The Contract shall continue until the Event has ended but such expiry shall not affect accrued rights and liabilities of the parties and shall not affect any continuing obligations of the parties under the contract.

Please check the contents carefully and, in the event of any discrepancy, contact us immediately. Any discrepancies which are not notified to us within the timescale prescribed in these Conditions may lead to you incurring additional costs and charges.

1.5 Subject to the Unfair Contract Terms Act 1977, all conditions and terms implied by statute or common law are excluded to the fullest extent permitted by law.
1.6 The website and brochure are prepared many months before the Event commences and although every effort is made to ensure complete accuracy, it is inevitable that some of the prices or details may have changed since the brochure and website containing the Event details were printed/created. We will inform you prior to entering into the contract of any changes to the Event that we are aware of at that time.

2. Special Requests and Health
2.1 If you have any special requests, you should inform us of such requests on the booking form. We will advise the relevant supplier of your requirements but we cannot guarantee that such requests will be met. Furthermore, we have no liability to you if such requests are not met. Confirmation that a special request has been noted or passed on to the supplier or the inclusion of the special request on your confirmation invoice or any other documentation is not confirmation that the request will be met.

and such medical problem or disability would or might affect your health and safety whilst on the Event or the health and safety of anyone else participating in the Event.
2.3 If it is later discovered that a medical problem or disability was not declared to us, and such problem or disability would, if we had knowledge of it, have led to our refusal to accept or to cancel your booking, we reserve the right to request or seek confirmation from a medical expert approved by us that you are fit to travel and/or withdraw you from the Event without any refund or recompense. In such event, you shall reimburse to us any reasonable costs, losses or expenses which we incur or suffer as a result. In the event of you being withdrawn from the Event, no refunds will be given and we will not be responsible for (and you agree to indemnify us against) any costs, claims, losses and expenses arising including costs of repatriation e.g. flights and legal expenses.

In such event, you shall reimburse to us any reasonable costs, losses or expenses which we incur or suffer as a result. In the event of you being withdrawn from a Event, no refunds will be given and we will not be responsible for (and you agree to indemnify us against) any costs claims losses and expenses arising including costs of repatriation e.g. flights and legal expenses.

You agree to abide by all instructions given to you by the leader of the Event or anyone else appointed by us whilst you are on the Event and you acknowledge that we cannot be held responsible for any injuries that may arise as a result of you failing to comply with such instructions.
2.9 Accommodation on the Event is on a twin share basis unless otherwise stated. If you are booking on the Event alone you will be partnered with a person of the same sex. You may request a single room for any hotel accommodation in the Event itinerary, but the allocation of such will be subject to availability and the payment of the appropriate single supplement. Where accommodation on the Event itinerary is provided in tents, it will not be possible to allocate single accommodation and you will be paired with a person of the same sex.
3. Your Responsibilities
3.1 By signing the booking form you confirm that you are aware of, understand and consent to the likely physical demands of the Event. You confirm that you are aware of the possible effects of such things as, but not restricted to, trekking at high altitude, jungle, desert, heat, cold and other inhospitable environments and declare yourself to be sufficiently physically fit and medically healthy to participate safely. You confirm that you consent to our code of conduct (“Code of Conduct”) and accept the authority of the leader of the Event (“Event Leader”) and that you will sign a copy of the Code of Conduct to indicate acceptance and return it to us no later than 8 weeks prior to the Departure Date (or within 7 days of booking where your booking is made less than 8 weeks before the Departure Date).

4. Your Financial Protection

We provide security by way of an ATOL (number 6475) administered by the Civil Aviation Authority.
4.2 When you buy an ATOL protected air package and flights from us you will receive a confirmation from us confirming your arrangements and your protection under our Air Travel Organiser’s licence number 6475.
4.3 In the unlikely event of our insolvency, the CAA will ensure that you are not stranded abroad and will arrange to refund any money you have paid to us for an advance booking. For further information visit the ATOL website at www.atol.org.uk.
4.4 The price of our air Event Packages includes the amount of £2.50 per person as part of the ATOL Protection Contribution (APC) we pay to the CAA. This charge is included in our advertised prices.
5. Your Event Price
5.1 We reserve the right to alter the price of the Event at any time. You will be advised of the current price of the Event that you wish to book before your booking is confirmed.
5.2 When you make your booking you must pay a registration fee as set out in the brochure/on the website. You must pay the balance of the cost of the Event in one of the following ways:
5.2.1 where the cost of participating in the Event is being paid by you, no later than 8 weeks prior to the Departure Date;
5.2.2 where the cost of participating in the Event is being paid by a charity for whom you have agreed to raise funds, by them confirming no later than 8 weeks prior to the Departure Date that they have received at least 80% of the set fundraising target from you, and paying no later than the Departure Date the balance of the Event costs. If the registration fee and/or balance are not paid on time (either by you or the charity), we may cancel your booking and the contract between us. If the balance is not paid in time and we cancel your booking we shall retain your registration fee and any instalments or other payments paid by you or the charity.
5.3 Where a charity nominated by you is paying for your place on the Event as set out in Condition 5.2, we must receive a signed authorisation letter from the charity that they agree to this arrangement and that payment will be made in accordance with Condition 5.2. You will at all times remain responsible for the cost of your place on the Event if payment is not made in full by the charity in accordance with this Agreement.
5.4 Where you choose to fundraise on behalf of a nominated charity, it is your responsibility to directly send to that charity all monies raised; no monies should be sent to the Company. You must agree the dates by which you should forward such monies directly with the charity, but the Company normally requires such monies to be forwarded within 6 weeks of the date of your return from the Event. If you fail to meet the minimum level of fundraising set, you will not be entitled to take part in the Event unless the charity agrees or you agree to pay the full cost of the Event yourself.
5.5 Where you have indicated to us the identity of the charity that you will be raising monies for on your booking form, you must not use your participation in the Event as a vehicle to raise funds for any other charity or third party.
5.6 Where you have chosen to raise funds for a charity, and the charity is paying to us the cost of your place on the Event, you agree and acknowledge that all references in these Conditions to the cost of your place on the Event (or a proportion of it) being repaid to you will be read as, and will mean that, monies paid by the charity will be repaid to the charity. You further agree and acknowledge that all monies paid to the charity in fundraising by you will be treated as a donation to that charity; it will be retained by the charity and will not be returned to you.
5.7 Changes in transportation costs, including the cost of fuel, taxes, duties or fees chargeable for services such as landing taxes or embarkation or disembarkation fees at ports and airports and fluctuation in exchange rates mean that the price of your Event may change after you have booked. There will be no change within 30 days of your Departure Date.
5.8 We will absorb and you/the charity will not be charged for any increase equivalent to 2% of the price of your arrangements, which excludes insurance premiums and any amendment charges. You will be charged for any amount over and above that. If this means that you/the charity have to pay an increase of more than 10% of the price of your Event, you will have the option of accepting a change to another Event if we are able to offer one (if this is of equivalent or higher quality you will not have to pay more but if it is of lower quality you will be refunded the difference in price), or cancelling and receiving a full refund of all monies paid. Should you decide to cancel for this reason, you must exercise your right to do so within 14 days from the date that we inform you of the increase and send the final invoice.
5.9 We will consider an appropriate refund of insurance premiums paid by you if you can show to our satisfaction that you are unable to transfer, postpone or reuse your policy.
5.10 Should the price of your Event go down due to the changes mentioned above, by more than two per cent (2%) of your Event cost, then any refund due will be paid to you or the charity (as applicable). However, please note that some foreign parts of the Event are not always purchased in local currency and some apparent changes have no impact on the price of your Event due to contractual and other protection in place.
5.11 Where any payment due under the contract from you/the charity is overdue, we reserve the right to charge interest (both before and after any judgment) on the amount unpaid, at the rate of four per cent (4%) per year above Barclays Bank plc base rate from time to time, until payment in full is made (a part month being treated as a full month for the purpose of calculating interest).
5.12 Please note that we impose a 2.8% surcharge in respect of all payments made by credit card.
6. If You Change Your Booking
6.1 We start to incur costs from the moment you make your booking. If, after our confirmation has been issued, you wish to change your Event in any way, we will do our utmost to make these changes but it may not always be possible. Any request for changes to be made must be in writing from you. You will be asked to pay an administration charge of seventy five pounds (£75.00) and any further cost we incur in making this alteration (an “Amendment Charge”). You should be aware that these costs could increase the closer to the Departure Date that changes are made and you should contact us as soon as possible if you need to amend the booking. If you wish to extend your stay in country we will endeavour to amend your booked return flights but you will be required to pay an Amendment Charge and any increased costs in the price of your flights..
6.2 We may, at our discretion, allow you to transfer your booking to another person provided that such other person indicates their acceptance of these Terms and Conditions. In the event of such a transfer an Amendment Charge shall be payable by you to cover the costs incurred by us in making this alteration. We accept no liability to you if we refuse to transfer your booking to another person for any reason.
6.3 Note: Some travel arrangements (e.g. Most discounted air ticket, Apex Tickets) may not be changeable after a booking has been made and any alteration request could incur a cancellation charge of up to 100% of that part of the Event.
7. If You Cancel Your Event
7.1 You may cancel your Event at any time. Your written notification must be received at our registered office. Since we incur costs in cancelling your Event, you/the Charity will have to pay the applicable cancellation charges up to the maximum shown below. We recommend that your travel insurance provides for your reimbursement in the event of a cancellation. You will remain liable for any losses arising from your breach of the Conditions of the Contract.
Cancellation from date of booking until 56 days prior to Departure Date
Loss of registration fee
Cancellation between 55 and 43 days prior to Departure Date

7.2 Note: If the reason for your cancellation is covered under the terms of your insurance policy, you may be able to reclaim these charges but it is your sole responsibility to do so and we accept no liability for any acts or omissions of your insurance company.
8. If We Change or Cancel Your Event
8.1 It is unlikely that we will need to make any changes to your Event, but we do plan all Events many months in advance. Occasionally, we may have to make changes and we reserve the right to do so at any time. Most of these changes will be minor and we will advise you of them at the earliest possible date. We also reserve the right in any circumstances to cancel your Event. For example, if the minimum number of clients required for a particular Event is not reached, we may have to cancel it. We also reserve the right at any time prior to the Departure Date without prior consultation with you to notify you in writing that the Event will be merged with one or more other events traveling to the same country. This will not constitute a major change. However, we will not cancel your Event less than 42 days before your Departure Date, except for reasons of Force Majeure or failure by you to pay the final balance. If we are unable to provide the Event, you can either have a refund of all monies paid or accept an offer of an alternative Event of comparable standard from us if available (we will refund any price difference if the alternative is of a lower value). If it is necessary to cancel your Event for reasons other than Force Majeure, we will pay to you compensation as set out in the table below Condition 8.4. If we cancel the Event we will not be liable for any indirect or consequential loss suffered by you such as, but not limited to, prior or subsequent travel arrangements, tours or flight arrangements.
8.2 In accordance with EU Regulation 2111/2005 we are required to advise you of the actual carrier operating your flight/connecting flight/transfer, in order to bring to your attention carriers which are banned or ‘blacklisted’ from operating within the EU. We will list carriers that are likely to be used, and a full list of banned carriers can be found at the following link: http://ec.europa.eu/transport/air-ban/.
8.3 Any changes to the actual carrier after you have received your tickets will be notified to you as soon as possible and in all cases at check-in or at the boarding gate. Such a change is deemed to be a minor change. Other examples of minor changes include alteration of your outward/return flights by less than 24 hours, changes to aircraft type, change of accommodation to another of comparable or better standard.
8.4 If we make a major change to your Event, we will inform you as soon as reasonably possible if there is time before your Departure Date. You will have the choice of either accepting the change of arrangements, accepting an offer of an alternative Event of comparable standard from us if available (we will refund any price difference if the alternative is of a lower price), or cancelling your Event and receiving a full refund of all monies paid. In all cases of major change, except where the major change arises due to reasons of Force Majeure, we will pay compensation as detailed below:
IF WE MAKE A MAJOR CHANGE TO OR CANCEL YOUR TRIP
Period before departure within which notice of Cancellation or major change is notified to you
Amount you will receive from us
More than 42 days
41 - 28 days
13 days- date of travel
8.5 The compensation that we offer does not exclude you from claiming more if you are entitled to do so in law.
8.6 Force Majeure: This means that we will not pay compensation if we have to cancel or change your Event in any way because of unusual or unforeseeable circumstances beyond our control. These can include, for example, war, riot, industrial dispute, terrorist activity and its consequences, natural or nuclear disaster, fire, epidemics or health risks, closed or congested airports, ports or stations, poor local infrastructure, changes imposed by re-scheduling or cancellation of transport by the transport supplier such as flights by airlines or main charterer, the alteration of transport or transport types, adverse weather conditions (actual or threatened), avalanche and technical failure with transport, Foreign and Commonwealth Office advice changing and advising against travel to the Event destination.
9. If You Have A Complaint
9.1 If you have a problem during your Event, please inform the Event Leader immediately who will endeavour to put things right. If your complaint is not resolved locally, please follow this up by writing to our [Operations Director] at our registered office giving your booking reference and all other relevant information and, where possible, evidence. We must receive any such complaint not later than 28 days of the date of your return from the Event. Please keep your letter concise and to the point. This will assist us to quickly identify your concerns and speed up our response to you.
9.2 It is strongly recommended that you communicate any complaint to the supplier of the services in question as well as to our representative without delay and complete a report form whilst on the Event.
9.3 If you fail to follow this simple procedure we will have been deprived of the opportunity to investigate and rectify your complaint whilst you were in-country and this may affect your rights as you will have failed to have mitigated (minimised) your losses and you may be unable to recover compensation from us.
10. Our Liability to You
10.1 Our obligations and those of our suppliers providing any service or facility included in your Event are to take reasonable skill and care to arrange for the provision of such services and facilities and where we or our supplier is actually providing the service or facility, to provide them and to do so with reasonable skill and care.

10.3.3 unusual and/or unforeseeable circumstances beyond our control, the consequences of which could not have been avoided even if all due care had been exercised; or

10.4.2 any relevant international convention, for example the Montreal Convention in respect of travel by air, the Athens Convention in respect of travel by sea, the Berne Convention in respect of travel by rail and the Paris Convention in respect of the provision of accommodation, which limit the amount of compensation that you can claim for death, injury, delay to passengers and loss, damage and delay to luggage.

However reimbursement in such cases will not automatically entitle you to a refund of your Event cost from us. Your right to a refund and/or compensation from us is set out in Condition 8. If any payments to you are due from us, any payment made to you by the airline will be deducted from this amount. If your airline does not comply with these rules you should complain to the Air Transport Users' Council on 020 7240 6061 www.auc.org.uk.

We offer an insurance scheme under which you may purchase a policy of insurance to cover you taking part in the Event (the premium for which will be advised to you on request and must be paid in accordance with Condition 1.2).
14.2 If you choose not to take the insurance referred to in Condition 14.1, it is your responsibility to ensure that your policy of insurance covers you fully for all of the activities which may take place during the Event. Whilst we take no responsibility for the contents of any policy of insurance that you choose to take out, we reserve the right to inspect such insurance policy and to refuse to allow you to embark on the Event or to oblige you to obtain further insurance if we believe that your cover is inadequate and/or does not satisfy the requirements of this Condition 14.1.
