What about Insurance?

The centres contracted with us hold public liability insurance. We also hold contingency liability cover.

Some operators require customers to complete an indemnity/damage waiver form prior to taking the experience. This may state the driver is liable for a fixed amount of costs should they damage the vehicle whilst driving. Most operators are able to provide additional insurance to cover this at a small additional fee, payable on site. The purchase of this is optional and is in addition to the public liability insurance held by all venues. The full details of any indemnity or damage waiver and additional insurance will be provided by the activity operator. WonderDays is unable to advise or comment on the content or suitability of any such waiver or additional insurance.

How it Works

All you have to do is pay for the experience you wish to purchase and we’ll send a voucher and booking information to you or directly to the recipient, then you just need to check the info and book your experience.

All events will go ahead, with the exception of extreme weather conditions, i.e ice / snow.

They have a hospitality unit on site to keep spectators and guests dry and comfortable at all times, but would suggest that wet weather clothing and umbrellas are packed.

You can wear your own helmet as long as it has the relevant Kite Mark.

What happens if you damage the car?

As there is an inherent risk in any motorsport activity, we ask participants to be aware of these risks and take appropriate measures to maintain their own safety, by adhering to the conditions and following the instructors guidance.

Should damage be caused to a vehicle as a result of a participants driving, our participants accept to paying excess costs required to make good the damage.

The provider has agreed that on the purchase of additional indemnity should there be any damage to any vehicles you drive you will not have to pay the first £4,500 + VAT of damage as previously stated on the Disclaimer form for the experience, instead the Damage Liability can be reduced dependent on the option you choose and purchase as outlined below.

Option 1: Reduce Liability from £4,500 + VAT to £500 + VAT

Great Reviews

  • Driiiiiifting!

    I had a lot of fun! Actually a lot more than expected. I got this as a present and haven't personally considered buying an experience like this but really glad my friends got me this. The company runs it really well. No booking issues and on the day things went pretty smooth.
