Failure to provide requested details may result in additional charges or non-refundable cancellation of your trip.
Trip prices range depending on the trip you have booked. These prices represent the most current prices per person and are subject to minimum numbers of each trip. Women Want Adventure tries its best not to increase trip prices, however, due to bookings of accommodation, prices may need to change with logistics, time of year of trip and other planning matters.

Authority On Your Trip
Our group trips are run by a group leader. The decision of the group leader is final on all matters likely to affect the safety or well-being of any traveller or staff member participating in the trip. If you fail to comply with a decision made by a group leader, or interfere with the well-being or mobility of the group, the group leader may direct you to leave the trip immediately, with no right of refund. We may also elect not to carry you on any future trips booked. You must at all times comply with the laws, customs, and drug and alcohol regulations on the trip.
Acceptance Of Risk
You acknowledge that the nature of the trip is adventurous and participation involves a degree of personal risk. You will be visiting places where the political, cultural and geographical attributes present dangers and physical challenges greater than those present in our daily lives. We use information from government foreign departments and reports from our own contacts in assessing whether the itinerary should operate.

Ideally you will have done this when you sent your booking form to us or when you made final payment for the trip. Failure to sign or properly complete the Women Want Adventure Waiver may result in you being unable to start the trip with the cancellation consequences outlined above.
If there is a change in any of the information you have supplied when you made a booking, including on the Women Want Adventure Waiver, you must notify us immediately.
Depending on the activities in your chosen trip, you may also be required to sign a waiver by one of our third party service providers. Failure to sign or properly complete such a waiver may result in you being unable to start the trip or take part in that day’s activities. We will not be liable for any expenses you have incurred.
Claims Or Complaints
If you have a complaint about your trip please inform your group leader or our local representative at the time in order that they can attempt to rectify the matter. If satisfaction is not reached through these means then any further complaint should be put in writing to us within 30 days of the end of the tour.
You agree to defend, indemnify, and hold Women Want Adventure, its leaders, directors, employees and agents, harmless from and against any claims, liabilities, damages, losses, and expenses, including, without limitation, reasonable legal and accounting fees, arising out of or in any way connected with your access to or use of the trip and Services or your breach of the Agreement.
