    Hi Troy,

    We did hear about the accommodation change – did your agent tell you why? Ours didn’t know.

    Also do you know if that means when we get back to Christchurch we’ll be staying there again? We’re still waiting on the updated vouchers etc.

    No she didnt tell me why. i got my voucher for the 1st night only so im not sure bout when we get back there during the trip.

    I got the info about the change of accomodation- does that mean we meet the tour at the new hotel? or do we need to get to Bealeys?

  • 22 Nov 2010 Troy said


    as far as i understand and what my travel agent has told and got me booked in for is

    i am staying at the Holiday inn on avon according to my new vouchers and then the tour leaves from there the next morning as far as i know but i will be confirming this the night before when i book in with the reception

    it depends on whether you booked the tour on line or through an agent as to how fast you get your info but the best bet is if you are still booked in to the bealeys is to get there the night before and then just ask at the reception desk what is happening and where and what time you should be, that is the best i can do for you im sorry.

    i was told by my agent today that the reason for the change is possibly that they could not accommodate for us all and as far as when we get back to christchurch im only guessing but it will be bealeys because we have not got new vouchers for that at this stage and plus the way i look at it we will be with the group so it wont matter anyway cos they will tell us

    hope this helps but this is what im going off

    cheers Troy
