Walkalongway.com reserve the right to cancel, amend or alter your holiday at any time. Where this is necessary, you will be offered an alternative holiday or a full refund on your booking.
We cannot compensate you for the cost of travel or accommodation in connection with your holiday which you have not booked through us.
Our holidays do not require specialist knowledge or high levels of proficiency in cycling or walking.
It is your responsibility to ensure that you have a reasonable level of health / fitness, adequate experience, suitable clothes/equipment and remain aware of risks involved in a walking holiday.
Walking, Cycling and Mountain Biking, in common with other adventurous outdoor activities, are potentially hazardous pursuits. While we do everything possible to reduce this risk to an acceptable level (by ensuring those responsible for your safety are appropriately trained/qualified/experienced, by maintaining our equipment in good working order, and by adhering to safety guidelines & best practice) it is not possible to eliminate the risk entirely. (If it were, these would not be “adventurous activities”.). Be aware many coastal paths are on high cliffs.
By booking with us, you acknowledge these risks, and agree to follow guidance given by our staff in order to ensure your safety.
In the unlikely event that you are dissatisfied with your Walkalongway Holiday and have reason for complaint, please contact us immediately so that we can address your concerns.
Please ensure any verbal complaints are also put in writing and sent to our office within 28 days of your return.
