TERMS & CONDITIONS
Please make sure that you read this section as these are the conditions that you agree to when you book.
Contract: No contract shall exist between the client or persons on whose behalf the booking form is made and FreshTraxxx Ltd. until a signed booking form has been received with a deposit of £150 or full payment as applicable and our confirmation invoice has been issued. All clients are subject to these conditions whether they have signed our booking form or not. We reserve the right to refuse to accept bookings in our absolute discretion, without stating the reason for doing so.
Payments: The balance of monies due from the customer must reach the FreshTraxxx office 10 weeks before departure. We cannot guarantee to accept bookings that arrive after this date even if the group leader accepted payment and booking forms prior to this date. All financial transactions, tour administration, information distribution, and ticketing will be done through the group leader. Once confirmation is dispatched, your contract is made with FreshTraxxx and the deposit and insurance premium are non-refundable. Deposits may be claimable on insurance, subject to terms.
Pricing: Should our costs increase due to currency fluctuation FreshTraxxx reserves the right to surcharge on the following items: government action, currency, aircraft fuel, over-flying charges, airport charges. Even in such event, we will absorb an amount equivalent to 2% of the holiday price excluding amendment charges. No surcharge will exceed 10% of your holiday price, excluding amendment charges and no surcharge will be made within 30 days of departure, except on bookings within 30 days where any surcharge would be shown on your invoice €1.5 to equal £1.00.
Amendment Fees: FreshTraxxx reserves the right to charge £25 per alteration, should you wish to change your original booking. Dishonored cheques will be treated as an amendment. If we are unable to make alterations as you requested and you do not wish to continue with the booking then our cancellation charges apply.
Cancellation: Any booking cancellation must be made in writing to FreshTraxxx without any due delay. In this event the following cancellation charges will apply: More than 56 days – deposit only; more than 35 days – 60% of total; more than 21 days – 80% of total; 21 days or less – 100% of total. If cancellation of a party member results in under occupancy of a room, apartment or chalet, those remaining must pay the appropriate empty bed charge.
Cancellation of Holiday: FreshTraxxx reserves the right in any circumstance to cancel your holiday. However, in no case will we cancel your holiday less than 8 weeks before the scheduled departure except for reasons of ‘force majeure’ which include war, political unrest, strikes, acts of God, epidemics, natural and technical disaster, closure of ports and aircraft or unless the clients default in the payment of the balance of the holiday price. In circumstances where we are unable to provide the holiday you have booked we will return to you all monies paid, or offer you an alternative holiday of similar standards and if the cancellation occurs within 12 weeks of departure, compensation on a similar scale to that shown in the Cancellation section.
Health Requirements: Currently there are no health or vaccination requirements for Britons visiting our destination. We recommend that each client obtain an E111 form issued by the DHSS.

Most non-EU nationals need a visa for France or Switzerland and must arrange this themselves.
