However if you have to cancel due to documented injury or illness , the reservation deposit will be refunded if and only if there is a suitable replacement available.

  • For cancellations later than 3 months before the trip. If there is a suitable replacement available, there will be a $100 cancellation penalty and the balance of your payments will be refunded. If no suitable replacement is available, no refund will be given.
