The deposit is $300 for trips in the United States and $400 for International trips.
The total trip balance is due 90 days prior to departure for domestic trips and 120 days prior to departure for international trips.
Payments may be made with most major credit cards or bank debit cards. Please note that as of January 19, 2022, we have updated Booking Terms & Conditions and are no longer able to accept eCheck or ACH payments.
The total trip price includes the deposit and all prices are in USD. Prices may change during the course of the year and most often the best price will be for those who book early. Prices cover land costs only; they do not include airfare to and from the trip nor any required travel documentation, such as passports or visas.
If payment in full has not been received by the due date, the outstanding balance will be charged directly to the payment method on file from the deposit, unless otherwise instructed. If final payment cannot be processed within 2 days of the payment deadline, AGC reserves the right to treat your booking as canceled and the deposit and any other payments will be forfeited.
Cancellation and Transfer Policies:
In the unfortunate event that you must cancel your trip in the days prior to departure, your cancellation fee will be determined according to the terms outlined in the chart below:
|International||Domestic (U.S.)||Cancellation Fee|
|120 + days||90+ days||50% of the deposit*|
|120 - 60 days||90 - 45 days||50% of trip cost**|
|59 days or less||44 days or less||100% of trip cost, no refund|
**If you register after the final payment deadline, the entire amount is due within 2 days of booking and the deposit is NON-REFUNDABLE.
Transfers to another trip are only allowed before the final payment deadline. You may transfer one time to another scheduled departure without a fee, after which time the standard cancellation fees apply. All additional transfers from the original booking are subject to the normal cancellation policy. When transferring to a new trip, the participant is responsible for any differences in the deposit and/or trip costs.
For bookings made prior to January 19, 2022, the prior Terms will apply.
Now more than ever, we recommend getting travel insurance for your next adventure. We partner with Travelex, which offers cancellation and trip interruption coverage if an insured plan holder or her companion falls ill with COVID-19 during the coverage period or has to be quarantined. Coverage may also be granted if an insured traveler must take care of a family member who has become seriously ill from COVID-19, or must take over daily work management if a business partner falls ill with the disease. The full coverage terms and details, including limitations and exclusions, are contained in the insurance policy. Still not sure you need travel protection? Consider these scenarios to help you decide.
