You should know that the ecological impact of a thrown out tent equals more than 3,000 km driven by car. In order to limit this impact, Decathlon guarantees that all tents and living areas are repairable and in perfect condition after the repair!

On this page we accompany you step by step to repair your living area, based on the encountered problems.

All our living areas are guaranteed against any manufacturing defects. If the living area is still under warranty, we’ll look after the repair and you can bring your tent to the workshop in your Decathlon shop. Living areas out of warranty or a living area that has been damaged because of improper handling, can be easily repaired by yourself (or at the workshop at your expense).
