Terms & Conditions & COVID-19 Booking Policies
Due to the fluid situation with Covid-19, we reserve the right to update these policies at any time and without prior notice.
Read below what happens if your trip is postponed due to COVID-related travel restrictions.
Our Standard Booking Policies
BOOKING A NEW TRIP
How to Sign Up: You can book directly on our website www.rightpathadventures.com and leave a deposit – or call us at +1 435 729 9107 or in Europe at +421 919 222 919 or better still send us an email at: firstname.lastname@example.org and we’ll get right back to you, or we can call you if you prefer (just email us your number and best time to call).
Price: Prices are per person based on double occupancy, quoted in US dollars, and are set well in advance of the trip departure date. Our prices vary depending on a variety of cost factors, with peak travel dates being the most expensive. Prices may change during the course of the year. You can always find the most current prices on our website, or by calling us. Prices cover land costs only; they do not include airfare to and from the trip. Trip prices include baggage transfers, porterage and all ground transportation during your trip. Please see the web page for each trip for the specific details for all items included and not included in the trip price for each specific trip as they do vary depending on the trip.
Trip Deposits: Deposits may be made on our website via credit card on PayPal and/or by check, money order, wire transfer in US dollars or a major credit card. We highly recommend using a credit card that includes travel protection and insurance for your trip.
The deposit is $500 per person for Scheduled Departures and is fully refundable up to 15 days after you book when you sign up 15 days or more before the final payment due date.
For Private & Custom Departures a $2,000 group deposit is required to initiate your request and secure your itinerary for your group. The Private Trip deposit is fully refundable for two weeks while you gather your group. Once confirmed, the initial $2,000 deposit may be applied toward the first two individuals to sign up and a $1,000 per person deposit is required for subsequent guests. If we are creating custom dates for your group, the $2,000 deposit is non-refundable once the date is confirmed by us
Paying Your Balance: The balance of your trip cost is due 95 days before the start date of your trip. We will send you an invoice for the balance due. Balances may be paid by PayPal, check, money order, wire transfer in US dollars or by major credit card. If final payment is not received when due, Right Path Adventures reserves the right to cancel your reservation.
Travel Insurance Policy: We strongly suggest taking out Travel Insurance for all 2022 and future Right Path Adventure tours. Given the active nature of our vacations—and your lifestyle—we know unexpected things that could impact your trip!
No one likes to think about what could go wrong on vacation, travel insurance may help protect your investment from unforeseen circumstances before and during your trip such as:
Sickness or injury
Job loss or relocation
Travel delays or trip interruption
Lost or delayed luggage
Death in the family
Hurricane, fire and other natural disasters
COVID-19 positive test result
And other covered reasons.
In the unfortunate event you must cancel your trip, you will be responsible for any cancellation fees incurred, up to 100% of your trip price. A travel protection plan can help to protect your vacation investment up to 100% of your trip cost for cancellation due to unforeseen covered reasons and is a small price to pay for some peace of mind.
Guest Transfer & Cancellation Policy: If you must cancel your reservation, your cancellation fee will be determined according to the terms outlined in the chart below.
Scheduled Trips: Transfers to another trip or credit on account for a future trip are only allowed before the final payment due date, after which time cancellation fees apply. If the new trip costs more than your original trip, you must pay the difference. Reductions in the group size may result in an increased trip price due at final payment.
Private & Custom Trips: Transfers to another trip or credit on account for a future trip are only allowed before 120 days prior to the trip, after which time cancellation fees apply. If the new trip costs more than your original trip, you must pay the difference. Reductions in the group size may result in an increased trip price due at final payment.
Exceptions to our cancellation policy cannot be made for any reason, including but not limited to weather, terrorism, civil unrest, epidemics or the threat thereof, personal, family or medical emergencies or force of nature. There is no refund for arriving late or leaving a trip early. Private and upgraded rooms are considered part of the total trip cost and are subject to cancellation fees. We encourage guests to consider comprehensive Travel Protection plans for cancellation reasons that fall outside of our policy.
Right Path Adventures reserves the right to suspend departures in cases of force of nature or the failure of third parties—such as hotels — and to honor their reservations, in which case, all payments received to date will be transferred on account for use on a future trip (must be used within 24 months). Right Path Adventures is not responsible for expenses that are incurred in preparation for any suspended trips, such as airline tickets, or for costs that are incurred due to travel delays, flight cancellations or illness. All policies are subject to change.

What if my trip is postponed due to travel restrictions:
For trips in international destinations where the borders aren’t open yet for travellers, we will be reviewing trips at 65 days but no later than 35 days prior to departure (or closer as the situation changes) to determine if it is feasible to run the trip. In the event your trip is postponed, we will place 100% of your trip funds on account along with an additional bonus credit per guest to be used for future travel.*
*All funds and credit must be applied to a new reservation within 24 months from the start date of your originally booked trip.
Travel with more flexibility:
Right Path Adventures is providing new, more flexible booking policies in order for you to plan your future travel with complete peace of mind.
Your deposit is fully refundable up to 15 days after you book. Only applies to deposits made at least 15 days or more before your final payment is due.
Does not apply to Private Trips and reservations made with deposit funds from 2020 or earlier.
Your Deposit/trip payment if granted according to the above Terms & Conditions Is FULLY TRANSFERABLE
You may transfer to another trip or place your deposit on account for a future trip prior to your final payment date. On Private Trips and Custom Trips, you can transfer deposits to a new trip prior to 155 days before your trip starts.
Final payment is at 95 days for Scheduled and Private Trips.
As we’ve learned during this past few years, what makes sense today may not make sense tomorrow. Please understand that we reserve the right to change these policies without prior notice due to the numerous very fluid and unpredictable situations occurring in the world.
