A non-refundable deposit of 30% of the trip fee is required to hold your reservation. The balance of the fee is due 60 days prior to commencement date of the trip.
Cancellation By You
As a significant portion of trip costs is committed well in advance of each trip, there is no refund within 60 days of the departure date of your registered trip . If final payment is not received by 60 days prior to the departure date of your registered trip, Coastal Bliss Adventures reserves the right to treat the reservation as cancelled. Both deposit [less a $50 administrative fee], and full balance of payment will be refunded if we can replace your spot with another participant after all other spots have been filled. Any non-refundable moneys from third party deposits will be deducted from this refund. Cancellation notice must be received in writing.
No one may depart on a trip unless all payments and required documents are received by Coastal Bliss Adventures Ltd by the published deadline. Our guides rely on having information before their trips leave to ensure that they can plan for your needs. If you fail to provide accurate information that may affect the safety or ability of others to complete the trip, you may be denied departure, or you may be evacuated. No refund is available if incomplete or inaccurate information prevents you from completing the trip.
Due to the nature of operating in the wilderness and international destinations, prices are subject to change [rare]. Where necessary to change a price, we will try to provide as much notice as possible, and offer you the choice of another trip, or to cancel, with full refund.
Our prices are quoted in Canadian dollars. If you choose to pay by credit card, we process payment in Canadian funds. Your credit card company will assign an amount based on their current exchange rate.
Cancellation By Coastal Bliss
Coastal Bliss Adventures reserves the right to alter itineraries or cancel any trip prior to departure for any reason whatsoever, including insufficient booking levels or logistical problems that may impede trip operations. A trip cancellation due to insufficient booking levels will generally occur at least 30 days prior to departure. Coastal Bliss Adventures is not responsible for expenses incurred by trip members in preparing for the trip (i.e. non refundable airline tickets, visa fees, equipment, etc.).
Due to the inherent risks involved in wilderness travel all participants are required to sign a standard liability release.
As we strictly enforce our cancellation policy, we very strongly recommend that you purchase travel insurance. Generally, it reimburses you for non-refundable land and air costs should you have to cancel the trip due to personal or family illness.
Before purchasing insurance, check with your present insurance provider and the credit card agreement for the card that you will be purchasing your tour with, as you may already be covered. Evacuation costs, should they arise, are your responsibility. National Parks provide evacuation for injured or sick persons from Park to road. Transfers to hospital by ambulance are not covered by Park fee. In Provincial Parks and some other remote areas, it can be quite a significant cost, should you need evacuating. Therefore, we highly recommend that you to have coverage in place with a provider of your choosing. For British Columbia residence, I have found that BCAA has good coverage, at a reasonable price, but it is always worth shopping around to find one that works for you.
