We want to make sure any of our clients (“the Clients” or “you”) have an enjoyable time with The Get Go (“the Company”). To help us make this happen please be aware of our terms and conditions below.
1. Confirmation of Booking
Before requesting payment The Get Go will confirm the full details of your booking using your preferred method of communication. For holidays, upon receipt of your guaranteed booking we’ll send you The Get Go trip confirmation pack containing information about getting to the start, a detailed trip itinerary, and other useful pre-trip information. A contract shall exist between you and the Company when a completed booking form and deposit (plus insurance premiums where appropriate) is received and your holiday confirmation is dispatched. The deposit required in order to confirm your booking will be equal to 20% of the total price. If you are making a booking less than 6 weeks before the start date of your holiday full payment will be required at the time of booking. Details of exactly what is and is not included in your contract with the Company are shown within the Company website. You should be familiar with the details of this before booking.
2. Methods of Payment
A booking with The Get Go is not guaranteed until payment has been received. We accept payment by bank transfer, bank and Sterling cheques drawn on an U.K. bank.
3. Payment of Balance
Payment of final balance must be received 6 weeks prior to the commencement date of the holiday. Failure to pay on time may result in cancellation charges. If you are making a booking less than 6 weeks before the start date of your holiday full payment will be required at the time of booking.
4. Cancellation Charges
Cancellation notice is required in writing and charges may be made as listed below:
Over 6 weeks deposit and insurance premiums

To transfer to another holiday you must notify us at least at least 6 weeks prior to departure, pay a £75 fee, plus any increase in holiday cost. The Company reserves the right to refuse any request to transfer to another holiday. If you are unable to come on your holiday due to serious illness, jury service or any other serious reason, your booking can be transferred to another person up to seven days before trip start, providing the replacement person pays a £50 transfer fee. Exceptions to this policy cannot be made for any reason.
5. Free Transfer Service
This applies only to transfers to and from the accommodation relevant to the following locations; Resnik Airport (Split, Croatia). Free transfers are only available as detailed in clause 5 below.
6. Hours of Operation of Free Transfer Service
Transfers are only available during the hours specified for the holiday on our website. If other clients are arriving on the same day it will be necessary to wait for their arrival before the transfer departs for its destination. Additional transfers outside the stated hours may be arranged on certain holidays for an additional fee.
7. The Get Go Staff
You must abide by the authority of your guide. If they believe that your behaviour presents any risk to the safety of the group you may be asked to leave the group. You will not be entitled to any refund.
8. Dangerous Sports
Clients partake in activities entirely at their own risk. Clients must make their own decisions regarding their abilities, however the Get Go staff and coaches can provide advice if requested. The Company wishes to make it clear that The Get Go holidays are not suitable for beginners. Upon booking clients are required to agree that physical exercise and certain activities are potentially hazardous, and as such accept that the Company cannot be held liable for client safety whilst undertaking an activity. Furthermore clients are required to state at the time of booking if they are aware of any relevant medical conditions which could put their health at risk whilst taking part in any booked activities, and that they must consult a GP or specialist in order to gain medical certification that they are in good health to undertake our activities.
9. The Get Go Vehicles
Transport during the holiday in the Company’s vehicles is a free service (unless specified) and may be withdrawn due to circumstances beyond our control. We will however try to provide an alternative service should this occur. Clients travel in the Company’s vehicles at their own risk.
All clients must have proof of appropriate and adequate active sports insurance cover. If no proof of insurance is available, the Company reserves the right to refuse to coach the clients concerned. You must present proof of your insurance cover to the Company’s representatives upon arrival.
11. Cancellation by the Company
The Company will only cancel your holiday if a) it is forced to do so by unusual or unforeseeable circumstances, such as war or unrest or b) it is forced to do so as a result of flight cancellations or c) the minimum number of bookings required to operate the tour has not been reached (see clause 12). If the Company cancels your holiday you will be offered an alternative. If this is not acceptable the Company will refund monies received in respect of the cost of the tour. We will not be liable for any other expenses which you have incurred as a result of your booking.
12. Minimum numbers
If the minimum number of clients for a holiday (8) is not reached by 6 weeks before departure, as a last resort, we reserve the right to cancel the holiday and/or make significant modifications to the holiday and/or make an extra charge of up to £100 to each person booked on the tour. You will be given these options by the Company should this clause be invoked.
13. Other Activities
The Company acts as an agent only in respect of all activities, whether or not included in the tour price, which are organised and operated by any other company. Your contract will be directly with the activity provider and subject to
their booking conditions.
In extraordinary circumstances we reserve the right to impose surcharges up to 6 weeks prior to departure due to unfavourable exchange rate movements, increased transport costs or as a result of any government action. You will only be charged an amount above 2% of the basic holiday cost, and if the charge exceeds 10% of the basic holiday cost you may cancel your booking by providing the Company with written notification within 7 days of your being notified of the level of the surcharge. This cancellation will be governed by the same alternative holiday and refund terms as clause 10 above.
15. Holiday changes
The Get Go itineraries are well researched and carefully planned but we are constantly striving to enhance the enjoyment of our holidays. As our experience grows and conditions change, we may find improvements to what we have planned and make alterations for everyone’s benefit. Sometimes we are required to alter an itinerary due to unforeseen circumstances. In these rare cases, The Get Go will endeavour to make alternative arrangements while maintaining quality standards. You must accept that the web site descriptions are to give you a guide as to what to expect from your holiday but that there will still be considerable flexibility when on the holiday. You will not be refunded for any services not utilised such as the Free Transfer Service.
If you have a complaint about your holiday you should communicate it to the Company representatives so that remedial action can be taken if possible. In any event you must notify the Company of any complaint, in writing, within 14 days of the completion of your holiday.
17. Company responsibilities
The Company accepts no responsibility for any damage or loss arising from a failure to carry out the contract, or in the process of carrying out the contract, as a result of a) actions by the Client or b) unusual and unforeseeable circumstances beyond the control of the Company or c) any event which the Company, even with all due care, could not foresee or forestall or d) the theft of belongings or equipment or injury to the Client which occur as result of activities undertaken, or while in transit in any vehicle or trailer, or at any other time during the holiday. Where the Company is found to be liable for any damages, howsoever arising, these damages shall be limited to the price paid for the holiday.
18. Information provided by the Company
