Montona tours undertakes not to use personal data of passengers except for the purpose of realizing contracted trips. The exception to the provision of personal data to third parties refers to the contracting of insurance policies. If the traveler takes out an insurance policy, then his personal data will be forwarded to the insurance company.

In case of disputed situations, the Travel Contractor or the Traveler and the Travel Organizer undertake to try to resolve them amicably. If it is determined that there is no possibility of a peaceful resolution of the disputed issue, the case will be referred to the competent court in Pazin.
