Terms & Conditions

A non-refundable deposit of £300 per person should be submitted with your completed booking form (unless otherwise stated on the tour information); this ensures a place is then reserved in your name. On receipt, a booking confirmation will be issued; showing the date your balance becomes due. Tours booked within 60 days of departure will require payment in full.

Balance of Payment
We send a final invoice and we request the balance of payment for your tour 60 days prior to departure. Late payment may result in the cancellation of your tour.

Circumstances beyond our control may dictate an increase in the cost of your tour. Any increase less than 5% of the advertised price will be absorbed within the original price - any increase over 5% we may need to add to the final invoice.

If You Cancel
All cancellations must be in writing and the following terms apply:

We strongly recommend you take out Holiday Cancellation Insurance.
If We Cancel

We reserve the right to cancel any tour - however, this would only become necessary in exceptional circumstances. In such an event we would issue a full refund. Moto Tours will not be held responsible or offer a refund/compensation in any of the following situations: war, riots, civil unrest, terrorism, natural disaster or any unforeseen cancellations due to industrial disputes and/or weather.

Transfer of Booking
In the event of your having to cancel, you may transfer your booking to another person. However, you will be liable for any administration costs and will be responsible for your nominee paying their monies in full.

Tour Changes
Arrangements for your tour are made months in advance. It is therefore inevitable that changes can occur. In most cases, these changes will be minor and will not affect your holiday. However, in the event of a major change, we will advise you immediately and you may then (a) continue the tour with the new itinerary, (b) accept an alternative of the same or similar value, or (c) cancel your holiday with a full refund.
