SPECIAL Covid-19 Flexible Booking & Money Back Guarantee

For all tours taking place in 2022 and 2023*:

The following terms are replacing partly our regular booking and cancellation terms.

1. Flexible Booking:

If you change your mind after booking for whatever reason 6 months prior to the start of your tour, just let us know and you get your deposit back. If you cancel for a reason that is insured by your travel cancellation insurance (such as unemployment or illness) we would ask if you would first make a claim through your insurance provider. This helps us a lot, but if that is not possible we will refund your deposit in full. Alternatively, you can transfer your tour deposit to any other tour from our program free of charge.

2. Money Back Guarantee:

If we need to cancel a tour, due to Covid-19 or any other reason, you get your money back in full. Alternatively, you can transfer your booking to any other tour from our program free of charge. If you choose the same tour in the following year, we guarantee the original tour price (even if we have to increase the tour price for the next year).

*with the exception of 1. Flexible booking for the Overland Tour from Munich to Lhasa

Terms and Conditions

for Motorcycle Use and Tour Participation

Documents:

Documents must include a valid two-wheeler license, a valid international driving license and adequate insurance coverage for the duration of the tour. You must carry all necessary documents – including your passport and the original motorcycle registration papers – on your person at all times.

Traffic and Riding:

Riders are responsible for riding safely, the careful handling of the vehicle for their own safety, as well as that of other road users and bystanders. The undersigned is aware of Indian traffic regulations, as well as how to deal with actual Indian traffic conditions and the technical limitations of the Enfield Bullet.

Insurance:

It is hereby understood that all motorcycles have been provided by our company free of charge as an integral part of the travel package that we have organized and that the participants have booked with us. No rental agreement involving motorcycles is a part of the tour package and no payment to that effect has been made. It is absolutely essential for all tour participants to understand this and to state this in case of inquiries by local officials or police. The reason for this arrangement is to maintain insurance cover on the bikes, since no insurance company in India will currently cover commercial motorcycle rentals.
The comprehensive motorcycle insurance for the Enfield Bullet limits the rider’s personal indemnity to 500 euros for each claim. Out-of-court settlements are highly recommended for third-party claims, as court and police procedures are notoriously slow and ineffective and normally share out the blame to the involved parties without regard for the actual facts. An out-of-court settlement saves time, bribes, and possible tour extension costs. Out-of-court settlements automatically exclude any compensation on the part of the insurance company. The final arbiter in any such situation is the tour guide. All costs related to injury and hospitalization, and any expenses subsequently arising, such as tour extension, hotel bookings, motorcycle transport costs, are to be borne by the participant and his / her personal travel insurance.

  • Shineray X5 400: EUR/US$ 500
  • BMW G 310 GS: EUR/US$ 1.000
  • BMW F 800 GS: EUR/US$ 1.500

Damages which are caused by participants are limited to the deposited amount. In case of damages caused by gross negligence or malicious action of the participant, we reserve the right to claim higher amounts up to the current replacement cost of the vehicle according to Chinese law. This also includes damages caused by non-compliance/infringement of Chinese laws such as the speed limit or drunk driving. The driver is expected to make a deposit as outlines above in cash to the tour guide for the motorcycle. This amount will be reimbursed at the conclusion of the tour. This down payment can be used for any emergency which may arise during the tour.

Deposit:

The rider is required to make a deposit of 500 euros (or the equivalent in US dollars) in cash to the tour guide for the motorcycle. If all goes well, the deposit will be returned at the conclusion of the tour. This deposit can be used for any emergency which may arise during the tour. The amount also corresponds to the personal indemnity ceiling of the Enfield Bullet insurance policy, as well as the ceiling the operator sets for damages to the vehicle in an out-of-court settlement.

Theft:

The motorcycles themselves are insured against theft, but not the participants’ personal belongings. Participants are responsible for the safety of their own luggage.
