If you wish to change any details of your booking we will do our best to help. However, in the case of major changes (such as those that will lower the basic price of your holiday or that would cause your holiday to cease being a package holiday) will be treated by us as a different holiday and cancellation charges apply. Changes to your accommodation and flight within 70 days prior to departure will also be treated by us as a different holiday and will also incur cancellation charges.

Cancellations must be confirmed in writing (email or letter) by the person who made the booking/signed the booking form (recorded delivery advised) or by your travel agent – also in writing. We cannot accept verbal cancellations. Once you have cancelled your booking we will send you a cancellation invoice (usually by email). If you have not received this within 14 days please contact us.
To cover the cost of processing your cancellation and to compensate us for the risk that we may not be able to resell your holiday, the cancellation charges below are payable (including extras) from the date we receive written confirmation. The more notice you give us, the less we charge. The person who made the booking is responsible for this charge.
Please remember that for some holiday arrangements (in particular scheduled carriers) the cancellation charges may be higher than those shown. In these cases 100% cancellation fee applies as soon as the booking is made and the ticket issued. In these instances the charges below are as a % of the cost of all the remaining arrangements and the non-refundable charges will be added to these.
The number of days prior to departure is taken to be from the day on which written notice is received by us: cancellation 63 days or more prior to departure = loss of deposit
Europe (excluding Finland)
56-62 days = 35%
28-55 days = 55%
14-27 days = 75%
13-4 days = 95%
3 days or less = 100%
USA, Canada, Japan, South America and Finland
56-62 days = 35%
0-55 days = 100%
As much accommodation is priced according to the number of people staying there, if cancellation of a party member results in under occupancy of a room, apartment or chalet, the cost of the holiday for those remaining will increase as they must pay the appropriate empty bed charge. Cancellations may also affect your entitlement to group free places. Such changes to costs as a result of reductions in numbers of your party will be shown on a new invoice.
If you wish to add a person to your booking or add ski packs, we cannot guarantee that this can be done and such changes cannot always be accepted within 14 days prior to the date of departure.
