Terms and Conditions

BOOKING

A booking is only confirmed once full payment has been received. Full payment for the course is required 4 weeks before the start date of the course. Payments are accepted via PayPal or BACS.

To finalise your booking you must complete the Medical Declaration and Informed Consent forms.

In the event that the booking fee is not paid prior to the start of the course, EHMT will view this as a cancellation by you.

In the event you are late for the event and miss the start time, no refund will be offered.

CANCELLATION POLICY

Cancellation by client (You)

  • 4 weeks notice or more – 75% refund
  • Between 2 to 4 weeks notice – 50% refund
  • Less than 2-week notice – no refund
  • Alternatively, you can transfer your booking to an alternative date within the same calendar year if available. A £10 administrative is charged for this service
  • If you are unable to book an alternative date I will attempt to resell your original course place and if successful will reimburse you the full amount (less a £10 administrative fee)

Cancellation by EHMT

Whilst every attempt is made to ensure that planned events take place as scheduled, EHMT will notify you of cancellation as soon as possible if it is necessary due to dangerous and/or unsuitable conditions for the event activity. In the event of cancellation you will be offered the choice of a full refund or a place on an alternative course. EHMT can not be held liable for any accommodation / travelling costs due to cancellation.

COURSE ALTERATIONS

While every reasonable effort will be made to run courses as planned, EHMT reserves the right to make changes to the course due to weather conditions, participant fitness or as a result of risk assessments on the day. All participants should be aware that minor alterations to routes or timings may sometimes be necessary. No refund will be issued if you decide not to participate due to poor weather conditions.

RISKS

My courses take place in the outdoors, in a hills and mountain environment. There are risks involved in any outdoor activity on rocky and uneven ground. By booking a course with EHMT, you are accepting these risks and agree to submit a Medical Declaration Form and an Informed Consent Form after booking.

British Mountaineering Council Participation Statement

By booking a course you are aware and accept these risks and will be responsible for your own actions and involvement. Emma Holland Mountain Training will teach you how to identify and manage these risks, but can never completely remove them.”
