This document shows the general conditions offered to web users and customers. Take into account that some conditions may vary if so specified in the corresponding program.
1. Payment Policy
In order to secure any reservation, a completed booking form followed by the payment of the deposit is required. You and any other people you might be travelling with accept these terms and conditions by paying this deposit. Please bear in mind that prices and availability are not guaranteed until a deposit is settled up.
Once confirmed, the deposit will secure your booking and will be only refunded in the event of cancellation by the company because of an insufficient number of clients booked by the due date or any other unforeseen events. We reserve the right to refuse to accept a booking at our own discretion.
The outstanding balance must be paid not later than six weeks before the starting date of the booked holiday. Your invoice will show when the balance is due in any case. Unless full reception of balance is confirmed by the date specified on your invoice, we reserve the right to cancel your booking without a refund at our own discretion.
10% deposit payment can be made by credit card. To avoid extra fees, we strongly recommend fulfilling any outstanding payments through wire transfer (i.e transferwise) to the correspondent account that will be sent once the deposit has been paid out. Although, payment through our secure payment getaway can be arranged by applying up to a 5% surcharge to cover the correspondent fees.
All prices and payments are in Euros and are accurate at the date published in our brochures and on our website.
We reserve the right to alter any of the prices of our Experiences at any time before entering into a contract with you. If that should be the case, we will notify you before we enter into such a contract.
All prices include IVA (VAT)
All prices include all the items listed in the itinerary section: “What's Included”. Please note that Tourist taxes or similar that are charged locally may be implemented or changed without prior warning. We do not accept responsibility for these costs, which must be paid by you and are not included within your holiday price.
2. Cancellation Policy
You may cancel your reservation at any moment. All cancellations must be notified to us by email and will be considered effective upon reception.
All cancellations made by the customer are subject to the following cancellation charges:
42 days or more: Loss of deposit
36 to 41 days before departure: 50% of the total invoiced cost
35 days or fewer: 100% of the total invoiced cost
Please note that the operation of every tour is subject to the minimum numbers stated in each specific itinerary being achieved at least 42 days prior to departure.
In the event of the package trip being cancelled before departure for any reason not attributable to the customer, either a full refund of all amounts paid or an alternative holiday of comparable standard will be offered from us (we will refund any price difference if the alternative is of a lower value). We do not accept any responsibility for flights or other travel costs.
3. Booking changes & suppliers
Special requests such as dietary requirements must be advised to us at the time of booking. We will notify the relevant suppliers of your needs but cannot guarantee that such requests will be met. Furthermore, we have no liability if such demands are not met.
Please note that our itineraries do not constitute contracts, and we reserve the right to change them at any time for an emergency, logistical or other reasons aimed at ensuring the health and safety of people. Every alteration in the itinerary will always be made in keeping the nature of each program. The final decision for any modification rests with our office or our experienced hosts and leaders, who are often best placed to assess the situation 'on the ground'. We will not be held liable for any loss whatsoever caused as a result of any delay or alteration; however, pro-rata refunds will be given for services not utilised wherever possible.
4. Please have in mind
Clients must acknowledge our recommendations as well as any instructions given by the hosts and activity leaders in regards to logistics, safety and conservation. Failure to comply with this requirement could lead to dismissal from the group and loss of any refund claiming rights, as could any behaviour that, in the opinion of the hosts or leaders, may be severely detrimental to the safety, welfare and enjoyment of other members of the group.
We inform that clients are not allowed to smoke or vape in any vehicle in use when in close company with other group members or anywhere where there may be a fire risk. Please remind that no outside alcoholic drinks are allowed on premises unless otherwise stated.
We reserve the right to take photographs during the operation of our tours, and to use the resulting images for promotional purposes.
By booking with us, tour members agree to allow their image to be used in this way; clients who prefer that their image should not be used must inform us prior to the tour.
Please remember that clients will be responsible for any damage infringed to the equipment supplied, premises, vehicles, or contents (such as furniture) due to their acts or omissions, and therefore, liable for compensation.
