Deposits, Payments & Cancellations.

  1. To secure any event, we require a 20% non returnable deposit. This must be paid via an electronic source (Paypal/Card.)
  2. The hirer is responsible for their guest’s actions/behaviour. If there is any damage, the cost of the repair, replacement or insurance excess charges are chargeable to the hirer, as is any loss of income & additional compensation due should the booth be unable to operate for future events.
  3. The customer will be notified of any chargeable damage within 3 working days, and the invoice for the damage must be settled within 30 days of invoice date.
  4. If damage is caused part way through an event that affects the operation of the booth, the booth will be closed immediately. There will be no refund of any hire fee.
  5. Full payment is due 30 days before the event.
  6. If there is still an outstanding amount on a booking 14 days or less before the event then the booking will be cancelled with no funds being returned.
  7. Payment of the deposit confirms the acceptance of these terms and conditions
  8. Advertised fees relate to events within mileage limits of Portsmouth & on a standard day. If the event is outside of these limits or to be held on a bank holiday or special day (eg New Years Eve) a surcharge will be added to the quote. All surcharges are calculated on a case by case basis.
  9. If the event is cancelled, the booking no longer required, or we are unable to operate we will require written confirmation. If this notice is provided prior to 30 days before the event, then any payment made over the deposit will be returned. If notice is given with less than 30 days until the event or the event is cancelled due to non payment (Clause 6) then no funds will be returned.
  10. Should an event need to be postponed for what ever reason, we will move the deposit to a new date- assuming the new date is no later than 12 months in the future & that the new date is available. Should the new date be unavailable then the cancellation policy in Clause 9 is implemented.
  11. If the cancellation is caused by us being unable to trade (eg. National emergency or personal injury,) then a credit note will be issued for the refund amount due. This can either be used against a new booking or can be repaid to you, from 30 days after we are able to restart trading.

Special offers & promotions

  1. Once a booking has been secured (eg Deposit paid) it can not be retrospectively adjusted to take into account any new promotions being offered. If you wish to take advantage of the offer instead, you will be required to cancel the booking- losing the initial deposit paid, and re-apply. Please be aware we may have had other enquiries for your chosen date, and if so they will be offered the date first.
  2. Only one offer can be applied to a booking. If there are multiple offers available, the most beneficial option to the customer will be applied.
