My number is[masked] . Please make sure you save it before leaving the house. Please do not leave voice mail or email me on the day as I will not be checking it until the evening that day or even after the trip. If you are having problems getting through, it’s probably because 10 other people are calling me at the same time – please text me in that case, it’s easier and quicker to get back to you this way.

IMPORTANT: By signing up to this trip you have agreed to the following disclaimer: 

'While safety is our top priority and although we never take unnecessary risks, we do recognise that any outdoor activity/trip involves a danger of personal injury or death. Remember that you should be aware of and accept these risks as you are responsible for your own safety and you should not undertake anything beyond your abilities. It is also your responsibility to be correctly equipped for the weather and activity you have chosen to participate in.' The organiser only facilitates the group, and doesn't take responsibility for your safety during the trip.

INSURANCE:

You also confirm that you will be responsible for your own insurance and make sure that it is at an appropriate level for this trip and activities you will be participating in (if in doubt, check with your insurance provider). 

BAD WEATHER:  

With all the crazy stuff happening with the weather recently, please note that we may be prevented from doing some of activities due to unpredictable weather events. If this is the case replacement activities will be offered.  

Cancellations:

Please note that unless the trip is cancelled the payments are non-refundable as the costs need to be paid in advance.

Contact:

Please note that in order to keep the costs low, the trips are set up in such a way that they can be fully managed online. The descriptions are very detailed and try to answer all your questions and you will find additional information in pages section of the website. Please only email us if your query is not answered in the event's description andplease only call us in case of emergency. I'm afraid we will not be able to get back to you if your query is answered above as with over 60 events coming almost 4,000 members and current volume of emails, this would require hiring admin support and setting up a call centre, which as you can imagine would increase the costs of the events considerably. Please help us provide excellent trips at fantastic value for you and keep your emails to the minimum. Please make sure you read the event's description before contacting us. 

Getting there and back: 

If you are taking a taxi to our event, you try 'bounce' app. They are 40% cheaper than black cabs and if you use a referral code CURIOUS KAT you will be getting £10 credit straight away. Note that the code needs to be inserted at the moment of signing up, just after registering the bank card.

    What does the hostel look like please, hoe many beds in room, outside showers, pool near by, (as it be super hot there at this time)? Thanks

    • Kat

      Hey, it is a hotel in the centre of Munich, most likely twin share (will only be able to figure out allocations once we have a final number of people). Shared bathrooms. And definitely no pool, but worth bringing bikini as apparently you can go for a dip in the lake where we are visiting the castles.
