Customers must wear fully enclosed footwear and clothing suitable for extended periods in the outdoors, e.g. wind and sun protection. A warm jacket may be necessary and is recommended in cool or cold temperatures.
Do not wear or carry loose items that can easily be lost. Our motorcycle sidecars have limited storage space that can be used to carry loose items.
We will endeavour to pick up and drop off customers at their chosen locations subject to whether a driver can access the location with the allocated motorcycle sidecar. The decision on the accessibility of a location is at the discretion of the driver. We will attempt to arrange alternative pick up or drop off points in the event of a nominated location being inaccessible. Customers should discuss the choice of pick up and drop off points with Topp Adventures prior to making a booking if there are concerns about accessibility. See Refunds – force majeure for guidance if suitable access cannot be achieved.
