Client non-attendance - Please plan your journey to arrive at your activity location / meeting point at the agreed time in your confirmation. We work to a strict time schedule and late arrivals will result in your session being cancelled. We cannot be held responsible for your inability to attend and no refunds will be issued. We strongly advise you take out a travel insurance policy which covers activities of this sort in case you lose money as a result of such an occurrence.
Client unable to take part - If the client cannot take part in any activity due to either physical impairment (including but not limited to injury or illness) we will be unable to offer a refund. If you are aware of any reason why you may not be able to take part please give us advance warning in order that we may advise an appropriate course of action. If you’re suffering from any illness or injury at the time of booking we advise you not to confirm your booking until you have been given the all-clear by your doctor. If you are refused an activity due to being under the influence (or appearing to be under the influence) of drugs or alcohol, no refund will be issued.
Weather conditions - By their nature some of our activities are subject to weather conditions. The weather is unfortunately outside of our control. On the rare occasions where conditions make it impossible for us to provide the activities within our strict safety guidelines we may need to cancel them. If we have to cancel for reasons outside of our control, we will tell you as soon as possible and will offer you either an alternative activity or reschedule your activity. Whitewater Active is unable to reimburse travel, accommodation or other incidental expenses incurred by you in attending an activity which is cancelled for any reason.
Safety - We reserve the right to reschedule or relocate any activity if we feel it would be in the interests of our client’s safety.
Cancellations due to our inability to provide an activity - If we are unable to fulfill our contract to you in providing a service due to lack of instructors or equipment we will first attempt to provide a satisfactory alternative activity. If this is not possible on the day of the planned activity we will offer an alternative date. If this is not acceptable you will receive a full refund. Whitewater Active is unable to reimburse travel, accommodation or other incidental expenses incurred by you in attending an activity which is cancelled for any reason.
General - Should the management decide that any situation qualifies for a full or partial refund (or provision of goods or services in lieu of an activity) this will be on an individual basis. Groups must be aware that any members of the group able to attend and take part in an activity should do so. Deciding not to take part will not qualify for a refund under any circumstances.
