We fully appreciate the complexity of arranging a school visit, which is why you can rely on us to assist in making your planning as easy as possible. If you decide that you would like to visit a specific destination before booking with us, please contact us for further information.
Wherever you decide to tour with us, you can be confident in the knowledge that you will always have access to an experienced member of our team through our 24-hour duty system, ensuring you have a fast and efficient response to any issue at all times. Below you will find some essential information that we think will help clarify and simplify the process. Remember, we are here to help.
In Europe, students are usually accommodated in three and four-bedded rooms with en-suite facilities. Staff members are in single or twin rooms with en-suite facilities. In youth hostels, students may be accommodated in six to eight-bedded rooms, and we cannot guarantee that all youth hostels will have en-suite facilities. Hostel accommodation is an option in some cities.
There are no special health requirements or vaccinations required for any of our tour destinations. You may wish to obtain a copy of The Department of Health's Traveller’s Guide to Health which is available at main post offices, by telephoning 0800 555 777 or online.
The safety and security of your group is our first consideration. In the event of the Foreign Office advising against travel to a certain country, we would act on this advice. However, we do recommend that you check Foreign Office Travel Advice before you make a booking.

Although we take every precaution in looking after both you and your group on tour, the responsibility for your group’s personal safety and welfare and the care of personal possessions is obviously the same as that which is exercised while at home. Extra care should be taken when walking around cities – especially at night – and we recommend your group stay in well-lit, populated areas. It is also wise to avoid carrying valuables or wearing expensive jewellery.
For your own peace of mind, we insist that all groups travelling on our School Battlefield and Education Tours are covered by travel insurance. We will require basic details about the school’s insurance policy.
The duration of holidays is described in number of days and in all cases includes the day of departure from the UK and the day of arrival back in the UK.
These should be advised on your Passenger Information Form, which will be issued with your Booking Form once you have decided to make a booking. Although we will endeavour to meet special requests, this is dependent on our suppliers and we cannot guarantee that your requirements will be met. Unfortunately, we cannot accept any booking that is conditional upon a special request being met. Please also note that requests for extra legroom on aircraft are so frequently requested that they are unlikely to be available in most circumstances.
When requesting vegetarian meals or special diets, it should be appreciated that standards and choice are likely to be limited.
Before a booking is made, please be sure to let us know if you or anyone in your party suffers from a serious medical condition or physical disability, as Holts Tours cannot provide individual assistance with boarding coaches or other forms of transport, baggage handling, walking or other personal requirements, etc. You should be confident that everyone in your group can do these tasks unaided.

We are happy to give advice and assistance with regard to the choice of your tour, which will be dependent upon the nature of the disability and whether an able-bodied companion will accompany the person with the disability. Some suppliers may request certification from a GP to confirm fitness for travel. We regret that we cannot be held liable for any costs incurred as a result of this.
Please be aware that information supplied to us for anyone with a medical condition or disability or dietary/religious requirements will be passed to other companies and persons who supply the various parts of our travel arrangements. We will not, however, pass this information to any party that is not responsible for your group’s travel arrangements.
