1. YOUR RESERVATION
1.1 Bookings are taken on the basis that they are made by a Group Leader. When you make a booking and pay your deposit we will take an estimate of group numbers and will reserve your arrangements in accordance with these Terms & Conditions. A binding contract between us will come into existence only when we send our Booking Confirmation to you, to your Party Hub. Prior to doing so, we may send you an acknowledgement of your booking. Any such acknowledgement simply indicates that we are dealing with your booking request and is not a confirmation of it. Note that a binding contract is formed when the booking confirmation is sent, regardless of whether this is confirmed or not.
1.2 Please check your Booking Confirmation together with all other documents we send you, as soon as you receive them. Contact us immediately if any information which appears on the Booking Confirmation or elsewhere appears to be incorrect or incomplete, as it may not be possible to make changes further down the line. We regret we cannot accept any responsibility if we are not notified of any inaccuracies within 24 hours of sending it out. Whilst we will do our best to rectify any inaccuracies notified outside these time limits, you will be responsible for any costs, expenses and/or admin fees involved in doing so.
1.3 Any contract is with the Group Leader as shown on the Booking Confirmation. Unless you advise us otherwise, we will assume that every member of your group is over 21 years of age. If this is not the case and some members of your party are younger than 21, please check with us prior to booking, that the events you book, can accommodate the younger members of your party. If this is not checked by you prior to your booking being made and you encounter problems during your booking journey or during your arrangements, we cannot be held liable.
1.4 The Group Leader is responsible for ensuring that other members of their party are aware of these Terms & Conditions and that they consent to the Group Leader acting on their behalf in dealings with us.
1.5 The Group Leader is responsible for the reservation and for ensuring that all monies due for a booking are collected and paid on time by the members of the group. The Group Leader assumes all responsibility to settle the balance of any outstanding payments required for a confirmed booking, before any specified due date.
1.6 We may change the Terms & Conditions at any time, in which case the amended Terms & Conditions will be posted on the website and will apply from the date we post them. Please check these Terms & Conditions on each occasion you use the website or Party Hub. If you continue to use the website or Party Hub you will be bound by the latest Terms & Conditions.
The format and content of The Stag Company website changes from time to time. We recommend that you refresh your browser each time you visit the website and Party Hub to ensure that you access the most up to date version.
1.7 Some of our accommodation options do not have an official star rating awarded from the accommodation themselves, but we may give them a rating based on facilities, location etc. An example of this would be certain Travelodge hotels and some European accommodation options.
2 OUR PRICING POLICY AND PAYMENT TERMS
2.1 We reserve the right to alter prices shown in any quotes or on our website and we will inform you of any price changes prior to issuing your Booking Confirmation. Once your Booking Confirmation has been issued, we reserve the right to rectify errors in the prices of confirmed arrangements. We also reserve the right to increase the price of confirmed bookings solely to allow for increases which are direct consequences of changes in:
a) the price of the carriage of passengers resulting from the cost of fuel or other power sources; or
b) the level of taxes or fees chargeable for services applicable to the booking imposed by third parties not directly involved in the performance of the booking, including tourist taxes, landing taxes or embarkation or disembarkation fees at airports; or
c) the exchange rates relevant to the package.
Such variations could include, but are not limited to, cost changes which are part of our contracts with transport providers and any other providers.
2.2 When you make your booking, the Group Leader is required to pay a non-refundable, non-transferable deposit of £50 or such other figure that may be agreed during the booking process. Each member of the group is then required to pay a non-refundable, non-transferable deposit of £30 for packages less than £200, then £50 for packages above £200 (or such other figure as may be agreed during the booking process), in order to secure their place. The group members will have up to 14 days to pay this deposit, unless another date has been agreed. It is the Group Leader's responsibility to make sure that all payments are made by members of the group by the deposit date and final payment date. The final payment date can be found on your booking confirmation and Party Hub, and unless otherwise stated, is generally set 42 days prior to the arrangements commencing. Any late payments will be subject to an administration fee of £10 per person.
Each member of your group is able to pay separately through our online payment system. Final numbers for your package will be determined by us based on the number of group members who have paid the full balance required by the final payment date. The final payment date is set to 42 days prior to the arrangements commencing, unless otherwise agreed. If your package is due to commence within 42 days of booking then the total price shall be payable at the time of booking and numbers will be confirmed at the point at which we accept your booking and receive payment.
Group members are required to make the deposit payment by the set deadline in order to secure their place. Then either pay the remainder in one sum or make further payments towards their final balance as and when they wish, ensuring that payment is received in full by the set deadline.
If the final balance date is more than three months away and the package price is over £50 they will qualify to pay by instalment plan, whereby monthly amounts will automatically be deducted from their chosen payment card, on a set date. This will be the date on which the plan was set up and cannot be changed. Please note, if the package price changes the instalment plan will be adjusted accordingly and you will be notified by email.
In all cases, anyone who does not make the required payments by the deadlines specified will be removed from the booking and will not be eligible for a refund of any monies paid to date.
The instalment plan is a standing order. Should your card expire and you wish to continue on an instalment plan, it is your responsibility to set up a new plan. We reserve the right to charge a £10 administration fee if at the final payment date there is an outstanding balance and a group member wishes to make payment. This is due to there being a £10 charge for a late payment fee.
2.3 Payments via our online payment system or on the telephone can be made by credit or debit card via a secure payment system. (Removed 3rd Jan 2018 card surcharges info). We accept all major credit & debit cards, except American Express.
2.4 Except where these conditions otherwise expressly state, all payment transactions (including but not limited to, initial payments, part payments, payment instalments, treatment fees, theatre and sport tickets, administration and service fees) are non-refundable.
If you opt to make a payment on behalf of another guest, you agree for the funds assigned to them during the transaction, to be subject to the “name change process”.
2.5 Your full package price may include a discount, agreed at the point of sale. Such discounts will only apply where all items are included, meaning that if you or a group member opt out of any items from the package, or make any amendments to the original package, the discount will be removed and package price will be recalculated.
2.6 All prices are inclusive of Value Added Tax (“VAT”) or similar sales tax.
2.7 As above, all administration and service fees are non-refundable and non-transferable. An administration of £15 will be charged per “Statement of Payments Received” that we are requested to produce. This will increase to £20 if requested within 14 days of travel or after departure. A late payment fee of £10 per person will be charged, for balances paid after the final payment date. If you require an extension to your deposit or final payment date, an administration fee of £10 will be charged per extension request.
3. CHANGES AND CANCELLATION BY US
3.1. IF WE CHANGE YOUR ARRANGEMENTS BEFORE DEPARTURE
We expect to be able to provide you with all the services we have confirmed to you in your Booking Confirmation. We plan arrangements in advance using independent, contracted partners, over whom we have no direct control. On occasion changes do have to be made and we reserve the right to make these at any time, however we will advise you as soon as possible. Most of these changes would be deemed “minor”, for example an accommodation change of the same or higher standard, or a change to the timing of an activity. However there are rare times when a change we deem to be “significant” may be required, for example, a change of booking location.
3.2 In the case of a significant change (see clause 3.1) before your departure we will aim to provide you with the following alternatives:
a) accepting alternative arrangements of similar or higher standard; or
b) accepting alternative arrangements of a lower standard together with a refund of the difference in price; or
c) cancel the arrangements affected with a full refund of all monies paid
3.3 We are not obligated to provide the alternatives listed in clause 3.2, when we are forced to make a significant change to your arrangements as a result of:
(a) matters outside of our control when clauses 7, 11 & 19 shall apply; or
(b) where your booking was accepted "subject to availability” or “on request”, and the arrangements are not available, when clauses 4.6 & 4.7 shall apply
A refund would not be payable if you accept any altered arrangements.
3.4 In the case of a significant change after your final balance is paid, compensation may be payable at our discretion. Any potential compensation would not be payable if the change occurs as a result of circumstances beyond our control, where clauses 7, 11 & 19 will apply.
4. CANCELLATIONS BY US
4.1 In the unlikely event we need to cancel your arrangements, we will notify you as soon as possible. If we cannot offer you a replacement, we will provide you with the following alternatives:
a) alternative arrangements of a lower standard together with a refund of the difference in price; or
b) cancel the arrangements affected with a full refund of all monies paid
4.2 We are not obligated to provide the alternatives listed in clause 4.1, when we are forced to cancel your arrangements as a result of:
(a) matters outside of our control when clauses 7, 11 & 19 shall apply; or
(b) we cancel as a result of your failure to pay your deposit or the full balance
or any other sum when due; or
(c) where your booking was accepted "subject to availability” or “on request”, and the arrangements are not available, when clauses 4.6 & 4.7 shall apply
4.3 In both cases outlined, compensation may be payable at our discretion, if you’re notified after your final balance has been paid. Any potential compensation would not be payable if the change occurs as a result of the following circumstances:
a) circumstances beyond our control (in which case clauses 7, 11 & 19 shall apply); or
b) we cancel as a result of your failure to pay your deposit or the full balance
or any other sum when due; or
c) where a minor change is made
d) where we make a significant change and you accept those altered arrangements;
e) where clause 4.6 & 4.7 apply
4.4 We reserve the right to cancel the booking due to your failure to pay by the set payment deadlines, with all monies paid being non-refundable. This may also incur cancellation charges from our partners.
4.5 We do not sell flights and, therefore, any flights or other travel arrangements you may book are not part of your contract with us. In the event that you experience any delay or other disruption to your flights, or other travel arrangements, we will make reasonable efforts to rearrange the activities that you have booked with us. However, we cannot be held liable for any refunds or compensation, in the event that such activities cannot be rearranged, or if you otherwise miss all or part of your trip, as a result.
4.6 Some packages shown on our website or Quote Hub can only be operated if a sufficient number of people book onto the group booking (“minimum number”). If this is applicable to your group, this will be stated prior to making your booking and will be on your booking confirmation. If there are insufficient people confirmed in your group at the final payment stage, we have the right to cancel this element or elements. Alternatively, a recalculation of package price may be required for each group member, in which scenario, we will inform you as soon as possible. Where we cancel due to insufficient numbers, no compensation or refunds will be payable. This includes any costs incurred by the group for any connected arrangements, including but not limited to, travel plans.
4.7 Where your booking or some elements of your booking could not be checked at the time of booking, this will be placed as “on request” or “freesale” The accommodation or activity in question is subject to availability or changes. If this is applicable to your group, this will be stated prior to making your booking and will be on your booking confirmation. Where we cancel due to the accommodation or activity not being available, no compensation or refunds will be payable. This includes any costs incurred by the group for any connected arrangements, including but not limited to, travel plans.
5. CHANGES BY YOU
5.1 IF YOU CHANGE YOUR BOOKING
If you want to change your arrangements in any way you must inform us in writing, via your Party Hub, as soon as possible. We will do our best to help you, although we cannot guarantee that we will always be able to do this, as changes are subject both to availability in real time, and to the Terms & Conditions of our partners.
5.2 Where we can accommodate a change, the package price and final payment date will be amended accordingly. There will be a charge for these additional services; please refer to the “administration fees” detailed in clause 22.
If you do wish to make changes, this will be in line with the price which applies on the day the change is made.
It may not be possible to transfer your booking to a start date more than three months after your original package start date without incurring cancellation charges.
Please refer to clause 6.2 for further information.
5.3 Any discount or special offer received, may be lost or altered if elements of your booking are changed or removed. Any discounts agreed on the original package price will only be applied to those group members participating in the full, original package.

5.5 Any change to your start date, destination, or accommodation must apply to all members of your group.
5.6 If you have booked any promotional set package or “superpackage”, this cannot be amended. If you wish to alter any part of the package, this would require cancellation of the existing booking and will be subject to cancellation charges (please refer to clause 6.2). The rebooking of the new arrangements will be charged at the price which applies on the day the change is made.
5.7 Additional group members can be added to your booking, subject to price and availability. If such a request is made after your final payment date, an administration fee will apply. Please refer to clause 22 for further details.

6. CANCELLATION BY YOU

The Group Leader may cancel up to 42 days prior to departure, however all monies paid at that point will be non-refundable.
Within 42 days of departure date, if some or all of your party cancel their place on the booking, we are entitled to treat your booking as cancelled in accordance with these Terms & Conditions and cancellation charges may apply (please refer to 6.2). These charges are based on the estimated cost of cancelling your arrangements and the expenses and losses we are likely to incur.
Amendments and cancellations can only be accepted in accordance with the Terms & Conditions of the provider of your arrangements.
6.2 In the event of cancellation(s) made by you, the following sets out the amounts payable to us. This details the period before departure within which written notification of cancellation is received by us, These cancellation charges are based on per person cancelling.
More than 42 days
Cancellation charge if you cancel - Retention of all monies paid on the booking
Less than 42 days
Cancellation charge if you cancel - Retention of all monies paid on the booking, plus we reserve the right to impose a further charge up to the value of the “full package price” for each person in the group, in addition to any additional fees or charges that may be imposed on us by our partners.
6.3 If you or any group member is unable to attend for any reason, monies paid against the space will be retained. However, where possible a new guest may be invited in their place (“name change”), subject to an administration fee of £30 per person (increasing to £50 within 14 days of departure).
We must receive this notification at least 14 days before departure for a name change to be guaranteed. Within 14 days of departure, we will do our best to action your request, but cannot guarantee that it will be possible. As such, an increased administration fee of £50 will be payable within this time period.
The original group member in question, must confirm they are happy for their place and funds to be used for the new guest.
When name changes are confirmed by us, amendment fees will be required as noted in clause 22, together with any extra costs we incur or are asked to pay in order to make the change. These extra costs will be required by the final payment date. If the change is requested after the final payment date, the outstanding amount is required as soon as possible.
If you are unable to find a replacement, cancellation charges as set out in clause 6.2 will apply in order to cover our estimated costs. Otherwise, no refunds will be given for passengers not travelling, or for unused services.
Any new guests agree to these Terms & Conditions and any other requirements which apply to the booking. If the full cost of the travel arrangements should already have been paid when the change is requested, this must be paid before the change can be finalised.
6.4 If any person on the booking cancels and you cannot fill that person's place via a name change, you may have to pay additional charges for your accommodation, such as under-occupancy supplements.
6.5 If you do cancel, you must still pay any amendment charges, which arose before the cancellation, and any required monies towards any pre-booked items or services.
6.6 We will not be liable to provide you with either a refund or any compensation in the event that you and/or your group fail to present yourself (either on time or at all) for a particular service or activity that you have booked, regardless of the reason for your failure to present yourself (either on time or at all); unless this failure arose as a direct result of our negligence or that of our employees acting in the course of their employment.

9. YOUR RESPONSIBILITIES
9.1 SPECIAL REQUESTS
If you have a special request, we will do our best to help, but we cannot guarantee it. Please advise us of your request at the time of booking and make sure that we are given as much detail as possible. If your special request is vital to your arrangements, it must be specifically agreed with us before or at the time you book. We will comply with any special request which we have specifically agreed and confirmed in writing. General confirmation that a special request has been noted or passed on to our partner(s) or the inclusion of a special request on your Booking Confirmation or on the acknowledgement of your booking or any other documentation is not confirmation that the request will be met.
Unless and until specifically confirmed in writing all special requests are subject to availability. If any additional cost is applicable, we will ask for immediate payment.
9.2 If your special requests have not been agreed in writing at the time of booking, and we are unable to meet these requirements after the booking has been processed, no refunds will be provided. Therefore it is vital that you ensure these are agreed in writing prior to placing the booking.
10. YOUR DOCUMENTATION
10.1 You are responsible for ensuring that you and all other persons included in your group satisfy all passport, visa, travel insurance and health certificate requirements. We accept no responsibility for any refusal of travel or entry into any destination or for any liabilities, losses, delays or expenses incurred through any irregularity in required documentation. If you have any queries with regard to documentation and insurance requirements, you must raise them with us well in advance. This includes sufficient photo ID for venues requiring proof of age, where we can accept no liability for refusal of entry, on this, or any other grounds.
10.2 In the event we are asked to re-issue tickets that have been lost, destroyed or stolen and we agree to do so, any charges incurred as a result of this will be payable by you.

11.1 Some of our packages involve strenuous activities. It is your responsibility to ensure that you and your group members have the levels of health and fitness required for any particularly strenuous activities.
11.2 You must provide us with full details of any existing medical, physical condition, disability or dietary requirements that may apply to any member of your group which affect your arrangements (in particular, any accommodation requirements) at the time of booking. If in our reasonable opinion, your chosen arrangements are not suitable for the medical, physical condition or disability or you are not travelling with someone who can provide all assistance that may be required, we have the right to refuse to accept the booking or the individual(s) in question may not be able to participate in certain events. In this scenario, we shall not be liable for any losses or compensation arising. If you do not give us full details of any medical or physical condition or disability at the time of booking, we reserve the right to cancel the booking when we become aware of the full details, if in our reasonable opinion, the arrangements are not suitable. If we cancel in this situation, monies paid towards the event will be non-refundable and cancellation charges as set out in clause 6.2 must be paid by the individual(s) concerned.
11.3 It is your responsibility to inform us of any group member’s height or weight that may not meet the requirements of any activity.
12.1 It is your responsibility to make sure that you and your group have suitable insurance in place prior to travel for any UK or abroad destination, We cannot be held responsible for any costs incurred as a result of failing to have suitable insurance in place prior to travel.
If you are unable to attend all or some aspect of your package for any reason, and you have the appropriate cover in place, we will be happy to provide you with a “Statement of Payments Received” to support an insurance claim. Please note that we are unable to confirm or deny your participation in the event. Please also note the letter is subject to a fee of £15 per letter (increasing to £20 within 14 days of travel or after departure).
12.2 If you participate in sports and activities whilst travelling, whether or not organised and arranged independently of us, it should be understood that participation is at the individual's own risk and it is your responsibility to ensure that such activities are covered by your insurance policy.
13.1 You must be responsible for the behaviour of yourself and your group, for the duration of the booking process and the arrangements themselves. We can refuse to accept you as a customer or to continue dealing with you and/or any other member of your party by terminating your arrangements due to any of the following;
a) if behaviour is or is likely to be, in our reasonable opinion, or in the reasonable opinion of any partner/activity/venue, or other person in authority, disruptive, upsetting or dangerous to yourself or anyone else or
b) if you or any member of your party have caused or are likely to cause damage to property, persons or venues. This includes but is not limited to the possession and consumption of illegal substances by any members of the group, which is strictly prohibited during all aspects of the itinerary.
We will not pay any refund, compensation or other sum or any costs or expenses incurred by you if we have to terminate your arrangements due to such unacceptable behaviour. In this situation we will then have no further responsibility for you or any other member of your party (including any return travel arrangements). We also reserve the right to pass the contact details of the Group Leader to the partner(s) in location, in order that they can attempt to recoup any charges they deem to be due in relation to damages caused by you, in line with clause 20 below.
13.2 Please be aware that if you have accommodation included in your package, you are likely to be charged a refundable security bond on arrival. The amount and method of payment are at the discretion of the accommodation partner, as are any reasonable deductions for any damage or disturbances incurred directly by your group, during your stay.
14. ITINERARIES & ACTIVITY TIMINGS AND LOCATIONS
Our itineraries are designed for you to achieve maximum enjoyment from your arrangements. The general advice and timings provided must be adhered to at all times and failure to do so may result in your group being unable to participate in particular activities. We cannot be held liable should you fail to follow our advice or adhere to our planned timings. You are required to contact us immediately if any information which appears on the Booking Confirmation and/or “Final Itinerary” or elsewhere appears to be incorrect or incomplete, as it may not be possible to make changes further down the line.
Please note on occasion, certain activities such as (for example) bubble football, will not confirm the venue until around one week prior to the activity commencing, as advised in your Booking Confirmation. As a result your itinerary may be sent without the location which will be confirmed to you nearer to the date of the activity in question taking place.
15. ACCOMMODATION AND OCCUPANCY SUPPLEMENTS
We always try to place groups in twin rooms where available, however if these are not available you may be in double, triple or quad rooms.
When a group is booked into accommodation and there is a change in group size, we will, where possible, try to place the booking into alternative room types to avoid any extra costs. Where this is not possible, room supplement charges may apply, to cover the full cost(s) of the room booked and these will be specific to the accommodation type and room configuration booked. For example, if there is only one person in a twin room, or if there are seven people in an eight-person apartment, the additional space will need to be paid for.
Alternatively, we will sometimes need to recalculate your package price in line with the new group size. We will always try to offer the cheapest option to keep costs down for you.

Your booking is subject to our standard Terms and Conditions so please ensure that you read these before proceeding.
24.1 In addition to clauses 1 to 23 above, “online package bookings” are subject to the following additional Terms & Conditions. An online package booking is either custom built by you or pre-built and purchased directly by placing payment online. Within the 48 business hours after placing payment online, these additional Terms & Conditions apply.
24.2 Please note that your package is purchased on a “request” basis, which means that availability for each element could not be checked with our partners prior to you placing payment online. This means that whilst we hope and expect to be able to provide the itinerary you have requested, the individual elements of your package are subject to change, availability and price.
24.3 Your booking will be confirmed when you receive your booking confirmation in your Party Hub. We aim to provide this, where possible, within 24 business hours for bookings made Monday to Friday, and 48 business hours for bookings made on Saturdays, Sundays and public holidays.
24.4 Activity dates and start times will be allocated to you by your Event Planner in due course, unless you have requested a specific date and/or start time in writing, via the ‘notes’ field, when placing your payment. Please note that some activities have a pre-assigned start time, which will be made apparent to you when selecting the activity.
Your Event Planner will aim to secure the selected activities for your requested dates and times, however due to external demand, this may not always be possible. Confirmation of the dates and times we have been able to secure for you will be outlined in your booking confirmation. If your specified dates and times are unavailable, your Event Planner will aim to secure the closest possible alternative. If it is deemed necessary, your Event Planner will contact you with any significant date and time changes, before securing the arrangements with our partner(s).
24.5 In line with clauses 1.1, 1.2 and 1.3, accommodation room types and rates are not guaranteed until your Event Planner can confirm these with the provider(s) directly, so on rare occasions, room types and rates may change, and we will contact you as soon as possible to inform you of the amended details and/or price. If these do not suit your group’s requirements, we will look to amend your accommodation reservation subject to availability, re-quoting your package price accordingly.
24.6 A binding contract comes into existence only when we send a booking confirmation to you via your Party Hub. Any prior acknowledgement of your booking simply indicates that we are dealing with your booking request and does not constitute confirmation of it.
You must check your booking confirmation carefully, along with any other documentation we may send you, and contact us immediately, within 24 hours, if any information appears to be incorrect or incomplete, as it may not be possible to make changes further down the line.
We regret that we cannot accept any responsibility if we are not notified of any inaccuracies in your booking confirmation or any document we may send you, within 24 business hours of our sending it out. If you do not contact us within this timeframe, we will make the fair assumption that you are happy to proceed with your booking as detailed. Whilst we will do our best to rectify any inaccuracies highlighted outside of this timeframe, you will be responsible for any costs incurred from such rectifications.
24.7 Prior to placing your deposit, it’s important that you read the specific Booking Conditions.
