3.2 If we cannot accept your order. If we are unable to accept your order, we will inform you of this in writing and will not charge you for the Product. This might be because the relevant event or Product has sold out, because of unexpected limits on our resources which we could not reasonably plan for, because we have identified an error in the price or description of the Product or because we are unable to meet a date you have specified.
3.3 We will assign an order number to your order and tell you what it is when we accept your order. It will help us if you can tell us the order number whenever you contact us about your order.

4. Price and payment
4.1 Where to find the price for the Product. The price of the Product (which includes VAT) will be the price indicated on the order pages when you place your order. We use our best efforts to ensure that the price of the Product advised to you is correct. However please see clause 4.4 for what happens if we discover an error in the price of the Product you order. Please note that there may be service charges/booking fees and delivery costs on top of the Product price: all of these will be confirmed to you prior to placing your order.
4.2 Some of the Products are priced according to market fluctuations and so the prices may increase or decrease at any time based on demand. You will not be entitled to a refund if (i) the price you paid for a Product was at any time before you purchased your Product less than the price you paid; or (ii) the price of any Products the same or similar to that you bought is/are subsequently reduced after you purchase your Product.
4.3 We will pass on changes in the rate of VAT. If the rate of VAT changes between your order date and the date you receive the Product, we will adjust the rate of VAT that you pay, unless you have already paid for the Product in full before the change in the rate of VAT takes effect.
4.4 What happens if we got the price wrong. It is always possible that, despite our best efforts, some of the Products we sell may be incorrectly priced. We will normally check prices before accepting your order so that, where the Product's correct price at your order date is less than our stated price at your order date, we will charge the lower amount. If the Product's correct price at your order date is higher than the price stated to you, we will contact you for your instructions before we accept your order.
4.5 When you must pay and how you must pay. We accept payment with all major debit and credit cards (we do not accept Electron and there is a surcharge for company credit cards of 1.8%). We also accept payment by cheque (with a £5 surcharge). Please note that your booking will be confirmed when we are in cleared funds for the relevant amount due upon first booking (as confirmed in your order email). When you must pay depends on what Service you are buying:
(a) For Tickets and Goods, you will be required to pay in full immediately upon placing your order;
(b) For Accommodation you will be required to pay as follows:
(i) if you are booking more than ten weeks in advance of the date of your stay you will be required to pay a deposit of between 25-50
% of the price upon first booking, with the balance payable 8-10 weeks in advance of the date of your stay (as confirmed in your order email);
(ii) if you are booking within eight weeks of the date of your stay the entire price is payable upon booking;
(iii) upon making your booking you may be required to pay us a security/damage deposit (amount to be confirmed upon booking) in respect of accommodation which will be held until your stay is completed and the property has been inspected. Alternatively, we may pre-authorise the security deposit on your card. The deposit will be repaid (subject to any deductions for damage/extra cleaning/service charges; any relevant receipts will be provided) within 10 working days of your departure from the property. Any costs we incur above the security/damage deposit are payable in full immediately on your departure from the property. PLEASE NOTE our/our Partner’s decision on damage/cleaning/repair deductions is final and once a matter has been settled we cannot re-visit it.
(c) For Activities, Experiences, and Extras you will be required to pay in full upon first booking unless we advise otherwise. Please note that all outstanding amounts are due and payable ten weeks before the activity/experience date.
4.6 Our right of set-off if you are a business customer. If you are a business customer you must pay all amounts due to us under these terms in full without any set-off, counterclaim, deduction or withholding (other than any deduction or withholding of tax as required by law).
4.7 We can charge interest if you pay late. If you do not make any payment to us by the due date we may charge interest to you on the overdue amount at the rate of 5% a year above the base lending rate of Barclays Bank plc from time to time. This interest shall accrue on a daily basis from the due date until the date of actual payment of the overdue amount, whether before or after judgment. You must pay us interest together with any overdue amount.
4.8 What to do if you think an invoice is wrong. If you think an invoice is wrong please contact us promptly (ideally within 48 hours of receipt) to let us know. Once the dispute is resolved we will charge you interest on correctly invoiced sums from the original due date.

PLEASE NOTE: DELIVERY COSTS WILL ONLY BE REFUNDED WHERE GOODS ARE FAULTY OR MISDESCRIBED
(c) Where the Product is a Service, we may deduct from any refund an amount for the supply of the Service for the period for which it was supplied, ending with the time when you told us you had changed your mind.

19. Other important terms
19.1 External Links. Where our site contains links to other sites and resources provided by third parties, these links are provided for your information only. Such links should not be interpreted as approval by us of those linked websites or information you may obtain from them. We have no control over the contents of those sites or resources.

19.8 Even if we delay in enforcing this contract, we can still enforce it later. If we do not insist immediately that you do anything you are required to do under these terms, or if we delay in taking steps against you in respect of your breaking this contract, that will not mean that you do not have to do those things and it will not prevent us taking steps against you at a later date. For example, if you miss a payment and we do not chase you but we continue to provide the Products, we can still require you to make the payment at a later date.
19.9 Special Requests. We want you to have an amazing experience with us. If there is a particular need you or someone in your party has, please let us know. We will endeavour to meet any needs you have, however, our failure to do so will not be a breach of our agreement with you.

19.10 Behaviour. Our and our Partner’s staff must be treated with respect. Any abuse or unreasonable behaviour will not be tolerated and we reserve the right to refuse provision of Products to anyone whose behaviour is unacceptable.

19.14 Safety. You are responsible for following and observing all guidance, safety briefings and safety requirements and for wearing all safety equipment for any Activities/Experiences booked via our website.
