In certain circumstances, Scubago may decide, in its sole discretion, that it is necessary to cancel a pending or confirmed booking and initiate corresponding refunds. This may be:

(ii) for any of the reasons set out in these Terms.

Within a certain timeframe after completing an Activity, Guests can leave a public review (“Review”) and submit a rating (“Rating”). Ratings or Reviews reflect the opinions of individual Guests and do not reflect the opinion of Scubago.
Ratings and Reviews by Guests must be accurate and may not contain any offensive or defamatory language. Ratings and Reviews are subject to Scubago’s Content Policy and Extortion Policy.
Operators are prohibited from manipulating the Ratings and Reviews system in any manner, such as instructing a third party to write a positive or negative Review about another Operator.
Ratings and Reviews are part of an Operator’s public profile and may also appear elsewhere on the Scubago Platform (such as the Listing page) together with other relevant information such as number of bookings, number of cancellations, average response time and other information.
