I just had a query about bookings for topdeck.
I have a couple of friends wanting to go on a tour in about 6 months. We’re all from Australia, but we have a friend in the UK who we will meet up with and be doing the same tour as us.
My question is, is it possible for the friend in UK to book all of our tours because the Australian dollar is strong at the moment, and after being converted, it is cheaper for her to book it from her end?
We’re looking to save money wherever we can, and if it’s cheaper, we would probably prefer to go through the UK travel agent.
However, one of the travel agents told us this story where his friends did the same thing, but the guy from Australia wasn’t allowed to go on the tour in the end because he didn’t have a UK passport and the tour was booked through the UK.
So all in all, I guess my question really is, will we be allowed on the tour even if it’s booked through the UK and we have Australian passports!
Thanks so much
