Caravanserai organizes, promotes, and sells travel programs and travel services that it purchases from other suppliers. The suppliers are independent contractors and are not agents or employees of Caravanserai. They supply services that include, but are not limited to, transportation, accommodations, meals, and excursions using local guides. While we endeavor to make travel arrangements with reputable suppliers, Caravanserai is not responsible for the willful or negligent acts and/or omissions of such suppliers, their employees, agents, servants, or representatives, including, without limitation, their failure or inadequate delivery of services.
All travel and arrangements are subject to the terms and conditions specified by the suppliers, air carriers and/or applicable governing laws. Caravanserai and the suppliers providing transportation or any service can accept no responsibility for losses or additional expenses due to but not limited to delay, inconvenience, changes to or cancellation of itinerary, sickness, weather, strike, war, quarantine, terrorism, defects in vehicles, breakdown in equipment, animals including transportation by animals, hiking, and any act, omission, negligence or other causes beyond their control. All such losses or expenses will be borne by the passenger, as tour rates provide for arrangements only for the time stated. Caravanserai is not responsible for expenses incurred by trip members in preparing for the trip (i.e.: air tickets, visa/passport fees, equipment, medical expenses, individual transfers, etc.).
Assumption of Risk: I am voluntarily participating in the trip with knowledge that it involves some inherent risks and danger including, but not limited to, forces of nature, terrorism, civil unrest, strikes, wild animals (including animals used for transportation), all activities including hiking over rough terrain,theft, cancellation or changes in itinerary, negligent action of others or their agencies, or means of conveyance or accommodation which may not be operated nor maintained to standards common in your home country. This includes health related issues, and I am aware that medical services or facilities may not be readily available or accessible during all or part of my trip. This includes emergency medical care, presence of physicians, and adequate medication. On expeditions of this type it is not possible to accommodate persons with severe health problems or physical disabilities. It is the passenger’s responsibility to judge the appropriateness of the travel activities to their own physical capabilities. By forwarding the deposit, the passenger certifies they agree with these terms and conditions and that they do not have any mental, physical or other condition or disability that would create hazard for them or other passengers. Caravanserai and its suppliers take no responsibility for special arrangements or problems incurred by passengers unable to participate in the planned activities. The right is reserved to decline any person as a member of the tour, or to require any participant to withdraw from the tour at any time.
Insurance: You must have medical insurance, for those attending international tours it must be valid overseas. We strongly recommend that you obtain travel insurance, including coverage for trip cancellation, loss and theft of baggage, and emergency evacuation. Caravanserai cannot be responsible for these expenses. You will be sent insurance information upon enrollment. Insurance payments are non-refundable.

Please note that if Caravanserai cancels a trip extension, you are subject to the cancellation penalty for the main trip should you subsequently decide to cancel your main trip. Individual transfers for those traveling independently are not included in the land cost unless otherwise stated. If the group falls below the minimum paying passenger requirement, the expedition is subject to cancellation or re-pricing.
