Although our trips and the region are safe we still recommend purchasing travel insurance.
Travel Insurance: We recommend that you take out suitable travel insurance as it typically covers you when you have to cancel a trip due to an illness or injury, or sometimes even work-related reasons, or family medical reasons. Coverages can include reimbursement for money paid to airlines, Esenko Workshops, and other travel providers. It’s your choice to purchase this insurance, or not.
Medical Insurance: covers you for medical treatment, hospitalization, doctor’s visits and more, in countries where your home-based medical insurance will not cover you. We strongly urge you to obtain this insurance for any workshop that is outside of your home country, because your existing medical insurance will not cover you. You will be surprised at how little it can cost for lots of coverage.
Any claim has to be communicated to our company during the stay or within a maximum of 15 days after end of arrangement with the company. No claim will be accepted afterwards. All claims should be sent in written form to the company.
We respect your privacy and your personal information will be used only for the correspondence with you and for the needs of the tour.
Negotiation is considered a general method of solving problems or discrepancies concerning the fulfillment of the contract. In case that the results of such negotiations are not found satisfactory by either of the parties, courts in Slovenia are considered the courts of appeal and arbitration.
You understand that we rely upon third party tour organizers, transportation providers, hotel operators and food providers to provide the services associated with the Workshops.

We cannot control the actions of such third-parties and do not assume responsibility for unanticipated events that may occur, including, without limitation, travel delays, lost luggage, cancellations, overbooking, and other reservation errors. You should build some flexibility into your schedule in case we need to extend the length of the Workshop or make other reasonable scheduling changes to accommodate unanticipated events such as travel delays, lost luggage, cancellations, overbooking and other reservation errors. You will not be entitled to a refund in the event of unanticipated events requiring scheduling changes. You further agree to hold us harmless from and against any liability for injury, death, damage, loss, accident, delay or irregularity that might occur in connection with any services provided by third parties.
