Once all passengers are on board, if there are any spare seats on the coach and you wish to move, please feel free to do so. When the vehicle is in motion, the wearing of seatbelts is a mandatory requirement, as is our Non-Smoking policy (including electronic e-cigarettes). We kindly ask that mobile phones be used in emergencies only whilst the vehicle is in motion. For the comfort of our passengers, we will include regular comfort breaks throughout the journey.

Hotels & dining
All of our hotels are carefully selected and you should expect to find all bedrooms with private en-suite facilities. The board basis will be either DB&B (dinner, bed and breakfast) or B&B (bed and breakfast), and items such as leisure facilities, entertainment, etc, are described where applicable.
Any special request should be advised to us at the point of booking, especially so in the case of those with limited mobility. Please consider that, as most of our customers book by telephone, if this information is not forthcoming our staff cannot ascertain if a chosen holiday is suitable for your mobility level and ensure your holiday is successful. Whilst we will endeavour to do all possible to satisfy any special request, please be aware that this is a request only, unless it has been guaranteed in writing with the hotel.
Itineraries & attractions
All holiday inclusions are listed on our website and then re-confirmed to you when you receive your travel documents. As the holidays are packaged many months, and sometimes over a year, in advance of departure, on rare occasions we may be forced to amend an itinerary or change an attraction. In such instances, we will always do our best to provide a like for like alternative and advise you as soon as possible.
If you become lost whilst on tour, we advise that you contact our office on 01253 725999 so that we can inform your driver and help you relocate the coach (listen to the end of the answering machine message for our emergency contact number if calling outside of office hours). We request that you provide us with a mobile phone number in advance of travel and keep your mobile phone switched on for the duration of the excursion so that we can contact you in this event. We kindly request that you also provide us with your emergency contact details. This is the name and telephone number of a friend or family member (somebody who is not travelling with you) that we could contact in the event of an emergency whilst you are on tour.
We recommend that you take some form of Photographic Identification with you on holiday (i.e. Passport, Bus Pass, or Drivers License). In some cases, Photo ID will be a requirement, for example, where there are ferry crossings, flights, EU travel, or visits to RAF bases or royal residences. This will be advised to you in writing when you receive your booking confirmation.
