BOOKING TERMS & CONDITIONS

PARTICIPATION STATEMENT

Vivienne Rickman (VR) recognises that mountain walking and swimming are activities with a danger of personal injury or death. Participants in these activities should be aware of and accept these risks and be responsible for their own involvement. By making a booking you agree that you are aware of and accept these risks and will be responsible for your own actions and involvement. Vivienne Rickman will help you to manage these, but can never completely remove them. 

 

CONDITIONS OF BOOKING

This is a small business and whilst every effort is made to be as flexible as possible when your circumstances change, it still needs to be a viable business, therefore VR will need to adhere to these terms and conditions.  These conditions also apply to each individual when booking as a group. It is advised that you take out your own personal accident/cancellation insurance.

 

INSURANCE AND LOSS

Vivienne Rickman (VR) sessions/days/events do not include any personal accident, cancellation, third-party liability or personal insurance. VR recommends that you take out your own policy to cover all cancellations, expenses, and medical emergencies as well as equipment loss or theft.  VR will accept no responsibility whatsoever in respect of loss or damage to personal property.

 

FEES, CANCELLATIONS, REFUNDS, DEFERMENTS AND TRANSFERS

For group bookings, each individual must complete a booking form.

Only on receipt of a completed booking form and full payment will a place be guaranteed. 

CHANGES AND CANCELLATIONS BY VR

Whilst every attempt is made to ensure that advertised days/events run, the safety of all participants is paramount. VR may believe on reasonable grounds that a change of location is necessary for enjoyment and safety. When cancellation is necessary due to dangerous and/or unsuitable conditions for the activity you will be offered an alternative date.  VR will notify the client of the cancellation as soon as possible. VR will not be liable for any travel or accommodation-related expenses and it is advised that you take out your own personal accident/cancellation insurance. 

 

CANCELLATION BY THE CLIENT

No refunds are available once payment and booking has been received. If you can no longer attend you may transfer your booking to another person provided it is completed 48 hours before the start of the session, by contacting VR in writing. If this is received less than 48 hours in advance the transfer will not be accepted.

GIFT VOUCHERS

Gift Vouchers are valid for 12 months from the time of purchase and are non-refundable.

CORONAVIRUS/COVID-19 ADDITIONS

Coronavirus is a threat to us all, no matter where we go or what we do. However, SAGE evidence suggests that outdoor activities may present a lower risk of virus transmission. VR will base all activities on the following principles: 

All Wild Swim/Open Water Coaching Sessions will wherever possible follow current safe social distancing guidelines. The dynamic nature of being in the environment of mountains, lakes, rivers or the sea means there may be occasions when ideal Covid secure practices (in, for example, social distancing) can not be maintained e.g,  to deal with an immediate safety concern that takes priority.
