6. The legalities
Traveling: The consumer must obey the laws of the Republic of Ireland, the European Union and India state, whilst traveling with us. This includes wearing a seat belt, not distracting the driver, remaining seated and not endangering themselves or passengers at any time while on any transport. The organisers will endeavour to ensure that all activities start and finish on time, therefore please ensure you are ready to leave your accommodation and activities on time.
To follow the instructions of guides, especially when trekking at high altitudes.
The organisers would ask consumers to show respect to the many diverse customs that exist in Ireland, and in this part of Donegal and especially so during our trips abroad to India , this also includes socialising with fellow tourists and travelers. If your actions have been deemed discriminatory to others, dangerous or illegal , you may be asked to leave, your package may be cancelled without any refund and you will no longer be allowed to attend mng.ie packages and associate activities. It is at the discretion of the organisers and/or local authorities to decide to cancel your package in this instance and their decision will be final.
Accommodation: Please be mindful of others sharing accommodations and those living in close proximity to accommodations, excessive noise, especially at night time, destruction of property or dangerous activities will not be tolerated. The accommodation providers reserve the right to ask consumers to leave if rules are broken and may decide to contact the Garda Síochana. Once again it is at the desecration of the organisers to take further action such as cancelling the package without refund, if deemed appropriate.
Activities: It is a condition of bookings that customers comply with the authority and decisions of the organisers and associates. This includes listening to instructions to ensure yours and others safety and enjoyment at all times. If you do not comply with the organisers or activity providers instructions and are not compatible with the general enjoyment and well being of members of the package, organisers reserve the right to refuse to allow said consumer to continue that activity. In such a case organisers will not be liable for any refund, compensation or any additional costs incurred by said consumer(s). The organisers cannot accept liability for the behaviour of others on activities nor if any activities are cancelled as a result of their actions., in this instance organisers will endeavour to provide alternative options to members.
When booking a package, the consumer accepts responsibility for any damage or loss caused by themselves. Full payment for any such damage or loss must be paid at the time direct to the accommodation or other activity/transport supplier. If the consumer fails to do so, they will be responsible for meeting any claims (including legal costs) subsequently made against mng.ie as a result of their actions.
