the-old-course-at-st-andrews3We can offer you: Hotels....guesthouses.... self-catering apartments & houses...

covering all styles and budgets.

Be aware that the closer you are to the course the more expensive it is. You and your group should consider if you are willing to travel each day and decide on an appropriate distance – up to 5 miles, 5 – 10 miles, 10 – 25 miles, more than 25 miles.



If you are travelling with a larger group then the general advise is to start planning early. Some accommodations books up years in advance so planning your trip 2 or 3 years in advance is often a good plan if you are in a group larger than 4 persons. We also offer monthly payment facilities so you can spread the cost of the trip over a longer period of time as well, and gain some savings as well by making payments when the exchange rates are in your favour.
