Cancellations & refunds

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 in the form of a check.

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.
