The client must always strictly comply with the laws, customs, foreign exchange, and drug regulations of all countries visited. Should the client fail to comply with the above or should the client’s actions interfere with the well-being of the group then the tour leader or company representative has the authority to order the client to leave the tour without recourse to any refund.
The client must be in possession of a valid travel document and all visas, permits and certificates, required for the whole journey and the client accepts responsibility for obtaining the same. Any information or advice given by the company on visas, vaccinations, climate, clothing, baggage, special equipment, etc. is given in good faith but without responsibility on the part of the company.

It is compulsory that all clients have personal travel insurance. This policy must include the minimum costs of medical and repatriation expenses.
Client’s responsibility for effecting other insurance.
The client is strongly advised to take out cancellation and curtailment insurance. The client acknowledges that insurance provision in respect of spouse and any other dependents is an important matter for which the client accepts full responsibility.
