fraiche air TERMS & CONDITIONS (2014)


When participating in any fraiche air activities, events, courses or family days as a member or non-member, when purchasing fraiche air products, or when registering for an annual membership, it is implied that you have read and understood and accepted the fraiche air terms and conditions (below) and will abide by them.



Fees for annual membership are valid 12 months from the date of purchase. Registration and payment can be made by PayPal online, or by direct bank transfer (details below). Please note ‘your name’, and ‘type of membership’ so we can trace your payment. A confirmation of receipt will be sent within 5 working days.


Payment for any additional activities, events, courses or family days as a member or non-member is due at least 2 working days before planned date. We’ve made it easy and give you lots of options.


Payments can be made by PayPal online, or by direct bank transfer to the fraiche air account stating ‘your name’ and ‘type and date of activity’ or ‘product’. A confirmation of receipt will be sent. If you have not paid at least 24 hours in advance of a planned activity, event, course or family day, fraiche air reserves the right to give your place to another participant.


We want to ensure our full attention goes to safety, equipment and getting the group ready to go on the day of the activity. This is why cash payments for last minute registrations will be subject to an additional fee (CHF 5 per activity) and a paper receipt will be provided.
