Your tailor-made quotation will list all inclusions and any alterations to the above.
We recognise that every group is different. Some groups request Mass / Eucharist daily whilst others require this service only once during their pilgrimage. We will take great care to ensure we plan your trip to suit your needs.
If you prefer not to be away from your parish for too long and especially do not want to miss your local Sunday service then we would suggest a shorter five-day pilgrimage. You’ll be surprised just how much you are able to experience.
In addition to our inclusive pilgrimages, for those of you who have the experience and desire to explore a destination independently, we can offer a simple package of transport and accommodation only. All we require is your minimum group size, duration and preferred destination, and we will provide a tailor-made quotation to suit your needs. This is a great alternative for those groups with a modest budget. It will allow you to offer a superb pilgrimage with optional excursions only where and when you want them.
To help make your pilgrimage more affordable we offer one free place for every 20 paying passengers. Our free places can be used however you wish – by yourself as group organiser, or passed on to a group member who may not be able to afford the full fare themselves. Call us to discuss free place ratios and the various ways we could help you make a saving.
We pride ourselves on offering the best value for money when booking your pilgrimage. This means you can take advantage of the best flight prices and favourable hotel rates. We offer various travel packages depending on your budget and requirements. Many of our groups book up to a year in advance to guarantee the lowest price. We recommend that you book as far in advance as possible.
