There are two ways in which you can sign up and pay for your Skydive:

Option 1 -Pay a small booking fee to Skyline and raise a higher fundraising target for Look Good Feel Better. This amount must be raised 6 weeks before your jump date and cover the jump costs, so we can receive the remaining sponsorship as a donation.  

Option 2 – Pay a higher contribution to the cost of your place and fundraise to a more achievable target in the weeks leading up to your jump! To ensure Look Good Feel Better receives 100% of your fundraising target, you can choose to fund your own jump costs. Pay the booking fee deposit to Skyline, plus an additional cost to cover your place. Once this has been paid, you can raise as much as you would like for us!

*Please note that each airfield will have its own height and weight restrictions for their jumps. Please check the Skyline website for more information and make sure you are fully aware of these restrictions before you sign up for a place with us.
