We are more than happy to assist with organising taxis and transfers before and after your tour but it is the client's responsibility to ensure sufficient information and transfer time before your flight.
HEALTH and FITNESS
Most tours are active holidays, and require at least moderate fitness levels according to description. Tours may involve 4 - 6 hours walking, or 3 - 5 hours cycling a day. Checking the suitability of each tour can help you to avoid disappointment. Those unaccustomed to activity are advised to take gentle exercise before the tour to fully enjoy the experience. We suggest you talk to your doctor before you start any exercise program. Please advise us when booking of any special medical, physical, or health requirements you may have, or conditions such as diabetes, epilepsy, asthma, disabilities, severe allergies, etc. and any medication you may be on.

We provide public liability for guests on our tours, however, we require you to purchase full health insurance, including coverage for repatriation. Please provide us with an indication that you have purchased this insurance at the time full payment is made. You can purchase this insurance from your travel agent.
Connemara Adventure Tours act as agents for the traveller and can accept no responsibility for the service of any hotel, restaurant or carrier used in connection with these tours, nor any liability for claims, damages, expenses or other financial loss to persons or property. In the event that it becomes necessary or advisable Connemara Adventure Tours reserves the right to alter a tour should weather, client’s preference, or other circumstances intervene. The right is reserved to cancel a tour and to decline to accept any person as a member of a tour at any time.
The tours in our website have been designed to provide participants with exposure to the true nature of the environment visited and therefore involve an element of personal risk and exposure to potential hazards above those associated with normal 'package holidays'. Bookings are accepted on the understanding that such risks are appreciated by the client.

It is expected that individuals participating in a self-guided cycling programme have a general knowledge of the function of bicycles, i.e. how to change gears, how to brake properly, replacing a slipped chain, fixe a puncture or change a tube in the event of a flat tyre. EACH call out for assistance in the event of a minor problem (e.g. flat tyre) will incur a charge of €70.00. This charge will also apply for unscheduled transfers. Breakdown cover is included in your package only in the event of a serious bike fault such as broken spokes. We will endeavour to get to you as soon as possible, but you may have to wait between 1 and 2 hours for this service.
I agree with the above breakdown service policy and authorise Connemara Adventure Tours to charge my credit card for call out fee of €70.00* in the event that I request the service.* This charge of €70.00 per call out, will only be incurred in the event of a call out service request by you.
