We act as an agent
for the carriers and /or the hotel proprietors and /or all other
contractors whose services are employed and therefore, although every
possible care is exercised in their selection, Continental Tours accept
no liability for any loss, injury, damage, delay, change of schedule,

- Other hotel guests:
Many hotels, especially in cities and
major resorts, accommodate conventions and conferences. Also, at certain
times of the year, some destinations have an influx of groups such as
students, associations or clubs. The hotels we feature are shared with
guests from many countries with different cultures and customs. We are
therefore unable to accept any responsibility for any inconvenience
caused by such groups or their activities.
- If you have a complaint while you are on holiday:
If you have a complaint while on
holiday, you must bring it to the attention of your Continental Tours
representative and the hotel immediately. They will do their best to
rectify the situation. It is unreasonable to take no action while on
holiday, but then to write a letter of complaint upon your return. If
you do not raise concerns immediately, this may affect our ability to
investigate and take remedial action and it may impact on the way your
complaint is handled.
Our aim at Continental Tours is to

striving to improve the standard of our services. Only with the help of
your feedback will we be able to achieve our aim.
We would therefore appreciate it if you would spend a few moments to
complete and return the questionnaire being sent to you following the
completion of your vacation. We also welcome any comments, suggestions
or testimonial you wish to send to us by email.
