3. Changes to your booking by Activity Booking Office
Activity Booking Office retains the right to make minor changes to the itinerary without notice and wherever possible will notify the client prior to date of arrival. A minor change will be deemed to be any change, whether within or outside Activity Booking Office's control, which could not reasonably be expected to have a significant effect on the confirmed itinerary. In the event of minor changes no compensation is payable or do such changes entitle the client to cancel or request alternatives
In the event that there are significant changes to/or cancellation of the itinerary prior to the commencement date, Activity Booking Office will as soon as is reasonably practical notify the client. In these circumstances the client may accept the change and a refund of the difference in price between the cost of the itinerary purchased and that of the substitute itinerary, Or in the case where the changed itinerary is inferior to the one booked, the client may cancel and be entitled to receive a full refund (which will be in full and final settlement of all claims including loss of enjoyment) Activity Booking Office where possible will offer an alternative itinerary. Significant changes to the itinerary will include the following: a change of accommodation to that of a lower standard for the whole or a major part of the itinerary. The cancellation of an activity or service forming part of the itinerary without replacement by a similar standard activity or service, a change to the price contained in the booking confirmation.
In the event of changes to the itinerary after it has commenced, Activity Booking Office will provide the client with an alternative of the same or higher standard in the same or a similar area. The client will have no right to cancel the itinerary if Activity Booking Office have offered the client a suitable alternative.
In the event of loss or damage suffered by the party or changes to or cancellation of the whole or part of the itinerary due to reasons of unusual or unforeseeable circumstances beyond Activity Booking Office or the providers' control compensation will not be payable by way of example because of safety risks, adverse weather conditions, war, riots, civil strife or terrorist activity, industrial disputes, natural or nuclear disasters, fire, flood, shortage of water, epidemics, technical problems with transport or equipment, airport closures, and similar events beyond our control.
No compensation is payable if cancelled in whole or part due to an insufficient number of people required to make available the activity or service forming part of the itinerary.
Cancellation or changes may be made when safety conditions are in Activity Booking Office or its providers' discretion, compromised. If cancellations occur in such circumstances Activity Booking Office or it's providers will make every effort to reschedule in line with client requirements.
4. Changes made by the client
If the client wishes to make any alteration to the itinerary or wishes to cancel the itinerary, the client must notify Activity Booking Office in writing as soon as is reasonably practical.
The cancellation charges are set below apply if the itinerary is cancelled by the client. Cancellation will only be effective from the date that written notification of cancellation is received by Activity Booking Office.
If the client wants to change the itinerary or the numbers or members of the party after the invoice has been issued then there is an administration fee of £15.00 payable together with any charges or costs imposed by the providers. In the event of certain major changes to the itinerary or the numbers of the party or the dates of the planned itinerary, this request may be treated as a cancellation of the initial booking and the booking of a new itinerary. In such cases cancellation charges may be incurred. Activity Booking Office will advise the client upon receiving request to make amendments if this is the case.
Cancellation charges payable by the client, number of days prior to commencement of the holiday - more than 30 days deposit only; 15 to 30 days: 50% of total; 7 to 14 days 75% of total amount; less than 7 days 100% of total amount.
We strongly recommend that clients insure against cancellation.
As with any holiday, full travel insurance is a requirement for all guests booking a holiday with Activity Booking Office. Please make sure that your insurance policy covers you for any activities you may be participating in. Failure to take out travel insurance breaks the contract between Activity Booking Office and the client.
To the best of our knowledge and belief our suppliers observe the highest standards of safety for the activities and all have appropriate levels of Public Liability Insurance. However, we have not undertaken an official examination of the equipment or facilities and inclusion of activities should not therefore be taken as a warranty from Activity Booking Office as to the safety standards of the principal suppliers.
6. Our responsibility to you & Providers' Conditions
Activity Booking Office will use all reasonable care in the selection and use of providers of services and activities forming part of the agreed itinerary.
Activity Booking Office does not accept liability in the following circumstances: if the client or any member of the party are at fault, which will include any losses or damage attributable to or resulting from failure on the part of any party member to abide by these terms and conditions.
If the failure is the fault of someone else not connected with providing services which make up the agreed itinerary; any unusual or unexpected circumstances beyond the control of Activity Booking Office or it's providers even if they had used all due care; or any event which Activity Booking Office or it's providers even with all due care, could not foresee or forestall; any instance of inappropriate behaviour, including insobriety.
Any travel activities, accommodation and other services are carried out subject to the provider's conditions of carriage, supply or contract which will be notified by the client if they depart significantly from standard industry practice or upon the client's request. If any provider can exclude or limit liability under any international convention or foreign law Activity Booking Office will rely on that exclusion or limitation.
Where the cause of loss, damage or injury is due to Activity Booking Office providers, sub-contractors, servants and/or agents, Activity Booking Office acceptance of liability is subject to assignment to it of the claimant's rights against the former and to the claimants co-operating with Activity Booking Office in any legal action it may take to enforce any right of subrogation or by way of any third party proceedings.
Activity Booking Office will offer such help as is reasonable in the circumstances to the party if any member suffers difficulties whilst participating in the itinerary.
Providers will often have their own booking conditions or conditions of carriage, and you will be bound by those as far as the relevant provider is concerned. Some of these conditions may limit or exclude liability on the part of the relevant provider, or give the provider the right to alter or cancel arrangements without penalty.
Where relevant, copies of such conditions will be available for inspection at our offices, or at the offices of the relevant provider.
7. Client Responsibilities
To ensure that all members of the party are informed about these terms and conditions and the booking/itinerary details.
To be responsible for the accuracy of information supplied.
The client must inform Activity Booking Office in writing of any special requests (for example, special facilities for disabled people which it or any of the party have so that Activity Booking Office is able to make arrangements, as far as reasonably possible, to cater for them.
Some of the activities provided by Activity Booking Office as part of the itinerary require elements of physical activity on the part of the party. The client will ensure that all members of the party are physically able to take part in the program, suffer no disabilities or conditions that may impair, restrict or endanger their involvement or that of other members of the party's involvement in the itinerary. If the client has any doubts or concerns regarding any member of the party's participation, these issues must be raised in writing at the time of booking, (for example asthma, high blood pressure, heart conditions, vertigo).
To review and recommend insurance and health insurances to all members of the party. It is important to note that certain activities contained within the itinerary may be excluded from the terms of certain travel, medical and life insurances. It is therefore the responsibility of the client to ensure that adequate insurance cover is provided for the party to cover likely eventualities whilst partaking in the itinerary.
To agree and progress with all payment timetables as set out above and in the booking confirmation invoice.
To ensure that all members of the party comply with all activity/element timetables of the itinerary. Failure to keep to the timetables may result in either discontinuation of the event/activity or cancellation. In either event Activity Booking Office will not be liable for any refund, compensation or any other costs that may be incurred.
To ensure that all members of the party act at all times in a safe, responsible and courteous manner, comply with all safety procedures (for the avoidance of doubt this includes an appropriate level of sobriety), listen and be present at all safety and information briefings relevant to the program's activities, make supervisors or any person in authority immediately aware of any equipment or site deficiencies or concerns, dress and/or equip themselves suitably for any event or activity as advised by Activity Booking Office, observe and obey all laws, requests (including the signing of any disclaimer) and conditions of use of any provider, including accommodation and entertainment venues.
Activity Booking Office by itself or its providers may end or cancel the program if the behaviour of the party or that of any person associated with the party is likely in the opinion of Activity Booking Office or its providers to cause distress, damage, danger to or to annoy other clients, or other members of the party, employees, property or anyone else.
If the party is prevented from travelling because any person in authority thinks any member of the party appears to be unfit to travel or likely to cause discomfort to or disturb other passengers, Activity Booking Office will not be liable to complete the program arrangements, and will not be liable for any refund, compensation or any other costs incurred by the party.
Activity Booking Office cannot accept liability for the behaviour of others in your accommodation and/or taking part in any activity and/or event associated and or in the same environment forming part of the itinerary, or if any facilities or services are removed as a result of their action.
