TERMS AND CONDITIONS
The Booking Agreement
Please read the details of the terms and conditions of the booking agreement given below. A legally binding contract is formed when a booking is made and accepted. When you sign the booking form, you (and any other person on whose behalf you book) agree to accept these conditions and acknowledge that you have read the relevant trip dossier and the General Information section on our website. You also warrant that the information given by you in the booking form is complete and accurate.
A deposit of non-refundable US $500 per person is required at booking (Bank transfer) or 10% of the total cost – whichever is the more significant amount.
Please purchase your travel insurance before making any payment transfers or buying your international flights to ensure that you are covered in trip cancellations due to unforeseen circumstances. For example, your travel insurance should cover cancellation due to ill health/death of a family member at home, a pandemic, helicopter evacuation in case of natural calamities, political uprising, injuries or illness, etc.
A condition of our accepting your booking is that you purchase comprehensive travel insurance as soon as you receive confirmation. In addition, your policy must cover overseas medical treatment and aircraft evacuation from remote areas.
The balance payment of the tour cost is due 60 days before departure. If a booking is made less than 60 days before departure, the total amount will be paid at the booking time.
If you fail to pay by the due date, we reserve the right to cancel the booking and retain your deposit.
Our prices depend on domestic airfares, exchange rates, fuel costs, and other unforeseen circumstances. Therefore, we reserve the right to amend the itinerary and trip costs without notice up to the day of departure.
Any additional change to the original booking will incur a fee of US$ 50
Contact Responsible Adventures with immediate effect for any trip cancellations. Cancellation will take effect only after the receipt of a written confirmation, and cancellation fees will apply as follows:
- More than 45 days before departure – Minus the deposit
- Between 30-15 days before departure – 50% of the tour cost
- Within 14 days of departure date – 100% of the tour cost
We will not be responsible or compensate:
- If the tour is cancelled due to natural calamities or political unrest.
- Should you leave the tour/trek after it has started, be it your own will or due to ill health or a medical emergency? A cover letter will help facilitate your claim through your insurance company.
