Cancellation, Changes & Refund Policy

TG Travel Group LLC small group tours are unique and require longer lead times and much earlier commitments and payments from us to our service providers, therefore we have found it necessary to have cancellation policies that differ from other tour companies. This policy will be at the bottom of your deposit invoice.

If you must cancel: For documentation purposes all tour cancellations or change request must be submitted in writing. Travel arrangement cancellation and changes are subject to cancellation and change penalties as noted on your invoice/itinerary. No refunds will be made for unused services once travel has commenced.

Cancellations will be subject to the following cancellation fees applied per person, per booking:

Deposit – Nonrefundable

Final Payment – Because each tour is custom designed, with special arrangements and access and because we frequently travel to very remote areas as well as to places with limited or no tourist infrastructure, our payment schedule to our providers are different in almost every case. As a result our cancellation policy will by necessity be different for each tour.

Itinerary Changes
Itineraries are subject to modification and changes by TG Travel Group LLC or its designated tour operator. Every reasonable effort will be made to operate programs as planned, but alterations may unavoidably occur after final itineraries are provided.

TG Travel Group LLC reserves the right to cancel any tour which does not meet the minimum requirement of travelers stated to guarantee a tour departure. In this event it is possible for the trip to depart if those signed up agree to an additional charge to enable operation of the tour at a lower number. If it becomes necessary to cancel a trip collected payments will be refunded to participants.

Trip Insurance
All travel arrangements are subject to cancellation and change penalties and are nonrefundable near the departure date as stated on your invoice/itinerary in the cancellation/change policy. You must refer to your trip insurance policy for information regarding your coverage which pertains to trip cancellation or changes per your tour arrangements.

We require trip insurance be obtained for all tours so your trip investment is protected in the event of an unforeseen event. As a courtesy we can process it directly at TG Travel Group LLC or if purchased independently a proof of policy must be provided including: Company name, Policy # & Outside USA telephone number.

NOTE: Custom tours which require an underwriter may need to meet special travel insurance. Requirements where in this case travel insurance needs to be purchased directly from: TG TRAVEL GROUP LLC for your protection.
