Changes And Cancellations

Changes to Your Booking

Should there be any significant changes to your holiday from that described in our brochure, we will advise you either upon booking or as soon as possible thereafter.

We also recommend that you periodically check the Foreign Office Travel Advice between making your decision to travel and your holiday date at Please see our Conditions of Booking

Do be aware that itineraries planned for some holidays may be changed on the spot due to unexpected events. The final decision for any changes rests with your tour leader. Ramblers Walking Holidays cannot be held responsible for disruption to planned itineraries arising from weather conditions or situations beyond our control such as earthquakes or political unrest. Every effort will always be made to provide alternative activities and to ensure that you have the best holiday possible.

Occasionally due to unforeseen circumstances we may have to make changes to the advertised hotels and we will advise you of any such changes as soon as possible. On occasion, particularly on holidays visiting multiple centres this may be once the holiday has commenced.



We reserve the right to cancel individual holiday departures in any circumstances, for example if the minimum number of participants necessary, in our opinion, to make the holiday commercially viable, is not achieved.

We will endeavour to give you as much notice as possible in the event that we need to cancel a holiday to allow you to consider an alternative date or holiday. Whenever possible we will offer you an alternative holiday option. In any event, except for reasons of:

  • Force majeure
  • Your failure to pay the balance due for your holiday
  • Concerns as to your fitness to participate in the advertised holiday arrangements come to light

We will not cancel your holiday within the periods indicated below:

UK Holidays  8 weeks before departure 
Short Haul holidays   10 weeks before departure
Long Haul holidays   12 weeks before ?departure
Cruise & Walk holidays   14 weeks before departure  



You can choose to cancel your holiday at any time. Any cancellations must be made in writing and all cancellations are subject to the Terms & Conditions of your booking, which you must agree to before you book with us.

If the reason for your cancellation is covered under the terms of your travel insurance policy you may be able to reclaim any charged incurred.
