Frequently Asked Questions 

This trip is organised by Give it a Go (GIAG), which means very low prices, great value and an organisation you can trust! 

1. Can people who are not CU students come on this trip? 

Yes, but priority will be given to CU members. If tickets remain unsold, and with the permission of GIAG team, non-CU students can come on this trip if accompanied by a Cardiff University Student. They will have to create a guest account on this website to book. 

2. Is this trip suitable for children/families? Is there a reduced rate for children? 

No - children are not permitted on this trip. Although the Students' Union are planning future trips with a set number of family rooms and exploring other options that would make our trips more inclusive for families and young children, this trip isn't suitable for them.  

3. I'm having trouble signing up online. What do I do? 

One possible reason for this is that the Students' Union finance system becomes much more strict for products exceeding £100. If your address, or any given details, don't exactly match the ones orginally given when you signed up for the card/account... the system will become very sassy with you. If you're having difficulties making payment through cardiffstudents.com please email SUFinance@cardiff.ac.uk and CC Giveitago@cardiff.ac.uk into the email. Ultimately it is possible to pay in person at the finance office of the Students' Union and there are no such difficulties with that payment method! 

4. What is the deadline for this trip? 

We must have everyone's payments by 13th March 2020 so we can make necessary arrangements. There are 38 places and when the tickets are gone, they're gone. Email giveitago@cardiff.ac.uk for an up-to-date figure of how many tickets are left. If you have any other enquiries please email Giveitago@cardiff.ac.uk and we'll get back to you within 1-2 working days!
