Walking & Multi Activity Adventures
To confirm your booking, you will be required to make a payment of either a deposit or full payment depending on the adventure experience (event), for every person named on the booking. The balance of the event price must be paid in full or at least two calendar months prior to the event start date. If the balance is not received in accordance with the above, we reserve the right to treat the booking as cancelled, to re-let the space and retain the deposit paid. If the booking is made within two calendar months of the event, full payment must be paid. Without this the booking cannot be accepted.
All participants are strongly advised to take out adequate insurance cover for their activity / adventure experience. A policy that covers the adventure activities you will be partaking in and also includes cancellation cover in case the event is cancelled due to unforeseen circumstances including adverse weather conditions.
The cancellation of a booking can be accepted only if it is received in writing (email) from the person who mad the booking.
The following cancellation charges will apply:
|Period before event start date within which written notice of cancellation is received
|Amount you must pay
|More than 42 days
|42 to 29 days
|28 to 15 days
|14 to 1 days
|Start date or after
The above percentages refer to the total price. Please note: Cancellations cannot be accepted by telephone.
Where we offer ‘activity’ only arrangements (i.e. you make your own way to the activity destination), we accept no liability for costs you incur for the travel arrangements you make (e.g. by coach, flight or rail) should we change the event in any way or cancel it within the terms of our booking conditions see section 6. Therefore we strongly recommend that you do not finalise any travel arrangements before you have checked with us and especially not earlier than 2 weeks before your intended date of travel.
If, after you have confirmed your booking, you wish to make an alteration, an administrative charge of £15.00 will be made per person. However, if you require a transfer to a different event within 14 days of the event start date, an 80% cancellation charge will apply.
Any such amendments may be telephoned to us in the first instance, but will only be confirmed on receipt of written confirmation.
Changes by Us
Country Adventures reserves the right at any time to substitute alternative accommodation (where included as part of the event) or make any other alterations to the event, which become necessary for the smooth running of the event. We will undertake to inform you of any necessary changes 2 weeks in advance of the event start date. Where this involves additional expenditure such charges must be borne by you or if the increased charges are not acceptable a full refund will be offered.
In circumstances where cancellation is unavoidable due to insufficient demand for the event, we will offer you the choice of an alternative event of at least comparable standard, wherever this is possible, or a refund of all monies paid by you. We will undertake to inform you of no later than 2 weeks before commencement of the event.
Although we will always endeavour to perform our obligations to you, we cannot accept responsibility for circumstances where an event is cancelled or changes to the program are made as a result of ‘force majeure’ such as war, strikes, natural disasters, terrorist activity, fire, health risk, adverse weather conditions and similar events beyond our control (please refer to 2. Insurance).
