Regrettably, coastal resorts occasionally suffer sea mists, fog and strong winds. If either your outward or return journey is delayed, we recommend that you have sufficient funds to obtain additional meals and accommodation. Under certain circumstances these costs may be recovered by insurance, which is strongly recommended. No claim for compensation or expenses due to adverse weather conditions will be considered. If however clients wish to cancel due to such delays or cancellations of the transportation, then full cancellation charges will apply and clients will be required to have adequate travel insurance to cover such circumstances should the situation arise.
