At all times the authority of your tour leader will be final when concerning matters likely to endanger your own health or safety or in regard to behavior or ill health that is causing or is likely to cause danger, distress or disturbance to the group and the well-being of the tour. If your tour leader has found you to have behaved in a way that disrupts or impacts other clients’ experience, in a way that is threatening or abusive to other tour participants or tour staff, in a way that puts other tour participants or staff in danger, or in a way that is illegal or violates the laws of the country in which the tour is operating, the tour leader and the company reserves the right to terminate your participation on the tour. Failure to abide by the authority of the tour leader could result in legal proceedings and the immediate termination of your participation in the tour without recourse.
In such circumstances we reserve the right to terminate all travel arrangements without liability on the part of the company. You must always comply with the local law, customs and drug regulations of the country. Failure to do so may lead to you being ordered to leave the tour without recourse to any refund or any legal claim against the company. In the case of ill health the company and its operators can make those arrangements that it sees fit and recover all monies paid from the client. The person who signs the booking form (which incorporates these conditions) warrants that he/she does so, with full authority on behalf of all those whose names appear thereon, and confirms thereby that all such persons accept and are fully aware of these conditions.
No refund will be given for non-utilized services, however if we are able to obtain a refund ourselves for these services we will endeavor to pass these on to the client less reasonable administration charges.
ThailandBiking pledges never to increase the tour price except under exceptional circumstances for those that have previously booked the tour. Circumstances of this policy include: government action or legislation that directs the company to increase prices.
Clients will be notified of any price increase at least 4 weeks before departure.

The shared use of trip inclusions by persons other than guests with full booking confirmation and payment is not allowed and guests found to be in violation of this will face immediate termination of their tour participation without recourse.
FLIGHTS OR DELAYS
We will not accept any liability for any delay in your outward or inward flight/s, whether the cancellation or delay is caused by the weather, airline rescheduling, industrial action or mechanical failure. We will give no refunds or compensation for lost time and services from the itinerary.
