Textile and Weaving Tours, Oaxaca, Mexico
Terms and Conditions
Payment and Reservations
Reservations are made once we have received 50% of the total cost of the package. The remaining 50% will be payable at least 60 days prior to the date of departure.
Cancellations and Refunds
Once a reservation has been made we will normally need to book the flight, accommodation and certain elements of the tours, transport and courses in advance. If you do need to cancel, we will do our utmost to try to refund you whatever part of the initial fee we have not already paid out but we cannot guarantee a full refund of the money paid. No refund will be payable as from 60 days prior to the commencement of the package. We therefore strongly recommend that you take out a travel insurance policy which will cover cancellation due to unforeseen circumstances. These can normally be purchased as part of your health insurance policy which is obligatory for this package.
All participants will need to take out medical insurance to cover the costs of any medical treatment they may need to receive whilst away, hospitalisation or accompanied return to their own country if medically required. Proof of purchase of the insurance policy will need to be included when returning these signed terms and conditions. Most insurance companies will offer an all inclusive holiday policy which will cover all health issues, loss of valuables and third party accidents. An insurance policy covering 11 days of travel, not involving dangerous activities and not in the USA will normal be very moderately priced (e.g. £50-100).
