The following terms and conditions represent the terms and conditions upon which you agree to participate in your nominated tours.
To avoid doubt, throughout the terms and conditions, the following terms will have the corresponding meaning:- “We” or “EG” or “the tour operator” or “Us” means Edventure Global and its agents, contractors, representatives and consultants; “You” or “participant (s)” means the party or parties identified on the first page of this document under the heading ‘YOUR DETAILS’; “Tour” means the tour or tours you wish to book as identified on the first page of this document.
The tour cost includes the tour fee only (unless stated otherwise in the tour overview, description, highlights or itinerary). All other expenses are the responsibility of the participants. The participant expressly acknowledges that the tour cost does not include any airfares, airport taxes, accommodation, transportation to and from the tour location, or items of a personal nature, unless specifically noted in the inclusions list for the tour content. The tour cost also excludes any insurance coverage for trip cancellation/interruption, travel accident, travel delay, baggage delay, loss or theft, medical or hospitalization expenses. We recommend you contact your relevant insurer in relation to the above-mentioned insurance coverage.
All participants are responsible for making their own way to the tour. All travel during the tour is not included unless specifically noted in the inclusions list for the tour content.
To secure your booking, we require a 50% deposit at the time of booking or full payment if there is less than 4 weeks to the tour start date. If for any reason you need to cancel your participation in a tour, please notify us at least 60 days before the start of your tour. At that time, we will refund your full amount, less a 50% cancellation fee. If notification of cancellation is made less than 60 days before the start of a tour, we reserve the right to retain the full tour fee. Edventure Global reserves the right to cancel or postpone any tour with inadequate enrolment. We decide whether enrolment in a tour is adequate in our absolute discretion. In the event that a tour is cancelled postponed due to inadequate enrolment, and only for inadequate enrollment, all fees and deposits paid will be transferred to an alternative tour of the participant’s choice within 12 months of the cancellation.
Cancelled trips and tours
Although Edventure Global has rarely cancelled tours, we reserve the right to cancel any tour for any reason whatsoever, including too few participants or logistical problems such as strikes, wars, acts of God, (such as the possibly of or confirmed threat of cyclone activity or bush fires) or any other circumstances, which may make operation of the tour inadvisable or unviable, including the safety and security of participants and their equipment. All tour payments, which were received in relation to a cancelled tour, will be promptly transferred to another training course or tour, or held in credit, and you acknowledge that this is our only obligation to you. We expressly state that we will not be responsible for any costs associated with travel, accommodation, insurance or any other costs other than the tour cost that may be associated, either directly or indirectly, with the cancellation of a tour.
We recommend that you have personal health insurance and purchase emergency medical evacuation insurance and emergency medical expense coverage, and trip cancellation insurance, which, may, depending on the terms of your insurance, reimburse you for non-refundable airfare and trip cancellation fees should you have to cancel the trip due to personal or family illness. Life insurance, baggage loss and baggage delay reimbursement plus other coverage is also advisable.
The tours may be taken by anyone in good physical condition. For some tours you will have to walk over irregular terrain, dive, swim, drive, cycle or visit remote locations. Please call us if you have any questions about your ability to do a particular trip. Once a trip has started and it is necessary for you to leave the trip because it is beyond your physical level, please note that there will be no refunds for any unused portion of the trip.
You must generally be in good health and it is vital that persons with medical problems make them known to us well before the trip begins. Although all tour operators carry a field safety kit containing general first aid items, it is understood that Edventure Global assumes no liability regarding provision of medical care or provision of medical advice in relation to the tour. Trip members are urged to check their coverage to be sure it is adequate and to consult their physician prior to participating in the tour.
