General Terms & Conditions
The tour operator is Bikelife, 9 Mendelson St, Netanya, 42242, Israel (known as Bikelife for purposes of these Terms and Conditions). By signing the booking form, you agree to the following terms and conditions between Bikelife and yourself (participant). Bikelife cannot accept a participant without a signed booking form. A reservation is complete for a participant when the participant submits a signed booking form and deposit. Please read the terms and conditions carefully.
Bikelife agents, representatives and guides are representing us, but are not a party to this contract, and are not responsible or liable for any failure to provide any service as may be described in our literature or pertaining to the contract.
A deposit of at least 10% per person is required at the time of booking. This deposit secures a place on the tour/motorcycle rental. Payment in full is required 45 days before the start of the tour. If the total balance is not received 45 days before the tour start, Bikelife reserves the right to cancel the reservation and will not be held responsible for any loss incurred to the person who booked.
Bikelife provides motorcycles as part of the tour package. The pictures of the motorcycles in literature or on this website do not always represent the exact version of the motorcycles provided. Please email or call if you need specific or customization information on exact motorcycle versions. Bikelife reserves the right to substitute a motorcycle confirmed to a participant, but will make every effort to contact the participant prior to any substitution. Most participants ride the motorcycle that is confirmed for them. However, certain uncontrollable situations (such as mechanical problems, damage or theft) may require a substitution.
Bikelife is responsible for providing the services listed in the tour descriptions according to the local standards, however due to situations beyond its control (such as road work, hotel closures, or weather), Bikelife reserves the right without prior notice to withdraw any part or all of a tour or to make such changes as may be necessary, and the extra cost, if applicable, shall be paid by the customer. It is agreed and understood that the Owners, Operators and Agents of this tour including Bikelife are not the guardians of the participant’s safety and they cannot be held liable in any way for any occurrence in connection with any activity in connection with the tour which might result in injury, death or other damage to the participant, his property, his family, or heirs. Bikelife is not responsible for any damage caused to third parties due to the participant’s activities during the tour. The liability of Bikelife is limited to a total of three times the tour price irrespective of the title/claim.
A 3% charge will be added to credit card payments made directly to Bikelife offline.
A security deposit of 2000 Euro will be held by Bikelife at the beginning of the tour period. The deposit will be held until the undamaged motorcycle is returned in acceptable condition. The deposit will be refunded at that time. You will be asked to sign a form for credit authorization in case of damage to the motorcycle. All motorcycles are insured with a third party liability insurance and comprehensive vehicle insurance. The usage period is not interrupted due to damage to the motorcycle or the inability of the participant to ride the motorcycle. During the usage period, Bikelife is not obligated to replace a damaged motorcycle.
If a participant provides his own motorcycle, no tour insurance will be provided by Bikelife.
In case of a customer canceling his/her booking after confirmation, Bikelife reserves the right to withhold the deposit/tour charge in part for costs incurred. Cancellation fee is as follows:
|Number of days prior to departure||Cancellation fee per person|
|More than 45days||Free|
|45 – 30 days||50% of tour price|
|29 – 15 days||75% of tour price|
|Less than 15 days before departure||No refund|
No exception to this policy can be made for any reason. Trip cancellation insurance is strongly recommended. Also consider Bikelife’s trip cancellation insurance.
In the case where Bikelife must cancel the tour due to lack of participation, the participant will be notified as soon as possible. Bikelife will offer to operate the tour if all participants agree to a supplemental charge due to the low number of tour members. If participants do not accept to pay the supplement, Bikelife will offer a self-guided tour at current self-guided tour prices to participants. If participants do not agree to pay the supplement or take a self-guided tour, Bikelife will refund their deposit and payments in full, which will constitute the full settlement. Bikelife is not liable for any additional costs or losses incurred by the participant due to the cancellation of the tour due to lack of participants. This includes, but is not limited to, the cost of pre-paid airline tickets, hotel reservations and automobile rentals. Situations beyond our control may arise which make it necessary for us to reschedule or cancel a tour, change itineraries or make substitutions regarding hotels, cities, guides and other travel arrangements. We do not assume responsibility or liability for any resulting losses, expenses or inconvenience to the participant. Bikelife is not required to make refunds once the tour commences, regardless of the reason for the participant’s inability to complete his tour.
If the participant does not comply with traffic laws, Bikelife reserves the right to revoke this contract and remove the participant’s motorcycle tour participation. A participant is responsible for all traffic tickets received during the tour. A service charge will apply for all unpaid tickets. Participants agree to not cause any damage to natural surrounding or third parties through their actions while riding their motorcycles. In the event a participant repeatedly ignores rules or causes others to feel threatened by their actions, Bikelife reserves the right to revoke this contract and remove the participant’s rental motorcycle. Every participant needs a valid motorcycle license to take part in the tour. The participant is responsible for complying with passport and visa regulations and takes responsibility for consequences resulting from non-compliance.
If a participant is travelling solo, we will attempt to find a suitable roommate for the participant if the participant requests it. In the case where this proves impossible, a single occupancy supplement will be charged.
A participant is fully aware of the risks and dangers involved in outdoor activities like swimming, white water rafting, rock climbing or any other activity potentially suggested as a supplemental activity to the tour and accepts full liability.
