Refunds will not be offered if the course is open but the client decides not to play. Handicap certificates or cards may be required at some courses. The Company does not accept responsibility for caddy services as caddies are not direct employees of the golf clubs and it is the caddie’s responsibility to arrive at the correct time. We can request caddies at the courses should customers require it but please note they are not guaranteed. Caddy fees are payable directly on the day by the client.
Accommodations: The company assesses and reassesses allaccommodationsrecommended and used in our itineraries. Accommodation is generally inclusive of full Irish breakfast unless you have elected to book self catering. Should any accommodation not be available after your quotation an alternative of similar standard will be offered. Itineraries include standard room types unless otherwise stated. Should you wish to upgrade your room type many accommodations will have upgraded room types to offer with incremental costs as the type ascends.
Rental Cars: Car rental inclusions vary with each rental company but generally hire will usually include Unlimited Mileage; Collision Damage Waiver (CDW), Theft Protection (TP) and Third Party Insurance. Age limits apply as follows:

Deposit amounts are required at the rental desk for CDW excess & fuel. A valid credit card is required in all cases. Optional insurances are sold directly at the car rentals desk.

Also in order to adhere to regulations a driver may not work for more than six consecutive days without taking his weekly rest, either one or two days off, therefore the same driver may not be able to remain with the group for the duration of the stay. The customer is liable for all damages to the vehicle.
Additional Excursions and Activities: Other suppliers including but not limited to excursion providers and restaurants that are payable directly by the customer are not run, supervised, or controlled in any way by Henry Golf Tours.

Changes to a reserved schedule are possible subject to availability and we will not charge fees for amendments within reason, however if we deem the changes excessive or there is an accumulation of changes an administration fee may be implemented but this will be notified to you before we proceed with any changes.
Please note that apart from any administration fees some amendments may result in a change to individual supplier prices or changes in the division of cost per person where transport is concerned which may result in changes to the overall cost of the trip. The following are some examples of where itinerary amendments may result in changes to the itinerary pricing:
By making a reservation you accept and agree to the relevant cancellation and no-show policy of the individual suppliers. Notification of cancellation or reduction must be made in writing. If you have to cancel or reduce numbers for any of the trip usually the more notice that you are able to give, the better chance that the service can be re-sold and the more likely that you will be able to secure a partial or a complete refund. Some suppliers may allow you to transfer your booking to another time period.
We will be able to provide you the total costs associated with the changes or cancellations to your itinerary. If you have to cancel your trip or reduce participant numbers (especially inside of 30 days of travel) you should know that you may forfeit a portion or in a worst case scenario all of your fees. The accommodations, transport companies, or activity vendor may have cancellation fees that we are required to pass on to you. We will strive to refund payments where possible. There are also ways to protect yourself. Consider purchasing Trip Cancellation Insurance for added protection.
All claims for refunds must be submitted in writing within 30 days of end of travel date and the Company reserves the right to determine eligibility for requested refunds. Any refunds that become due will be processed by the same method as the original payments were made and the refund will be issued within 30 days of written notification of same.

No refunds are made for unused portion of any itineraries such as but not limited to no-shows at golf courses and accommodations.

Cancellation protection and interruption protection is one of the most important benefits you should seek. Please review your policy details and know what is and is not covered. We also recommend each customer and trip participant take out travel insurance that covers loss, damage or theft of luggage, personal injury, illness and accidents.
Golf Handicaps: Some golf clubs, particularly the well know links courses, require visitors to bring handicap cards, while this is not yet that common we recommend you travel with a handicap card and we accept no responsibility if you do not and are resultantly denied golf. Most clubs also place handicap restrictions on visitors. If your handicap is greater than 24 (men) or 36 (ladies) please notify us and we can discuss which clubs may have restrictions.
