At Magikvanilla we really want you to have the time of your life. To ensure that, all our guests must understand some ground rules so everything goes smoothly. Please read the terms and conditions below, and feel free to get in touch if you have any questions.

 

BOOKINGS 

- When booking a course or a holiday experience, a contract is made when the booking is confirmed by Magikvanilla either in writing, email or verbally. In the case of late telephone bookings, when written/e-mail confirmation is not possible in time then the agreement is a verbal contract.

- The full amount of the course or holiday experience fee is due at the time of booking.

- The check-in days for all Magikvanilla holiday packs are on Saturdays.

- All participants must complete a booking form and sign a term of responsibility before they can take part in any Surf or SUP Experience with Magikvanilla (lessons or holiday packs). This is made either in person or via email.

- Parents or guardians must sign a term of responsibility for participants who are under 18 years of age.

- In case your group size has dropped in numbers, we must be notified up to 3 weeks (21 days) in advance (before the starting date) via email to welcome@makikvanilla.com. If you fail to inform us within this time frame, you will be responsible for paying the value on the original booking.
