Black Prince Cancellation Protection Scheme

This page is very important. Do please read it.

When booking a Black Prince Narrowboat Holiday, you will naturally be looking forward to a relaxing break. Unfortunately, circumstances can sometimes intervene and so we therefore offer the Black Prince Cancellation Protection Scheme as detailed below.

Once a deposit has been paid and your booking confirmed, a contract exists which renders you liable for the whole of the hire charge even if you are prevented from taking your holiday. Black Prince has arranged a Cancellation Protection Scheme which offers protection against this liability under the qualifying circumstances detailed below. In this event, all liability for any balance charges due will be absolved and if part or all of such charges have already been paid, they will be refunded (less the cancellation scheme fee). This scheme only covers full cancellation and not a partial refund. If you choose not to take the protection scheme and subsequently have to cancel your holiday, we will try to re-let your boat. If successful, we will refund your payment minus a 15% re-letting charge.

Qualifying Circumstances
1. Death, injury, illness or pregnancy (certified in all cases by a qualified medical practitioner), jury service or witness call of any member of the party listed on the booking form at the time of booking.
2. Death, injury or illness (certified in all cases by a qualified medical practitioner) of the spouse, fiancé(e), parent, step-parent, parent-in-law, brother, sister, children or step-children of the hirer or any member of the party.
3. Redundancy of the hirer, providing that the hirer qualifies for payment under the Redundancy Payment Act 1965.
4. Cancelled leave orders in respect of the UK police and military personnel. Warranty This scheme is subject to a warranty at the time of completing the proposal that each proposer and each person on whose state of health the holiday depends; is in good health, free from physical or mental defect, not subject to any chronic or recurring illness, and is not under treatment of any kind.
