The contract between the Trekker and the Guide is concluded when the Guide accepts the reservation request of the Trekker. By sending a booking request for a trek, the Trekker submits a firm offer to the Guide, to which the Trekker is bound for 72 hours.

If the Trekkers want to change or cancel their reservation, they must do so by contacting the guide directly via Babeltrek. Note that, unless otherwise specified in the posting, the cancellation gives right to a full refund if the request for cancellation or modification is made within 90 days before the start of the service.
