From hassle-free flights to big comfy coaches, we'll make sure the journey is just as fun as the adventure. Ready to make a move? Let’s go.

TOPDECK COACH EVERYWHERE Consider our Topdeck coach your home away from home. With all the comforts you’ll need (minus the kitchen sink), you’ll hit the road and see the USA and Canada from the best viewpoint ever.

FLIGHTS SAN FRANCISCO & NEW YORK



As a country that’s 40 times bigger than the whole of the United Kingdom, there’s no wonder you’ll need to take to the air to get around. We’ll arrange your flights from A to B on certain trips that cover a lot of ground, and take care of your airport transfers to make life that little bit easier. You’re welcome.

METROCARDS NEW YORK CITY Roam free (and live like a local while you’re at it) with included MetroCards in New York City. The most flexible and efficient way to get to the heart of a new destination, you’ll have no problems in zipping around the Big Apple at your own leisure – even if that means spending five hours in M&M’s World.


I couldn’t have asked for anyone better. She was extremely knowledgeable.

DELICIOUS FOOD

delicious Some may bring home a tacky souvenir; others a picture-perfect postcard. But that epic feast you ate while on the trip of a lifetime? That’s a memory that will stay with you forever. Dig in!


DELICIOUS FOOD

11

CAJUN FOOD DEEP SOUTH, USA Fact: The only thing more fun than eating Cajun food is pronouncing Cajun food. Gumbo? Yes, please. Jambalaya? Sign me up. Po’ Boy sandwich? We’ll take two. Aside from the funky fresh names, these dishes are chock full of spicy, aromatic flavours and can be found in kitchens across the Deep South.

TEXAS BBQ TEXAS, USA They say everything’s bigger in Texas – and ‘they’ aren’t wrong. Each region of Texas has its own unique style of preparing beef but generally we’re talking brisket (a particular cut of meat) cooked low and slow over indirect heat, with a simple garlic + salt + pepper rub. Cue drool.

POUTINE MONTREAL, CANADA Don’t let the name deter you. This greasy plate of fast-food amazingness satisfies all our cravings. French fries. Tick. Cheese. Tick. Gravy. Tick. Bang it all together, and you’ve got a Canadian specialty that outshines Bieber.

LAS VEGAS, USA

UNIQUE EXPERIENCES INCLUDED

EXPERIENCE THE HOTTEST PARTY ON WHEELS

EXPLORE THE BRIGHT LIGHTS OF WASHINGTON D.C.



You’ve seen the films and heard the legendary stories but now’s your chance to take on the night, Vegas style. Hop aboard the bus with your new BFFs (and BYO beverages) and discover exactly why The Strip is on the top of every party animal’s hit list. Just avoid the face tattoos.

With its grand monuments and plethora of museums, Washington D.C. is where history and politics artfully collide with modern culture. Be treated to a show as you take an evening tour with your Topdeck Trip Leader and admire the city’s landmarks illuminated in all their glory. Cue Snapchat Stories and Instagrams galore. WASHINGTON D.C, USA

EAT YOUR WAY AROUND NYC Don’t let the name, ‘Big Apple’ fool you. This city is so much more than lunchbox fruit. Sample some of the treats Manhattan has on offer while being guided around by an expert, and discover exactly why New York cheesecake/pizza/hot dogs/bagels are just the beginning. Stretchy pants optional.

GLIDE THROUGH THE EVERGLADES

UNIQUE EXPERIENCES

FLORIDA, USA

Take a bite (pun intended) out of this remarkable piece of American wilderness as you zip and zoom over the grassy river and dodge the beady eyes of the true locals of Florida (yep, we’re talking ‘gators). Hot, steamy and lightly seasoned with adventure, this not-to-be-missed experience is for ecolovers and thrill seekers alike.

INCLUDED



CHICAGO, USA

INCLUDED

GRAND CANYON, USA

OPTIONAL

ALBUQUERQUE, USA

Get high in Chicago Afraid of heights? There’s no time for that. Zoom to the top of the 360 Chicago Observation Deck and take on the city from a whole new perspective. If 94 floors isn’t enough to raise your arm hairs, TILT yourself over the city’s magnificent skyline with the building’s newest viewing experience.

JUMP ON A HELI-TOUR Is it a bird? Is it a plane? Nup, it’s a Topdecker taking to the skies to view some of America’s best cities from above. Get to the chopper and see places like Vegas and Chi-town sparkle. Plus, you get to sport a funky fresh headset that plays music whilst you soar over the Grand Canyon (think: epic Jurassic Park-style soundtrack).

FLOAT AWAY ON A HOT AIR BALLOON RIDE There are only two things that justify an early start: a free hostel breakfast and a jaw-droppingly gorgeous hot air balloon ride. Opt for the latter in Albuquerque, New Mexico and float serenely over the southwestern vistas as the sun rises. Wash down the excitement with a mimosa after landing.

OPTIONAL

Explore

MONUMENT VALLEY WITH A LOCAL NAVAJO GUIDE

MONUMENT VALLEY, USA

INCLUDED

Ain’t no better way to get to the heart of a place than with a tour from someone who knows it best: a local. Jump in a Jeep and explore the breathtaking scapes of Monument Valley with a knowledgeable Navajo guide, before tucking into a traditional Navajo lunch to feed the soul.


FREEDOM TO EXPLORE

14

freedom to Put down the itinerary, stray from the crowd and make good use of your spare time with some of these not-to-be-missed experiences. Freedom never felt so good.

EXPLORE THE NATIONAL PARKS EVERYWHERE, USA & CANADA

CHECK OUT A SEASONAL SPORTING EVENT EVERYWHERE, USA

Not sure what NP is your vibe? Don’t worry, we got you. Strap on your hiking shoes and hit up Yosemite, Yellowstone or the monstrous Grand Canyon. With loads of free time to solo explore, the hardest part will be tearing yourself away from the jaw-dropping views.

Cue the KISSCAM, Topdeckers. There’s no place like the U-S-of-YAY to channel your team spirit at an all American sporting game. From baseball to basketball and every action-packed event in between, you’re sure to catch a winner.

GET JAZZY IN THE FRENCH QUARTER NEW ORLEANS, USA The streets are alive with the sound of jazz in the French Quarter – aka New Orleans' beating heart and buzzing epicentre of all things food, fun and frivolity. With bars, restaurants, street performers and even an alligator museum (yep), it’s time to let loose and embrace the crazy.

Wake early and fuel up on breakfast before heading out for a morning of reflection. Today we’re off to Pearl Harbour and the Arizona Memorial to browse the comprehensive museum and learn the history of "the date that will live in infamy". Post-history lesson and perusal of the historic site, make tracks back to Waikiki where you can spend the day hanging ten in the waves, hanging out at the shops or hanging poolside at the hotel. Your choice. (B) DAY 3 HONOLULU. Are you a surfing pro, or a total beginner? Either way, the option is all yours today to take on the waves of this surfer’s paradise. If you’re more of a land lover, hike your own way to the top of Diamond Head for out-of-this-world views. Or alternatively, dig your heels into the powder-white sand of Waikiki beach and let the Hawaiian sun warm your bones. (B)

DAY 1 LOS ANGELES, CALIFORNIA TO LAS VEGAS, NEVADA. Assemble the wolf pack as we drive across the Mojave desert to our first stop in Las Vegas. Postcards home write of buffets, blackjack and the Bellagio, but few mention the ridiculous antics you can only get up to in Sin City. Offering fancier than normal pools, 5am burgers in your hotel and party buses – this is Vegas as you’ve dreamt it. Hit The Strip aboard our party bus and let Vegas show you its colours. (D) DAY 2 LAS VEGAS, NEVADA. G-rated Vegas sounds like an oxymoron, but there's plenty of family-friendly options from indoor skydiving to roller coasters atop needle-pin buildings. Take the option to make like Godzilla with a helicopter flight above The Strip, or recline in your seat as you watch the world go by from the Observation Wheel. DAY 3 LAS VEGAS (DAY TRIP TO GRAND CANYON). Stay by the pool or live large—your choice, but a day trip to the Grand Canyon is included today. The jaw-dropping view around the canyon rim or from the (optional) chopper is well worth the journey along Route 66. DAY 4 LAS VEGAS TO YOSEMITE NATIONAL PARK REGION, CALIFORNIA. Lost track of time last night? Swap stories of your Vegas antics as we drive from the desert to the Sierra Nevada Mountains (and our gateway to Yosemite National Park). DAY 5 YOSEMITE NATIONAL PARK. There aren’t enough flowery adjectives to describe the beauty of Yosemite Valley. It doesn't have honey badgers, but it does have bears, coyotes and golden eagles that are badass in their own right. Hike to Vernal Falls, ride or take the free shuttle to explore the real-world equivalent of Narnia. There’s always the Ansel Adams Gallery if you need photography pointers. (B)

DAY 1 NEW YORK CITY, NEW YORK TO WASHINGTON, D.C, VIA PHILADELPHIA, PENNSYLVANIA. All great adventures start in New York, and today is no exception to the rule. Meet with the gang bright and early before we hit the road to meet with the city of Philadelphia. Note: cheesesteak recommended. Tonight, see Washington all lit up on an illumination tour and make the most of your night with a chance to bond with the crew over dinner. (D) DAY 2 WASHINGTON, D.C. Roam free with a day in the land of memorials, museums and monuments. Speed demons could see the city by segway or bike, or take your time with a leisurely stroll. How you spend the day is totally up to you. (B) DAY 3 WASHINGTON, D.C. TO WILMINGTON, NORTH CAROLINA. Swap the capital for pretty beaches. We’ll see the historic side of Downtown Wilmington too. (B,D) DAY 4 WILMINGTON TO SAVANNAH, GEORGIA VIA CHARLESTON, SOUTH CAROLINA. Sample the charm of Charleston, then ready yourself for tonight’s optional ghost tour (if you dare). (B) DAY 5 SAVANNAH. You’re free to recreate that ‘life is like a box of chocolates’ scene on Forrest Gump’s bench, or really slow the pace with a Slow Ride bike crawl. (B) DAY 6 SAVANNAH TO ORLANDO, FLORIDA. Roll into Orlando today, where there’s year-round sunshine and a certain friendly mouse reigns supreme. (B) DAY 7 ORLANDO. Act like the big kid you really are and forget about that thing they call ‘adulting’ today. Spend the day with the characters you loved as a kid at Walt Disney World or for the thrill seeking option make sure you check out Universal Studios to unleash your inner movie buff. The choice yours. Note: popcorn and souvenirs are essential. (B)

Tonight, hit up Gaslamp Quarter or seek out rooftop bars for cocktails with a view. (D) DAY 2 SAN DIEGO. We suggest you keep today classy with a ride on a historic trolley, a jaunt through the Spanish-style Balboa Park and a visit to San Diego Zoo (one word: pandas). Or just get in on the sun and surf action along the 70 miles of beaches. (B) DAY 3 SAN DIEGO TO PRESCOTT, ARIZONA. Drive through the Joshua Tree-dotted landscape of the Mojave desert to Prescott, where cowboy hats are part of the local’s uniform and Whiskey Row is the place to be. (B) DAY 4 PRESCOTT TO GRAND CANYON REGION VIA SEDONA. Stretch your legs in Arizona’s ‘little Hollywood’, Sedona—a spiritual mecca in the desert. Say a few ‘oms’ amongst the red sandstone on the optional jeep tour before we travel towards the Grand Canyon. (B,D) DAY 5 GRAND CANYON. Ready to ‘go big or go home’? With a day at the Grand Canyon you can see billions of years of rock history from every angle, including a 360-degree panorama if you take the optional chopper. (B) DAY 6 GRAND CANYON TO ZION NATIONAL PARK REGION, UTAH. Urban hippies, rejoice! The Cameron Native American Trading Post on our way will soothe twitching shopping withdrawals. Millions-year-old sweeping sandstone canyons, iridescent waterfalls and breathtaking landscapes await in Zion tomorrow. (B,D) DAY 7 ZION NATIONAL PARK TO LAS VEGAS, NEVADA. Strap on your hiking boots and challenge yourself to reach Angel's Landing. The views are so worth it. Then: a tour of The Strip in Vegas, a nightclub on wheels (and pockets full of casino chips?).

We’ll have one last hurrah with a day stop at Niagara Falls and a Voyage to the Falls boat trip before we’re off to the land of all things supersized. (B) DAY 4 DETROIT TO CHICAGO, ILLINOIS. Home to impressive architecture and a great night out, you won’t be bored in Chicago. For a hair-raising experience, we reach new heights together at Chicago’s most thrilling attraction – entry to the 360 Chicago Tower and included TILT experience. (B,D) DAY 5 CHICAGO. Have you been blown away by the Windy City yet? Today, take your pick of a jet boat experience, Chicago city architecture cruise, or a helicopter flight. While you’re in explorer mode, check out the Bean, or watch the Cubs in action at Wrigley Field. And, GO! (B) DAY 6 CHICAGO TO CLEVELAND, OHIO. Hang on to your horse and buggy, we're in Amish country! We’re welcomed to the simple life before it’s off to Cleveland – home to all things rock and roll (and you’ll find out why with an included tour of the Rock & Roll Hall of Fame).

Lucky the sun barely dips below the horizon at this time of year – there’s almost 24 hours worth of daylight and you’re gonna need it to explore as much of the Denali National Park as possible. See it all on a wildlife driving tour and spot grizzly bears, moose, dall sheep and more. (B) DAY 4 DENALI TO TANGLE LAKES. Today we’re heading to Tangle Lakes for another dose of the wilderness. In the afternoon, why not jump into one of the lake’s canoes and paddle your way around – 10 points if you spot a beaver. (B,D) DAY 5 TANGLE LAKES TO WRANGELL ST ELIAS NATIONAL PARK.

DAY 10 LAKE TAHOE. FYI: Lake Tahoe is one of the sunniest places on earth with an average of 300 clear days and upwards of 12 metres of snow every year. (B) DAY 11 LAKE TAHOE. A journey within Lake Tahoe means a journey through some of the region's best slopes and the best nightlife with options ranging from hot chocolate to nightclubs. (B,D) DAY 12 LAKE TAHOE TO SAN FRANCISCO. Welcome to San Fran where the streets are almost vertical and the Painted Ladies are the talk of the town. (B,D) DAY 13 SAN FRANCISCO. Think: seafood chowder, Lombard Street, Pier 39, Alcatraz, Chinatown and more. (B)

DAY 5 GRAND CANYON. Fact: nothing will prepare you for your first ‘wow’ moment at the Grand Canyon. (B)

DAY 14 SAN FRANCISCO TO VANCOUVER, BRITISH COLUMBIA. We’re outta here after breakfast and off to Vancity. (B)

DAY 7 ZION NATIONAL PARK TO LAS VEGAS, NEVADA. See what Zion NP is all about before we roll into Las Vegas. First stop: a nightclub on wheels. (B)

DAY 16 WHISTLER. Welcome to the holy grail of ski resorts. You’ve got two days to show the slopes who’s boss. (B)

DAY 8 LAS VEGAS. This is Vegas, baby. Make your way around the world and tick off the Eiffel Tower, Statue of Liberty and Pyramids of Giza without leaving The Strip.

DAY 17 WHISTLER. Eat. Sleep. Ski. Repeat. Or, take it easy and soak up the après vibes or strap on your walking shoes and wander the ski village or scenic mountains for a gentle hike. (B)

DAY 9 LAS VEGAS TO LAKE TAHOE, CALIFORNIA. Wave goodbye to skyscrapers for some fresh powder action in the Sierra Nevada Mountains, straddled across the border of California and Nevada. If you’re a snow-beginner, take the option for a few lessons and you’ll be a pro in no time. (D)

DAY 18 WHISTLER TO KELOWNA. From white, we go green with a scenic route through Fraser Valley, before climbing the Coquihalla Pass and dropping into British Columbia’s biggest wine region, Kelowna. (B,D) DAYS 19 KELOWNA (BIG WHITE DAY TRIP). Big White is a big deal. There are snowmobile tours, tubing and ice skating, not to mention the skiing and snowboarding.

DAYS 20 KELOWNA (BIG WHITE DAY TRIP). Today, we make the journey back up to Big White for another round of flawless pow. Need a confidence boost? Take the optional ski or snowboard lessons and you’ll be shredding like a pro in no time. (B) DAY 21 KELOWNA TO BANFF, ALBERTA. Straddle the Continental Divide as you saddle up for Kicking Horse Pass, before a pitstop at Lake Louise. Think soaring, glacier-clad peaks and stunning ice statues. (B,D) DAY 22 BANFF. New to the powder? Ready for a few more lessons to learn the slopes. Ready to ride? Three world-class ski resorts are yours to pick from. Then again, you could get some canine friends to do the hard work and see Banff by dogsled. (B) DAY 23 BANFF. Go at your own pace today before resting those muscles at tonight’s included trip to the hot springs. #Bliss. (B,D) DAY 24 BANFF (SHUTTLE TO CALGARY AVAILABLE). After breakfast, take your last look at the Rocky Mountain-dominated skyline and put away your thermals, the time has come to bid farewell to your crew.

New York City

CLOCKWISE FROM TOP LEFT: NEW YORK CITY

DAY 1 NEW YORK CITY, NEW YORK. You’ve seen it in the movies; you’ve read about all the icons; b ­ ut nothing compares to actually experiencing New York City for yourself. Take a minute and prep yourself for the totally awesome adventure you’re about to embark on. Tonight, meet with the group at the welcome meeting and get ready to set food in the concrete jungle. DAY 2 NEW YORK CITY. There's more than a few reasons why 52 million visitors infiltrate the island of Manhattan each year and you're in the best position to find out what they are. Be warned: once you taste the Big Apple, you may be ruined for any other city for life. See all the super-sized skyscrapers and from an altogether different angle at the One World Tower and for the foodies – we’ve got a Manhattan food tour to satisfy your hunger for local fare. The rest of the day is yours to explore with an included 7-day Metro Pass. (B,L) DAY 3 NEW YORK CITY. Riding the subway and wandering your way around the wildly different neighbourhoods of the city is a great way to see the place – the yellow cabs whizz by, the smell of the sidewalk pretzel stands waft your way and the whole place feels like one big movie set. Or, you can roll in style and cruise on an optional bike tour to capture a few #selfies at one of the most iconic parks in the world. (B,D) DAY 4 NEW YORK CITY. There will be tear-stains on your I Heart NYC T-shirt today as our trip wraps after breakfast. Spend your last New York minutes (or hours, depending on your flight) reenacting scenes from your favourite shows or drowning your sorrows in cronuts. Then again, you’ve got three days left on that metro pass… (B) This is a section of the 13 Day Star Spangled Banner trip and 11 Day Manhattan to Miami trip. See full trips on p.56 and p.54. Please refer to our website for more details on inclusions as these may vary per departure.

A contract between you and us (or between you and the relevant operator of a Locally Operated Trip) will exist as soon as (i); we issue an invoice in response to your request for a booking and (ii); your deposit is paid to us or your travel agent. If your booking is made through a travel agent, we will address all correspondence to that agent.

Topdeck will not be liable where any failure in the performance or provision of your trip is due to: (a) your acts or omissions or the acts or omissions of another member in your group (b) any third party not connected with the provision of your travel arrangements (c) unusual or unforeseeable circumstances beyond our control, the consequences of which could not have been avoided even if all due care had been exercised or (d) an event which we or a travel service provider, even with all due care, could not foresee or forestall (including but not limited to Force Majeure and unavoidable technical problems with transport and similar events).

TRAVEL DOCUMENTS Please ensure you carefully read your invoice, tickets and all other documents we send to you as soon as you receive them and contact us or your travel agent immediately if any information appears to be incorrect. We will not accept any liability if you fail to notify us of any inaccuracy in any document within 14 days of us sending them to you or the travel agent. You are responsible for ensuring that you have the correct and valid travel documents including passports, visas and vaccination certificates. We strongly recommend that you verify current documentation requirements with your travel agent or us. Please note requirements change and you must check with your consulate for the most up to date information, including but not limited to visa requirements for the countries visited on your trip. Passports must have an expiry date of at least six months after completion of the trip. IF YOU CHANGE OR CANCEL YOUR BOOKING If you want to change or cancel any aspect of your booking including but not limited to a change to a trip of shorter duration or different departure date you must notify us in writing. We will do our best to accommodate your requested change but it may not always be possible. We will not charge a fee for changes requested more than 42 days before departure except where we incur a cost from a supplier, in which case we will advise you of the relevant fee. All change/cancellation fees must be paid within seven days of the invoice date or on the date of departure, whichever is the sooner. Cancellation of Open Dated Passes before booking a departure date incur a $200 cancellation charge. Once your chosen departure date is booked our standard cancellation charges listed above will apply. If you are prevented from traveling as a result of illness, death of an immediate family member, jury service, or other reason beyond your control which we consider significant, we may agree to your booking being transferred to another person who satisfies all the conditions applicable to the trip, subject to you and the other person accepting liability for full payment of the trip cost and any additional costs arising from the transfer and provided that you give us not less than 21 days' written notice of the proposed transfer. CANCELLATION OR MODIFICATION BY US Every effort will be made to operate all trips as advertised but it must be remembered that our trips are planned up to eighteen months in advance. We may therefore, at our discretion, modify or cancel any trip, accommodation or arrangement at any time. We will notify you as soon as possible of any changes and they will form part of our contract with you. In the case of any material modification or cancellation, we will, if possible, provide you with three alternatives: (1) a trip of an equivalent or closely similar standard and price, if available; or (2) a trip of a lower standard together with a refund of the difference in price; or (3) cancellation with a full refund of all monies paid. A material modification is one that has a serious impact on your trip and includes a change of departure date, departure point or airport, or change of departure time of more than twelve hours, which would cause substantial inconvenience to you. A change of accommodation, or transport method/style is not a material modification. We may alter or substitute the type or size of vehicle, or method/style of transport mentioned in the brochure, depending on the

Save where the provisions of Force Majeure apply, if the trip does not materially comply with the description in the brochure, Topdeck may compensate you to a maximum value equal to the price of the trip. Topdeck will only be liable to pay the maximum amount of compensation where there has been a total failure of consideration for your payment.

Our liability will in all cases be limited in accordance with and/or in an identical manner to any applicable international conventions, including but not limited to the Geneva Convention in respect of carriage by road, the Montreal Convention in respect of travel by air, the Athens Convention in respect of travel by sea, the Berne Convention in respect of travel by rail and the Paris Convention in respect of the provision of accommodation which set time limits for notifications/claims and limit the amount of compensation that can be claimed for death, injury, delay to passengers/guests and loss, damage and delay to luggage. We will not be responsible for any loss or damage sustained by you as a result of a contravention of any law or regulation of any of the countries visited while on the trip. OUR LIABILITY TO YOU FOR LOCALLY OPERATED TRIPS If your trip is a Locally Operated Trip as listed above our obligation to you is to (and you expressly authorise us to) make trip bookings on your behalf with reasonable skill and care and to arrange a contract between you and the relevant operator. We exercise care in the selection of reputable local operators but we have no control over, or liability for, the services provided by third parties. All bookings are made on your behalf subject to the terms and conditions, including conditions of carriage and limitations of liability, imposed by the local operator (available on request). Your legal rights in connection with such trips are against the local operator and are not against us, except to the extent a problem is caused by fault on our part. SEATBELTS You must wear a seatbelt at all times whilst you are in any vehicle. Neither Topdeck nor any local operator will be liable for any injury, death or claim howsoever arising from any accident if you have failed to comply with this requirement. FLEXIBILITY DURING TRIP Your booking is accepted on the condition that you understand, and take responsibility for, the risks inherent in adventure travel. Every effort will be made to operate all trips featured in this brochure but there may be a necessity to vary the itinerary from that stated in the brochure, and delays may occur for a variety of reasons beyond our control. The need for a flexible attitude to this type of travel is important. All decisions relating to a trip itinerary will be taken by the Trip Leader, as appointed by us in the interest of the group as a whole. Please note that due to public holidays some sights or activities may not be available on a particular trip. No refund will be made for services made available by Topdeck but which for whatever reason are not used by you once the trip has departed. OPTIONAL ACTIVITIES AND EXCURSIONS Topdeck and its employees, agents and contractors make no representation or warranty in relation to implied or explicit suggestions or recommendations of services, activities and events not highlighted as included in a trip. You are responsible for all risks associated with the transportation to/from, and your participation in, or visitation to, any place, activity or excursion not listed as an inclusion. During your trip you will be offered the chance to purchase various optional excursions and activities. Topdeck does not own, operate or control any of the companies or individuals which provide the optional activities or excursions. Some of the optional activities and excursions, such as canyoning, are inherently dangerous and risky. If you want to take part in such optional activities or excursions you must be fit enough to do so and must follow all reasonable instructions. The standards of health and safety which will be adopted by the company or the individual providing the optional activity or excursion will be those of the country where the optional activity or excursion takes place. Please note that these standards may not be the same as you would find in your home country. If you wish to book any optional excursion or activity, you may do so subject to the operator’s terms and conditions. Your contract will be with the operator of the activity or excursion and will be governed by local law. Topdeck acts only as their agent. Topdeck’s Trip Leader will have further details and additional information can be found on our website. Topdeck accepts no liability for any act or omission of any operator or operator’s employees, agents or sub-contractors. EXCLUSION OF LIABILITY – FORCE MAJEURE We do not accept liability for any loss, damage or expense resulting from war or terrorist activities threatened or actual, civil unrest, industrial action threatened or actual, weather conditions, fire, flood, drought, closures, unforeseen alterations to public transport schedules, rescheduling of aircraft or

DIETARY, HEALTH AND SPECIAL REQUIREMENT

If you have a medical condition or require special arrangements that may affect your trip, we ask that you inform us in writing at the time of booking. If we cannot reasonably accommodate your particular needs we may decline the booking or ask for you to be accompanied by a person who is able to provide full assistance to you throughout your trip. YOUR LIABILITY TO US You will not be permitted to embark or continue on the trip if your mental or physical condition is, in the reasonable opinion of any representative of Topdeck, such as to render you incapable of caring for yourself, or where you become objectionable to other passengers, or you become a hazard to yourself or other passengers. We will not be responsible for expenses resulting in you being precluded from completing the trip for any reason, nor will we refund you any part of your trip cost. In all cases we will notify you of the reasons why we have taken this action. We will have no obligation to arrange for your return to the point of the trip departure if your condition manifests itself after the trip departure. Further, if the trip involves travel by air, the captain of your aircraft can refuse to allow you to fly on the aircraft if he believes that you could be dangerous or disruptive to other passengers on the flight. You indemnify us against all third-party actions taken against us for loss or damage caused by you or arising from your participation on the trip. INSURANCE & CLAIMS You must take out comprehensive travel insurance before you travel on your trip. Your insurance protection must include cover for cancellation, medical and repatriation expenses, personal injury and accident, death, and loss of personal baggage and money and personal liability insurance. Evidence of such insurances must be produced to Topdeck on request and normally on day one of your trip. Insurance cover offered by credit card companies or reciprocal medical cover agreements are often not comprehensive. If you make a claim against Topdeck you agree to assign to us or our insurers any rights to take action against any third party supplier/tour operator or any other person or party that may have been wholly or partly responsible for the claim or who Topdeck reasonably considers should be a party to the action. You must co-operate fully with Topdeck should Topdeck or its insurers wish to enforce those rights which have been assigned to Topdeck. If you make a claim against us which is covered by your insurance policy, you agree to pursue the claim through your insurer either in addition to, or in substitution for, your claim against us (if any). We agree to indemnify you in respect of reasonable expenses incurred in successfully pursuing such a claim and acknowledge that any settlement made by the insurer shall not prejudice your rights against us. COMPLAINTS In the event of any dissatisfaction with the accommodation or any other service provided by Topdeck, you must report it immediately to the Trip Leader so that action can be taken to remedy the problem. Failure to immediately notify the Trip Leader of any problem may result in your claim for compensation from us being denied or reduced. Any complaint made to Topdeck following the conclusion of the trip should be made in writing within 28 days of completion of the trip. In the event that you do not notify us in writing within 28 days, Topdeck’s ability to investigate the complaint may be prejudiced. In the UK, we can also offer you ABTA’s scheme for the resolution of disputes which is approved by the Chartered Trading Standards Institute. If we can’t resolve your complaint, go to www.abta.com to use ABTA’s simple procedure. Further information on the Code and ABTA’s assistance in resolving disputes can be found on www.abta.com. DATA PROTECTION We are committed to protecting your personal information and agree to process your personal information in accordance with our Privacy Notice, which is available online at www.topdeck.travel/privacy. In order to make your booking and ensure that your travel arrangements run smoothly, we need to use the information you provide and pass it on to other relevant suppliers who are responsible for parts of your travel arrangements. In many cases this will include transferring your data to overseas recipients (including to recipients outside of the European Union). In making this booking, your consent to this information being passed on to the relevant persons is deemed to be given unless you object and advise Topdeck of your objection at the time of booking. The information may also be provided to public authorities such as customs or immigration if required by them, or as required by law. This consent applies to any sensitive information that you give to us such as details of any disabilities or dietary/religious requirements. SMOKING Topdeck enforces a non-smoking policy on our coaches (although we make frequent stops for breaks) and in most of our accommodation. LUGGAGE There are strict weight limits for coaches when fully loaded. You are only entitled to have one piece of main luggage of standard size (see the pre-departure information or our website for size limits) and not weighing more than 20kg (or 15kg for Outback trips). In addition you may bring a sleeping bag, as required on specific trips, and a daypack. PUBLISHING CONSENT You acknowledge and agree that future Topdeck advertising and publicity material may include statements made by passengers, or their photographs, and you consent to such use of your comments or photographic/video likeness. WI-FI Topdeck will endeavor to deliver Wi-Fi connection as stated on relevant trips to the best of its ability. This service is subject to availability and may not be available on some peak season departures or in the event of technical issues.
