Ministry rates are 20% off the standard open rates. (Your invoice will show the line items at the open rates and then take the ministry discount off the total).

Note - your invoice may go about calculating the cost in a different way (by dealing with the discounts in a different order), but it should end up at the same bottom line.

Specialist booking supplement

Some bookings draw on additional Sheldon resources in order to meet the needs of guests. These may include

  • Several telephone conversations are needed to set up the booking
  • The booking is at short notice so we need to shop or arrange staffing for a quick changeover
  • The guest is in a bad way and we need to provide an additional level of background support
  • Circumstances are changing so the length of the booking needs to be flexible

For these bookings we invite a flat rate £100 in addition to the other component parts of the booking.
