Your costs do not include flights. We recommend you book the confirmed group flight as soon as possible in order to get the best rate. A non-refundable deposit of €100 is required to book your place before the 1st of May 2017, as places are limited.
The balance of your holiday fee is due five weeks before the tour date. (Aug 27th) Unfortunately once this has been paid, this is non-refundable, as all guest costs are paid for in advance. However, if you are unable to travel you are welcome to pass your spot on to another person. You will need to contact Ryanair directly if you want to change the name of the person travelling, and this does incur additional costs.
Shopping and Supplies - We will do a communal shop at the beginning of the holiday - getting such essentials as wine, food, fruit, water etc - we will ask everyone to contribute to the kitty for this - if you are not a wine drinker you will be out of the wine fund.
