Fees / Charges / Subscription Packages
There is no fee payable to access the Site as a guest or as a registered member. However, please note that accessing the Site as a guest or registered member will only give you limited access to features and areas of the Site.

The fees payable for each of CUPID's subscription packages are set out on the payment page of the Site.
CUPID reserves the rights to alter these subscriptions packages at any time.
Please be aware that when you subscribe to any package, including the trial period, you will become liable for automatic renewal billing.

YouCanGetMe Events guarantees a minimum of 8 dates at any regular speed dating event. If you meet less than 8 people, you will be offered a complimentary ticket to another regular speed dating event. No refunds will be granted. Social events such as wine tasting, walks, bowling, rock climbing etc require a minimum of 12 guests to go ahead. If the minimum is not met you will be offered a half price ticket to another social event, or a free ticket to a regular speed dating event or party.
While YouCanGetMe Events aims to have a 50/50 gender split at every event, this is not guaranteed and may not always be possible due to no shows etc. At regular speed dating events, if the there is a difference of more than 5 guests, you will be offered a complimentary ticket to another event of the same value. At the large parties, a minimum of 40/60 will be achieved in the gender balance. If this is not reached you will be offered a complimentary ticket to another party. No refunds will be issued for imbalanced numbers due to the unpredictability of 'no shows'.
The YouCanGetMe Events Guarantee
As part of your membership we will inform you via the Site about YouCanGetMe Events. The price of attending a YouCanGetMe Events will be confirmed on the Site. YouCanGetMe Events guarantees that you will meet someone you would like to see again at each PAID YouCanGetMe Event. If you do not meet someone you would like to see again you can come to another YouCanGetMe Event free of charge.
The guarantee only offers free tickets to events you have not already booked for. We will not refund tickets already booked for future events under the guarantee. If you tick anyone you have met at a YouCanGetMe Event you have indicated that you would like to see someone again and therefore do not qualify for a free ticket to a future event.
If you are using the guarantee on a ticket that you bought for a discounted price, you must pay the balance when claiming the guarantee. For example, if you purchase a ticket for the discounted price of £14.95 and then wish to claim a guarantee and use it on an event which is £23.95, you must pay the £9. If you wanted to book another event which was £14.95 that would be no problem.
The guarantee is also limited to one free ticket per paid for ticket. The guarantee may not be rolled over. If you claim your guarantee and then do not tick anyone again at your free event, you may not claim another guarantee.
To qualify for a free ticket under the guarantee you must take part in the whole event. If you arrive late, leave early or choose not to take part you do not qualify.
The YouCanGetMe Events guarantee does not apply to special bigger ticket events such as days and evenings out (punting, walks, wine tasting, bowling etc) or to YouCanGetMe Events Lock and Key Parties or YouCanGetMe Events Balls. Guarantees may not be used to book these special events. The YouCanGetMe Events guarantee remains valid for three months from the date of the original event. For Elite and Super Elite events, the value of the guarantee is limited to a ticket to a normal speed dating event (i.e. not exceeding £23.95). If purchasing a ticket to an Elite or Super elite event with a guarantee, you must pay the difference in price. The guarantee also does not apply to complimentary tickets.
Cancellation of YouCanGetMe Events
When you book a YouCanGetMe Event, you must supply a daytime telephone number or mobile phone number.
If you want to change the event you attend, provided you let us know a minimum of five working days before the event, we will move you to another event free of charge or refund you less a £7 per ticket administration charge. Between 1 and 5 working days before an event no refunds are possible, however, we will move you to another event for a £5 per ticket administration fee.
If you let us know less than 24 hours before an event you can send a friend of the same gender in your place for no additional charge. We cannot move you to another event with less than 1 working day's notice. However, do please let us know if you are unable to attend, for whatever reason, as imbalanced numbers spoil our events for other people attending. For logistical reasons we are not able to refund any New Years Eve tickets (with or without hotel accommodation) although you can send someone in your place provided you contact us at least 24 hours in advance.
To move to a different event or send a friend in your place please call us during office hours (10am-6pm Monday to Friday) on 0845 838 5600 (local call rate) or use this link. All requests for refunds must be in writing and use this link.
Each of our events are based on a minimum number of attendees and we reserve the right to cancel an event if such numbers are not reached. You will then have the choice of booking an alternative event with us at the appropriate additional cost or reduction (depending on the cost of the event), or a full refund.
Cancellation of YouCanGetMe Events by us in exceptional circumstances
Cancellation may be necessary in exceptional circumstances and we reserve the right in our absolute discretion to cancel your event. If this occurs: (i) we will use reasonable endeavours to contact you, but will not be liable for any transportation or other costs incurred by people who arrive at a cancelled event; (ii) you will be offered an alternative event of comparable standard (if available) together with a refund of any price difference or a full and prompt refund of all monies you have paid. Circumstances outside of our control include but are not limited to war, threat of war, riot, civil strife, industrial dispute, terrorist activity, natural or nuclear disaster, fire or adverse weather conditions. If cancellation or curtailment of your event occurs as a result of circumstances beyond our control, the consequences of which could not have been avoided even with all due care, we will not pay any compensation, nor be responsible for any costs or expenses incurred by you as a result.
Meet new people
By booking a YouCanGetMe Event you are registering your acceptance of these terms and conditions. You represent and warrant that you have the right, authority and capacity to enter into this Agreement and to abide by all of the terms and conditions. We reserve the right to invite media to attend events. As a registered participant of a YouCanGetMe Event you understand that we offer an opportunity for meeting new people but cannot guarantee that any participant will successfully match with another participant. We also do not guarantee that any successful match between two participants at one of our events will lead to a successful date subsequently.
Dating people you meet
We aim to give single people a chance to meet one another in a safe and relaxed environment. However, we are not a matchmaking service and do not verify the personal details of those participating in our events. It is up to you to verify personal information to your own satisfaction and we recommend that you do so. Please approach any contact with participants at one of our events with the same caution you would undertake when meeting other people you do not know.
By registering for a YouCanGetMe Event you agree that neither Cupid nor our associates are liable for any damages, direct or indirect, that may arise from using our services unless resulting from our breach of contract or negligence. This includes any damages, without limitation, arising out of communicating with other participants registered with us.
Venue and timing changes of YouCanGetMe Events
Cupid reserves the right to change venue and timings of events. We will attempt to give you as much notice as possible prior to any change. Venues are subject to change and no refunds will be given for venue changes. The closest available venue which is suitable will be used as a replacement. If the venue is unusually far away from the original event, credit/refunds will issued on an individual basis at the Event Manager's discretion.
