A few other details Insurance policy Because it's important to be adequately insured when you travel abroad, we offer optional comprehensive travel insurance, underwritten by Great Lakes Insurance SE, UK Branch, and additional cancellation rights with all our overseas holidays. If you are suffering from, or in the last 12 months have suffered from, an illness that has required treatment from a doctor, you must advise us and we'll confirm whether you can be covered under this insurance. A full summary of the optional travel insurance will be provided with your booking confirmation. Cover is available to UK residents only and subject to medical screening. Terms and conditions apply. If you have your own insurance, we will offer you the holiday at a lower price. Greater flexibility Wherever possible, we offer you the chance to tailor your holiday to suit you. Whether you want to add extra nights to the beginning or end of your holiday with one of our extensions, upgrade your flight or room, change your board arrangement or spend extra weeks in your chosen destination, we can often help with your requests. Please speak to your Travel Agent about your requirements when you book. Travelife sustainability in tourism We're thrilled to be working with a number of hotels that are Travelife Gold Certified. The Travelife scheme helps ensure that certified hotels are reducing the amount of rubbish being produced, safeguard children and the local environment, promote the culture and heritage of the area and protect human right. Look out for the certification mark on the hotel pages. Fly from an airport near you It's often easier and more convenient to fly from a local airport, so wherever possible we give you the opportunity to do so. Your VIP door-to-door travel service included on selected holidays On selected holidays you can take advantage of our complimentary travel package, which includes a return chauffeur service from your home to your airport, standard class rail travel from your local station to your departure airport, or complimentary parking at the airport if you'd prefer to drive yourself. Depending on the time of your international flight you may need overnight accommodation, which will be at your own additional cost. Our VIP door-to-door travel service is available to anyone in mainland England, Scotland, Wales, Northern Ireland, the Isle of Wight and Channel Islands. We're not currently able to offer the service to those in the Scottish islands, Isle of Man, Sark or the Isles of Scilly. Your address will need to be within 75 miles of your departure point. Saga reserves the right to select the most appropriate form of transport for your journey. You could be sharing the journey with up to three (or very occasionally five) other Saga passengers in one of our larger MPVs. Alternatively you can choose to have the vehicle for just you and your travelling companions at a price of 1.85 a mile. A minimum charge of 45 each way applies to journeys less than 28 miles. The right to refuse the chauffeur service is at our discretion. For all other holidays you can book our VIP door-to-door travel service for an extra charge. Our thoughtful touches When you travel with Saga you can look forward to some fantastic excursions, which are often included in the price, plus a host of activities and entertainment tailored to Saga guests. As you would expect, these are an example of what may be available and are subject to demand you'll receive full details when you arrive. At all accommodation we request rooms on the ground floor or first floor if there's no lift, and we make sure that heating, air conditioning or ceiling fans are a feature where necessary. All bedrooms will have a private bath or shower and wc as a minimum. Please note: Check-in is usually from 2pm and at most hotels you will need to check out by 11am. Q is for quality As accommodation ratings vary from country to country, we show both the local star rating of a property and our own Q-rating based on the variety of food, facilities and standard of rooms. QQQQQ represents the finest, while Q+ hotels offer something a little extra perhaps a great location or outstanding service. Similarly, river cruise ships are given their own rating, with hhhhh being the finest. Why not add our VIP door-to-door travel service? Be the envy of your neighbours and enjoy a stress-free start to your holiday by booking our door-to-door travel service. From just 1.60 a mile you'll be collected from your door and taken right to the terminal entrance and met on arrival back in the UK. A note about special offers The offers in this brochure supersede any previously advertised offers and cannot be combined. Saga reserves the right to reduce, withdraw or extend offers at any time without notice. Free Wi-Fi at many hotels You can stay connected at no additional cost at selected hotels in Europe thanks to free Wi-Fi at your hotel. Travel solo with confidence More than a fifth of our customers are solo travellers so we make sure we offer single rooms at no extra cost on as many hotel stays and tours as possible. For periods when there is no single supplement to pay, hotels have given us a set number of rooms; once these have been booked we may still be able to offer single rooms but there will probably be a supplement to pay. Therefore it's always best to book early to be in with the best chance of securing a room at no extra cost. Animal welfare We strongly believe animals should be treated fairly within the tourism industry. As ABTA members, we have a duty of care to ensure that the excursions we offer to our customers meet the Animal Welfare guidelines supplied by ABTA. These guidelines include not supporting activities that involve unnatural behaviour, or those that could be perceived as unacceptable or discouraged practices. We regularly review on-going excursions that involve animals, along with any feedback from customers and outside sources. We are unable to include the environment contribution tax for Morocco, Greece, Malta, Majorca, Minorca and Ibiza, this has to be paid locally by all guests 260 JUNE 2018 NHN-EM5845 + VIP TRADE
