Reservation and Cancellation Policy — Alaska Guide Collective
A deposit of $1000 (or payment in full if the trip price is less than $1000) per person is required to reserve a trip. The remaining balance is due 60 days prior to the start of the trip. Reservations made within 60 days of the trip starting date require payment in full. If the participant cancels a reservation earlier than 60 days prior to the starting date, the deposit will be refunded, minus a $100 administration fee. If the participant cancels within 59-31 days of the starting date, 50% of the trip balance will be refunded. If cancellation is made within 30-0 days of the trip starting date, there will be no refund of any costs. Alaska Guide Collective recommends cancellation insurance available through Travel Guard.
Trip Cancellations or Delays
Alaska Guide Collective reserves the right to cancel or change the itinerary of a trip. In the event that Alaska Guide Collective cancels your trip and you are unable to participate, your total balance will be refunded. Occasionally, weather or other factors may cause delays or make completing a trip impossible. In these circumstances, there will be no refund of fees. Alaska Guide Collective is not responsible for any additional costs (e.g. airline flight changes, additional hotel nights, etc.) associated with trip delays or itinerary changes due to weather or other factors.
Trip insurance is recommended for all trips. Travel Guard is a popular provider and covers trip cancellation and delay, emergency evacuation, baggage protection and medical protection. Get the Adventure Sports Coverage plan on My Travel Guard. Call them anytime at 1-800-826-4919 for a quote. Get the Optional Cancel for Any Reason provision. Plans vary state by state. Evacuation coverage with Travel Guard is not as reliable as Global Rescue through the American Alpine Club (see below). Another good option is Travelex Travel Select protection plan, with the Adventure Plus Pak optional upgrade.
Accidents can happen. Rescue is often not free and can be expensive. Rescue insurance is recommended for Alaska trips and required for all foreign trips. Here are several options:
Global Rescue is a good deal. Available with American Alpine Club membership. Membership for 29 or younger costs $40 per year, $75 for age 30-64 and $50 for over 65. Each member gets $5,000 toward rescue and evacuation coverage. AAC members can upgrade to full Global Rescue membership at a 5% discount for various membership plans.
Travel Guard Adventure Sports Coverage includes emergency rescue insurance, although not as reliable as Global Rescue.
