Before booking any expedition/trekking or tours trip with us, we kindly request mountaineers, trekkers, travelers, and adventure enthusiast to go through the following Terms and Conditions that govern the relationship between you (client) and Wongchhu Peak Promotion Pvt.Ltd. Below are the details of the terms and conditions. Please read them carefully. When you sign the booking form you (and any other person on whose behalf you book) agree to accept all of these conditions, you acknowledge that you have read all booking conditions. You also warrant that the information given by you on the booking form is complete and true.
All bookings are made with Wongchhu Peak Promotion Pvt. Ltd (606728171) (us/we). By booking a trip with us you are deemed to have agreed to these Booking Conditions (which constitutes the entire agreement between you and us) and your booking will be accepted by us on this basis. The services to be provided are those referred to in your booking confirmation invoice.
Dates and itineraries are valid until 31 December 2019. Beyond 31 December 2019 dates and itineraries are indicative only.
You are required to pay a non-refundable deposit of $400 per person per trip for your booking to be confirmed. If your booking is made within 30 days of the departure date then the full amount is payable at the time of booking. Please note that different deposits amounts are required for selected trips.
Acceptance of booking and final payments
If we accept your booking we will issue a confirmation invoice. A contract will exist between us from the date we issue the confirmation invoice or if you book within 30 days of departure the contract will exist when we accept your payment. Please refer to your booking confirmation invoice for details regarding final payments. Payment of the balance of the trip price is due 30 days before the departure date. Please note that full payment is required earlier. If this balance is not paid on or before the due date we reserve the right to treat your booking as canceled.
Insurance and Travel Risks
A government act dictates that no foreigner will be able to purchase an insurance in Nepal. Hence, it is important for the clients to purchase a travel insurance package in their own country. Trekking and expedition may involve risks and several other factors that cannot be foretold. Medical emergencies, natural calamities are common in high altitudes and we like to be assured that our clients are insured against helicopter evacuations, trip cancellations, and personal accidents so that they don’t have to suffer twice.
This agency will inquire about client’s personal and insurance information so that proper steps and paper works can be done in case of unpredictable situation. If somehow a rescue is needed, our company will contact rescue companies and will manage all the paper works.
It is to be noted that the company shall not bear any losses or provide compensation in case the guest’s insurance doesn’t cover any or all aspects of the trip.
Prices & surcharges
Our trip prices are subject to variable and seasonal pricing, both of which are standard practice within the travel industry. This means our trip prices may vary at any time in accordance with demand, market conditions and availability. It is likely that different passengers on the same trip have been charged different prices. Your best option if you like the price you see is to book at that time. Any reduced pricing or discounts that may become available after you have paid your deposit will not apply. If you wish to cancel your booking to take advantage of a cheaper price, full cancellation conditions apply. The most up to date pricing are available on our website. Prices are based on currency exchange rates as of June 2018; note that prices may vary depending on which currency the booking is made. We reserve the right to impose surcharges up to 30 days before departure due to unfavourable changes in exchange rates, increases in airfares or other transportation costs, increases in local operator costs, taxes, or if government action should require us to do so. In such instances, we will be responsible for any amount up to 2% of the trip price and you will be responsible for the balance. If any surcharge results in an increase of more than 10% of the trip price you may cancel the booking within 14 days of notification of the surcharge and obtain a full refund. Air Passenger Duty is included in the price of your air inclusive trip. Please note that a surcharge may be applied to all purchases made by credit card.
