By booking or participating in a tour and any related products or services (a “Tour”) with Origin Travels Inc. (“Origin Travels”), you (“you”) agree to these Terms & Conditions (the “Terms”). Your booking contract will be with Origin Travels Inc., a Canadian company incorporated in Ontario (“Origin Travels Inc.”) and a member of TICO (Member No. 50024160).
By booking a Tour you acknowledge that you have read, understand, and agree to be bound by these Terms. If you make a booking on behalf of other participants, you guarantee that you have the authority to accept and do accept these Terms on behalf of the other participants in your party.
1. THE BOOKING CONTRACT
Your booking is confirmed and a contract exists when the Origin Travels issues a written confirmation after receipt of the applicable deposit amount. Please check your confirmation carefully and report any incorrect or incomplete information to Origin Travels immediately. Please ensure that names are exactly as stated in the relevant passport.
You must be at least 21 years of age to make a booking on an Origin Travels retreat. You agree to provide full, complete, and accurate information to Origin Travels.
2. BOOKING ON BEHALF OF OTHERS
By booking on behalf of other participants, you are deemed to be the designated contact person for every participant included on that booking. This means that you are responsible for making all payments due in connection with your Tour booking, notifying Origin Travels or your travel agent if any changes or cancellations are required and keeping your party informed.
By booking on behalf of another person or persons, you represent and warrant that you have obtained all required consents. You are responsible for verifying that any information you provide on behalf of another participant is complete and accurate and the Origin Travels will under no circumstances be liable for any errors or omissions in the information provided to complete a booking.
3. REQUIRED MEDICAL INFORMATION
You must provide any medical information reasonably requested by Origin Travels.
Medical Forms are mandatory for certain Tours. If you have any pre-existing medical conditions which may impact the ability to travel, participate in a Tour, travel to remote areas without access to medical facilities, or may adversely affect the experience of others on your Tour, you must return a Medical Form, signed by a licensed and practicing physician to Origin Travels prior to or at the time of final payment for the applicable booking.
The Origin Travels reserves the right to request further information or professional medical opinions where necessary, as determined in its discretion, for your safety or the safe operation of a Tour.
The Origin Travels reserves the right to deny you permission to travel or participate in any aspect of a Tour at any time and at your own risk and expense where the Origin Travels determines that your physical or mental condition renders you unfit for travel or you represent a danger to yourself or others.
Pregnancy is considered a medical condition and must be disclosed to the Origin Travels at the time of booking. Origin Travels may refuse to carry pregnant women over 24 weeks. The Origin Travels may refuse to carry anyone with certain medical conditions if reasonable accommodation or alternatives cannot be arranged.
In the event that you do not complete the required Medical Form or provide medical information reasonably required by the Origin Travels for any reason by the deadline indicated above, the Origin Travels reserves the right to cancel your booking and all applicable cancellation fees will apply.
You are responsible for assessing whether a Tour is suitable for you. You should consult your physician to confirm your fitness for travel and participation in any planned activities. You should seek your physician’s advice on vaccinations and medical precautions. The Origin Travels does not provide medical advice. It is your responsibility to assess the risks and requirements of each aspect of the Tour based on your own unique circumstances, limitations, fitness level, and medical requirements.
Travel with the Origin Travels may involve visiting remote or developing regions, where medical care may not be easily accessible and medical facilities may not meet the standards of those found in your home country. The condition of medical facilities in the countries you may visit on your Tour varies and the Origin Travels makes no representations and gives no warranties in relation to the availability or standard of medical facilities in those regions.
4. SPECIAL REQUIREMENTS
Any special requirements must be disclosed to the Origin Travels at the time of booking. The Origin Travels will use reasonable efforts to accommodate special requirements or requests but this is not always possible given the nature of the destinations visited and availability of options outside a planned itinerary. Certain activities may be inaccessible to you if your mobility is limited in any way. All food allergies and dietary restrictions must be disclosed to the Origin Travels at the time of booking but Origin Travels cannot guarantee that dietary needs or restrictions can be accommodated. Any special requests or requirements do not form part of these Terms or the contract between you and Origin Travels is not liable for any failure to accommodate or fulfill such requests.
5. MANDATORY INSURANCE REQUIREMENTS
YOU MUST HAVE TRAVEL INSURANCE WITH A MINIMUM MEDICAL, EVACUATION, AND REPATRIATION COVERAGE OF US$200,000 covering all applicable dates of travel with the Origin Travels. This insurance must cover personal injury and emergency medical expenses. On the first day of each Tour, a representative of the Origin Travels will verify that you have sufficient insurance in place. You are strongly recommended to extend your coverage to include cancellation, curtailment, and all other expenses that may arise as a result of loss, damage, injury, delay, or inconvenience while traveling. You acknowledge that insurance coverage is not included in the cost of any Tour offered by the Origin Travels and you are required to obtain separate coverage at an additional cost. It is your responsibility to ensure that you have sufficient coverage and comply with the terms of the applicable insurance plans. You are responsible for advising your insurer of the type of travel, destination(s), and activities included in your booking so that the insurer may provide appropriate coverage.
6. PRICES, SURCHARGES AND TAXES
The published price of the Tour and any products or services offered by Origin Travels is subject to change at any time, before or after booking confirmation, up to 30 days before departure. Tours are priced and advertised exclusive of applicable sales taxes. After a confirmation invoice has been issued by Origin Travels (or Origin Travels Inc., as its agent), Origin Travels reserves the right to impose surcharges on any products or services booked for reasons arising from increases in transportation costs, fuel costs, dues, taxes, or fees chargeable for services such as landing taxes or embarkation or disembarkation fees at ports and airport charges, local operator costs, currency, and exchange fluctuations, increases in taxes, or government action which impacts the price of the applicable products or services; provided however, Origin Travels will only do so where the increase in question is greater than 2% of the original price paid for the products or services (excluding add-ons, insurance, and taxes). Upon learning of the necessity to impose a surcharge in accordance with this section Origin Travels will provide notice to you as soon as reasonably possible.
Where the increase in price is greater than 7% of the original price of the applicable products or services (excluding add-ons, insurance, and taxes), you may choose to either:
(a) cancel the applicable booking without incurring any penalty; or
(b) accept the change of price.
You must notify Origin Travels of your choice within 14 days of receipt of notice of the increase or you will be deemed to have accepted the price change and will be liable for payment of the increase.
From time-to-time Origin Travels (or a travel agent, as its agent) may offer reduced pricing on certain products or services. Reduced pricing applies only to new bookings. Bookings where payment of at least a deposit has been received by Origin Travels are not entitled to reduced pricing.
All dates, itineraries and prices of Tours are subject to change at any time and the current price will be quoted and confirmed at the time of booking, subject to any surcharges that may be levied in accordance these Terms.
You acknowledge that you are responsible for keeping up to date on the specific details of your Tour and any other products or services, including, but not limited to checking Origin Travels’s website at least 72 hours prior to departure as minor changes may have been made after the time of booking.
At the time of booking, a non-refundable deposit of CAD$500 (or equivalent as determined on the day of currency exchange), as applicable, per person per Tour is due to Origin Travels. If the booking is made 60 days or less prior to departure, full payment is due at the time of booking. The non-refundable deposit should be sent to Origin Travels or authorized agent, as applicable.
Certain products of services Origin Travels may require you to provide a higher deposit or make full payment at the time of booking. Origin Travels will advise you of any such requirements prior to confirmation of the applicable booking.
Deposits: If you cancel your booking, and that cancellation is not a result of nonpayment or any other breach of these Terms, the deposit amount will be held as a travel Origin Travels with Origin Travels, subject to these Terms. Origin Travels Deposits have no expiry and may be applied towards payment of a deposit on any other Tour offered by Origin Travels. The Origin Travels Deposit is transferable and may be transferred by you to another individual of your choosing by providing notice to Origin Travels in writing.
For the avoidance of doubt, only the deposit amount will form part of the Lifetime Deposit. The Origin Travels Deposit has no cash value. Only one Origin Travels Deposit may be applied per person per product booked. A Lifetime Deposit must be applied to a new Tour booking that is of equal or greater value to the cancelled Tour for which the Lifetime Deposit was originally received. A Lifetime Deposit may not be applied to the same or similar dates of travel.
9. DETAILS REQUIRED FOR BOOKING
As a condition of booking, you must provide the information requested by Origin Travels along with final payment. If you fail to provide all required information prior to the date on which full payment is due, an administrative fee will be charged for any costs incurred by Origin Travels as a result of your failure to provide the required information. If you fail to supply information required by Origin Travels for air tickets, permits, or other inclusions, you will also be liable for any costs, fees, or losses including failure to obtain or provide that inclusion. In the event that you fail to supply information required by Origin Travels, Origin Travels also reserves the right to treat your booking (or the relevant component of your booking) as cancelled and levy any cancellation fees deemed reasonable by Origin Travels, in its sole discretion. The information required by Origin Travels will vary by Tour and will be communicated to you or to Origin Travels’s authorized agent during the booking process.

A departure date for a Tour offered by Origin Travels will become a guaranteed departure when at least four bookings secured by a valid deposit that has been made on that departure.
Origin Travels guarantees that all scheduled Tour departures booked and secured with a valid deposit will depart as indicated on the applicable confirmation, subject to reasonably itinerary changes as described in these Terms or good faith health and safety concerns.

In the case of a cancellation, Origin Travels will give travellers notice of cancellation 45 days to departure date, and provide a 100% refund for all monies paid. For this reason it is extremely important for our travellers to purchase trip cancellation insurance to recoup payment for unused services due to trip cancellation.
If a Tour is cancelled by Origin Travels before the date of departure for reasons other than Force Majeure and the cancellation is not caused by your fault or negligence, you will have the choice of accepting from Origin Travels:
(a) a substitute Tour of equivalent or superior value; or
(b) a substitute Tour of lesser value if no Tour of equivalent or superior value is reasonably available and to recover from Origin Travels the difference in price between the price of the Tour originally purchased and the substitute Tour; or
(c) a full refund of all monies paid for the cancelled Tour.
Origin Travels is not responsible for any incidental expenses or consequential losses that you incur as a result of the cancelled booking including visas, vaccinations, non-refundable flights or rail, non refundable car parking or other fees, loss of earnings, or loss of enjoyment, Origin Travels reserves the right to issue a full refund in lieu of the choices above, in its sole discretion. Where a significant element of a Tour as described cannot be provided after departure, Origin Travels will make suitable alternative arrangements where possible. If it is not possible to provide a suitable alternative or if you reasonably reject any suitable alternatives, Origin Travels may provide you with a refund for unused products or services as determined in its discretion.
14. FORCE MAJEUR

If the client is unable to make the alternative trip, they will be offered the full value of the trip in the form of a travel voucher that can be applied to a future trip. Refunds will not be offered in the case of trip cancellation due to force majeur.
