Cancellation and refund policy

Typically, these tours are nonrefundable once deposit or final payment is made. Because this ship is chartered, I am able to change names without penalty. If the event is sold out, I should be able to replace any cancelling travelers with interested parties from the waitlist. If this is done, a complete refund will be provided for the cruise portion. In the event the cruise is not sold out, I strongly suggest purchasing cancellation insurance. Links are provided below to a couple companies that I have had success with in the past.

Typically, the more time we have to work with a situation, the more flexibility we have. If the charter is sold out and a waiting list is in place, there should be no problem accommodating a refund.

Trip cancellation insurance

The decision to invest in cancellation insurance is a personal one. The costs have risen dramatically over the past 10 years to the point that I can no longer justify selling it. There are many travelers who would never consider making a commitment like this without some assurance that they could receive a portion of the investment returned to them should cancellation become necessary.

The cost of travel insurance ranges between 6% and 10% of the total price of your travel costs. Insurance costs increase with the age of the traveler.

You will be asked to list the full costs of your travel program. This includes air fare, hotel, ground transportation, and the cruise. You need only insure for funds that are paid in advance. If you have a pre-existing medical condition, some policies will cover for this if you purchase your policy immediately after making your first deposit. There are currently two companies that I can recommend for travel insurance. Rates are generally within a few dollars of each other. I specifically leave others off this list due to past claim problems. CSA Travel Protection and Travelex are two companies that have worked well in the past.
