Cancelations and Refunds
Here at Jumping Jos we understand that sometimes plans may change and it may become necessary to cancel or amend your booking with us. Our cancellation policy below set out our key points and circumstances and any cancellation fees that may be due and payable and if any refunds would be due.
Our cancellation policy applies to all our bookings and accompanies our terms and conditions of hire.
Cancellation by Jumping Jos “The Company”
It is very rare for us to have to cancel a booking and as a company, we have a great track record but we are also open to a large number of issues that are beyond our control.
Cancellation due to reasons beyond our control a full refund of any monies paid, i.e. but not exhausted vehicle breakdown, equipment breakdown, staff shortage or any other reason, excluding health and safety grounds, lack of space or wrong surface type, as these are confirmed before booking and are down to the client to check and confirm.
Cancellation by the Client
All cancellations must be made by telephone (01761 690 014) and speaking to a member of staff during normal office hours (8am-5pm Mon-Fri). All cancellations will be confirmed in writing via email & this must be kept as your proof of cancellation. Cancellations cannot be taken by voice mail, text, email or any other methods.
In order to amend or cancel your booking, please provide us with as much notice as is reasonably practicable.
Cancellations 4 days or more in advance of hire date are subject to a 25% charge of the total booking value (Loss of deposit), or the Client may transfer any Booking Fees and monies paid to an alternative hire date within 365 days.
Cancellations between 2-3 days of the hire date are subject to a 50% charge of the total booking value payable within 7 days.
Cancellations within 24 hours of the delivery time or upon delivery will be subject to 100% charge of the total booking value payable within 7 days.
Cancellation due to adverse weather
Most inflatables are acceptable to hire in light rain and moderate winds. We have many inflatables that come fitted with a shower cover/sun canopy and we recommend these inflatables are booked when hiring for an outdoor hire or event. If however, you feel that the weather forecast will ruin your day, you may cancel but must notify us before 8am on the day of hire by calling us on 01761 690 014. Any Booking Fees and monies paid may be transferred to an alternative hire date within 365 days.
Please refer to our Terms & Conditions of Hire clause 12.1 & 12.2 ‘For outdoor hires, the equipment must not be used in heavy rain or windy conditions. In the event of rain, remove all users from the equipment until the rain has past, then dry off any water with a towel, before use continues. The industry recommends a maximum wind speed of Force 5 on the Beaufort scale of 38 kph (24 mph) when using inflatables to ensure all our equipment is operated within safe conditions and minimise the risk of accident or injury. Force 5 is a fresh breeze when small trees and leaves begin to sway, whereas Force 6 is a strong breeze when large branches are in motion, whistling can be heard in telephone lines and umbrellas can only be handled with difficulty. Weather forecasts can be obtained from the Meteorological Office
If the company has to cancel your booking based on the weather forecast exceeding what our industry deems to be acceptable for safe use, as per the HSE recommended guidelines specified in BS EN14960, and as per clause 12.2, we will telephone you with as much notice as possible and endeavour to work with you to find an alternative venue indoors, or move your hire to another date subject to availability.
Cancellations due to insufficient space/unsuitable area or surface type
All equipment on our website states the actual size of the equipment plus the area required for safe use including the height restrictions. If we are unable to deliver an item due to insufficient or unsuitable area, wrong surface type, or height restrictions, your booking will be subject to a Cancellation Fee of 100% of the booking value less any monies paid, payable within 7 days.
Failure to pay any Cancellation Fee remaining balance may result in court action to recover any monies due and interest charged at 2% above the bank of England current rate.
Under UK law in general, a client has the right to cancel an order, service or product within 14 days of placing an order. However, due to the nature of our business, the hire of our products and services are exempt under the exemption of leisure service activities on specific dates.

This cover includes but is not limited to performance tickets, car hire, wedding venues etc.
