Booking Conditions

Confirmation of Booking

As soon as we receive your signed booking form and deposit we will confirm in writing that you have reserved a place on the tour. Please note that at this point a binding contract exists between you and ‘Somewhere in France’ Tours. If you make a telephone booking using your credit card, or an on-line booking using Paypal, the contract exists from that moment.

Any outstanding balance will be shown on your confirmation document. This balance must be paid at least 21 days before departure - except  in the case of late bookings, where the entire cost may be paid at once.



Cancellation

If you need to cancel your  booking you must notify us  immediately and confirm same in writing. Deposits are non-refundable; but if you notify your cancellation more than four weeks prior to departure ‘Somewhere in France’ Tours undertake to offer a full refund of the remaining balance. Otherwise cancellation charges will apply. Within two weeks of departure 50 per cent of the remaining balance will be forfeited. Within one week the proportion will rise to 75 per cent. Within two days the proportion will be 100 per cent. At ‘Somewhere in France’ Tours, however, we endeavour to maintain a friendly and amenable relationship with our clients. We are always prepared to discuss the matter and it may be that your tour could be  conveniently rescheduled to a later date.

‘Somewhere in France’ Tours are fully insured. In the unlikely event that we are obliged to cancel your booking, then an alternative tour or a full refund will be offered immediately.
