead. Just to remind you that any money we hold is fully protected by our membership of ATOL and ABTOT.
Our office is still open with reduced hours and we are mostly working from home. We are still answering the telephone but email us and we can reply more promptly.
Do look after yourselves
