Cancellations

If you cancel:

Cancellations made at least 60 days prior to trip’s starting date receive a full refund, less the deposit.

Cancellations made 30-59 days prior to the trip’s starting date will receive a 50% refund, less the deposit.

Cancellations made 15-29 days prior to the trip’s starting date will receive a 25% refund, less the deposit.

Cancellations made 14 days prior to trip’s starting date, or after the trip has begun, will not receive a refund.

Refunds will be issued promptly via physical or electronic check.

If we postpone or cancel, you can:

A. Transfer to another trip during the current season, subject to availability and appropriateness. Cost differences will be balanced out with either an additional payment (by you) or a refund (from me).

B. Receive a voucher for the following season. If the trip is cancelled less than 60 days prior to the trip’s starting date, the voucher amount will be equal to your payments; if more than 60 days, it will be equal to your deposit, and payments in excess of your deposit will be refunded fully.

C. Receive a refund, equal to 25 percent of your deposit plus 100 percent of your payments in excess of the deposit. The non-refunded share of your deposit will cover expenses already incurred on your behalf while planning and preparing for your trip.

Travel insurance

Every year, clients must cancel due to personal injury or illness, unexpected scheduling conflicts, the health or death of loved ones, job changes, and other reasons. Cancellations are a lose-lose-lose situation: for you, for me, and for the group (which will miss out on your wonderfulness).

I strongly encourage that you purchase travel insurance, especially if you have joined one of the longer trips and/or if you must fly to the trip location. Individual policies can be purchased directly from TravelGuard and from other travel insurance companies.
