Insurance

  • Whilst Stravaigin Scotland Tours maintains insurance meeting all statutory requirements, we strongly recommend that passengers hold comprehensive and suitable travel, medical and cancellation insurance to cover for eventualities during travel and trips.

Alterations/Alternatives

  • The Company reserves the right to alter tour itineraries at any time, due to weather conditions, traffic problems, availability of attractions or other such extenuating circumstances outwith our control. In the case of accommodation, we will attempt to obtain a similar standard of accommodation wherever possible.
  • The Company reserves the right to alter the vehicle employed on any tour.

Other Operators/Carriers/Third Party Suppliers

  • The Company will not accept or have any liability for any acts or omissions whether negligent or otherwise of any supplier (including accommodation and subcontracted coach services) or person providing services in connection with any tour unless such a person is employed by or under direct control of the Company.

  • Where attractions supply their own tour guides (i.e. Castles etc) unfortunately we are unable to provide our own guiding services on these sites. We will endeavour to ensure an efficient hand over and make arrangements to meet our clients at a suitably agreed location & time on their exit from the attraction.

Accommodation

  • Accommodation arrangements for multi day tours referred to are provided independently by third party accommodation providers. Such arrangements are subject to the terms and conditions and limitations of liability imposed by these providers, and as such any contracts undertaken are made between the Customer and the third party accommodation provider. All such arrangements are made independently of Stravaigin Scotland Tours, irrespective of any help and assistance which the Company may provide in securing such arrangements.
