Retail travel agency policy
Undiscovered Britain & Ireland Ltd is delighted, now as ever, to work directly with retail travel agents in arranging specialized travel or booking any of our tours for their clients.
We can offer either net rates or commissionable tours and will be happy to discuss any special requests you may have.
Booking & Reservations Procedures: Undiscovered Britain & Ireland (UB) requires either a personal check made out to the business name; or a credit card number (Visa or MasterCard only) with billing address and phone number in order to request a reservation. Once a reservation has been made, the credit card will be charged a NON-REFUNDABLE deposit of 30% of the package price, or 50% for bookings made less than 3 months prior to departure. Final payment by personal check or credit card is due 45 days prior to departure. For bookings made 45 days or less prior to departure from the US, we request full payment at the time of reservations.
Fees: Bookings made, or payments received 21 days or less prior to departure from the US will be accessed an additional $25.00 fee before travel documents will be issued. These fees are non-refundable.
Before Final Documentation is sent: $35.00 per person
After Final Documentation has been sent: $50.00 per person plus any supplier (hotels, car rental companies, etc.) fees.
Full deposit amount per person; non-refundable if cancelled 46 days or more prior to travel
Once final payment has been made, it is entirely non-refundable, therefore, IT IS STRONGLY RECOMMENDED THAT TRAVELERS OBTAIN TRAVEL INSURANCE.
Any cancellations must be received in writing by mail, fax or email before they can be processed.
Refunds: Notice for refund requests must be forwarded to Undiscovered Britain by registered mail no later than 14 days from completion of the trip, with a detailed explanation of why the refund is requested. All unused documents should be returned with the request. It is entirely the discretion of Undiscovered Britain as to whether the refund, either full or partial, will be given.
After this time, no refunds will be considered. Reservations that have been cancelled by the traveler directly with a hotel or any other supplier do not qualify for a refund. Please note that there are no refunds for any packages designated as non-refundable.

A Tour Operator is effectively selling their knowledge, organizational skills, and packaging ability to provide our clients with a custom-fit solution where all details of their travel package are accounted for. The end result should provide an experience for the traveler that would be very difficult to duplicate on their own. Obviously, people also have the choice to organize each facet of the trip themselves and book their own travel, using whatever tools they have (ie: internet; travel magazines; experiences of friends, etc.) This method can certainly be cheaper than using professional services, but can result in a much less rewarding experience.
I am a professional, relying on my over 20 years of experience and training on the subject matter (the United Kingdom and Ireland) to put together a full and complete travel package for my clients. The effective difference between myself and other travel companies, such as Tauck or Globus, etc, is that they are generally selling a prepackaged tour, while I am selling a fully customized itinerary, based on your requests; special interests, and in some cases, special needs. Nor are we a hotel reservations booking service. You can book hotels directly if you choose to do so through companies like Priceline, Travelocity, or Orbitz. Unlike these companies, we are specialists in travel planning and that is what you are paying for.
Additionally, we do not price a la carte. We do not charge you a service fee; it is built into the package price, and therefore, we, like every other tour operator, cannot provide you with a breakdown of individual prices of the many components of your tour package.
