BucketmyList is unable to move passengers booked as part of a triple/quad into single or double rooms or into larger rooms to accommodate separate bedding needs. We're happy to inform the hotels of any special requests, such as "king bed", "lower floor", etc., provided we are advised at time of booking. Such requests cannot be guaranteed as availability is often limited.  We reserve the right, for technical reasons, in cases of force majeure or actions by third parties, to replace the planned hotel with accommodation of the same category offering equivalent services.  This would only be in exceptional circumstances and in such cases we will inform you as soon as we are aware of this necessity.

In the early or late season some activities may not be available, some of the facilities (restaurant, swimming pool, etc.) may be closed, or maintenance work may be in progress.  As a general rule, entertainment and sports activities may vary in frequency depending on how many people are staying at the time and on climatic conditions.  Particularly during the high season it is possible that the number of parasols, loungers, sports equipment, etc., is insufficient for the demand.  The opening hours of bars, restaurants, and clubs, etc., may be irregular and dependent on the management of the establishment in question.  You agree that BucketmyList is not liable for activities unavailable due to any of the reasons listed above.

Similarly these activities may be withdrawn at the discretion of the organizer if there is insufficient demand. This will not give rise to any entitlement to compensation.

You acknowledge that the use or enjoyment of an activity may be hazardous and inherently risky, and, to the maximum extent permitted by law. BucketmyList shall have no liability for any personal injury or death; lost, stolen, damaged or destroyed property; or other liability arising out of or in connection with the use and operation of the activity, and all actions or events occurring prior to, during, at or after, the activity.
