1.4 Unless otherwise stated, references to clauses and sub-clauses are references to clauses and sub-clauses of these Conditions. The clause headings are for ease of reference only and shall not affect the construction or interpretation of these Conditions.
2.1 Subject to your payment of the Fees and your compliance with your obligations under these Conditions, we will provide the Services to you as set out in the Booking on the Tour Date.
2.2 The Tour shall:
2.2.1 commence at the times stated on the Website and in the Booking. We refer you to clause 5 in relation to your obligation to attend the Tour on time;
2.2.2 stop at the locations described on the Website and in the Booking, but any times indicated for stops will be estimates only; and
2.2.3 terminate on or around the time stated on the Website and in the Booking, but this is an estimate only and will depend upon factors such as traffic, weather conditions and any delays incurred during the Tour stops.
2.3 You understand and accept that you will be unable to attend the Tour if you are incapable of walking up and the down the Tour coach steps unaided. There are approximately 5 small steps and 1 high step. In those circumstances we may, in our sole discretion, provide a full or part refund of the Fees but are under no obligation to do so.
2.4 We instruct a third party to provide the coach for the Tour. We are covered by the third party’s insurance whilst providing the Services on the coach and will additionally have (and will maintain) appropriate public liability insurance. If you require further details of such insurance, please contact us at email@example.com.
2.5 We use our best efforts to ensure that we provide the Services to you in the manner set out on the Website but from time to time it may be that we are unable to do so (for example, due to ill health). In those circumstances we will seek to instruct a competent third party to provide the Services to you on the Tour Date. If we are unable to instruct a third party we will contact you as soon as practically possible to refund the Fees to you or move your Booking to another Tour Date.
2.6 It may be necessary for us to make decisions during the provision of the Services that give rise to minor changes, but which do not affect the overall scope of the Services to be delivered. You agree that we may make such minor changes without prior consultation to the extent that they do not adversely affect the outcome of the Services in a material way.
2.7 We do not allocate seat numbers in advance of a Tour and are under no obligation to do so. You are advised to attend as early as you can on the Tour Date to reserve your seating. You understand and accept that on a busy Tour, our single customers may be sat next to each other.
2.8 If your Booking is for a “day tour fare” (as described on the Website), the Fees will not include entry into the English Heritage site at Warkworth Castle or the provision of any lunch during the Tour. You, along with our other customers, may bring your own refreshments on the Tour coach so long as all litter is disposed of in the bins provided.
3.1 You may make a Booking through our Website, by email, by telephone or in person on the Tour Date. The Booking will set out the nature of the Tour (including any relevant times and location stops), the Tour Date and the Fees.
3.2 Bookings are made directly with customers and, unless we otherwise agree, no Bookings through third parties will be accepted.
3.3 You shall confirm in the Booking whether you intend to bring a dog with you on the Tour. We accommodate all friendly dogs so long as they are accompanied at all times by their owners and do not occupy a seat on the Tour coach. You understand and accept that we may refuse your dog onto the Tour if we deem, in our sole discretion, that it is aggressive or otherwise unsuitable to attend. If you then choose not to attend the Tour, we may in our sole discretion provide a refund of the Fees but are under no obligation to do so.
3.4 If you wish to make a Booking through our Website, by email or by telephone, you will be required to check that the Booking is correct and then accept the Booking by submitting it through our Website and paying the Fees, or confirming to us by email or telephone that it is correct and paying the Fees. Your response will constitute an offer. We will accept the offer by sending an email confirming the same or commencing the delivery of the Services. At that point the Agreement will be formed.
3.5 If you wish to make a Booking in person on the Tour Date, we will use our best efforts to accommodate you but you understand and accept that this will be dependant upon whether there is availability on the Tour. We will confirm orally the details of the Tour and, if you are content, you will pay the Fees in cash. This will constitute an offer. We will accept the offer by providing you with a receipt or commencing the delivery of the Services. At that point the Agreement will be formed.
3.6 Should you wish to amend the Booking after the Agreement is formed (for example, to a different Tour or a new Tour Date before the end of our current trading period), you will need to contact us by email or telephone setting out the nature of your request no less than 14 days before the Tour Date. We may in our sole discretion amend the Booking but are under no obligation to do so, and additional Fees may be payable including an administration Fee of £10.00. Should you wish to cancel the Booking, we refer you to clause 6 (“Cancellation”).
- Fees and Payments
4.1 All Fees and charges will include any applicable Value Added Tax (VAT) (or any similar tax) which will be paid by you at the rate and in the manner from time to time prescribed by law.

4.2 All sums owed by you to us shall be paid by you together with any applicable VAT, and without any set off or other deduction upon making the Booking, either:

If you make an unjustified payment and a charge-back occurs, you’ll be liable to pay us within 7 days an amount equal to the charge-back plus any reasonable costs, expenses or losses that we have incurred as a result.
