At Sportive Breaks virtually all our trips are guaranteed to run. Some of our guided cycling tours, warm weather cycling weeks and weekenders however require a minimum number of participants to enable us to operate them.
We reserve the right to cancel any holiday where this minimum number is not achieved. You will be advised before your booking is accepted of the minimum number applicable to your holiday unless the trip is already guaranteed to run. Failure to achieve the applicable minimum number does not, however, oblige us to cancel.
Trip status labels
- No label -> The trip is not subject to minimum numbers, so is guaranteed to go ahead.
- Available -> Open for bookings. Please hold off with booking flights.
- Guaranteed Departure -> You are free to book your flights and other travel arrangements.
- Limited Availability -> Guaranteed to depart but only a few places remain.
Once the minimum number has been reached, the trip status will change from ‘Available’ to ‘Guaranteed to Depart’. Once a trip is guaranteed to depart you are free to book your flights and make other travel arrangements. If the trip status is ‘Limited’ then we have only a small number of spaces available for booking. If you are unsure about the trip status, please email or call our office.
We will notify you of cancellation for this reason by the date by which full payment of your trip cost must be received by us (normally 12 weeks before departure).
Please note that we will not be liable for any costs, expenses, or losses you incur (for example, in respect of flights) because of the cancellation of any trip due to lack of minimum numbers. You are accordingly recommended not to incur any non-refundable expenditure until you have received confirmation that your trip is guaranteed to operate or after the deadline for cancellation for this reason if later.
