Terms and Conditions – White Wake Sailing d.o.o.

Please find below a guide to our Terms and Conditions. Enquiries about a course can take place via email, phone or direct contact. A booking will be considered confirmed once the payment of the appropriate amount (see below) has been received. Please do not book flights or holidays until you have received written confirmation from us that your booking is confirmed.

Depending on the course, we may require the full booking, medical, and emergency contact forms before the course starts. We will need to have ALL required completed forms with original signatures prior to the commencement of your course.  

Booking and Payment Policies

Theory courses are administered through White Wake Sailing, so before purchasing any of them please be sure to get acquainted with their Terms and Conditions.
Payment for all courses with a cost of < 500 Euro is 100% due at the time of booking in order to reserve your spot and/or receive your individual login information. The cost for the online courses will become non-refundable once the customer has logged in to the online course

RYA Practical courses

For all the other courses (RYA practical), we need a payment of 50% of the total cost upon confirmation of the participation in the course/trip. 100% of the payment is due 60 days prior to the commencement of the course.

Cancellations

Client Changes or Cancellations

We will make all efforts to reschedule you to the next available opportunity, and we reserve the right to levy a 10% change re-booking fee.

Should you need to cancel outright, you will have to communicate it to us in writing. We reserve the right to apply a cancellation fee, depending on the timing of the cancellation:

– 10% of total cost of the course/cruise as a cancellation fee, if this happens earlier than 3 months from the course start date

– 30% of total cost of the course/cruise, if cancellation happens between 90 and 45 days from the course start date

Our Cancellations

Should we need to cancel or postpone a course for any reason except weather/force majeure, we will make all efforts to rebook customers on the next available course. Should you not be able to take a rebooking, we will refund you any amount paid (deposit or payment). 

Exams fees

The cost of the courses does not include the exam fees due to the RYA (SRC, YM Offshore, etc). You will need to pay them to the RYA before the exam by cheque or credit/bank card.
