The Boring - but Important - Bits        Please Read Carefully

Inverness, the capital of the Highlands
Prices and payment - All Land Cruise prices are per person, double occupancy. Single supplements are shown for each tour. Single supplements are rates imposed by hotels and charged to us. Not included in price is airfare, insurance, personal spending, lunches and any items not specifically mentioned for individual tours. All ground transportation, escorts, admissions, special events, breakfasts and dinners mentioned, service charges, baggage handling (one suitcase per person), tipping and transfers are included. A non-refundable deposit of $500 is due at the time of booking. Final payment due 60 days prior to start of tour. Payment can be cheque, MasterCard or Visa. Please note that because currency rates can change daily, there will be some differences in US credit card exchanges since they must be processed in Candian funds then converted back. This can mean either a slightly lower or higher charge than the price or amount processed. To avoid this, US residents can pay by cheque. Prices of tours are subject to change because of currency fluctuation. Prices, set in early December 2010 are based on either Sterling in the case of United Kingdom, and Euros in Europe or the local currency of other countries. Please note that if paying by credit card, final payment will automatically be taken 60 days prior to departure. Cheques must be received by us on or before the due date.

Insurance - We strongly recommend purchase of comprehensive insurance at the time of booking. This can be done through your travel agent or insurance companies. If you wish, we can put you in touch with travel insurance agents. Rates vary depending on age, duration of stay and health. The Fraser Connection takes no responsibility for anyone not insured.

Cancellations and refunds - If a tour participant is required to cancel, the following penalties apply: Up to 60 days prior to start of tour - Amount of deposit; from 60 days- 100% of total cost. No refunds will be made for unused accommodation and/or services. Protect yourself and take out insurance.

Transfers- Transfers from airport to hotel will be arranged for tour participants who come in the day the tour commences or up to two days prior. Transfers from the hotel to the airport will be arranged for tour participants on the final day of the tour.

Tour departure time- All tours depart from their starting point at 9:00 or 9:30 a.m. on the date shown for each tour unless otherwise indicated. It is the responsibility of tour participants to be at the starting point on time. We recommend guests arrive a day early to get over jet lag and to rest up before the tour begins. The Fraser Connection has rooms available at their airport hotels at a group rate.

Baggage - The Fraser Connection covers all baggage handling for one ordinary suitcase per person, up to a weight of 50 lbs. Carry on baggage is the responsibility of the tour participant. Extra cases can be carried, if space available, at $50 per bag for the tour.

Travel documents, personal items and air tickets - Tour participants are responsible for their passport and other travel documents, and for safe keeping of their air ticket and belongings.

Tour membership - We reserve the right to accept or reject any person. The tour manager may require any tour participant to withdraw from a tour if the participant's action or conduct is deemed offensive or a nuisance to others and the Company shall have no liability.

Responsibility- The Fraser Connection disclaims responsibility for any loss, damage, accidents, change of schedule, or other irregularities caused by or arising from common carriers, airlines, coach companies, hotels, or circumstances beyond our control. We reserve the right to change dates of tours if deemed necessary and to change the itinerary without notice. We reserve the right to cancel a tour at any time in which case the Fraser Connection shall have no responsibility beyond the refund of all monies paid for the tour by the tour participant.
