  • cancel the booking at no additional cost, with full refund of any paid deposit.

Variations to the program scheduled

The Guide who is responsible for the activity can modify or cancel the scheduled program, for justifiable reasons. Such decisions are entirely subject to the discretion of the Guide, for various reasons ( bad weather conditions, bad conditions of the mountain, level of fitness of the members of the group, safety reasons, etc…). The Guide may suggest in this case some alternative solutions. He will inform the participants of any additional costs. The participants are free to accept or refuse these suggestions. If there is a difference between the agreed services and those provided, the organizer will refund the participant within the limits of the difference between the two prices.

Insurance

Participants undertaking the activities described on this website will be covered by the Guide’s own third-party liability insurance. This insurance covers the participants against any injury or damage that can be attributed to negligence from part of the guide. The fees for research and /or rescue will be covered. Yet, it is highly recommended that the participants purchase their own personal insurance ( especially for air transportation and medical expenses).

Rental equipment

In case of damage of the rented equipment, not due to normal use but to negligence or misuse, the participant will be responsible for repair or replacement. An unintentional activation of our ABS backpacks will be charged to the participant. The Società Guide del Cervino accepts no responsibility for accidents caused by the use of our rental equipment.

Image rights

Pictures taken by The Società Guide del Cervino during the activities can be used for promotional purposes. If the participants do not wish to appear on the pictures or videos, they must say it in advance to the Guides’Office or the Guide himself before the beginning of the activity.
