CANCELLATIONS AND REFUNDS

 

 

When you make your booking you must pay a deposit per person to secure your place.

 

Places will no longer be held unless a deposit has been received.

 

You must pay the balance of the cost of the trip no later than 12 weeks prior to the departure date.  If the deposit or balance are not paid on time, we reserve the right to reallocate your place and you will lose your deposit.

 

If you need to cancel outside of the 12 week period then please call me and I will be as accommodating as possible, including issuing you a refund or a credit toward a future trip where possible (refunded only if I can fill your place).

 

If you cancel under 12 weeks from the departure date you are not eligable for a refund, I understand that situations arise however and I will be as helpful as I can in arranging an alternative trip at a discount.

 

If a trip is cancelled by me for whatever circumstances you will receive a full refund.
