To avoid confusion, we will not normally enter into discussions with any other member of the group.

2. Booking and Payment

We require an initial deposit of GBP 50 for the whole group to secure your booking- be it activity only booking or accommodation package. The initial deposit shall be payable within 24hrs of receiving our invoice by email.
We require 2 deposits in total, with the final deposit of min. 25% of the total invoice value being due by the latest 30 days before your departure. Deposit can be paid by Credit or Debit Card ( a 3% surcharge is applicable on all card transactions) or by bank transfer. The final deposit of either GBP 200 or minimum 25% of the total order value  should be in payable to our bank account or by credit /  debit card or Paypal 30 days before the event begins. Both credit / debit card payments and Paypal payment adds 3% surcharge to the transferred amount. In case of last minute bookings which are made below 7 days before the event begins we reserve the right to ask you for a 50% deposit of the total balance.

The outstanding balance shall be payable after your safe arrival in Krakow . You may either settle it in cash (in Pounds, Bank of England only, not Scottish or Irish) with our guide which is our preferred method of payment or by a credit/debit card in our office in Krakow but then you will incur a surcharge of 3% of the total payable amount and additional currency conversion surcharges which are caused by a difference between the Pound value in Polish Banks on your arrival date and the credit card exchange rates. Should you wish to complete payment in the local currency, you should contact us first in
order to get a binding quote in Polish Zlotys. We also recommend you to wait until you arrive to exchange any currency. We do not advise clients to exchange outside the different destinations, as the rate is poor and all calculations we make will be based on the current exchange rate in Krakow. The contract shall come into existence as soon as you receive our confirmation e-mail with invoice stating that we have received your deposit. The group organizer will be responsible for collecting the deposits from all the participants and transferring them to our account in one payment on the due date. When making a booking with us, you and the rest of your group agree to adhere to the following terms and conditions. It is your responsibility to make all the participants of the event aware of it.

3. Pricing Policy

A price specified in the invoice will be considered as the binding price provided the deposit is paid on time. Once it’s done you will receive our confirmation e-mail stating we have received your deposit and after this point the price becomes guaranteed and will not be a subject to any surcharge unless the number of the group size has changed or you wanted to change the inclusions of the booking. However in the extremely unlike situation where the Pound value would reach or excess 25% loss (which we can formally prove) compared to its average value set by The Polish National Bank from the day the initial deposit was paid into our bank account , we reserve the right to apply some increases. Even though we prepay our suppliers to secure the prices, such a drastic change of the Pound value couldn’t be compensated neither by us nor by our suppliers. In these circumstances you may cancel in writing the reservation in whole or in part within seven days of such notification and we will refund the cost attributable to that part of the reservation cancelled. In the absence of such cancellation you will be deemed to have accepted the increased charges.

4. Changes made by us

These are, however, extremely unlikely but we must assume a situation that may occur that is outside of our ability to change and where we are forced to alter important conditions of the agreement (e.g: due to our suppliers mistake). In such cases we will immediately inform you and you shall inform us in writing whether:

    • you accept the alterations or
    • you want to cancel the agreement in whole or in part, without any costs or cancellation fees
    • take part in a tour of the same or higher standard that we shall offer you unless you agree to accept the lower standard but with a return of the price difference.

5. Important Note
Compensation arrangements do not apply to circumstances beyond our control. We can change or cancel your event in the following circumstances: war, threat of war, riots, civil strife or terrorist activity, industrial disputes, natural or nuclear disasters, fire and similar events beyond our control.

6. Changes by you
All changes made by a group leader are free until paying a deposit. After we receive it, all alterations will be recalculated on the basis of current prices. When booking an accommodation package, you may also incur some surcharges if your group size decreases and you didn’t notify us in writing about it at least 35 days before the event takes place.

7. Our responsibility

We accept responsibility for all the acts of omissions or negligence of our employees, suppliers and agents except the situation where the omission or negligence was caused by your group member or any third parties not participating in a tour. F.T also limits its liability in case of death, injury or illness of any of the group participants to a maximum of the price of your itinerary arrangements. We accept no liability for any accident that occurs while any of your group is under the influence of drink or drugs, his behaviour is aggressive or threatening or he fails to adhere to health and safety requirements or the injury or death is not directly connected with participating in the events scheduled in the itinerary. We also commit ourselves to helping you or any of your group members in case of compensation claims against any third parties responsible for the damage. Please bear in mind that some activities you may want to undertake during the tour are classified by the insurance companies as being “high risk” and the price quoted on the web site does not include any insurance against sporting accidents whatsoever. We advise you to buy additional insurance in UK if you plan to participate in high risk sporting activities however it is not obligatory, as we guarantee that all our sports activity suppliers have civil insurance.
