Cancellation by you or any member of your group due to having or being effected by illness, including these listed above, will still follow the below cancellation terms.
Your booking usually prevents others from booking at a specific time on a specific date and is therefore subject to a recognised cancellation policy for sporting activity bookings, which is in line with Regulation 6 within the Distance Selling Regulations issued by the Office of Fair Trading. This means that, once the booking is in place, your right to cancel without penalty ends:
Booking taken:- Loss of deposit
More than 31 days prior to booked date:- Full refund less deposit.
31 days or less prior to booked date:- No refund.
Our accepted date of cancellation is when your written cancellation is acknowledged in writing by us. Email: email@example.com, or post to address below. If catering or any other supply is included in the package, this may also be subject to cancellation charges.The 31day rule includes weekends and bank holidays.Any reduction in numbers must also in writing and acknowledged in writing by us to be considered valid. Any changes in participant numbers are subject to the same cancellation charges as stated above. Verbal changes and cancellations are not accepted in any circumstances.
Sky Diving, Hot Air Ballooning, Flights
The activities listed above are heavily dependent on weather conditions. Once booked, they are non refundable and non transferable.
If the activity is cancelled due to unsafe weather conditions, this may be last minute at the instructors discretion. Should this occur, then your experience will be put on hold and can be booked in for a convenient future date.
In the event of a flight being cancelled due to adverse weather conditions, or for any other reason, the current range of alternative dates will be available on enquiry to the booking office or on the company website(s). Please note that there are no refunds available.
Customers can select the Flexi Date option at the time of booking. Flexi Date allows the booker the option to reschedule their current booked event date to a new future date, if they can no longer attend the original day.
You will have up until 2 weeks prior to the event date to notify us in writing to reschedule, and provide the new date. Rescheduled events will be required to remain at the same location that was originally selected and the future date will be subject to availability for that newly selected date and time. No refund will be provided if your newly requested date and time are not available, new dates will need to be provided.
A booking can only be rescheduled once with a Flexi Date payment. Bookings can not be rescheduled within the 2 weeks (14 day) period prior to the original event date.
If Flexi-Date has not been selected at checkout and you are requesting to reschedule a date:
This can only be considered up until 14 days prior to the event date and will need confirming with instructors.
If the reschedule is possible, this will incur a date rescheduling fee of GBP 40.00
SPECIAL BOOKING CONDITIONS FOR ZORBING, RALLY DRIVING /HIGH PERFORMANCE CARS
In the case of a booking for sphering (zorbing), rally driving or any event that includes driving any type of high performance car, full payment is required on booking and no refunds are given. In the case of high performance cars, you may re-schedule your date, subject to availability, up to 21 days prior to the event. The admin fee to do this is £30 per booking.
BAD WEATHER / OTHER UNAVOIDABLE CIRCUMSTANCES
If an activity is cancelled due to bad weather or any other unavoidable circumstances by the venue, including government restrictions, your booking will be rescheduled to a mutually convenient date for you and the venue. You can chose a date up to three months after the original booked date. Bookings for a venue where the supplier is still able to and prepared to run the session, will not be eligible for re-scheduling. In these circumstances, a customer’s decision not to take part it is deemed that the booking has been cancelled and charges as stated will apply. Refunds are not applicable.
Discounted bookings for large groups are priced on the number of participants. Any reduction in group size will result in re-pricing.If the reduction causes your group numbers to fall below the minimum requirement, the price for the minimum number will be charged regardless of attendees. In addition to the re-pricing, cancellation charges apply to each person that is cancelled in a group booking. A group that does not qualify for a discount at the time of booking, cannot acquire a discounted status by the addition of extra participants at a later date. A booked 'team' classified event can add further teams to their booking subject to availability but team sizes cannot be increased at a later date. If a reduction in a group size results in the venue cancelling your event you will still be subject to cancellation charges.
You must be ready to take part in your booked activity 30 minutes prior to a designated 'start-time' to enable a full safety briefing to take place, unless advised otherwise on your booking confirmation. The time stated on your confirmation is the start time not arrival time. Some venues ask for an even earlier arrival - so please check on your confirmation. No participant may take part in any activity without first attending a pre-session safety briefing as designated by the individual activity provider. The booking will normally be treated as a cancellation in the event of late arrival with the loss of all monies and the activity provider will turn you away, particularly if they have a busy schedule to meet. This is their right to do so. Your acceptance of this proviso forms part of any booking. Please take arrival times seriously allowing for any possible delays on route to the venue.
EXCLUSION FROM VENUE
The activity provider has the right, at all times, to refuse participants access to the booked activity at any stage of the booking and remove them from their venue if in their opinion the participants are under the permitted age; are the incorrect height or weight; are unfit to take part in the activity because of physical or mental impairment; be under the influence of alcohol or drugs; have arrived too late to take part in the pre-activity briefing; consider them to be a danger to themselves, other participants or members of staff ; or are displaying aggressive and abusive behaviour (verbal or physical). If any of these occurrences apply, the booking will have been deemed to have been cancelled and cancellation charges will apply. There are no exceptions.
PERSONAL SAFETY / HEALTH REQUIREMENTS
Whilst all our activities are as safe as they can be given their inherent physical dangers, it MUST be understood that all safety instructions, directions, warnings and all other instructions must be followed at all times during your time at the venue. You must listen carefully to all safety instructions and ensure you are wearing any safety equipment or clothing properly. If in any doubt you must seek further guidance and help from the activity provider immediately. You must not attempt to go beyond your capabilities or engage in risky or daring behaviour other than what is involved in the activity itself. It is a given that you undertake the activity with the full understanding of the risks involved and accept responsibility for your own safety together with that of any minors for whom you have responsibility. You will be asked to sign a disclaimer before taking part in many activities to say you are mentally and medically fit and well. If you are in any doubt about the suitability of the activity for you, you must check with your GP prior to making any booking. If you refuse to sign a disclaimer at the venue you will not be able to take part and such an action will be treated as a cancellation.
ACTIVITY DESCRIPTIONS / RESTRICTIONS
All the activities are described in as much detail as possible and are correct at the time each booking is made. All timings for activities are the total time for the sessions and not an indication of a per person allocation. From time to time activities do change both in price, type and duration. Our Booking Advisors will make every effort to provide additional information and clarification about any of our featured activities, however customers are deemed to have thoroughly familiarised themselves with the activity description, all restrictions, including height, weight and age restriction as detailed on our websites before booking the activity. No responsibility can be accepted by us for an inappropriate booking if you do not familiarise yourself with all aspects of the activity in question at the venue chosen either on our website or through your own enquiries before placing a booking. This is your responsibility.
For gokarting and quad biking no driving licence is required, however, when taking part in 4x4 or a supercar / rally driving experience, you must have held a full UK licence for at least one year (F1 driving experience 3 years). You must also take your licence for inspection on the day. Failure to produce a licence for this type of activity will result in you not taking part in the activity and this will be deemed as a cancellation.
If you are dissatisfied with your activity in any respect, or you have any other complaint about the activity provider or any other matter in relation to the venue or it's performance, then you must speak to the activity provider on the day and come to an agreement about how you can resolve the situation. It will not be considered reasonable if you have not brought your dissatisfaction to the attention of the activity provider at the time and then complain later. If you take part in an activity, either the booked activity or a replacement offered by the activity provider on the day, it is deemed that you consider that the activity of which you took part is entirely acceptable to you and that a complaint at a later date is unlikely to be considered. Should you have a complaint about the actual booking process, please email: firstname.lastname@example.org. All communications with Customer Services must be in writing, as this ensures that all aspects of the communication between us are clear and unambiguous. Once received we will investigate and discuss the matter with the relevant parties. When we have gathered all the necessary information, we will get back to you.
Should you be deemed eligible for a refund the absolute maximum amount this will be is the monies you have paid to us and will not extend to consequential loss or claimed inconvenience or stress howsoever caused. No exceptions are made in this regard. If you have taken part in any activity during the booked event in question, regardless of the circumstances or conditions under which you took part, then this will negate any refund claim.
