Standard Cancellation Policy

If you cancel or cannot take your tour as a consequence of force majeure, Scotlandtravel 24 will refund the amount you have paid for your tour to a limit of 50 %. 
Force Majeure includes impersonal events such as war, civil insurrection, strikes, volcanoes, extreme weather, earthquake or natural disaster that makes the it dangerous or impossible to safely undertake the tour. The determination of what constitutes 'Force Majeure' is at the discretion of ToursByLocals. However, a travel warning issued by SEPA (Scottish Environment Protection Agency), or the local weather authority after you book your tour invokes 'force majeure' or if you are on a ship and it is unable to dock for whatever reason, you are covered under this 'Force Majeure' provision.


For cancellation due to any other reasons (such as illness, change of personal circumstances), the date on which the request to cancel is received by Scotlandtravel 24 will determine the refund due as follows:

If you cancel 60 days or more before the start of the tour: You will be charged 20% percent of the tour value, the remainder will be refunded to you. These upfront costs represent out of pocket expenses of the Tour Guide for tickets, transportation deposits and other non-recoverable tour expenses. Please send a message to the Tour Guide to find out what, if any, these costs are.

If you cancel less than 60 days before the start of the tour: You will be liable to pay the full cancellation fee.

If however you wish to make an exclusive booking i.e One person for the tour you will not be covered by our 60 day policy and will be liable for the full 50% cancellation fee in the event of a non-force majeure cancellation.

In some cases, the Tour Guide may cancel a tour due to weather or other circumstance. In the event that the Tour Guide cancels the tour, you may choose between a rescheduling of the tour, a full refund of all monies paid OR a credit towards an alternative tour. If you choose to accept a credit, the difference in the cost of the alternative tour will be refunded or paid by you as applicable.
