Bikes & Equipment
You are responsible for the care & safe keeping of any equipment you use which belongs to Scoot Cycling Holidays. You will ensure that bikes are securely locked to an immovable object when left unattended. In the event that the bike and/or any accessories are lost or stolen you shall indemnify us for the cost of replacing those items.
We will always do our best to ensure that your accommodation is in accordance with our advertising & your booking requirements. In some locations accommodation is limited & it may be necessary to change some of the details from those advertised or requested. We will notify you of any such alterations as soon as we can, offering alternative arrangements of at least equivalent standard.
We aim to ensure you have an enjoyable holiday & we welcome feedback (positive or negative) on all aspects of our holidays so that we can continue to improve them. If you have any problems or are unhappy in any way with any aspect of the holiday please call us at the earliest opportunity so that action can be taken to remedy the problem. Any complaint made to Scoot Cycling Holidays after your holiday should be made in writing within 28 days of your return home.
Temperature & Weather
We have arranged these holidays for when the British weather is favourable, but do not forget this is the UK so it is better to bring a waterproof jacket and an extra layer of warmth.
Method of Payment
Our preferred method of taking payment is bank transfer through internet banking. Please let us know if this is not convenient and we can send you a payment request through Paypal which will enable you to pay by credit or debit card. Due to the high charges that Paypal levies we find it necessary to make a surcharge of 4% on holidays paid for through this method. This will be added to the Paypal invoice.
Except where otherwise stated in these booking conditions, we regret we cannot accept liability or pay any compensation where the performance of our contractual obligations is prevented or affected by “force majeure”. For the purposes of these booking conditions, “force majeure” means any event which we, our employees, agents or suppliers of the services(s) in question could not, even with all due care, foresee or avoid. Such events may include war, riot, civil strife, terrorist activity, industrial dispute, natural or nuclear disaster, adverse weather conditions, fire and all similar events outside of our control.
We do not store any credit or debit card information given to us by our customers and do not share any personal information with any third parties.
We endeavour to pass on any discount we are able to negotiate with our accommodation partners, our very youngest SCOOTERS (under 3) will usually go free when sharing a room with their parents, a small charge maybe levied however for the use of specialist equipment – i.e. cots – please check at the time of booking.
Our older SCOOTERS (3 to 12 years) usually qualify for a 40% discount when sharing a room with their parents, subject to availability; please check at the time of booking.
We will endeavour to keep these costs down to approximately £10 per night where possible. Please ring or email for further details.
