Tates Coaches accepts responsibility for those arrangements for your holiday which are wholly within our control & therefore accepts liability to clients for the negligence of our servants or employees. We make every effort to ensure proper arrangements have been made for all holidays advertised in the brochure & that suppliers of the services which you will enjoy during your holiday are efficient and reputable. However, we do not have direct control over the provision of such services by those suppliers & so cannot accept liability for any loss arising from actions or omissions of such suppliers who are not our servants or agents.

Luggage must be restricted to one medium size suitcase (15 kilos) per person. We reserve the right to refuse to carry overweight luggage. Whilst every care will be taken with passenger's possessions, the company cannot accept liability for luggage or personal items left in the coach.
