Cancellations due to COVID lockdowns

If a national or local lockdown restricts our ability to run a course or activity which you are booked onto, we will offer you an alternative date or a refund.


Cancellations by us

Whilst every reasonable attempt will be made to deliver activities, Stand Up Paddleboard UK reserves the right to cancel or modify the activities due to safety considerations, bad weather and other factors beyond our control. In this case we will offer you an alternative activity or the option of re-booking the intended activity for a new date.


Cancellations by you

Your deposit is not refundable. If you cancel your booking more than one month before your visit no further money will be due. If you cancel all or part of your booking within one month of your visit then the full balance of the trip is still due and no refund will be given. As with any holiday or trip away we recommend that you take out personal holiday insurance to cover cancellation. When booking on behalf of a group, we would recommend you book for the minimum number in the party and add others to the group as they confirm. If your group numbers reduce within one month of your activities the full balance for the number of places originally booked will still be due. However, for last minute bookings we need to know your final group numbers at the time of booking.
