Booking Guidance

Please ensure that you have read and accepted our booking conditions before making a booking. We require a non-refundable deposit of 20% to confirm booking, with the balance payable 90 days before arrival. If you are booking less than 90 days before arrival date the full amount is due on booking.

Please do not finalise your travel arrangements before we have confirmed your booking. Please contact us to confirm availability and we will be happy to hold your booking for 10 days pending receipt of your completed booking form and deposit payment.

We accept payment via the following methods:

By UK cheque or international (pounds sterling) banker's draft: Please make cheques payable to 'Archaeology Tours Scotland'.

By UK BACS transfer.

By credit or debit card via PayPal: Please request a PayPal invoice. We apply a credit card surcharge to cover the PayPal transaction fees:

UK credit card surcharge: 4%

Europe, Canada and USA credit card surcharge: 4.5%

Rest of the world credit card surcharge: 5.5%


If we have to cancel your tour for any reason you will receive a full refund.

If you cancel your tour the following cancellation penalties apply and we strongly recommend you take out suitable travel insurance to cover you in the event you have to cancel your tour:

(1) Up to 90 days before the tour: loss of 50% of tour cost
(2) Less than 90 days notice: loss of 100%

Please Note: Credit card payments will be refunded less any fees we were charged by PayPal to receive your payment. PayPal may also charge you a fee for receiving our refund payment. Refunds will be sent in £ sterling and we are not liable for any differences caused by currency fluctuations. In some circumstances PayPal does not charge us for making refunds, in which case we will not charge you a fee and you will get the full amount back.
