How does a group booking work?


1.     Tell us what your requirements are by calling 0844 571 4856, by e-mail to groups@nationalholidays.com or by completing our on-line form here.
2.     When we have the details we will let you know how long it will take us to provide you with a no obligation quote- and arrange a time suitable with you to go through this quote. 3.     If you want to amend or change this quote then that is not a problem - we want this to be right for you and so will spend as much time as required to ensure you have the perfect group holiday. 4.     When you are happy - you can then start to promote to your group - we will hold the holiday for you to an agreed date when you can then gather the deposits from your group. 5.     Let us provide you with some leaflets and posters to make your job a little easier. 6.     We can confirm your group holiday when you have sufficient deposits from your members - but don’t worry if you don’t have all of the deposits we can work with you on this - we know how hard your job can be and we want to make it easier for you! 7.     We can then send you your confirmation and you can continue to sell to your group - and then provide us with the full balances when these are due. 8.     We can be on hand for any questions or help you might need - with any special request etc. 9.     All that is left is to look forward to a great group holiday!

Tips on organising your group

Here are a few tips on organising your group holiday.

Many group organisers have been doing this for years but there are some who are only just starting to think about organising a group holiday - perhaps for a group of friends or family, or for their local association - so here are a few tips we have picked up from our great group organisers:

Enjoy It!
It really can be great fun organising a group holiday - so try to enjoy the holiday at the planning stage!

Always make sure you are protected!
Whichever holiday company you choose - please make sure they offer full financial protection so that you and your groups’ hard earned money is safe!

National Holidays is a member of the Bonded Coach Holidays sector of the Confederation of Passenger Transport - providing bonded financial security for you and your groups total peace of mind!

Research
The internet is quite a tool- and it has so many ideas for great short breaks and holiday - perhaps you are after something a bit different from the rest - but don’t forget to ask us - we have so many offers and deals from all of the top attractions - and also lots of the smaller ones too!

Let us help you!
We are delighted to help or advise on any holiday - if we don’t know a particular detail we have a team of quite superb drivers who have literally been everywhere and done just about everything - and so they can offer their advice also!

Know your groups budget!
We all know how easy it is to get excited and let our minds wander - but keep your groups budget in mind - you may need to change the star rating of a hotel to afford to include entrance into a stately home for example - BUT remember we have unrivalled buying power around the UK and Europe - you will be amazed what you can afford with National Holidays!

Oh those single rooms!
Keep in mind that many hotels do not have many single rooms and so try to keep as many bookings as possible in twin bedrooms or double rooms!

Ask for money early!
Always ask your group members to give you the money for the holiday at least 2 to 3 weeks before your balance is due - this way when you come to pay for the balance of the holiday you should have it all in!

... and again... Enjoy It!
... remember it is your holiday also!
