Some of PLANET ODYSSEYS itineraries have been designed to provide participants with an exposure to the true nature of the environment visited. They therefore involve an element of personal risk, which could result in physical or emotional injury, paralysis, death, or damage to the client, his/her property or to third parties. The client understands that such risks simply cannot be eliminated without jeopardizing the essential qualities of the activity and therefore assumes them as part of the tour. The client accepts that he/she is aware of his physical and health condition and that, under the knowledge of this he/she decides to undertake the above-mentioned risks. The client excludes PLANET ODYSSEYS from any responsibility linked to any accident or injury that may occur.
At all times the decision of the company’s guide or representative will be final on all matters likely to endanger the safety and well-being of the tour group. You have to follow the instructions of the guide at all times.
The client must at all times strictly comply with the laws and drug regulations of Peru. Should the client fail to comply with the above, or should the client interfere with the well being of the group then the guide or company representative may order the client to leave the tour without any refund.
The client must be in possession of a valid passport. The original document or at least a copy has to be carried in the tour.
We strongly advise you to get travel insurance that covers accidents, medical expenses and emergency repatriation, including rescue and air ambulance. We also recommend that it covers cancellations and loss of luggage.
PLANET ODYSSEYS directly operates part of the services included in a program but also makes arrangements with airlines, hotels and other independent parties to provide you with the travel services you purchase. We do take all reasonable steps to ensure that organizations providing services maintain our quality standards. However, these parties are independent suppliers over whom we have no direct full control.
PLANET ODYSSEYS can therefore not accept any liability for any, losses, damages, inconveniences, delays etc.
If a client has a complaint against the company the client must first inform the guide while on the tour in order that the guide can attempt to rectify the matter. Any further complaint must be put in writing to the company within 7 days of the end of the tour.
Venue for all claims or disputes shall be exclusively in Puno, Peru, whose courts, using Peruvian Law, shall have exclusive jurisdiction.
Damage claims against PLANET ODYSSEYS shall be limited to the value of the particular item in dispute. Any liability is limited to the full price paid for the tour. In all cases the company specifically excludes all liability for indirect, incidental or consequential loss or expense including loss of profits.
