TERMS & CONDITIONS

Payment:

All payments should be made in Euro (€) or US dollars (usd) depending on the program.

Payment schedule:

When you book an expedition, a 50% of trip cost is required to reserve the date for your trip. The remaining balance for your trip will be due at the moment you meet your guide at the beguining of the trip.

Cancellations and refunds:

Cancellations must be sent by mail to office@rossiniguiding.com. At the time we receive your statement, the following fees will apply:
– From the time of reservation to 30 days prior to departure: €100
– 30 days or less prior to departure: 50% of cost of the trip.

All of our trips are offered as a package and no refunds are offered for services not used during a trip. We are not responsible for any other costs incurred by the traveler related to the canceled trip, including but not limited to: clothing, air tickets, visas, passports and hotel reservations.

Bad weather and/or bad mountain conditions:

In case that bad weather doesn ́t allow the group to make the tour (or expedition), or the mounatin conditions are not adequate to ensure a minimum of security of the group, Rossini Guiding reserves the right to change the program, all or a part of it at any time. Group members will be informed as soon as possible of any changes. Costs associated with these changes are the sole responsibility of the travelers, and are not included in the price of our guide services.

Delays:

In the event that we are forced to delay a trip, the costs related to the delay are the sole responsibility of the travelers, and are not included in the price of our guide services. Delays caused by, but not limited to, bad weather, road conditions, equipment failure, government intervention, natural disasters, sickness or any other contingency for which Rossini Guiding and its staff cannot make any provisions are not included in our guiding services. Costs incurred by travelers while waiting out a delay are not included in our services.

Changing your reservations:

You may transfer your reservation to another trip with us up to one month prior to departure. A full amount credit will be given towards the purchase of a different trip. After that period of time you’ll be subject to the same penalties for trip cancellation. Private expeditions are non-transferable and cancellation fees apply. Purchasing travel insurance that covers trip cancellation is the best way to protect your investment.

After making your initial deposit, you agree to be bound to the above terms and conditions.

Medical:

Mostly of our trips have special fitness requirements and physically demanding, so a medical form must be completed and submitted prior to departure.
Rossini Guiding reserves the right to disqualify any trip member that appear to be mentally or physically unfit to complete the trip/expedition. No refunds are given in such cases. Rossini Guiding assumes no liability regarding provision of medical care. The mountains at the Alps and Andes are still a place where it is sometimes necessary to drive hours to reach medical help; evacuation can be costly and slow. The cost of our trips does not include medical or evacuation insurance. We strongly encourage you to purchase insurance from a licensed insurance agent or broker.
