Applies to booking at another Skydiving Centre in the South West of England. We promise to beat their price by £10. Please note that other centers in the South West may not operate Tandem Skydives from 15,000ft and so there may be an upgrade to jump from 15,000ft as opposed to the altitude quoted by the other centre.

Sponsored Charity Jumps
If you are jumping for charity and wish to recover reimbursement of the non refundable deposit and the cost of the training and the jump, you must raise the minimum of £145 sponsorship money in addition to the cost of the jump as detailed in the information pack.
You must raise the minimum amount of sponsorship as specified by your chosen charity. If you do NOT raise enough you may pay the difference yourself or you will NOT be able to jump and will lose your deposit.
If you raise more than the cost of the jump and the minimum £145 sponsorship for your chosen charity, this additional sponsorship money must be passed on directly to the charity.
If you wish to add any optional extra, i.e. Photos/DVD, you will have to pay for them out of your own money and not sponsorship.
You must make it clear to your sponsors that if using our Jump for Free scheme, some/all of the cost of the jump will be paid for out of your sponsorship money.
Skydive Buzz Ltd may pass on your contact details (if required) to the charity you have booked to fundraise for. This may be used to assist you in your fundraising and for collection of sponsorship. Some charities like to make contact with their supporters. Your details will not be passed on by us to any other third party.
Should the weather be unsuitable for jumping on the day it is your responsibility to return to the parachute centre on another occasion(s) if necessary, to complete your jump. You must rebook within 90 days of each unsuccessful attempt.
Balances payable on day of jump become non-refundable*.
All jumpers are covered by the British Parachute Association third party Liability Insurance of £2 million.
