TERMS AND CONDITIONS
These terms and conditions apply to every person booked onto a Valley Adventures course. If booking on behalf of a third party you accept these terms on their behalf and so it is important that you make them aware.
All places must be reserved by us receiving a completed booking form and full payment or none refundable deposit. The balance of the fee is payable 4 weeks prior to the commencement of the course. In the event that the balance is not paid we will have the discretion to treat the booking as cancelled by the client and re-sell the course place. The whole course fee is required to reserve a place for any booking made within 4 weeks of the commencement of the course.
2. CANCELLATION BY CLIENT
All cancellations must be in writing Valley Adventures once notified by letter or email of the cancellation. We will use reasonable endeavours to re-sell the course place(s). In the event that the course is resold prior to the commencement of the course, the client will receive a full refund less deposit. In the event that the course is not resold prior to the commencement of the course, the client will be charged the following cancellation fees:- 75% of the total Course fee where cancellation takes place between 14 – 28 days prior to the commencement of the course; or 100% of the total course fee where cancellation takes place up to 14 days prior to the commencement of the course.
3. CANCELLATION BY VALLEY ADVENTURES
Whilst every attempt is made to ensure that courses actually run, Valley Adventures will notify the client of cancellation as soon as practicable where it believes on reasonable grounds that cancellation is necessary due to dangerous and/or unsuitable conditions for the course activity. Valley Adventures shall notify the client of cancellation not less than five days prior to the commencement of the course where numbers as a result of client (s) cancellation failed to reach a workable minimum for the commencement of the course.
In the event of cancellation clients will be offered the choice of the following options:-
- Full refund of the course fee paid,
- Or another course on different dates.
