Payment for the rental is made in two instalments:

- 50% of the rental at the time of booking to block the date,

- The balance of 50% at the latest at the time of departure.



In case of bad weather : 


All postponements or cancellations are decided upon as soon as a BMS or Yellow Weather Alert for the Southern Province is announced by météo nc for the day of booking. The same applies in the event of heavy rain or strong winds (30 knots) on the morning of departure.
