TYPICAL COST OF A FLAVOUR OF THE CAMINO TRIP AND HOW THIS IS CALCULATED

FLAVOUR OF THE CAMINO fee for 2017 – and other costs

Our weekly fee is as follows and depends upon how many people are included in each individual booking –

  • Individual booking           €240 per person
  • Two people or more         €220 per person

 

ESTIMATED COST OF YOUR TRIP – it’s up to you.

With the exception of the FLAVOUR OF THE CAMINO fee, the following costs are estimates.  They are on a “per person sharing” basis and are deemed realistic/accurate:

Flavour of the Camino fee          €200 (note 1)

Flights                                                 €205 (note 2)

Accommodation                            €245 (note 2)

Food                                                    €208 (note 2)

Travel – within Spain                   €   30

Baggage transport                         €  35

Vineyard tour                                 €     7 (NAVARRA SECTION only)

Total                                                   € 950

Note 1  –  Booking Process

When you make your initial booking ,  you will  receive an email with additional information, and a “Booking Registration and Preferences Form” for completion and return. This enables you tell us what type of accommodation you prefer and whether you require baggage transfer etc.

You will also be asked for a deposit of €150 of the FLAVOUR OF THE CAMINO FEE per person per week booked, with the remainder payable nearer to the start date of your holiday. (The remainder will be either €90, or €70 per person, depending upon whether there are 1, 2 or more people respectively in your group  – see What FLAVOUR OF THE CAMINO provides”  for more information. NOTE – the indicative FLAVOR OF THE CAMINO fee quoted above relates to the cost per person where a double booking is made).

On receipt by us of your  “Booking Registration and Preferences Form”  and deposit cheque, you will then be sent confirmation of your booking.  Based on your preferences we will immediately finalise the necessary bookings for you in Spain. At this time we will also confirm when you should proceed with booking the flights relevant to the week you have chosen for your FLAVOUR OF THE CAMINO trip,  to ensure availability.

Note – we operate on a “pay as you go” basis – eg whilst we book your accommodation, (usually at a favourable/discounted rate), you pay for it each day direct to the hotel (at the reduced FLAVOUR OF THE CAMINO-negotiated price).  Also, travel in Spain (or France in respect of the PYRENEES section),  is by the excellent public coach/rail service – again we book in advance but you pay when you arrive in Spain/France

Note 2 – above prices are generous estimates :

  • Flights – cost per person of return flights (Dublin – Bilbao/ Bilbao – Dublin  for the NAVARRA and LA RIOJA sections   OR   Dublin – Biarritz/Bilbao – Dublin for the PYRENEES section) as per Aer Lingus/Ryanair websites. (Quotation is based on the Aer Lingus flights to/from Bilbao on 17th/20th May 2017 respectively, and prices were correct as at 24th October 2016 : return flights €175 plus €30 per person if you wish to book a bag in for each flight)
  • Accommodation – calculated on a per person basis for a double room at an average of €35 per night. Early payment of booking deposit enables us secure bookings (and helps us secure discounted prices for you).
  • Food – Your eating preferences are absolutely your choice – you choose where/when/what you eat. We have simply based the estimated figure on normal set menu prices across Northern Spain (3 course meals including wine and bread – €15 per person, and often less than that), with an average total cost of €12 per day for breakfast and lunch. 

 

Note 3 – Reservations for more than one week in the same season

If you wish to book for 2 weeks or more in the same season, the relevant weekly FLAVOUR OF THE CAMINO fee applicable will be reduced by 50% for the second and subsequent weeks
