In the event of an absence, the customer must cancel the reservation directly from the student’s account in order to prove the absence and free the place for someone else.

Cancellations cannot be made by telephone. See how to cancel or modify your reservation.

If a minimum of four (4) hours’ notice is given before the time of the lesson booked (e.g. before 9.55 a.m. if the lesson is at 2 p.m. on the same day), the lesson is cancelled free of charge and will be automatically credited back to the student’s account. A new booking can be made immediately via the course schedule.

In the event of cancellation of a reservation within the four (4) hour time limit, the cancelled course is forfeited.

Only a medical certificate in the student’s name can be used to recover lost course credit.

Unless there is a technical problem, an automatic confirmation email is sent after each course cancellation.

In the event of cancellation of a course by Swim Stars, the course credit is automatically re-credited and can be re-booked by the customer.


The validity start date of a product corresponds to the purchase date (for course or pack cards) or the billing date chosen by the customer (for subscriptions).

Course cards (or packs) have a limited validity period, displayed at the time of purchase.

You can compare offers.


Failure to use course credits during their period of validity will not give rise to reimbursement of said unused courses by the Customer.

The duration of course cards (or packs) may be extended in the event of exceptional pool closures (e.g. COVID 19), excluding summer vacations and the Christmas period.

The validity date of a course or membership card may be extended free of charge in the event of physical inability to practice the sport for more than one (1) month. A written request must be accompanied by a medical certificate specifying the duration of the inability to teach swimming. The request must be made before the course credits expire. Otherwise, the application will be inadmissible.

In the event of the definitive closure of a pool in our network, the customer can benefit from a credit note valid for 1 year and refundable beyond this period if no pool has reopened within a radius of 15 kilometers from the location of the previously closed pool.

Any request for reimbursement following the definitive closure of a pool when another pool is located less than 15 kilometers away will be systematically refused. A credit note may be issued at the discretion of Customer Service.

Any request for a refund following a temporary closure of the pool (government measures, decision of the partner…) will be refused, and the customer will benefit exclusively from a suspension or postponement of the course free of charge.

In the event of relocation, a subscription contract may be terminated early with proof (employer’s certificate, lease) if the network’s pool(s) is (are) not accessible within a 15-kilometer radius.

Also in the event of a move, any remaining credits on a course pack cannot be reimbursed.

Swim Stars may add or remove new features at any time. A change of schedule or activity does not imply a refund (unless the cancellation is made within the deadline), as new slots are regularly added.


Swim Stars acts as a service provider subject only to an obligation of means and cannot in any way substitute itself for the responsibilities of the customer.


When purchasing a course card (or pack), under article L.121-20 of the French Consumer Code, you have a period of fourteen (14) clear days to exercise your right of withdrawal without having to justify your decision or pay any withdrawal penalties.

The above-mentioned period runs from acceptance of the offer by the Customer.

It is however specified that an error of payment total or partial of an article in promotion cannot be the subject of a refunding. Compensation for a purchase made during a promotion is subject to acceptance by customer service and may be made exclusively in the form of a credit note for an amount identical to that paid.


The customer may terminate the contract in accordance with the terms and conditions set out in the contract by sending a simple message in the chat room of the pool where you are taking lessons.
