Changes and Cancellations by You

Cancellation under the Distance Selling Regulations

If you are a consumer and make a booking via our website or by telephone, you have a legal right to cancel a Contract under the Consumer Contracts (Information, Cancellation & Additional Charges) Regulations 2013 (‘Distance Selling Regulations’) during the cooling off period of 14 calendar days from date of purchase. This means that during the relevant period if you change your mind or for any other reason you decide you do not want to enrol on a course, you can notify us of your decision to cancel the Contract and receive a refund. Advice about your legal right to cancel the Contract under these regulations is available from your local Citizens’ Advice Bureau or Trading Standards office. A cancellation form is available on request.

If you exercise your legal right to cancel under the Distance Selling Regulations, you will receive a full refund of the price you paid when booking and we will process the refund due to you as soon as possible and, in any case, within 30 calendar days of the day on which you gave us notice of cancellation.

Your legal right to cancel a Contract starts from the date when you purchase a course or other product/service from us – which is when the Contract between us is formed. You have a period of 14 (fourteen) calendar days in which you may cancel the booking, starting from the day after the day when the booking is made. If this period ends on A public holiday, then the period will be extended until the next working day.

If your course is due to start within the cancellation period, then your legal right to cancel is as follows:

If your course (online or practical workshop) has started and ended during the cancellation period, then your legal right to cancel will not apply

If your course has started but is due to end after the cancellation period, then your legal right to cancel still applies. However, you will have to pay a proportion of the course fee which we will base on the total price of the course and the period of the course from the start date to the date of cancellation.

Online courses commence from the date that you receive your login details or receive the product.

Other rights of Cancellation.

We understand that occasionally, due to unforeseen circumstances, applicants may need to alter or cancel their arrangements. In these cases, every effort will be made to accommodate the change, although please be aware that it may not always be possible. There may also be a delay in enrolling you onto an alternative course. To request an alteration or to cancel your course booking you must send a letter or email of cancellation, together with an alternative booking (where applicable) to our customer service team.

Any alterations and/or cancellations are at our discretion and are subject to an administration fee, as outlined below.

Where you wish to transfer to an alternative course and we are willing to accommodate your request then any fees paid, including the deposit, will be transferred to the alternative course;


Where you wish to cancel your course booking but do not wish to enrol on an alternative course, where approved by us in writing (at our discretion), we will refund you the balance of the fees paid, less the deposit.

The following administration charges will apply to all cancellations or alterations. No cancellations will be refunded after the 1st December 2020.

Failure to attend or cancellation of an exam (all courses) will be liable to an administration fee of £150.00.

Changes to workshop attendances will be liable to administration fee of £150, details will be confirmed to you when requesting the change. Please contact our Customer Services to discuss further.

In cases where a refund of fees is due, this will be returned to you (at our election) either by cheque or a direct refund on to the credit/debit card used as the original method of payment.

The administration fee will be deducted from the amount refunded. We will process the refund due to you as soon as possible and, in any case, within 30 calendar days of the day on which you gave us notice of cancellation.

If you wish to transfer courses more than once, we reserve the right to charge an administration fee in respect of each individual transfer and/or alteration.

We reserve the right to make additional charges on cancellation to cover costs incurred by us in respect of course materials, online learning registrations and/or tutor time. You will be notified of any charges that may be applicable on cancellation.


Changes and cancellations by us

If circumstances arise that are beyond our control, it may be necessary from time to time to change/cancel course dates, content, venues and prices from those published. Whilst we will make every effort to transfer your booking to the next available course at your preferred venue, it should be noted that we will not be held liable for any costs/losses incurred as a result of any such changes.

Payment Terms

These are “pay in full” at the time of purchase or external third-party finance agreement. Payment plans may be offered in certain circumstances. In this instance the final payment will be due no later than than 1st December 2020.

Consequences of Failure to Pay

If payment is not made within the time limits set out above, this will be a breach of contract by the client entitling Newquay Activity Centre to treat the contract as at an end and reallocate the bookings and/or tickets without notice to the client.

In the event of Newquay Activity Centre treating the contracts as at an end Newquay Activity Centre shall be entitled to retain all sums already paid by the client, and the full balance, if any, of the price of the booking shall become immediately payable by the client to Newquay Activity Centre. This is without prejudice to Newquay Activity Centre rights to claim damages from the client in respect of any loss suffered by Newquay Activity Centre.

Refunds will be made within 30 days of receipt of a correct cancellation notice. The exception to this is if you have accessed the course (online or practical workshop) or any other course/product in which case you will not be entitled to a refund or cooling off period of any kind.

Once the Buyer registers for the event or purchases the product or programme, Newquay Activity Centre makes extensive arrangements and investments while anticipating their tuition and attendance, and, in the case of their cancellation, incurs significant administration hassles, expenses, and loss of business. Given this fact we do not accept cancellations or issue refunds beginning 14 days after Buyer has registered for the event or purchased the Programme whatsoever.

Assessment deferrals

If a student refers their assessment there will be an admin fee of £150 to be reassessed at a later date. All resits of the practical assessment are subject to availability.

If assessment amendments or resits are required, students may contact [email protected] with any changes to assessment dates so that Newquay Activity Centre can update registers, inform tutors and arrange for the amendment fee to be charged. The change will be registered on receipt of payment of said charge.

Attendance of Practical Workshops:

  • Once your date is confirmed your course or programme is non- transferable and non- refundable.
  • Under certain reasonable circumstances, a request to change the date once will be considered by Newquay Activity Centre and at its sole discretion and if agreed will be subject to a £150 administration fee.
  • All variations are subject to availability and at the discretion of Newquay Activity Centre.

Alterations to advertised packages

All advertised packages are subject to availability.

Every reasonable effort will be made to adhere to the advertised packages; however, any packages may be altered, or dates changed either before or after confirmation of the booking. Where such alterations, omissions or changes of date occur prior to the confirmation of the booking, Newquay Activity Centre Limited accepts no contractual liability. Where such alterations or changes of dates occur after confirmation of the booking, Newquay Activity Centre agrees to use endeavours as it considers to be reasonable to make alternative packages available.

Cooling Off Period

This agreement shall be voided if you advise us in writing, prior to the 1st December, that you no longer wish to receive Newquay Activity Centre Services and/or products by delivering or sending (including by electronic mail) a cancellation notice to Newquay Activity Centre Limited.
