Coronavirus Policy for new bookings.
Should you event be directly affected by the Coronavirus and the venues in your booking can no longer accept your group, you have the following options.
- Rearrange for Free to a new date. *subject to availability
- Change affected activities to viable options.
- Cancel and receive a refund minus initial £20pp deposits.
We are working with suppliers to adapt the running of activities to become Covid secure and abiding by the current government restrictions of the 22nd September 2020. This may mean groups having to be split up into sub-groups of 6 people to participate in certain activities. We would appreciate this understanding and compromise from our customers.
It is more important than ever to have comprehensive travel insurance in place. With a rise in cases, should you test positive and can no longer attend your booking, any refunds would be a case for your Travel insurance company. Not Hangover Weekends or the end Suppliers. HW's can supply any evidence required to claim through your Travel insurance.
The initial deposits taken from your group go towards various costs implicated in booking with Hangover Weekends. We have to insure each group member against financial failure, there are transaction fees for all payments made via our platform, and staff costs to manage your account, secure events with supplies etc. Under normal circumstance we do not charge customers for the above costs, however those are costs that HW cannot recoup. Placing a booking during the Coronavirus pandemic, you as the customer, understand that these deposits, under no circumstances, can be refunded.
Groups who booked for a 2020 date and have been subsequently moved to 2021. Options 1,2 and 3 above are still valid. Please speak to your Event organiser to discuss any other options.
What we have done during the pandemic?
We had hundreds of groups affected this year by the coronavirus pandemic, we were always available via phone, email and Whatsapp. We kept in constant contact with our customers to keep everyone up to date with the situation and worked swiftly to rearrange groups where possible. Unfortunately a lot of bookings had to be cancelled and we refunded hundreds of thousands of pounds.
Is my money safe?
Yes, we are fully insured with Towergate financial failure insurance / Protected Trust Services. We are aware that customers are rightly concerned about booking with a Tour operator / Travel agent during this time. However should anything happen to Hangover Weekends, your money would be returned in full, from the insurance company. Therefore for any current bookings, please continue with peace of mind, to make payments as per usual.
