The registration fee of £350 is non-refundable and does not form part of the required sponsorship. If you withdraw from the trip any later than 10 weeks before departure, you are responsible for paying the full costs that have been incurred by MDAUK for your place.
In order to participate in the Trek, you must raise a minimum of £1,750 sponsorship and send half to MDAUK at least 8 weeks before the departure date. The remaining balance must then be paid within 4 weeks of the trip. Should you not participate in the Trek, sponsorship money should be sent to MDAUK or returned to the sponsor if requested. Alternatively, you can pay £2100 to cover the cost of the trip and fundraising.
All participants must individually arrange for and be covered by suitable travel insurance so that they are covered throughout the entirety of the trip.
If you withdraw from participation in circumstances where recovery of costs can be indemnified under your travel insurance, you hereby agree that you will co-operate with the insurance company and MDAUK to recover costs.
The Trek is not a race. You agree to observe all instructions and rules issued by MDAUK, its agents or suppliers, whether before or during the course of the Trek. MDAUK may at any time during the Trek terminate your participation if they consider it necessary for the health or safety of you or the other participants in the Trek.
We will aim to arrange hotel room sharing based on your choices. Single supplements must be covered by the participant.
By taking part, you agree that any photographs taken during the trip may be used by MDAUK for publicity and marketing purposes.
Where additional, unanticipated costs are incurred as a result of circumstances beyond MDAUK’s control (such as fuel, tax, landing fees, exchange rate changes, accommodation) MDAUK reserves the right to require you to meet any such additional costs.
You are responsible for your own safety. Neither MDAUK, its employees nor its agents can be held responsible for loss or damage to personal effects, accident, injury or death howsoever arising, except where injury or death arises as a result of MDAUK’s negligence.
The Trek is physically demanding and it is your responsibility to ensure that you have the appropriate level of fitness and are in good health in order to participate. If you have any medical conditions which could be adversely affected by exercise, particularly a heart condition, or if you have any doubts about your health, you must get separate written clearance from your doctor. You will be responsible for arranging any vaccinations that may be required.
MDAUK will not pass on personal information to any third parties without your consent, except as may be required for the purposes of the Trek.
