Please check the requirements for each Experience carefully before placing your order as you are responsible for ensuring that you (and those on whose behalf you are making a booking) meet the criteria for an Experience.
You will require a valid passport to attend any Experience based outside the UK and may also require a visa. You are responsible for ensuring that you have the correct documentation (including valid identification documents, passports and/or visas) required to travel to the location of any Experience you book. You are also responsible for checking any required or recommended travel vaccinations or other required or recommenced health precautions.
We may impose limits on the number of tickets or places that you can book for a particular Experience. Any such limits will be highlighted on the Experience page when you add tickets/places to your basket or when you are discussing the Experience with the Customer Care Advisors. As a consequence, if repeated attempts are made to book tickets or places for such Experiences, we reserve the right to refuse to meet all or a portion of the orders placed.
If we are unable to accept your booking because we are unable to supply you with all the tickets/places you wish to or the precise type of ticket(s)/place(s) that you wish to book, we will contact you and give you the opportunity to cancel or amend your order. If you cancel your order and payment has been taken from you, we will refund you the full amount you have paid as soon as possible. If you choose to amend your order and payment has been taken from you, we will refund any monies due to you as a consequence of such amendment as soon as possible.
The Customer Care Advisors are available on +44 20 76 60 60 71, Monday to Saturday 8am to 8pm, excluding United Kingdom public holidays to answer questions about Experiences.
You may also book tickets for any of the Experiences by calling the Customer Care Advisors on +44 20 76 60 60 71. Orders placed by telephone will be subject to these Experience Terms and any applicable Additional Terms.
Once you have placed an order for an Experience, you cannot amend the order.
All prices shown on our Site are in Pounds (£) Sterling and are inclusive of VAT.
Please note, that the information and prices shown on our Site for an Experience may have changed by the time you come to book your Experience. Whilst every effort is made to ensure the accuracy of the Site, Experience descriptions and prices change, and errors do occasionally occur. You must therefore ensure you check all details of your chosen Experience (including the price) with us at the time of booking.
All costs and expenses not expressly included within the price quoted on the Site or by Customer Care Advisors (including, by way of example, the cost of travel/cancellation insurance, the cost of travel to an Experience or accommodation costs at an Experience where accommodation is not included in the Experience) are your responsibility. Where they are not included within the price of the ticket, we recommend that you do not make any travel, accommodation, or other arrangements until you have received the Dispatch Confirmation from us.
Payment for Experiences must be made by either using PayPal, an online-only payment system, or a credit or debit card. Payments by PayPal will require you to have a PayPal account. For payments by credit or debit cards, we accept Amex, Mastercard or Visa. Payments are debited in Pounds (£) Sterling.
For most Experiences, your PayPal account, credit, or debit card will be charged shortly before the Dispatch Confirmation is sent though payment may be taken earlier if the date of the Experience is more than 15 days after the date on which you place your order.
DELIVERY OF EXPERIENCE TICKETS
Please check your ticket(s) when you receive them to ensure that they are correct. If there are any problems with your ticket(s) or you have not received your ticket(s) 24 hours prior to the date of the Experience, please contact the Customer Care Advisors on +44 20 76 60 60 71.
USE OF EXPERIENCE TICKETS
Tickets to Experiences are for sale to consumers and their guests only. Tickets to Experiences are personal revocable licences and remain the property of MacDonald & Muir at all times. Any ticket(s) re-sold or transferred for profit or commercial gain or obtained or used in breach of these Experience Terms will become voidable and the person seeking to use such a ticket may be refused entry to, or ejected from, the Experience without refund (and may also be subject to legal action).
In many instances (as will be indicated at the time of booking), tickets can only be used by named individuals and identity checks may be in place at the Experience.
It is your responsibility to ensure that you (and your guests) meet the published criteria for attendance at or participation in an Experience and are able to attend the Experience you have booked. We accept no responsibility if you (or any additional attendees for whom you have booked) are unable to attend an Experience (save where this is due to our breach of these Experience Terms or our negligence). At our discretion, we may, however, allow you to transfer a booking for an Experience to another person meeting all the booking criteria for the Experience – please call us to discuss this option.
CANCELLATION OF EXPERIENCES
The right to cancel a Contract under the Consumer Contracts (Information, Cancellation and Charges) Regulations 2013 does not apply to bookings for Experiences. Once you have booked an Experience, you cannot cancel your booking save where permitted by these Experience Terms.
We will only refund money received from you for an Experience using the same method originally used by you to pay for your purchase. If you have paid by credit/debit card, the same card will be refunded. It is not possible to refund a different card.
Where an Experience includes travel, we strongly recommend that you and any other individuals on whose behalf you are booking an Experience take out travel insurance at the time of booking to protect you from unforeseen circumstances.
ADDITIONAL TERMS FOR THE RESPECTIVE EXPERIENCE
Further conditions and requirements may be incorporated into and apply to the Contract between us and you for an Experience from the venue operator or other persons involved in the organisation of the Experience (for example, admission requirements for specific venues). Any such further conditions and requirements will be drawn to your attention where they are applicable to you. For example, they may be shown at the time of booking, on the ticket itself or be displayed at the venue or other premises used for the Experience.
We, our representatives, sub-contractors and any applicable venue operator, reserve the right to refuse you entry to and/or eject you from an Experience in reasonable circumstances, including: (a) if you behave in a manner which has affected or is likely to affect the enjoyment of other persons at the Experience; (b) if you (in our, our representatives or sub-contractors and/or the venue operator's reasonable opinion) behave in a threatening, dangerous, abusive, insulting or otherwise inappropriate manner (this includes behaviours such as being under the influence of illegal drugs or causing a nuisance); (c) for health and safety or licensing reasons; (d) if you refuse to comply with security searches at the Experience; and/or (e) if you breach these Experience Terms or the Terms and Conditions. No refunds will be given where you are refused entry or ejected due to your own behaviour or your breach of these Experience Terms or the Terms and Conditions.
We, our representatives, sub-contractors, and any applicable venue operator reserve the right to conduct security searches and confiscate any item which (in our, our representatives, our sub-contractors and/or the venue operator's opinion) may cause danger or disruption to other people at the Experience.
Unless we expressly allow otherwise, you cannot use any equipment for recording or transmitting any audio, visual and/or audio-visual material at an Experience. You should not bring any such equipment to the Experience and we, our representatives, sub-contractors, and the venue operator reserve the right to confiscate any such equipment and any unauthorised recordings made using such equipment. Any recording made of any part of an Experience in breach of these Experience Terms will belong to us and you agree to assign any and all rights in any such recordings to us. Notwithstanding anything else in these Experience Terms, we will not be responsible for any loss, theft, or damage to confiscated items.
There are no smoking or illegal substances allowed within venues or Experience areas.
Strictly no containers holding wine or other alcoholic beverages can be removed from an Experience without our express approval.
You must keep valuables with you at all times whilst at an Experience.
You must comply with all instructions given to you in whatever form by us or Experience staff.
