In the event that the United Kingdom leaves the European Union whether or not it enters into a withdrawal agreement, it may become uneconomic or impossible to fulfil the requirements of any agreement with the customer in respect of motorcycle rental or other services, such as the provision of hotel accommodation. Rentamotorcycle reserves the right to cancel in whole or part any agreement with the customer as a result of the United Kingdom no longer being a member of the European Union. No compensation will be payable to the customer for such cancellation. Where the customer has paid a deposit in advance of receiving services, Rentamotorcycle will refund the deposit relating to the rental of any motorcycle. Where a deposit relates to services, such as hotel accommodation and Rentamotorcycle has made payments to such service providers, Rentamotorcycle will use reasonable endeavours to recover such sums and pass them back to the customer.
