    You must carry your valid 10-year passport and correct visa with you. Please make sure it does not expire during your accessible holiday period. All the documents must be valid for a further 6 months following your return date to the UK. Holders of non-British passports (and those issued abroad) should check with the appropriate consulate for possible visa requirements. Failure to ensure you have the correct passport or visa may mean cancelling your disabled accessible holiday and you will be liable to pay full cancellation charges and any other costs. As travel regulation constantly changes, we as tour operators are unable to provide up-to-date information concerning such requirements. It is important that you comply with the necessary travel regulations, especially visas, insurance policies and passport requirements. Check with your travel agent or directly with the appropriate consulate of the country involved. You may be asked to produce your passports at various tourist sights; failure in doing so may result in refusal of admission.
