CHANGES BY US
Sometimes it may be necessary at short notice to make changes to an itinerary or hotel etc. If a hotel change is involved we will endeavour to offer you a similar standard hotel and keep you informed
of any changes. Occasionally we may have to alter timings, routes, itineraries or hotels; if this is necessary then inconvenience will be kept to a minimum.

tour. Compensation is not payable in the event of us cancelling a tour where the number of people booked on the tour does not reach the required minimum or for unforeseeable circumstances

It is important that, if you are unhappy with any aspect of your holiday, you raise the matter at the time with the coach driver or accommodation provider. If they are unable to resolve the problem to
your satisfaction, you must contact this office immediately. If you fail to do this, thereby failing to give us an opportunity to rectify the matter at the time, we cannot accept any responsibility

writing within 14 days of returning home.
OUR LIABILITY TO YOU
We take care to ensure that your holiday will be as enjoyable and safe as possible. If anything goes wrong with your holiday that is directly our fault then we will accept responsibility to compensate
you. We also take responsibility to compensate you if it is the fault of our staff or anyone else providing the holiday to you, and this may include the hotel owner and ferry operator. However, we will
not be responsible where you do not enjoy your holiday or suffer any problems because of a reason you did not tell us about when you booked, or where any problems you suffer did not result from
any breach of contract or other fault on our part or our suppliers', or where any losses, expenses, costs or any other problems relate to any business not connected to ourselves.
Although we endeavour to pass any reasonable requests on to the relevant supplier, we cannot promise that any requests will be honoured. We will not always be able to tell you before you leave if
we cannot meet your special request.
For all European holidays you will require a valid British passport. We cannot be held responsible if passengers are not in possession of the correct travel documents and no refund will be given to
anyone unable to complete their holiday for this reason. The E111 has been changed to the EHIC European Health Insurance Card; please make sure you are in possession of one when travelling
abroad. Please note, on European tours, dinner is normally a 3-course set menu, tea & coffee is not normally provided. Buffet breakfasts may be hot or cold or both. Continental breakfast is usually
croissants, breads, tea and/or coffee. There are normally no tea/coffee making facilities in the bedrooms unless otherwise stated. For all European holidays passengers must have adequate insurance
and full details must be given to us prior to the departure date.
All brochure prices are quoted in pounds sterling. Hotel prices are based on two people sharing accommodation. We reserve the right to make changes & correct errors in advertised prices anytime
before your holiday is confirmed. We reserve the right to increase the cost of your holiday by way of a surcharge if transportation costs, i.e. fuel duties, ferry costs or port taxes increase or as a result
of currency fluctuations. We will always bear the first 2% of any increase.
MINIMUM NUMBERS OF PASSENGERS
Before we can run a holiday there must be enough passengers booked to make it viable, otherwise we may cancel the holiday. In this case we will notify you of this at least seven days before the date
of departure. In most cases we will try to provide an alternative holiday.
Except where otherwise stated we regret that we cannot accept any liability or pay any compensation where the performance of our contractual obligations is prevented or affected, or you otherwise
suffer any damage or loss as a result of "force majeure". In these conditions, "force majeure" means any event which we or the supplier of our services could not, even with all due care, foresee or
avoid. Such events may include war or threat of war, riot, civil strife, actual or threatened terrorist activity, industrial dispute, natural or nuclear disaster, adverse weather conditions, fire and all similar
events outside our control.
PASSENGERS WITH HEALTH CONSIDERATIONS
Please note: our holidays may not be suitable for people with certain disabilities, dietary requirements or medical conditions. If you have a disability, coaches can be difficult to get on and off, and
some of our hotels do not offer ground or lower floor accommodation or lifts and easy access. Should any of your party suffer from any disability or medical condition which may affect their or any
other passengers' holiday, you must provide full written details at the time of booking, including any specific requirements that the person has. Also at the time of booking you must provide that all
assistance the disabled person requires will be provided by you. In view of the nature of the holidays we regret that we must reserve the right to decline any bookings whenever we feel unable to
accommodate the needs of the client where, in our opinion, the medical condition or disability of the client is likely to have a significant effect on other clients taking the same holiday.
PROTECTING YOUR MONEY
When you book with Breaks2Go you are secure in the knowledge that we are trading in full compliance with the EC Directive and under terms laid down by the Department of Trade & Industry. This
involves having a separate "Client Trust Account" controlled by a properly appointed trustee. This means that all money is banked to cover the cost of repatriating any clients from their holiday if
required. This is a method of protection approved by the Department of Trade & Industry and and by the Trading Standards Authority.
