Canal cruising in france
Canal Cruising in France is a division of France At Your Fingertips - Paris Provence (registered in Australia).
HOW WE WORK
We are a wholesaler and tour-operator. Our job is to provide visitors with the best choice of canal cruises in France. We have visited boats and barges and cruised many canals. We will give you the best advice for your next floating holiday in France.
THE INTERNET, YOU AND US
To the keen internet surfer, countless websites display a wealth of information about Canal Cruising in France but none in Australia offer such a wide selection of superb hotel barges accommodating 2 to 24 persons and top quality self-drive canal boats for all budgets. We add personal, friendly and competent advice to efficient service - using all the conveniences of modern technology.
WHY WE ARE NOT PART OF ATAS
It appears recent bankruptcies of large companies like Thomas Cook or Tempo have triggered fear within the discerning travellers community. The Ansett crash is still in everybody’s mind.
For many years, TCF was the accredited body to look after travel agents solvency. We never joined TCF, which was charging large premiums without offering proper cover to our clients.
We have been in business for nearly 20 years and over that time we have never dragged any customer into trouble. We believe that a company is responsible for the service provided and shouldn’t count on an external body to look after its weakness.
We look after a “niche market” and choose to deal only with a handful of very strong and reliable accredited suppliers in France. We maintain excellent and very close business relationships with them. All deposits received in the name of suppliers are not kept but transferred within days to the supplier. A guarantee for customers that even if our office was to burn down, they wouldn’t lose anything. It is true though, that if we were to close the office and disappear with the cash, you wouldn’t be covered by your travel insurance.
It’s all a matter of trust. If you have any doubt of our commitment to transfer all payments received within days to the supplier in France, then we invite you to look for another agent. France At Your Fingertips – Paris Provence provides outstanding personalised service to all, we hope you will continue to shop with us.
