Trip Sign-ups

If you are not a member look at this page for information on joining the club: http://luhc.org.uk/info/join.php

To sign up to a trip:
  1. Visit the Hiking Club's page on LUSU's website at: https://lusu.co.uk/groups/hiking-club-c4a0
  2. Click on "Events" in the grey panel on the right
  3. The events are listed here and by clicking "Buy Ticket" you can follow the instructions through to join the event.
If you cannot pay online for whatever reason, then to pay for a cash ticket please come visit us at Faraday Foyer on a weekday between 1-2pm. If there is not a member of the exec present then please contact us. With the exception of trips on Week 1 of first term, where the sign-ups begin the Monday before the trip, sign-ups will begin two Mondays before the trip. That is 13 days before a Sunday trip. Signups will open at 8pm, which is half an hour before the social.

Reserve list and refunds

If all the available spaces on the minibus or coach are already taken, firstly get in contact with us and let us know you are interested in that trip. This is important because knowing that more people are interested will give us an incentive to find and book more transport. In addition to this, if you come to Faraday Foyer we will add you to a reserve list so that you will be given priority in joining the trip if more transport can be arranged. We'll contact you quickly if this happens via Facebook or a contact number. You'll be asked to pay to go on the reserve list as this is easier than chasing people up for payment after the trip.

We regret that if you decide to drop out we cannot necessarily give you a refund as this would affect our budget and be unfair to others to suddenly cancel a trip due to your drop-out causing a loss. If you wish to drop out, please let us know as soon as possible. The full policy for drop-outs is as follows:
  • If you sign up for the trip and then drop out, you will not get a refund unless there is someone on the reserve list to fill your place.
  • If you are on the reserve list, you are expected to be able to make the trip and not to make alternative arrangements. If you are told you are on the trip but then say you can't make it, you will not get a refund unless someone else can fill your place (and the original person will get a refund), with one exception:
  • EXCEPT FOR: If the original person on the trip drops out after 12 noon on the Saturday before a Sunday trip, or 12 noon on the Thursday before a weekend trip, then we realise this is often too late notice for reserves, and so unless a reserve can fill the original person's place, the original person on the trip will not receive a refund (and any reserves will).
If you're on the reserve list it's advised to have your gear ready for the weekend, and to keep your phone and on check your emails regularly in the run-up to the trip.

Of course, if a trip needs to be cancelled or you were on the reserve list and weren't given the chance to replace someone, visit us after the trip to get your refund.
