- You may change the numbers of persons in your group booking, transfer your holiday to another person, or cancel your break at any time provided that the person who originally booked the break gives notification to us in writing.

If you cancel your break or the number in your group booking reduces before the final balance is due, we will retain the deposit paid by (or due from if still outstanding) each person cancelling as a cancellation fee. If you cancel after the final balance is due you may be charged the outstanding balance as a cancellation fee depending on the venues cancellation policy applies to us. Please contact firstname.lastname@example.org in order to find out your hotel or golf courses specific cancellation policy.

We may require satisfactory evidence before agreeing to the transfer.
- In the event of any other amendments, you must pay in addition all costs incurred by us in making the amendment together with any costs or charges incurred or imposed by any of the hotel or suppliers concerned. In particular, if numbers change so that there is an odd number remaining in the party, single room supplements will apply.
- No credits or refunds will be granted irrespective of whether or not the full package or services included are used.
Cancellations and Amendments by us

However, we will not cancel your Tour booking after the Balance Due Date, except for reasons of force majeure or failure by you to pay the final balance by the Balance Due Date. Most changes are minor, and we will advise you of them at the earliest possible date. Occasionally, we have to make a “significant change”, and we will tell you of any such change as soon as reasonably possible if there is time before departure.
- If we make a significant change or cancel your break, we will offer you the choice of the following options:- (i) accepting the changed arrangements; or (ii) purchasing an alternative break from us. If alternative break more expensive than the original one you will pay the increase in cost if and if the alternative break is, in fact, cheaper than the original one, we will refund the price difference; or (iii) cancelling or accepting the cancellation in which case you will receive a full and quick refund of all monies you have paid to us.
