Booking Terms and Conditions
- This agreement is between you and Skyline Promotions Ltd, 31 Corsica St, London N5 1JT. VAT Number 710 7674 43
If you are jumping for a charity and wish to recover
reimbursement of the booking deposit and the cost of the training and the jump,
you must raise the minimum sponsorship money appropriate for your chosen jump as
detailed on the 'Free charity jumps' page on this website.
If you are
purchasing the jump for yourself the cost for the training and the jump must be
paid on the day of the training and this payment is totally non-refundable even
if you do not jump for any reason.
If you are buying a Gift Voucher the full cost of the jump
must be prepaid as indicated on the Book Online form. This includes a £70
non-refundable booking deposit as referred to in 3 below and the remainder which
represents the fee for the jump and all associated training which is passed on
by Skyline Promotions Ltd to the parachute centre who are solely responsible for
these elements. Gift Vouchers are refundable within the first 28 days subject to
a £30 administration fee. Gift vouchers must be redeemed within 12 months but
can be transferred to another person within this period.
All booking deposits are completely non-refundable and are
payable to Skyline Promotions Ltd and cover various costs including without
limitation assisting you to find an airfield where you may carry out your jump
and in the case of gift vouchers the design and printing of the voucher. Such
booking deposits are valid for twelve months from the date of booking and should
the jumper not be able to complete their jump due to inclement weather
alternative arrangements will be made. 'Open dated' gift vouchers may be
redeemed at any time within this twelve month period.
Should the weather be unsuitable for jumping on the day it
will be up to the jumper to return to the parachute centre on another
occasion(s) if necessary to complete their jump.
Should you cancel or postpone your jump within 2 weeks of your jump date, or
fail to attend the airfield on your jump date, a fee of £50 will be charged to
the same credit/debit card that you supplied for your initial deposit payment.
This fee is in addition to the standard booking deposit and is not in any way
deductible from any sponsorship money raised for charity.
Skyline Promotions Ltd in consideration of the payment of
the booking deposit will take all reasonable steps to arrange the jump at your
nearest available parachute centre but since parachuting is a very popular
sport, we may be forced to offer you an alternative due to lack of availability
at some centres. Skyline Promotions Ltd acts as your agent in arranging for the
jump and not as the agent for the parachute centre. Skyline Promotions Ltd use
only those parachute centres which are affiliated to the British Parachute
Association as the National Governing Body of the sport. Accordingly, no
representations or warranties of any kind are made by Skyline Promotions Ltd as
to the suitability, capability, quality of training or operation of any
parachute centre. Any queries or complaints with regards to these aspects should
be referred to the parachute centre concerned.
- We will begin to arrange your parachute jump on your behalf as soon as we have sent
you a confirmation email informing you that your booking has been received. By agreeing
that our service starts immediately you are waiving any cancellation rights due
to you under the Distance Selling Regulations.
- Any complaints should be made in writing to the address at the top of this agreement
(In this section 'you' refers to the jumper)
For a tandem skydive you must be at least 16 years old; for static line jumps
and AFF you must be aged between 16 and 49 inclusive. For all jumps you must
weigh under 15 stone with your weight in proportion to your height. Please note
some centres have lower weight limits - please contact us for details.
The principal medical restrictions for all jumps are diabetes, epilepsy, fits,
recurrent blackouts, heart or lung disease, mental illness and some cases of
asthma but if you are in any doubt please contact us for further information.
All jumpers are required to sign a medical form before their jump declaring
their fitness to take part - this will be sent to you upon receipt of this
Reservation Form but is also available on request. Those under the age of 18
will need the medical form signed by a parent or guardian; those aged 40 and
over will need it signed by their doctor.
On payment to the parachute centre of the fee for the training
and the jump, all jumpers are covered by the British Parachute Association
Liability Insurance Policy up to £2 million for liability to Third Parties.
Please note that this does not cover the jumper or their dependants for personal
injury including death. All jumpers are therefore strongly recommended to take
out their own insurance cover for personal accident benefits to whatever level
they consider appropriate. They can do this either in conjunction with their own
insurance broker or they may take advantage of the cover detailed on this
website. If you wish to take advantage of this scheme then please refer to the
insurance page for full details.
Parachuting is an adventure sport and participation in such sports necessarily
involves a risk of injury or death regardless of the standard of training,
supervision and equipment employed. I voluntarily accept all the risks inherent
in the sport and I agree for myself and my personal representatives to indemnify
and hold harmless Skyline Promotions Ltd against any claim or claims whether on
my own account or from third parties arising out of any accident or incident
resulting in any loss or damage (including bodily injury and death).
By completing your booking on-line you are confirming that you have read all the
above sections marked Booking Terms and Conditions, Medical Restrictions, Insurance, and Important Notice, and understand and agree to be bound to
those terms and conditions and to comply fully with the same.
