Booking Conditions For Expeditions
All our expeditions require a minimum of 4 people booked on it in order it to run. In the event that there are insufficient numbers booked on to your chosen expedition date, you will be given the option to transfer your booking to another date at no additional cost or be given a full refund.
You can secure your place by paying a deposit using our online store. Full payment is due 8 weeks before the start of your expedition (online deposits will change to full price if it is within 8 weeks of departure). Your final balance can be paid by bank transfer – we’ll let you know the details.
If you can no longer make your expedition we will do our best to move your booking to another date. If you decide to cancel your booking then the following charges will apply. More than 56 days prior to the start date – 10%, 28 to 56 days 40%, 14 to 27 days 60%, 7 to 13 days 75%. Anything less than 7 days and full payment will be retained.
If we have to cancel your booking for any reason we will try to find and alternative date for you, if this is not possible then a full refund will be issued. Whilst every attempt is made to ensure that expeditions actually run, we reserve the right to vary or cancel any course if this should become necessary due to dangerous or unsuitable conditions beyond our control.
