Standard Cancellation Policy
If you cancel or cannot take your tour as a consequence of force majeure.
Force Majeure includes impersonal events such as war, civil insurrection, strikes, volcanoes, extreme weather, earthquake or natural disaster that makes it dangerous or impossible to safely undertake the tour. The determination of what constitutes ‘Force Majeure’ is at the discretion of Sarah’s Tours.
For cancellation due to any other reasons (such as illness, change of personal circumstances), the date on which the request to cancel is received by Sarah’s Tours will determine the refund due as follows:
If you cancel 60 days or more before the start of the tour: 10% cancellation fee. We will refund 90% of the amount paid less any non-recoverable upfront costs incurred by Sarah’s Tours on your behalf. These upfront costs represent out of pocket expenses of Sarah’s Tours for tickets, transportation deposits and other non-recoverable tour expenses. Please send a message to Sarah’s Tours to find out what, if any, these costs are.
If you cancel 59 to 30 days before the start of the tour: 30% cancellation fee. If you have paid for your tour in full, we will issue a refund of 70%. If you paid only a deposit we will refund only the amount paid in excess of 30% of the tour price.
If you cancel less than 30 days before the start of the tour: 50% cancellation fee.
In some cases, the Tour Guide may cancel a tour due to weather or other circumstance. In the event that the Tour Guide cancels the tour, you may choose between a rescheduling of the tour, a full refund of all amount paid OR a credit towards an alternative tour. If you choose to accept credit, the difference in the cost of the alternative tour will be refunded or paid by you as applicable.
24 HOUR ANY REASON cancellation option
If you cancel less than 24 hours before the tour’s start time there will be a 100% cancellation fee.
