Cancellations and Refunds
All requests for cancellations must be received in writing. Upon Adventure Canada receiving a written notice of cancellation at least 120 days prior to the scheduled date of departure, the passenger shall receive a full refund of its tour fees, less an administrative penalty of $500 per person. If a written notice of cancellation is received by Adventure Canada between 91 and 120 days prior to the scheduled date of departure, the passenger shall receive a refund of 35% of its tour fees. Please note that within the 90-day limit, all fees, deposits and tariffs received by Adventure Canada are forfeited. For these and other reasons mentioned below, passengers are strongly advised to obtain trip cancellation insurance. No refunds shall be made to passengers who do not participate in any part of, or otherwise do not complete, the tour for any reason whatsoever.
In the event of a delay, passengers will be responsible for all costs and expenses associated therewith, including, without limitation, any additional food, lodging or transportation costs resulting from such delay. We recommend you purchase refundable air tickets.
Baggage is solely at the passenger’s risk and expense. Baggage is limited to a maximum weight of 20 KG in most cases. Also, airline luggage allowance is typically two pieces per passenger and one piece of carry-on luggage, subject to weight restrictions, but please check with your airline for current standards. Excess baggage is not permitted on charter flights. Any excess baggage charges for commercial flights are the responsibility of the passenger.
Land-Based Group Size and Trip Costs
In keeping with our philosophy of small group travel, most of our land based programs operate with 10 - 30 participants. If we do not get the required number of people and cancel a tour, you will be notified as soon as possible. In the event of a cancellation, all deposits and tariffs paid will be returned to the passenger in full with no further obligation on the part of Adventure Canada (AC), Eagle-Eye Tours (EE), and The Human Nature Company (HNC). Single rooms, if available, will be provided on request for an additional fee as outlined in program literature. For participants travelling alone, but wishing to share, AC will arrange for a room if possible. If a roommate is not available, a single supplement will be charged.
Due to the nature of the tour in which the passenger will be participating, passengers must have in place prior to departure comprehensive insurance coverage including without limitation medical, emergency evacuation, trip cancellation and interruption, accident and baggage insurance. Emergency medical and evacuation coverage is mandatory for trip participation and policy documentation will be required. Any losses sustained by the undersigned passenger as a result of its failing to obtain proper insurance coverage shall be the sole responsibility of the passenger. For full coverage passengers are recommended to obtain insurance at the time of deposit.
