Booking conditions and procedures

If you have any queries about the hotel or the tournament please contact the organiser of the event. A contact link is provided at the top of the event's page.

Visually-impaired UK residents under the age of 25 receive free entry and free accommodation when playing in BCA events. In appropriate circumstances, free accommodation is also available to a parent or guardian accompanying a junior.

Visually impaired UK residents in their first year of membership receive their first BCA weekend event free or a £100 reduction in the cost of a week-long event. They may also be accompanied by a guide or companion who will receive the same concession. For a first event we ask for payment in advance which will be reimbursed at the event.

Payments can be made by card on-line, by direct bank transfer (BACS), or by cheque. See the shop pages for more details.

We are unable to guarantee bookings made after the closing date. You must contact the organiser to confirm that we can accept a late booking before making a payment. Late bookings are accepted at the discretion of the organiser and may be subject to a £10 fee.

Bookings are confirmed when full payment has been received. Payments can only be refunded within the time limit set in the terms and conditions set by the hotels. You are advised to take out holiday insurance to cover yourself.

When making your booking please give us the following information:

When you enter one of our tournaments we will send your forename, surname, club, results and possibly your gender to the English Chess Federation so that games can be graded. We will also send the age of juniors so that they can receive the age related grading bonus.

The BCA reserves the right to refuse or cancel any entry or to exclude any person from any event it runs.
