Confirmation of Payment
Your booking invoice sent to you once payment has been processed at which time all terms and conditions come into immediate effect. If you have requested a copy by email, you should receive this within 24 hours. If you have booked by telephone and have requested your booking confirmation be sent by post, you should receive this within five working days. It is the customer’s responsibility to ensure they have received their booking confirmation and reviewed that all the information provided is correct (passenger names, room allocation, pick up point etc).
If you have not received your booking confirmation within the time deadlines above, please contact our office so we can arrange for a second copy to be sent to you.
Holiday Prices and availability are correct at time of going to press although we reserve the right to change any prices online or in our brochure at any time without prior notification. If the price of your holiday is to increase or decrease after you have booked, your holiday cost will be unaffected; Blackpool Promotions will always seek not to increase the price of your holiday after your invoice has been issued. No refunds will be given if the holiday is discounted later.
Child Prices Most of our hotels will charge child prices based on children aged 2 - 14 years of age when sharing with 2 full paying adults. Therefore, we will charge two adult prices if there is only 1 adult and 1 child sharing a bedroom, the exception to this would be in St Chads and the Queens Hotel where you would be charged for 1 adult and 1 child.
Blackpool Promotions accept your booking in good faith that you have read and understood the booking conditions during the booking process. As per the above information regarding child prices, if you are to select the incorrect number of adult and child prices (with child prices being based on sharing with two adults), your booking will be updated with the correct price information when it is processed by our staff who will endeavour to contact you to make you aware of the issue.
It is the passengers' responsibility to ensure they are at their coach departure points 20 minutes prior to stated departure time. If you miss your departure it is the passengers' responsibility to make their own alternative travel arrangements to their hotel in Blackpool. Due to operational changes, it may be necessary to change your departure time at late notice to an earlier or later time. In the unlikely event this is necessary Blackpool Promotions will notify you. Due to the nature of our coach operations, seats on-board the coaches are not allocated prior to departure and customers choose their seats when boarding the coach. For guests with severe walking difficulties we can request seats near the front of the coach although seats cannot be guaranteed, if we are to receive a high number of requests for seats near the front of the coach, these will be allocated at the driver’s discretion.
Regretfully we do not have the facilities on the coaches or at the hotels to assist passengers who have limited mobility. All luggage carried on board our coaches is done so at your own risk. Blackpool Promotions accept no responsibility for any luggage that is damaged or goes missing during transit to and from Blackpool. Blackpool Promotions loss or damage to luggage.
Special Requirements or Requests

Most repairs to the lifts can be done within 24 hours, however should new mechanical parts be required, this can take longer. Blackpool Promotions accept no liability for inconvenience or loss of enjoyment whilst the lift is out of order.
We do accept requests for guests with walking difficulties, such as low floor bedrooms and will always endeavor to meet all requests, however, on occasions this may not always be possible. Please note, although customers can request a room type for their stay we cannot guarantee the room number in any of our hotels at the time of booking.
