BRITISH AIRWAYS RETIRED STAFF ASSOCIATION

NORTH WALES AND SNOWDONIA 20/24 SEPTEMBER 2021


A mini break has been organised to North Wales and Snowdonia.

The cost will be £510 for members and £520 per person in a twin/double room to include coach, excursions, bed breakfast and evening meal . The cost unfortunately, and please remember this is beyond our control, for a single supplement is £100 for the duration plus we can only have 4 singles at this supplement. The only consolation is that you will be in a double room but we do realise that single people are penalised but it is the hotel who sets the price. A deposit of £50 per person is payable on booking. We do not have a price for insurance for 2021 but as soon as we receive this we will inform you. It is not obligatory but insurance does cover you if you have to cancel through illness/accident.
