Frequently Asked Questions

How can I pay for my booking?

We accept payments over the phone by debit or credit card, or if you are visiting us in at our Travel Centre on site, by cheque or cash. All payments are accepted free of charge.

Can I redeem gift vouchers online?

To redeem a Roberts Travel Group gift voucher against any of our tours, holidays or day trips, you will need to book with one of our helpful advisors here at our Hugglescote Travel Centre.

When will I receive further information and travel documents after making my booking?

You will receive all documents related to your travel approximately two weeks prior to departure. This typically includes information concerning pick-up times, informing you what time to arrive at our Hugglescote depot or chosen departure point.

If I lose my booking confirmation how do I request a replacement?

It is not essential for you to have your booking confirmation in order to travel with us, but we will be happy to supply you with a duplicate at no charge.

If I book a long time in advance, will I receive a reminder of when my balance is due?

Although we do not send reminders out directly to you, we will contact you by telephone or e-mail should your balance become overdue by more than a few days.

Can I take a wheelchair or mobility scooter?

Due to the variety of tours and holidays we have on offer and their varied itineraries we recommend that you contact one of our helpful advisors to discuss mobility requirements before you book.

Are Children allowed on coach Holidays?

For the vast majority of our tours Children are welcome to join as passengers, but we will always recommend speaking to one of our Travel Advisors before booking if you are unsure about any aspect of our coach holidays and day trips.

How much luggage can I take with me on my holiday?

Our recommended guideline is no more than one medium-sized suitcase per person, and a small amount of cabin baggage able to be stored securely in the spaces provided or held. We have a weight limit of 15KG per person.

Will there be a toilet on my coach and will there be comfort stops whilst travelling?

It is our intention to always make a comfort stop on our trips where time allows and it is written in the itinerary, and to also send all of our tours out on a vehicle with an on-board toilet. However, in certain exceptional circumstances it may be necessary for us to change the vehicle type for operational reasons. We would only do so after all passengers travelling on that tour had been contacted to gain their consent to do so first.

What is the pick-up charge if I live locally?

We offer a free complimentary pickup service on our Holiday packages for customers living within a specified area, and will collect and return you and your luggage to your front door for free, allowing you total peace of mind from start to finish on your holiday. For anyone living outside of our collection area we operate a free departure point collection service picking up from a range of locations. If neither if these options is suitable for you we will still be able to collect you from your home for a surcharge, but will always recommend that customer enquire with us before making their booking.

Your cancellation will take effect from the date on which we or our agent receive your written confirmation of your cancellation. For a full list of terms and conditions related to cancellations please refer to our Trading charter and Booking conditions, or contact one of our advisors.

What if my tour is cancelled?

Are my seats guaranteed for my booking?

We will always try our best to follow the vehicle seating plans shown and provide accurate seat number information, however it is not always possible on some tours. Please note that we do not allocate seats on our feeder service or on optional excursions for tours.
