SHE FLIES TERMS AND CONDITIONS
OVERVIEW AUGUST 2019
She Flies is the owner and administrator of the discount program, for enabling participants to obtain discounts on goods and services through use of the discount membership card.
She Flies act as an Events Organiser and partial Travel Agent to connect and grow the community of like minded women in Extreme Sports hosting events and extreme sports holidays.
It is likely that within a She Flies hosted extreme sports holiday, we work with external and trusted Suppliers/Principals/Providers such as instructors, equipment providers, tour operators.
In booking with She Flies, you agree to the Terms and Conditions set by both She Flies and the Supplier/Principle/Provider.
ADVENTURE TRIP BOOKING TERMS AND CONDITIONS
Your contract with us is subject to these booking conditions. A contract will exist between us once you have paid your deposit (or such other fee as may be appropriate, for example where you are making a 'late booking') and we have issued you with our booking confirmation. If any part of our contract with you is found to be invalid or unenforceable, then the remainder of it will not be affected and will remain valid and enforceable.
All bookings must be made by a person aged eighteen years or over. Where your booking is for more than one person, the first-named person in your party aged eighteen years or over will be treated by us as the 'lead name' for your booking. The lead name will be responsible for making all payments due to us in accordance with our contract.
Receiving your deposit payment will be treated by us as confirmation that you have read, understood and accepted these booking conditions.
When confirming your booking, we require a deposit payment which will be stated in the deposit invoice. This is usually 20% - 50% depending on your time of booking.
Full payment is due no less than 60 days before the trip.
We accept paypal, cheques, bank transfers and credit or debit card. There are no fees for any payment method.
Your holiday price does not include:
• Visa fees, air travel, overseas airport departure charges payable locally, porterage, personal expenditure, hotel extras, fuel and extras for car hire.
• Holiday insurance
We reserve the right to alter the prices of any of the trips shown on our website. You will be advised of the current price of the trip you wish to book before your contract is confirmed.
Special requests must be made at the time of booking. We cannot guarantee that the request will be met and any failure to do so will not be a breach of contract on our part, or the Supplier/Principal. Confirmation that a request has been made will be included on your Booking Invoice or upon the acknowledgment of booking. We are unable to accept bookings which are conditional upon a special request being met and these will be treated by us as a standard booking.
TRIP CHANGES OR CANCELLATIONS BY YOU
Changes by You
You may transfer your booking to any other person satisfying all the requirements relating to your holiday notified to us by you in writing at least seven days prior to your due date of departure. Both you and the new traveller are responsible for paying all costs we may incur in making the transfer.
(b) Other changes
If you wish to make any other change to your booking at any time after our booking confirmation has been issued, we will try but cannot promise to meet your request. We require your authority in writing before we can make any change.
Cancellation by You
If you wish, following the issue to you by us of our booking confirmation, to cancel your booking we will require your authority in writing.
Our cancellation charges will apply. These are calculated with reference to the date on which we receive your authority in writing. We are unable to refund any deposits.
We strongly recommend that you take out insurance cover for cancellation adequate to cover the value of your holiday. If the reason for your cancellation is covered under the terms of your insurance policy, you may be able to reclaim these charges.
Number of days left before your due date of departure when your authority in writing is received by us. Cancellation charge (expressed as a percentage of the total holiday price):
60 days or more Deposit only
59 - 43 days: 40%
42 - 29 days: 60%
28 - 7 days: 90%
6 days or less: 100%
TRIP CANCELLATION BY SHE FLIES
Some trips will be subject to group size minimum in order to run, and therefore occasionally have to be cancelled if this is the case we will inform you at the time of booking. Once we have achieved the minimum size deposit payments, we will inform you.
You agree not to hold us responsible or for any inconveniences or financial losses from any trip cancelled by She Flies when you were informed of group size minimum at the time of booking. We ask that you do not book any travel arrangements until we have confirmed that your trip has reached the group size minimum to run.
If you have a problem with your trip whilst on the trip, this must be reported to the She Flies host and/or the Supplier/Principal immediately. If you fail to follow this procedure there will be less opportunity for us or the Supplier/Principal to investigate and rectify your complaint. The amount of compensation you may be entitled to may therefore be reduced or extinguished as a result.
If you wish to complain when you return home, please contact us via email as soon as possible, within 28 days of your return to the UK whereby we will be able to assist directly or in our capacity as an agent by liaising with the Supplier/Principal on your behalf.
Many of our trips take place in destinations where local conditions vary enormously, and the people we deal with on the ground may be less time-conscious or meticulous in planning than ourselves, and while we will do our best to ensure that the holiday goes according to plan, we ask that those who travel with us do so with a spirit of adventure, in a positive frame of mind, and in good humour.
OUR LIABILITY TO YOU
You must inform us without undue delay of any failure to perform or improper performance of the travel services included in this package.
