Can the customer service team help me with a query about a break?
We are happy to assist you with an enquiry regarding any break or trip on our website.
We welcome enquiries for types of breaks not currently on offer on Activitybreaks.com - chances are some of our many partners can offer them. Tell us what you need and we will do our best to arrange it for you. Just get in touch!

What do I need to present on arrival at the holiday I have booked?
In most cases, the booking confirmation you receive by e-mail from ActivityBreaks.com will suffice as your confirmation (i.e. your ticket will be redeemable for the activity or package upon arrival). Please make sure you take this booking confirmation with you on your travels.
There are some cases where you will also be emailed a separate confirmation voucher from our travel partner, for example, concert bookings, rugby packages and Andrea Bocelli packages. For these events, your event tickets will be awaiting your arrival at the hotel so you can collect your event tickets when you check into the hotel.

If you are in any way unsure about the arrangements for your particular booking, then contact us before your departure.

Are flights included in my booking?
No - Flights are not included in any packages sold on the ActivityBreaks.com website.

Complaints

What if I have been unhappy with my trip?
Activity Breaks hopes that all customers enjoy their holiday.
If you are in any way dissatisfied with any aspect of your arrangements, you must notify the relevant supplier/travel partner as soon as possible. The reason that we and/or the supplier require you to do this is to give us and/or the supplier an opportunity to resolve any problems before they spoil your holiday.
If you are ill whilst on holiday, you must consult a local doctor and also consult your GP on return to the UK. Should you then wish to make a claim against us or the supplier as a result of that illness, you must provide us or the supplier with details of both the local doctor whom you saw and your own GP, together with written authority for us to obtain a medical report from both those doctors.

If you think that you are entitled to compensation from us in relation to a Package, please write to us at:
ActivityBreaks Customer Service,
57a Prospect Road
Bangor
Co. Down
BT20 5DF

Please ensure that you outline the nature of the complaint within 90 days of your return from holiday. Failure to follow this procedure may reduce or extinguish any rights you may have to make a claim against either us or any relevant supplier.

If you are already on holiday with ActivityBreaks.com and wish to lodge a complaint please call +44 2891 404080, our normal office opening hours are 9 am - 5 pm Monday to Friday.
