Booking Terms1. Your Battlefield Study Contract
At the time of asking for a booking to be made on your behalf you must complete and sign a booking form agreeing to accept the terms and conditions as a group leader. The person making the booking accepts full responsibility for paying for all persons named on the booking. Your booking is binding on receipt of the booking form (received either via email or post). We reserve the right not to proceed with any booking at any time.
2 . Booking Forms
You must provide accurate data on the booking form, any inaccuracies are your responsibility, and later amendments which incur charges from suppliers will be passed onto you. This is especially relevent when making name changes to flights at short notice.
3. Deposits and Payment
No booking can be accepted unless accompanied by an agreed deposit of £100 per person travelling. A larger payment will be required on tours requiring flights and you will be notified of this. Payment of the outstanding balance is due without notice, 6 weeks before departure. If the final balance is not made by the due date the Company (Battle Honours Ltd) reserves the right to treat your booking as cancelled and you could be liable to pay cancellation charges in accordance with our cancellation scales set out below. *Please note all deposits are non refundable*

5. Price Change
Prices set out at the time of booking maybe subject to variation due to matters outside of our control. BHL will do all it can to avoid passing any increases onto you.
6. Changing a Booking
If you need to alter any of the travel arrangements specified on your booking form after paying the deposit or full amount, we will do all we can to accommodate your needs. An alteration fee of £30 per person will be charged for any such change to cover administration fees, except within 8 weeks of departure when the change will be treated as a cancellation not as an alteration.
If you wish to cancel your tour after your booking has been confirmed you must inform the company in writing as soon as possible. The date of cancellation is treated as the date it is received in writing. The company reserves the right to charge you a cancellation fee based on the following scales: Please note as at point 3 deposits are non refundable

0-14 days / 100%
15-28 days / 80%
