 DEPOSITS/CANCELLATION POLICY AND TRIP INSURANCE
Belize Adventure for Women

Trip Cost:
10-13 guests: $3075   14-19 guests: $2725

CANCELLATION POLICY
Due to the complexity of arranging foreign programs the following cancellation policy is required. If cancellations are made before September 13th, 2017 a full refund will be granted.

If Cancellations are made after September 13th and
more than 120 days prior to the starting date of the program, you will be granted a full refund minus a $200 non-refundable processing fee.

 

No refunds are given when cancellations are made less than 120 days prior to the starting date.

TRIP INSURANCE

Blue Water Ventures (BWV) requires that participants purchase Travel
Insurance for all international trip destinations. Travel Insurance is a very affordable tool to protect your investment.

Over the years, I've had several clients who have used their travel insurance and they were fully refunded for both the flight and cost of the trip. On the flip side, I've had people lose the full value of a trip because a medical situation developed or an unexpected family emergency happened back home such as an ailing family member.

Travel insurance will also cover medical evacuations and expenses during a trip, a cost that we can not cover for you. Travel insurance would cover the cost of getting you back home if a family member became ill and you needed to leave the trip for that reason. This is covered under the trip interruption clause.

Travel insurance will also help cover unexpected travel related issues during the program. For example, if an in country boat or bus is delayed due to weather or otherwise, we could potentially miss our international connection. While this has never happened during our Belize program, travel insurance would help cover such unexpected issues.

We are directing our clients to Pacific Harbor Travel   (831) 427- 5000. By using a local Santa Cruz business, we have an extra layer of protection, a reliable agency that can help advise us if we need to make a travel insurance claim. The great staff at Pacifiic Harbor Travel can review the policies with you and help you select the policy that suits you best. Most clients purchase the  Travel Insured's World Wide Trip Protector Plan which is very affordable. Pacific Harbor travel may also help you book your flights.  If you travel frequently, you may also want to consider an annual travel insurance plan such as one provided by DAN (diver's alert network).

                         One time travel insurance policies may need to be purchased within 15 days of  initial payment to Blue Water Ventures or purchase of an airlines ticket.

Evacuations: Travel insurance is also highly recommended in the event that you require an evacuation

due to a medical condition, family emergency back home or any other reason.

All costs for such evacuations and/or medical treatments are the responsibility of each participant.

Please travel with a credit card in the event that payments are required for an evacuation or medical treatment.

We can not make  any exceptions to our cancellation policy so please protect your travel plans by purchasing travel insurance.

BWV is not responsible for any expenses incurred by participants related to a canceled program or one they participated in, costs such as airline tickets, flight change fees, lost luggage, missed flights, visa fees, transportation, lodging, etc. BWV reserves the right to cancel a trip before it's departure date for any reason including insufficient participation. Blue Water Ventures does not assume responsibility for program changes or trip cancellations due to situations such as those related to weather, natural disasters or political events (i.e. war) or any other reason. Furthermore, BWV is not responsible for changes in private or governmental sectors, both at the domestic and international level, that may effect this trip.
