Terms & Conditions

      PORTUGAL MOTORCYCLE TOURS BOOKING – TERMS AND CONDITIONS

      In order to ensure peace of mind for Portugal Motorcycle Tours, but more importantly, for you as our valued customer, we need to stipulate terms and conditions.  Let us get the formalities out of the way, then we know where we stand and we can get down to the fun and adventure!

      The terms and conditions are applicable on all tours offered by, or booked with Portugal Motorcycle Tours.

      Accepting these terms and conditions also means that you agree that any legal disputes will only, explicitly and exclusively fall under the jurisdiction of the Portugal court of law.  The customer must comply with the laws, customs, foreign exchange and other regulations of the country you visit.

      LICENSE AND TRAVEL DOCUMENTS

      All riders must be in possession of a valid motorcycle driving license.  If your license is not in English you also need to bring an international drivers license.  Licenses are to be produced prior to the handover of the motorcycle.  All riders must be at least  26 years of age.

      All riders must produce a valid credit card prior to receiving their motorcycle.  The insurance excess amount of the motorcycle will be reserved on the credit card.  At the end of the tour, the reservation will be lifted, unless damages occurred.  In such a case the rider will be notified and the damages will be subtracted from the credit card.

      The customer is responsible for all legal documents, i.e. Passport, required Visas and Health Certificates for all the countries visited during the tour.

      PAYMENT AND CANCELLATION  FEES

      Upon booking, you will receive a confirmation e-mail and invoice within one working day.  A deposit of 30% is required to confirm your booking, not refundable .  The balance of the invoice amount must reflect in our bank account 45 days prior to the departure date of the tour, otherwise Portugal Motorcycle Tours reserves the right to cancel your booking and the applicable cancellation fees will be applied.  All bank transfer fees are for your account.  When you do the transfer, make sure to indicate this clearly to your bank.

      If you want to change to another tour, or to another tour date, we will consider it as a new booking and the cancellation fees will apply to the original tour.

      If you cancel your booking the following fees apply:

      –  29 to 15 days prior to departure:  50% of the tour costs

      –  14 to 8 days prior to departure: 75% of the tour costs

      –  7 to 0 days prior to the departure:  100% of the tour costs

      We will not be liable for any other costs, i.e. flight tickets, travel documents, vaccinations or other bookings made.  So, please take out travel insurance covering motorcycle travel, lost or theft of baggage and a good cancellation policy!
