Croyde Surf Hire
HIRE CANCELLATION & REFUND POLICY
In the event that you need to cancel your booked Surf Hire Equipment for whatever reason we will refund 75% of your payment provided that you cancel at least 24 hrs before the Hire is due to commence. We cannot issue refunds/partial refunds with less than 24hr notice. Cancellation prior to a Bank Holiday Weekend however will require 7 days notice. Alternatively a credit note for the whole amount may be issued against future use (valid for 1 year) at the managers dissgression.
No Refunds will be given for Surf Hire which is not collected due to traffic conditions. For the sake of clarity this includes instances where someone parks in a Car Park (Eg Saunton) and then refuse to leave again! Hire should be collected from the shop before selecting which beach and which car park you intend to visit.. Free Roof Rax loan can be added to your order at no extra charge. Booked Hire Equipment will remain waiting for collection until the end of the booked period.
We cannot offer refunds for acts of nature that are out of our control, ie; if the surf goes flat or conditions turn unfavourable. A credit note may or may not be issued dependant to the circumstance and managers digression.
FYI. Covid restictions regarding foreign travel have increased the amount of traffic etc. and we advise you to leave home at least an hour before you think you need to. We will do our best to work with you during the current situation but our refund policy reflects the fact that uncollected booked Hire is reserved for you and therefore cannot be rehired for that period of time.
