7. Changes of programme
In the interest of The Surf Tribe and our clients, we reserve the right to change the itinerary or specific services agreed upon if unforeseen events render it necessary.

8. Immigration and health regulations
Participants assume the responsibility for all necessary travel preparation (passport, visa, vaccination). Regulations may vary depending on nationality. For further details please refer to the competent consulate or embassy.

9. Compensation and liability
An experienced tour operator, The Surf Tribe  guarantees the following as far as the scope of your trip is concerned:
– Careful selection and scrutiny of other entities involved in your travel (providers of lodging, surf lessons, extra activities etc.)
– Truthful description in the online/offline communication
– Professional organisation of your trip.
The Surf Tribe compensates you for any loss generated by the failure, in part or in full, to provide a service agreed upon or for additional costs incurred by you, where The Surf Tribe guides or other local representative were not able to offer you an equivalent alternative on the spot and where actual fault on your part can be excluded. However, we do not assume any liability where programme changes are due to delayed flights or strikes. Likewise, we do not assume any liability whatsoever for changes of programme due to force majeure (e.g. weather conditions), authority regulations or third party delays. Complaints and claims must be asserted within one month after the conclusion of your journey booked with The Surf Tribe.

10. Risk
It lies in the responsibility of the participant to select a trip that is in full conformity with his/her state of health and physical abilities. The Surf Tribe would like to draw your attention to the elevated level of risk entailed in adventure trips, namely surfing and fun sport tours (accidents may lead to injuries, disabilities or even death). Since The Surf Tribe does not exert any control over your mastery of these sports, The Surf Tribe does not assume any liability. Participants bear the full responsibility for accidents, loss inflicted on themselves or third parties or fatal accidents.

11. VAT
VAT is included in all of the prices listed.
