In any case we cancel a tour, client will get 100% reimbursement.
Once we receive the cancellation request from the traveler, we will verify that the cancellation complies with our Cancellation policy required for a refund. If compliant, we will activate the refund option in our reservation system as soon as possible, in order to issue a 100% refund. The time frame for the traveler to receive the amount back in his/her bank account depends entirely on the payment provider, which may vary from one booking to another.
We have an extension to our standard cancellation and refund policies, through the Enhanced Refund Terms option. At the time of purchase, customers can select Enhanced Refund Terms as an optional extra, which will add 8% of the booking value to the customer’s total. If a client is unable to attend their booking due to a circumstance included in the Enhanced Refund Conditions, the client may request a 100% refund at any time up to the (first) date of the tour/activity, or up to 60 days thereafter, directly through Protect Group.
Remember, this option is only available if full payment is collected from clients at the time of booking, otherwise clients are offered the option to upgrade their refund conditions or to rebook using our standard refund terms and cancellation policy.
