Prices are shown including VAT at the applicable rate. Delivery costs (if applicable) are shown when you view your full basket and when you start the checkout process.
Ordering through our website is easy. Add items to your basket then proceed to the checkout. During the checkout process you will be asked for your contact details, billing address and delivery address. You may also enter your own order notes that will be seen by us when we receive your order.
Once you have entered your details you will be asked to make a payment through our payment provider. When this is completed we will send an order acknowledgement to confirm that we have received your order.
A binding agreement will come into being between us upon our despatch of the goods you have ordered to you. Due to the way in which the payment mechanism works, we may debit your payment method when you place your order. If we do not accept your order, we will promptly refund any payments taken.
We endeavour to deliver goods without undue delay and in any case within 30 days of accepting your order. In the unlikely event that we have not delivered your goods you can give us a written delivery deadline after the estimated date has passed and then cancel the order if we do not deliver by that date. If we fail to deliver goods on a specific date agreed with you, you can cancel and claim a refund.
If your order consists of a variety of goods, some of which we fail to deliver on time, you have the right, as an alternative to ending the contract, to cancel that part of the order or return goods that have already been delivered. We will then reimburse you without undue delay for the goods that have been cancelled or rejected. If the goods form part of a commercial unit that would be devalued or have its character changed if they were split up, you can only cancel the order for the goods or reject them as a whole.
The goods that we deliver to you remain at our risk until they come into your physical possession or the physical possession of the person that you have asked us to deliver the goods to. Therefore if our carrier fails to deliver the goods, or delivers them to the wrong address, this is our responsibility and we will do everything we can to rectify this.
If you do not wish to proceed with your order, you may withdraw your order at any time and for any reason prior to our despatch of the goods. Upon receiving your request we will promptly refund any payments taken in full within 14 days.
You have the right to cancel your order at any time and for any reason within the cancellation period. The cancellation period is 14 days, starting the day after the day you take possession of your entire order. You must not delay the return of the goods and should send them back within 14 days of informing us of your decision to cancel at your own expense. We will refund the cost of your goods and the cost of basic delivery within 14 days of us receiving your returned goods or receiving proof of their return. Please note that if you expressly requested a delivery method that is more expensive than our basic cost we will only refund you the basic delivery cost.

While we may have bikes to hire on a drop in basis on the day you wish to ride we strongly recommend booking to avoid disappointment.
Bookings can be made up to 48 hours prior to the start time of your hire.
Bookings made within this 48 hour period will be subject to availability and no guarantees can be made of availability.
Please fill out our online hire enquiry form in the first instance. We will email back with availability and you will then be asked to confirm your hire choices.

48 hour policy - We suggest that bikes can only be booked if we receive a hire enquiry and confirm availability 48 hours or more prior to the hire start date and time. Any enquiries received under 48 hours will be dismissed and you will have to contact the shop on the day of the hire to check availability.
Our reason for this is due to the high volume of bikes that we deal with and ensuring bikes can be turned around and correctly checked and set up for hire.
As we also run a one way service 48 hours notice is required in all circumstances to reserve a bike to ensure it is at the correct collection location.
Provisional reservations may be made within 48 hours of a hire start date if not previously booked but no deposit shall be taken or guarantee of bikes being available due to the logistics requirements of the hire process.
On receiving your enquiry we will contact you by email to confirm the details. Your trip is not booked and no contract exists until we have confirmed availability and taken payment. You should check the details of your confirmation carefully to ensure that it reflects the booking you have requested and inform us immediately of any discrepancies. It may not be possible to make changes later. By booking with Nevis Cycles you are acknowledging that you have read our terms and conditions and agree to be bound by them.
