Terms & Conditions

Please Read Carefully

Reservations, Deposits & Final Payment
You must be at least 18 years of age, with the exceptions of teenagers accompanied by a responsible adult or custom family tours. To reserve space, a deposit of $400 per person is required. You can also call, e-mail or fax us to reserve space and we will hold your reservation for seven days pending receipt of deposit. Payments may be made using check, MasterCard or Visa, with balances due 60 days prior to departure.

Single Supplement
Single travelers are usually charged a fee of 15% of tour cost unless otherwise stated in tour description. Single travelers are welcome and we certainly do not want to penalize anyone for traveling alone, yet our tours are designed and priced with the assumption of double occupancy of double rooms. We will do our best to provide double rooms for single use for anyone paying the single supplement. Andiamo will also be happy to match clients as roommates, but cannot guarantee availability of a roommate. We will never surprise you with additional charges during a tour.

Pre & Post Tour
We highly recommend that you arrive at least two days prior to your tour date in order to acclimate to any time differences, thus being prepared to fully enjoy your tour. For your convenience, we are able to make reservations at recommended hotels in major cities before or after your tour. When making your tour reservations, please inquire about hotel selections.

Arrivals and Departures
Upon sign-up, guests will receive detailed information about where and when their tour convenes and how to arrange transportation to the meeting point. Tours begin and end at a designated time and place, usually a train station or a hotel lobby. One of us will meet you and in the case of late arrivals you will be responsible for transportation to the designated beginning hotel.

Waiting Lists
We will maintain a waiting list to fill any vacancies arising from cancellations, however, we highly recommend early reservations as our tours are designed for a limited number of people and can fill up quickly.

Late Booking Fee
A $50.00 late fee will apply if booking within 14 days of departure.

Changing of Tour or Departure Date
If you decide to change either your tour or departure date after your initial reservation, the same transfer fees as outlined under "Cancellations and refunds" shall apply. Andiamo Adventours also reserves the right to alter the itinerary. Tour reservations are made far in advance and during some tours weather may mandate changes.

Tour Cancellation by Andiamo
We reserve the right to cancel any tour due to acts of nature and/or any other occurrence out of our control. We must reserve the right to cancel any trip prior to departure for any reason. In such cases, Andiamo is not responsible for any additional expenses that may be incurred by a client in relation to a canceled tour (i.e., purchase of non refundable airline tickets, visa fees, equipment or additional lodging). We will notify you at least 30 days before departure and full refund of the tour price will constitute full settlement to our clients in the case of inadequate group size to cancel a tour.

Refunds for Services Not Used
Our tours are sold as a package. Credit cannot be given for services not used by a client. This includes accommodations, meals, or any other arrangements not used or performed for any reason, including acts of God.

Trip Cancellation Insurance
We strongly recommend that you purchase trip cancellation insurance. We are not able to vary from our stated refund policy regardless of your situation. Trip cancellation insurance will protect all deposits and payments for land and air costs if you are required to cancel your tour due to personal or family illness. We will mail you the necessary forms for purchase of this insurance.

Medical Insurance
We recommend all clients carry medical and personal insurance to cover hospital and other medical expenses and loss of baggage or personal belongings. If you are involved in our Swiss Alp trek, Central Switzerland or Grindelwald mountain bike tours then emergency evacuation insurance may be required.
