40.           Data Protection Act

The information that you have provided to Enjoy Bristol Motorhoming will be used to fulfil this contract placed with us. We will not pass this information onto any other organisation outside this company other than to our insurer and Alan Boswell Group, our insurance broker and the Police (or other relevant enforcement authority) to assist in the detection, investigation or prevention of crime.

42.           Acceptance of these terms and conditions

Payment of the booking deposit required to secure travel dates (as referenced in section 6) is taken as full acceptance of these terms and conditions which are freely published on our website to be read prior to making a booking. By making a booking you are agreeing to be bound by these terms and conditions in full.

43.           Force Majeure – Coronavirus and other pandemic crisis, political and war events.

In the event that a named/organised event (i.e. sporting event or festival) is cancelled due to any of the above, including but not limited to Coronavirus (COVID19) Enjoy Bristol Motorhoming standard cancellation policy (paragraph 7) will be enforced as the customer may still travel freely to another location covered by their booking and so any cancellation will be the customer’s choice. If the UK Government impose mandatory travel restrictions due to a pandemic health issue or war, including but not limited to Coronavirus (COVID19), which renders the planned hire impossible to commence or complete, Enjoy Bristol Motorhoming will consider this a force majeure under law and will enforce their standard cancellation policy. If this happens during an ongoing hire, the vehicle will be recalled as soon as possible. For this reason, customers are strongly advised to take out appropriate travel insurance for their trip. If the customer can demonstrate that appropriate travel insurance was in place but the insurers will not settle a claim (evidence in writing must be produced within 60 days of the hire), Enjoy Bristol Motorhoming will issue a 50% refund of the hire fee excluding the booking deposit as a gesture of goodwill, in order to share the financial burden with the customer. Alternatively, any existing booking may be deferred to a later date upon discussion and formal agreement with Enjoy Bristol Motorhoming should a force majeure be activated. Any deferred booking must be taken within 12 months of the postponement or the offer will expire and the force majeure refund policy will be enforced.
