Group Bookings Easter FPlaEE Rces Weekenders e Great Times… Great Value! availabl At Alfa, we have a dedicated Groups Team which specialises in planning and providing great value group holidays. Every year hundreds 4 DAYS of groups entrust their holiday to us because we understand that organising a group getaway can be time consuming unless you can count on the support of your very own experienced and knowledgeable Group Booking Advisor. fr £ 154 Per Pers o n “Off the Peg” Group Holidays Most group organisers opt to choose from one of the great value breaks advertised in our holiday brochures. With traditional seaside and loch side locations throughout the UK and a range of appealing destinations in Western Europe, your group really will be spoilt for choice. All of the holidays in this brochure are available for booking by groups and your group will always get the best value by booking one of our advertised tours because we bulk-buy the space and pass the savings on to you. We can tailor most itineraries to your requirements, for example by adding extra excursions or omitting entrance fees. Our generous discounts provide the 21st, 31st, 41st and 51st passenger travelling absolutely free of charge on all advertised holidays. We also offer special joining arrangements for groups and, providing there is a minimum of 40 persons in the party, groups are automatically given sole use of the coach which means that your party will travel direct to your chosen destination without having to travel via an interchange point. For most organisers this is one of the key What Alfa Includes benefits booking a group departure. If your group is not large enough to take a whole coach, we can easily  3 nights’ dinner, room and breakfast reserve part of a coach for your party and can usually make arrangements with local travel agencies to “top up”  Rooms with private facilities your group with individual bookings from your local area to avoid the need to travel via an interchange.

We are always delighted to discuss the possibilities with those of you looking for something a little bit different. We have particular expertise in organising special interest tours including Gardens & Stately Homes, Food & Wine, General History, Heritage Railways and other British Heritage Breaks. We can also offer packages to include dancing and various sports - with bowling being a particular favourite since most of our own hotels are in close proximity to an established bowling green. These Boots Were Made for Walking… Many of the hotels we use are ideally placed as a base for walking holidays. Whether your party would like to walk the coastal paths of Devon and Cornwall, enjoy the delights of the Lake District, the Dales or North York Moors or undertake something a little more strenuous in Snowdonia, the Cairngorms or West of Scotland, our Groups Department will be delighted to assist. Here are just a few hotel suggestions for you to consider: Snowdonia from Llandudno or Criccieth, Glamorgan from Porthcawl, Dales and North York Moors from Scarborough, Exmoor and Devon Coastal Path from Ilfracombe, Cornish Special Alfa Offers Coastal Path: North from Newquay, South West from St Ives or South from Falmouth, South Downs Way from Bognor Regis, Lake District from Coniston, Argyll from Dunoon and Nevis Range from Early Booking Single Saver No single supplement at our Leisureplex Fort William.

The bonus is that because it is not quite Christmas, our labour and entertainment costs are much lower and we are able to pass this on in the form of significantly lower prices. Beware of imitations - we have not reduced the content of our Christmas and New Year packages in any way. We provide the same high quality menus and entertainment package as described for the Christmas and New Year breaks opposite. The only difference is that we have a full day shopping excursion on “Christmas Eve” (Tuesday) instead of the half day provided on the real Christmas package.
