Our group cancellation policy: You must cancel at least 14 days prior to your trip in order to receive a complete refund minus 10% processing fee. You may deduct from the number of participants up to 1 week before your trip without a charge. If you cancel the group trip completely with less than 2 week’s notice but not less than 48 hours, you will be charged for your trip and sent a 50% off rain check which is good for 1 year. You may add to or subtract from the number of participants up to 2 days before your trip providing we can accommodate them and/or the trip isn’t a guided trip, (see above policy). If you deduct from the number of participants with LESS than 1 week’s notice, but not less than 2 days you will be responsible for a $10.00 p.p. charge. If you make your reservation for a certain number of people and some of them do not show up, you will be charged for the no-show people who didn’t come.
For example: If you make a reservation for 24 or less people. You cancel 5 people 8 days before your trip – there is no charge. You cancel 5 people 6 days before your trip – there is a $50.00 + tax charge. If you are a group and your final reservation number is 20 people and 3 do not show up the day of your trip, you will be charged the full non-group rate amounts for their trips and you will be responsible for a $5.00 p.p. charge for the remaining 17 people (the net difference of the non-group rate). Bottom line, don’t book until you know exactly your group size.
