The cost of our main, pre and post trips includes no travel insurance. Adequate and valid travel insurance is mandatory for all clients while on one of our trips. You are strongly advised to insure yourself against any possible risk that may occur while in Peru and in particular to ensure that you have sufficient coverage for medical emergency, medical evacuation caused by altitude and high altitude or any other unforeseeable circumstance such as death, repatriation, or cancellation of your trip due to illness before the trip starts (whether it is your own illness or that of an immediate family member or traveling companion.) You should purchase a policy that provides financial compensation, refunds and benefits in case of trip cancellation, travel delay, luggage delay or loss.
You are responsible for insuring all activities included in the itineraries of our pre, post and main trips for the entire duration of the tour. DHSG E.I.R.L. will not be responsible for costs you may incur as a result of not having adequate travel insurance.

3. CANCELLATION FEES.
You or any member of your group/party may cancel your tour at any time. Notification of cancellation must be made in writing to DHSG E.I.R.L. Your cancellation will be effective upon our receipt of your written communication. Since we start to incur costs from the time the contract is confirmed, we will retain a percentage deducted from the total package price. These charges are based on how many days before your booked departure we receive your cancellation notice. The retention of the percentage is as follows:
Cancellation Fee Schedule
Up to 91 days prior to departure: We don't charge one! Just the reservation deposit.
61-90 days prior to departure: 25% of trip cost plus reservation deposit
46-60 days prior to departure: 50% of trip cost plus reservation deposit
45 days or less: 100% of trip cost.
The refund will be made from a Peruvian bank with a deposit of the total amount of your refund balance, DHSG E.I.R.L. will not cover any transaction charges by your bank for the wired money nor guarantee the amount of money that you receive at your bank. Your bank may impose transaction charges for the wired money.
4. IF YOU CHANGE THE DATE OF DEPARTURE.
Any alteration to the departure date will be subject to payment by you of any costs imposed by any of the suppliers providing the component parts of the tour. Any alteration by you within 45 days of departure will be treated as a cancellation of the original booking and will be subject to cancellation charges.
