A 30% deposit is required to secure your tour. Taking advantage of the non-refundable rate requires full payment upon registration and is only available until March 31st of the tour year. Price does not include cost resulting from a failure to arrive at the pick-up location on time.
Reservations, deposits and payment
Reservations can be made by sending us an email to [email protected]
Your payment depends on the type of price applied to your booking based on your request or depending on the time when the booking is made. The tour is reserved upon receipt of the registration form and thirty percent (30%) deposit. The deposit is credited against the total tour cost. To receive the early-bird discount, passengers must complete payment three months prior to departure. Taking advantage of the non-refundable rate requires complete payment upon registration by January 31st of the tour year.
Cancellation fee and refunds
Passengers cancelling a tour after registration will be subject to a cancellation fee of €300 per person. Notice of cancellation must be received in writing by Normandy American Heroes, 102 rue Saint Jean, 14400 Bayeux, France, more than 90 days prior to departure for a full refund (less cancellation fee). If cancellation is received by us between 90 and 60 days of the departure date, the passenger will forfeit their deposit. If cancellation is received by us between 30 and 60 days of tour departure, the passenger will be responsible for fifty percent (50%) of the tour cost. If cancellation is received by us less than 30 days before the departure date, the passenger shall be responsible for the total cost of the tour.
Tour postponement by the customer shall be treated the same as cancellation. Certain special promotions and offers are non-refundable, and will be clearly stated as such.
International Travel Insurance
Travel insurance is not included in the price of the tour. We recommend that you purchase a travel insurance package. The most important travel insurance provisions are those covering refunds for last minute cancellation and for emergency medical coverage.
All prices are quoted in Euros. Payment can be made by Visa, MasterCard and American Express. Our bank account is Euros based, meaning that there will be conversion fees added. Any fees associated with the payment transfer will be incurred by the passenger.
