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.

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.   Please see cancellation and penalty fee policy below.  Final payment by personal check or credit card (Visa or Mastercard only)  45 days prior  to departure. For bookings made 45 days or less prior to departure from the U.S. we request full payment at the time of reservation.

Any bookings for airline tickets must be paid in full at the time of ticketing.

Visa requirements do change without notice and vary by nationality. Please check with the consulate office of the destination country as to visa requirements.

 

Responsibility: UBI and/or its agents act only as booking agents for railways, tourist boards, hotels, sightseeing vendors, car rentals and/or any other service in connection with the itineraries of individual or group travelers. Every reservation is accepted subject to the terms and conditions of the suppliers. UBI  shall not be liable for injury, damage, loss, accident, delay, irregularity, liability or expense to person or property due to an act or default by any company or person providing or rendering services included in the tour. UBI and/or its agents accept no responsibility for any sickness, injury, pilferage, labor dispute, machinery breakdown, government restraint, act of god, war, terrorism, weather condition, defect in vehicle or transportation or for any misadventure or casualty or any other circumstances beyond their control. The responsibility of any airline used is solely that set out in the passenger contract evidenced by the ticket. Airlines and other carriers are not responsible for any act, omission or event during the time passengers are not aboard their planes or conveyances. UBI cannot be held responsible for variations in length or content of sightseeing.

 

UBI reserves the right to make any changes in the itinerary whenever, in their opinion, conditions require it or when they are necessary for the safety, comfort or convenience of the travelers.

 

In addition, UBI does not guarantee the psychological satisfaction of the client.  We always do, however, endeavor to provide a positive  and enjoyable experience for each person who is traveling with our company.

TOUR OPERATOR

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.
