Extenuating circumstances policy and the coronavirus (COVID-19)

Updated 30 March 2020

On 11 March, the World Health Organisation (WHO) declared the outbreak of coronavirus, known as COVID-19, to be a global pandemic. We are providing the following coverage for COVID-19 under our extenuating circumstances policy to help protect travellers and provide peace of mind.

Summary

Reservations made on or before March 14th, 2020 for activities with a boarding date between April 1st, 2020 and April 30th, 2020 are covered by the policy and may be cancelled before boarding. Guests who cancel will receive a full refund, and we may cancel any booking offering you a full refund as well.

Our cancellation policy will apply as usual to reservations made after 14th March, 2020, and to reservations made on or before March 14th, 2020 with boarding dates after April 30th, 2020.
