Changes or Cancellation by Tinna Nature Adventure

Before you enter into a contract with us, we reserve the right to change any of the facilities or services described in our brochure or website.

Tinna Adventure also reserves the right to cancel the tour. For example: Due to weather, and/or road conditions or if the minimum number of clients required for a tour is not fulfilled. It is unlikely we will have to make any changes to your tour however we do plan the arrangements months in advance. Any changes are usually very minor, and we will advise you at the earliest possible date. If a major change becomes necessary, we will inform you as soon as reasonably possible if there is time before your tour begins.

When a major change or cancellation occurs, you will have the choice of accepting the change of arrangements, purchasing another available tour from us, or canceling your tour. We will refund all payments made directly to us in respect of the tour price. We will not, however, be in a position to refund any personal expenses you may have incurred as a result of your booking such as flight payments for land-only tours, travel insurance, equipment purchases, visas, vaccinations, etc.
