Our service is ideal

Methods of Payment

Perhaps the easiest is by bank transfer.  When the time comes, bank details can be forwarded.

Soon,we shall have a PayPay account where it will be possible to make payments even if you don’t have an account.

A bank draft in Pounds Sterling; this method obviously has a drawback in requiring more processing time.


Let Classic British Golf Tours organise your next golf holiday!
