Be aware rebooking fees are charged for cancellations made with less than 4 weeks notice.
Our cancellation policy applies in all circumstances including no shows, illness, relocation, transport failure and bereavement.
The reason for this is when you make a booking with us we assign staff and equipment to deliver the booking, we are therefore unable to offer that space to anyone else. We will have made commitments to staff for your booking and we may have turned away other bookings. Unfortunately we are unable to get insurance that covers us for this loss. We therefore do not offer refunds for cancellations as we are likely to incur costs.
