Any cars found not to have a valid pass displayed will be fined; there are several signs on the premises also reminding guests of this. Should anyone wish to dispute a fine they must contact Armtrac directly and not the hotel.
Please inform your guests prior to arrival of these terms and conditions, on some large events with over 50 guests The Headland may ask for Armtrac not to patrol the car park, however please contact the events team to confirm this.
