All prices on our website are expressed in £ per person (unless otherwise stated at the top of the price panel*) based on 2 people travelling together and sharing a double or twin room.
*The main exception is prices for the majority of self-catering accommodation, which tend to be expressed in £ per property based on a party of 2 (at some properties there is an additional charge payable if there are more than 2 people travelling in your party; this charge usually applies to each extra adult or child, although sometimes a single charge is made irrespective of the number of additional people in your party).
Your date of arrival at the (first) hotel or property determines the price of the holiday, and prices vary according to season as indicated in the holiday price panels. A date range is given at the top of most price panels indicating when the holiday operates. In the case of snow and self-catering holidays, the last date in this range is the last date you can start the holiday; in the case of all other holidays, the last date is the day by which your holiday should finish. If international rail travel, flights or a Channel crossing are included in the basic holiday price and you travel out a few days before you are due to arrive at your Inntravel accommodation, your holiday may fall within a different pricing period and incur additional charges. Please check with us when making your booking.
What the holiday price includes
All prices include the following:
• accommodation with a private bath and/or shower and WC (unless otherwise stated) for the number of nights stated in the information panel. In the case of self-catering accommodation, bed linen, bathroom towels, heating, electricity and final cleaning are all included unless otherwise stated.
• meal arrangements as outlined in the holiday information panel. Where dinner is included, you usually dine from a half-board menu comprising 2 to 4 courses, often with regional specialities. Drinks are not included (except at breakfast).
• services integral to the holiday, such as luggage transfers on holidays on which you walk or cycle between hotels; cycle hire on cycling holidays; the services of a guide or instructor on guided holidays; and car hire or travel that is specifically described in the holiday itinerary.
• full documentation, including route notes and maps for all holidays specifically involving an element of walking or cycling, and a road map if you are driving to your destination and booking your travel through us. As your documentation pack is necessarily quite large to incorporate this wealth of information, we charge customers living outside Britain (including those in the Republic of Ireland) £20 per pack to cover the additional postage costs.
What travel elements, if any, are included in your holiday price varies and are outlined in the table below:
||Included travel element
|By air price
||return flights (usually scheduled services, but sometimes charters) from London in economy class, and
connecting travel by rail/bus and/or taxi, or hire of an economy or compact-size car, as outlined in the relevant price panel. (Unless stated otherwise, connecting travel by rail or bus is from the city-centre station, rather than the airport, and connections between the two should be paid for locally.)
|By rail price
||standard-class travel by Eurostar from London St Pancras or Ebbsfleet International to Lille or Paris, with onward travel (again in standard class) by TGV or other rail services, and transfer where necessary to your hotel (we do not include transfers to city hotels).
||a return Channel crossing from Dover to Calais with P&O Ferries for your party (minimum 2 adults) and one car*. On hotel-to-hotel walking and cycling holidays, a transfer back to the first hotel to pick up your car is included where necessary.
(*NB: A supplement of up to £34 per car per single journey applies on this route for weekend travel from 24 May to 2 June 2013 and from 19 July to 31 August 2013 inclusive, depending on time and direction of travel. ‘Weekend’ is defined as Friday and Saturday for outward travel, and Saturday and Sunday for the return crossing.)
|(holidays of 5 nights or more)
||none, other than elements that form an integral part of the holiday and are specifically stated in the description, such as car hire for some centred walks and journeys. However, we offer a flight booking service and will be happy to book your flights for you.
|(holidays of 4 nights or fewer)
||connecting travel (usually rail and/or taxi or hire car) from the most convenient airport(s) or city centre as stated in the price panel. (Unless stated otherwise, connecting travel by rail is from the city centre station, rather than the airport, and connections between the two should be paid for locally.)
|Property & hire car price
||hire of an economy-size car for the period stated in the price panel. (If your party has more than 2 people, you may need to upgrade to a larger car.)
|return transfers for 2 people by rail or taxi, as indicated in the price panel, from the airport to your accommodation.
Please note that all rail travel is in standard class, unless stated otherwise.
Where price panels give details of connecting travel
, any duration stated is approximate and excludes the connection time between airports and city railway stations. Where relevant, we recommend local bus services (pay locally) as an inexpensive, yet reliable, alternative to taxis. Full journey details will be shown on your personalised Itinerary included with your tickets and final documentation. Any stated driving time is approximate and excludes breaks or detours.
|Single room supplement
||supplement payable if only one person is occupying a room. This is usually expressed as the total additional amount payable per single room for the whole holiday, except where we specifically state in the price panel that the supplement payable is per night (eg on many holidays in the snow and at our city hotels and on special getaway breaks).
|Single traveller charge
||supplement payable if you are travelling alone. As all our prices are based on two people travelling together, we may have to make a further charge if you are travelling alone, which we will tell you about at the time of booking.
|Superior room supplement
||supplement payable to upgrade to a superior room (eg room with sea view etc, where available). Usually expressed per person per night (except for holidays in the snow, where the price is expressed per room per night).
|3rd+ person saving
||reduction to be applied to the overall holiday price for any third and subsequent persons travelling in a party. All party members must travel together for the reduction to apply; if the holiday includes a hire car, Channel crossing or taxi transfer, the party must travel in one vehicle.
|Additional person price (self-catering properties only)
||price payable by each extra adult or child where there are more than 2 people in your party. Unless otherwise stated, this price assumes that the additional person(s) is/are travelling together with the rest of the party in the same car. It does not include a larger or additional hire car, nor a ferry crossing for another car in the case of self-drive holidays.
|Connecting travel price
||price payable per person if, on holidays which include no travel, you are flying via our recommended airport(s) and wish us to book the onward travel arrangements stated in the price panel. Connecting travel is usually by rail, bus and/or taxi; unless otherwise stated, connecting travel by rail or bus tends to be from the city centre station, rather than from its airport, and connections between the two should be paid for locally.
|Extend your stay and Add-on price
||price payable if you have purchased connecting travel for your main holiday through Inntravel and you opt for our suggested extension to your main holiday. The price includes accommodation and meals as described for the stated duration, and car hire or transfers to the hotel (or central railway station for city hotels; no transfer to the airport for your homeward journey is included if you are staying in that city). Prices may be different if you are not arranging your transfers for your main holiday through Inntravel, or have your own car; please contact us for a quotation if this is the case.
|Extra night price
||price payable if you wish to add an extra night at a hotel which features in your chosen holiday, expressed per person per night based on two people sharing a double room (different prices apply if you require a single room) and the standard meal arrangements for that hotel, unless otherwise stated. Please contact us if no price is given for the hotel at which you wish to add an extra night. Unless stated otherwise, extra night prices for holidays with a hire car include an additional day’s car hire, and extra night prices for cycling holidays include an extra day’s cycle hire (except when you are staying in a large town or city at the start or end of your holiday).
Child & infant prices
We publish child prices for our holidays in the snow and our selection of walking, cycling, self-catering and hotel-based holidays designed specially with families in mind. In the main, the majority of our walking and cycling holidays are geared towards adults and are usually not suitable for children or infants.
Many of the properties featured in our Rural Hideaways programme are suitable for children, and in many cases children stay free if accompanied by two adults – see the ‘additional person’ price at each property.
Winter snow breaks
Child prices are given for those hotels particularly well suited for families (although we are happy to provide a quotation for other hotels) and apply to children sharing a room with two adults. Because the hotels offer several types of room, and the room you choose will depend largely on the age and number of children in your family, we base the prices on our normal included room type. It will often be necessary, however, to upgrade to a larger room and pay the stated supplement. Children occupying their own room pay the full adult price.
Infants under two years pay just £50 at these hotels, though no meals are included and they must share their parents’ seats on the plane or train.
Please see the example below for the Hotel Wiesenhof, Pertisau as a guide to working out your holiday price:
|Prices (£ per person based on 2 sharing)
|Children (sharing with 2 adults)
|7 nights: 5 January-23 March 2013
|12, 19, 26 Jan
|2, 9 Feb
|9, 16, 23 Mar
|Single room: add £8 per night. Extra large room: add £13 per room per night. Extra, extra large room: add £25 per room per night. Family room: add £38 per room per night.
Example: family of four with one child aged 12 and another aged 5 for the week starting 23 March.
Each adult pays £998, the 12-year-old pays £729 and the 5-year-old pays £569. The spacious family room is the most appropriate room to accommodate a family of four; upgrade for an additional £266 for the week (i.e. £38 x 7 nights), making a grand total of £3560.
Child prices on our holidays designed specially for families apply to children aged 15 or under (unless otherwise stated), and can vary according to the age of the child on the date of outward travel. Other rules relating to how the child price applies are laid out below, along with details of the included room type:
|Type of family holiday
||The child price applies when…
||the whole family (which must include 2 adults) shares the included room and vehicle (where applicable). An additional charge where only 1 adult is travelling is indicated in the price panel.
||a superior or family room, as stated in the price panel
||larger or smaller rooms as stated and priced in the price panel (a reduction applies in the case of smaller rooms)
|Hotel-to-hotel walking and cycling holidays (except 'Trails with a Donkey')
||2 people (adult or child) share a twin or double room, ie there needn’t be 2 accompanying adults
||standard twin or double room
||discounts apply for sharing larger or family rooms, or for an additional bed in a standard twin or double room.
|'Trails with a Donkey' only
||2 accompanying adults pay the full adult price and the whole family shares the included room and vehicle. 1 child pays the adult price if there is only 1 accompanying adult. See price panel of the holiday for full details.
||standard twin or double rooms for additional privacy; please call for prices.
|Villas and Cottages
||prices are expressed per property for the whole family. An additional charge is payable by the 3rd and each further family member staying at the Tyrolean Farmhouses; no additional charges elsewhere.
Infant charges for babies aged up to 2 years old depend on the type of holiday and your chosen method of travel, so please contact us for a quotation. Additional charges are payable locally for child and infant seats in hire cars, which should be requested at the time of booking. Some hoteliers and property owners also make a charge for supplying cots.
