Please type the security word above in lowercase:

This is necessary to try to combat spam use of this form.

To finalize securing a space on a trip, you will need to have an orientation discussion with a program representative and a deposit will be needed.

After submitting this form, one of our program guides will contact you to discuss trip details and review payment options.

I have read and agree to the following cancellation policies listed below.


 

Cancellation Policies

 

  • Your non-refundable deposit makes it possible to hold a place for you on the trip.
  • Half the trip cost is due 90 days prior to departure.
  • The balance of the trip cost is due no later than 60 days before departure.

Cancellations

If you cancel your reservation for any reason your deposit is non-refundable. The following cancellation schedule outlines cancellation fees for all balances paid not including deposit. (computed as of date of our actual receipt of written cancellation notice):

More than 90 days  Deposit only
61-90 days  $500.00 in addition to deposit
31-60 days 50% of land cost & unrecoverable air
Less than 30 days  100% of land cost & unrecoverable air

Participants are responsible for being in sufficiently good health and condition to undertake the trip. Once a trip has started, refunds will not be made for missed arrangements for any reason whatsoever. We highly recommend trip cancellation insurance.

Canceled Trips

Still Water Travel reserves the right to cancel any trip prior to departure for any reason whatsoever, including insufficient sign-up or logistical problems that will impede trip operations. The refund of all payments received shall release Still Water Travel from any further liability. Still Water Travel is not responsible for non recoverable expenses incurred by trip members in preparing for a canceled trip, such as non-refundable advance purchase air tickets, visa fees, equipment, etc., nor for any necessary additional arrangements should the applicant have embarked prior to the group's departure date.

We highly recommend that you purchase trip cancellation insurance that covers the full land and air cost of your trip.  If we are forced to cancel the trip for reasons within our control, you will be entitled to a full refund of all payments made toward the trip.  The low cost Travel Insurance is meant to protect you in case you must, for any reason, cancel your participation in the trip or if Still Water Travel is forced to cancel the trip due to circumstances beyond our control. Any cancellation on your behalf during the trip will not be entitled to any refund of payments made.

Items not included in trip costs:

Medical expenses, costs of hospitalization or evacuation from remote areas, laundry, airport departure taxes not included on your ticket, accommodations en route to base cities, visas, airfares, gratuities, and insurance. If a trip must be extended or an itinerary modified due to weather, road conditions, lack of transportation, political or civil disputes, medical emergency or other causes beyond our control, all associated costs including any non-recoverable costs are not included in the trip rates or refunds. You must obtain trip cancellation insurance to cover these costs.

Limitations of liability

In many cases, suppliers of tour services are independent contractors to Still Water Travel, not its employees. For example, we use independent ground operators, tour guides, hotels, transportation companies, drivers, airlines, and other suppliers. Because we do not own, operate, manage, control, or supervise these entities, we cannot be liable for any acts or omissions, including any negligence, gross negligence, or reckless or willful acts, on their part. Still Water Travel, its owners, agents, and employees assume no responsibility for any injury, loss, damage, delay, or death to person or property arising from the negligent or willful act or failure to act of any person who is to or does provide goods or services for this trip or for the action or inaction of any other third party. Without limitation, Still Water Travel is not responsible for acts of God, equipment failures, vehicle accidents, illness from food or otherwise, detention, assaults, theft or criminal activity, annoyance, delays, quarantine, strikes, failure of any means of conveyance to arrive or depart as scheduled, civil disturbances, terrorism, government restrictions or regulations, and discrepancies or changes in transit or hotel services over which it has no control. Reasonable changes in the itinerary may be made where deemed advisable for the comfort and well being of the passengers. The right is reserved to substitute hotels, alter the itinerary, and reverse the order of places to be visited. You will be informed of any necessary changes in a timely fashion.

On advancement of deposit to Still Water Travel, the depositor therefore agrees to be bound by the above recited terms and conditions. These may be partial conditions. Your participation is contingent on the full list of terms specified in the Planning Guide sent to you after placing a deposit on your program.
