Terms & Conditions

Children’s Fares

Children between the ages of 3-13 inclusive are generally charged two thirds of the adult fare to the nearest £1.00. Children under 3 will travel free if not occupying a seat. No reduction is given on ‘Seaside Sprees’ or ‘Rural Rides’.

Admission fees

Are usually included in the Tour fare. The only main exception to this concerns visits to properties in the care of the National Trust. Passengers who are members of the National Trust are therefore advised to bring their membership cards with them.

Smoking, Hot Food and Alcohol

In view of the irritation smoking and the consumption of hot food can cause in the close confines of a coach they, along with the consumption of alcohol, are banned on our vehicles.

Departure Times

The time shown on your ticket is wherever possible the time the coach actually departs and it cannot wait after this time. So please be at your departure point at least 10 minutes early. During a tour the driver will give you further details of stops during the tour. We will not be held responsible for any passenger arriving late at any time.

Lost Property

The recovery and return of Lost Property is time-consuming and expensive so a charge of £2 per item will be levied. There is no guarantee that lost property can be traced. All property on our coaches is carried at ‘Owners Risk’ and the company will not be held responsible for items left on our vehicles whilst they are unattended i.e. Motorway Services. Lost Property will be held for a maximum of 4 weeks from date of Tour.
