TERMS & CONDITIONS OF BOOKING
Please note that except where stated otherwise, each Day Out gives between four and five hours at the destination, but less if the Day Out covers more than one destination. Within each Day Out description a Departure Code is given which corresponds with the departure times from various local pick up points shown in the timing chart. Please bear in mind that although the coach may leave its first pick up point on time the pick ups later down the route may be affected by traffic conditions. Please bear in mind that traffic congestion, ferry or tunnel delays may mean a later return. We regret that we cannot be held responsible for delays in arrival or return times caused by traffic congestion.
Please allow plenty of time for travel to the pick up point and ensure that you are there at least 10 minutes before the published departure time. We are unable to offer a refund should you miss the coach. We regret that additional stops cannot be made.
Please ensure you are aware of any times and instructions given on the day by the driver.
Please make sure that you are aware of the departure time & the location for your collection point for the return journey home.
If you are in doubt please talk to your driver or courier and consider taking the coach mobile phone number. We allow up to 15 minutes after departure time for homeward journey, for delays however after this the coach will depart.
We cannot accept liability for passengers failing to arrive at the coach on time and therefore being unable to board the departed coach.
Please do not inconvenience others by being late back.
