Beirut Bound coordinates services using independent Service Providers. These companies have their own terms and conditions, and are subject to the laws of the country or region where the services are provided. Beirut Bound does not own, manage or operate any transportation, vehicle, hotel, restaurant or any other supplier of services. All services we provide are subject to the terms, conditions and limitations of liability imposed by our contractors. We exclude all liability for loss or damage that may arise from the actions of Service Providers or their agents. We do not accept liability or any claim for compensation for any damage, loss, injury, delays, cancellations, additional expenses or inconvenience caused by any events that are outside our control. The Terms & Conditions are governed by the laws of the State of New South Wales. It is necessary to contact Beirut Bound immediately if any issue arises during your trip, so that we can resolve the issue with the relevant supplier. If this isn’t possible and you wish to lodge a complaint, please write to us within 30 days of your return with copies of supporting documentation.

All travellers are required to be aware of the documentation needed for travel, including passport, visa and health requirements.

- SPECIAL REQUIREMENTS
You are required to disclose any special requirements to Beirut Bound at the time of the booking. It is your duty as Representative Customer to notify Beirut Bound if any persons on your trip have any special requirements. This may be a dietary, health, or any other requirement. Beirut Bound will attempt to cater to any and all special requirements, but this may not always be possible due to the nature of the tour or the limited options available at some destinations. Certain activities may not be accessible depending on your requirements. You must notify Beirut Bound of all food allergies and dietary restrictions at the time of the booking, but Beirut Bound cannot insure that these requirements can be catered to. Special requests and requirements are not included in the Terms and Conditions or the contract between you and Beirut Bound, therefore Beirut Bound is not liable for not meeting these requests.
- AGE REQUIREMENTS
A minor is anyone who is under the age of 18 on the date of first travel. Minors must always be accompanied by an adult. The accompanying adult responsible for the minor is expected to provide all consents required by applicable law, as well as documentation and they are to ensure that they and the minor(s) meet all legal requirements to travel, to enter into and depart from applicable countries and regions. Beirut Bound will not be responsible for any fees, damages, or losses incurred as a result of any failure to secure necessary consents, permits, and approvals. Adults responsible for a minor or minor(s) on a trip are responsible for the behaviour, wellbeing and supervision of these minor(s). These adults accept these Terms and Conditions for and on behalf of any minor(s) on their booking, including all assumptions of risk and limitations of liability. Beirut Bound does not provide care services for minors and expressly disclaims any responsibility for chaperoning or controlling any minor(s).
