FAQs

What are my responsibilities while traveling?

Practicing outdoor sports brings risks. Adventoured and outdoor guides do not accept any responsibility deriving from your wrong behaviors during the participation of our group travels. You are the ultimate responsible for your action.

Do I have any insurance coverage for accidents that can happen during group travel?

Of course! The cost of the trip also includes insurance that adequately covers costs that may arise from the unpleasant event of an accident during outdoor activities. In this page you can find the insurance terms and condition.

Customer Insurance

If I book a trip, do I have the possibility to cancel?

Of course! the reimbursement possibilities are as follows:

  • If you cancel 45 days before the departure of the trip, you are entitled to a refund of 100% of the trip;
  • If you cancel between 45 and 30 days before the departure of the trip, you are entitled to a refund of 70% of the trip;
  • If you cancel within 30 days before the departure of the trip, you are not entitled to a refund

What is the difference between planned and confirmed trip?

The planned trip is the one available for sale on the platform while the confirmed trip is the one that has reached the minimum number of participants and will start. It is important that you organize the logistics only when the trip has been confirmed by the Adventoured team.


How long can the trip be confirmed?

The goal of the Adventoured team is to find all travel companions for your outdoor trips, but we have given ourselves the terms within which our trips can become confirmed or not:

  • 20 days before the start of the travel in the case of trips lasting more than 6 days;
  • 7 days before the start of the travel in the case of trips lasting between 3 and 6 days; 
  • 48 hours before the start of the travel in the case of trips lasting less than 3 days

What happens if I have booked a trip but it has not been confirmed by Adventoured?

Unfortunately we were unable to find the minimum number of people to start the trip you booked. At this point you have two solutions: 

  • Request a refund of 100% of the amount paid for the trip booked;
  • Pay the difference to cover the fixed costs of the trip and start the trip anyway. Please note that in this case you could face an increase between 50% and 100% of the initial cost of the trip. To activate this opportunity we will need your response within 24 hours
