These terms and conditions contain legal obligations and we encourage you to read through them carefully. Unless otherwise stated, any purchases made through Tourily.com are subject to these terms and conditions.
1. Our contract
All bookings are made with Tourily.com (us/we). By making a booking, the traveller/guest (you) is deemed to have agreed to these terms and conditions on behalf of all individuals included in the booking. The services to be provided are those in your booking confirmation invoice. No alterations or variations to these terms and conditions are in effect unless made in writing by and under the authority of Tourily.com
2. Pricing and payments
i. Prices and exchange rates — Prices are correct at the time of quoting, converted at the prevailing foreign exchange rate as set by Tourily.
ii. Price changes — The prices appearing on the website are the current rates and can change without notice. Once a traveller has booked through Tourily.com, the traveller will not be required to pay any difference in the event of a price increase. Tourily.com will not refund the balance of any price reduction.
iii. Child rate — Our child rates apply at the time of the tour, not the time of booking. Proof of age must be available for inspection on the day of travel. If a traveller is identified as not qualifying for a child price (if a child price is available for the tour), the traveller will be required to provide the balance of difference between the adult rate and child rate for the tour before being permitted to start the trip.
iv. Per person — All prices listed are on a per traveller basis unless otherwise stated.
v. Inclusions — Prices include all inclusions as indicated on the tour description on Tourily.com
vi. Exclusions — Prices do not include:
a) Tips and gratuities — If you are happy with the services provided by your local guides and drivers, a tip — though not compulsory — is appropriate. While it may not be customary to you, it is of great significance to the people who will take care of you during your travels, inspires excellent service, and is an entrenched feature of the tourism industry across many destinations. Please consider this when budgeting for your extra expenses on your tour.
b) Items of a personal nature — These may include snacks, meals, and drinks not outlined as an inclusion in the inclusions section of the tour description.
c) Baggage and personal insurance — It is highly recommended that each traveller obtains adequate insurance for their travels

a) Credit cards — Tourily accepts most major credit cards
b) Credit card service fee —Tourily.com does not charge travellers a service fee on credit card payments; however, we are incorporated in Gibraltar and our bank accounts are also domiciled in Gibraltar. We use a third-party payment gateway, TRUSTMYTRAVEL. Some banks have been known to charge their customers a small fee for what they see as an international transaction if your account is based outside of UK. Please check with your bank prior to purchase if this will affect your payment.
c) Payment due — Without exception full payment is required at the time of booking.
3. Cancellations/no-shows and amendments to bookings
3.1 Cancellations by the traveller

In circumstances where the cancellation is due to external events outside our reasonable control, refunds will be less any unrecoverable costs.

3.3 Amendments to bookings by the traveller

5. Your Tourily Adventure
5.1 Traveller confirmation
We recommend the lead traveller contact the local Tourily Partner 24 hours prior to the start of their tour to confirm the tour departure. The local partner’s contact information is available on the voucher provided following confirmation.
Travellers must adhere to the start time set out in the product information on their voucher. In the event a traveller is not at the designated starting point within 15 minutes of the start time provided, Tourily and the local Tourily Partner will consider the traveller to be a “no show” and the tour will start without them and no refund will be provided. The following start point(s) are outlined in the tour information and on the confirmation voucher:
a) Pick-up — If a pick-up is included in the tour, the times the service will be provided are listed in the product information and on the voucher (for example, 8.30am to 9.00am). The traveller should wait in the lobby of their pick-up point during the designated pick-up times.
b) Meeting point — If a meeting point is set for the tour, one time will be set as the start time (for example, 8.30am). The traveller should be waiting at the designated start point at the designated start time. It is recommended that you arrive at least 10 minutes prior to the start of the tour.
5.3 Your responsibility
The traveller making the booking is responsible for their own and their party’s actions. If Tourily.com or the local Tourily Partner deems you or your party’s actions to cause danger to other travellers or our staff, to intervene with other clients’ enjoyment of the trip, or to be offensive to the local communities and cultures, Tourily.com and the local Tourily Partner reserve the right to remove you from the tour immediately. No refund will be supplied. You must at all times comply with the laws, customs, foreign exchange, and drug regulations of all countries visited, and you also agree to travel in accordance with our responsible travel guidelines.
5.4 Acceptance of risk
You acknowledge that your tour may involve a degree of personal risk. You may be visiting places where the political, cultural, and geographical attributes present dangers and physical challenges greater than those present in your daily life. It is your own responsibility to acquaint yourself with all possible relevant travel information. You acknowledge that your decision to travel is made in light of consideration of this information and you accept that you are aware of the personal risks’ attendant upon such travel.
5.5 Conditions of suppliers
The services which make up your booking are provided by independent suppliers. Those suppliers provide these services in accordance with their own terms and conditions which will form part of your contract with us. Some of these terms and conditions may limit or exclude the supplier’s liability to you, usually in accordance with applicable International Conventions. Copies of the relevant parts of these terms and conditions are normally available on request from the supplier concerned.
6. Information accuracy

Please see the tour description to check whether a tour is child friendly. For tours featuring alcohol, travellers may be required to show proof of age of majority.
b) Health requirements — Some trips can be physically demanding, and travellers must ensure that they are suitably fit to allow participation. It is your responsibility to ensure that you are physically fit to participate.
8. Travel insurance
It is a requirement that all travellers booking a Tourily.com adventure, tour or activity have valid and comprehensive travel insurance. Neither Tourily.com nor the Tourily Partner can be held responsible for any liability, expenses, or losses you incur as a result of being inadequately insured. We strongly recommend that at the time of booking a comprehensive travel insurance policy is purchased.
9. Passports and visas
Unless travelling domestically, travellers must carry a valid passport and have obtained the appropriate visas when travelling with Tourily.com and the local Tourily Partners. Please ensure your passport is valid for 6 months beyond the duration of the trip. It is the traveller’s responsibility to ensure that you are in possession of the correct visas for your holiday.

13. Account Registration
a) For Operators – Tour operators that wish to take advantage of Tourily.com services and sell their tours on the Tourily Global Marketplace need to first submit their application via the Partners sign up form. Tourily.com reviews all sign up requests and assesses the compatibility of the tour operators’ product with the Tourily platform. Upon reviewing the sign up request the Tourily.com team informs the operator whether or not working together is possible. Tourily.com reserves the right to decline the application at this stage, or any other, stage.
14. Tour Listings

To this end, you will be asked a variety of questions about the Tour to be listed, including, but not limited to, the location, capacity, itinerary, features, availability of the Tour and pricing and related rules.
b) Partners working with Tourily.com are responsible for making sure that their tour listings on Bokun.io platform are up to date. If any tours are removed by the partner on Tourily’s contract, the partner must inform Tourily immediately via the Bokun contract management tool.
c) Other Members will be able to book your Tour based upon the information provided in your Listing. You acknowledge and agree that you are responsible for any and all Listings you post. Accordingly, you represent and warrant that any Listing you post and the booking of, (i) will not breach any agreements you have entered into with any third parties (such as any agreements with or rules of employers or local tourism agencies) and (ii) will (a) be in compliance with all applicable laws, Tax requirements, and rules and regulations that may apply to any Tour included in a Listing you post, including, but not limited to, tourism, tour guide licensing laws, and other laws governing events and tours of public spaces and other venues and (b) not conflict with the rights of third parties. Please note that Tourily.com assumes no responsibility for a Partners’ compliance with any applicable laws, rules and regulations. Tourily.com reserves the right, at any time and without prior notice, to remove or disable access to any Listing for any reason, including Listings that Tourily.com, in its sole discretion, considers to be objectionable for any reason, in violation of these Terms or otherwise harmful to the Services.
d) You understand and agree that Tourily.com does not act as an insurer or as a contracting agent for you as an Operator. If a Traveller requests a booking of your Tour and participates in your Tour, any agreement you enter into with such Traveller is between you and the Traveller and Tourily.com is not a party thereto. Notwithstanding the foregoing, Tourily.com serves as the limited authorised agent of the Operator for the purpose of accepting payments from the Traveller on behalf of the Operator and is responsible for transmitting such payments to the Operator, subject to these Terms.

e) We cannot be held responsible for descriptions by or on any third party or agent sites.
f) Tours or experiences may occasionally be withdrawn for reasons outside of our control, and Tourily.com cannot be held liable for any costs incurred as a result of this.
