Booking a trek with Walking With Nomads (Always Morocco Ltd), you will be accepting these conditions on behalf of yourself and all other persons using our services pursuant to a booking made by you.
Once you agree all aspects of the proposal, Walking With Nomads (Always Morocco Ltd) will raise an invoice with payment details. Your booking will be confirmed when we receive a deposit of 50% of the total invoice.
Invoice balance (less deposit) is due one calendar month before your trek date and can be paid by bank transfer or any major credit or debit card via the PayPal system (all transaction charges to be paid by the payer) or can be paid by cash on arrival by special arrangement.
Should the balance of the trek not be received by the due date we reserve the right to cancel, after due notice, and you forfeit your initial deposit.
We will make all possible amendments to your booking with no additional charges. However, should you request amendments within 14 days of the start of your trek it might not be feasible. In this case, we will try to accommodate you but can’t guarantee this and we will either inform you that it is not possible or reserve the right to charge you an additional fee.
If it is not possible to make changes to your booking, for whatever reason, you have the choice of proceeding with your holiday as originally booked or cancelling and paying the cancellation charges as mentioned below.
Once you have paid your deposit the price will be locked in. Any reduced pricing or discounts that may become available after you have paid your deposit will not apply. Prices are based on currency exchange rates set at 30th January 2019 and we reserve the right to impose surcharges up to 45 days before departure due to unfavourable changes in exchange rates, increases in local operator costs, taxes, or if government action should require us to do so. In such instances, we will be responsible for the increased amount up to 2% of the original trip price and you will be responsible for the balance.
If any surcharge results in an increase of more than 10% of the trip price you may cancel the booking within 14 days of notification of the surcharge and obtain a full refund. In view of the current volatility of world oil prices and UK exchange rates, you should ensure that you fully understand this clause.
Please notify us, in writing, as soon as possible if you need to cancel your travel arrangements. The cancellation charge depends on the number of days between receiving your written cancellation and the start date of your trip:
If you cancel within 30 days or more – only the deposit is payable.
If you cancel less than 30 days ahead – No refund is payable (payment in full required)

No compensation will be paid if such requests are not fulfilled.
