Cancellation policies:

Cancellation charges reflect the many expenses Adventures in Good Company cannot recover if you cancel, even if you must do so due to illness, injury, or personal emergencies. These fees are not meant to be punitive. The charges made reflect the expenses Adventures in Good Company has incurred in administering your reservation and planning for your participation. Please understand that once you’ve signed up, we lose the right to sell your reserved space to other individuals or groups. We recognize that the majority of those who cancel their reservations do so out of necessity. Please note that we do not make any refunds for any unused portion of your trip, not arriving, arriving late, or leaving the trip early.

To qualify for any refunds, we must receive notification in writing, by email or mail to: Adventures in Good Company, 5913 Brackenridge Ave, Baltimore, MD 21212. Cancellation date is the date the notice is received by Adventures in Good Company in writing.

NOTE: Our cancellation policies changed on May 25, 2017 and apply to all 2018 trips.

Exceptions to this policy cannot be made for any reason.

In the unfortunate event that you must cancel your trip, your refund will be determined according to the following formula:

Days prior to departure:

International Domestic Refund
120 + days 90+ days All but $50
120 - 60 days 90 - 45 days 50% of trip fee
59 days or less 44 days or less No refund

Trip fees may be transferred from one person to another if, in the opinion of the Adventures in Good Company staff, it is determined that the other person is in the proper physical condition to participate in the trip activity. Adventures in Good Company reserves the right to cancel or alter a trip due to unforeseen weather, unsafe conditions, low registrations or other circumstances. On the rare occasion when Adventures in Good Company must cancel a trip, all payments received to date will be refunded, including the non-refundable portion of your deposit. Adventures in Good Company is not responsible for expenses incurred in preparation for any canceled trips, including airplane tickets.
