Cancellations by us:
We may cancel a trip at any time prior to departure if, due to terrorism, natural disasters, political instability or other external events it is not viable for us to operate the planned itinerary. If we cancel your trip, you can transfer amounts paid to an alternative start date or in circumstances where cancellation is due to external events outside our reasonable control, refunds will be given less any unrecoverable expenses. We are not responsible for any incidental expenses that you may have incurred as a result of your booking including, but not limited to, visas, vaccinations, travel insurance excess or non-refundable flights.
In the very rare event that we do not receive the minimum number of bookings to provide the trip, we, at our discretion, shall be entitled to cancel or curtail the trip at any time up to seven days prior to the start date. We will always move you to the nearest group so as not to disrupt your plans too much. This is also to ensure that there are enough people in the group to make it the most possible fun for you! If this occurs and it is not possible for you to participate in a trip with a different start date we will give a full refund, however you shall not be entitled to make any claim for loss arising as a consequence of cancellation or curtailment in these circumstances.
Changes to Itinerary
We will always try to keep to the original advertised itinerary although sometimes some situations may be beyond our control and we have to change activates.

We take appropriate technical and organisational measures which are intended to prevent unauthorised or unlawful processing of personal data and accidental loss or destruction of, or damage to, personal data.
