Holiday frequently asked questions and essential information.
A full list with details and guide prices will either be included in your final tour documentation or provided upon arrival. Ocean Liners have optional excursions available for purchase direct with the cruise line.
We will endeavour to send your documentation approximately 14 days prior to departure. Your documents will be emailed to you, so please ensure you check your personal junk mail box if you are expecting to receive documents and you cannot see them in your inbox. We can only offer paper documentation for a £10 fee.
Balances are due 8 weeks prior to departure.
We have found over the years that young children do not enjoy coach touring holidays and therefore we do not accept bookings for children under 8. We do offer a range of other holidays that may be more suited to a younger child, in particular our resort stays.
We do understand that unfortunately things can happen that are out of your control. The cancellation fees are calculated dependent on your departure date. Please check our cancellation grid within the Terms and Conditions section.
As we know this information is required when completing your online application the details of the hotel are printed on your Archers holiday invoice.

For a job well done we suggest 5 Euro(or the applicable currency) per person per day for your Tour Director and 3 Euro( or other currency) per person per day for your driver.
Avalon passengers are advised that tips for your Cruise Director and ships crew are included in the price of your holiday.

We use mobile phone or email contact information for emergency purposes in time sensitive situations so that should the need arise, we can quickly get in touch.
