Booking your Holiday
When should we book? The sooner you book the better. We have
many regular customers who book early. Leaving your booking until the Spring could lead to disappointment, so better to book as early as possible.
How do we book? To reserve a boat please check availability
by contacting the booking office (opening hours on page 7) or by using the 'Boat Availability' link from the home page on our website, www.canalholidays.co.uk
. We will then hold your boat for up to 5 days. Once we have received a completed booking form and payment we will confirm your booking by post or email.
When is the balance due? The balance is due 4 weeks before the start
of your holiday. You will receive a remittance advice with your booking confirmation.
Included in the hire fee? The hire of the boat and all its equipment
including bedding, VAT (where applicable), fuel, gas, toilet pump-out, buoyancy aids, car parking, television and damage waiver is all included in the hire fee. There is no security deposit or damage
waiver payable by family groups. For all male/all female, non-family and multi-boat bookings a £250.00 security deposit is payable.

Cancellation Scheme We offer an optional cancellation scheme
whereby for a small premium (page 26) we can cover your liabilities with the Company if you unfortunately have to cancel your holiday. This scheme can only be offered to
residents of the UK. We recommend that all overseas hirers
take out their own holiday insurance to cover all flights, hotels, car hire etc as well as the boat hire. If required the premium (see page 26) must be paid when booking your holiday.
Cancellation Scheme Cover If you have paid the Cancellation Scheme
premium, you may cancel your holiday without giving any reason up to 8 weeks before you are due to start. Should you cancel within 8 weeks of the
start of your holiday the scheme covers you in the event of death, injury, illness, pregnancy (commencing after the date of booking), compulsory quarantine, witness summons, jury service or unemployment through compulsary redundancy (after the date of booking) of: 1. The insured and any prospective or actual travelling companion of the insured. 2. Partner, parent or step-parent, brother, sister, child or step-child or parent-in-law of any named member of the party.
Claimants must give immediate notice by telephone and in writing (letter, fax or email) to the Wyvern Shipping Co. Ltd. of any event which may give rise to a claim.
