Here is what you need to know, there is always the bit when you need to know something lol
You book in the week before by using text, FB, Messenger, the Contact Page, once you have booked on, you have committed yourself to the activity. Once you are sure you want to go and have contacted auld Norberto, you then transfer the day’s activity money. This can be to pay for your seat on the minibus / or other arranged form of transport and /or entrance fee.
Unfortunately, coach companies and other parties like to be paid the agreed amount regardless you turn up or not, sorry, it is the way of the world. SO, the BIG MESSAGE IS – ‘don’t book unless you are coming’ and if you fancy along lie in bed that morning and do not want to go, your seat / coach money will be used for the coach / activity costs, you cannot have it back sorry, it’s gone!!!
