Cancellation by the Customer
We regret that our cancellation policy does not permit the cancelation of ticket(s). Your statutory rights are not affected.
Cancellation by Us
Where we cancel, for whatever reason, and an alternative cannot be offered or taken, a refund in full (if applicable) shall be made within ten (10) working days of such a cancellation being confirmed.
Compensation will not be payable and no liability will be taken where we are forced to cancel as a result of unusual or unforeseeable circumstances beyond our control, the consequences of which we could not have avoided even with all due care. No compensation will be payable if we cancel as a result of your failure to comply with these terms. No additional compensation, consequential losses, additional travelling costs or other such claim shall be accepted in such an unfortunate event.
Wherever possible, a booking amendment shall be accommodated without charge or penalty if requested fourteen (14) days or more prior to the event date. An administration charge of 10% of the net booking value shall be payable for all amendments made less than fourteen (14) days prior to the event date if such an amendment is possible.
Where an amendment cannot be made and the original booking cannot be fulfilled, then the Cancellation Policy detailed above shall be applicable.
Prices quoted shall be current at the time of booking, acceptance and acknowledgment. The price
agreed shall not be subject to any change unless forced due to circumstances beyond our control. Such circumstances shall include civil riot, region or National emergency, war, route closure, severe weather conditions, etc. Where such a price amendment is necessary, you will be notified in writing no less than twenty-eight (28) days prior to your event date. Should a price amendment be unacceptable, the booking may be cancelled in accordance with our Cancellation Policy above but without penalty or administration charge if confirmed as cancelled fourteen (14) days or more prior to the event date.

Your ticket price shall exclude personal insurance, snacks, lunch, beverages, optional activities, gratuities and any other items not specifically mentioned as being included.
As a general rule, bookings will be accepted at face value at the time of booking. However, at our discretion, proof of any concession entitlement claimed may be requested at any time during fulfilment of the booking. Such proof shall include any legal document that contains a recognisable photograph and date of birth. Failure to produce such evidence upon request may result in the concession being withdrawn and payment being requested amounting to the difference between what has already been paid and the full published price.
Attractions, Highlights & 3rd Parties

As in any product and service of this type, you are entirely responsible at all times for your own safety and for that of others.

If in doubt, please ask.
