Should payment not be made, Suffolk River Trips reserve the right to terminate the booking and recover from you any additional costs incurred by this. All other terms and conditions apply, and Suffolk River Trips will not offer any refund if a Group Booking/Private Charter fail to arrive on time for a time specific booking and the conditions do not permit a delayed start. We will endeavour to try and re–schedule the trip if possible but we are restricted to tidal conditions and this is not always possible.

Any outstanding balance must be paid to cover loss of income incurred by non-attendance.

8. Liability

Suffolk River Trips accept no liability for any loss, damage, cost or expense or any consequential or indirect loss or damage of any kind. While we try and ensure all prices, times and dates quoted by our website or publications are accurate, errors may occur and we cannot be held liable for this.

9. Bad Weather

Suffolk River Trips often still run if the weather is rainy, cloudy or otherwise inclement. Occasionally very high winds may call for a shorter journey or cancellation.

If you choose not to take the trip because of the weather and boats are running a normal service, you will forfeit your ticket and will not be entitled to a refund.
