Booking & Cancellations

Bookings

    • To confirm your booking and secure your Mountain Trek we require a 20% deposit. 
    • We accept payment via Bank Transfer. Cash can be paid by arrangement in certain circumstances.
    • The balance of the trek must be paid 28 days before the date of your Mountain Trek.
    • Any bookings made within 28 days of the start of the trek must be paid in full at time of booking.
    • Treks with a value of £60 per person or less need to be paid in full at the time of booking.
    • Medical fitness forms are to be completed by all participants.

Travel Insurance

We highly recommend that all trekkers take out their own insurance to cover the following:

    • The cost of cancellation by you (including the full cost of your trek and any transport or accommodation you may have booked).
    • The cost of assistance (including repatriation) in the event of accident or illness.
    • Loss of personal items and money.

Cancellations

    • Cancellations must be made in writing. This includes email. 
    • All deposits are non refundable except if Trek Scotland has to cancel your trek. In this case all of your deposit will be refunded. 
    • If you cancel more than 28 days before your trek takes place, your payment will be refunded minus your 20% booking deposit. Please be aware that if you cancel within the 28 days before the trek NO refunds are available. However, if you find someone to fill your place we will return your payment. 
    • In the event of Trek Scotland having to cancel a Mountain Trek, we will offer three options as part of our Peace of Mind Guarantee: You can choose to be reimbursed in full, including your deposit; You can choose to postpone to a similar Trek but on a different date; You can choose to be reimbursed in Vouchers to use against any of our future Treks subject to availability.
    • COVID-19 Peace of Mind Guarantee: During these unprecedented times we are offering an additional COVID-19 Peace of Mind Guarantee for any new bookings taken made from June 2020 onwards. This means that if you have to cancel a Trek with us because of a COVID-19 related incidence, such as having to self isolate, we will give you a full refund. We would need some evidence of this. This does not cover you for other reasons for cancellation and we advise you to take out your own insurance to cover these. 
    • For our fixed-date group treks we may cancel if fewer than 4 people book on. In this particular instance, you will get a full refund or a complementary 10% off if you decide to transfer your monies to any future Treks with us.
    • Trek Scotland reserves the right to curtail a Trek in the case of antisocial, criminal, dangerous, unsafe or irresponsible behaviour by one or more clients. Where clients are not known to each other, the unruly client[s] will be asked to leave the Trek. If this involves being escorted back to safety by an additional guide they will be billed for this at full guiding rate.
