Travel insurance is essential for all Clients undertaking our Holidays, Tours and Excursions.
It should provide adequate protection for the full duration of the Holiday Package to cover personal injury, medical expenses, repatriation expenses, loss of luggage and the expenses associated with cancellation or curtailment of the holiday.
Failure to obtain travel insurance and supply the Company with the policy details, before the Holiday commences, will constitute a breach of these booking conditions and result in the termination of the Contact, and all monies paid to the Company will be forfeited.
If a Client becomes ill, all hospital expenses, doctors' fees and repatriation costs are the Client's responsibility and the Company shall not be liable for any refund of the Holiday Package costs.
NB: Itineraries are a guide only, and are subject to change according to local circumstances.
