The customer must inform himself about the respective opening hours of the rental shop.

Delayed picking up of rental equipment

If the booked sports equipment is received by the customer too late or not at all, the rental price will not be refunded.

Cases of force majeure such as unfavorable weather or other influences that are not within the sphere of influence of the rental shop do not entitle to the free cancellation of the booking.

In the event of illness or injury to the customer during the rental period, the person directly affected receives a prorated reimbursement of the rental price upon presentation of a medical certificate. This is only possible if the rented equipment is returned to the rental shop as soon as possible after the illness or injury occurs. The customer will then be refunded the rental price already paid minus the rental time already used.
