Please read these important details carefully. These paragraphs define our responsibility with respect to all our Experiences, goods and services sold and redeemed. These terms do not affect or restrict your statutory rights. Purchase or redemption of a Golden Moments Experience or item represents your acceptance of the following terms and conditions:

Our Experiences
Golden Moments gives notice that services provided in connection with its Experiences and itineraries are purchased from various independent suppliers who are not affiliated with Golden Moments and their partners in any way. Although it endeavours to choose quality suppliers of the Experiences offered, Golden Moments has no right to control their operations and therefore makes these arrangements upon the express condition that Golden Moments and its own agents and employees shall not be liable for any delay, mishap, inconvenience, expense, irregularity, bodily injury or death to person, or damage to property occasioned through the conduct or default of any company or individual engaged in providing these services. As a result, Golden Moments is not liable for any negligent or wilful act or failure to act of any such person or of any other third party. Each of these service companies who has been hired to provide the Experience is subject to the laws of the state or country where the service is provided, and operates in accordance with their own terms & conditions (available upon request) and participation is conditional upon acceptance of these.

Additionally, Golden Moments shall not be liable for: (a) any expenses incurred that are not expressly agreed to be a part of the payment associated with any individual Experience, including expenses that may be required either en route, prior to, or following an Experience; or (b) risks of delay, unanticipated
events, inconvenience, illness, bodily injury, emotional trauma or death, or property damage, for any reason. Therefore, as lawful consideration for being permitted to participate with such Experience, I hereby release and discharge forever Golden Moments from and against any and all liability arising from my participation with the experience. I agree that this release shall be legally binding upon me personally, all members of my family and all minors accompanying me, my and their heirs, successors, assigns, and legal representatives, it being my intention fully to assume all the risks associated with my participation with this Experience and to release Golden Moments from any and all liabilities to the maximum extent permitted by law.

Golden Moments reserves the right to decline to accept or to restrain from further participation any person it judges to be incapable of meeting the rigours and requirements of participating in the activities associated with any Experience, or any person whose actions or deportment impede the planned Experience or the rights, welfare or enjoyment of other participants. A refund based on the cost of the unused portion of the Experience is the limit of Golden Moments responsibility in such a case.

Experience Descriptions
The description of each experience contained in our online brochure and in the Golden Moments pack is at times abbreviated and is correct at time of print. However, we reserve the right to make reasonable changes to the programme without notice, including the right to withdraw or substitute locations. Where an alteration is material we will notify the recipient at the time their booking is confirmed or by subsequent communication. In the unlikely event of mechanical breakdown, illness or circumstances beyond our control, such as unsuitable weather conditions, we reserve the right to make reasonable substitutions of components or an equivalent value refund without notice. Experience and session durations are approximate and given as a guide only. Unless specifically stated otherwise, you will take your turn with other members of the public and there may be waiting time involved.

Personalised Gifts and Other Tangible Items
With these gifts, such as cases of wine and personalized wine bottles, you may not receive a Golden Moments voucher, and delivery times may vary. Courier/express fees also vary according to the gift concerned. Personalised goods can not be returned for refund. Please check when ordering.

Restrictions, Requirements & Important Information
Wherever appropriate we have included abbreviated health, age, weight and requirements, such as a valid driving licence or telephoning a weather-check hotline, on our website, brochures and vouchers. Full details are available on request and will be contained in booking documents. Please read carefully. Once you have received your purchase / gift pack please notify us within 7 days if the experience is unsuitable.

All experiences are offered subject to availability, and many are also subject to weather conditions on the day. Ideally, bookings should be made at least 28 days in advance. Longer notice may be required to secure weekends or peak season dates. You are advised not to make any travel, hotel or other arrangements until your booking has been confirmed in writing. In addition, we strongly advise you to re-confirm your booking direct with the venue 48 hours in advance of your session.

Once your booking has been completed, if you wish to cancel or amend this you may incur cancellation charges, although you may be covered under our cancellation insurance. In the unlikely event that we need to cancel an experience or component we or the venue will attempt to contact you. Please provide a contact number when booking so that we can reach you if necessary. In the unlikely event of cancellation the liability of Golden Moments is limited to re-booking a similar experience or component for another date, or an equivalent value refund to the cost of the cancelled experience component(s).

Covid-19 Policy for Train Journeys
We strongly recommend that you familiarise yourself with the advice from your national authority for overseas travel before departing. For UK Customers, the Foreign, Commonwealth & Development Office’s latest advice for travel to other countries is available here.

You agree to notify us if you test positive for COVID-19 , if you consider that you may have COVID-19 symptoms or if you become aware that you may have come into close contact with someone who has tested positive for COVID-19 or who may have COVID-19 symptoms, in each case prior to commencing your trip with us, and/or if you test positive for COVID-19 within 14 days of the end of your trip with us.

If you notify us before travelling and we (or the relevant travel suppliers) conclude that you are no longer able to travel because of the COVID-19 risks, then your booking will be treated as having been cancelled by you and our standard cancellation charges will apply.

We will, however, explore with you whether it is possible for you to postpone your booking to a later date, which may incur further charges. It might also be possible for you to transfer your booking to another person, subject to the terms of transfer set out in these Booking Conditions.

If you notify us during travel, you acknowledge that we or your travel suppliers (or local laws and regulations) may require you to follow certain measures designed to manage the risk of COVID-19 and may refuse to provide you with the relevant service(s). You may, for instance, be required to self-isolate for a period of time. You agree to comply with these requirements. In this instance, we will provide you with such reasonable assistance as we are able to in the circumstances. However, we will not be responsible for meeting any costs incurred by you or for refunding or compensating you for the curtailment of your holiday, cancelled or rebooked transportation, additional accommodation or other associated costs you incur in connection with the same.

We both agree that the measures set out above are a necessary part of keeping you, other travellers, employees and the public safe. You are making your booking in full knowledge that such measures are likely to form part of your trip and do not amount to Major Changes or other changes to your booking, nor do they amount to any Failure.We shall have no liability to you for any refunds, compensation, losses, costs, expenses or damages you incur in connection with the matters described above or if you are unable to travel or make use of all or part of your booking because of these matters. These are risks which you must protect through obtaining comprehensive travel insurance.

Force Majeure

Except where otherwise expressly stated in these conditions, we will not be liable or pay you compensation if our contractual obligations to you are affected by any event which we or the supplier(s) of the service(s) in question could not, even with all due care, foresee or avoid.

Should you find any errors or are unsure of any experience related information you must notify us before the experience date or within 7 working days, whichever is sooner.

The expiry date for ‘open-dated' vouchers is detailed on the voucher in your Golden Moments pack. If the recipient is unable to participate in the experience before that date the voucher may be extended for a further 9 months, provided we are notified during the 28 days prior to the expiry date. A GBP23.49 administration fee is chargeable, plus any price increase of the experience, which may include reissue of a new Golden Moments voucher. Extended vouchers are non-refundable. If your voucher has expired it may be possible to re-activate it for a fee of GBP32.49 plus any price increase in the experience.

All open-dated experiences can be exchanged once only for any other experience in our range provided we are notified before the expiry date. If the substituted experience is higher in price than the amount originally paid, you will need to pay the extra. If the substituted is lower in price than the amount originally paid, the balance will be held on account to be put towards another experience. Exchanged vouchers are non-refundable.

By purchasing a flexible gift voucher, you and any subsequent voucher holder accept flexible gift vouchers have a face value to the amount shown, and any suggested experience/product is subject to availability, change (such as price) and is for illustrative purposes only. Whilst every effort is made to ensure the descriptions and pictures contained within the website and on gift vouchers are a true reflection of the events in respect of which the voucher may be redeemed, these do not form part of a contract. Every effort is made to avoid passing on location cost increases to voucher holders but should this occur the recipient can either pay the difference and increase the value of their face value flexible gift voucher or opt to use their existing face value gift voucher credit towards another experience to the value of within our range. For security reasons, any voucher issued without a participant name will need to be returned to us before the voucher can be booked or exchanged. Golden Moments cannot be held responsible for lost or missing vouchers.
