T&C’s FOR NZ – AOTEAROA JOURNEY
Information on our deposit and payment system is listed below.
And first, some context….
The nature of Global Pilgrim tours is that of deeply meaningful, life-enhancing experiences, as we immerse with our global community. Our tours create a vortex of transformation that begins as soon as you fully commit. Magic starts to happen! As well as this, from a practical perspective, we have picked our guides, ancient sights & hotels with ‘the best’ in mind – some of these resources book out months in advance, hence we secure our spot with plenty of time, to ensure we are able, for example, to get good seats on the TranzAlpine journey.
For these reasons – in greatest support of you receiving the fullness of the whole experience and process – we require commitment (by deposit) upfront.
Prices are quoted in NZD for our NZ tours, as our providers use this as their quoting standard.
The deposit to confirm your spot on tour is $500 NZD which is a non-refundable amount.
The deposit confirms your attendance on tour until 70 days prior to tour commencement, at which point the full balance is due. If full payment is not received by this time, and you have not been in contact with Global Pilgrim, we will regard your place on tour as cancelled.
Payment plans can be organised by entering into discussion with Global Pilgrim.
Enrolment to the tour will be accepted in the 70 days prior to trip commencement at which time total payment is due. If a payment plan is needed, please enter into discussion with Global Pilgrim.
Methods of payment are by bank transfer into Global Pilgrim’s Business Account, or through PayPal. Please be in contact by email or phone, or by completing the online form under the BOOK tab, on how to progress your deposit and payment.
CANCELLATIONS & REFUNDS
All payments are non-refundable within 70 days of tour departure date.
Between 70 days & 90 days of tour departure date: 40% refund minus bank transfer fees.
90 days thereafter: Full refund minus bank transfer fees.
The price stated in this website is based on minimum numbers of 10 Global Pilgrims. If these numbers are not reached the cost will rise, as the providers in NZ require extra money to cover their own expenses for travelling with a smaller group. The approximate extra cost is around 10% of the cost of the tour i.e. $500 NZD per traveller; this will be confirmed by email 2 weeks prior to tour commencement and payment will be required upon notification.
Global Pilgrim reserves the right to change the date of the tour or cancel the tour if minimum numbers are not reached / for unforeseen circumstances arising. If cancellation occurs a full refund will be provided / monies can be transferred to another tour.
Prices stated on the website include twin-room occupancy. If you would like to be upgraded to a private room please contact us as soon as possible so we can provide you the exact extra charge. The approximate price is $1150 NZD.
CHANGES TO ITINERARY
Global Pilgrim reserves the right to cancel or make changes to the itinerary for the comfort and safety of all passengers, or for unforeseen circumstances arising.
Global Pilgrim shall not be held liable for any damage, loss, death, delay, accident or injury sustained by person or property for the trip. The purchase of your own Travel Insurance is compulsory to be a part of the trip.
Each traveller is responsible for their level of fitness and health to be such that they can take part in all hiking and all activities. If circumstances arise in which a traveller needs extra resources to accommodate their health needs whilst on tour, these expenses will be borne by the traveller.
Your deposit is received as an agreement to these Terms and Conditions.
