On confirmation of availability we will issue you with a booking form for you to check the details of your tour, sign and return to us along with your deposits. We would normally require a deposit of 25% of the total tour cost. For International tours we may require an interim payment before your final balance. You will be advised of the exact date that payments are required on your booking form. Tours with flights that have to paid for at the time of booking will be shown on your provisional booking and will be in addition to the above deposits
Your booking form will advise you of the date when your final balance payment has to be made. (Normally 8-10 weeks before your departure date) By either signing the booking form, confirming in writing to us or by paying a deposit you will have deemed to have accepted the tour and our terms and conditions as set out and will apply. The booking form will form the basis of our contract with you. We will make no verbal agreements; everything will be put in writing to you. Bookings will only be accepted from persons of 18 years of age and over.
When you make a booking, the contract is made with you the first named passenger (lead passenger) being any person travelling or intending to travel on any arrangements operated by the company named above on the terms of these booking conditions. It includes all matters arising from it and is subject to English law and the exclusive jurisdiction of the English courts.
You may however choose the law and jurisdiction of Scotland and Northern Ireland if you wish to do so. No variation of these terms will be valid unless confirmed in writing by us. A contract will exist as soon as we issue our confirmation invoice. By making a booking, the lead passenger confirms that all people’s names in the booking (and their personal representatives) have agreed to be bound by these conditions and the terms of its suppliers.
For bookings at Holiday Parks, one adult is required to be present in each Holiday Villa, Holiday Home or Cottage for the duration of the tour. For safeguarding reasons, we recommend that two adults are present in each Holiday Home
Age restrictions may apply at certain Hotels and Hostels. We will advise of any restrictions applied by any accommodation venue at the time of booking. Certain accommodation may require an additional refundable deposit against any damage caused.
Before signing the booking form, please make sure that you have the authority to do so on behalf of your club, team, school or organisation. Please see below our cancellation charges.
Surcharges will only be imposed on your holiday due to sudden changes in transportation costs, fuel duties, taxes and exchange rates or for any unforeseen circumstance, which are beyond our control. We will also absorb up to 3% increase in the overall cost of your tour for any of the above increases.
The Exchange Rate:
Due to the UK’s exit from the EU and the fluctuating rate of exchange we reserve the right to adjust your tour cost accordingly up until the date that your deposit has been received by us. Once your deposit payment has been received no increases will be applied.
Changes to the number of people travelling:
Please be aware that your tour will have been based on a specific number of people traveling. If the number of people traveling reduces or the accommodation you require changes then this will be reflected in the cost of your tour and we reserve the right to make the necessary adjustments. If your numbers increase, then this will be reflected in a reduction of the per person cost.
Please be aware that changes to flights including name changes, additional luggage, change of dates can prove to be costly and we reserve the right to pass on these charges.
In the event that you or any member of your group, decide to cancel their tour you must notify us as soon as possible in writing. Should you cancel your tour after you have booked and for any reason not covered by your insurance, please be aware that you may be liable for all costs up to the full amount. Late payments of deposits and final balances may jeopardise your tour. Touring Sport cannot be held responsible for any loss of accommodation, travel or excursions due to late payments. If any one aspect of your tour is cancelled for this reason and alternative arrangements cannot be made, then again you may be liable for the total cost of the tour or for extra costs involved arranging alternative facilities. On our part we will advise in good time of payments that are due. Should you wish to make changes to your booking then we would be pleased to do so without charge, unless we are charged ourselves by any of our suppliers. Please be aware that your tour will have been based on a specific number of people traveling. If the number of people traveling reduces then the cost of the tour may increase.
The cost of your group tour will be shown on your booking form, which you will receive in writing before accepting and confirming your tour. The total cost of your tour will be determined by the number of people you have requested to travel.
Reducing the number of people travelling on a tour once the tour cost has been agreed and accepted has a financial implication for those remaining on the tour.
If an individual cancels; they may be liable for the full cost of their place on the tour, to avoid an individual increase in cost for those remaining passengers.
If an individual cancels their place on the tour and a replacement person can be found, then the replacement person is welcome to take their place. Please be aware that in respect of making changes to airlines bookings the airlines can make a charge for any name changes or replacement passengers. If flights are included as part of your tour the cancellation charges are shown below. Any such charges from the airlines will be advised at the time and will be applied to your final invoice.
Our cancellation charges below apply to group bookings. As our tours are bespoke, and our suppliers require payments at various times, the exact deposit and balance amounts will be shown on your booking form along with the cancellation charges that apply if different from those shown below, before your acceptance.
We will endeavour to keep any charges down to a minimum, however we reserve the right to implement these charges should they apply. If there is an increase in the number of people travelling, and they can be accommodated at the same rate, then we will of course reflect this in the overall cost of your tour.

Insurance: Travel and Sports Insurance:
For your own protection it is a condition of ours that every member of your touring group must have adequate travel insurance. The travel insurance that we provide is specially adapted to cover all aspects of your tour, including cover for your team whilst playing their sports fixtures. You can by all means arrange to use your own insurance; however, we must ask to be notified of the policy details before you travel. We will provide you with a Travel Indemnity Form to complete. If using your own insurance, please check that this will cover your team whilst playing their fixtures. On receipt of receiving your deposit we will initiate cover and forward individual copies to you. Under the A.B.I code of practice we will draw your attention to the important features of the policy. Should you have a justifiable reason for being dissatisfied with the cover provided, we have a cooling off period in which you can return the policy document to us and a full refund will be forwarded. At many of the centres you may find they have activities that will not be covered under the terms of the insurance. If you are unsure as to whether you are covered or not it probably means that you are not, so take our advice and don’t take part. If it is an activity, we have arranged for you then insurance cover will have been included. We would be happy to quote for any additional cover required. Our insurance will include a section for Covid-19 should any passenger become ill, prior to or whilst away on tour.
