Terms & Conditions
Niko Works provides photo workshops designed to provide each participant
with a safe, educational, and an enjoyable experience.
Eligibility: Participants in a Niko Works Workshop must be 18 years of age or over.
Basis of Rates: All prices and fares are quoted in Indian Rupee (INR). The rates are based on current tariffs and are subject to change due to unforeseen circumstances. While we will do everything possible to maintain the listed prices, if it is necessary to levy a surcharge, we reserve the right to do so, and notification will be given at the time of final invoicing.
Not Included: Air or ground transportation to and from the workshop destination, and related fees (except as indicated in the itinerary); activities noted as excursions and/or noted as optional in the itinerary; gratuities, unless otherwise noted on the itinerary page; passport and visa expenses; baggage/accident/cancellation insurance; personal expenses, such as laundry, telephone calls, and alcoholic beverages; and any other items not specifically noted as included.
Accommodations: Niko Works reserves the right to change accommodations based on our final attendance count, pricing and other factors that might influence our decision. We typically stay in hotels in the 4-star category, and we look for unique hotels which offer cultural, historic and/or authentic features.
Single/Shared Accommodations: We do not offer shared rooms for guests who do not know each other. If you are not sharing a room with a partner, spouse, friend, or family member, you will be required to travel as a single and pay the single supplement fee.
Payments, Cancellations and Refunds: To reserve space on a Niko Works workshop a minimum INR 2,00,000 per-person non-refundable deposit is required. Balance payment will be due within 30 days of registration or before 60 days of workshop date, whichever is earlier. If registration is done within 60 days of workshop date, then entire payment must be done together. Balance payments will also be non-refundable and may be made by international or domestic bank wire transfer. We don’t not provide any refund on cancellation. However, in case the workshop is cancelled by us, for any reason, the extent of our liability is limited to the full return of the fees paid for the workshop.
Health Requirements: You must be in good physical and mental health. You must be able to maintain the pace of the group throughout the tour. Any physical condition, diet, or treatment requiring special attention must be reported in writing when you register. Failure to participate in daily activities due to physical or mental health will not result in any refund. For special dietary requirements, we do our best to convey this information to restaurants and food establishments, but communication of these requirements to restaurants and food establishments is ultimately your responsibility.
Photography: We reserve the right to take photographs or videos during the operation of any workshop or part thereof and to use the resulting photography, videos, or recordings for promotional or commercial use. While attending a Niko Works Workshop, the participant agrees to allow his/her likeness to be used by Niko Works without compensation to the participant. If the participant prefers that his/her likeness not be used, he/she must notify us in writing prior to departure of the trip. Copyright in all photographs, video, and related materials created by the participant (“tour Materials”) shall belong to the participant upon creation.
Infectious Disease Outbreak: Any workshop adversely affected by an infectious disease outbreak, such as N1H1 (swine flu), COVID-19 (novel coronavirus), or any other epidemic or pandemic ordered by the CDC (Centers for Disease Control and Prevention), or the WHO (World Health Organization), may be postponed and rescheduled to a future date. As a small business in the travel sector, we are not in a position to provide mass guest refunds. Unfortunately, we cannot make any exceptions to our ‘no refund policy’ related to infectious disease outbreaks. We understand your concerns, and safety is our first priority.
