This website is made up of descriptions of arrangements provided by tour operators, accommodation providers, visitor attractions and other tourism businesses ("merchants"). Such content is the responsibility of the tour operator, accommodation provider, visitor attraction, other tourism business or third party creator of the content. We have no responsibility for such content as we are merely providing access to such content as a service to you. We do not endorse, support, represent or guarantee the truthfulness, accuracy or reliability of any information about any arrangements featured on this website or any opinions posted by third parties. While we will endeavour to remove any offensive or harmful content from the website as soon as reasonably practicable, we shall not be liable on account of the accuracy, defamatory nature, completeness, or otherwise of such content.

We act only as an advertising intermediary in respect of all services or arrangements featured on this website (“arrangements”). We accept no liability in relation to any contract you enter into or for any arrangements you purchase or for the acts or omissions of any merchant(s) or other person(s) or party(ies) connected with any arrangements. For all arrangements, your contract will be with the merchant of the arrangements.

The terms and conditions of the merchant(s) of your confirmed arrangements will apply to your booking. These terms and conditions may limit and/or exclude the merchant's liability to you.

Nothing on this website constitutes an offer on our part. The matters detailed constitute an invitation to you to make an offer to the applicable merchant on the merchant’s stated terms to purchase arrangements we feature. The applicable merchant may accept or decline any such offer. All arrangements featured or referred to are at all times prior to specific confirmation subject to availability and no warranties, promises or representations are given as to availability.

If you need to cancel or amend a confirmed booking, cancellation/amendment charges will generally be payable. The amount of such charges varies according to the time your notice of cancellation is received by the merchant concerned before departure. Please check the merchant’s terms and conditions.
