Variable price policy
To cope with the challenge of travel in the Covid era, we have introduced a variable pricing policy. Traditionally we have always priced our trips to be full, in order to keep prices as keen as possible. This means that dropping even a coupe of places can severely affect the viability of a trip: more than that means we are running at a loss.
Rather than hike prices accross the board to cover ourselves for people dropping out we have instituted this policy. The price varies per person, so if people drop out before paying the balance of the trip, but without us having the chance to replace them, then we are covered. In essence, this makes it more likely that the trip will still go ahead, and that we won't have to cancel the departure!
When you book a trip, you should assume and be prepared to pay the higher 8 person price. Obviously if the trip goes ahead with this number then you will benefit from more personal attention with your photography. Once we have the final payments in, and it is too late for people to pull out and get a refund then we will notify you of the final price and action any refunds.
room share policy
Prices for this trip is based on a compulsory twin share basis: that is on two people sharing a room.
If you are travelling with a partner, or a friend, then this doesn't affect you, but if you are travelling on your own, you will be paired up with another same-sex member of the group to share.
In order to keep prices as low as possible, sharing a room, or paying the single supplement is compulsory on this trip: we simply can't afford anyone having a single room without paying for it.
This means that we will have to manage the rooming lists carefully, so that this situation doesn't crop up. Unfortunately this means that the availability of places or the availability of the optional single supplement cannot be guaranteed. When making a booking, the more flexible that you can be over rooming and dates, the more likely you will be to get a place!
