TIMS monitors their personal data, and any data relating to the trek, the trekking region and the trekking route. TNT organises the respective TIMS cards.

6. Changes in Itinerary / Booking
Where alterations to any tour itinerary are concerned, prior notice is requested. The clients are therefore advised to keep in touch with TNT. However, the clients may occasionally be obliged to discontinue their journey en route under certain circumstances, for instance, bad weather, etc..

TNT aims to fulfill the booked trip to complete satisfaction with special personal and individual services.  In case of shortage in the availability of hotels, domestic flights or other means of transportation, TNT reserves the right to changes without prior notice.  In these cases, TNT informs the clients immediately.
