Information on this website is provided ‘as is’ without warranty of any kind, either express or implied.

While every effort has been made to provide the most accurate information we advise that information on this website may contain inaccuracies or errors. Ri Guides may at any time and without notice make improvements and/or changes in the products and/or the programs described in this information.

Cancellation:

If it becomes necessary to cancel your tour, you must notify Ri Guides immediately in writing. Once we receive your notice, cancellation will take effect. If you cancel, you will forfeit your deposit (US$500 for treks and US$1000 for expeditions). Also, if you cancel:

  • More than 45 days prior to the first day of the expedition, you will receive 50% refund of the amount you paid, with your deposit subtracted from that amount.
  • 45 days or less than 45 days before the first day of the expedition, then the full price of the trip will be forfeited.

The trip price is quoted as a package. No partial refunds or credit will be given for services not used. We recommend that you obtain cancellation travel insurance upon booking. If you can replace your spot by getting someone else to take that seat cancellation charges would be waived completely. You would only be charged the processing fee of 5%.

Delay, Cancellation or Change of Itinerary:

Ri Guides reserves the right to cancel any expedition prior to departure (including, but not limited to, by reason of too few people booking on any tour) in which case participants will be given a refund in full. However, you will not be entitled to make any further claim for any injury, loss, expenses or damage (either direct or consequential) or for any loss of time or inconvenience which may result from such cancellation (including but not limited to visa, passport and vaccination charges, or departure, gear purchases, airport and airline taxes). It is possible that a route change, postponement or delay (either in relation to departure or to the duration of the expedition) may become necessary due to inclement weather, snow and ice conditions, political restrictions or any other cause. In the event of a change, postponement or delay, participants have no right to refund of the tour price (in whole or in part) or other compensation for any injury, loss or damage.

 

Force Majeure:

Ri Guides will not be liable to pay the participants the compensation/refund if it has to cancel or change the travel arrangements in any way because of war, riot, industrial dispute, terrorist activity, natural or nuclear disaster, fire, adverse weather conditions or other unforeseen circumstances that may amount to force majeure.

 

Insurance:

We strongly recommend that you be covered by adequate insurance for the complete duration of your trip. Your insurance must include cover for; medical expenses, injury, death, cost of repatriation and evacuation via whatever means necessary including by helicopter/air ambulance. If you choose not to purchase insurance, you assume full responsibility for any expenses incurred in the event of a medical emergency and/or evacuation, trip cancellation, lost luggage, etc. We do not check insurance policies. We reserve the right to cancel your booking at any time before departure if we are not satisfied that adequate insurance is in place for you. All baggage and belongings are entirely at your own risk at all times and we will not take responsibility of loss, damage or accident to any luggage or property.

 

Medical, Rescue & Evacuation:

If your medical insurance does not cover rescue and evacuation insurance, we recommend you get it. Emergency rescue and evacuation can be very expensive in remote areas. Consider serves such as helicopter evacuation and medical care.

Always consult the insurance company if you have any doubts or enquiries.

We recommend Global Rescue for rescue and evacuation insurance on international trips involving high altitude and technical climbing.

You can purchase Global Rescue online at https://www.globalrescue.com
