Post-Booking Information

What happens next?


We’re so delighted you have chosen Belle France for your next holiday – we know you’re going to love it!

This guide just lets you know what happens now and in the run up to your holiday so you know what to expect.

What happens now?

So you’ve chosen your itinerary and paid your deposit.

Now leave the hard work to us. We’re busy finalising your hotel reservations, booking your rail or ferry travel if you’ve requested it, and we’re liaising with the hotels about your dietary requirements or other requests you may have.

We just want to ensure we’ve dotted the ‘i’s and crossed the ‘t’s so you can rest assured you’ve got exactly what you’ve asked for.

Great! Then what happens?

We’ll send you the final itinerary along with your route notes and some helpful holiday notes, so you’ve got a chance to read through and let us know if there’s anything you want to amend or alter. This is where the excitement starts!

Getting the logistics sorted!

If we’re a bit quiet, don’t worry, we’re working on the logistics behind the scenes. The team will be sorting out your luggage transfers, booking your bikes (if you need them), arranging your hotel transfers as well as getting you booked on any excursions or extras that you’ve chosen, such as wine tasting.

We’ll let you know if there’s anything we need to consult you on, or if we need to make any changes to timings for example, so you’re fully in the loop at all times.

12 weeks to go…

We’ll contact you to take your final balance, and also to firm up any last minute details.

It’s at this point where we will ask you for details such as your height and inside leg measurement if you are hiring bikes with us.

We’ll also produce route books that are tailored for your holiday, which includes all the hotels you’ll be staying in, and the routes that you’ll be taking each day. There will be a map for each day with your route marked on, as well as accompanying written notes which describe all points of interest, as well as places to eat and drink along the way.

8 weeks to go…

This is the exciting bit! We’ll contact you to send out your travel pack which will have everything in it you need. Your tickets, maps, itinerary and information about anything you need to purchase before you go away.

You’re ready to go!
