All Contracts and transactions relating to the provision of the Services by the Company whether verbal or in writing, are subject to these Conditions which shall be deemed to be incorporated into any contract between the Company and the Client. The Client is obliged to pay the non-refundable deposit amount requested. If the Company accepts the Client's reservation, it shall issue an invoice for the amount to be paid. The issue of the invoice/receipt shall constitute the contract.
The price shall be paid as follows:
a) A deposit of 50%, unless otherwise stated at the time of booking, must be paid to the Company within ten working days from the date of booking.

In the event of the price, or any part thereof being outstanding after the due date for payment, the Company at their sole discretion reserves the right to cancel the booking and resell the services.
Cancellation or alterations of bookings will be accepted at the sole discretion of the Company.

Where the Company is willing and able to accept alterations or amendments, a £25 administration charge may be added to final balance for each amendment made to the original booking, save where the amendment increases the size of the original booking.
