Refunds & Cancellation Policy

11.1 Cancellation by clients: In the event a customer wishes to cancel a booked course we reserve the right to withhold the total course costs. It is similar booking a holiday, if you book and then cancel you will lose the full payment. We feel we are being as fair as possible in trying to give you alternative dates or course.

– All cancellations must be made in writing, the 30 days reimbursement procedure starts when we receive this notice.

– Under certain circumstances dates may be changed and deposits or full payments may be held in credit in respect of future alternative dates. A postponement is ultimately a cancellation and a re-booking.

11.2 Cancellation by Bold Adventures:

– In the unlikely event of this occurring we will:

– Offer alternative dates

– Other a different course theme

– Only has a last resort will we offer a total refund of any monies paid. We never take the decision to cancel a course lightly and rather than offer an immediate refund, we actually see your commitment as important and would seek to remedy the situation through one of the first three methods.

– We reserve the right to either cancel outright or remove individuals from any course at any time due to inappropriate behavior, suspicion of participants being under the influence of alcohol or drugs, lack of suitable clothing, uncompleted consent forms or lack of group supervision by accompanying staff. Deliberate misuse & Neglect of equipment or any contravention of the Code of Conduct.

– Any losses or damage caused to equipment by the willful actions of an individual will be invoiced to the body or organisation booking activities on that persons behalf.

11.3 If a course cannot run owing to the Awards minimum number of (5) on the course, we will aim to offer a number of alternatives:

a. Offer an alternative themed course on the same dates or

b. Combining course numbers on other courses to reach over the minimum group size of 5

c. Offer alternative dates in the year.

If you choose not to accept the dates or alternatives we will aim to process through the steps above (11.2) before offering a partial refund (see below), as we know the most important outcome here is that the young participant completes their Residential section.

If, despite our best efforts to re-allocate you onto a  course you chose to accept a refund we reserve the right to withhold 50% of the cost of the course to impart some level of commitment onto you the client getting the required course completed regardless of the theme? It might be possible for the participant to attend on the theme  they chose as part of the Ambassadors Initiative at a later date?

These actions while not ideal have been taken to remain fair whilst still attempting to ask the participant to complete their residential section.

We aim to process  refunds within 30 days, as a small business we are sometimes ourselves subjected to varying payment or reimbursement terms; 30, 60 or 90 days are sometimes common waiting periods, for non-refundable deposits, reimbursement or other Invoice payments.

We have, to date, never failed to reimburse our customers.

11.4 Exceptional circumstances:

– In circumstances where cancellation may be necessary such as extreme weather conditions, illness or industrial action effecting road, emergency and rail services a fair solution will be agreed between parties. Personal insurance against cancellation is recommended.
