1.14 TRAVEL DOCUMENTS, ITINERARIES, PICK-UP POINTS AND PASSPORTS
For all Continental holidays, you will require a full 10-year British Passport (machine readable) valid for a further 6 months after your holiday. If you
do not hold a full British Passport or have any doubts about your status as a resident British subject, you must check with the Embassies or Consulates
of the Countries to be visited to confirm the Passport or visa requirements when you book. We cannot accept responsibility if passengers are not in
possession of the correct travel documents. For full details on passport requirements, please contact ‘the identity and passport service’ on ;

You are responsible for ensuring you are at the correct departure point, at the correct time and with the correct documents. Sharpes of Nottingham
reserve the right to modify itineraries to conform with requests from competent authorities both within the UK and abroad.
Excursions which are included in the cost of your booking are detailed on the brochure page and refunds will not be made for excursions not taken.
Optional excursions booked and paid for in resort do not form part of your booking. Admission fees to buildings may not be included in the price of
the holiday, please check.
1.15 SPECIAL REQUESTS
All special needs and requests, if agreed, should be entered on the booking form and be included in the confirmation of the holiday. These cannot be
guaranteed except where confirmed as part of our holiday commitment to you and are detailed on your holiday booking confirmation. We are keen to
ensure that we plan the arrangements for your holiday so that special needs and requests can be accommodated as far as possible. If you will need
assistance or may be unable to fully enjoy all aspects of your holiday you must tell us in advance so that we can maximise your enjoyment of the
holiday. We will need to know if you will need special facilities in the hotel, taking part in the excursions or have difficulty boarding and travelling on
the coach or other means of transport. Before booking your holiday, you should be sure that you and your party are both physically and mentally
capable of completing the itinerary. If you need advice or further information either you or your booking agent should contact Sharpes of Nottingham.
If you will require a special diet please tell us at the time of booking, or as soon as you are medically advised, together with a copy of the diet.
1.16 PASSENGERS WITH DISABILITIES
We want everyone to enjoy our travel arrangements. We are happy to advise and assist you in choosing a suitable holiday. But, as some of the
accommodation and resorts featured may not cater for even minor disabilities, it is important that, when booking, you advise us of any disability, specific
need or complex need you may have and any special requirements that will make sure the holiday is suitable. If a passenger requires personal assistance
(for example, assistance with feeding, dressing, toileting, mobilising) then this passenger must travel with an able-bodied companion or carer and
written confirmation that such assistance will be provided for the entirety of the holiday is required at the time of booking. Coach drivers/Tour
Managers are unable to provide such assistance.
IMPORTANT
You must tell us if you have an existing medical condition, disability or complex need that may affect your holiday or other group members’ enjoyment
of it before you book your holiday. We reserve the right to request a doctor’s certificate confirming the passenger is fit to travel. If, in our reasonable
opinion, your chosen holiday is not suitable for your medical condition or disability, we reserve the right to refuse your booking. You are responsible for
bringing with you the proper clothing and equipment, which we advise you about in our printed trip information. We want you to enjoy your holiday
and will help you select an appropriate trip.
1.17 PASSENGER BEHAVIOUR
We want all our customers to have a happy and carefree holiday. You are responsible for your behaviour and hygiene and the effect it may have on
others. If you or any other member of your party is abusive, disruptive or behaves in a way that could cause damage or injury to others or affect their
enjoyment of their holiday or which could damage property, we have the right to terminate your contract with us and we will have no further liability
or obligation to you. The coach driver/representative, ship's captain, or authorised official is entitled to refuse you boarding if in their reasonable
opinion you are unacceptably under the influence of drink or drugs or you are being violent or disruptive. If you are refused boarding on the outward
journey, we will regard it as a cancellation by you and we will apply cancellation charges. If on your return journey, we have the right to terminate the
contract with you. We also request that mobile telephones are not used on the coach.
