Insurance And Health Requirements
We require you as a condition of your contract with Us for a package holiday that We are supplying to you, for you to have in place relevant travel insurance protection. Travel insurance is your entire responsibility
and an essential pre-requisite to booking a holiday with Us. You
must ensure that you (and all members of your party) have sufficient travel
insurance in place to cover you, together with your personal property, at all
times and for all potential risks. You must ensure that your insurance covers
you for the full duration of your holiday including, but not limited to,
medical expenses, injury, death, repatriation, cancellation and curtailment,
and in respect of any sports or activities that you may wish to do whilst on
your holiday. You must also ensure that there are no exclusion clauses limiting
protection for the type of activities included in your holiday. Evidence of
sufficient cover may need to be provided at time of booking. If you do not have
holiday insurance cover at the time of booking, you may personally be liable
for cancellation charges. For all clients arranging their own insurance, we may
ask for full details of the insurance company, policy number and 24- hour
emergency contact number. It is imperative that you familiarise yourself with
the details and conditions of your policy and that you notify your insurance
company of any pre-existing medical condition. Failure to do so can invalidate
the insurance cover.
Health Requirements and Insurance: You represent and warrant that you and everyone travelling with you are physically and otherwise fit to travel and to undertake the activities included in your itinerary.
The tour may visit many destinations in a number of countries, and may contain difficult terrain and water crossings. The tour may include developing countries where facilities available to guests in those countries may not be sufficient if you (or anyone in your group) is not able to walk without assistance or accompaniment. There may also be restrictions (due to the types of tours that you may contemplate joining) on the equipment or additional aides that you (or a member of your group) may wish to bring with you for your comfort or ease if you are not able to walk or manoeuvre without assistance or accompaniment. You therefore need to check with Us at the time of booking to see whether the proposed tour that you and your group wish to join are appropriate for you and all members of your group. We may ask you to go through various questions to check whether travelling on the proposed tour is possible for you and all members of your group, and We may make suggestions for how the tour could be taken with certain adjustments (if required), or whether a different tour may need to be offered to you, in order to fit with any requirements that you or any member of your group may need to have in place in terms of assistance or accompaniment to be able to enjoy their holiday. Regretfully, we cannot provide individual assistance to a guest for walking, dining or other personal needs.
You are solely responsible for checking (on your own behalf and on
behalf of all those in your group) with your (or the group member’s) doctor as
to which vaccination (including from any specific illness or exposure to
animals) or medication are recommended or required for destination for those
travelling and for any assistance that may be required.
We cannot accept any responsibility for your failure to comply
with the necessary medical, passport or visa requirements.
All passengers must have adequate insurance cover against
cancellation, illness, repatriation loss of luggage etc. You should advise Us
and your booking agent of the name of your own insurer for the insurance policy
that you have taken out that will provide you with adequate insurance cover.
