Terms & Conditions
Itinerary and Quotation Validity
All information in this itinerary is accurate to the best of our knowledge but please note that changes to our trips can and do occur. This may be due to our effort to improve our trip or logistical reasons such as changes in train/flight schedules or government policies. WildChina will make every effort to keep you informed of any changes, but cannot be held liable for any alterations made to the published itineraries.
The prices listed are based on the costs and exchange rates current at the time of enquiry. Prices are not guaranteed until booking.
A deposit is required to secure your reservation. To secure a reservation, a deposit of USD 500 per person is required. Complete payment is required 60 days prior to departure. For trips booked less than 60 days before departure, complete payment is required immediately. Tour prices are per person and based on double occupancy. If a customer fails to make full payment of the trip 60 days prior to departure, WildChina reserves the right to cancel the tour and retain the deposit.
Modifications, Cancellations & Refunds

No refund will be made if clients voluntarily leave a trip for any reason after the trip has begun. Refunds will be at the discretion of WildChina if clients are involuntarily forced to leave a trip for any reason. WildChina reserves the right to cancel any trip departure before it is guaranteed to run. A trip is guaranteed to run once it has one fully paid traveler, unless minimum numbers state otherwise. WildChina reserves the right to cancel any trip, including a guaranteed trip, prior to departure due to reasons outside its control (i.e. natural disasters or political instability). In such a case, WildChina will refund the trip price. Under extraordinary circumstances caused by civil unrest, terrorism, natural disaster or other force majeure, either party may cancel the trip. If such cases occur 45 days or more before trip departure, WildChina will refund clients fully less the deposit. If such cases occur within 45 days of departure, WildChina will refund clients fully less the deposit and any expenses incurred to date that are directly related to preparation of such trip. Such expenses may include preview trips conducted specifically for the above-mentioned trip.
To cancel a trip please, contact your WildChina travel designer.
All WildChina travelers are also required to provide a copy of their medical insurance card prior to trip departure. In the event of a medical emergency, WildChina's first call of action would be to contact the International SOS 24-hour center, where doctors would instruct our staff on appropriate next steps, which may include rest, a visit to a SOS-recommended hospital, or, in extreme cases, evacuation.
