How to Book

Sunvil, Our Booking Agent

How to Book

Early booking is advisable, as the tours can fill up quickly. The tours in 2011,'12 and '13 were almost all full within 1 week of the brochure being issued. indicates places limited, eg due to limited rooms.

At present there is no direct online booking service.


All bookings should be made on the booking form, which also includes full terms and conditions, to be sent directly to our booking agent Sunvil with the appropriate deposit and insurance cost.
You may download and print a copy of the booking form here; alternatively you may request an NHT/Sunvil Holidays Booking Form and Booking Conditions from Bob Gibbons.

Please could everyone make sure that the booking form has the following in addition to the holiday and address details:

  • Full names, as shown on the passport, of everyone booking

  • Passport number, date of issue, date of expiry, place of issue and where citizen of – all now required by the airlines

  • A mobile phone number if you have one.

Re: booking conditions on the booking form

Please note that the general booking terms, conditions and information are from Sunvil’s general holiday conditions, and the page numbers given refer to further information in their brochure. These conditions apply except that occasionally NHT standards exceed Sunvil’s, such as in the question of absorbing currency fluctuations.


Insurance for foreign tours is essential. Sunvil offers very competitive schemes - see booking form, or we need to know that you have made other arrangements. In 2007, we had to cancel a tour because of an airline strike, and discovered as a result that some people’s insurers do not cover refunds due to cancellation by strike action, and 2010 was even more complicated with ash clouds and strikes! Please check what your insurer covers, unless you’re prepared to take the risk of not having the money refunded.


This year, we’re printing ex-flight prices in case people prefer to make their own travel arrangements. If possible, please let us know that you are doing this at the time of booking, as airlines are increasingly requiring the full cost of the flights, for named individuals, at the time of booking the flight.

Please let us know if you have any special dietary or other requirements, and we will do our best to accommodate them.
