The information contained on our website is given for information only. We reserve the right to modify the program at any time if safety or bad weather so requires.

Risks and physical abilities

Given the nature of our trips, each participant is aware of the risks they may run, particularly due to the distance from medical centers, and in particular to the altitude. Indeed, some of our tailor-made trips established according to the client's request provide for a rapid rise in altitude and we cannot be held responsible for the risks associated with it. Each participant therefore assumes these risks with full knowledge of the facts and undertakes not to hold the responsibility for accidents that may occur on Nomad's Asia and on the guides or on the various service providers. If the circumstances so require, in particular to ensure the safety of the entire group, for climatic reasons or unforeseen events, Nomad's Asia reserves the right directly or through its companions to substitute a means of transport. , accommodation, an itinerary to another, as well as dates and times of departure, without the participants being able to claim any compensation.

The client / participant undertakes to respect the instructions of the guide. Any additional fees or costs that may result will be borne by the customer.

Luggage

Luggage remains the responsibility of customers at all times. Do not entrust your companion to supervise them. He cannot materially perform this task. The maximum authorized baggage weight varies depending on the company. Inquire directly with them. The airline is solely responsible for the luggage that you entrust to it during transport. In the event of loss, delay or damage to your luggage, it is your sole responsibility to take the necessary steps. Your luggage is often transported by rudimentary means (mule or camel back, 4x4 gallery). In the event of damage, Nomad's Asia will not be able to study any claim on this subject.

Air Transport

The contract between air carriers and their customers is governed by the International Convention of Montreal and is reproduced on airline tickets (except charters). Here is an excerpt from his art. 9: "The carrier undertakes to do its best to transport the passenger and baggage with due diligence. The times indicated on the timetables are not guaranteed and do not form part of this contract. The carrier may, without notice, substitute for other carriers, use other planes. He can modify or delete the stopovers provided for on the ticket if necessary. Times are subject to change without notice. The carrier assumes no responsibility for connections ". We too can only submit to this international convention. If flight times are changed by the company, we cannot be held responsible. Ditto in the event of a change of departure or arrival airport. The resulting costs will remain your responsibility. Nomad's Asia does not pay any compensation for this. Our prices are calculated according to the prices communicated by the companies. These, to optimize their price offer, use so-called "Yield management" techniques. These methods have led to the creation of "reservation classes" which involve a certain quota of reserved seats for each fare category of the same flight. This entails for the traveler, prices changing up or down depending on periods of high demand or lower demand. Thus, it may happen that a flight is not accessible at the lowest price when it is not full. Likewise, it may happen that when you register, there is no room left in the fare class corresponding to the fare in our brochure. In this case, we would have to offer you a price different from that offered in the program. It is therefore important and advantageous for you to book your trip as early as possible, in order to be assured of the availability of seats and to be able to benefit from the best airfares. Please note that for all our trips, the tickets we provide are non-modifiable and non-refundable. Changes without notice may occur in the event of deletion of lines, modification of schedules, price readjustments. They can in no case be considered as contractual.

Insurance

Nomad's Asia cannot replace individual civil liability and repatriation insurance which each participant must hold. Each participant must take a copy of the contract (your personal insurance contact details) with them, as you are responsible for reporting claims to insurance (our guides and local officials will assist you in this process). Additional costs relating to repatriation will be borne by the customer.

Taxes

Air taxes for tickets we buy for you are included in the offer. The costs of additional personal baggage will be paid by the customer himself. New mandatory airport taxes may come into effect. We will communicate these new taxes to you upon reservation within the limits of our information. They will be due in all cases.

Duration

The 1st day of the trip is the day of your arrival in Central Asia, even if it is late at night, and the last day of the trip is the day of the flight back home, even if it is early on morning. These days are counted in the duration of the trip. We do not assume any additional costs caused by early morning or late departure or return schedules. The prices are flat-rate and cannot give rise to any refund or credit in the event of an early or late departure or arrival time.

After sales - complaints

Food remarks must be made before departure or during the stay. Our guides are able to adapt the menus according to the wishes of the customers or during the program.
