Insurance

Tuk Tuk Safari strongly recommends that all guests obtain personal private travel insurance that provides cover against personal accident, medical expenses, emergency evacuation/repatriation and personal liability.

Guests should be aware that during the tour activities certain risks or hazards may be present, including but not limited to hazards of: travelling in a tuk tuk; working in a farm environment; undertaking activities involving hot wax, scissors, pins and sewing needles; entering commercial kitchens; and participating in food preparation.

When booking a Tuk Tuk Safari tour, guests should be aware that the tours take place in Vientiane, Laos which may not have the same standard of transport, safety, hygiene, medical facilities and infrastructure that guests may be used to in their home countries.

Please note that there are limited options for emergency medical care in Vientiane should this be required at any time. As indicated above, personal private travel insurance that provides cover for emergency evacuation/repatriation is strongly advised.

While all care is of course taken, Tuk Tuk Safari accepts no liability for personal injury or loss or damage to property sustained by any guest during the tour activities or travel to and from the activities.
