Terms and conditions

TERMS AND CONDITIONS

On this page, you can find out all of our terms & conditions, including information about deposits, cancellations and refunds.

PAYMENTS

As a registered travel agent, we take all payments for our events in advance. Payment on the day is not an option for any of our events unless a special arrangement has been made with a member of the Barcelona Hen Weekend team.

We take a 20% deposit at the time of booking and the remaining balance must be paid by the date stated on your invoice. The 20% deposit is non-refundable, regardless of group size. The rules for final payment can be seen below:

Payments can be made by bank transfer or credit/debit card. There is a 1% surcharge on all card payments. If this is not paid, we reserve the right to ask you to pay it separately or to cancel your booking.

If the final balance is not paid when requested, your booking will be canceled and the 20% deposit will not be refunded.

CANCELATIONS

Cancelations cost us money and we have a strict cancelation policy in place.

If you cancel…

Should you cancel, the following charges apply:

If you want to decrease the number of guests…

If you wish to cancel on behalf of only some members, you need to do so before your final payment has been made:

Reducing the number of guests can affect your booking price, as group discounts may no longer apply or we may have to cancel the event altogether. Please see below for information about reasons we may cancel.

If we cancel…

Safety

The safety of our clients is extremely important to us. If for any reasons we have to cancel due to safety concerns, we will make every effort to reschedule the activity/activities for a different time or date. If we cannot reschedule, we will offer a full or partial refund. A partial refund will apply if we have to recoup costs including but not restricted to: money we have paid to the supplier; the cost of transport to/from the activity and what we deem to be the price of time spent organizing your event.

The safety of an activity will be determined by us or by our suppliers, and the decision is final.

Boat cancelations due to weather

In the event the skipper deems the weather unsuitable/dangerous to sail then the trip will be canceled. You will be offered a full refund or the chance to re-schedule the trip for another day.  Unsuitable/dangerous weather is defined as heavy rain, strong winds, and dangerous sea conditions. In the event of light rain and winds, where the skipper is happy it is safe to sail, then the trip will not be canceled and we cannot offer any refund. 

For sailing trips reserved in the Spring or Autumn, where the weather can be cooler and more unpredictable, we suggest that our groups ensure they wear and take appropriate clothing, such as waterproof jackets. 

Other reasons we may cancel

If we have to cancel for any of the reasons given above, we will offer a full refund of advanced payment and we will not have any further liability to you.

We hold all monies pre-paid by you in a separate bank account until the event has taken place or the cancellation policy applies. This is in accordance with the Package Travel Regulations 1992.

Insurance

We hold the relevant insurances in terms of Public Liability and that as a Registered Travel Agency. We would strongly suggest you arrange your own Travel Insurance, to cover any medical emergencies, losses, thefts during your stay in Barcelona, or any flight delays or cancellations which would impact your bookings with us.

Sustainability
We are passionate about sustainable travel and tourism. Barcelona is a beautiful city and it’s up to all of us to keep it that way! So please…

 

Important: Problems or queries during your event

Our office is closed from 17.30h on Fridays and at the weekend, so please do not email us about problems or questions as we will not receive them. Please note that it is very difficult for us to change the time and/or date of events at short notice, so it is imperative that you take great care to be on time for your activities. Please do not contact us to make changes unless there is an emergency. If you miss an activity due to poor time management, no refund is offered.

Agreement

Our terms and conditions do not affect your consumer statutory rights. When booking a Barcelona Hen Weekend product or service it is understood that you agree to these terms and conditions.

If you have any questions about these terms, please get in touch.
