Booking Terms & Conditions (as at 01/11/19)

For us, it is very important that our customer’s package will be fun and a great success in every aspect. We promise that we will, as per our high-performance promise, take care of our programme participants at all times, ensuring that they have a safe and enjoyable experience. The following are our booking terms and conditions – please be sure to read them carefully and contact us via sales@psaacademies.com should you have any questions on them.

  1. Our Benefits 

Our benefits correspond to the description on our website, as well as the travel documents that you will be issued with following your completed booking, including the confirmation email, pdf ticket, welcome pack and any other relevant documentation issued. Programmes are subject to alteration for reasons of safety, inclement weather or customer numbers. We always provide a suitable replacement in such circumstances.

Customers must inform us of any special requirements that their player has prior to the participant’s arrival, and we will do everything possible to accommodate these but cannot give any guarantee without sufficient notice. Any alterations or additions to bookings with Klub Group Ltd., trading as PSA Academies, may be made in writing to sales@psaacademies.com.

All prices shown are also inclusive of VAT, calculated under the Tour Operators Margin Scheme. Due to this special VAT scheme, we are unable to issue invoices showing an exact VAT breakdown and customers will not be able to reclaim VAT against charges from Klub Group Ltd., trading as PSA Academies. Should the VAT regulations change after the time of booking, we reserve the right to surcharge or refund the consequent price difference.

  1. Booking and Contract

Customers enter into a contract, which is binding, as soon as they receive the booking confirmation via email having paid their minimum 40% deposit. The “contractual partner” is the lead adult/parent/legal guardian person named within and responsible for the booking.

  1. Full Payment

For any bookings made with a 40% deposit payment, the final balancing payment is due no later than 60 days before that start date of the package programme. If the customer makes a booking within 60 days of the package start date, then payment must be made in full at the time of the booking. Failure to make full payment before the package start date will likely result in your place being withdrawn and resold. Any bank charges must be met by the person making the booking.

  1. Cancellation by the Customer

Any payment made towards a booking package is non-refundable and will not be returned by Klub Group Ltd., trading as PSA Academies, in the event of a cancellation. All packages booked with Klub Group Ltd, trading as PSA Academies, include travel insurance as standard via our provider Endsleigh and the cost of cancelled packages should be reclaimable, subject to a limited excess amount, via this cover.

  1. Cancellation by PSA Academies

In the event that the behaviour of any customer/participant clearly contravenes our programme rules/the terms of your contract and negatively impacts the delivery of the package programme, Klub Group Limited, trading as PSA Academies, reserves the right to immediately cancel the contract. In this case, any claims for compensation via travel insurance will be null and void. Additional costs, such as for transfers & accompanied or unaccompanied flights, will be at the full and sole expense of the customer. We also reserve the right to charge the customer for any damages/breakages that the participant has been positively identified as having deliberately or wantonly caused.

In the unlikely event that we have to make a major change to the package, we will attempt to offer a suitable alternative but, in the event, that this is not possible, we will offer a full refund, less the travel insurance premium paid to a third-party provider.

If the delivery of the package is adversely affected due to circumstances beyond our reasonable control in advance of the package start date, including but not limited to war, riot, civil commotion, terrorism, act of God, industrial dispute, Government action, epidemic disease, adverse weather or natural disaster, Klub Group Ltd., trading as PSA Academies, as well as the customer, are within their rights to terminate the contract.

  1. Minimum Numbers

A minimum number of participants need to book each package to enable the advertised package to take place. If this number is not achieved and we have to cancel the package, we will tell customers immediately and, in any event, not less than 6 weeks before departure. Where we cancel for this reason, customers are entitled to a replacement package on an alternative date or a full refund of the cost of the package, less the travel insurance premium paid to a third-party provider.
