We strive to provide travellers everywhere with reliable, comprehensive and independent travel information.
Luxury Backpackers Ltd also provides expert, bespoke travel advice, planning and guidance to clients in return for a service fee. Luxury Backpackers Ltd is completely independent, enabling it to fairly recommend suppliers or operators offering the best products (flights, accommodation, tours etc) to fit the planned itinerary, for the client to book with directly. Please note there is no guarantee that the flights or properties will still be available when the booking is made. Luxury Backpackers Ltd endeavours at all times to provide a quality service in a friendly and professional manner. Luxury Backpackers Ltd recognises the faith and trust placed by its clients and will do its utmost to plan the perfect trip according to clients' requirements.
Luxury Backpackers Ltd only recommends the use of reputable companies. In the UK suppliers will be fully covered by the appropriate bonding (ATOL, ABTA etc), ensuring that any money paid to those companies is protected.
All travel involves an element of risk. Clients may travel to developing countries off the beaten track, where transportation, communication and healthcare standards are different to what clients may be used to in their home country. Luxury Backpackers Ltd will endeavour to inform its clients of the official UK Foreign Office travel advice regarding the safety or otherwise of travelling to certain countries, but cannot be held responsible or liable for any difficulties experienced by its clients during their trip. It is the client's responsibility to take out adequate travel insurance to cover any eventuality.
The liability of Luxury Backpackers Ltd is restricted solely to the provision of detailed travel advice and itineraries (in the case of Silver and Gold Backpacks only). If Luxury Backpackers Ltd undertakes the booking on behalf of the client, all contracts for travel (flights, accommodation, tours, car-rental etc) are made directly between the client and the selected supplier and are governed by any further terms and conditions issued by those providers. Clients accept the risks of travel and assume full responsibility for any loss, injury, death or damage to them, their family or dependents arising in connection to their trip.

Luxury Backpackers Ltd strongly recommends all clients take out adequate travel insurance, both to cover them during their trip as well as for cancellations.
