Drover Holidays Booking Conditions
We put a lot of effort into making your holiday an enjoyable and memorable experience. Please take a minute to read through the following conditions, before you proceed with your booking. The Booking Conditions outline the rights and obligations of the customer and those of Drover Holidays.
- 1.YOUR CONTRACT WITH US
A written booking confirmation will be sent to you in the post or by email. Please check the details carefully. Your holiday is not confirmed until we send this booking confirmation, at which stage a binding contract is made between you and Drover Holidays.
You must pay a deposit in order to confirm your holiday - £75 per person for short breaks (up to 3 nights) and £100 per person for longer holidays (4 or more nights). The balance is payable 10 weeks before departure. If a booking is made within 8 weeks of departure, the full balance must be paid at the time of booking.
Failure to pay the balance within 10 weeks of departure will result in cancellation of your holiday.
Please note that an additional processing fee may apply depending upon method of payment. The fees are waived for deposits but apply to all balance payments:
Cheque - no processing fee
Debit card - no processing fee
BACS/bank transfer - no processing fee. But please note that your own bank may charge you for arranging the transfer
Credit card (Mastercard or Visa) - 2%
American Express - 3%
Paypal - 4%
We recommend you take out travel insurance to adequately cover yourself while on holiday. It is your responsibility to ensure that the policy covers you for walking and/or cycling.
- 4.BICYCLES AND ASSOCIATED GEAR (CYCLING TOURS ONLY)
The bicycle let out on hire, including all accessories and attachments supplied herewith remains the property of Drover Holidays and you must not sell, hire out or lend the bicycle.
The bicycle is supplied in good condition, and you must undertake not to misuse it, and to return it with all accessories in the same condition as when received (ordinary wear and tear excepted) to the place and on the due date and time agreed.
We reserve the right to charge you for all damage caused to the bicycle during the period of your holiday. A full schedule of damage costs is available on request.
- 5.CHANGING YOUR HOLIDAY
If you wish to change your holiday, we will do our best to accommodate your requirements depending on availability. An administration fee of £15 per booking is payable for alterations. If your changes involve upgraded accommodation, you will be asked to pay the additional cost.
- 6.CANCELLING YOUR HOLIDAY
You must inform us in writing if you wish to cancel your holiday. A sliding scale of cancellation fees applies to your holiday:
Cancellation more than 42 days prior to departure: loss of deposit
Cancellation between 42 and 28 days of departure: 50% of holiday cost
Cancellation between 28 and 14 days of departure: 65% of holiday cost
Cancellation between 14 and 3 days of departure: 80% of holiday cost
Cancellation within 3 days of departure: 100% of holiday cost
- 7.CHANGES AND CANCELLATIONS BY US
We reserve the right to cancel, amend or alter your holiday at any time. Where this is necessary, you will be offered an alternative holiday or a full refund on your booking.
We cannot compensate you for the cost of travel or accommodation in connection with your holiday which you have not booked through us.
- 8.CHANGES FOR REASONS BEYOND OUR CONTROL
We cannot accept liability or pay any compensation for any cancellation, amendment or alteration due to forces beyond our control, including but not limited to war or threat of war, riot, civil strife, terrorist activity (actual or threatened), industrial dispute, natural or nuclear disaster, fire, outbreak of an epidemic or epizootic, bad weather and all other events which we could not, with all reasonable care, have foreseen or avoided.
Our holidays do not require specialist knowledge or high levels of proficiency in cycling or walking. However, if we are not satisfied that you are a sufficiently competent cyclist or believe you are medically unfit, we reserve the right to refuse to provide you with a bicycle. To avoid unnecessary risk and discomfort to you, we may suggest an easier grade holiday or a tailor-made route.
Walking, Cycling and Mountain Biking, in common with other adventurous outdoor activities, are potentially hazardous pursuits. While we do everything possible to reduce this risk to an acceptable level (by ensuring those responsible for your safety are appropriately trained/qualified/experienced, by maintaining our equipment in good working order, and by adhering to safety guidelines & best practice) it is not possible to eliminate the risk entirely. (If it were, these would not be "adventurous activities".) By booking with us, you acknowledge these risks, and agree to follow guidance given by our staff in order to ensure your safety.
- 12.COMPLAINTS PROCEDURE
In the unlikely event that you are dissatisfied with Drover Holidays and have reason for complaint, please contact us immediately so that we can address your concerns. Please ensure any verbal complaints are also put in writing and sent to our office within 28 days of your return.
