T&Cs

Simpson Travel activities and experiences are provided by independent local companies which are neither owned nor controlled by Simpson Travel and for whom we act only as an agent. Whilst every effort is made to keep the description of our experiences and activities up to date, the provider may cancel or amend your experience at their discretion for many reasons, including where it considers there may be a risk to your comfort, health or safety. Some excursions/activities (e.g self-drive boat hire, diving etc.) may contain an element of risk or require a good level of physical fitness, and, if in doubt, you should contact us so we can put you in touch directly with the local provider before you decide to confirm your booking. Please also check that you are covered for the activity(ies) in question by your travel insurance policy.

In acting in the capacity of an agent on behalf of the provider, your contract will be with that provider and will be subject to their standard terms and conditions, and it will not form part of your contracted holiday arrangements with us. Any complaint (including any allegation of breach of contract or negligence) should be taken up with the excursion/activity provider directly. We will do our best to assist you but will have no liability in relation to the performance of that contract.
