If   it   helps   at   all,   here’s   some   guidance.   And   lastly   don’t   forget   that   we   are   not some   faceless   internet   company   but   real   people   sat   at   a   desk   here   in   Dorset who you can phone and/or email if you would prefer!
How many people? Please    mention    the    age    of    any    children    and    any    other factors   we   may   need   to   know   such   as   disabilities   etc.   Also bear   in   mind   the   per-person   cost   is   less   the   more   there   are in a group. When to travel? Just   give   us   a   rough   idea.   Please   bear   in   mind   that   the   cost is   pretty   much   the   same   throughout   the   year   and   regardless of   weekdays.   You   may   wish   to   avoid   either   side   of   these   key dates   when   it   can   be   quite   busy:      25   April,   1   July   (Somme), 11   November   (Ypres),      Also   check   online   for   French   and Belgium public holidays etc. How many nights? For   either    the   Somme   or    Ypres   try   and   earmark   at   least   3 nights   as   this   will   give   you   2   ‘clear’   days.   4   nights   is   about right   for   either   or   both   the   Somme   and   Ypres.   5   nights   even better.   At   a   push   3   nights   for   both   Somme   and   night   Ypres   is possible   but   a   bit   of   a   rush.   Don’t   forget   this   is   your   tour and    we    can    structure    everything    to    the    time    you    have available! (See also ‘planning’ link below left) How many rooms? Most   of   the   hotels   we   work   with   have   double   rooms   (i.e. one   bed   for   two   persons)   or   twin   rooms   (two   single   or   two double    beds).    Somme    of    our    Somme    hotels    have    triple rooms   usually   comprising   a   double   and   a   single   bed.   Our Ypres   hotels   have   triple   rooms   comprising   a   double   and   a roll-out bed which is more suited for younger guests. We   need   to   know   how   many   rooms   of   each   type   you’ll   need please   (as   triple   rooms   usually   harder   to   come   by   it’s   helpful to back it both ways). Which battlefields? At   present   our   Self-Drive   guides   cover   the   Somme   1916   and Ypres   (‘Flanders’)   battlefields.      We   also   have   a   guide   to   the Villers   Bretoneux   battlefield   of   1918.   Please   have   a   look   at our   ‘planning   a   Self-Drive   Tour’   under   ‘Helpful   Downloads’   to the   left   of   this   page.   We   may   be   able   to   help   in   other   ways for   battlefields   not   included   in   our   guide   such   as   having   a personal   guide   (see   below)   and/or   supplying   trench   maps etc to help you explore battlefields not included. Channel crossing? This   option   is   only   of   interest   to   those   travelling   from   the UK .      Just   enter   ‘No’   if   you   will   already   be   in   France   or Belgium.   We   are   pleased   to   offer   Eurotunnel’s   super-quick Channel   crossing   from   Folkestone   to   Calais.         This   is   the   only route   we   offer   at   present   so   please   feel   free   to   make   your own arrangements for services from Portsmouth, Hull etc. Personal guide? Please   have   a   look   at   the   ‘A   Personal   Guide’   option   from   the main   menu.      A   personal   guide   can   work   out   quite   expensive, but   well   worth   the   expense   (you   need   to   book   early).      We only   work   with   the   best   guides   who   will   pick   you   up   at   your hotel   using   their   transport   for   a   whole   day’s   exploration   (half or   split   days   not   possible).      This   option   is   invaluable   if   you want   to   follow   the   footsteps   of   a   distant   relative   or   explore   a battlefield   not   included   in   our   Self-Drive   guides.   Bear   in mind   you’ll   need   to   start   and   finish   from   the   same   hotel   (we show   this   cost   as   an   option   so   you   don’t   need   to   decide now).
