Club Vass Active Holidays prices are accurate at the date uploaded but may be subject to change e.g. if on full packages (including flight) we have exhausted our own flight allocation and have to buy in additional seats to create additional holidays, and those seat costs differ significantly from those of our flight allocation, then our prices may change to reflect the differing flight cost. Similarly, if we have to secure additional accommodation from that advertised to create a holiday, the cost of the holiday using the additional accommodation may vary from that included in our advertised holidays. Also, should any governmental taxes and duties (both UK and overseas) be increased, or applied additionally to air travel, from that anticipated at the time of costing our holidays, such increases will necessarily have an effect on our prices.
At the time of making your booking we will quote you the up to date holiday price and by paying the deposit (or full balance as appropriate) immediately the holiday price on your booking will be confirmed. Once your booking is confirmed the cost of your holiday will not normally be subject to any change. This does not apply to invoice errors or omissions. Your booking may be subject to subsequent price change for reasons of your amendment or cancellation (details of applicable charges are given in our Booking Terms & Conditions). Once a booking has been made, any subsequent offers and discounts cannot be applied retrospectively, equally we will not retrospectively increase your holiday cost should our prices increase.
To book, a deposit is required (£125 per person for holidays including charter based flight to Club Vassiliki and overseas packages to Club Dahab). The balance of the price of your holiday must be paid at least 9 weeks before your departure date (this may vary should we have to purchase seats on your behalf from airlines or operators who require earlier balance payment dates). Should you wish to pay the holiday cost by credit or debit card a surcharge will apply to the total of the monies being paid by card to cover the card merchant processing costs. (Club Vass does not have its own merchant facilities for card payment processing. Payments by card have to be processed via Jetaway2 Limited, a Member of the Travel Trust Association No U3839. Any monies taken by them, in respect of Club Vass Active Holidays bookings, through debit/credit card payments is held in trust until they are paid to Club Vass Active Holidays. A fee of 3.6% (3% plus VAT) is applied to all payments taken by this method, to cover the charges made by the Travel Trust Association, and as the holiday booking is made with Jetaway2 acting as agent on behalf of the client in booking the Club Vass holiday, then holiday balance payments MUST be paid by the same method and the 3.6% fee will similarly apply).Payments by internet banking or cheque carry no additional cost.
If the holiday balance payment is not paid in time, we may necessarily have to cancel your holiday and retain your deposit and cancel any arrangements made with airlines, flight operators and accommodation owners made on your behalf, in order that we are not faced with cancellation fees from such companies or persons, greater than the deposit we have retained. In such instances should you wish to reinstate the holiday the deposit will not be refunded and a new booking have to be made at the prevailing holiday price. It is important therefore to ensure the holiday balance payment is made on or before the appropriate time.
Weekly daytime charter flights operate Sundays to Prevesa airport during the summer, May to October. We include Gatwick flights in our Vassiliki holiday prices. Only Manchester charter flights are a possible alternative but these usually carry a flight supplement and the cost of a taxi transfer as the Manchester flights don't coincide with the Gatwick flights that our transfer coach meets. Transfer to resort just over 1 hr.
Weekly charter flights and low cost schedule service carriers operate on various days of the week to Sharm el Sheikh airport year round. UK departure points include Gatwick, Luton, Stansted, Bournemouth, Birmingham, East Midlands, Manchester & Glasgow. Our Dahab holiday prices DO NOT include flights - we can quote separately for charter based flights or you can look to book your own flights on one of the low cost carriers. Transfer to resort approx. 1 hour (resort transfers are included in our prices).
Rooms - we can accept special requests for certain rooms within each category of accommodation but for operational reasons these cannot be guaranteed.
Our policy on windsurfing is that clients can use any of our range of boards and rigs - there is no need to specify any board size on booking.
Travel insurance is required for our holidays. You do not have to book our recommended insurance but if you make your own arrangements for travel insurance please check that it covers you and your party for injury to yourself and third party liability in case of injury to others whilst participating in any of the watersports and other activities we offer. We have arranged a policy with our insurance broker that covers these items – They offer a Specialist Tours & Activities Policy that includes full cover for windsurfing and our other activities as well as general travel cover. You can book this quickly and simply on line direct with our insurance broker using the insurance link on our website.

For UK Passport holders a travel visa is not normally required for
travel to Club Vassiliki (Greece) or Club Dahab (Egypt) if simply
visiting the Sinai region where Dahab is located (British Nationals
travelling to Dahab only, for up to 14 days, do not require a visa, they
will receive a free entry permission stamp upon arrival).
However visas are required if intending to visit other areas of Egypt such as the Nile delta or if planning to go diving - these can be bought on arrival at Sharm El Sheik (cost approx. £12). The cost is about US$15 but GBP is also accepted. As the cost of visa often changes, please check prior to departing. It's a good idea to have the correct money to hand and to buy the visa from the bank kiosksat the airport. This visa can alternatively be obtained in the UK by purchasing for £15 from the Egyptian Consulate, 2 Lowndes Street, LONDON, SWIX 9ET. Tel: 0207 235 9719. Open 0900-1300.
Non-UK Passport holders should check with the appropriate consulate as to required travel documentation prior to booking. At the time of publication no compulsory vaccinations were required for British Citizens visiting any of our holiday destinations, however, various are strongly recommended, especially to Egypt. Please check with your medical practitioner for up to date information on recommended inoculations. All clients are responsible for the provision of necessary valid documents for their own travel abroad and own health requirements.
