If a tour is cancelled, Dirt Gypsy Adventures carries no responsibility for guest’s personal expenses, including hotel arrangements and airfare. Contact our staff to confirm your tour details before making your finalized travel arrangements.

Medical & Travel Insurance

We strongly recommend purchasing travel insurance and have medical insurance in place to protect you from financial loss during your trip. Accidents, injuries, flight delays, cancellations from vendors, and a variety of other unexpected hurdles can happen.

Having travel interruption insurance and travel medical & evacuation insurance are personal decisions, but we cannot stress the importance of heavily considering these before attending your tour. If you do elect to purchase  medical coverage, do so shortly after paying your trip deposit.Travel medical insurance provides coverage for personal accident, including broken bones, dismemberment, death, emergency remote evacuation including helicopter evacuation, medical expenses and emergency repatriation. If you purchase medical and evacuation insurance you must provide policy details to our office before your trip departure date via email. Travel interruption insurance typically must be secured within 2 weeks of paying your tour deposit and you will be asked for proof of insurance before trip start. If you choose to travel without adequate insurance coverage, Dirt Gypsy Adventures will not be liable for any losses howsoever arising, in respect to insurance coverage that would have otherwise have been available.

Pre-Trip Information

You will be emailed material specific to your tour, clinic, shuttle or rental after paying your deposit. It is your responsibility to review all of the information contained within. You must also update your personal information, travel documents and travel insurance details as soon as possible if these details change after completing the rider questionnaire. It is your responsibility to contact us if any information is incorrect or if you have any questions. We cannot accept liability or responsibility if you do not notify us of any inaccuracies. If you fail to submit your travel documents, personal details and other necessary documentation prior to departure, we reserve the right to treat your booking as cancelled by you and impose the cancellation fees described in this agreement.

Reservations & Book Now Policy

Reservations for Dirt Gypsy Adventures’ tours can be made by calling us at 844-464-9779. General questions regarding our tours and destinations can also be directed to info@dirtgypsyadventures.com. We offer the ability to reserve a space on any of our tours by clicking the ‘Reserve Your Spot ’ tab, where you can fill out a request form. One of our team members will contact you shortly thereafter to proceed with finalizing the booking and to collect a deposit. Filling out the form and submitting it DOES NOT guarantee your reservation. Your space on a tour will be held for 48 hours. If we are unable to contact you within the 48-hour window, you will forfeit your reservation (at no penalty), so please be sure to double check your contact information before clicking ‘submit’.

We ask that clients do not book flights without first consulting with our office. Each trip is confirmed to run, when we have a minimum of four participants booked. All travel documents, flight details, and personal information, and any required trip add-ons must be paid for and submitted to our office prior to 60 days before the start of the trip. If you’re unable to have this information to us and your balance paid to us by 60 days – advise our office of your plans. We’ll do our best to accommodate last-minute requests, but within 60 days of the ride departure, we cannot guarantee we can deliver the advertised itinerary. 

Changes to Itinerary

Dirt Gypsy Adventures holds the right to modify any of our itineraries without notice to our guests. Weather (and other acts of God), regional events, lodging availability, and group sizes can drastically effect our operations. In striving to offer the best experience, revisions to our tours may be made leading up to departure date and include (but are not limited to) routes, hotels, and restaurants. Please note that we are committed to offering the best experience possible and will enact as few changes as deemed necessary to ensure this is achieved.

Children on Tour

Dirt Gypsy Adventures happily offers our scheduled multi-day tours to any guest aged 15 and over. Please take the ability of your children into account when selecting your tour. We are more flexible with this age requirement with our one day tours and can often times cater to younger individuals. Call to discuss before booking. For children that are 14 and younger, we suggest you contact our office to discuss options that are best suited for these young riders. We may recommend a private or custom tour designed to cater to the age & skill level of your children, your travel dates, and group size to maximize value, safety, and an overall incredible experience.

Assisted Travel Planning

With an intimate and in-depth knowledge of the regions we operate tours in, Dirt Gypsy Adventures is proud to serve as a viable resource to our guests when arranging travel to/from one of our adventures. We’re happy to spend some time with you recommending hotel, airline, dining, and transportation options, but we assume no responsibility in errors or complications that arise from arrangements made external to our tours.

Permitting

Our tours are operated with special use permits granted by the land management agencies and governing bodies that regulate and govern the trails, forests, parks and recreational areas that our operations take place within. Permitting from the US Forest Service, BLM, and other agencies may impose limits as to how many guests we can have on a given tour; therefore you may see the maximum guest cap vary from one tour to the next. Preliminary itineraries may exist on our website for tours where special use permitting is undergoing review and not yet secured – the itinerary listed in these instances will undergo slight modifications to ensure our operations abide by the legal requirements as a commercial tour operator.

Limitations of Liability

Please refer to your liability release for a full description of Dirt Gypsy Adventures limitations of liability. Dirt Gypsy Adventures is not responsible for bodily injury, illness, death or property damage that results from participation in any of our tours. Mountain biking is often times a physically demanding sport with inherent risks related to terrain, skill, fitness, experience, and weather conditions.
