We shall not be liable for any delay in performing any of our obligations under this Contract where the delay is due to circumstances beyond our control. Examples of circumstances beyond our control are strikes and exceptionally bad weather. However, if any of our suppliers or agents let us down, this will not be treated as being a cause beyond our control.
- Adjustments and Surcharges
If circumstances beyond our control necessitate adjustments to the tour, including price increases due to increased costs (exchange rate, global issues, fuel, hotels), we will promptly notify you of these modifications. We will absorb such costs to a point, but should the exchange rate fall below $1.10 to every £1.00 30 days before the start of the first tour, a surcharge of 5% of the tour cost will need to be added.
