Because of the extensive planning and preparation that goes into our multi-day tours, the high demand for daytours, and because many of our tours are booked fairly well in advance, there are significant, but reasonable fees associated with cancellation and rescheduling, especially the closer to the tour date that it occurs. By purchasing a tour with DST, I accept the cancellation/rescheduling schedule below and agree to pay accordingly in such an event. I also agree to pay a 50% deposit for daytours, and approximately a 33% deposit for multi-day tours at the time of booking.
A. Daytours and Scheduled Overnights
CANCELLATION REFUND AS A PERCENTAGE OF TOTAL PRICE, NOT JUST THE DEPOSIT.
|30+ days til TD||85%|
|10-30 days til TD||75%|
|48hrs -10 days til TD||65%|
|Less than 48 hrs/NO SHOW||0%|
NOTE: IF YOU ARE A NO SHOW/ < 48HRS, YOUR CARD WILL BE CHARGED THE ADDITIONAL 50% TO COMPLETE THE FULL PAYMENT. IT IS A COMPLETE LOSS OF THE FULL COST OF THE TOUR. Daytours can be rescheduled given availability. If no availability cancellation policy applies.
B. Multi-day Tours
|Cancellation Fee||Rescheduling Fee|
|90+ days til TD||100||no charge|
|60-90 days til TD||20% of tour price||100|
|-30-60 days til TD||33% (deposit) of tour price||200|
|7-30 days til TD||40% of tour price||250|
|48hrs -7days til TD||50% of tour price||300|
|Less than 48 hrs||100% of tour price||100% of tour price|
We strongly recommend that you purchase travel insurance on D.S.T. expeditions especially if your circumstances dictate it (i.e. sick family members, unpredictable job requirements, hurricane season, etc.). We will not deviate from this policy for any reason.
A Word on Weather
Although it very rarely happens, we reserve the right to cancel or reroute tours up until the last minute due to weather, safety, or other uncontrollable circumstances. In this case we will try to reschedule, give rainchecks, agree on another more accessible destination, or if necessary give a full refund. Cancellations are slightly more likely in Winter.
