Terms & Conditions

Read these terms and conditions carefully – they constitute a legally binding contract between you and The Zuri Project (TZP). By clicking “I Agree” (or signing this document) you are entering into and agreeing to be bound by the terms and conditions contained in this agreement.

PAYMENT

If accepted to participate in one of our programs, a deposit of $500 is required to hold your place, and will be applied towards the full cost of the program. Deposits can be made through our website – visa, Mastercard, American Express and PayPal.

If at any point in the admissions process we determine that you have provided false, misleading or incomplete information and/or statements, we may withdraw our offer of participation and any payments made to TZP will not be refunded.

Minus your $500 trip deposit, final payment is due no later than six weeks prior to trip departure date. Final payment consists of total trip price. TZP reserves the right to withdraw our offer of admission for unpaid applicants whose full tuition is more than 15 days past due, with no return of fees. TZP will attempt to send a courtesy balance reminder via e-mail 5 days before your account becomes past due, but TZP is not required to do so.

The price of the trip includes everything except: International airfare, personal spending money, extra baggage fees, lost luggage fees, international medical insurance.

INSURANCE / REFUNDS / WITHDRAWALS / EARLY DEPARTURES

The Zuri Project recommends international traveler’s insurance for your child through World Nomads. Please refer to www.worldnomads.com for detailed information. The parent/guardian is 100% responsible for all costs after insurance limits are met.

If you must cancel your trip, please do so in writing.  Any cancellations made 30 days prior to departure date cannot be reimbursed through TZP. Please understand that our refund policy is based on our investment in pre-paid trip expenses before programs begin. Costs are based on total group, not a per-person, rate. Expenses on cancellations cannot be recovered by TZP. In addition, short notice cancellations prevent others from attending.

TZP reserves the right to accept or reject any person as a trip member at any time, without a refund. Unsafe actions, abusive language, theft, negative, offensive or harmful behavior will result in immediate dismissal from the program. Drugs (other than prescription drugs), drug paraphernalia, alcohol and tobacco are strictly prohibited on all TZP programs abroad and use and/or possession will result in immediate dismissal. Participants that are dismissed by TZP will be returned home at their own expense and without a refund.

THE ZURI PROJECT – CANCELLATION

Cancellation of a trip is highly unlikely. Our intention is to follow, as precisely as possible, the itineraries as described in the trip brochure and online. Severe weather could force an itinerary change. If an activity or area is cancelled, it will be replaced with a comparable one.  In the event that TZP cancels a program due to insufficient enrollment, then TZP will provide a full refund of the program price paid. Airfare should not be booked without permission from TZP.

MEDICAL INSURANCE & RELEASE FORMS

There is some element of risk in program activities of community service, global perspectives, multi-sport/adventure programs, leadership programs, water sports, scuba diving, hiking and all other program activities. All participants must be covered my medical insurance. TZP will provide each participant with medical release forms. It is the parent/guardian’s obligation to inform TZP of any changes in the participant’s physical condition once his/her medical form has been returned.

Should a participant arrive with a previously undisclosed physical or psychological condition, TZP reserves the right to immediately terminate that individual’s participation and such participant shall be returned home at his/her expense and without a refund.

PRIVACY

TZP does not sell, or share personal information about participants or their families with other people or non-affiliated companies except as necessary in connection with participation on one of our excursions. We will not share any such personal information with marketers, advertisers, or the like.
