  • By booking a tour you acknowledge, agree, and accept to be bound by any additional terms as detailed in the tour’s description at the moment of performing the booking. These additional terms may make tours dependent on weather conditions, and may postpone the commencement of the tour until the additional conditions are fulfilled (e.g. surfing classes for beginners may not be conducted on days of big/dangerous waves; rains may render a tour or activity impossible; so they would be postponed to be performed as soon as possible).

If you have conducted any fraudulent activity, we and our tour operators reserve the right to take any necessary legal action and you may be liable for monetary losses to us and our tour operators, including litigation costs and damages. To contest the cancellation of a booking or freezing or closure of an account, please contact us.


Midstay shall charge 100% of the tour to the user upon booking. This sum shall be displayed before check-out. The user shall not need to pay any additional sums of money for the booked tour.

We accept the following methods of payment: credit cards, debit cards, and popular payment methods around the world.

As may be detailed in the tour description, there may be additional expenses that the user may have to afford outside of the tour price. If the tour operator were to charge additional expenses not described in the tour description, the user shall be entitled to reject those expenses. In order to do so, communication of any such situation is required immediately to Midstay.

When a booking is performed for more than one person, payment shall be considered as performed on behalf of the persons named in the booking and shall imply authorization on their behalf to do so.

You acknowledge that, except as provided below with respect to tax obligations on the amount we retain for our services, we do not collect taxes for remittance to applicable taxing authorities. The tour operators invoice us for certain charges, including, where appropriate, tax amounts. The tour operators are responsible for remitting the applicable taxes to the applicable taxing jurisdictions. The tax recovery charges that we charge you on prepaid bookings represent the estimated taxes (e.g. service tax, value-added tax, etc) that we pay to the tour operators for taxes. Taxability and the appropriate tax rate vary depending on the location. The actual tax amounts paid by us to the tour operators may vary from the tax recovery charge amounts, depending upon the rates, taxability, etc. 

You acknowledge that authorities in certain countries may impose additional sales, use and/or local taxes, which have to be paid locally. You are solely responsible for paying such additional taxes.

The possibility of performing a change to your booking shall depend on the availability of the tour operator for the requested dates. Midstay does not guarantee the success of change requests. We are, however, committed to performing our best endeavors to enable modification requests.

Tour operators may perform changes to tour dates, prices, inclusions, coverage, age requirements, etc. We, therefore, reserve the right to change or substitute the tour requirements or cancel the tour booked through our website, at any time and for any reason, before a booking is performed. Once a booking is performed, the tour operator may still perform changes to tour dates, age requirements, or other items not affecting the price of the booked tour. If this were to occur, we shall make every reasonable effort to amend or re-issue the booking to the users’ satisfaction. If the possibilities offered were not satisfactory, the users shall be entitled to a full refund of the sums paid. This payment shall be final and shall be considered as payment settling any further possibility of a claim for direct or indirect damages.

These terms are applicable to single, or group bookings alike.
