  • Although the operator will attempt to solve the problem as quickly as possible, they do not compensate for: personal stress due to a mechanical breakdown, missing connecting travel arrangements, use of any other unapproved travel means or accommodation, for having missed places you wished to travel to if you are unable to extend your hire or tides do not allow.
