The remaining amount must be paid in the periods or dates agreed upon at the time of the deposit, and always at least 30 days before the date of departure. If the total price of the trip is not paid under the aforementioned conditions, it will be understood that the consumer desists from the trip requested, subject to the conditions set forth in the following section. All reimbursements that are pertinent for any reason, will always be formalized through InspireU Adventures, not making any refund for services not used voluntarily by the consumer.

Withdrawal of the consumer. Cancellations of the trip.

At all times the user or consumer can withdraw from the services requested or contracted, having the right to the refund of the amounts that he / she has paid, whether it is the total price or the advance provided in the preceding section, but must compensate InspireU Adventures for the following concepts:

  1. 48.40 euros (VAT included) per person of management expenses, plus cancellation fees, if the latter had occurred.
  2. A penalty, consisting of 5% of the total trip if the cancellation occurs more than ten and less than fifteen days before the date of commencement of the trip; 15% between days three and ten, and 25% within 48 hours prior to departure.

If you do not show up at the scheduled time of departure, you will not be entitled to any refund of the amount paid, unless otherwise agreed by the parties.

The consumer of the trip may assign his reservation to a third person, requesting it in writing 15 days before the start date of the trip, unless the parties agree a shorter term in the contract. The transferee will have to meet the same requirements as the transferor, generally required for the trip, and both will be jointly and severally liable to InspireU Adventures for the payment of the price of the trip and the additional expenses justified for the assignment. In cases in which InspireU Adventures conditions, and so expressly specifies, the viability of the travel offer to have a minimum number of participants and that number is not reached, the cancellation of the trip may occur, and the user will be entitled to reimbursement of the total of the price or amounts advanced, without being able to claim any amount for compensation, as long as Inspire U Adventures has notified you in writing with a minimum of 15 days prior to the scheduled date of departure.
