Cancellation Policy for Treks and Small Tours

Notification of cancellation must be made in writing to [email protected] If you wish to cancel within twelve weeks of your tour start date, further payment is needed as follows:

If you cancel 12 weeks or additional days before the trek departure: Cancellation fees equal the number of your deposit.

12 to 8 weeks before the trek departure: 60% of the whole tour price is due.

8 weeks to 5 days before departure: 80% of the whole tour price is due.

5 days to 48 hours: 90% of the whole tour price is due.

48 hours or less before departure: 100% of the whole price is due.

We charge these fees because there are a great deal of expenses that True Mountain Traveler pays to set up these tours. Unfortunately, there are no exceptions. We would be happy to supply a letter for your insurance company to help recover some of the cost.
