When any event is booked through an approved travel agent, all communication/changes/enquiry in relation to the event will only be accepted through the travel agent only.
After the acceptance of the booking, the company will issue a confirmation invoice to you. You are advised to please go through the confirmation invoice carefully and inform the company of any changes, if required to be made. Names and identity proof provided by you must be legally valid and self-attested. Travel documents/itinerary will be sent or emailed to you well in time before the departure of your tour, but will not be issued unless payment of the due balance has been received and any pending cheques have been cleared.
Your personal safety is of paramount importance to us and therefore it is imperative that you inform us in writing, at the time of booking, of any condition (medical or otherwise) that needs any special care/attention and that might affect your or other people’s experience during the event. You agree to provide any/all information that may be asked by government authorities / border control / security agencies for the purpose of security and counter terrorism. This is known as Advance Passenger Information. The information you must provide will include, but not be limited to, full name – as shown in your passport or travel document, gender, age, nationality, travel document type, and number. For Indian nationals, this information may be provided only for the person making the booking (lead booking participant) but for Non-Indian nationals, the same might be asked from all participants.
In case of bookings made by paying partial amount, you are expected to make the balance payment at least 15 days prior to the departure date (w.r.t. to the published itinerary of the event & batch booked). In case the balance payment is not made at least 15 days prior to the departure date, then the booking would be deemed cancelled and First Pilgrim would not be liable towards any cash refund. However, you can request for a voucher refund and the same would be treated as per the cancellation policy.
Visa, Health, Passport, Travel Documentation:
Whilst we are able to provide basic advice/information to clients regarding passports and visa requirements, it will be your sole responsibility you are required to check/verify with the appropriate embassy or the consulate for the exact requirements for your chosen event and date of travel. We cannot accept responsibility for any failure to comply resulting in any costs or fines being incurred.
Local Laws & Customs:
Laws and customs of the areas we visit can be very different to those we are used to. Be aware of your actions to ensure that they do not offend, especially if you are visiting religious areas. It is your responsibility to familiarize yourself with, and respect local laws and customs. If you fail to do so, we will have no liability to you for any cost, loss or damage which you suffer nor will we refund you the cost of any unused portion of your travel arrangements.
Behaviour (Leaders + Yours):
On any event, it is necessary that you abide by the authority of the leader, who represents the Company. If you commit any illegal act when on the event or if in reasonable opinion of the leader or another person in authority your behaviour is disruptive, threatening or abusive, causes unnecessary inconvenience or is causing or likely to cause damage to property, danger, distress or upset, disturbance or annoyance to others or puts any other traveller or our staff in any risk or danger, on the telephone, in writing or in person, we may terminate your travel arrangements without any liability on our part. In any of these circumstances no refunds or compensation will be paid to you and we will not be liable for any costs or expenses you incur.
You are required to behave in a manner that is acceptable and conducive to group travel. First Pilgrim reserves the right to terminate your trip (if you are found to be causing distress / annoyance to co-travellers, endanger / damage property of any supplier or of other travelling companions), without assigning any reason whatsoever. No refund for unused services is possible in such cases.
You also agree to abide by the authority of the group leader designated by First Pilgrim. The decision of the tour leader is binding on all participants on matters that affect the safety or well-being of any person participating in the trip. Behaviour that causes danger, distress or annoyance to others, or interferes with the mobility of the group can result in the group leader terminating your participation from the trip, with no right to refund for missed or unused services.
Any accommodation we arrange for you, must only be used by those people named on your Confirmation Invoice. You are not allowed to share the accommodation or let anyone else stay there. You are responsible for the cost of any damage caused to your accommodation or its contents during your stay. These charges must be met by you and may have to be paid locally.
First Pilgrim makes every effort to ensure comfort of our guests, but First Pilgrim requests your understanding that the amenities in the Himalayan region may not be same as the ones you are accustomed to, at home. Weather is another factor that will have direct impact on your journey. Hence, you are requested to have patience, enthusiasm and be prepared for compromises before you choose to undertake this journey.
We will consider special requests such as dietary requirements or specific rooming arrangements when you book. We will tell you whether there is a charge for the request. We can only guarantee requests for which there is a charge, or those that are confirmed in writing. It is your responsibility to advise us of any special requirements through email after you confirm your booking.
One special request that we get on most of our trekking events is carrying of backpacks on mules / porters. We highly recommend that the personal backpack be carried by the participant themselves because your rucksack can be a life saver in the mountains when faced with unforeseen situations. However, in case a person is absolutely not able to carry or is feeling sick, he/she can offload by paying a charge as per the rates below:
INR 400 per bag* per day# when the logistics of the event are managed through mules
INR 600 per bag* per day# when the logistics of the event are managed through porters
* Each bag should not be more than 12 Kg in weight. This weight limit is a reference for maximum weight but bags shall be counted in number to calculate the charges.
# Number of days would be counted as the difference between start & end date of baggage carrying. In case there are rest days in between, the same would be included in counting the number of days.
Cash payments should be made in advance to the Leader/Guide, either at the time of making baggage carrying request or beginning of the trek, whichever is later.
All clients are expected to satisfy themselves prior to booking that they are fit and able to complete the itinerary of their chosen event as described in the itinerary. No unaccompanied minors (those under 18 years of age) can be accepted however minors aged between 10 -17 years may accompany their parent or guardian who accepts full responsibility for them. Anyone suffering from mobility impairment, illness or disability or undergoing treatment for any physical or mental condition must declare the true nature of such condition at the time of booking and make arrangements for the provision of any medication or other treatment which may be required during the event. Failure to make such disclosure will constitute a breach of these booking conditions and result in such persons being excluded from the event in which case all monies paid will be forfeit. Please contact us if you wish to find out more information.
For expeditions that involve road journey or travel, participants are advised to take utmost care of the road safety norms. Any indiscipline regarding road safety or risky riding/driving by the participant may force our team to restrict/suspend/terminate the participant’s ride/drive.
