Booking - When booking a session/s, a contract is made when the booking is confirmed by Harlyn Surf School either in writing, email or verbally. In the case of late telephone bookings, when written/e-mail confirmation is not possible in time then the agreement is a verbal contract. When making a booking with Harlyn Surf School you are confirming that you have read and agree with these terms and conditions. Exceptions to these terms and conditions cannot be made for any reason as we run extremely high quality sessions with limited spaces.
Payment – When a lesson is booked we require a deposit to secure the booking. This amount will be: £40 or one person’s payment. Group bookings of 5-8 people £80 or 2 persons payment. 8 people or more 25% of the total session cost. Payment can be made over the phone, via pay pal or on the beach via card or cash. Once the payment is received we will then issue a lesson confirmation written or verbally. The person submitting the booking accepts responsibility for payment for everyone listed in the booking and is responsible for ensuring that all other persons listed in the booking are aware of the terms and conditions. The remaining balance for the session will be due on arrival.
Changing your booking and Charges - Harlyn Surf School will make every effort to arrange any changes requested after the booking has been confirmed, providing it is more than 14days before the course start date. Any changes are subject to availability if the changes cannot be made due to a lack of availability the deposit is non-refundable. In the case where your group size drops in numbers from the original booking we must receive notification of this at least 48hrs before your lesson time via email/verbally. If the changes are less than 48hrs before the session you will be charged for the number of people based on your original booking. We operate on a instructor to student ratio if the amount of people in your booking drops or increases this can effect whether we need another instructor team member.
