  9. Liability:
    MCT is pleased to accept full responsibility for arranging with reasonable skill and attention any excursion booked with it. However, it is not possible for MST to be responsible for the day to day running of the various hotels, hostels, youth centres supplied, or the various airlines, ferries, trains and coaches, or any other service not directly under the control of MCT. Accordingly, MCT wishes to make it quite clear that it will not in any circumstances be responsible for any additional expense, distress, disappointment, loss, damage, injury, accident, delay, inconvenience, or irregularity resulting from or attributable to the act or default of any company, firm or persons in connection with the carrying out of such arrangements or bookings or the conveyance of any client. Every booking is accepted subject to the conditions imposed by the air, shipping, rail, coach, hotel, hostel, campsite, restaurant, insurance and other companies, firms or persons concerned with the excursion or any claim with respect to such matters must be made against the appropriate principal.
  10. Arbitration:
    If any question of difference shall arise between the customer and MCT regarding this contract or by the construction thereof, the same shall be referred to the award and final determination of an Arbitrator to be agreed upon by the customer and a panel of not less than ten practicing solicitors of more than seven years standing, nominated by MCT’s Legal Advisors, such arbitrators to have all the powers of Arbitration arising under the provisions of the Arbitration Acts. Such Arbitration must take place prior to any legal proceeding issued unless the right to Arbitrate is waived by MCT. The venue for such Arbitration shall be Dublin and the appropriate law shall be Irish Law. At any such Arbitration, the customer shall admit into evidence the written statement of any agent, representative, courier, hotelier, or other like the person for the purpose of proving matters of fact. This clause is specifically intended to minimise the cost of Arbitration.
