Fee basis; Terms and Conditions.
Guiding (coach commentary, site visits, walking tours)
My rates and terms for guiding depend on the context, but generally are benchmarked against the ranges and supplementary guidance published by the British Guild of Tourist Guides on their website. I am also pleased to negotiate proportionate rates for extended half-day tours, i.e between 4 and 9 hours.
Detailed Terms and Conditions will be advised and discussed before agreeing an engagement.
Travel: I will usually seek reimbursement for my travel to and from the start and finish of the assignment. In normal hours my claim for total mileage or public transport costs would not exceed:
£20 for travel to Dorset or Poole
£25 for travel to Hampshire, Southampton, Portsmouth, Bournemouth, Wiltshire, Oxfordshire, or Berkshire;
£50 for travel to Greater London, Surrey or West Sussex
