Terms and conditions

Terms and conditions

The "Offbeat" theme of Muddie Trails:
Muddie Trails provides real offbeat experiences for the travelers like trekking, adventure activities, camping in tents, bonfire, barbecue, visiting exploring and experiencing the unknown but awesome destinations that are not crowded with tourists. We do NOT take travelers to a tourist place unless it is required as a "filler" in the itinerary between two offbeat places. 
Travelers are requested to refrain from asking our organizers to take them to ABC temple or XYZ church. The itinerary is already decided and posted based on our offbeat theme. Organizer will only change the itinerary if any place cannot be done because of unpredictable reasons. If you have a wish list of tourist places to tick off in your mind, then probably Muddie Trails is not for you and we request you - please do not register.

By paying the registration fee you are giving unconditional acceptance of the below 
Terms & Conditions of Muddie Trails:

1. No alcohol & smoking during Treks & adventure activities. There would be separate window and space (usually at night) to have these at campsite/homestay for interested people (only if the campsite/homestay permits)
2. We assure awesome memories every trip, but not awesome facilities! No Luxury. We provide basic facilities in terms of food, travel & accommodation. In some places, especially for treks & forest-related Meetups, expect not so neat washrooms/change rooms, and basic but edible food :)
3. We wouldnt want to waste time in sitting at a restaurant and munch our food for hours during trips. This wastes our precious time. So we pack our food whenever possible to avoid unnecessary delays.
3. In some Meetups, especially treks involving wild forest, expect leeches and other insects. However we can take precautions to avoid them - we discuss these things in our trip's WhatsApp group.
4. Our itinerary is flexible. It may happen we do not cover all the places mentioned in the itinerary because of unpredictable reasons like weather, wild animal presence, abrupt blocking of sites by the forest department, delay in travel because of an issue with our group itself, traffic conditions etc. In most cases, if the time permits, we try to travel to an alternative place. But in some cases, we may have to skip a place altogether.
5. Absolutely no littering during our travels. We swear to protect our environment.
6. Please co-operate with the organizer in following the schedule set for the day (especially getting up and getting ready in the morning). This will ensure we won't miss out on the real fun part - that is traveling. 
7. You are responsible for your own safety while traveling with Muddie Trails. Don't indulge in any illegal or silly activity that causes harm to you or fellow travelers.

Trek Policies:
* Nobody shall deviate from Trek path led by Organizers/Guide.
* During the meetup Muddie Trails is not responsible in case of any injuries or animal attacks or reptile bites.
* Expect the unexpected in case of wild forests like the sudden closing of trek path by govt/forest department(because of wild animal sighting/landslide/some crime), in which case we may have to cancel the trek (This is very rare - never happened till now). In this case, the Organizer will plan for alternate trek/trip. If this is not possible then Muddie Trails will refund the remaining amount after removing the travel cost.

Refund policy:
- Full refund if you make a request before 3 days of the meetup start date.
- 50% refund within 3 days and before 24 hours from meetup start time.
- No refund within 24 hours from meetup start time
- No refund during/after the meetup 
- 10% online gateway charges will be deducted in any kind of refund done online.

Note: The refund may take 1-3 weeks to reflect in your account.

Behavioral Policy: 
* Travelers are expected to respect each other and help each other.
* Avoid discussing sensitive matters like SEX, POLITICS and RELIGION/RACE
* Using foul or abusive language or arguing with fellow travelers/ organizer will not be acceptable and will stand a chance of being deserted by the travel group.

Reviews for Organizer 4.8
I went with #muddietrails on a trip to Agumbe and this was my first trip along with complete strangers to an unknown place. I had read the reviews about #muddietrails before I registered with these guys and was pretty convinced these are a good bunch of people who will organise things properly.Almost needless to say, the trip and the trek was extremely fun and very well organized. The bunch of people I trekked and stayed with were fun to hangout with and were extremely helpful and kind all round the trip and trek.While we started the journey from Bangalore, the bus that we had to board was delayed because of some reason and to compensate for that, the organisers booked cabs to a common spot where all could board at the same time in order to save sometime. Along with that, during the journey, the bus driver (was his first time as well I guess with #muddietrails) had some altercations with the organiser, but they handled the situation pretty maturely without causing any inconvenience to the people.While on this trip, I realized there were many people who had been to various places along with #muddietrails, so you can understand how much these guys trust #muddietrails.Some things you'll need to take care about is #muddietrails would ensure you enjoy the trip thoroughly but please do not expect luxury while staying and trekking.A big thanks to Surya Patel, the organiser who had been with us for this trip for making the trip a really enjoyable one. - by Jobin George for Monsoon special - The Agumbe Rainforest Camping | Muddie Trails organized by Muddie Trails .
