IMPORTANT POINTS TO NOTE ABOUT YOUR FLIGHTS
Taxes fees and surcharges are NOT guaranteed until tickets are issued, and are subject to change. Increases in government taxes and fuel surcharges before ticketing will be passed on to the customer, as per our booking conditions.

Any changes to your travel plans generally carry an amendment fee, which increases the closer to departure we are. This is a minimum of at least £25 per person and can rise dramatically closer to departure.

The airline fares used for this tour are based on group rates that carry strict restrictions which include no changes and no partial refunds after ticketing.

You are currently not able to use the 24 hour online check in facility when travelling on BA or VS group tickets.

Upgrades to BA’s World Traveller Plus and Club or Virgin Atlantic Premium or Upper Class are available subject to availability – please email running@sportstoursinternational.co.uk for rates.

Your ticket MUST have your name as per your passport (middle names do not appear on a flight ticket and are only required for API). Failure to submit this at time of booking may result in you not being able to board your flight at time of departure and/or additional fees to be able to amend your booking. Please supply us with the correct name at time of booking.

Also, sometimes there may be flight time changes. Unless the change is significant, we will not advise until the tickets are issued.

Flights with different airlines are NOT interchangeable i.e. if you fly out with British Airways, you must fly back with British Airways.

CONNECTING FLIGHTS
Our FULL PACKAGE flights are operated by British Airways from London Heathrow Airports. If required we can quote domestic add-on fares for connections from other UK regional airports. Please email running@sportstoursinternational.co.uk for prices.

As we say above, we are also offering flights with United Airlines, the official airline of the TCS New York City Marathon, from various UK departure points direct to Newark airport. You need to enquire at the time of booking for availability and whether there is any price differential payable at the time of booking for these flights, as the fare class that is booked is always subject to availability and the price can fluctuate. United Airlines operate from Manchester, Birmingham, Belfast, Edinburgh and Glasgow.

Please note, transfers for any full packages are NOT automatically included for Flight and Entry packages.

HOW TO BOOK

CLICK ON THE GREEN BUTTON AT THE TOP OF THE RELEVANT PACKAGE PAGE ON THE WEBSITE.

At time of booking we require a non-refundable deposit of £200 per person, plus the full Race Entry Fee, which is non-returnable once booked. The balance of your travel package must be paid, at the latest, 12 weeks before departure to avoid the cancellation of your trip.

IMPORTANT INFORMATION

PASSPORTSTHIS IS YOUR RESPONSIBILITY.

Please note: we will require a copy of your passport along with any postal application forms.

Please do not leave it to the last minute. The following information is for United Kingdom passport holders only, other nationals including Eire should consult the appropriate embassy.
UK residents are allowed to enter the USA with a ten year passport, with no less than 6 months left before the expiry of the passport, if staying in the US for less than 90 days. However, the rules are constantly updated, so we advise that you check your own individual situation as the visa waiver programme is subject to strict criteria, and for example, if you have a criminal record or have previously been refused entry to the US, you may not qualify for entry under the Visa Waiver programme. Please check your status with the rules.

Passengers are no longer permitted to enter the USA with a non-machine readable passport unless their old style passport has a valid Visa stamp. The newer red passports are machine readable. CHILDREN MUST HAVE THEIR OWN PASSPORT – If in doubt please contact the passport advice line on 0300 222 0000, or Passport Office Website or if applicable the American Embassy on 0207 499 9000 or the US Embassy Website

IMMIGRATION TO THE USA

There are now very strict guidelines on entry to the USA and a new system put in place whereby you must have registered with the Department of Homeland Security at least three days before you travel. More information can be found on the Department’s Official Website
