Making a decision:
Deposit, Information Packets and Payment Terms:
2. You can pay the deposit over the phone by VISA, MASTER CARD or DISCOVER. We do not accept AMERICAN EXPRESS. If you want to pay your deposit by check, simply mail it to our mailing address. If you wish to make a wire transfer contact us here.
3. The Information Packet is sent on receipt of your deposit. Please read it carefully. Once you have sent in your deposit, received and read the Information Packet, contact us to interview with the trip leader or one of the owners. We want to be certain that we share the same expectations of the trip in terms of the service we will render, your responsibility as a client, issues of safety, hygiene, etc. You have one week from mailing or emailing of the information packet to cancel your participation and receive your deposit less the handling fee.
4. Payment/Cancellation Terms. Final payment is due 60 days prior to the trip departure date. In the event of cancellation within 31-60 days prior to the departure date there will be a refund of 50% of the land portion of the trip fee. In the event of cancellation within 30 days prior to the departure date there will be no refund of the land portion of the trip fee. We recommend the purchase of trip cancellation insurance.
Price Change of Internal Air Flights. We reserve the right to surcharge clients when internal flights increase by more than 5% from the cost of the air ticket at the time the trip deposit was paid. Air ticket prices are often hard to determine until just a month or two before travel and price changes are capricious.
5. Trip Evacuation Coverage is REQUIRED. We recommend Traveler's Emergency Network (TEN) because they offer superior coverage based on a calendar year, not just the length of your Boojum Expeditions trip. In other words the coverage will return you from Mongolia or Canada or Lithuania; wherever you may travel over the course of a year. TEN offers family plans that are quite reasonable. To purchase coverage, call 800-471-3695 or click www.tenweb.com .
When you have signed up for your coverage add your policy number to your online application form or send it to firstname.lastname@example.org. This is NOT medical coverage, simply coverage to pay the costs of emergency evacuation in the event of an injury that precludes you using public transportation.
Medical, Lost luggage Insurance:
Tibet/China: US Citizens who TRANSIT Beijing (less than 24 hours) do not need a visa. We recommend that you use a visa service like Zierer (www.zvs.com). They will provide current application forms and up to date instructions. Mentioning your plans to travel to Tibet in your application may complicate matters and slow the visa issuance process. Give your destination as Chengdu, Sichuan. Your permits for travel in western Sichuan and extensions to Lhasa will be handled in Chengdu by our local agent.
Argentina and Uruguay: US Citizens do not need a visa, just a valid passport. Other nationalities please check with local embassy of the country in question or call our office.
Single Supplement: Single Supplement is available on most trips but be sure to inquire about your specific program. In Mongolia, if you require a single supplement, the additional charge is $110/$130 for extra hotel nights outside our itineraries. If we cannot pair you with someone of same gender to share a double occupancy room/tent, the additional hotel room charge is $50.00 per hotel night and there is no charge for camping nights.
Airport Transit Hotel:
We specialize in Mongolia travel but we also offer adventure travel to Patagonia, Uruguay, Tibet. Horseback riding was our original interest when we pioneered travel adventures to China and Inner Mongolia and Tibet. We now offer tours and travel packages of all kinds in Mongolia (formerly Outer Mongolia) including camel riding, trekking, photography, fishing, horseback riding, culture, visiting Naadam, the Gobi, Lake Hovsgol (Lake Khovsgol) and the nomadic herders of Mongolia. In Ulan Bator we have our own offices though we are not really a travel agent, but an outfitter of travel and adventure in Mongolia. If want a riding vacation; whether a horseback riding vacation, a camel riding vacation or a jeep riding vacation, we'll be glad to create a travel adventure across Mongolia for you.
In Patagonia and Uruguay remember you can combine two
adventures and do both horseback riding trips in just two weeks of travel.
A Patagonia horseback riding vacation or a Uruguay horseback riding
vacation is just the thing for beginners or experienced equestrian travelers.
An equestrain vacation, horseback riding in Patagonia, Agentina or Uruguay
or Mongolia or Tibet is a great way to have a guided adventure.
Those of you who have endured reading the awful prose just preceding are probably wondering what kind of idiot wrote it. We must confess to both a capacity for better prose and an ulterior motive in writing so badly. Search engines look for correlations between your keywords like Mongolia travel, horseback riding, mongolia tour, Patagonia, Uruguay, Tibet, Gobi.. (see there I go again) and the frequency with which they appear on your page. In this everchanging cyber world, we need to keep up, I guess. Have a good riding vacation or adventure and come for Mongolia travel.
