Cancellation by Mountain Expeditions

In the unlikely event that we have to cancel a trip/booking, you will be entitled to a full refund. We reserve the right to cancel any trip for the but not limited to the following reasons:

  • Trip does not meet minimum group numbers
  • Where circumstances beyond our reasonable control arise, for example, war, civil or political unrest, terrorism, extreme weather conditions or technical problems arise with transport

If this is the case no less than 60 days before the start of the trip you will be offered an alternative date or equivalent trip. If this is not acceptable to you we will refund all payments made to us in respect of your trip. We will not offer any refunds with respect to insurance premiums you may have taken out with any third parties. Before requesting or accepting a refund from Mountain Expeditions, you should utilise your insurance cover.

NB. We strongly advise you to take out adequate travel insurance as soon as you have booked onto a trip. This should be inline with our Terms and Conditions and cover cancelation.

If Mountain Expeditions requires a lesser sum than set out in above to cover its reasonable costs and losses caused by the cancellation, we may at our discretion charge you that lesser sum.

Mountain Expeditions shall take all reasonable steps to keep its costs and losses to a minimum.
