Booking in Advance and Payments
If you wish to embark on an adventure through Godiyals, you are required to book a trip 3 months prior to departure. A three month preparation period is necessary to ensure both maximum safety and satisfaction for the clients.
The client must pay 30%of the total charge at the time of booking. This is necessary for booking hotels, flights and potters, and receiving approval from governmental authorities. Another 30%of the total charge is required one month before departure. The remaining 40% of the total charge should be paid up after your arrival to Nepal, before the start of your adventure.
If the client decides to cancel the trip, at any time between booking and the time of the trip, some deduction will be made to the advanced amount. This is because the company is obligated to pay a certain amount for personnel and resources while booking the trip.
Late booking can be done up to one month prior to departure for an additional cost.
Insurance and Travel Risks
The law dictates that no foreigner will be able to purchase insurance in Nepal. Hence, it is important for the clients to purchase a travel insurance package in their own country. Trekking may involve risks. Medical emergencies and natural calamities are common in high altitudes and we like to be assured that our clients are insured against helicopter evacuations, trip cancellations, and personal accidents.
This agency will inquire about a client’s personal and insurance information so that the proper paperwork and other steps can be taken in the case of an unpredictable situation. If a rescue is needed, our company will contact rescue companies and manage all of the paperwork.
The company shall not bear any losses or provide compensation in the case that the guest’s insurance does not cover any or all aspects of the trip.
The client is not entitled to any compensation in the event that he/she forfeits from embarking on the trek/expedition because of his/her personal injury. Additionally, if the government revokes the permit for the trek/expedition because of any disaster in the area, the clients may not seek reparation for their payment.
In the event that Nomadic Sherpa temporarily provides any materials, gears, or any equipment that may or may not be the property of the company, the client must return it to the company’s designated official at the end of the trip or expedition or trek. Should any damage occur to the aforementioned equipment, the client has to pay the amount fixed by the agency as per compensation.
Godiyals may require guests to provide photographs taken from their cameras free of charge for the sake of publicity. In those circumstances, we expect guests to comply with our request. The photographs will be used for promotional purpose only.
