The terms and conditions set forth below, together with any additional documentation we give you, and any additional terms and conditions of any Supplier that are applicable to your travel arrangement (“The Agreement”), constitute the entire understanding and agreement between you the trip “Participant” and JN Adventures LLC dba JUMP Adventures “JUMP Adventures” with respect to any and all bookings, tours or transactions made with JUMP Adventures. The Agreement describes what you are legally entitled to expect from us when you book your trip through us, in addition to important obligations you enter into as a participant that affect your legal rights. Therefore, it is of vital importance that you read everything we provide to you in their entirety. You must be at least 18 years old to participate in our trips.
By submitting a booking form, you accept all of the terms in this agreement and direct us to perform services on your behalf. All persons named in this booking (“Participants”) are subject to this agreement. By making a booking, you affirm that you have made all other Participants listed in the booking aware of these terms – regardless of how final payment is made – and that all Participants accept these terms. JUMP Adventures is not responsible for any participant’s unawareness of the Terms and Conditions due to the failure of the lead participant to share this information with all participants in the booking. If you do not agree with our terms and conditions you must speak with us before making any booking.
You may reserve space on a tour by submitting an online booking form. A booking is not final until you receive a final confirmation from us.
Deposits and Final Payment:
Planning travel takes time and effort and many costs are incurred before you ever depart, therefore a non-refundable planning fee of $850 per person is required at the time of booking. Final payment is due according to payment schedule of reserved departure, but no less than 75 days prior to departure. If your booking is made within 75 days of departure, the entire tour cost must be paid upon booking.
If we do not receive any payment due in full and on time, we reserve the right to treat your booking as cancelled by you in which case the cancellation charges set out below will become payable. We reserve the right to refuse a booking without giving any reason and shall, in that event only, return any deposit received. Reservations are transferable at the sole discretion of JUMP Adventures.
Air travel is not included in the price of the trip and cancellation charges for air travel will be governed by the terms and conditions of the airline. Participants must NOT purchase air travel tickets to or from the destination until the booking is confirmed. If participants purchase air travel before confirmation is received and the trip is then cancelled either by the participant or by JUMP Adventures, we will not be responsible for the expense of the ticket.
Payments may be made by credit card or bank transfer. Credit card fees are paid by the Participant. Bank transfers do not incur a fee, however if you pay by bank transfer, we cannot confirm your reservation until your payment has cleared the bank (5-7 business days). All payments are processed through WeTravel.
By authorizing payments through WeTravel you acknowledge that the charges made by you are legitimate charges, and you will not challenge any legitimate charges made. In the event of a participant initiating any chargeback or attempt to reverse your credit card for these legitimate charges, you will be responsible for any court costs or losses incurred by JUMP Adventures to recover those funds, including, without limitation, attorney fees.
What’s Included in a Tour
Accommodations are provided as detailed in your itinerary. Accommodation may be on board ship, lodges, and other unique experiences. Special requests such as single rooms, lower floors, connecting rooms and smoking preference, must be made at the time of booking. While we will make reasonable efforts to communicate your requests to the supplier, such requests are not guaranteed and are at the discretion of the supplier. There may be additional charges for such requests which will be solely the expense of the participant making the request.
Participants should be aware that hotel room sizes, standards and facilities can vary regionally and are often different from standards in the United States. This can include difference in bed sizes and room sizes, bathroom amenities, amenities such as air-conditioning and compliance with other standards such as ADA and wheelchair accessibility. One of the joys of international travel is experiencing different cultures and different ways of life, so we hope that you will accept these differences with grace and a sense of adventure.
JUMP Adventures reserves the right, if necessary, to substitute other similar hotels for hotels listed on your itinerary. Such substitutions may be made at any time and without prior notice. We cannot be held responsible for hotel over-bookings; should such occur, we will undertake to find similar accommodations in the same area. Such substitutions are at JUMP Adventures sole discretion and no refunds will be offered for changes in accommodations.
While we exercise due diligence in the selection of our partners, hotel and other accommodation profiles are based on information provided to us by the supplier. This includes images and descriptions of the properties and rooms. Additionally, participants should be aware that star ratings or similar systems are based on country classifications and therefore can differ. While JUMP Adventures does its best to maintain current and accurate information regarding these suppliers, we cannot be held responsible for any inaccuracies in supplier descriptions, amenities, or images.
Meals and Activities:
Meals are as indicated in the itineraries. Special diets should be requested at the time of booking; however, it may not be possible for special diets to be catered to in some of the destinations we feature. For safety and liability reasons, JUMP Adventures and its representatives cannot be responsible for directly accommodating any food allergies, or dietary requirements and restrictions, and is not responsible for any issues or problems associated with the same. We will advise the hotels of your request but we cannot guarantee their availability.
Activities are included as provided in the individual itineraries. As a courtesy to others in the tour, it is mandatory that you be on time for all scheduled experiences. Activities will begin on-time and failure to arrive will be considered a no-show for which no refunds will be available. At times, early morning departure times may help create a better experience. Therefore, late arrivals cannot be accommodated.

This can include, but is not limited to items such as airfare, checked and/or excess baggage; transfers, passport and visa fees; trip protection and/or insurances of all kinds; laundry; phone calls; minibar; beverages and meals not detailed in the itinerary; optional experiences; and all items of a personal nature.

The price does not cover costs and expenses, including your return home, if you leave the tour whether of your own volition, our decision based on behavior that disrupts the trip, due to illness, action by any government or other reason. This list is illustrative and not a complete list of every item not included.

JUMP Adventures reserves the right to make changes to its published itineraries which we deem insignificant and are due to reasons beyond our control. In such cases, we will arrange for the substitution of comparable services.
While no changes are anticipated, there may be occasions when certain alterations become necessary. These can be due to religious holidays, national celebrations, or unforeseen events including weather, governmental closures, acts of God, or any other reason. JUMP Adventures reserves the right to change the itinerary due to such unforeseen circumstances or emergencies. These changes will not be considered a material changes and will not be considered cause for cancellation by the participant.
If we suggest alternate activities in place of a planned stop or in case of leisure time, such suggestions do not constitute our endorsement. In such a case you will be subject to the terms and conditions of the supplier of the activity and your only recourse in case of damage will be against the supplier of the alternate activity.
Cancellations by You and Refunds:
As described above, JUMP Adventures is required to pay all suppliers well in advance of your tour date. This includes but is not limited to accommodations, meals, transportation, guides, etc. All suppliers have their own cancellation policies, which apply to your booking.

Upon, receipt, JUMP Adventures will work with suppliers to recover any applicable refunds as outlined in the supplier’s terms and subject to their review. If you are entitled to a refund, please note that the supplier is responsible for this refund, not JUMP Adventures. Suppliers may choose to provide a travel voucher or credit in lieu of refund. We are not responsible for a supplier’s failure to pay a refund or for supplier bankruptcy or insolvency.
In addition to the terms of our suppliers cancellation fees will be applied per person according to the following schedule, based on the date we receive your written notification:
- Deposit ($850 per person) is non-refundable for all cancellations.
- Prior to 75 days before departure, trip balance (not including non-refundable deposit and any non-refundable payments made to suppliers) may be refunded in full only if trip is sold out and a new and previously unregistered participant books your canceled spot and pays in full.
- For cancellations made on or after the final due date, no money will be refunded.
No refunds will be provided for any unused portion of a tour once the tour begins, including if you leave a tour for any reason or have to be removed from a tour. There are no exceptions to this cancellation and refund policy, including for reasons related to weather, terrorism, civil strife, personal, family or medical emergencies or any other circumstances beyond our control. For this reason, we strongly encourage you to purchase trip cancellation and interruption protection.

We reserve the right to cancel, alter or modify any tour without prior noticefor any reason, especially for the safety and/or comfort of participants. You acknowledge that the amenities, accommodations, transportation, route, schedule, and itinerary may change without prior notice due to local circumstances or events, which may include mechanical breakdown, flight cancellations, illness, strikes, political disputes, weather, border crossing problems, and other unforeseeable factors. If, prior to departure, we make a significant change because of a problem with a supplier (e.g., bankruptcy), we will, as soon as reasonably possible, notify you of available alternatives.
Any changes may require a supplemental payment from you or result in a refund less any cancellation fees and nonrefundable deposits. If we cancel, which is rare, a full refund will be issued to you less any nonrefundable deposits advanced to local suppliers. This refund will constitute full settlement of claims you may have arising out of our cancellation. No refunds under this paragraph will be provided due to cancellations or changes due to Force Majeure.

All tours are based on a minimum number of participants. JUMP Adventures makes every effort to ensure that tours meet their minimum requirements. However, if the tour drops below the minimum number of participants cancellation of the tour may occur at the sole discretion of JUMP Adventures.

Because each participant’s risk tolerance is different, JUMP Adventures is not in a position to advise or recommend whether travel to any particular place at any particular time should take place. You should refer to objective third-party sources of travel information, such as that maintained by the U.S. Department of State (travel.state.gov) to make decisions about travel. In addition, you should consult with government websites in the country you plan to travel to ensure that you are in compliance with all requirements for admittance into that country as well as understanding local laws that govern travel within the country, such as tracking.

You expressly waive any right you may have to recover such damages.
