**About Group Rates & Group Bookings
The hardest part of scheduling a large group is coordinating payment. Our online booking service simplifies this for you. All group rates are applied on the day of your jump – which means you don’t need to wait for a commitment from the whole group in order to start the booking process. Simply book YOUR jump and share your group event with friends and family via email or Facebook.
You can also tell friends your group number (provided in your confirmation email) and they can add themselves to your group. This allows your group to continue growing until 48 hours prior to your reservation. When you arrive for your scheduled appointment, the best discount rate will be applied. A refund for the discounted amount will be credited back to your account. Group discounts may also be applied toward additional purchases of video and/or photos packages, as well as other merchandise purchases.
