See our full Terms & Conditions and Booking Form.
It is your responsibility to ensure that you are fully and adequately insured for the duration of your holiday. Take time to confirm that all activities, excursions and destinations are included. Be particularly careful of any altitude exclusions. Ideally your cover would include, but not be limited to adequate: medical, legal, cancellation, delay and personal possession cover. If you would like to obtain cover for your trip please feel free to contact specialist Insurance Brokers, Campbell Irvine for a quote or read more about Travel Insurance.
Four to six weeks prior to departure we will send you a travel booklet, which provides general information, what to wear and take, a recommended reading list and visa forms, if appropriate. Your tickets and reporting instructions will be sent approximately 1-2 weeks before departure.
Passport And Visa
Please ensure that you hold a full passport and that any visa documentation required has been obtained. The Traveller will notify you of visa requirements. All travellers must hold a full passport VALID FOR AT LEAST SIX MONTHS for most overseas countries we visit. Some countries require British passport holders to have a visa. We have indicated the cost of a visa (at the date of publication) on each tour where applicable. Other nationals should contact their local consulate. Six to eight weeks prior to departure we will send the visa form(s) as applicable to your tour and details of up-to-date information regarding cost and length of application. If you would prefer to have us obtain the visa on your behalf, we can arrange this for UK-based customers for a handling charge of £35 or £45 per person (depending on destination), in addition to the cost of the visa itself. We are normally unable to obtain visas for those resident overseas. For us to be able to carry out this service, we usually need to be in possession of your passport and the relevant visa authorisation forms at 5-6 weeks before the date of travel for a period of no less than two weeks, although this varies. If you are unable to comply with our precise instructions, we regret that we will not be able to assist with visa appropriation and you will need to organise this yourself. We cannot be held responsible if you are unable to obtain a visa for any reason.
Cheques should be made payable to ‘Steppes Traveller' drawn on a British bank account. Passengers may pay by credit card (VISA or MasterCard), bank transfer or International Money Order made out in £ Sterling. Payment in any other currency will be subject to bank charges. We are unable to accept payment by credit card without an additional fee to cover the credit card company's charges (normally 2.5%).
