You or the Named Travellers may not change the Itinerary. We reserve the right to change the Itinerary if required. In the unlikely event that We do require to change the Itinerary We shall let You know as soon as that becomes apparent to us. We will endeavour to ensure that any change is of like value and character. If it is not, and You or the Named Travellers do not wish to include the change to the Itinerary in the Adventure, we shall offer You a refund to the value of that part of the Adventure. Otherwise, We shall not be liable to You or the Named Travellers in any way in respect of any loss caused to You or the Named Travellers due to the change. A change to the Itinerary shall not constitute a material breach of the Contract.
Other than as provided for in this clause, We shall not be liable to You or the Named Travellers in any way in respect of any loss caused to You or the Named Travellers due to cancellation or re-scheduling of the Grand Prix for any reason. In the event that the Grand Prix is cancelled or re-scheduled before Departure You may:
A cancel the Adventure and obtain a full refund of the Price;
B if the Grand Prix is re-scheduled, experience the Adventure then; or
C transfer the Adventure to the Grand Prix the following year.
In respect of B and C, We shall pass on to you any compensation or repayments that we receive from Our Suppliers in respect of You and the Named Travellers.
The Itinerary and full information about the Adventure shall be supplied in good time prior to Departure. All documents relative to the Adventure (including tickets, passes, keys and other such authorisations) that You and the Named Travellers may require to experience the Adventure shall be supplied to You on or before Departure, or at such other times during the Adventure as may be necessary. Once such documents have been supplied to You, You shall be responsible for them and We shall not be liable in any way for any loss caused to You, or the named Travellers, as a result of their loss, damage or theft (including refusal of entry into the Grand Prix or any other venue, or onto any travel).
Other than Tickets (clause 3), it is Your responsibility to ensure that You and the named Travellers have any and all passports, visas, identifications and other papers that You may require to experience the Adventure, including gaining entry into the relevant venue, onto the relevant travel, or into the relevant country.
You and the Named Travellers agree to be bound by the terms and conditions of our Suppliers insofar as notice of the same is given to You or the Named Travellers.
The Contract may not be assigned in any way other than as follows: In the event that after Reservation You or any of the Named Travellers are unable to experience the Adventure for any reason, You may assign the place on one occasion only to a third party provided that You tell Us of the assignation (giving the full name and address of the third party) in writing not less than thirty days before Departure. The third party shall then become a Named Traveller. You must tell us of any Special Requirements of the third party when you tell us about the assignation and we reserve the right to increase the Price to take account of such Special Requirements. We also reserve the right o increase the Price to take account of increased costs charged to us by Our Suppliers as a result of the assignation (for example, most airlines do not permit a change of traveller after flight tickets have been issued so We may require to book a further seat at additional cost). The third party shall become jointly and severally liable to Us for payment of the Price or any unpaid part.
It is the responsibility of You and the Named Travellers to be available for Departure on time. If You or a Named Traveller is not on time, We may depart without You or them. The conduct of You and the Named Travellers shall at all times be reasonable having regard to the people around you; and shall comply with the rules and terms of Our Suppliers and the laws of the relevant country. If in Our opinion such conduct falls short of this responsibility, We may eject You or the Named Traveller, as the case may be, from the Adventure and we shall have no further duties towards you. In the event that You are ejected from the Adventure due to your conduct, we shall remain entitled to full payment of the Price.
We shall deliver the Adventure at all times exercising reasonable skill and care in respect of You and the Named Travellers. Only to the extant that We do not exercise such reasonable skill and care may You or a named Traveller make a claim against us for Our failure to deliver any part of the Adventure.
You or any Named Traveller must communicate any complaint about any aspect of the Adventure in writing at the earliest opportunity to Us and the Supplier concerned.
Except as provided for in these terms, We shall not be liable to You or the Named Travellers in any way in respect of any loss, injury (including personal injury) or damage caused to You or the Named Travellers to the extent that such loss, injury or damage is as a result of the acts or omissions of You, the Named Travellers, or third parties, or of events outwith our control (including delays to flights or other travel; strike; theft; mechanical breakdown; quarantine; state or police restrictions; war; terrorism; bad weather; or other force majeure; or the ill health in any way of You or a Named Traveller). Otherwise, Our liability whether in contract, negligence, under statute or otherwise, for any loss, injury (including personal injury), or damage suffered by You or the Named Travellers and arising from or in connection with the Contract shall be limited to the sum equal to the Price; and We shall have no liability for any consequential loss including loss of profit suffered by You or the Named Travellers. You may make any claim arising from or in connection with the Contract within three years from the date of Departure. The Contact shall cease to be enforceable three years after Departure except in so far as it is founded on in Court proceedings commenced within this period. You agree not to make any claim against Our officers or employees personally, but to make the claim against Us for their acts or omissions. This clause shall not operate to exclude or limit any liability which may not be excluded or limited by law.
We do not offer insurance in respect of the Adventure. You and the Named Travellers are therefore required to arrange Your own insurance covering at least cancellation by You of the Adventure, or the cost of assistance, including repatriation, in the event of accident or illness. You must exhibit to Us a relevant certificate of the appropriate insurance before Departure and Your failure to do so shall amount to a material breach of the Contract. We may refuse to allow You or any Named Traveller who does not have the relevant insurance to depart with us and experience the Adventure.
These terms together with the Reservation and Acknowledgement form the Contract in entirety and no advertisements, statements, or other representations, other than notice of a Change under clause 7, shall form any part of the Contract.
The Contract is governed by the laws of Scotland only. Any claim, dispute, or difference arising from or in connection with the Contract, whether in contract, negligence, under statute , or otherwise, shall be determined by the laws of Scotland. Only Dundee Sheriff Court or the Court of Session shall have jurisdiction in relation to any such claim, dispute or difference. We, You and the Named Travellers shall attempt in good faith to resolve any such claim, dispute or difference between us, including (if either of us requests) attending at mediation, prior to raising court action.
We may process personal information about You and the Named Travellers supplied by You for providing the Adventure, administration, training and/or marketing and may pass it to our Suppliers for these purposes. When We do this We will always take reasonable steps to make sure the personal information is protected. We may also process personal information for any purposes required by law and for commercial purposes (e.g. creditworthiness checks, tracing and debt recovery). We may use the personal information to contact You or the Named Travellers about Our services, but You or the Named Travellers can choose not to receive such material at any time by letting Us know.
