The client should be healthy and must not suffer from an infectious disease. At the beginning of and during of a group tour the guide of the group reserves the right to exclude any participant completely or partially who evidently does not comply with the requirements or disturbs the trip effectively and does not react duly to the dissuasion of the guide. In this case no claim exists for refund of the paid tour price.
Participation is open to everyone who meets the specific requirements, mentioned in the description of the journey and brings the adequate equipment (helmet, clothes, bicycle) with him or rents it after reservation. Your own bicycle has to be in an optimal technical condition. The client is responsible for maintenance, failure and repair of his own bicycle, brought with him. The wearing of a helmet is obligatory for all tours. Basically, every participant cycles at his own risk and is aware of the dangers that can arise when using a bicycle. He is alone responsible for meeting the physical requirements of the cycling journey booked.
Nevertheless, it is possible to travel with the accompanying van, if there is overstraining or sickness and the client has booked a group tour. Although the routes mainly follow fully developed bikeways, the participant should be sufficiently informed of the Thai road traffic regulations. The participation of minors is only possible in the company of an adult and with the signature of a legal guardian.

This is also valid if journeys cannot be commenced or have to be canceled due to external circumstances (extreme weather, returning because of an injured participant or the tour guide, etc.). Additional costs for a potential return journey are at your expense. Of course, we will refund the price paid for the tour less a service charge. Exceptions to this policy cannot be made for any reason, including weather or personal emergencies.

In booking a tour with Chilli Cycling you, the client, are agreeing to these terms and you accept this limit on our liability.
11. CHANGE OF RESERVATION
There is no legal right to make changes with respect to the date of the journey and the destination after concluding the contract. If changes of reservation are possible and Chilli Cycling agrees to them, a single service charge of THB 1,500 per person is due. You can transfer your booking to another person up to 14 days before departure. You have to alert us to this change in writing. The substitute person has to fulfill the terms and further prerequisites connected with the participation of the journey, whereas both (substitute person and forwarding person) are liable jointly and severally to pay for the balanced price and arisen additional costs. Such additional costs can be, for example, no more possible double room occupancy.
12. TRAVEL DOCUMENTS
You must be in possession of a valid passport and all the visas and permits required for your tour. This includes any medical certificates that are required. The client accepts full responsibility for obtaining any and all such documentation. Every client is encouraged to contact the consulate or embassy for the countries they are traveling in respectively to receive the latest and most current information about their immigration and transit policies. Chilli Cycling does not accept responsibility if your documentation is not in order. Information provided by the company about these matters and other related items (clothing, baggage, climate, etc.) is given in good faith but without responsibility on the part of the company.
13. TRAVEL INSURANCE
Insurance is mandatory for all clients whilst on a tour organized by Chilli Cycling. Clients are wholly responsible for arranging their own insurance and that they are in possession of private travel insurance with protection for the full duration of the tour.
This insurance must include adequate coverage for any personal accident, medical expenses, injury, death, and repatriation. Insurance should also provide coverage for cancellations or curtailment of the holiday. Clients should also ensure that there are no exclusion clauses limiting protection for any dangerous or unusual activities that might be included in their tour. If you join the tour without adequate insurance you may be disallowed from continuing on the tour without the right of refund. Your tour leader will ask for copies of your insurance before allowing you to join the tour. We also strongly advise that clients have full personal travel insurance that covers the refund of monies paid in case either party cancels the tour for any reason.
14. FLIGHT OR DELAYS
We will not accept any liability for any delay in your flights, whether the cancellation or delay is caused by the weather, airline rescheduling, industrial action, or mechanical failure. We will give no refunds or compensation for lost time and services from the itinerary.
Should one of our tours have a deficiency despite all efforts, you should make your complaint to the tour guide or to Chilli Cycling immediately. You are obliged to contribute to avoiding potential damage or to limit it if there are any deficiencies. Failure to do so will result in limiting a client’s ability to claim compensation. We reserve the right to remedy such problems by providing a similar or more valuable substitute. Claims because of non-fulfillment or not contractual fulfillment have to be asserted within one month after the conclusion of the journey.
The traveler takes part in the trip at his own risk. Chilli Cycling is not liable for personal injury or property damage as a result of (but not limited to): physical exertion for which a guest is not prepared, forces of nature, travel by plane, train, car, boat, or other means of transport, or by bike, horse, foot or any other form of active or adventure travel, consumption of alcoholic beverages, civil unrest, terrorism, equipment failure, high altitude, lack of or limited access to medical care in remote locations and the adequacy of medical care once provided.
Chilli Cycling is also not liable for: Expenses (meals, transport, or hotel costs) that are not included in the tour price but may be necessary to get to or from a travel start or endpoint. Any liability for damage to luggage is excluded if this damage was unavoidable during carrying or lifting due to the age or condition of the piece of luggage. Should a piece of luggage be lost or damaged we are liable only, if the loss was caused by one of our employees deliberately or through gross negligence and if this loss was reported immediately after notifying us. For losses not covered by this clause, we recommend baggage insurance. This limitation of liability is also valid for carriage by external operators.

Chilli Cycling reserves the right to amend typos and misprints in pricing and other trip information. We reserve the right to decline to accept or to retain any person as a member of a tour or to require a participant to withdraw from the journey at their expense when such an action is determined by staff to be in the best interest of the participant’s health and safety, and that of the group in general. No refund will be made for the unused portion of any tour. Chilli Cycling does not accept liability incurred by the purchase of a non-refundable airline ticket.
