British-Bulgarian Society Tours

We have been privileged to run the special interest Tours of the society since 1996. The British-Bulgarian Society (B-BS), a charitable British organisation, has initiated tours to Bulgaria for over 40 years as one of its means to promote friendship, understanding and cultural relations between the peoples of Britain and Bulgaria. The society uses income from these tours to support a variety of educational and conservation projects in both countries. We fully share these goals and by contributing to the joint product, we aim to give you an added satisfaction.

Every year the focus of the tours is on the less known features of Bulgaria, its flora and fauna, bird life, butterflies, festivals, music, embroidery, village life, wine tours, archaeology, monasteries and pilgrimages.

Bulgaria is undergoing an amazing transformation and nobody is better placed than us together to follow developments. Lately, we increasingly cross borders into the neighbouring countries of Greece, Macedonia, Romania and Serbia on various integrated tour themes, such as the rich natural history and cultural heritage of this fascinating South-eastern cradle of civilization of Europe and the world.

Your Financial Protection. When you buy an ATOL protected flight or flight inclusive package from us you will receive an ATOL Certificate. This lists what is financially protected, where you can get information on what this means for you and who to contact if things go wrong.

We, or the suppliers identified on your ATOL Certificate, will provide you with the services listed on the ATOL Certificate (or a suitable alternative). In some cases, where neither we nor the supplier are able to do so for reasons of insolvency, an alternative ATOL holder may provide you with the services you have bought or a suitable alternative (at no extra cost to you). You agree to accept that in those circumstances the alternative ATOL holder will perform those obligations and you agree to pay any money outstanding to be paid by you under your contract to that alternative ATOL holder. However, you also agree that in some cases it will not be possible to appoint an alternative ATOL holder, in which case you will be entitled to make a claim under the ATOL scheme (or your credit card issuer where applicable).

If we, or the suppliers identified on your ATOL certificate, are unable to provide the services listed (or a suitable alternative, through an alternative ATOL holder or otherwise) for reasons of insolvency, the Trustees of the Air Travel Trust may make a payment to (or confer a benefit on) you under the ATOL scheme.

You also agree that any such claims may be re-assigned to another body, if that other body has paid sums you have claimed under the ATOL scheme.
