The itinerary is a guide to which we will attempt to adhere, but it may be necessary to alter this at short notice as a result of circumstances or events outside our control such as adverse weather or road conditions or any of those amounting to force majeure, or due to the operating conditions imposed by owners and operators of accommodation, facilities and transport. Sometimes we just vote among customers of the Trip and change the itinerary and sometimes it might be not to everyone’s satisfaction.Your itinerary will, however, be the same in content as far as is reasonably possible, unless circumstances beyond our control make this impossible. Should weather conditions involve you in extra costs such as accommodation, transportation and meals, these will be borne by mutual agreement between us.

CHANGES MADE BY US BEFORE YOU TRAVEL
Changes Due to Circumstances Beyond Our Control: Except where we say differently elsewhere in these booking conditions, we cannot pay any compensation, reimburse expenses, or cover losses for any amount or otherwise accept responsibility if, as a result of circumstances beyond our control, we have to change your Trip after booking, or we, or our suppliers, cannot supply your Trip, as we, or they, had agreed. When we refer to circumstances beyond our control we mean any event that we, or the supplier in question, could not foresee or avoid, even after taking all reasonable care. Such circumstances will usually include, but are not limited to, war, threat of war, airport closures, airspace closures (as well as other air traffic management decisions which may give rise to long or overnight delays or cancellations of one or more flights), the inability of airline(s) to operate flights as a result of the United Kingdom’s decision to leave the European Union (including the loss or restriction of air traffic or transit rights or the right of airline(s) to enter any airspace), epidemic, significant risks to human health such as the outbreak of a serious disease at the travel destination, natural or nuclear disaster, serious security problems such as terrorist activity, civil unrest or events arising out of political instability, industrial dispute or strikes, bad weather (actual or threatened), Foreign Office advising against travel to a particular destination and significant building work taking place outside of your accommodation (such as resort development).
CHANGES MADE BY US AFTER YOU TRAVEL
If, after you go on holiday, we find we can’t provide a significant part of your Trip arrangements, you’ll be offered a suitable alternative if possible and where we consider it appropriate, reasonable compensation, unless the reason for the change is due to circumstances beyond our control.
CANCELLATION BY US
On rare occasions, we may need to cancel your Trip and have the right to do so – for example, if there is insufficient demand for your particular Trip. If we have to cancel your Trip we’ll tell you as soon as reasonably possible. If we can do so, we’ll offer you an alternative Trip of equivalent or closely similar standard and price at no extra cost to you, or a less expensive Trip, in which case we’ll refund the difference in price. If you don’t wish to take the alternative we offer you, you can receive a full refund of the money you paid to us. We can also cancel your booking if you fail to make payment on time.
You agree not to hold us responsible or for any inconveniences or financial losses from any trip cancelled by us when you were informed of group size minimum at the time of booking. We ask that you do not book any travel arrangements until we have confirmed that your trip has reached the group size minimum to run.
We want all our customers to have an enjoyable, carefree holiday but you must remember that you are responsible for your actions and the effect they may have on others. If we, or another person in authority, believe:
- your actions could upset or disturb other customers, our suppliers or our own staff, or put them in any risk or danger, or could cause damage to property; or
- you are unfit to travel;
we may end your Trip and terminate your contract. You and your travelling party will be prevented from using your booked accommodation, transport, and any other travel arrangements forming part of your booking and we will not be liable for any refund, compensation or any other costs you have to pay.
Property Damage: If you or any member of your party causes any damage or breaks anything at your accommodation, you must report it promptly to a member of our staff or to the staff at the accommodation. We and/or the accommodation owner will hold you and the members of your travelling party jointly and individually liable for paying for any damage you cause to the accommodation, furniture, fixtures, fittings or any other items within or around the accommodation. If you fail to pay, you will also be liable for any legal costs incurred in pursuing a claim against you.
ACCEPTANCE OF RISK
Some of the activities you might choose to take part in during your Trip may involve a degree of personal risk. The natural environment can, at times, be hazardous and many activities, such as watersports orclimbing are activities with a risk of personal injury or death. If you decide to take part in such activities, you accept these risks and you are responsible for your own actions. Although we or our suppliers will provide instructions and tuition to you as part of the arrangements you book, any safety information/notices must be observed which will minimise these risks. Your booking is accepted by us on the basis that you understand and accept the risks involved in such activities. If at any time you or a member of your party feels uncomfortable or unsure about taking part in an activity during your Trip, an instructor should be advised immediately. You’re under no obligation to take part in or complete activities which form part of your booking if you don’t feel you want to for any reason. You must ensure you have suitable travel insurance for the activities you plan to take part in.
IF YOU HAVE A COMPLAINT
We want all our customers to have an enjoyable time.In the unlikely event that you have any reason to complain or experience any problems with your trip whilst away, you must immediately inform your trip guide and the supplier of the service(s) in question. If any complaint or problem is not resolved to your satisfaction by the trip guide or supplier, you must contact us in the UK using the contact details we have provided you with during your trip, giving us full details and a contact number. Until we know about a complaint or problem, we cannot begin to resolve it. Most problems can be dealt with quickly. If you remain dissatisfied, however, you must write to us within 14 days of the end of your trip giving your booking reference and full details of your complaint. For all complaints and claims which do not involve death, personal injury or illness, we regret we cannot accept liability if you fail to notify the complaint or claim entirely in accordance with this clause. In the unlikely event you have a complaint which we cannot amicably resolve, you may, as an alternative to bringing a claim in the courts, use the AITO independent resolution scheme. This scheme enables a dispute to be resolved on documents alone with limited liability for costs. Full details are available on request.
The contract for your trip is also between you and the Suppliers.Many Suppliers/Principals will have their complaint procedure within their booking conditions.
Very rarely, we may be forced by “force majeure” to change or terminate your trip after departure but before the scheduled end of your time away. If this situation does occur, we regret we will be unable to make any refunds (unless we obtain any refunds from our suppliers), pay you any compensation or meet any costs or expenses you incur as a result.
In these booking conditions, “force majeure” means any event which we or the supplier of the service(s) in question could not, even with all due care, foresee or avoid. Such events may include, whether actual or threatened, war, riot, civil strife, terrorist activity, industrial dispute, natural or nuclear disaster, adverse weather conditions, fire and all similar events outside our control. Except where otherwise expressly stated in these booking conditions, we regret we cannot accept liability or pay any compensation where the performance or prompt performance of our obligations under our contract with you is prevented or affected by or you otherwise suffer any damage, loss or expense of any nature as a result of “force majeure”.
OUR LIABILITY TO YOU FOR YOUR HOLIDAY
We have a legal duty to use reasonable skill and care in providing the services and facilities that form any part of your Trip arrangements, or in arranging for third party suppliers to provide those services and facilities. In addition, we’re also liable to you under the Package Travel, Package Holidays and Package Tours Regulations 1992 for any failure by us or any of the suppliers we use to perform a service or provide a facility which forms part of our contract with you for a Holiday. If we comply with any applicable regulatory or legal requirements that will mean we and our suppliers have properly performed our obligations to you under our contract with you. Taking reasonable skill and care doesn’t necessarily mean we have to comply with each and every local law and regulation particularly where these impose absolute obligations
