Terms and Conditions
All sales are final: tickets cannot be exchanged or money refunded by The Original London Sightseeing Tour (TOLST). Redress may only be given where TOLST is specifically at fault (see clause 8).
Online tickets are booked on the understanding that the ticket confirmations despatched either by “UK Post” or "International Post” or “eVoucher” are pre-paid vouchers which must be redeemed for a valid ticket to travel on arrival in London. If you select “Collect at Visitor Centre” as a delivery method you will be issued with an email confirmation which must be redeemed for a valid ticket to travel at The Original London Visitor Centre (17-19 Cockspur Street, SW1Y 5BL near Trafalgar Square). Please note that it may take up to 24 hours for your order to be processed and for you to receive your tickets, therefore we do not recommend booking your tickets online for immediate travel.
The ticket to travel is valid for use on The Original London Sightseeing Tour as a hop-on hop-off ticket for 24 hours (or 48 hours or 72 hours as may be applicable where stated) from the time and date stated on the ticket, unless otherwise specified. You must carry and be able to present when requested a valid ticket to travel on The Original Tour.

The customer must keep their ticket safe. No refunds will be made in respect of lost, destroyed or defaced tickets. Tickets are not transferable & we are unable to reprint lost or stolen tickets.
The Original London Sightseeing Tour will make every effort to maintain a regular and frequent service, but does not guarantee to do so. The Original London Sightseeing Tour shall not be in any way liable to the ticket holder for loss, damage, inconvenience or delay in consequence of any failure, alteration, suspension, cancellation or termination of service.
