Check availability on our website or with our office.  Because we run small-group holidays, the most popular tours can fill quickly - as tour details often appear on our website early, this can sometimes be even before the brochure comes out - so do BOOK EARLY!

Having said that, we occasionally receive unexpected last-minute cancellations, so it's always worth enquiring about vacancies on any tour - even those departing in just a few weeks time.

Single room availability is generally limited so these are often the first rooms to be filled. Please plan ahead even earlier if you require one of these.


We are happy to hold Provisional Reservations made by telephone or email for up to 7 days. After this, we do require a Booking Form and deposit to confirm your place on tour. Any unconfirmed space will be released.

Booking is easy! Just follow these simple steps:

Step 1

Step 2
Book Online via our website, using your debit or credit card for the deposit payment. It’s quick, simple, safe and secure. Click the Book This Tour button that appears alongside every tour.

Bookings can also be made by post. If you have a copy of our latest brochure, you'll find a Booking Form enclosed.

Alternatively, you can download and print a PDF version of our Booking Form from the website. To reserve your place, mail your completed Booking Form off to us, together with a cheque made payable to Limosa Holidays or debit card details as a deposit.

We give detailed Payment Information at the foot of this page.
