  1. MEDICAL CONDITIONS

You must disclose at the time of booking any medical condition that could affect your ability to participate in the Product. Cachi Life reserves the right to deny a trek booking if we feel that a medical condition may put your life or the lives of any of our trekking staff or other clients at risk on the hike. All Clients are obligated to provide requested relevant medical information to Cachi Life upon booking their tour Product. If a Client(s) has any medical conditions which may have any impact on the Client’s ability to complete activities included in the tour Product, the Client’s ability to travel to remote areas removed from medical facilities, or which may have any impact whatsoever on the Client’s ability to travel or the travel experience of others on the Product tour – that Client must return a medical clearance to participate, duly signed by a licensed, competent and practicing physician, to Cachi Life prior to or in conjunction with that Client’s final payment in respect of the applicable booking. The Client agrees to disclose all medical conditions and warrants to Cachi Life that they will disclose all relevant medical information accurately and fully.

Cachi Life reserves the right to request proof or further information or professional medical opinions in certain instances where it is deemed in the best interests of the Client or necessary for the safe operation of the Products. Cachi Life reserves the right to deny any Client permission to travel or participate in a Product where Cachi Life, acting reasonably, deems necessary with regard to the health and safety of the booking Client, any other Clients traveling with Cachi Life, or Cachi Life staff or representatives, and may use information provided in the Medical Form, expert opinions, and other information in formulating such decision. Cachi Life will provide a written explanation for any such decision upon request from the Client. In the event the Client has made a booking with Cachi Life and subsequently is unable to disclose any medical conditions for any reason by the deadline indicated above, Cachi Life reserves the right to treat such Client’s booking as cancelled, and all applicable cancellation fees shall apply. Clients are responsible for assessing their own suitability and capability to participate in the tour Product that Client has booked. All Clients should consult their physician regarding their fitness for travel, and adventure travel in particular. Cachi Life encourages all Clients to seek their physician’s advice regarding necessary or advisable vaccinations, medical precautions, or other medical concerns regarding the entirety of the Client’s travel with Cachi Life. Cachi Life does not provide medical advice. Certain Products may not be suitable for all people due to restrictions posed by limitations in mobility, physical or cognitive disability, pregnancy or various other physical or mental conditions. It is the Client’s responsibility to assess the risks and requirements of each Product in light of such Client’s limitations, physical and mental fitness and condition, and any medical requirements or issues of such Client. Cachi Life will not carry pregnant women on tours. Cachi Life will not carry Clients with certain conditions, if suitable accommodation or alternate Products or services cannot be arranged. Adventure travel, as offered by Cachi Life, by its nature involves visiting remote or less developed regions, where medical facilities may not meet the standards of those found in a Client’s home country. The condition of medical facilities in the countries in which Cachi Life operates varies and Cachi Life makes no representations and gives no warranties in relation to the standard of such facilities or medical treatment in those regions.

  1. SPECIAL REQUIREMENTS

Cachi Life will endeavor to accommodate the special requests of Clients, including (without limitation) dietary and accommodation requests, but such requests do not form part of these Terms or the contract between Client and Cachi Life and Cachi Life is not liable for any failure to accommodate or fulfill such requests. Client Age Requirements: Clients aged 18 at date of first travel are deemed to be adults. On all Products an adult Client over the age of 18 must accompany every 2 Minor Clients (defined as Clients under the age of 18). Unless otherwise indicated in the tour description, or otherwise by Cachi Life, the minimum age for Clients traveling on tours is 8 years. Minors: All Minor Client bookings are subject to review and approval by Cachi Life. If the consent of a parent or any other person is required by applicable law, judgment, or decree for any Minor Client to travel, the accompanying adult Client is responsible for securing all such proper consent and ensuring that they and the Minor Client meet all legal requirements to travel on the applicable Family Trip and to enter into and depart from applicable countries and regions. Cachi Life will not be responsible for any fees, damages, or losses incurred as a result of any failure on the part of a Client to secure such necessary consents, permits, and approvals. Each Adult on a booking with any Minor Client is joint and severally responsible for the behavior and well being of all Minor Client(s) on such booking, and expressly accepts these Terms on their behalf, including all assumptions of risk and limitations of liability contained herein.

CLIENT ACKNOWLEDGES THAT IS MANDATORY THAT ALL CLIENTS OBTAIN TRAVEL INSURANCE WITH A MINIMUM MEDICAL, EVACUATION, AND REPATRIATION COVERAGE OF US$200,000 covering all applicable dates of any travel with Cachi Life and this insurance must cover personal injury and emergency medical expenses. Prior to each Product tour, a Cachi Life Tour Leader or other Cachi Life representative will verify that all Clients have such insurance in place and coverage as per the required amounts above. It is strongly recommended and encouraged that Client’s also extend their coverage to include cancellation, curtailment, and all other expenses that might arise as a result of loss, damage, injury, delay or inconvenience occurring to the Client. The Client acknowledges that the cost of the tour does not include any insurance coverage for such Client, and that the Client is required to obtain separate coverage at an additional cost to the Product tour price. When obtaining travel insurance, the Client must ensure the insurer is aware of the type of travel to be undertaken so that the insurer may properly cover travel on the applicable Cachi Life Products.

  1. PRICES, SURCHARGES AND TAXES

Due to the nature of Adventure travel and the prices of the resources on which it depends, the published price of any Product is subject to change at any time, before booking confirmation. Tours are priced and advertised exclusive of applicable sales taxes. After a Confirmation Invoice has been issued by Cachi Life to the Client, Cachi Life will not impose surcharges on any Product(s). The price you see when you book is the confirmed price. From time-to-time, Cachi Life may offer reduced pricing on selected Product tours. The reduced pricing applies strictly to new bookings, and bookings that have already been confirmed (which for these purposes shall mean bookings in respect of which payment of at least a deposit has been received by Cachi Life) are not entitled to the reduced pricing.

  1. VALIDITY

All dates, itineraries and prices are indicative only and the price quoted at the time of Booking shall be the applicable price, subject to the surcharges that may be levied in accordance these Terms. Changes, revisions, or other amendments may be made to the particulars contained in any Cachi Life brochure or on the Cachi Life website before a contract is concluded, and such changes, revisions or amendments shall be incorporated herein as of the date of such amendment. The Client acknowledges that due to the changing nature of travel, they are responsible for keeping up to date on the details of their travel on the Cachi Life website, including, but not limited to checking the website at least 72 hours prior to departure to ensure the Client has the most current Trip Details for the relevant Product tour as minor changes may have been made since the confirmation of booking.

  1. CHANGES

Changes made by Cachi Life: Reasonable changes in the itinerary of any Product may be made where deemed necessary or advisable for operational reasons by Cachi Life, in its’ sole discretion. If Cachi Life makes a Material Change (defined as a change affecting at least one in three full tour days of the itinerary, or which materially affects the character of the Product in its entirety) to any Product, Cachi Life will inform the Client(s) booked on such Product of any Material Change as soon as reasonably possible, provided that there is sufficient time before departure to properly notify all affected Clients. If a Material Change is made more than 14 days prior to departure, the affected Client may elect to:

  • i) accept the Material Change and proceed with the amended Product;
  • ii) book another Product of equivalent or greater value, if available (Client shall be responsible for paying any difference in price between the amended Product and the Product booked in its place);
  • iii) book another Product of a lower value, if available, with a refund payable to the Client of the difference in price; or

Once a Product tour has departed, changes to such Product’s itinerary may be necessary or advisable as a result of unforeseen circumstances or other reasons related to effective Product operation, health, safety, Client enjoyment, or Client comfort. Any such changes are at the discretion of Cachi Life. The Client acknowledges that they must have reasonable financial resources to cover incidental expenses on every Product on which they travel, whether or not they arise from a change in the itinerary or from the travel itself, and that Cachi Life shall not be liable for any Client’s failure to prepare adequately for their travel and unforeseen circumstances which may arise during such travel. Cachi Life will not be liable for any indirect and or consequential losses associated with any changes to a Product’s itinerary. Changes made by the Client: Client is responsible for ensuring that information provided to Cachi Life in making their booking is accurate, up-to-date, and correct. Bookings are not transferable to other Products. Any changes to the traveling Client’s name on any Product booking are subject to Cachi Life’s approval. Any changes to a file will depend on availability and will be on a request basis and subject to Cachi Life’s approval.

No changes are permitted to any booking within 30 days of departure of the first Product to depart under the applicable booking.

Standards of hygiene, accommodation and transport in some countries where Product tours take place are often lower than comparable standards than what the Client may reasonably expect in their home country or region. The Client acknowledges that the degree and nature of personal risk involved depends on the nature of the Product booked, or the location(s) in which such Product is to operate, and that there may be a significant degree of personal risk involved in travel on the Product, particularly if such Product involves physical activities, travel to remote locations, carriage by watercraft, participation in “extreme sports” or other high-risk activities, or travel to countries with under-developed infrastructure. The Client acknowledges she or he has considered the potential risks, dangers and challenges in light of their own personal capabilities and needs, and expressly assumes the risks attendant to travel under such conditions. The Client acknowledges and agrees that Cachi Life is not responsible for providing information or guidance to the Client with respect to local customs, weather conditions, specific safety concerns, physical challenges or laws in effect in any locations where Products are operated. The Client must at all times strictly comply with all applicable laws and regulations of all countries and regions visited on the applicable Product tour. Should the Client fail to comply with the above or commit any illegal act when on the tour or, if in the opinion of Cachi Life (acting reasonably), the Client’s behavior is causing or is likely to cause danger, distress or material annoyance to others, Cachi Life may terminate that Client’s travel arrangements on any Product immediately without any liability on Cachi Life’s part and the Client will not be entitled to any refund for unused or missed services or costs incurred resulting from the termination of the travel arrangements, including, without limitation, return travel, accommodations, meals, and/or incidentals. Clients agree that they are responsible for any costs incurred by Cachi Life, Cachi Life’s suppliers or Cachi Life’s partners, as a result of damage, destruction, theft, or excess cleaning fees caused or occasioned by the Client while on tour. Clients agree to immediately report any pre-existing damage of this kind to staff of the accommodation, transportation service, or facility (as appropriate) and/or a Cachi Life’s representative as soon as possible upon discovery by the Client. Client agrees to take all prudent measures in relation to their own safety while on any Cachi Life tour Product, including, but not limited to, the proper use of safety devices such as seat belts, harnesses, and helmets, and obeying all posted signs and warnings in relation to Client health and safety. Cachi Life, nor its Third Party Suppliers (as hereinafter defined) shall not be liable for any failure on the Client’s part to comply safety instructions or recommendations of Cachi Life or its Third Party Suppliers. Client agrees to bring any complaints regarding a Product to Cachi Life as soon as possible in order to provide Cachi Life with the opportunity to address such complaint properly. Client agrees to inform the Tour Leader or other designated Cachi Life representative at the earliest opportunity, or to Cachi Life’s Customer Service department directly. Cachi Life assumes no liability for complaints that are not properly brought to the attention of Cachi Life with sufficient notice for Cachi Life to resolve or attempt to resolve any Client complaints.
