Terms & Conditions

Payments

A 50% non-refundable deposit is required to hold the booking, the reservation is made when the booking form and deposit has been received from you and the booking confirmed via email from Tweedguide. If the booking is made with less than one month before the fishing the full amount will be required to make the booking.

Deposits paid are not refundable, the balance for the package you have booked is payable one month before the start date of the fishing. Unless notice of cancellation is received before the balance payment date the balance will remain payable and due. It is your responsibility to take out travel insurance to cover the cost of sickness and unforeseen eventualities including weather conditions

If your trip has to be cancelled by Tweedguide, a full refund of monies paid by will be made, however, no further liability will be accepted by Tweed Guide.

Poor conditions on the fishing day

Bad weather, bad water conditions, e.g. lack of water or lack of fish catches are outside our control. In the event that a day is spoilt by any factor outside the control of Tweedguide no refund of any monies paid will be made.

In matters of safety the decision of the guide/instructor/ beat gillie  is final and no refund of monies paid will be made if it is necessary to stop fishing at any stage in the day.

Cancellations and rescheduling

Once you request a specific date you should be committed to that date. If you cancel or postpone your fishing date for whatever reason you may lose all or some of your monies paid. If we can reschedule the date with you at no extra cost we will do so.

If we cancel or postpone your date you will lose no monies paid and you may either receive a full refund or carry these monies forward to a future date.

Legal

Tweedguide will not be liable for any cost and/or loss you incur which is as a result of your actions or the actions of a third party unconnected with Tweedguide which Tweedguide could not reasonably foresee or forestall, any unusual or unforeseeable event beyond reasonable control of Tweedguide

It is a fundamental booking condition that you accept the hazards involved in river fishing and engaging in potentially dangerous activities.

To take part in one of our packages, you should be covered by adequate insurance for the duration of the fishing trip, and for the activities undertaken.

The insurance must cover for cancellation and curtailment, medical and emergency expenses (including repatriation), personal accident, injury and death. In addition, you should be insured against loss of or damage to baggage, personal possessions and flight cancellations and delays and unforeseen circumstances.

Your contract is with the individual guide/instructor who is a contractor of Tweedguide. Each contractor is covered by insurance up to a maximum of £5,000,000 in any one event.

Each contractor does not accept liability for death, bodily injury or illness unless this arises from a negligent act or omission by the contractor during the course of their contracted activities.

By confirming your booking you acknowledge that Tweedguide has taken all reasonable steps to safeguard its liability in this respect.

Tweedguide operates under Scottish Law and only Scottish Law applies to these terms and conditions.
