Un-Escorted Package Tours
We recognise that nowadays with use of the internet, many runners prefer to travel independently and make their own arrangements at races. As well as offering our own packages we thought it would be a great idea to offer guidance on how to put a running race weekend holiday together and indeed make it easier for runners to share ideas on where to stay, where to visit and any other tips that they have learned and think might be useful to others.
Under our Unescorted Package Tour you will be guided through the elements of building your own running race holiday to some of the more popular race venues. This will include flights, conveniently placed hotel accommodation, transfer information, insurance, race entry and tips about the race and course itself. More often than not the hotels listed on the official race website are not the closest to the race Start/Finish as they are tied to a local agent - Our recommended hotels are the best located and suit varied budgets! For some races we can even provide a photo trail from the airport to the hotel, providing you with support at a crucial time. We know how daunting arrival at an unfamiliar foreign airport can be.
Our www.runningcrazy.com booking system and calendar will expand as time goes by and more and more runners provide input.
The Package Travel and Linked Travel Arrangements Regulations 2018
Your rights are as follows:
The price of the package may only be increased if specific costs rise (for instance fuel prices), and if expressly provided for in the contract, and in any event not later than 20 days before the start of the package. If the price increase exceeds 8% of the price of the package, the traveller may terminate the contract. If the organiser reserves the right to a price increase, the traveller has a right to a price reduction if there is a decrease in the relevant costs.
Travellers may terminate the contract without paying any termination fee and get a full refund of any payments if any of the essential elements of the package, other than the price, are changed significantly. If before the start of the package the trader responsible for the package cancels the package, travellers are entitled to a refund and compensation where appropriate.
Additionally, travellers may at any time before the start of the package terminate the contract in return for an appropriate and justifiable termination fee.
If, after the start of the package, significant elements of the package cannot be provided as agreed, suitable alternative arrangements will have to be offered to the traveller at no extra cost. Travellers may terminate the contract without paying any termination fee, where services are not performed in accordance with the contract and this substantially affects the performance of the package and the organiser fails to remedy the problem.
The organiser has to provide assistance if the traveller is in difficulty.
