Booking Confirmation & Payment
Once the offer has been accepted by the client and a tour is being promoted, hotel options will be put on a 12 weeks release (subject to the hotels agreement). A group booking therefore has to be confirmed at least 12 weeks prior to arrival by payment of the invoiced booking deposit, unless it has been agreed otherwise.
The final balance is required on the 4 weeks prior to the group’s arrival.

- Deposit: A non-refundable deposit of 30% of the total amount per person is required at the time of the confirmation
- Amendments: Although there is no Bontour amendment fee for changing a confirmed itinerary we may have to pass on the charges as we receive them from our supplier in the case of a confirmed service being amended or cancelled
Payment should be made against Bontour Incoming invoices on or before the due date by bank electronic transfer in £ sterling. Payments are to be made by bank transfer only.
Cancellation charges vary by property and itinerary. You will be advised of your cancellation terms at the time of booking.

Up to 29 days prior to arrival 30% cancellation charges / loss of booking deposit
28 to 15 days prior to arrival 45% cancellation charges
