ITALIAN GREAT ESCAPES
GAIL'S GREAT ESCAPES LLC
We are pleased you have chosen to join us on one of our small group tours to Italy. We are looking forward to helping you get to know these areas of Italy we enjoy so much, and introducing you to life in Italian small villages.
Part of the charm of living in a small village is life is slower and conveniences are not taken for granted. The ancient tile floors are uneven, the stone stairways are worn, the hill towns are steep and require lots of walking. This is all part of experiencing something old, something new, something different.
We try to plan for every eventuality, but of course that is impossible. We will do everything we can to ensure you have a safe, enjoyable time with us.
To make a reservation for one of our tours, please contact me by phone or e-mail to be sure space is available. Once we have confirmed availability, please complete the form below and return to us, along with your deposit of $500 per person. The reservation form and check must be received within one week after space is confirmed.
Checks should be made payable to:
Gail’s Great Escapes, LLC.
and mailed to:
1058 Sasha Lane
Roswell, GA 30075
A $500 per person deposit is required at the time of booking, payable within seven days of reservation confirmation. The balance is due 90 days before the first day of the tour. For tours booked less than 90 days in advance, full payment is required at reservation.
Cancellations and Refunds
If you have booked your personal group of seven people for your own week, your deposit, paid to the agency through me, is non-refundable. If I am able to fill your week, your deposit will be refunded.
Cancellation fees are as follows:
- 91 + days (from the first day of the trip): $250/person
- 61 - 90 days: 25% of the total price
- 31 - 60 days: 50% of the total price
- 0 - 30 days: 100% of the total price
Once the week of your tour has started, no refunds will be issued for any unused portion.
Cancellation fees apply regardless of the reason. However, if you notify us of a cancellation prior to 90 days in advance, you may apply your deposit to a future trip without a cancellation fee, unless you have booked the whole house for your own personal group. NO REFUND can be made for tour activities in which a traveler does not participate. If a traveler leaves the tour early for any reason, no refund can be made for unused accommodations or activities included in the price of the tour.
