1.- ABOUT YOUR TOUR BOOKING
A booking will exist as soon as we issue our booking confirmation (the “Booking Confirmation”). This booking is made on the terms of these booking conditions. The person making the booking (the “lead name”) must be 18 years old or over and when you make a booking you guarantee that you have the authority to accept and do accept on behalf of your party the terms of these booking conditions. We may transfer your booking to another company in our group, but this will have no effect on your holiday arrangements
Whether you book alone or as a group, we will only deal with the lead name in all subsequent correspondence, including changes, amendments and cancellations. The lead name is responsible for ensuring the accuracy of the personal details or any other information supplied in respect of yourself and any other person travelling on the booking and for passing on any information regarding the booking or any changes made in relation there, to all persons travelling on such booking, including but not limited to information on schedule changes or copies of booking confirmations.
When you receive the Booking Confirmation and your travel documents, please check the details carefully and inform us immediately if anything is incorrect. Names on travel documents must exactly match those in your passports. Unless we are responsible for the mistake, we will not accept liability if a rail company or other supplier refuses boarding because the name(s) shown in your passport differ from those on your ticket. If there is an obvious error on the Booking Confirmation, we reserve the right to correct it as soon as we become aware of it, but will do this within 7 days of issuing the Booking Confirmation or, if your departure is within 7 days, no later than 24 hours before you go. Travel documents will be sent or emailed to you (to the address given to us by the lead name at the time of booking) approximately 2-3 weeks before your departure, and will not be issued unless payment of the due balance has been received.
We may not be able to confirm some of our ground arrangements straight away (e.g. bespoke accommodation, tours etc.). In these instances, we may issue a Booking Confirmation. However, a contract for arrangements that have not been confirmed on that Booking Confirmation will only be made when we have sent you written confirmation that those additional arrangements have been completed. If there is any change to any of the details discussed at the time of booking, before the Booking Confirmation is issued, we will notify you promptly of any new or changed details, including a change to the total price (if any). If any detail on the Booking Confirmation is not correct tell us or your travel agent immediately.
For those holidays where an additional local payment is required this will be confirmed to you. A local payment is a portion of the holiday cost which must be paid directly to the local representative as instructed. If the price of your holiday includes a local payment this must be paid in the currency specified. Please note that your holiday price will not be considered to have been paid in full until the local payment has been made. Tourist taxes, resort fees 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.
All clients are expected to satisfy themselves prior to booking that they are fit and able to complete the itinerary of their chosen holiday as described in the trip notes applicable to your relevant tour (the “Trip Notes”). By booking an Andean Great Treks tour you acknowledge that this is an active holiday which may test your physical ability and may consist of strenuous and demanding activities. You are therefore responsible for ensuring you are aware of the nature of the associated activities and physical requirements before you book. By confirming your booking you acknowledge that you have the appropriate levels of ability, fitness and good health to safely participate in the tour. Your personal safety is of paramount importance to us and therefore it is imperative that you advise us at the time of booking of any condition, medical or otherwise, that might affect your or other people’s enjoyment of the trip. This should include, but not be limited to, any special dietary requirements (including, for example, allergies) and any reduced mobility affecting you or members of your booking. Please contact us by email at firstname.lastname@example.org to discuss any such requirements.
All prices we advertise are accurate at the date published, but we reserve the right to change any of those prices from time to time. In the unlikely event of an administrative error leading to an incorrect price being displayed, we reserve the right to correct it (including after a booking has been confirmed). Offers are not combinable unless expressly stated and may be withdrawn at any time. All quotations are provisional until confirmed in writing on your Booking Confirmation. Before you make a booking we will give you the up-to-date price of your chosen holiday including the cost of any supplements, upgrades or additional facilities which you have requested.
When the price per person is dependent on the number of people in the accommodation and the number of people changes, the price will be recalculated based on the new party size. Any increase in price payable is not a cancellation charge. A separate cancellation charge will be levied in respect of bookings cancelled. A new Booking Confirmation will be issued as appropriate on which the cancellation charge will be shown.
No unaccompanied minors (those under 18 years of age) can be accepted, however (a) minors aged between 9 -17 years may accompany their parents on tours designated as family adventures. The trip notes for our family adventures provide more information about the ages which the trip is considered suitable for. (b) older teenagers may be allowed to join group tours provided they are accompanied by a parent or guardian who accepts full responsibility for them. (c) minors aged between 10 and 17 may accompany their parents on certain tours designated as Mountain holidays or Voyages.
Tours designated as family adventures are available only to those parties travelling with at least one child under the age of 18 at the time of travel.
Dates and itineraries shown for tours departing after 1 January 2024 are indicative only and subject to change.
