Members’ Official Tours to Sri Lanka –2018
The M.C.C. Members’ Official Tour to Sri Lanka will cover the first and second Test Matches in the series in Galle and Kandy and will be organised by Howzat Travel.
A Member is permitted to bring one guest to share a room, otherwise the Tour is for Members and their wives/partners or families only. There are currently fifteen places available for the Tour and the price has been calculated on filling each of these spaces. A full list of the components of the Tour is at the end of the itinerary.
The Club has decided to offer Members the option of booking the Tour without international flights. In recent years, more Members have chosen to book their own flights in order to use frequent flyer schemes. It is hoped that this will assist Members who wish to make their own arrangements; however, transfers to and from the hotels may be at an additional cost when making your own flight arrangements. Howzat Travel would also be able to assist with alternative flights if you would like to make different pre- or post-Tour arrangements.
If you would like to participate in the Tour, a deposit of £1,000 per person is payable to M.C.C. If the Club decides not to proceed with the Tour due to a low number of applications received, you can opt to transfer to Howzat Travel’s equivalent Galle and Kandy Test Tour, or cancel your booking and have your deposit returned to you (subject to flights not having been ticketed). The initial closing date for applications is Friday, 18th May, 2018. If the Tour is full by the time an application is received, the Member will be added to a waiting list.
Please complete the Deposit Form and return it to the Club with your payment of £1,000 per person. Cheques are to be made payable to M.C.C., and spaces for the Tour will be allocated strictly on a first-come-first-served basis. Receipt of deposits will be acknowledged by M.C.C., after which you will be contacted by Howzat Travel to discuss your booking in further detail.
An invoice for the full tour price will be sent by Howzat Travel as soon as the booking has been confirmed. The final balance must be paid in full by Friday, 24th August, 2018.
