Cancellation by EcoBike
EcoBike reserves the right to cancel any trip at any time for any reason determined in our sole discretion, including if there are too few participants, or if the quality of the trip or the safety of travelers is judged by EcoBike to be compromised. In such a case, refund of payments received by EcoBike shall constitute full and final settlement. In the event of cancellation, EcoBike is not responsible for any loss incurred on account of non-refundable or non-transferable air tickets or other unrecoverable travel costs.
Preparing for your trip
Our trips entail risks and rewards beyond those encountered at home. We count on our travelers to ensure they are healthy and fit; to read our pre-trip materials about clothing, training and medical requirements; and to appreciate that in Israel local living standards, practices, services and accommodations may slightly differ from those in North America or Europe.
Travel documents and passports
EcoBike is not liable for any expenses or costs arising from any traveler being prohibited from entering a country scheduled to be visited on a trip.
External travel services
EcoBike may recommend the services of external travel companies or other support services in response to requests made by travelers for services outside of the scope of a EcoBike trip. Although we endeavor to recommend only companies that provide the highest levels of service and work closely with them to try to obtain special treatment for EcoBike travelers, we do not guarantee the services provided by third parties. EcoBike is not liable for any injury, expenses or costs arising from any services, or lack thereof, provided by neither any third party nor the standards of care which travelers experience when using those services.
By sending a deposit toward your trip purchase and returning your Traveler Information Form (for multiday tours only), you certify that you do not have any physical condition or disability that would create a hazard for you or other travelers and that you have received all appropriate or necessary vaccinations indicated by your proposed trip. Please consult your doctor.
Before travelling on a trip, we strongly recommend you review your personal insurance and health insurance to ensure you have coverage appropriate to meet your needs, and the needs of your family and dependants, in case of any loss of property or illness, injury or death.
