The person who books any activity or service offered on www.tucmountainguides.com or on any other commercial strategy used by the company TUC Esquí, Trekking y Alpinismo, S.L., from now on “TUC Mountain Guides” is hereinafter referred to as "Client".
The assistance at any activity organized or conducted by Tuc Mountain Guides, implies the acceptance of the terms and conditions set out in this document. After filling in the form for the first time, required to attend any of the Tuc Mountain Guides activities, the subsequent acceptance of the terms and conditions is assumed for all future participations. Tuc Mountain Guides will inform at any time of any variation, inclusion or cancellation on any of the different paragraphs as well as the client will do so if modifications on the personal details.
3. Right of admission.
Tuc Mountain Guides reserves the right of admission in any of their activities, even if it has begun, for those people who, due to an inadequate physical condition or technical training, prevent the normal development of the activity or endanger their physical integrity, that of the participants or the guides.
4. Personal documentation.
All clients, without exception, must carry their original and valid personal documentation necessary to travel to the country or countries visited. Minors under 18 years of age must bring with them a written authorized permission to travel signed by their parents or guardians in case that it may be requested by any authority.
If special documents are required (visas, vaccination certificates, etc.) to travel to the destination, it is the client's responsibility to obtain them. The client assumes the consequences of not carrying them or invalidity.
In the event of any authority rejecting the required documentation, Tuc Mountain Guides declines all responsibility in any extra costs that the client will be involved. In these circumstances the conditions and rules established for voluntary rejection of contract will apply.
Under current law, any person hiring any activity offered by TUC Mountain Guides is entitled to posses an appropriate accident insurance.
Tuc Mountain Guides offers to all its clients an accident insurance for each of their activities, although, for the ones taking place outside Spain, the client will be required to hold a federative licence in mountain and climbing sports covering the geographical area and activity in question.
6. The guide.
The Tuc Mountain Guides who lead the TUC mountain activities are qualified professionals in accordance to the current legislation with the entire knowledge necessary to carry out the activity or activities contracted by the client. The main task of the guide is to ensure the success of the activity and the safety of every participant. In this sense, although every opinion regarding the different situations that may arise during the development of the activity are valued, the guide will be the one making the final decisions on any matter that affects the operation of the activity or safety of the participants.
If the client's inattention to the guide's instructions entails an obvious risk for the whole group, one of its members or for the client himself, he will be entirely responsible for the possible consequences.
The guide will have the authority to request the evacuation of a client for reasons of illness, accident or any other that compromises the safety of the group or the client. In this case, the client will not be able to claim any refund, regardless of what he may subsequently claim from his insurance company.
7. Loan and rental of equipment.
In the event that Tuc Mountain Guides rents or lends equipment to its clients to carry out an activity, any damage, with the exception of possible wear of normal use, or loss of the rented or lent equipment will be assumed by the client.
In the event that the client rents equipment to third parties, Tuc Mountain Guides will not be held responsible for the conditions of the hired equipment or the efficiency of the rental company, even if Tuc Mountain Guides has acted as an intermediary.
8. Personal equipment.
The client is required to have the appropriate equipment pointed out by the guide. This equipment must be in perfect state of use and must match the appropriate size for the client.

In case of any irregularity on the personal equipment or absence of it noticed at the beginning of the activity, the guide will be obliged to exclude this person from the activity without having the right to a refund of any percentage of the price of this activity.
9. State of health.
The client agrees to inform Tuc Mountain Guides or the guide leading the activity, in writing and on time, of any circumstance associated to his/her health that could affect the normal development of the activity, such as: allergies, phobias, behavioural disorders, cardiovascular diseases, important medical interventions, mobility limitations, or any medical recommendation related to the practice of sports that the client may have. This information must be stated before hiring any activity and will be considered confidential in all cases.
The client also agrees not to show to the activity under the effects of alcohol, drugs or any other medication that may affect its reflexes or its physical and intellectual performance.
