Payment of fees

You can pay over the phone by credit/debit card and we recommend this process to confirm your places immediately.

Payment is also accepted by cheque. Please make cheques payable to "City & County of Swansea". We will not, however, be able to confirm your place on a course until we receive the cheque and we cannot accept responsibility for any postal delays or otherwise.

If you are eligible for a discounted fee, we can accept payment for the reduced fee on application, but you must provide proof of your eligibility for the concession within 14 days of payment. Failure to produce proof of eligibility will result in the increase of cost to the standard fee.

  • valid PTL number

The City and County of Swansea is not responsible for any additional costs you may have incurred, including costs for travel or accommodation. If a course is cancelled by Water Safety, registered participants will be given the option to register on a future course or to receive a full course fee refund. Wherever possible we will endeavour to offer an alternative at a later date*

The City and County of Swansea reserves the right to retain all or part of the fee paid in the event of cancellation or non-attendance by the candidate. The amount retained will depend on the amount of notice given:

  • 15 days or more notice - 25% of payment retained
