TERMS & CONDITIONS
Experience Days Pty Ltd. is an agent for selected courses and experiences across South Africa that appear on this website. When you purchase or activate a voucher or buy a course or experience from Experience Days you become legally bound by these terms and conditions. Please do not proceed and purchase or activate a voucher or complete a booking until you have read, understood and accepted these terms and conditions.
The prices displayed on our website are correct to the best of our knowledge and maintained on a daily basis. Prices of courses and experiences may vary throughout the year. In the event of an order being placed against an accidental incorrect price, we will endeavour to inform the purchaser of the error within 14 days of the purchase being made, we will allow the purchaser to either cancel the booking or choose to pay the additional difference in price.
Where the duration of a course or experience is mentioned on our website and marketing material or by a member of our staff this is an approximate guide to the length of time you should expect to spend at the venue. The duration may vary slightly from venue to venue. When you are taking the course or experience as part of a group there may be some waiting time involved. Where possible we will outline the time spent at the venue separately to the time spent on the experience itself, although this is not always possible.
3. Descriptions and Images
All descriptions contained on our website and in our marketing material are correct at the time of going to press. However, please note that descriptions are generalised as we offer similar activities and experiences across different venues which may vary in content across different Experience Providers and locations. Descriptions may be updated throughout the year as courses and experiences change. The images used in all promotional literature to illustrate courses and experiences, particularly those that take place at more than one location, are used as an indication only.
All experiences and courses are offered subject to the availability of dates, vehicles, facilities and staff. Bookings should be made as far in advance as possible especially during peak times such as weekends and school holidays. We suggest that if you plan to purchase a voucher for a date at short notice, you contact us to ensure there is still availability before completing the transaction. You should not make any travel or accommodation arrangements in connection with the course or experience until you have received your booking confirmation from Experience Days or the Experience Provider. Where specific elements of the course / experience such as vehicles are not available due to mechanical breakdown, the Experience Provider reserves the right to make reasonable substitutions on the day. If this is not possible the Experience Provider reserves the right to cancel the course / experience at short notice.
Certain courses and experiences provided by suppliers are subject to minimum age, health or other requirements. In most cases, these details are listed on our website and at the time of booking, although they are subject to change at any time. It is the purchaser's and/or redeemer's responsibility to check that the restrictions are met. Once you have confirmed a booking you are not eligible for a refund if you are forced to cancel because the minimum requirements are not met. Details of restrictions and requirements are set out on our website under the products’ page. Please read them carefully.
Many experiences and courses we offer are weather dependent. If bad weather affects a booking it will be rescheduled by the Experience Provider or us at no cost to you and there will be no refunds. There can be no guarantee that a particular date will not be withdrawn due to adverse weather conditions. We strongly recommend that you contact the Experience Provider on the day before you depart for your experience. In the event of cancellation, Experience Days will not be held liable for the cost of lost insurance premiums, travel expenses, pre-booked accommodation costs or any other costs incurred.
We ask you to leave plenty of time to get to the venue. Many of the courses and experiences we offer require a safety briefing and it is essential that the participant attends the briefing otherwise they will not be able to participate. No alcohol or drugs can be consumed before any of the courses or experiences we offer. The staff at the Experience Provider reserve the right to refuse an activity to persons suspected to be under the influence of alcohol and / or drugs. Where the experience requires the wearing of safety equipment such as a crash helmet or a lifejacket this is mandatory and there are no exceptions. Other safety precautions will be advised in your confirmation details. Each venue employs professional instructors who reserve the right to end an experience or course or offer alternative tuition if they believe the participant may endanger themselves or other members of the public.
8. Experience Providers and Liability
Although Experience Days has sought to select highly experienced Experience Providers offering courses and experiences, Experience Days shall not be responsible for the safety standards or the quality or delivery of the course or experience, or any loss or damage suffered by you whilst participating in the course or experience for which the Experience Provider shall be solely responsible. By purchasing or redeeming a voucher, you acknowledge that the course or experience is dependent on certain factors beyond the control of Experience Days and agree that neither Experience Days nor any associated Experience Provider shall be liable for the cancellation, postponement or alteration of any course or experience for reasons beyond its reasonable control including weather-related reasons, mechanical failure or otherwise. We do not undertake any technical examination of equipment, facilities or services in order to minimise personal risk. In the event of mechanical machinery breakdown you should expect reasonable substitutions without notice. The total liability of Experience Days for any claim whatsoever in connection with the course or experience voucher or any course or experience shall be limited to the price paid for the voucher or booking. Experience Days' Experience Providers are located at destinations across the South Africa. We are continually adding locations but occasionally may need to stop featuring some centres/locations.
9. Refunds and Cancellations
Sometimes the Experience Provider has to cancel a course or experience for reasons beyond their control, such as the weather or mechanical breakdown, or because minimum requirements are not met such as a minimum group of people. We regret that such eventualities are outside of our control, in these circumstances, Experience Days is unable to reimburse travel, accommodation or any other expenses you may incur in relation to the cancelled course or experience. A location and/or course or experience may be terminated without warning during the lifetime of the voucher on these occasions an equivalent or alternative location and/or course or experience will be offered. If this is not suitable credit will be offered but no cash refunds will be made.
a) Vouchers within 14 days of receipt.
You have the right to a full refund within 14 days of receipt.
b) Vouchers after 14 days of receipt
No refunds will be made on vouchers more than 14 days after the date of purchase. However, the voucher is still free to be activated online (if within 12 months of the purchase date) and the credit can be used against any of our entire product range.
c) Activated (Redeemed) Vouchers
Once a voucher has been activated & a booking voucher (EX number) created no refund can be made.
d) Bookings made through Experience Days (i.e. when a specific date is confirmed by us online or by phone and you have an EX Number)

Should you need to re-schedule or cancel a booking you have already made, we will always do our best to help with the Experience Provider. If you are not sure when this applies, please enquire before booking. Experience Providers sometimes have to cancel their activity for reasons out of their control. If this is the case you will need to contact the same Experience Provider and re-arrange another date. Refunds cannot be given in these circumstances.
e) Bookings made directly with the Experience Provider (when a specific date is confirmed by the Experience Provider) As policies do vary from venue to venue, please note that cancellation or re-scheduling may not always be possible.

All refunds will be made to the person who purchased the voucher or booking and the monies will be refunded directly via the payment method used.

We will respond within 28 days of receiving your written complaint to firstname.lastname@example.org Experience Days undertakes to thoroughly investigate all customer complaints that have been highlighted with its Experience Providers on the day of the experience, failure to highlight issues on the day of the experience or course may jeopardise investigations and result in an unsatisfactory outcome.

The very nature of some of the services that we promote as an agent means that they are dangerous.

We require our Experience Providers to hold appropriate and valid public liability insurance before we will promote their services as an agent and we make no warranty or representation about their course or experiences whatsoever. Responsibility rests with you to make independent enquiries with the supplier and other third parties as to the need to acquire your own insurance cover.
