Terms & Conditions

START AND END OF OUR SERVICES 

The services provided by Tripcultr are overland. They start at the time when the customer receives the first service provided by our company (always following the border and customs formalities), and end when the customer receives the last scheduled service (transfer, breakfast or the corresponding service, according to the purchased package). Tripcultr is not responsible for the consequences or circumstances arising from services that are not provided by our company (flight disruptions, loss or damage of luggage on flights, problems at borders/customs or those related to personal documentation, etc.).

CANCELLATIONS 

Tripcultr cannot treat any reservation as cancelled while the online cancellation has not been completed. The travel agent will check the receipt of the final cancellation that will arrive from Tripcultr following the online cancellation, ensuring that all the details specified are correct. The customer may cancel the requested or booked services at any time, whereby they are entitled to a refund for the paid amount, but must compensate the agency, except in cases of force majeure, as per the following: The processing costs plus the cancellation cost, if these have been incurred, once the journey has been confirmed by Tripcultr and regardless of the departure date.

At time of booking confirmation: Euro 100 or equivalent in Indian rupee.

No shows at the start of the trip, without prior cancellation, will not be entitled to any refund (except force majeure cases, which will be examined on a case by case basis).

Different cancellation conditions apply for some programs (circuits that include train / airplane / cruise) and during particularly difficult dates (fairs, special events, periods involving increased hotel booking difficulties).

The representative operator may, in turn, charge for the processing fees that have accrued in accordance with the provisions of the laws in the country where the sale occurs.

  • In the event that the cancellation prior to the trip is produced by justified and demonstrable cases of force majeure, only the costs of processing and services that cannot be cancelled will be charged, as well as the costs that must be absorbed by other suppliers (transfer on arrival, hotel in first city stay in the absence of prior notice, etc.). We recommend buying an insurance policy with the company of your choice, covering the cancellation costs in all cases.
  • In the event that, during the tour, a customer has to cancel their tour for reasons of force majeure, they will be entitled to a refund proportionally to the paid amount / time not used. The processing fees and expenses incurred will be charged in all cases. In order to calculate this amount, only the services provided by Tripcultr will be taken into account (excluding the sectors undertaken by air, except on those tours that have flights included), and the refund is made on the amount charged by Tripcultr to the tour operator (which is therefore subject to a deduction for the commission paid).
  • In instances where, following the withdrawal or cancellation of any passenger en route, the category of room occupancy is reduced (from double to single, or from triple to double), the difference in the cost of this, if applicable, will be passed on in the amount owed to the customer that has cancelled.

CHANGES 

Changes made to a confirmed booking prior to the start of a trip and more than 10 days before departure (changes to arrival or departure date, change of tour, etc.) are subject to a penalty equivalent to the processing fees that are listed in the cancellation section.

NON-ADMITTANCE OF PASSENGERS 

A moderate degree of physical health and physical ability is required to participate in our tours. In the event of any passenger with special physical or mental needs, or in cases where a passenger over 80 years of age is travelling alone, Tripcultr must be informed in writing at the time of booking, which will be analysed on a case by case basis, and it is possible that Tripcultr may request the additional documentation considered necessary. In cases in which the customer accepts the tour, Tripcultr cannot assume any responsibility in relation to the difficulty or impossibility that the said passenger may encounter in undertaking the activities planned for the tour package, nor can Tripcultr assume any responsibility for providing assistance for their adaptation to, or continuation of, the trip.

In extreme cases, they must travel accompanied by a person who guarantees assistance and care for their correct adaptation to the circuit, costs at their expense.

No reservations will be accepted and Tripcultr reserves the right to suspend any tour for passengers whose physical and/or mental conditions make their participation in it very difficult or dangerous to themselves or others.

Tripcultr likewise reserves the right to exclude passengers who significantly disrupt the smooth-running of the trip.

DOCUMENTATION 

All passengers must bring their valid documentation (passport, visas, health certificates, etc.), with the problems and disadvantages that may arise from non-compliance with this norm being their full responsibility. The interruption of the services taken out is not considered “Cancellation for force majeure” where the passenger is not carrying the required documentation or in instances where the traveller is denied passage through any border for this reason. It should be pointed out that we often note that the European border authorities deny transit to passengers who they believe have acquired the trip for purposes other than tourism (immigrants). Tripcultr cannot undertake any arrangements or make any reimbursement for services that cannot be used in such cases. Cancelling a tour before it starts due to a rejected visa application is, however, considered to be through force majeure (provided that this is documented or noted in the passport, and that we are notified within 72 hours following the refusal).

GUARANTEED DEPARTURES 

All our tours have guaranteed departures, although in extremely limited cases, it could transpire that Tripcultr is unable to operate a given departure. In these cases Tripcultr will provide the same trip on an earlier or later date than the one chosen or another trip with similar features vis-à-vis duration and route, and offer, by way of compensation, a reduction of 50% on the value of the aforementioned journey. Cancellations of guaranteed departures may arise (without compensation or liability on behalf of Tripcultr) in cases of exceptional unforeseen circumstances - among others - wartime conflicts, terrorist attacks, natural disasters, epidemics and economic circumstances that generate a very significant drop in the expected sales.

THE PRICE INCLUDES 

In each route, Tripcultr specifies the services included on the trip. As a general rule, a strictly literal approach must be followed that leads to the conclusion that, what is not specifically listed as included in the tour price, is excluded.

-Assistance: All our overland routes, unless otherwise noted, include the support of accompanying tour guides (English speaking) and local guides, if so specified. On some tours, according to the number of passengers, the service may be provided in bilingual (usually in English and Spanish). There will be no assistance from any guides on additional nights, either at the beginning or end of the tour. If the customer undertakes a sector of a circuit, the assistance of the guides begins at the moment when the group that constitutes the tour arrives in the place where the passenger will join it.

-Itineraries: All the detailed itineraries can be found on the website: www.tripcultr.com. On many routes, there will be a change of coach / guide during the tour. Under exceptional circumstances, Tripcultr reserves the right to modify the sites visited, the order of the visits or the stages of the itineraries.

-Hotels: Full details of the hotels are available on our website www.tripcultr.com. While this information is indicative of the standard of planned hotels, the final list of hotels that are confirmed for the trip will be sent on mail before starting the circuit. We might be obliged to replace the foreseen hotel, in some cases especially during the high season, with other similar of the same category before arriving at the destination. The passenger is responsible for all damages caused in the hotels / coaches, for injuries caused to other passengers and third parties, as well as for fines and expenses that Tripcultr is obliged to pay to the authorities on their behalf.

-Travel Insurance: Tripcultr has arranged a basic travel insurance policy with Europ Assistance for all its passengers. This insurance provides coverage from the time that the provided services by Tripcultr commence and continues until their completion (not including public transportation to join the tour such as airline services). Tripcultr cannot assume any liability in cases where the insurance Co. considers that the policy does not cover the expenses claimed by the traveller, regardless of the reason that may lead to such a situation. For passengers own safety, Tripcultr suggests purchasing an optional insurance in addition to the one included in the tours.

-Transport: The services provided by Tripcultr are overland and are made by coach, with the size of the vehicle being adapted according to the number of passengers. Tripcultr does not have coaches with access ramps for wheelchairs. If the number of registered participants on a circuit is very low, in order to fulfil our commitment of “Guaranteed Departures”, Tripcultr may provide as a transport a private vehicle or minivan driven by our guide. Likewise, a section of the trip could be undertaken by regular train, airplane, bus or cruise, in which case, customers will not be assisted by an accompanying tour guide. On numerous routes, there will be one or more changes of coach / guide during the tour.

- Toilets on coaches: Many coaches do not have a toilet. Where toilets are available, travellers are asked to limit its use (due to odours and absence of places where emptying and cleaning). Some coaches are fitted with toilets provided on a fee-paying basis (thus allowing free but moderate usage).

OUR PRICES DO NOT INCLUDE 

In general, any service that is not detailed as being included in the program, contract or information will be provided to the traveller, e.g.: airport taxes, visas, taxes to enter or leave a country, tips (which are obligatory, as specified on the voucher, for few destinations like the USA, and must be paid directly on arrival to the driver and/or guide), extras in hotels, optional activities, and usually drinks during meals.

-“Stop Yes” additional fee is applied in case of requesting a Stop on route for EUR 40 / USD 44 per person.

-Shared bookings fee: See the specific section later.

MEETING POINT OR DEPARTURE POINT 

Unless otherwise stated, the starting point for the beginning of a tour is the hotel, if this was booked as an additional night or as a stop-over or end-point for another Tripcultr itinerary. It is very important that travellers check the place of departure on their voucher. No shows at that place on the date and time confirmed can involve losing the purchased services without any right to a refund of the same, with a lack of punctuality incurring the same consequences, both at the beginning of a tour and during the course of the same.

ADDITIONAL NIGHTS 

The possibility of hiring “Additional Nights” is only valid for travellers who purchase tours with Tripcultr, provided that these nights immediately precede or are a direct extension of our tour. Given that Tripcultr has no rooms reserved in hotels for these additional nights, we cannot guarantee either the rate (which in periods of high hotel occupancy or difficulty may vary), or the hotel that is booked, which in many cases will be confirmed last minute.

TRANSFERS POLICY 

Included transfers for the trip are specified on a tour by tour basis. In the event that transfers are included, these could be private or shared with other passengers. They may be provided from hotel to hotel or from the airport / train station / port in the city where the passenger will join the tour to the hotel (or vice versa), not private addresses, at the beginning or end of the trip. A passenger will lose the right of the transfer if he arranges nights in between, before and/or after through a different travel company or if the airport / port is located at a distance further than 40 km. In the event that the traveller requests a change of this service, the information must be supplied by the passenger and be correct on the flight / train number or hotel name, being the passenger or the travel agent’s responsibility. The driver will wait a maximum of 1 hour time. In case the passenger is retained or delayed due to any cause inside the airport, he should call the transfer contact number provided in the voucher.

DOUBLE-BED ROOMS & TRIPLE ROOMS 

Tripcultr cannot guarantee that all the rooms in the hotels will have double beds and it is possible that, in some hotels, the room will be a twin room (two single beds). In many hotels there are no triple rooms, with these actually being a double room (one or two beds) with an additional bed which in some cases might be a sofa-bed or a folding bed resulting in conditions, space available and comfort lower than double rooms. We do not recommend booking triple rooms for three adults; we would only suggest this for families travelling with a child.

LUGGAGE - LIMITS OF RESPONSIBILITY 

The luggage allowed for each passenger on our tours is limited to a maximum of 30 kg per person (note airlines and trains have their own limits, normally lower, to be respected). Tripcultr may refuse to accept excessively bulky luggage. Tripcultr is only responsible for the luggage, one piece per person and with the limits of the insurance policy included, when it is travelling inside the coach trunk (not allowed to leave it inside overnight). The passenger is fully responsible for its luggage during the entire journey except in the above mentioned case. We recommend keeping personal belongings such as basic and important documents (passport,…), money, jewellery, electronic items or valuables in the safety boxes of the hotels, most of the time existing in the rooms, sometimes in the Reception. Tripcultr will not accept any liability for the loss or theft of luggage occurring at the hotels nor responsibility for the loss or theft of the above mentioned belongings even when this occurs in the rooms of the hotels or if the items have been deposited in the safety box. In the event that passengers travel with luggage that has a higher value than is covered in the included insurance policy, we recommend making a declaration for these items before starting a tour and purchase an extra insurance policy.

EMERGENCY TELEPHONE 

In the event that an emergency arises during the tour, the passenger should inform as soon as possible the accompanying tour guide. Furthermore, Tripcultr provides a 24 hour emergency telephone service according to the destination country for urgent and important matters, which passengers can use, and details can be found on their voucher. Non urgent matters will not be dealt with on these calls, and nor will they respond to questions that do not relate to emergencies en route (reservations, rates, questions about availability, etc.).

CHANGES IN PRICES 

In countries where our catalogues publish the prices of European circuits in USD, the published prices were calculated at the prevailing exchange rate at the time the catalogue was created (November 2017) and these will not be modified if the average monthly exchange rate the month before the date in which the booking was made, was not less than 1,10 USD / EUR and not more than 1,29 USD / EUR. In the event of variations above or below the specified values, the prices of this manual will be altered (increased or decreased) in the same proportion.

PRICES 2020

In the event customers wish to take a trip during 2020 which starts after the specified dates in this catalogue, Tripcultr will maintain the price indicated in this brochure (except on specific dates) if passengers reserve on firm basis with a deposit being received before the 15th of January 2020. This booking does not allow changes on the itinerary, departure date or names. Tripcultr will not accept any responsibility for the variations resulting from the possible changes made in the itineraries between different seasons.

TRAVEL INSURANCE - Travel with complete peace of mind

Tripcultr has taken out travel insurance with Europ Assistance to cover all of its passengers. The policy comes into effect on arriving at the destination, at the start of the services with Tripcultr and it expires when the circuit arranged by our company has ended.

Detailed information on the General Terms and Conditions and exclusions of the policy is available here and www.tripcultr.com or it can be requested from Europ Assistance España S.A. de Seguros y Reaseguros.

COMPLAINTS 

In the event of any breach of the contracted services, Tripcultr requests that passengers ask our accompanying tour guide or correspondent representative for a written note that specifies the aforementioned failure. In the event that this is not feasible for one reason or another, please let us know as soon as possible about the infringement that has been noted so that we can try to find a quick solution to the problem. Tripcultr guarantees that it will respond to all written reports and complaints that are received within 40 days following the date that the trip is completed, through the operator that made the sale in the country of origin. Tripcultr will not deal with complaints that are received after the specified date, given the difficulty of making the appropriate inquiries after a long period of time has elapsed.

Destination Details

Best time to Visit:

The best time to go to Mexico is throughout the time of year between Gregorian calendar month and Gregorian calendar month, once there's nearly no rain. The coolest months area unit between Gregorian calendar month and February, though temperatures will still reach averages of 28℃ throughout the time of year. The wet season begins within the south in could and lasts till Oct.

Guatemala contains a pleasant climate that lends itself to year-around visits. The time of year runs from Gregorian calendar month to Apr, however even within the wet season the rain is usually just for some of hours every day within the main traveller regions.

Things to buy:

The best buys are Myan wooden mask, Mexican Chocolates, Xtabentun Liqueur, Mexican coffee, Taxco silver jewellery. The Mexican city of Taxco is legendary for its silver work, whereas natural stones, like turquoise, jade, amethyst and coral, are mined in many different parts of the Latin country.

Ron Zacapa, Quetzalteca, Guatemalan low, Jade jewellery, Table runner, Pottery, Masks.

What to do:

No matter what you want to do in Mexico City, don't miss Mexico City’s top sights, including the National Museum of Anthropology in Chapultepec Park, containing the most important collection of Mesoamerican artefacts in the world. Another must-see is the Basilica de Guadalupe, located on the hill where the Virgin of Guadalupe, patron saint of Mexico, appeared to Juan Diego. Mexico has a number of the foremost lovely beaches within the World. Some of the small beach towns on the Costa Maya or Baja California. And if you prefer to enjoy your beach time in your birthday suit rather than a bathing suit, you might be interested in Mexico’s nude beaches and resorts or the over-the-top sexy Temptation Resort in Cancun an adults-only, all-inclusive resort touted as "The Playground for Grown-Ups." You can visit one of these lovely and fascinating colonial cities, many of which have been recognized by UNESCO – Guadalajara, Merida, Morelia, Puebla, Oaxaca, Taxco. There are lots of opportunities to practice water sports and adventure tourism in Mexico. Get your adrenaline rushing as you zip-line through the jungle or explore an underground river.

Antigua is one in every of the foremost spectacular colonial cities in Central America. The city’s cobbled streets area unit sufficiently small to urge around on foot, and it's simple to lose yourself within the beautiful Spanish colonial design. You’ll bump into pretty very little squares, street markets, lovely churches and friendly locals – ready against a scene of smoking volcanoes. Antigua is that the excellent introduction to the current fascinating country. Lake Atitlán was once referred to as “the most lovely lake within the world” by British writer writer. He wasn’t wrong. fashioned over a 1,00,000 years ago, it's encircled by volcanoes and a patchwork of Mayan farms. arousal the lake area unit many charming autochthonic villages wherever the locals still wear ancient Mayan dress. an honest base is Panajachel. From here you'll take a ship trip across the lake or, if you are feeling active, go hiking on trails that cause the volcanoes and pine forests. The natural pools of Semac Champey area unit completely lovely, with turquoise-coloured water encircled by high granite cliffs and forest. it would be a pain to succeed in the pools on an extended bus journey, however your efforts are richly rewarded. i like to recommend hiring a 4x4 or taking associate unionized excursion. within the high noon heat, you'll dabble within the refreshing cool waters.
