   - Information and Registration Pack
   - Run the race of your life – Experience the world’s most exciting marathon race and help raise vital
       funds for vulnerable young people across the UK. (Please feel free to change if you can think of
       anything more inspiring!)
           Young people on the edge of society – not in education,
           employment or training – often get written off and forgotten.

           By running in the New York marathon in aid of Fairbridge you will help
           us to give more young people the confidence to make positive
           changes in their lives.

About Fairbridge
Every year Fairbridge helps around 4,000 vulnerable young people take
their first step towards a positive future. Most face multiple barriers to
leading a ‘normal’ life: they deal with issues such as homelessness,
substance misuse, poor literacy and mental health problems. Fairbridge
provides a new start – a chance to turn their lives around.

We offer young people opportunity and

About the New York City Marathon
The New York marathon began life in 1970 with just over one hundred competitors. From such humble
beginnings, the event has now become the world’s number one road race, attracting professional
competitors and amateurs from all over the world.

The circuit is 26.2 miles long and the route is spectacular – you’ll pass through all five boroughs of the city:
Staten Island, Brooklyn, Queens, The Bronx and Manhattan, and take in many of the famous sights
including the Empire State Building, Statue of Liberty and Central Park – where you’ll cross the finish line.

The New York City Marathon draws more than 100,000 applicants annually. Participation is limited to
38,000 and entrants are chosen largely by a lottery system. By signing up to run for Fairbridge you’re
guaranteed a place.

    best experiences

Raising your sponsorship
A deposit of £499 will need to be paid up-front to secure your place in the event. 75% of your sponsorship
target must be paid to Fairbridge by 19th July 2010. The remaining balance is due by 30th November 2010.
With some planning and enthusiasm, you’ll be amazed at how easy it is, and how fast the money comes
in! The scale of the challenge and the good cause that you’re fundraising for will hopefully encourage a
great response. Many fundraisers often find it easy to raise above and beyond the minimum sponsorship
required, and there’s no reason why this shouldn’t happen for you!

What is this Deposit?
Your deposit forms part of your package cost and is not an extra payment. £200 of this is the deposit that
Fairbridge has to pay our tour company, Sports Tours International, to secure your trip. The remaining £299
is the official race entry fee for the New York City Marathon.
If you pay your deposit out of your own pocket, you might be able to claim that money back,
depending on the amount that you can fundraise for us. If you raise £200 above your fundraising target
we can refund you the £200 Sports Tours International deposit. If you fundraise £499 above your
fundraising target we can refund you your full deposit of £499!

What happens if I don’t raise the amount required?
First of all – Don’t panic! Call us. We can offer you support and ideas if you’re struggling. If you’re
experiencing difficulties please let us know as soon as possible so that we can help you, as we have the
right to cancel your place if you don’t meet your sponsorship target before the event.

Remember you’re not on your own. With our ideas and support you will succeed. We’re also able to put
you in contact with other people taking part in the event so you can exchange fundraising tips and
ideas and support each other.

The more you put in, the more you get out – With some planning, enthusiasm and just a little charm you’ll
be amazed at how easy it can be to raise the money.

Sponsorship tips
   •   An absolute must – set up a fundraising page on Justgiving allows
       you to create your own personalised online fundraising page so that people can sponsor you
       online using a credit or debit card from anywhere in the world.
   •   The earlier you start your fundraising the easier it’ll be for you to reach your sponsorship target.
   •   Make sure that the first donation on your page is a big one – it sets a benchmark for other
   •   Develop a team of recruiting agents among family and close friends. Give them all a sponsorship
       form and ask them to enlist the support of their friends and contacts.
   •   Sit down and make a list of all your social circles: family, friends, clubs, PTAs, work collegues,
       clients, etc. Then list the individuals in each group who you can ask to sponsor you. You’ll
       probably find that you know more people than you first thought!
   •   Find out if your company operates match funding for employees’ charitable donations. Many
       companies will match what you raise pound-for-pound up to a certain limit. This is increasingly
       common in some of the larger firms and could double your fundraising efforts.
   •   If you are in business, put a footer on all of your work emails reminding contacts about your fund-
       raising venture and providing a link to your Justgiving webpage
   •   If you work for a company or are involved with any organisation that publishes internal
       communications, find out if you can publicise your efforts in it and add the address of your
       Justgiving page.

   •   Your local press may be interested to hear about what you're doing. This is a great opportunity to
       publicise your event to the local community and hopefully attract more supporters. Fairbridge has
       prepared a press release for you to use to promote your event to local newspapers, radio stations
       or even TV shows, which will be provided in your Welcome Pack when you sign up to the

Please note: Some of these events may require a special licence or insurance e.g. collecting money in a
public place. You may need to contact your local council for advice and permission. Fairbridge cannot
be held responsible for any fundraising activities you organise. If in doubt, please contact us.

Most importantly, don’t forget to ASK. Be persistent, confident, and know that you are doing a really great
thing. The best way to get people opening their wallets is to be passionate about your cause. Read our
young people’s stories; be informed about where your money is going and why we need your help. If
you’re anything like us you’ll soon want to shout about Fairbridge from the rooftops!
                                                                                                  Section 6

Frequently asked questions
How fit do I have to be to take part?
You need to have a reasonable level of fitness to take part, but you don’t have to be ‘super fit’ or a
professional athlete. We suggest that you slowly build up your fitness levels in the months leading up to
the marathon. Always check with your doctor first before embarking on any training programme.
Fairbridge cannot be held responsible for any injuries incurred through this event.

How far do I have to run?
Like all marathons, the New York marathon is 26.2 miles long.

How much support will I receive at the event?
Fairbridge staff will be out in New York to support you throughout the weekend. We will host a pasta
dinner the evening before the marathon, giving everyone a chance to stock up on carbs and get to
meet the rest of the Fairbridge team. We will also host a celebratory event on the Sunday evening, after
the marathon so you can celebrate in style!
Fairbridge’s New York marathon package is being run in conjunction with Sports Tours International (ATOL
NO: 2711). Sports Tours International representatives will be available for any enquiries and hands-on
support throughout the event.”

What about insurance?
All participants need to obtain their own insurance for the whole trip. This must include cover for travel,
health, accident and loss. We also advise participants to make sure that their insurance company knows
the full nature of the marathon in order that every aspect is covered.

When do I get my itinerary?
A detailed itinerary will be sent to you at least three weeks prior to your departure date.

How much money does Fairbridge get?
Fairbridge receives £800 from each runner who raises their minimum sponsorship target. This will go
directly towards our work with vulnerable young people. Any monies raised above and beyond your
minimum sponsorship target (less your deposit if you qualify for a refund) will go directly to supporting our
work with vulnerable young people across the UK.
                                                                                               Section 7

Terms and Conditions
Fairbridge’s Terms and Conditions of Entry
The following terms and conditions form the basis of the agreement between us Fairbridge and you the
participant in the New York City Marathon scheduled to be held on 7th November 2010 (“the Event”). You
agree that this is a complete statement of the position and that you have no other understandings.
1. Your trip is organised by Sports Tours International Ltd (referred to as STI) and we have a contract with
them to provide places for participators who are kindly sponsoring Fairbridge. As part of the overall
arrangements you have to agree to their terms and conditions which are set out overleaf and to which
you must signify your consent by signing where indicated. Without this consent we cannot enter you for
the Event. Please read carefully their terms and conditions and the remainder of our terms and conditions
which are to be governed by English law and which are as follows. If there is any conflict between the
two sets of terms and conditions ours will apply.
2. Your deposit of £499 needs to be paid in full for your place to be registered for the Event. You can pay
this deposit out of your own pocket (and it is refundable in full if you raise a further £499 for Fairbridge on
top of your minimum sponsorship amount - see 3 below). If you raise a further amount between £200 and
£499 on top of your minimum sponsorship amount you can claim back £200 (but no more).
3. The minimum amount of sponsorship money you must raise as a condition of taking part depends on
the package you choose. Of every package cost, £800 will go to Fairbridge as a donation. The
remainder is the direct cost that Fairbridge has to pay to STI for your trip.
4. By 19th July 2010 you must pay Fairbridge 75% of your minimum fundraising amount. If you do not meet
the above requirements you may forfeit your entry in the Event. The amount we receive will of course
include any payment for you from
5. By 30th November 2010 you agree to pay us the balance of your minimum sponsorship amount.
6. If you cannot take your place on the Event due to unforeseen circumstances, you must inform us
immediately. Please note that all funds raised are non-refundable. All communications about funds and
refunds should be made with us and not to STI.
7. You accept that taking part in the Event cannot be risk free and do so at your own risk. Unless we
Fairbridge are negligent or reckless we cannot be held responsible for any accident or injuries during the
Event. You should see a doctor for health/medical advice, etc. and you should not participate against
advice or if you are not fully fit and healthy. You are fully responsible for your own fitness and health.
8. If you are over 70 years of age or if you have a medical condition, please obtain a medical certificate
from your doctor to say that you are fit & healthy enough to participate in the Event.
9. You accept that if you injure someone else during the Event as a result of your negligence or
recklessness and if a claim is brought against Fairbridge as a result then you will indemnify Fairbridge
from the consequence of that claim. You are responsible for arranging insurance for your trip. Insurance
is not covered in your package cost.
10. You are responsible for staying within the law for public collections and fundraising. Some events, e.g.
raffles and public collections, may require a special licence or insurance. If in doubt please contact us.
11. All monies raised are the property of Fairbridge and must be forwarded as soon as they are received
– payable to ‘Fairbridge’.
12. You agree that we can make use of photos/digital recordings of you at the Event for our publicity
13. Please note particularly that in certain circumstances STI can levy surcharges and cancellation
charges. You would be responsible for these.

1. Your holiday contract

When you make a booking you guarantee that you have the authority to accept and do accept on behalf of your party the terms
of these booking conditions. A contract will exist as soon as we issue our confirmation invoice. This contract is made on the terms of
these booking conditions, which are governed by English Law, and the jurisdiction of the English Courts.

planned and does not allow the client to cancel the remainder of the holiday. The company’s liability is limited to the cost of the
entry fee. Non standard tour arrangements e.g. ones which might involve full “Apex” (Advanced purchase) or Low Cost Airline
fares, are subject to full payment at the time of booking. This also applies to insurance premiums and race/event costs (if relevant),
all of which are non refundable and you will be advised of this at the time of booking.

destination, and airport/port taxes and security charges (as at the time of booking) – details as shown in each tour itinerary

2. Your financial protection

The Package Travel, Package Holidays and Package Tours Regulations 1992 require us to provide security for the monies that you
pay for the package holidays booked from us and for your repatriation in the event of our insolvency. We provide this security by
way of an ATOL (number 2711) administered by the Civil Aviation Authority. When you buy an ATOL protected air holiday package
or flights from Sports Tours International, you will receive a Confirmation Invoice from us (or via our authorised agent through which
you booked) confirming your arrangements and your protection under our Air Travel Organiser’s Licence number 2711. In the
unlikely event of our insolvency, the CAA will ensure that you are not stranded abroad and will arrange to refund any money you
have paid to us for an advance booking. For further information visit the ATOL website at The price of our air
holiday packages includes the amount of £2.50 per person as part of the ATOL Protection Contribution (APC) we pay to the CAA.
This charge is included in our advertised prices. Not all our holidays or travel services offered and sold by us will be protected by the
ATOL scheme. Please ask us to confirm what protection may apply to your booking. Where you book a non-air inclusive holiday,
and we act as the principal, your money is financially protected by our ABTA bonding arrangement and if you book an
arrangement other than a package holiday, your monies are protected by way of a bond held by ABTA. Our tour operating ABTA
number is V1479.


We are a Member of ABTA, membership number A406X/V1479. We are obliged to maintain a high standard of service to you by
ABTA’s Code of Conduct. We can also offer you an arbitration scheme for the resolution of disputes arising out of, or in connection
with this contract. Further information on the Code and arbitration can be found on ABTA’s website The arbitration
scheme is arranged by ABTA and administered independently by IDRS, part of the Chartered Institute of Arbitrators. It provides for a
simple and inexpensive method of arbitration on documents alone with restricted liability on you in respect of costs. Full details will
be provided on request or can be obtained from the ABTA website. The scheme does not apply to claims for an amount greater
than £5,000 per person. There is also a limit of £25,000 per booking form. Neither does it apply to
claims which are solely in respect of physical injury or illness or their consequences. The scheme can however deal with
compensation claims which include an element of minor injury or illness subject to a limit of £1,000 on the amount the arbitrator can
award per person in respect of this element. The application for arbitration and Statement of Claim must be received by IDRS within
nine months of the date of return from the holiday. Outside this time limit arbitration under the Scheme may still be available if the
company agrees, but the ABTA Code does not require such agreement. For injury and illness claims, you may like to use the
ABTA/Chartered Institute of Arbitrators Mediation Procedure. This is a voluntary scheme and requires us to agree for mediation to go
ahead. The aim is to help you resolve your dispute in a quick and cost effective way. Details on request or from

4. Your Holiday Price

1) We reserve the right to alter the prices of any of the holidays shown in our brochure or website. You will be advised of the current
price of the holiday that you wish to book before your contract is confirmed.
2) When you make your booking you must pay a deposit of £100 per person (£200 in the case of non-European travel), or 30% of the
holiday price per person (whichever is the greater) plus the cost of any nonrefundable items such as airline seats that have been
paid in full or event entry fees. Note, with booking for the Etape du Tour, the deposit is 50%. The balance of the price of your travel
arrangements must be paid at least 12 weeks before your departure date. If the deposit and/or balance is not paid in time, we
shall cancel your travel arrangements. If the balance is not paid in time we shall retain your deposit. Where applicable, all monies
you pay to the travel agent are held by him on our behalf at all times. The price of your travel arrangements was calculated using
exchange rates quoted in the Financial Times Guide to World Currencies on 2nd October 2009 in relation of £1 Sterling to the
following currencies: US Dollar 1.5894; Euro 1.0883; Swiss Franc 1.6442; Australia Dollar 1.8339, Swedish Krona 11.1693.
3) Changes in transportation costs (including the cost of fuel) dues, taxes or fees chargeable for services (such as landing taxes or
embarkation or disembarkation fees at ports and airports), and exchange rates mean that the price of your travel arrangements
may change after you have booked. However there will be no change within 30 days of your departure. We will absorb and you
will not be charged for any increase equivalent to 2% of the price of your travel arrangements, which excludes insurance premiums
and any amendment charges. You will be charged for the amount over and above that, plus an administration charge of £1.00
per person together with an
amount to cover agents’ commission. If this means that you have to pay an increase of more than 10% of the price of your travel
arrangements, you will have the option of accepting a change to another holiday if we are able to offer one (if this is of equivalent
or higher quality you will not have to pay more but if it is of lower quality you will be refunded the difference in price), or cancelling
and receiving a full refund of all monies paid, except for any amendment charges. We will consider an appropriate refund of
insurance premiums paid if you can show that you are unable to transfer or reuse your policy. Should you decide to cancel for this
reason, you must exercise your right to do so within 14 days from the issue date printed on your final invoice. Should the price of your
holiday go down due to the changes mentioned above, by more than 2% of your holiday cost, then any refund due will be paid to
you. However, please note that travel arrangements are not always purchased in local currency and some apparent changes
have no impact on the price of your travel due to contractual and other protection in place.

5. If You Change Your Booking

If, after our confirmation invoice has been issued, you wish to change your travel arrangements in any way, for example your
chosen departure date or accommodation, we will do our utmost to make these changes but it may not always be possible. Any
request for changes to be made must be in writing from the person who made the booking or your travel agent. You will be asked
to pay an administration charge of £25 person, and any further cost we incur in making this alteration. You should be aware that
these costs could increase the closer to the departure
date that changes are made and you should contact us as soon as possible. Note: Certain travel arrangements (e.g. Apex Tickets,
low cost airline tickets, Golf green fees) may not be changeable after a reservation has been made and any alteration request
could incur a cancellation charge of up to 100% of that part of the arrangements. If the number of people on a booking changes,
the holiday price will be recalculated on the basis of the amended party size. Any resulting increase in the holiday price per person
is not a cancellation charge. A separate cancellation charge as detailed in Section 7 will be made for any persons cancelling and
the booking invoice amended accordingly.

6. If You Cancel Your Holiday

You, or any member of your party, may cancel your travel arrangements at any time. Written notification from the person who
made the booking or your travel agent on your behalf must be received at our offices. Since we incur costs in cancelling your travel
arrangements, you will have to pay the applicable cancellation charges up to the maximum shown in clause 7. Please note that
any costs, such as event entry fees which have been prepaid, may not be repaid in the event of cancellation. If the number of
persons booked changes, the holiday costs will be recalculated on the basis of the amended party size and you will need to pay
any difference in the holiday price. Note: If the reason for your cancellation is covered under the terms of your insurance policy,
you may be able to reclaim these charges.

7. If We Change or Cancel Your Holiday

It is unlikely that we will have to make any changes to your travel arrangements, but we do plan the arrangements many months in
advance. Occasionally, we may have to make changes and we reserve the right to do so at any time. Most of these changes will
be minor and we will advise you or your travel agent of them at the earliest possible date. We also reserve the right in any
circumstances to cancel your travel arrangements, for example, if the minimum number of clients required for a particular travel
arrangement is not reached by the balance due date. However, we will not cancel your travel arrangements less than 4 weeks
before your departure date, except for reasons of force majeure or failure by you to pay the final balance. If we are unable to
provide the booked travel arrangements, you can either have a refund of all monies paid or accept an offer of alternative travel
arrangements of comparable standard from us, if available (we will refund any price difference if the alternative is of a lower
value). If it is necessary to cancel your travel arrangements, we will pay to you compensation as set out in this clause. In
accordance with EU Regulation 2111/2005 we are required to advise you of the actual carrier operating your flight/connecting
flight/transfer. We do this by listing carriers to be used or likely to be used as follows: British Airways, American Airlines, Continental
Airlines, Thomson, Thomas Cook Airlines, Monarch Airlines, Jet, United Airlines, Ryanair, Easyjet, Flybe, Lufthansa, Air
France/KLM, Air Malta, Aer Lingus, Virgin Atlantic, Southwest Airlines, Spanair, SAS, Alitalia, Iberia, Emirates, Eithad, Qatar, Qantas,
Singapore Airlines, Air China, ANN. Any changes to the actual airline after you have received your tickets will be notified to you as
soon as possible and in all cases at check-in or at the boarding gate. Such a change is deemed to be a minor change. Other
examples of minor changes include alteration of your outward/return flights by less than 12 hours, changes to aircraft type, change
of accommodation to another of the same standard.

If we make a major change to your holiday, we will inform you or your travel agent as soon as reasonably possible if there is time
before your departure. You will have the choice of either accepting the change of arrangements, accepting an offer of
alternative travel arrangements of comparable standard from us if available (we will refund any price difference if the alternative is
of a lower value), or cancelling your booked holiday and receiving a full refund of all monies paid. In all cases, except where the
major change arises due to reasons of force majeure, we will pay compensation as detailed below:


Period before departure within which notice of a major change is notified to you/Amount you will receive from us

More than 84 days Nil
84 – 57 days £10

The compensation that we offer does not exclude you from claiming more if you are entitled to do so.

Force Majeure This means that we will not pay you compensation if we have to cancel or change your travel arrangements in any
way because of unusual or unforeseeable circumstances beyond our control. These can include, for example, war, riot, industrial
dispute (for example, the disruption or closure of airports or other transport systems), terrorist activity and its consequences, natural
or nuclear disaster, fire, adverse weather conditions. In the unlikely event of the cancellation/postponement of the sporting events
for whatsoever reason, Sports Tours International cannot be held responsible in any way for any monetary loss, inconvenience or
any other circumstances, including non-refundable events fees.

8. If You Have A Complaint

If you have a problem during your holiday, please inform the relevant supplier (e.g. your hotelier) and our resort representative
immediately who will endeavour to put things right. If your complaint is not resolved locally, please follow this up within 28 days of
your return home by writing to our Customer Services Department at Sports Tours International, 91 Walkden Road, Walkden,
Manchester M28 7BQ giving your booking reference and all other relevant information. Please keep your letter concise and to the
point. This will assist us to quickly identify your concerns and speed up our response to you. It is strongly recommended that you
communicate any complaint to the supplier of the services in question as well as to our representative without delay and complete
a report form whilst in resort or on the tour. If you fail to follow this simple procedure we will have been deprived of the opportunity
to investigate and rectify your complaint whilst you were in resort and this may affect your rights under this contract.

9. Our Liability to You
If the contract we have with you is not performed or is improperly performed by us or our suppliers we will pay you appropriate
compensation if this has affected the enjoyment of your travel arrangements. However we will not be liable where any failure in the
performance of the contract is due to: you; or a third party unconnected with the provision of the travel arrangements and where
the failure is unforeseeable or unavoidable; or unusual and unforeseeable circumstances beyond our control, the consequences of
which could not have been avoided even
if all due care had been exercised; or an event which we or our suppliers, even with all due care, could not foresee or forestall.

Our liability, except in cases involving death, injury or illness, shall be limited to a maximum of twice the cost of your travel
arrangements. Our liability will also be limited in accordance with and/or in an identical manner to
(a) The contractual terms of the companies that provide the transportation for your travel arrangements. These terms are
incorporated into this contract; and
(b) Any relevant international convention, for example the Montreal Convention in respect of travel by air, the Athens Convention
in respect of travel by sea, the Berne Convention in respect of travel by rail and the Paris Convention in respect of the provision of
accommodation, which limit the amount of compensation that you can claim for death, injury, delay to passengers and loss,
damage and delay to luggage. We are to be regarded as having all benefit of any limitation of compensation contained in these
or any conventions.

You can ask for copies of the transport companies’ contractual terms, or the international conventions, from our offices Sports Tours
International, 91 Walkden Road, Walkden, Manchester M28 7BQ, telephone 0161 703 8161.

Under EU law (Regulation 261/2004) you have rights in some circumstances to refunds and/or compensation from your airline in
cases of denied boarding, cancellation or delay to flights. Full details of these rights will be publicised at EU airports and will also be
available from airlines. However reimbursement in such cases will not automatically entitle you to a refund of your holiday cost from
us. Your right to a refund and/or compensation from us is set out in clause 6. If any payments to you are due from us, any payment
made to you by the airline will be deducted from this amount. If your airline does not comply with these rules you should complain
to the Air Transport Users’ Council on 020 7240 6061

Health and Safety standards applicable to the elements of the holiday booked with us should meet the local regulations of your
destination, however please note that these may not be the same as in the UK and may vary from destination to destination.
All tours descriptions are advised by us in good faith and every care is taken to ensure their accuracy. However, since we include so
much detail and since the tours are prepared up to 12 months in advance, there may be occasions when an advertised facility or
entertainment is not available during your own particular tour. Certain facilities e.g. swimming pools, require maintenance and
sometimes have to be temporarily withdrawn from use for such work to be done. Outdoor activities, beach services and water
sports for example may not operate for reasons such as unstable weather conditions or lack of support, or golf courses, bowling
greens etc may be closed for maintenance or private competitions. Similarly there may be occasions, especially during the low
season, where certain advertised schedules, entertainment or amenities are changed, cancelled or curtailed. Further, the
operation of certain amenities and facilities may be subject to local licensing laws or religious holiday. Government or local
authority restrictions may also dictate that a hotel or apartment limits certain facilities e.g. air-conditioning or water supply, in the
cause of conservation. Should any of these examples occur (or any other incidents of a similar nature), Sports Tours International will
not be liable for any loss or damages occurring as a result.

10. Prompt assistance in resort

If the contract we have with you is not performed or is improperly performed as a result of failures attributable to a third party
unconnected with the provision of the services, or as a result of failures due to unusual and unforeseeable circumstances beyond
our control, the consequences of which could not have been avoided even if all due care had been exercised, or an event which
we or our suppliers, even with all due care, could not foresee or forestall, and you suffer an injury or other material loss, we will offer
you such prompt assistance as is reasonable in the circumstances.

11. Passport, Visa and Immigration Requirements

Your specific passport and visa requirements, and other immigration requirements are your responsibility and you should confirm
these with the relevant Embassies and/or Consulates. We do not accept any responsibility if you cannot travel because you have
not complied with any passport, visa or immigration requirements.

12. Excursions

Excursions or other tours that you may choose to book or pay for whilst you are on holiday are not part of your package holiday
provided by us. For any excursion or other tour that you book, your contract will be with the operator of the excursion or tour and
not with us. We are not responsible for the provision of the excursion or tour or for anything that happens during the course of its
provision by the operator.

This brochure is our responsibility, as your tour operator. It is not issued on behalf of, and does not commit the airlines mentioned
herein or any airline whose services are used in the course of your travel arrangements. Please note that in accordance with Air
Navigation Orders in order to qualify for infant status, a child must be under 2 years of age on the date of its return flight.

13. Conditions of Carriage

Please note that the air carriers that we use will have their own Conditions of Carriage which you must comply with and these will
be incorporated as terms of this contract. Where there are material inconsistencies between these Booking Conditions and the
Conditions of Carriage the Conditions of Carriage will take precedence. We will supply a copy of the conditions of carriage
applicable to your holiday if you request them.


A. Data Protection
To ensure that your holiday runs smoothly, we need to supply your key information to specific suppliers involved in the organisation
of your holiday. We may occasionally contact you to inform you of products and services from Sports Tours International or
associated companies. Should you wish not to be kept up to date with this information, please contact us. You have the right to see
any information we may hold relating to yourself.

B. Health Regulations
We advise all customers to check what the latest health requirements are for travel to their chosen destination. Please consult your
doctor, practice nurse or travel health clinic and/or obtain the relevant health leaflets e.g. the D.O.H. leaflet “Protect your Health
Abroad” from your local Post Office or the Department of Health. Also consult the following websites for advice:, and For Foreign Office advice on traveling to other countries, please refer to

C. Tickets and Tours documents
These will be sent to you approximately 14 days before departure and may arrive by post or email.

D. Event Entry forms
All event entrants are obliged to fill in the appropriate official entry form, which we will send you. This form must be returned within 7
days, or the specified date for that event, to the issuing office or a specified location and are subject to the conditions of entry over
which we have no jurisdiction. Failure to return the signed entry form within the specified time could result in your race entry being
refused and your booking cancelled with the loss of all monies paid. All requested medical information must be supplied otherwise
the entry may be invalid.

E. Golf

Please note that changes or cancellation of any green fees may result in 100% green fee cancellation charge, depending on the
golf course. We cannot be held responsible for the actual playing conditions of the golf courses whether caused by course
maintenance, climate conditions etc. We do request all maintenance schedules from the golf courses that we work with and
where we are advised we pass this information onto you. Please take note that maintenance schedules are subject to change due
to the weather conditions. The large majority of golf courses now require golfers to present an official handicap certificate prior to
course entry. Therefore we strongly recommend you take a Certificate with you regardless as clubs can charge their regulations.
Please note that virtually all airlines now charge for the carriage of golf clubs with the main exception being the long haul routes.
Charges will be advised at the time of booking. When making your booking you will be asked for your preferred days of play,
courses and start times. Charges will be advised at the time of booking, please take note of the following:
 You will receive an invoice confirming your requested invoice;
 When all the clubs respond we will send you a final invoice confirming “actual times”;
 Once you are in receipt of the confirmed “actual times” we reserve the right to charge an “amendment fee” if you want to
change times again;
 Cancellation of “actual times” may incur cancellation charges up to the value of the pre-paid green fee, subject to the
cancellation policy of the course involved;
 If the golf clubs subsequently change your “actual times” for a Club competition etc we will try to ensure a suitable alternative is
 Golf clubs reserve the right to mark up matches to 4 balls;
 Where a golf club imposes handicap limits and handicap certificate conditions we will pass on your handicap details but it is your
responsibility to comply;
 Overseeding and hollow-tining can effect certain courses at certain times, we will advise you of these so alternative arrangements
can be made (providing we are notified)
 Your golf vouchers will be issued as green fees paid in advance. These will either be issued with your travel documents, by the hotel
or local representative depending on the destination. Please note that vouchers should be presented to the caddy master at least
15 minutes prior to tee off. Unused vouchers will only be refunded if course closure has prevented play, please note that we will
require written confirmation from the course prior to processing the refund.

Whilst we endeavour to meet your requests for specific courses, days and times, these are subject to availability and we cannot
guarantee we can meet them. Accordingly requests are not binding with us.

Buggies – please note that the majority of European courses see buggy hire as an extra and in most cases the courses can’t
guarantee the supply as they view it is an enquiry and not a must. Due to the inconsistent supply of golf buggies, we do not pre-
book buggies. For golfers travelling to the US the courses tend to have mandatory buggy hire.

F. Cycling/Triathlons

Where Sports Tours International arranges flights for cyclists and triathletes, the company cannot accept responsibility for the flight
carrier failing to carry the cycle on the same flight. The company will do everything in its power to expedite speedy delivery, but this
is outside the control of the company.

G. Baggage
Typically one average sized suitcase only per person is permitted – weight allowances do vary dependant on the carrier, so please
check with the carrier. Infants do not have any baggage allowance. Due to recent security alerts, the approved items for carriage
within the cabin or aircraft hold have been subject to change. Please refer to your carrier for the very latest information prior to
departure, and to the departure airport website and the Department for Transport

H. Hotel Check In/Check Out

The standard international practice is to let rooms from mid afternoon on the day of arrival until mid morning of the day of
departure. Occasionally when you arrive at your accommodation, you may have to wait a short while until your room is ready.
Similarly, if you are leaving the destination on a flight later in the day, you may be required to check out of your hotel room earlier in
the day. In some cases, you may be able to extend you stay in your room or have access to facilities at the accommodation to
change and refresh yourself in, but we cannot guarantee this, and this should be arranged with the accommodation

I. Room Sharing

If you are travelling alone and do not wish to pay the applicable supplement for a single room, we will, if you wish and subject to
availability, match you up with someone of the same sex on a “twin to share” basis wherever possible. If you select a room sold on
this “twin to share” basis you will be sharing with another participant on the tour and not have sole use of the room. In such cases
we are not allowed to give any details regarding the name, address or phone contact of the parties requesting sharing
arrangements. Please note that where a room has been booked for one person only, whether it be a single room or the sole
occupancy of a larger room, no other person is permitted to stay in that room, even if there is physically space for that person.
