PRESPONSIBILITY OF TRIP PARTICIPANTS
Trip participants have a certain responsibility to the Taiga and to any other members of a trip, if there are any. Participants are responsible for understanding the requirements of the trip and for selecting a trip with the assistance of any of our overseas agents or the Taiga consultant appropriate to their interest and ability. Participants with medical problems or special dietary needs are responsible for informing the Taiga of these issues well in advance. For the protection of all participants, the trip leader reserves the right to prevent anyone from a trip who displays insufficient ability, or whose behavior endangers the safety of other participants. No refund will be made to a participant who is rejected for any such reason, or who is unwilling or unable to complete a tour. Participants are responsible for arranging travel to and from the trip’s meeting point, for carrying valid travel documents, and for obtaining immunizations appropriate to the destination. The Taiga is a Mongolian fully licensed tour operator and our trips, with few exceptions, have a meeting point in Mongolia where the Taiga services start. Participants are required to have adequate health and accident insurance, which is current and includes, if applicable, international coverage for riding and other sporting activities. In addition, participants wishing to horse ride a more than just slow and casually should inform the Taiga and purchase a local coverage for emergency medical evacuation, which can be added to your bill for only USD 45 per person for one-month coverage in Mongolia. Participants are responsible for understanding what is and is not included in the price as outlined in the detailed trip information. Anyone who does not want pictures of themselves to be used in promotional materials should notify the Taiga accordingly.
