The tour price quoted in the information pack is subject to change without prior notice. BGLT will confirm all prices before you book your tour. Your tour dossier will indicate what is and what is not included in the tour price.
Deposit: A deposit amounting to 25% (unless otherwise stated) of the total cost of the tour is needed to confirm the tour.
Final Payment: The balance is due a minimum of 35 days prior to your departure (unless otherwise stated). For bookings made less than 35 days prior to your departure, payment is required in full.
If for any reason you need to cancel your booking the below will apply:
All deposits are non refundable.
If cancellation is more than 5 weeks out from the workshop starting date, loss of deposit only.
If cancellation is less than 5 weeks out from the workshop date, the full cost of the trip will be lost unless YOU can find a replacement.
If, unfortunately you do need to cancel a workshop, please note that your travel insurance may cover this.
Indemnity and Liability
Any tour is potentially hazardous, and all tours may involve crossing rough terrain by foot. It is essential that all lawful directions and advice of the tour operator be followed. Bernard Geraghty Landscape Tours (“BGLT”) DO NOT accept responsibility for any illness, accident or loss whatsoever incurred in the course of the tour or for any expense from such illness, accident or loss, and this includes any loss of equipment, personal possessions, valuables, bodily injury, illness taking place during any workshop or tour or while taking part in any optional activities.
Alteration of Tours: BGLT reserves the right to withdraw any tour, eliminate any feature or alter the itinerary, should conditions necessitate.
It is a booking requirement that ALL participants take out comprehensive travel insurance. This is totally up to you to arrange prior to any tour or workshop you may have booked. This should be done at the time your booking is confirmed and your deposit paid. All participants should be fully insured against accident, all medical eventualities, repatriation, cancellation, curtailment and default. BGLT cannot be held responsible for loss or damage to baggage and personal effects. This should also be covered by your travel insurance policy.
All participants must understand that while a high level of fitness is not required, a measure of physical activity is involved in all tours. It is the responsibility of each participant to advise us prior to departure of any specific medical conditions. Some tours are at altitude and involve modest hikes. Tours frequently involve travel to remote locations during the day and night, where medical, refreshments and toilet facilities are not readily accessible and/or available.
Weather: Please remember, I cannot control the weather and every tour has its risks of bad weather. A high level of patience is required while possibly waiting for weather to clear. As I always say “If there is light to be got, I will get it for you”
