Skydive Cancellation Policy
Bookings online or by telephone is considered a firm booking and so a 24-hour cancellation notice is required. If the weather conditions are not suitable for skydiving then we will offer you alternative times and days. If these times don’t suit you then please let us know.
24 Hour Policy
We ask that if you have to cancel or postpone your jump, please let us know 24 hours before you are due to jump with us. This enables us to find a more suitable time for you to jump with us, and also opens up the booking should anyone else like to jump at that time.
Should the weather be unsuitable for jumping on the day, we will attempt to find another suitable time to complete your skydive. If you have prepaid for your skydive and you are not able to jump due to weather cancellations made by our team, we will provide you with a full refund.
18,500 ft / High Altitudes
Going up to 18,500 ft is subject to operational requirements. Sometimes these are out of our control such as weather conditions. If the conditions aren’t suitable, we may not be able to reach such altitudes.
Vouchers / Special Promotions
Vouchers are non-refundable and not redeemable for cash, but are transferable. Gift vouchers purchased directly through TTS will expire 12 months after purchase. Gift vouchers purchased via another site or booking agent will be subject to the terms and conditions attached to that purchase. Gift Vouchers are open-dated. Please phone 0800 826 336 or email firstname.lastname@example.org to book your skydive. Failure to show on your scheduled date and time will render your voucher invalid. Remember to present your voucher and valid ID on check-in as without it, you are unable to skydive. Please advise immediately if your gift vouchers has been stolen, as once the voucher has been presented no replacements will be available. Where the cost of your experience is greater than the value of your voucher, you will be required to pay the difference. Where the cost of your experience is less than the value of your voucher you will not be entitled to a cash refund (however you may use the remaining balance towards merchandise eg. photo packages).
