Coronavirus – Additional T&Cs
If at any point before your trip, you or any member of your group shows any sign of Covid-19 or has been in contact with anyone that has shown symptoms you will be required to notify us before you attend the trip. In this case we will relax our normal cancellation policy and a refund may be processed or an equivalent value of vouchers may be issued, though we do reserve the right to ask for written confirmation from a doctor before a refund will be processed.
Any non-health related or Covid-19 cancellations or no-shows will be dealt with in accordance with our normal Terms & Condition’s cancellation policy below.
When the booking is created you will be required to input the name and contact number of every passenger booking to facilitate contact tracing if necessary.
