ALTERATIONS BY LANG ATHOLL LIMITED: We will do our utmost to provide the trip arrangements that have been confirmed, but we must retain the right to modify or cancel any trip, accommodation or arrangement, if unforeseen circumstances amounting to ‘force majeure’ arise. In such circumstance, we will inform you as soon as possible, and, should the change be such that it alters the nature of the trip, we shall give you the choice of an alternative trip or a full refund of all money paid. In recognition we will absorb all financial loss consequent upon cancellation due to ‘force majeure’. We shall not cancel any trip for reason of political tension or natural disaster unless specifically recommended to do so by the Foreign Office.
Lang Atholl Limited also retain the right to make any changes to any transport method and car hire. In these unlikely circumstances an alternative method or car will be sourced which will be of a similar standard to those mentioned in your original booking.

Any requests for alteration to an itinerary should be made in writing and signed by the signatory of the original Booking Form. If alterations are made less than 8 weeks prior to departure, an additional £50 per booking charge will be levied together with any communications costs incurred.
Due to the nature of this tour it is imperative to mention that any changes made by you to our tour offering may also affect point of origin and final destination of the tour.

TOUR CANCELLATION: The prices of tours are based on a varying minimum number of passengers travelling. If this minimum number is not reached, at least 8 weeks prior to the scheduled departure date we will either, cancel the tour and offer a refund in full, or we may propose a supplementary charge to enable said tour to operate, subject to the passenger’s agreement.
Prices may rise or fall due to numbers of clients attending the tour which in the case of a cancellation or change to the tour will be met by the client.

TRAVEL INSURANCE: It is imperative that you take out adequate travel insurance to our reasonable satisfaction. We take no responsibility for any injuries or loss to you incurred whilst you are taking part in any optional activities that are outside our packages.

We will require you to let us have evidence of your insurance at least 8 weeks prior to departure or at the time of booking if later. We reserve the right to terminate your booking if you fail to obtain travel insurance cover.

For larger groups there will be a tour guide present who will breathalyse any member of the tour who is suspected of being over the drink drive limit before entering any of the cars, it is the client’s responsibility to ensure he/she adheres to the drink driving laws of the country and not that of Lang Atholl Limited, even if a guide is present. If this is the case the member in question will not be allowed to drive for that day and will spend the day in the lead vehicle. For smaller groups and if a guide is not present it is the clients responsibility to ensure that they have adhered to all drink driving laws and not the responsibility of Lang Atholl Limited.

Guests are welcome to drink when away from the cars as long as they do so responsibly and still meet the limits the following day.
