- For reschedule requests customers are advised to email requests (with their preferred alternative date) in good time before the deadline to: firstname.lastname@example.org
- Should a customer fail to provide a correct contact email address when making a booking direct online via the website, Brit Music Tours cannot then be held liable for confirmation details not being received by the customer. In this instance, customers are required to take the most immediate and reasonable course of action to clarify (as far in advance of their tour departure date and time) the details of any booking made. Brit Music Tours recommends that customers email email@example.com providing as much information about their booking as possible.
- If a passenger is unable to make it to a tour for any reason (e.g. train or traffic delays, illness, waiting by mistake in a different place to the actual meeting point) then no liability can be accepted by Brit Music Tours and no refund or rescheduling of that tour can be made.
- Mobile communication between our office and guides is not always possible, (e.g. the guide is leading a tour, bad signal etc.) – therefore, Brit Music Tours cannot accept liability for being unable to relay messages to guides on behalf of customers experiencing difficulties or running late for tours, as these situations are beyond our control.
- Guides are unable to make and receive calls once a tour has started.
- Customers are strongly advised to allow sufficient time for travel to their tour meeting point well in advance of the departure time and to build in time for potential transport delays.
- Guides reserve the right to change and adapt their itineraries according to variable conditions and/ or road restrictions on the day of a tour.
- Please note that the time for which a tour is scheduled is its departure time – guests are therefore advised to arrive at least 10 minutes prior to the departure time for any tour.

- For children under 3 years old, if a parent/ guardian wishes to ensure that their child has a suitable baby/ child car seat, they must provide their own and must ensure that both the child and the seat are safely secured.
- If the parent decides that their whole party will not participate in the tour because they did not bring a safety seat, then no refund will be applicable.
