  General Tour Information

To reserve space, please complete our online application form with a deposit of $500 per person. Or, contact us at (800)724-8801. The balance is due 90 days prior to trip departure. Upon receipt of your deposit, you will receive, with written confirmation, complete itinerary, details of meeting time and place, and transportation to your hotel. Much more information, including suggestions for clothing, gear and footwear will follow. We’ll also send you a recommended reading list so your “travels” can begin before leaving home.

Prices include all accommodations, meals as indicated, taxes and some gratuities. Not included are laundry, beverages not included with meals, travel or entertainment not in the itinerary, or health, accident or baggage insurance. If traveling singly there is an applicable single supplement.

 

Tipping and gratuities are not the same in the UK as in the US. Gratuities for hotel staff, including restaurant staff at the hotel and luggage handlers can be left at the reception desk at the end of your stay, if their service and your experience warrants it. For drivers, tip accordingly depending on the level of service as you would in the USA. We encourage you to tip your Ramblers' guide(s) if your experience warrants it. The standard in the industry reanges from $10 to $15 per person, per guide per day (or $20 to $30 per couple, per guide, per day), and can be paid in USD or local currency.  Your guide(s) will take care of any gratuities when they pay for a meal while you are on tour.

We will be pleased to assist with:

  • Transfers between airports and our hotels
  • Additional hotel accommodations
  • Airline reservations

We highly recommend that you protect yourself and your baggage with a short-term travel insurance policy. Trip cancellation insurance will cover your losses of non-refundable air and land costs on a trip you cancel due to personal or family illness or accident. Once you have registered for a tour, visit our insurance page for a direct link to purchase your protection.

If notification of cancellation is received more than 90 days prior to the start of the trip, the deposit will be refunded less a $100 per person cancellation fee. Cancellations 60 to 90 days prior to trip's starting date will result in the loss of 25% of the trip price. Cancellations 30 to 59 days prior to trip's departure result in the refund of 50% of the trip price. No refund is given for cancellations received within 29 days of the trip's starting date. In the rare event English Lakeland Ramblers has to cancel a trip, you will receive a full refund; ELR is not responsible for any additional expenses that may be incurred by a guest.

Don't take our word for how wonderful these trips are. We'll be delighted to provide you with references of others who have rambled with us. Visit our Testimonals page to read comments from our customers.
