Terms and Conditions
For convenience (on both sides), and to avoid handling cash/cheques during the weekends themselves, the €75 fee (including a €30 non-refundable booking deposit) is payable in advance to secure your place on the weekend.
The fee covers the guided weekend field excursions, talks and the venue… as specified in the description page… it DOES NOT include food and accommodation, or additional expenses like boat trips should the opportunity arise (we’ll give you details of how to book the special weekend rate at the Celtic Ross in the weekend information sheet once you’ve booked).
If you cannot attend a weekend you have booked on, for whatever reason, we offer the following cancellation options:
- If you inform us of a cancellation more than 2 weeks before the weekend is due to commence we can either
- offer you a place on an alternative weekend to the same value subject to availability.
- refund the balance of €45 per person.
- If you inform us of a cancellation less than 2 weeks before the weekend is due to commence, unfortunately we cannot offer a refund, but are happy to offer you a place on an alternative weekend to the same value subject to availability.
Where transport is necessary we operate a car pooling system to move between wildlife watching sites on the weekend. Depending on requirements we may ask participants with their own vehicles to help out in this regard.
While we always put safety and security first during these weekends, you remain responsible for your own safety and the security of your belongings while attending the Discover Wildlife Weekend. We can not accept liability for any miss-haps, loss or damage, however caused.
