The excursion by boat on the Banyoles lake is not included in the price.
A full itinerary with daily timings will be supplied to each person at airport prior to departure

All prices are based on the availability of flight seats and hotel rooms and for that reason we require confirmation from participants ASAP. As we have to sign a firm reservation next week and at the latest 14th September to ensure such availability.

A sum of at least 50% of the total (or maybe the full amount) should be paid, or transferred directly, to Banca March. Your payment should be made to Menorca Britannia account number 0061 0239 41 0022100118 and clearly state your name/s and VIAJE GIRONA. When shown as received on the bank statement this will act as your confirmation and a receipt will be forwarded. You should also telephone Sheila on 971366206 or email to confirm your reservation.

The final payment should be made on or before October 26th. Should we not achieve the minimum numbers or should the trip have to be cancelled for other reasons outside our control, your money will be immediately refunded.

Personal cancellation for whatever reason  and travel insurance is not included and we suggest that you take out cover for the period as Menorca Britannia cannot make refunds should you have to cancel for personal reasons or for loss or damage to luggage.
