Trip participants are responsible for their own well being. This includes being in good health and strong physical condition. Participants joining an adventure travel and/or walking tour should consult with a physician, and even obtain a physician’s release prior to departure. Participants are responsible for: knowing all pre-departure information, preparing and bringing proper equipment and clothing, conforming to basic standards of personal hygiene (to minimize the risk of travelers diseases), and acting in a considerate and polite manner toward all group members, to the guide/s, and to local restaurant and hotel staff, and with respect for each country’s customs. No refunds will be given if the trip participant chooses to leave the trip for any reason, or if the trip participant leaves the trip due to medical or physical reasons, or if the guide deems the person not healthy or strong enough physically to continue on the trip or on a walk/hike, or if they have an injury that the guide deems unsafe for the trail or the trip as a whole. All trip participants are responsible for any and all expenses incurred if they leave the tour or if they get sick or injured or need an evacuation.

BOOKING A NEW TRIP
Prices are per person based on double occupancy, quoted in US dollars, and are set well in advance of the trip departure date. Our prices vary depending on a variety of cost factors, with peak travel dates being the most expensive. Prices may change during the course of the year. You can always find the most current prices on our website, or by calling us. Prices cover land costs only; they do not include airfare to and from the trip or delays getting to the trip. Trip prices include baggage transfers, porterage and all ground transportation during your trip. Please see the web page for each trip for the specific details for all items included and not included in the trip price for each specific trip as they do vary depending on the trip.
Deposits may be made on our website via credit card on PayPal and/or by check, money order, wire transfer in US or AUS dollars or a major credit card.
The deposit is $500 per person for Scheduled Departures.
For Private & Custom Departures a $2,000 group deposit is required to initiate your request and secure your itinerary for your group. The Private Trip deposit is refundable (minus a $250 administrative/booking fee) for two weeks while you gather your group. Once confirmed, the initial $2,000 deposit may be applied toward the first two individuals to sign up and a $1,000 per person deposit is required for subsequent guests. If we are creating custom dates for your group or a private trip for you, the $2,000 deposit is non-refundable once the date is confirmed by us.
Paying Your Balance: The balance of your trip cost is due 120 days before the start date of your trip. We will send you an invoice for the balance due. Balances may be paid by PayPal, check, money order, wire transfer in US dollars or by major credit card.

Travel Insurance Policy: We strongly suggest taking out Travel Insurance for all Right Path Adventure tours. Given the active nature of our vacations—and your lifestyle—we know unexpected things that could impact your trip!
No one likes to think about what could go wrong on vacation, travel insurance may help protect your investment from unforeseen circumstances before and during your trip such as: Sickness or injury; Job loss or relocation; Travel delays or trip interruption; Lost or delayed luggage; Death or illness in the family; Hurricane, fire and other natural disasters; Medical evacuation; COVID-19 positive test result; Civil disturbances such as war; And other covered reasons.
Please note if you leave a trip early for any reason you will not receive a refund and any and all costs of leaving early will be your responsibility.
In the unfortunate event you must cancel your trip, you will be responsible for any cancellation fees incurred, up to 100% of your trip price. A travel protection plan can help to protect your vacation investment up to 100% of your trip cost for cancellation due to unforeseen covered reasons and is a small price to pay for some peace of mind.
Guest Transfer & Cancellation Policy: If you must cancel your reservation, your cancellation fee will be determined according to the terms outlined below.
Scheduled Trips: Transfers to another trip or credit on account for a future trip are only allowed before the final payment due date, after which time cancellation fees apply. If the new trip costs more than your original trip, you must pay the difference. Reductions in the group size may result in an increased trip price due at final payment.
Private & Custom Trips: Transfers to another trip or credit on account for a future trip are only allowed 120 days prior to the trip, after which time cancellation fees apply. If the new trip costs more than your original trip, you must pay the difference. Reductions in the group size may result in an increased trip price due at final payment.
Exceptions to our cancellation policy cannot be made for any reason, including but not limited to weather, terrorism, civil unrest, epidemics or the threat thereof, personal, family or medical emergencies or force of nature. There is no refund for arriving late or leaving a trip early. Private and upgraded rooms are considered part of the total trip cost and are subject to cancellation fees. We encourage guests to consider comprehensive Travel Protection plans for cancellation reasons that fall outside of our policy.
Right Path Adventures reserves the right to suspend departures in cases of force of nature or the failure of third parties—such as hotels — and to honor their reservations, in which case, all payments received to date will be transferred on account for use on a future trip (must be used within 24 months).
