3. Booking reservations


3.1 Our experiences are subject to availability. We do not pencil book any experience without any proof and payment confirmation. Before a booking is confirmed, we reasonably check the service to be available, you will be sent an invoice with your requested package with a validity and the full details of your trip and a payment request/details will be sent. Once payment is received and in cleared funds, a booking confirmation and a binding contract will be sent.


3.2 Please check that all details such as names, dates and timings and all other elements of your booking are correct. Where this is not done and there is an unreasonable delay in notifying any apparent discrepancies in the confirmed arrangements, you will be responsible for any additional charges that may arise as a result of alterations that have to be made to the booking.


3.3  Occasionally, we have to cancel a booking prior to issue of the confirmation invoice, where the supplier is unable to confirm all key elements, and/or we are unable to offer suitable alternative arrangements. If we have to cancel your booking prior to confirmation or the arrangements we are able to confirm when we issue a confirmation invoice are significantly different to those requested and any alternative arrangements we offer you are not acceptable, we will refund all monies you have paid us. As bookings can only be accepted on the basis set out above, other than the refund no additional compensation will be payable where your booking is canceled or a significant change made by us (which you accept) in accordance with this clause. We reserve the right to decline your booking and return your deposit payment at our absolute discretion.


3.4 The person named on the quotation (“party leader”) must be authorized to make the booking on the basis of these Terms and Conditions by all persons named on the booking and by their parent or guardian for all party members who are under 18 when the booking is made. By paying the deposit, the party leader accepts these Terms and Conditions on behalf of all  members of the party and confirms that he/she is authorized to do so by all other members of the party. The party leader is responsible for all payments due to us and must be at least 18 when the booking is made.
