TERMS AND CONDITIONS

1. A non-refundable deposit of the amount stated in each holiday description is the minimum required at the time of booking. (You may opt to pay the full amount or any other amount if you wish.)

2. If a booking is made 8 weeks or less prior to the departure date then the full amount is payable at the time of booking.

3. The balance of the tour price is due 8 weeks prior to the departure date unless indicated in the write up of the particular holiday. Should this final payment fail to reach us by the date specified, we reserve the right to treat the booking as cancelled, retain the deposit and invoice you for the ‘cancellation payment’ as indicated below.

4. Any cancellation by the client must be made in writing - an email is acceptable. The date on which the letter/email is received by us will determine the cancellation charges applicable. These charges are expressed as a percentage of the total tour price, and are as follows: Over 84 days (12 weeks) before departure 50%; 83 - 42 days (6-12 weeks) before departure 75%; 41 days or less before departure 100%.

5. We will confirm our acceptance of your booking by e mail (or in writing if you do not use e mail) and it is at the time we send out this confirmation that a contract comes into existence between us. An administration charge of £25 will be made for alterations or amendments to a booking. The transfer of a booking from one tour to another, must be made more than 57 days prior to departure and will also incur a fee of £25. The request to transfer can be made by e mail. Cherylhamerphotography will make every effort to accomodate requests to transfer, but we are under no obligation to do so, and it may not be possible.

6.cherylhamerphotography reserves the right to alter or cancel any holiday although every effort will be made to avoid this. Should an alteration or cancellation become necessary for example due to under booking or force majeure, you will then have the choice of accepting the change, taking an alternative booking with cherylhamerphotography (and where this is of a lower price we will refund the difference), or withdrawing from the contract and accepting a refund of all monies paid to cherylhamerphotography. Where a workshop or holiday has to be terminated early whilst in operation, the fees of the percentage remaining on the workshop will be reimbursed. For the avoidance of doubt, as cherylhamerphotography is not party to any flight or accommodation bookings you make yourself and has received no payment for the same, we will not refund the costs of either of these bookings in the event of holiday cancellation. You are referred to clause 14 below.

7. Under booking is the situation in which the minimum number of bookings required to run a tour is not met, and if we have to cancel a tour for this reason, we will not do so less than 30 days prior to departure. Force majeure is unusual and unforeseeable circumstances beyond our control, such as war or the threat of war, riots, terrorist activity, civil strife, industrial disputes, natural or nuclear disaster, fire, flood or adverse weather conditions.

8. In the event of the specified tutor being unable to attend due to illness or other circumstances beyond our control, the workshop may need to be cancelled or terminated, and the provisions of clause 6 will come into effect.

9. We reserve the right to change any of the prices, service or other particulars contained in this brochure at any time before we enter into contract with you. If there is any change, we will notify you before we enter into such contract.

10. Some tours to islands or other remote places involve the use of transport such as boats which may be delayed by bad weather, high seas or other circumstances. We will be pleased to assist you in practical terms but we are unable to accept responsibility for costs that might be incurred should your return be delayed at the end of the tour or need alternative accommodation at the start of the tour. It is therefore recommended that delegates take out their own insurance cover against such eventualities. You are referred to clause 16 below.

11. cherylhamerphotography cannot be held responsible for any loss or damage to personal items, or for any personal accident or injury. Delegates are respectfully reminded that although our activities are not classed as ‘extreme’ or ‘high risk’ they could still potentially entail risk or danger and all activities are entered into at your own risk.

12. The type of holidays and workshops we offer requires flexibility and must allow for alternatives. For this reason the outline itinerary and holiday description must be taken as an indication of what may take place on the holiday, and not as a contractual obligation on the part of the company.

13. cherylhamerphotography does not accept liability for any loss or additional expense caused by delay or interruption to travel services through weather conditions, civil disturbance, industrial action, strikes, wars, floods or sickness. Such losses or additional expenses are the responsibility of the passenger.

14. cherylhamerphotography accepts responsibility for acts and /or omissions of its employees (whilst acting in the course of their employment). The Company does not accept responsibility or liability for death, bodily injury or illness caused to the client or any other person included in the booking, unless arising from the negligent act and/or omission of the Company’s employees (whilst acting in the course of their employment). Any claims shall be subject to English law in respect of any question of liability or quantum, and all proceedings shall be within the exclusive domain of the English courts.

15. The client must communicate any perceived failure in the performance of this contract on the spot to the workshop leader thus giving the workshop leader the opportunity to achieve a satisfactory solution. Should this not be possible, you should make your complaint known to us in writing within 28 days of the completion of the holiday.

16. It is a term of the contract between us that you will obtain the appropriate travel insurance cover before you set out on the holiday / workshop (whether abroad or in this country).
The insurance must cover the loss, expenses and damages arising from, including but not limited to, the cancellation of the holiday (whether in whole or in part), personal accident and injury, medical and repatriation costs (for overseas holidays), loss of baggage and personal money and belongings and flight cancellations and delays.

17. All clients must be in possession of a valid passport and all visas, permits and certificates, including medical certificates required for the whole of the journey and the client accepts responsibility for obtaining the same. All information and advice given by us climate, clothing, baggage, special equipment etc is given in good faith.

18. In the unlikely event that we become unable to provide a significant proportion of the services you have booked after you depart, we will make alternative arrangements for you at no extra charge, or if this is impossible, we will provide you with transport back to the point of departure from your holiday destination, and a pro rata refund for the cost of the remainder of your holiday. In addition, if appropriate, we will pay you compensation of an amount which is reasonable taking into account the circumstances, and which is not covered by the terms of your own travel insurance
as per clause 16 above.

19. cherylhamerphotography will strive to keep all prices as originally advertised, even where there may be a long 'lead in time' for the holiday. However, it is possible that a surcharge may
need to be applied where costs which are beyoned the company's control rise substantially. In such circumstances cherylhamerphotography will give customers a clear explanation for the reason a surcharge is needed.

20. By paying the relevant deposit, you are agreeing to accept all the above conditions.
