3rd Party tickets and Cancellation

Regarding any cancelled tours and where tickets for attractions have been purchased in advance on your behalf, then whilst every effort will be made to get those refunded from the supplier, it may be that those tickets will not be refundable.

Cruise Ships

Cruise ship tourists will be fully refunded if their ship has been unable to dock at the arranged Port of collection due to the Port being closed by the Port Authorities due to adverse weather conditions or any other reason. It is the responsibility of the customer to contact Glentarra Scottish Tours as soon as it is known the ship will not berth as considerable travel may be incurred in attending at the Port in question.

Failure to appear at arranged meeting point

Potential tourists having failed to notify cancellation or otherwise fail to turn up for any arranged tour, will not be refunded.
