Itineraries: Itineraries are subject to change without notice due to, for example, circumstances outside of Indagare’s control.

Unavailability of Host or Hosts: If Indagare has represented that a specific individual shall act as a host or guide for the Program and that individual is unable to participate in the Program, Indagare shall use its best efforts to replace the host or guide with an individual or individuals with similar skills and expertise.

Cancellation Policy: Indagare must strictly adhere to its Cancellation Policy to offset costs incurred prior to the commencement of the Program, which may include but are not limited to: advance payments to land operators; communication expenses; development and the loss of time that might have permitted resale of reserved space; and transaction fees associated with processing your payments or payments. Indagare shall not be liable for any airline cancellation penalties incurred by the purchase of a non-refundable ticket or for any changes to airline policies regarding refunds and credits. In the case of a cancellation due to shortage of participants, Indagare Travel will attempt to notify all participants at least 45 days prior to departure. However, Indagare reserves the right to cancel the Program prior to departure for any reason or due to a force majeure event. Force majeure events include, but are not limited to, acts of God, strikes, wars, civil unrest, acts of terrorism, severe weather, sickness, quarantine, global pandemic or other serious health or safety issues, or governmental restrictions. In most cases if Indagare cancels a program, Indagare will use its best efforts to reschedule the program within a reasonable period of time at no or at as little additional cost as possible to participants. However, if the Program is cancelled and Indagare is unable to reschedule the Program at no cost or for any additional cost, or if you are unable or unwilling to participate in the rescheduled Program, reimbursement of costs Indagare is able to obtain from third party providers for the Program less any transaction fees associated with processing your payment or payments shall be the only refundable costs and receipt of same by you shall constitute full settlement. Upon trip payment to Indagare, you agree to be bound by the above Cancellation Policy.

Insurance: Trip cancellation / emergency medical evacuation / baggage / accident and sickness insurance protection is strongly recommended. Indagare’s Cancellation Policy is strictly enforced. Indagare can provide an insurance quote at the time of booking. Participants may select any insurer of their choice. Most types of travel insurance are only available within a short period of time after booking travel, often within 21 days of such booking. In light of the inherent uncertainties related to travel and your agreement to Indagare’s Refund Policy, Cancellation Policy and these Terms and Conditions, Indagare strongly recommends that you purchase travel-related insurance as that may be your only recourse if you are unable to participate in the Program or if it is cancelled.

Travel Documentation: It is your responsibility to obtain and pay for all the necessary documentation before traveling (visas, passport, tourist card or any other travel documentation required.) Indagare is not responsible if you or any member in your party does not have all the necessary documentation and therefore cannot enter the country on arrival.

Indagare also strongly recommends that you check with the Embassy or Consulate in your home country before traveling.

Not included in tour rates: Costs of obtaining passports; visas; excess baggage charges; items of purely personal nature, such as drinks, laundry, communication (calls, faxes, emails etc.); international airport departure tax (to be paid in US dollars or acceptable foreign currencies); excursions or deviations from any itinerary or program.
