Cancellation & Insurance Policy

In order to make things as fair as possible for both parties, I operate a simple and transparent Cancellation Policy. Payment for all courses is due at the time of booking, and all bookings are provisional until full payment has been received. I will give you a full refund of your whole course fee if you cancel for any reason, but only on the condition that you give me 28 full days' notice, counted back from the start date of your chosen course. If you cancel any time after that, for any reason, it will no longer be possible to issue a refund. For this reason I strongly recommend that you take out personal travel insurance which specifically covers you for cancellation costs. I recommend the British Mountaineering Council at

Risk Statement 

As a full member of the Association of Mountaineering Instructors I hold the highest level of instructional qualification in the UK. My continued membership of AMI is subject to strict requirements of professional currency and rulings of a Professional Standards Committee.  AMI Members have been trained and assessed to a very high level to provide you with a safe and enjoyable learning experience in the mountains. Part of that experience is the acceptance on your part that hillwalking is an inherently dangerous activity with a risk of serious injury or death, however remote. I will help you to understand and to reduce these risks but can never completely eliminate them. I will do my utmost to match your aspirations and abilities with the conditions. I strongly recommend that you take out your own insurance to cover you for personal accident or injury.
