I'm booked on the trip, but now I can't go! What do I do?

Oh no! Well no worries, if you can let us know prior to one month of your expedition date then we will be able to give you a refund of your deposit less a 2,500 PHP cancellation fee/person.

Within one month of your expedition date the deposit is non-refundable.

How does COVID-19 affect my trip?

Due to the current COVID-19 global pandemic we have made some changes to our booking policy. Currently you can reserve your spot without a deposit or any pre-payment. Once the trip is within 60 days we will send you a link to pay your deposit (50% of the full fee).

If something happens within those 60 days we will offer you a complimentary rebooking option.

If you wish to cancel the booking within those 60 days, rather than have the rebooking option, then you will be able to receive 75% of your deposit back.

The 25% is kept to cover our transaction fees that we have to pay for the refund/booking and other business costs related to your booking.

If you are a guest whose trip has already been affected by COVID-19 then we should already be in touch with you, if not please contact us :)
