Day Tours Booking Terms & Conditions 2021

  1. All tours in the 2021 programme in the UK are £160.00 per person. All those who retained their places in re-scheduled tours will have them at the 2020 cost. The cost includes coffee in the morning, a two-course lunch with wine, afternoon tea. Because of Covid-19 and social distancing requirements, no coach transport will be provided and so travel between the gardens will be by car.

  2. The group sizes are limited, so we recommend that places are reserved either by email or telephone. Please do not send payment until you have confirmation that places are available. Once availability is confirmed, the booking form and payment in full must be received by Border Lines within five days of the reservation being made. Places on tours cannot be held longer than this. Payment may be made preferably by bank transfer or by cheque, payable to Border Lines. Account details can be found on the booking form. A receipt for your payment and directions to the gardens will be emailed to you. Please acknowledge receipt of this email and please tell us if you do not receive the directions and starting times for the day.

  3. To avoid inconvenience to both the other members of the group and the garden owners, we shall not wait for latecomers. If you are unavoidably late, then please call James Bolton, who will give you directions to the next meeting point.

  4. Please inform us of any dietary requirements/allergies when making your booking.

  5. No refunds will be given for cancellations. You may transfer your place to a friend, but are requested to inform Border Lines in writing or by email, giving the name and contact details of the recipient.

  6. If the owner’s personal circumstances change, Border Lines reserves the right to change or cancel the tour. In the event of cancellation of a tour, for whatever reason, you will be offered a refund of the cost of the day only.

  7. Please be aware that while the owners and Border Lines have made every effort to ensure your safety in the gardens, there may be, particularly in wet weather, slippery slopes and paths and other hazards.  If you require assistance in the gardens please inform us.

  8. Border Lines, James Bolton Garden Tours Ltd and the garden owners cannot accept responsibility for loss or damage to you, or your personal effects, during your visit to the garden, which you enter at your own risk. Cars are also parked at your own risk and no responsibility can be taken for your vehicle or its contents.

  9. Places on the tours can only be booked once you have read and accepted these terms. Your payment will confirm your acceptance.
