G.O.L.D. and associates will ensure that information will be accurate, and considered best practice at the time, however G.O.L.D. does not accept any responsibility or liability for loss or damage resulting from information been used away from the course.

G.O.L.D. can give no guarantee or warranty as to the state or condition of properties of the owners.

G.O.L.D. is insured for public liability cover for the course & all coaches working on it. No insurance cover is included for participants. You are strongly advised to ensure you have your own suitable insurance cover in place.

The booking is made on the understanding that the course is available to the customer on the dates stated. If for any reason beyond G.O.L.D.’s control, (e.g. extreme weather, illness, withdrawal of use of land / water) G.O.L.D. will endeavor to provide an alternate course to the customer but cannot guarantee that such will be provided and if such cannot be found or is not suitable for the customer then all monies paid by the customer shall be returned in full,


G.O.L.D. shall not be liable for any consequential loss, expense, inconvenience, or otherwise resulting from such unavailable or unsuitability  and the customer shall have no claim against them. The customer shall advise G.O.L.D. within seven days of being offered an alternate course whether or not it is acceptable. If the alternative course is more expensive G.O.L.D. reserves the right to charge the difference in cost.

G.O.L.D. does not hold an Adventure Activities License to work with unaccompanied young people. Under-18’s may attend but must be actually accompanied by a parent/legal guardian on any course. (Sorry, but supervision by another responsible adult is not acceptable).

Submission of a signed booking form, internet sale, or telephone booking with deposit paid by cash or cheque, will be deemed to be acceptance of these conditions and a confirmation of the details and conditions on the booking form. The person who signs the booking form warrants that he/she is authorised to agree to G.O.L.D.’s terms and conditions and is acting on behalf of the person or substituted persons who join the course at a later date. One customer per booking form, if less than 18 at the time of the course signed by their parent/legal guardian.

If for any reason the customer is not satisfied with the course, the company must be contacted within 5 working days so any issues can be rectified immediately. Under no circumstances will G.O.L.D’s liability exceed the price paid for the package.

The deposit or full amount is required with the booking form, if the booking form is submitted eight weeks or less before the commencement of the package then the full payment should be sent with the booking form. If G.O.L.D. cannot accept the booking, the full amount shall be returned within 14 days. If a booking is accepted, the customer becomes liable for the balance of the payment for the full period of the package, which must be paid eight weeks prior to the start of the course. When the balance of payment is paid, final details of the package, with administration directions will be forwarded. The brochure prices are cash prices. All deposits are non-refundable. If the customer cannot attend the course and has to cancel within eight weeks of commencement of the course they forfeit the balance paid or are liable for the balance to be paid. Cancellation is to be made in writing with the same Customer signature that made the booking. If there are any additional water access fees/climbing wall fees are payable by the Participant.
