- Airport Hotel and Parking
Once flight schedules are confirmed, we can advise and assist with overnight hotel accommodation or car parking at UK airports.
- Deposit and Payment Terms
At the time of publishing initial tour details, the itinerary is provisional and tour costs have been estimated. The prices shown are based on previous tours and intended as a guide. You may secure your tour place by advance registering with a £250 per person deposit. When the final tour details and prices are circulated, simply confirm and pay the full deposit, or cancel and receive a full refund. In the meantime, there is no obligation and no risk. All monies are 100% protected at all times by our package holiday ATOL licence. In due course, if you confirm a booking, you will need to pay an initial tour deposit in addition to the advance registration deposit, a second stage deposit at a later date, and the final balance at least 90 days prior to departure. You must also have your own, comprehensive travel insurance in place in due course. Bookings are subject to terms and conditions.
- Financial Protection
This flight-inclusive tour is financially protected by
the ATOL scheme. When you make a booking and payment you will be supplied with a Booking Confirmation and an ATOL
Certificate. Please check to ensure that everything you booked is listed on
these documents. In the unlikely event of our insolvency, the CAA will ensure
that you are not stranded abroad and will arrange to refund any money you have
paid to us for an advance booking. For further information visit the ATOL
www.atol.org.uk. NB: ATOL Certificates became a legal requirement
for bookings made as and from 1st October 2012. For further details about ATOL
Certificates please visit
Currently, the group flight times are not finalised, however we are most likely to fly to Prague from London Heathrow with a late morning / lunchtime departure, and return from Budapest, landing back into London Heathrow late afternoon or early evening.

Please consult your GP or local travel clinic for appropriate health information and vaccination advice. Our local clinic recommends primary courses and boosters up to date as recommended for life in Britain, but please remember we are a travel company and not experts in health advice so we recommend you consult your local GP or health clinic, show them the holiday brochure and indicate the places you will be visiting. Your GP is most familiar with your personal medical history and is best qualified to determine your particular needs.
