Why book with us?
We value our customers and have a solid foundation (20 years in the business). I believe in simple honest pricing. I do not hide any costs in the small print, or call you after you have booked to tell you there is a fuel surcharge to pay. These are just two tricks I have heard some companies have done. We have never made a surcharge, or hidden the cost of the BPA membership of £30.00 for you to pay (in addition to the price quoted) on the day you arrive.
When the former RAF centre at Weston on the Green (Skydive Weston) got into difficulties the management took a lot of money from customers for skydives, training courses and videos to be done and then declared the company bankrupt causing people and charities alike to lose a lot of money. All my customers that had elected to jump at that centre (and it was a great centre) had the choice to come to another centre or have a full refund. Not one of my customers or charities lost a penny. The 2 former owners of that business now each run booking agencies. Buyers beware!
"I have seen many Skydiving companies come and go, we have stood the test of time by giving excellent value with reliable honest advice and information to our customers. We do not make false claims or promises! We do not hide costs in the small print. Having worked at centres for many years I have seen people that have booked through other companies both surprised and disappointed when they are asked to pay charges hidden by other companies such as the £30.00 BPA membership or a "fuel Surcharge". To date, we have never charged anybody an extra payment on the day after 15 years we don't intend to start now."
