SECTION 18 – CONTACT INFORMATION

Synergy Guides Ltd recognises that climbing and mountaineering are activities with a danger of personal injury or death. Adventurous activities are inherently hazardous and cannot be completely risk-free, however hard we try. Accidents can happen without any contributory negligence from Synergy Guides Ltd or its staff. Synergy Guides Ltd can accept no responsibility for loss or damage to personal property or for personal injury not arising as a result of its own act or default. I understand and accept the above statements and accept that I have a responsibility to take careful note of instructions and to act in a way that will minimise the likelihood of injury.
I accept that injuries are possible in climbing, hill walking and mountaineering, as in all sporting activities, as a result of over-training, inappropriate training regimes, or poor technique as well as those that might be sustained during a slip or fall, or if something or someone falls on a person.
I am fit for the course and will inform Synergy Guides Ltd before the course of any special medical conditions that might affect my safety.
Participants are responsible for the safekeeping of all equipment issued for use whilst under instruction or guidance. With the exception of fair wear and tear, Synergy Guides Ltd reserves the right to charge for equipment that has been lost or misused.
Photographs are taken regularly by instructors, guides and leaders. Participants may appear on Synergy Guides Ltd social media platforms, website or other promotional material. If participants do not wish to be photographed please make your instructor, guide or leader aware before the start date.
A contract is formed when Synergy Guides Ltd acknowledge acceptance of the participants booking form and required payment.
Bookings are only confirmed when Synergy Guides Ltd receive a completed booking form and the non-refundable deposit (where applicable).
I understand that Synergy Guides Ltd reserves the right to change the date, course or event base or, if necessary, to cancel a booking entirely, in the event of Force Majeure (that is, unpredictable events beyond their reasonable control including, without limitation, natural disasters, war, civil or political unrest, terrorism, pandemic and extreme weather). No refund will be available in this eventuality. The postponement will be valid.
In the event of cancellation by Synergy Guides Ltd will not be liable for any costs that I may have incurred relating to the event, including (but not limited to) travel, accommodation and/or other costs
The balance of the fee is payable 6 weeks prior to the start date. In the event that the balance is not paid Synergy Guides Ltd will have the discretion to treat the booking as cancelled by the customer.
The whole booking fee is required to reserve a place for any booking made within 6 weeks of the start date.
All cancellations must be in writing and sent either by post or email. Until the participant has received confirmation from Synergy Guides Ltd the original booking remains valid.
Deposits (where applicable) are non-refundable. You are advised to take out your own travel insurance when you book. This may allow you to recover prior payments (usually less an excess) if you have to cancel and the circumstances of your cancellation are covered by the insurance contract.
Cancellation by the participant ensures the following procedure:
75% of the total course fee is owed by the participant where cancellation takes place less than 4 weeks but more than 2 weeks before the commencement of the start date; or:
100% of the total course fee where cancellation takes place within the period of 2 weeks before the commencement date of the start date; or:
100% of the total course fee where cancellation takes place on or after the commencement date of the course.
Reschedules for bad weather, illness or any significant reason; forfeit the right to a refund either particle or in full.
Cancellation by Synergy Guides Ltd ensures the following procedure:
Bookings that are cancelled by Synergy Guides Ltd will be entitled to a full refund or entitled to transfer to an alternative date and no transfer fee will be payable.
- National lockdowns or countrywide travel restrictions preventing participation will qualify for a full refund.
- Regional lockdowns, regional travel restrictions, the requirement to self-isolate, track and trace or falling sick to COVID-19 will be awarded a reschedule to a future date with no extra costs.
