TRAVELER TERMS AND CONDITIONS
Please read these terms & conditions carefully before reserving your journey.
All travel offers subject to change by the supplier. Prices, dates, departures, itineraries, amenities, etc. are not guaranteed and subject to change. All published information is accurate to the best of our knowledge at the time of publishing, but please note that changes to our trips can and do occur. Many More Travels or ENV Travel (referred to herein asThe Company) will make every effort to keep the client informed of any changes, but cannot be held liable for any alterations made to the published itineraries. .
To secure a booking for a trip, the Company requires a completed booking form together with a deposit of up to 50% of the total per person price of the trip or the amount required by the supplier if different, Deposits may be different for custom and private trips and will be communicated prior to reserving. A reservation is accepted and becomes definite only from the date when the Company has confirmed acceptance by issuing the client with a confirmation email. It is at this point that a contract between the Company and the Client comes into existence. Before your reservation is confirmed and a contract comes into force, the Company reserves the right to decline any booking at their discretion. The contract is between the Company and the Client, being the person named on the booking form. The contract, including all matters arising from it, is subject to State of California law and the exclusive jurisdiction of the California courts. No employee, contractor or sub-contractor of the Company other than a director has the authority to vary or omit any of these terms or promise any discount or refund.
3) Payment For Your Tour
The balance of all monies due, including any surcharges applicable at that time, must be paid to the Company not later than 75 days before departure unless otherwise noted. In the case of non-payment of the balance by the due date the Company will treat the booking as canceled by the Client.
Loss of monies paid applies to all canceled reservations. The date of trip cancellation is the date on which the written cancellation is received by the Company. The loss of monies paid is as follows, per person:
- Cancellation any time after deposit – Loss of deposit
- Cancellation between 89 days and 1day prior to trip departure – 100% of total booking cost already paid
- Cancellation policy for custom and private trips may differ from these terms and will be communicated prior to booking
No refunds will be made if you voluntarily leave a trip for any reason after the trip has begun. The same applies if you leave a trip or cannot fully participate in a trip due to injury or illness. Refunds will be at the discretion of the Company if you are involuntarily forced to leave a trip for any reason. No refunds will be made for any accommodation, transport, sightseeing, meals or services not utilized.
5) Cancellation by the Company
The Company reserves the right to cancel any trip if the trip does not attract the minimum number of clients required to make the trip financially viable. A proviso to this; the Company reserves the right to cancel a trip at any stage prior to the scheduled departure due to terrorism, natural disasters, political instability or other external events which make it unviable for the Company to operate our planned schedule. In such a case, the Company will, at its own discretion, refund a portion of the trip price (less incurred costs), reschedule the tour, or offer an alternative tour. We highly recommend travel insurance.
6) Booking Amendments
If you wish to change your booking in any way, you must contact us as soon as possible and we will accommodate your request to the best of our ability. Surcharges may apply.
7) Substitution of a Client
If any member of the party is prevented from traveling because of the death, injury or serious illness of the passenger, close relative or friend, redundancy or jury service, it may be possible to transfer the booking to another suitable person (acceptable to the Company) provided that written notice is given at least 15 days prior to departure. An administration fee of up to $150 may be imposed by the company to cover non-refundable costs
- Late Booking Rush Fee: Bookings made within 10 days of departure are subject to a $100 rush fee.
- Minimum Group Size: The Company’s trips are priced based on a minimum group size, making our trips financially viable to operate. A small group surcharge will be assessed to each guest traveling in groups that fall below the minimum group size, which avoids us having to cancel the trip as many other companies do. Minimum and maximum group sizes do not include our staff members, journalists and photographers.
- Pricing Adjustments: The Company reserves the right to change the trip costs up to 90 days before departure to take account of the following items: government action, major fluctuations in transportation costs, including the cost of fuel, and cost increases by our suppliers..
9) Insurance Terms & Conditions
Travel insurance is required for all clients whilst on a trip organized by the Company. Travel insurance should cover adequate personal accident, medical, evacuation and repatriation expenses. The policy must also cover cancellation, curtailment, loss of effects and all other expenses that might arise as a result of loss, damage, injury, delay or inconvenience occurring to the client.
Clients, together with their personal property including baggage, are at all times solely at their own risk. Clients are wholly responsible for purchasing their own insurance either through the Company or their own insurance. When purchasing insurance, clients should ensure that there are no exclusion clauses limiting protection for the type of activities in their trip.
You acknowledge that participating in our trips requires a degree of flexibility, and understand that the route of a trip, accommodation and modes of transport are subject to change without prior notice due to local circumstances. Should the Company have to amend an itinerary for any reason, it may do so by varying or re-routing any trip. While traveling with the Company you agree to accept the authority of the leader and/or local operator at all times. You are aware that travel within a group may involve compromise to accommodate the diverse desires and physical abilities of group members. You understand that the Company reserves the right to decline, accept, or retain any person as a member of the group at any time. You acknowledge that the Company contracts with a network of companies, government agencies and individuals to assist in the running of its trips. To the best of the Company’s knowledge, these third parties are qualified to perform the duties they are contracted to perform. However, the Company will not be held liable for any injury including death, damage, loss, delay or irregularity that may occur due to the behavior of these third parties. The Company will not accept responsibility or liability for any client who contravenes any law or regulation. No employee, contractor, sub-contractor, servant or agent of the Company has authority to vary these conditions. This agreement is governed by the laws of California.
The Company does its utmost to ensure you a rewarding and enjoyable travel experience with us. In the case where we offer coaching and guiding, we also endeavor to provide you with the best possible learning experience. We understand that expectations vary greatly from person to person, however, and we cannot guarantee to meet all the expectations of the various people who attend our trips. By agreeing to these terms and conditions you accept that the Company will not be held accountable if our trips do not meet your particular expectations. This includes, but is not limited to, meeting your expectations regarding the quality or quantity of food and cooking classes, the quality or quantity of coaching and guiding, the quality or type of accommodation, the standard or type of transportation, the style of trip leadership and organization, and the extent of your improvement in cooking or any other skill.
Traveling with the Company may involve risks above and beyond those encountered on a more conventional holiday. Vacations involving cooking have inherent dangers that can result in serious injury and even death. Likewise, you must also be prepared to accept responsibility for your own actions during our trips. Although our guides and coaches may provide you with advice and directions it is ultimately your responsibility to determine where your limits of capability and experience are and to avoid crossing these limits. We will not be held accountable for the choices and decisions you make during our trips.
Although we do our utmost to ensure that our contracted transportation company drivers adhere to local driving laws and drive carefully and safely, we cannot guarantee your safety while driving with us and will not be held accountable for road accidents that occur during your travels with us.
By agreeing to these terms and conditions you accept the risks outlined in the above two paragraphs and fully assume the risks of traveling with the Company. You agree to release the Company from any liabilities connected to these risks.
14) Release of Liability, Waiver of Claims, Assumption of Risks and Indemnity Agreement (hereafter the “Release Agreement”)
By agreeing to this release agreement, you will waive certain legal rights, including the right to sue. Please read carefully!
