Your booking once accepted and confirmed in writing to you represents a contract between all persons named on the booking form and Italian Days SRL.
By booking on behalf of other participants, you are deemed to be the designated contact person for every participant included on that booking. This means that you are responsible for making all payments due in connection with your Tour booking, notifying the Tour Operator or your travel agent if any changes or cancellations are required and keeping your party informed.
By booking on behalf of another person or persons, you represent and warrant that you have obtained all required consents. You are responsible for verifying that any information you provide on behalf of another participant is complete and accurate and the Tour Operator will under no circumstances be liable for any errors or omissions in the information provided to complete a booking.
- Price and Payment
Prices are in Euro valid as published in the confirmed offer. Changes in transportation costs, including the cost of fuel, duties, taxes or fees chargeable for services and exchange rates, mean that the price of your travel arrangements may change after you have booked. Italian Days SRL reserves the right to charge for any increase if there is a change within 30 days of your departure. We will endeavour to notify you of any change in advance. You may at that time cancel your booking and you will be entitled to a full refund if Italian Days is notified at least 24 hours before departure.
In order not to incur penalties for cancellations of excursion bookings, these must be communicated to the Tour Operator at least 2 days before the scheduled excursion date. However, please refer to the individual cancellation policies of the tours offered. No refund will be possible for those cancellations with less than 1 days prior to the booked tour or no show.
All amendments/changes must be notified to us in writing by the person who made the original booking. We reserve the right to make alterations to your booking if necessary. If alteration is necessary we will endeavour to make sure that changes are minor and we will advise you at the earliest possible date.
If a major change becomes necessary we will inform you as soon as is reasonably possible. A major change is one that involves a material change to the advertised tour, the time of departure or return by more than twelve hours, or offering accommodation with a lower official classification than advertised. When a major change occurs, provided it does not arise from circumstances amounting to force majeure (see below), you will have the choice of either accepting the change of arrangements or cancelling your booking. We will not pay you compensation if we have to cancel or change your travel arrangements in any way because of unusual or unforeseeable circumstances beyond our control. These can include, for example, war, riot, industrial dispute, terrorist activity and its consequences, natural or nuclear disaster, fire, adverse weather conditions, epidemics and pandemics, unavoidable technical problems with transport.
In the unlikely event that you have experienced any problems, you should in the first instance report the matter to a representative of Italian Days SRL and should be reported within 15 days of travel date. If the matter is not then satisfactorily resolved please address any complaints to Italian DAys SRL, Galleria Ugo Bassi 1, 40121 Bologna (BO), Italy.

It is particularly important that we are advised of any disabilities and also if you intend to bring any specialised equipment such as a wheelchair with you. If you have suffered from a serious medical condition recently, then you should consult with your Doctor about your fitness to travel.
There is no particular dress code required, however we strongly recommend travellers to wear comfortable clothes, walking shoes, sunhat in warm weather and always check the forecasts the day before.
