The cost will be £520 for a group of 30; this will reduce to £495 for a party of 35 and to £477 for 40.  The single room supplement will be £150.00.


The cost includes the services of our expert guide, Alan Reed, together with executive coach travel from Warwick, crossings with  P&O Ferries (Dover-Calais), two nights B&B hotel accommodation in central Arras and two nights in central Ypres, lunch on three days, all museum admissions and tips for the driver and guide. Evening meals are not included.


Travel insurance this can be arranged at a cost of £10. Pre-existing medical conditions must be declared. It is regretted that those over 80 cannot be covered.


Due to the pressure on accommodation, especially in Ypes, we need to commit to the hotels very quickly – and ideally by the end of October.  Anyone wishing to join the trip should complete the booking form attached and return it to me, together with a deposit of £50.  Cheques to be made payable to Warwick District U3A.  The balance will be due two months before departure.  Only U3A members (of any branch) may join the trip.
