Terms and Conditions

By purchasing our packages you fully understand the following Scottish Salmon Guide terms and conditions.

Payment

Payment can be made by PayPal©, cheque or bank transfer.

We ask for a minimum 50% non-refundable deposit on booking. On occasions when permits exceed this we will ask for the full permit price which will be non refundable (see cancellations for details)

We request that the balance of payment is made at least 28 days prior to your booking.

Bookings made with less than 28 days to commencement, we request payment in full at the time of booking.

Bookings 

When a booking is made it is on the understanding that you have fully read and accepted our terms and conditions of business.

All bookings will be confirmed via Email.

All children under the age of 16 must be accompanied by a responsible paying adult/guardian.

It is a clear booking condition that you fully accept the hazards involved in the fishing environment and your engagement with potentially dangerous activities.

Cancellations 

If Scottish Salmon Guide makes the decision to cancel a coaching or guiding session due to extreme weather conditions beyond their control, for example very high winds making casting dangerous, or water conditions/levels on rivers in spate, or for any other reason; then a full refund minus costs will be given or an alternate date offered, whichever is acceptable to the client.

Almost all fishing guides are self-employed and rely on this as their main source of income. Upon booking your day the guide cannot accept any further work opportunities on that day, therefore cancelling your date seriously limits their chance of earning money on that day.

If a client wishes to cancel a booking a letter or email must give a minimum of 28 days notice.

If less than fourteen days notice is given then only an alternate date will be offered.

Any rearranged bookings after a cancellation must take place within a twelve-month period.

If fishing permits, catering or other arrangements have been made for a client’s booking which has resulted in costs to Scottish Salmon Guide which cannot be recovered from any third party supplier, and that booking is cancelled for any reason then those costs will still be chargeable and will be recovered from the client.

If conditions are unsuitable we will do our best to reschedule an alternative fishing on the day. This may incur an extra permit cost.

Liability 

Scottish Salmon Guide cannot be held liable to any conditions out with our reasonable control.

When Scottish Salmon Guide gives a refund due to cancellation, the liability will only extend to the value of the coaching or guiding session that has been cancelled and not to any additional costs incurred by the client.

The information on this website is reviewed and kept up to date on a regular basis, however, some changes may occur. No liability can be accepted for any errors, omissions or deletions.

Scottish Salmon Guide, staff or any contractor working in conjunction with us shall not be liable for any illness, personal injury or death caused out with our control or by not adhering or listening to clear safety briefings and procedures. However this does not apply to any negligence on the behalf of Scottish Salmon Guide.

Health & Safety 

Your safety and that of all other members of the party is always our primary concern.

If a client does not adhere to the safety instructions given or fails to wear safety equipment provided and puts themselves or others at risk they will be asked to leave the session. The contract will be terminated and No refund will be applicable in these circumstances.

Gift Vouchers

Gift vouchers are refundable up to 28 days after purchase incurring a 25% administration fee and any non-refundable costs i.e. fishing permits.

Gift vouchers are valid for 12 months from day of purchase.

Scottish Salmon Guide is not liable for gift voucher/vouchers resold through any third party.

Insurance

Scottish Salmon Guide recommends all guests ensure they have travel insurance including baggage loss, damage, personal possession loss and damage.

All clients must ensure they are covered by appropriate insurances for the duration of their stay and the activities undertaken. Insurances must cover cancellations and curtailments, medical & emergency expenses (including repatriation), flight cancellations, personal accidents, injuries and death.

Scots Law governs the Client’s contract with Scottish Salmon Guide and any dispute is to be settled in Scottish Courts.
