TERMS OF AGREEMENTS
RESERVATIONS, DEPOSITS AND FINAL PAYMENT
A deposit of 30% of the trip cost is required at a per person basis at the time of booking, and or a deposit of 30% of the trip cost for all Privates groups. The initial deposit confirms your acceptance of HHSG’s terms and conditions. This deposit constitutes a tentative reservation, which becomes confirmed only upon receipt of full payment, which is due 10 weeks prior to departure. To reserve your Heliski trip, contact us at: info(Replace this parenthesis with the @ sign)heliskigreece.com
Full payment is due 10 weeks prior to the first day of your scheduled heliski trip. Payments can be made via Bank Wire transfers, cashier checks and Traveler Checks, personal checks are not accepted. All payments are to be made in Euro. Please identify all payments clearly with your name, address, date of trip and if applicable groups name. A reservation may be cancelled if we have not received full payment by the due date. Last minute clients making a reservation in 10 weeks or less prior to the scheduled trip must pay in full upon making reservation. If needed extra time can be arranged for full payment.
If it becomes necessary for you to cancel your reservation, we require notice in writing. If we receive cancellation notice more than six months prior to the skiing date, all the money on deposit will be refunded less 1000.00 Euro per person. If we receive cancellation notice less than six months prior to the heliski trip, the entire deposit is non-refundable. When we receive cancellation notice less than 10 weeks prior to the skiing date all money on account is non-refundable. Monies on deposit will not be carried forward to future seasons. Obviously this cancellation policy does not apply for last minute clients. Last minute clients are required to pay in full at the time of making the reservation.
Our heliski trips begin and end on specific days. No refund is given, in whole or in part, for un-used days or transportation, resulting from late arrival, early departure or for any other reason. Likewise, there are no refunds given for ‘Down Days’ if bad weather or helicopter breakdown prevents us from skiing on any given day. HSG guarantees eight runs per day; the runs vary from 700 to 1,200 vertical meters with the run and conditions dictating the vertical of each individual run. HSG will refund 40.00 Euro per un-skied run. No refund on runs will be given if you decide not to ski one day (or days), sit out a run, or come back earlier, regardless of the reason. You may transfer to another trip without penalty up to 90 days before departure. If you transfer from one trip to another within 89 days of departure, however, you are subject to the usual Cancellation Fees. HSG highly recommends you purchase travel insurance that covers trip cancellation, evacuation and medical. The flying time hours given for the trip are more then enough to make the guaranteed runs in the designated heliski areas. HSG does not charge for extra runs, only extra flying time. If the group decides to take advantage of an exceptional day or days and ski more runs then the daily quota, its possible, although this normally means it will use up the flying time hours allotted for our guaranteed heliski trip, should this issue come up, extra hours may be needed to compete the week. Also, should the group want to go into areas outside the designated area and due to this it exceeds the flying time given for the week, the guarantee on runs and hours for the week will be non valid. All extra hours must be paid in cash before extra flying time is allowed, extra flying time is 2,500 € per hour. Any trip discounts given will be deducted from the guaranteed runs should the situation arise.
TERMS & CONDITIONS
HSG reserves the right to cancel the heliski trip at any time. All rates are quoted in EURO and are subject to change without notice. The reservation and cancellation policies used by HSG are standard in this industry. The nature of our business is such that our commitments must be made well in advance of your skiing with us.
Heliski Greece (HSG) highly recommends that you buy cancellation insurance for your Heliski trip and your flight ticket! This insurance should cover your trip if you become ill or injured before and during the trip, and other valid reasons for not being able to come on the trip. The insurance should also cover your trip in case HSG has to cancel due to circumstances beyond our control, such as no snow, severe avalanche conditions, bad weather, helicopter problems, strikes, etc. The initial 30% deposit is non refundable so at the very least, you should insure this initial deposit and your flight ticket, especially if it’s a non-refundable ticket. It is suggested you get 100% coverage in case the cancellation is on your behalf, as the entire deposit for the trip is non-refundable 10 weeks prior to departure. You can either get this insurance from your travel agent, personal insurance broker, or through the following Travel Insurance groups: Mondial Assistance and Elvia Secure Trip Plus LifelinePlus Inc.
HSG does not carry health, life or injury insurance for our skiers. It is required that you carry your own personal health & injury insurance and you provide proof of this before starting the trip. HSG requires you carry insurance for life and health care risks. Be sure that it covers you for your heliski trip in Nepal.
Emergency Evacuation Insurance:
In the case of injury to skiers, helicopter ambulance expenses will be charged to the injured party. We recommend that everyone carry evacuation insurance.
Personal Property Insurance:
We also recommend that your personal belongings be also insured against loss. Your homeowner’s insurance may not be enough. Make sure this insurance covers you while you are in Greece.
