4th Dimension Ltd – Booking Procedure and Terms & Conditions
Duke of Edinburgh Award Scheme – Individual Bookings
Your booking will only be confirmed on receipt of this signed document.
Your place will not be approved without our returned Booking Form, Booking Procedures and Terms & Conditions document and accompanying deposit (this should be made via BACs payment where possible – Cheques made payable to ‘Fourth Dimension Ltd’ are accepted where a BACs payment is not possible). This constitutes a contract between our organisation and you as the client. Your booking will then be confirmed by email.
DEPOSITS: To secure your booking, as noted above, you must complete, sign and return the Booking Form, Booking Procedures and Terms & Conditions and accompanying deposit. The deposit covers initial administration and provisional campsite bookings where appropriate. Your deposit will form day 1 of your expedition, currently £54.00 + VAT.
Deposits are non-refundable under any circumstances; and we strongly advise that you arrange your own travel insurance to cover you during the expedition.
PAYMENT: The final balance of payment must be settled no later than one month prior to your booking. Final payments not received by this time will be considered in breach of contract and the booking will be treated as cancelled until payment is received. You will receive email notification of cancellation from us.
INSURANCE: As noted previously, we strongly advise that all participants take out their own personal travel and injury insurance to cover them during the course. Our £10m Public Liability Insurance covers you in the case of our negligence. It does NOT cover personal accident, cancellation or curtailment, personal luggage or health insurance.
4th Dimension cannot take responsibility for the loss or damage to personal belongings including items left in tents, buildings, vehicles or lost/damaged during activities. You are advised not to bring valuable items with you. All personal property is your responsibility unless it becomes lost or damaged due to our negligence.
CANCELLATION: You are advised to check with your insurance provider as to whether the reason for withdrawal by a person(s) is covered by your policy.
UNFORESEEN OCCURRENCES: In the event of an occurrence that we could not foresee or avoid (Force Majeure such as adverse weather condition, real or potential terrorist activity, fire, industrial factors, real or threatened war, act of God or similar), we do not accept liability if we are unable to fulfil our obligations or you suffer loss or damage in any way.
LIABILITY: We will only accept responsibility for any personal illness, injury or death which results in the negligent (as the word is understood in English Law) acts or omissions of any servant or agent, or supplier working on our behalf in the provision of services or facilities to you within the scope of their employment. We can only be liable for the provision of special requests where we have confirmed their availability in advance or in writing.
COMMUNICATION: It is important that every aspect of your course is explained and any relevant medical information is provided. Medical forms must be accessible to us at all times. If we are required to administer medication, written permission must be provided. You should be physically fit to attend the course. With prior notice, we can often accommodate those with certain injuries that may require the need for carrying less equipment. Health issues will be monitored throughout the course.
PARTICIPANT eDofE ID NUMBERS: Please ensure you provide us with your Participant eDofE ID number and following information prior to the start of any Qualifying Expeditions so that our Assessors can submit the necessary reports. You should confirm that you have completed all relevant sections on eDofE prior to arrival and make sure you are registered on the correct scheme with your DofE manager to ensure the reports are successfully uploaded to eDofE.
