Telephone us on 020 8948 2106 and our staff and directors who regularly visit our sailing centre will advise you on availability and any other aspects of the holiday. Our office hours are 9.30am to 5pm, Monday - Friday. We will normally hold your telephone reservation for 24 hours pending the arrival of your deposit of £325 (plus flight cost where applicable) per person. If you cancel the booking you forfeit the deposit. If you book within 10 weeks of departure you must send the whole holiday cost to us at the time of booking.

Confirmation

Once your deposit (or full payment if booking within 10 weeks before departure) is received by us, we will email you your Booking Confirmation and Account along with holiday notes and, if we have arranged your flight, your ATOL Certificate.

Payment

We will email you your final account 12 weeks before departure. The full cost of the holiday is due 10 weeks before departure. Payment may be made by bank transfer, debit or credit card, or cheque.

Airline Confirmation

If we have arranged your flight your travel documents will be emailed to you not less than 10 days before departure.

Alteration

If you need to alter your arrangements after we have sent the confirmation of your booking, there will be an alteration charge of £35 per person for each alteration, and any further cost we incur in making this alteration.  These costs could increase the closer to the departure date that changes are made.

Coronavirus - Book with Confidence Guarantee

Our Book with Confidence Guarantee applies to all bookings for 2022.

  • Refund Guarantee:  If Minorca Sailing cannot operate your holiday due to Covid-19 restrictions, or the Foreign & Commonwealth Office advises against travel, you can either choose to amend your holiday to an alternative date in 2022 or 2023, or receive a full cash refund within 14 days.
  • Covid-19 Protection:  If you or another member of your party is unable to travel due to contracting Covid-19 or having to self-isolate prior to departure, you can amend your booking to an alternative date in 2022 or 2023.  There will be no charge by Minorca Sailing for the booking amendment, and the price of your holiday will be adjusted accordingly in relation to the new departure date.  Airline fees may apply.

Passports & Visas for UK Citizens

Passports Validity

Your passport must meet 2 requirements.  It must be:

  • less than 10 years old on the day you enter Spain (check the 'date of issue')
  • valid for at least 3 months after the day you plan to leave Spain (check the 'expiry date')

Check both the issue date and the expiry date in your passport.  If you renewed your passport early, extra months may have been added to its expiry date.  This could affect the requirement for your passport to be less than 10 years old.

For security reasons airlines are required to provide passenger passport details to the government Border Control and Security authorities before they travel. This is known as Advance Passenger Information (API). Failure to provide this information may result in delays at both UK departure airports and arrival airports and could result in denied boarding or entry. This information must be provided for all passengers travelling, including children and infants.

The Spanish Authorities also require full passport details for anyone staying in a hotel or tourist self-catering accommodation.

We will therefore require your passport details no later than 2 weeks before departure.

Visas

You will be able to travel to Spain for up to 90 days in any 180-day period without a visa as a tourist.
