  Travel Insurance:

   We recommend that you consider taking out travel insurance for those unforeseen things that may require you to cancel your hire. Whilst we are compassionate towards illness, injury and family loss, we cannot cover the cost of short notice cancellations.

This can be particularly embarrassing and a financial strain for you if your friends decide to pull out on you at the last minute.
