INSURANCE

The guest is obliged to be on time according to the schedule of the activity/transfer. We recommend the guest being at the place of departure/meeting point at least 5-10 minutes before the starting of the programme.  Being late and/or using the wrong bus/transfer does not give the guest the right to any refund or rescheduling of the programme/activity.

The person making the booking needs to make sure that their own travel insurance covers the costs of the booking should he/she need to cancel a reservation in case of sudden illness / injury / death of a close relative or travel party. The cancellation needs to be made as soon as possible to GreenTrek OY. Above cancellation terms apply.

FORCE MAJEURE

If a condition force majeure is encountered, GreenTrek OY shall immediately notify you in writing by email thereof, and shall keep you fully informed of the continuance of the condition force majeure and of any relevant change of circumstances whilst such force majeure continues.

RESPONSIBILITY OF THE PROGRAMME/SERVICE PROVIDER

The programme/service provider carries out its activities exercising the appropriate safety plans and health and safety standards, in accordance with Finnish laws and regulations. GreenTrek OY has liability insurance covering clients while taking part in our excursions.

 

PREGNANCY AND OTHER HEALTH ISSUES 

Some of the programmes and services may be physically demanding and participants may be exposed to various physical strains and stresses. If a participant suspects that his or her health or possible pregnancy is preventing them from participating in a programme or service or suspects that his / her health may be endangered during the programme or service, the participant must receive the permission from his / her physician to participate. The guests always take part in the programmes / services at their own risk. The guest in addition must inform the programme/service provider of any possible health issue, which may affect or be affected by the participation in the programme. If the programme, requires special arrangements (e.g. additional transport), due to the client’s special health issues, the programme provider is not responsible for the possible extra costs. A guest taking part in any programme/service does so at their own risk. 

OTHER DAMAGES & INSURANCE

The programme/service provider may only be held liable for personal or material damages that have occurred in the event of an accident and which were caused by negligence of the programme provider him/herself or their employees or sub-contractors or by the provision of faulty and defective equipment.

The programme/service provider shall not be liable for any accidental damage or injury not due to negligence or faulty equipment as mentioned above. These may be repayable under the participant’s own travel insurance. Personal travel insurance is always highly recommended for any unexpected situations.
