How do I access my booking in the On-Tour App?

Each passenger on the booking can access the app individually. Once you have downloaded the app from either the Apple App Store or the Google Play Store, follow these steps:

  1. Open the app and enter your email address. This can be any email address. It doesn't have to be an email address provided to us as part of the booking. It's only used to send you an email with a verification link on it.
  2. Accept our 'Terms of use' and 'Privacy policy' for use of the app
  3. Once you have completed step 1 and 2, and submitted it, an email will be sent to you. It's a good idea to check your junk mail in case it ends up there.
  4. Open the email and click the link to verify your email address, you will then return to the app login screen
  5. Enter your booking reference. This is the last 7 digits of your booking confirmation for example for LTC2125/1297659 enter 1297659.
  6. Enter your first and last name as you provided to us for the booking

If you're the lead passenger on the booking, you can share this information with other people on the booking. They will need to use their own name and email address when logging into the app.
