Terms & Conditions


By booking an overnight trip with SUP & Social and/or Paddleboarding London (hereafter referred to us ‘us’ ‘we’ or S&S/PDLDN) you agree to the following terms and conditions, as well as any additional T&Cs imposed by our local hosts, which will be given at the time of booking.


All deposits are non-refundable.  You are able to transfer your deposit and/or trip space to another person at any time.  In the unlikely event that we and/or our local hosts are unable to run the trip as planned due to government restrictions, and we are unable to reschedule for another date/time which is suitable for you, you can request a full refund.


If you are unable to attend because you have tested positive, our normal cancellation policies apply as above.

You must have the appropriate travel insurance at the time of booking. Please check that your coverage includes participating in water sports.


If you are unable to attend the date you booked, you will need to cancel your booking. If the trip is fully booked, we can offer that space for resale – if the spot is booked you are entitled to a refund less a small admin fee. If you wish to transfer your space to another person there is no fee charged.


All guests must have appropriate travel insurance.


Adverse Weather

As with any outdoor activity, we need to remain flexible and adaptable. We will always endeavour to carry out the itineraries provided at the time of booking, however we may need to make changes to accommodate the weather conditions. No refunds or rescheduling will be offered for changes to the itinerary.

If we are required to cancel your trip due to adverse and unsafe weather conditions, we will reschedule your trip for a later date or convert your booking to credit, valid for 12 months.

If we are required to cancel due to weather, we will not be responsible for any costs incurred from travel arrangements, other accommodation etc. We recommend that you book flexible travel options and have appropriate travel insurance.

Except where otherwise expressly stated in these Booking Conditions we will not be liable or pay you compensation if our contractual obligations to you are affected by “Force Majeure”.

Payment for any loss or damage must be made to us or our Supplier/Local Host at the time that it occurs or as soon as is reasonably practicable thereafter.

13.2 If the cost of the loss or damage is not known at the time, we will reasonably estimate it and if this reasonable estimate exceeds the amount paid, you must pay the difference once known, and if it is less, the difference will be refunded to you. You will also be responsible for, and agree to indemnify us, in respect of any claim subsequently made against us and all costs incurred by us (including our own and any other party’s full legal costs) arising from your actions.

13.3 You are also responsible for the behaviour of yourself and other members of your party. We can refuse to accept you as a customer or refuse to continue dealing with you and/or any other member of your party by terminating your holiday arrangements if yours or their behaviour is or is likely to be, in our reasonable opinion or in the reasonable opinion of our Suppliers/Principal, disruptive, upsetting or dangerous to yourself or anyone else, or if you or any member of your party have caused or are likely to cause damage to property. In these circumstances, we will not pay any refund, compensation or other sum whatsoever or any costs or expenses incurred by you if we have to terminate your travel arrangements due to such unacceptable behaviour. In this situation we will have no further responsibility for you or any other member of your party (including any return travel arrangements).

Your contract will be with the operator or provider of that excursion, tour or activity and not with us. We are not responsible for the provision of the excursion, tour or activity or anything that may happen during the course of its provision by the operator. We do not accept any liability in relation to any such excursion, tour or activity and these Booking Conditions do not apply to them.
