Should material changes to a tour or holiday be necessary or extraordinary circumstances arise and Wildabout must cancel a tour or holiday, Wildabout will offer either an alternate tour or holiday of equal value or a refund of monies paid to Wildabout for the tour or holiday. This shall be the limit of Wildabout’s liability.
Wildabout will not accept or have any liability for any acts or omissions whether negligent or otherwise of any supplier or person providing services in connection with your tour or holiday unless such a person is employed by Wildabout. Your tour or holiday is subject to each service provider’s individual terms and conditions.
Right to Refuse Service
Wildabout reserves the right to refuse service to persons who cause a nuisance, conduct themselves in an offensive or disorderly manner, or threaten, in any way, theirs or the safety of others. In such a circumstance, Wildabout will not be responsible for any damage or injury sustained by you as a result of your behaviour. Should Wildabout exercise our right to refuse service, you forfeit all monies paid to Wildabout.
Should you have a concern or complaint, please contact Wildabout as soon as possible and we will do our best to resolve your issue immediately. If you are still dissatisfied, please submit your concern or complaint to Wildabout in writing not more than twenty-eight (28) days after your tour or holiday departure date.
