Explorations by Thor ‘EBT’ Terms and Conditions & Cancellation Policy – Group LeaderPosted: Updated:
To confirm a reservation, EBT must receive a deposit at the time of booking. The balance of the cost of the tour is due 45 days prior to arrival. Your reservations will be automatically cancelled if full payment is not received 45 days prior to arrival in Brazil. If you book your tour within the final payment period, you will be required to pay in full in order to secure your booking. Please review and verify your invoice and confirmation forms thoroughly and contact us immediately if your invoice or confirmation form appears incorrect, as it may not be possible to make changes later.
If passengers arrive in Brazil and the full payment has not been received, EBT WILL NOT guarantee any reservation.
Notification of cancellation must be received in writing. The date a cancellation notice is received by EBT will be considered the valid date of cancellation. There may be a cancellation fee regardless of when you cancel, change names of guests, or change dates based on the cancellation policy of the tour operators. Airline penalties may be up to 100% of the full ticketed price. Refunds will not be made to participants who do not complete any portion of the tour for whatever reason, personal or medical, once in Brazil. Unless otherwise stated, the following policies apply:
*A 75% trip refund will be issued if cancellation is received between 89 to 60 days prior to arrival unless there is a charge applied by the providers contracted that exceeds 25% of refund.
*A 50% trip refund will be issued if cancellation is received between 46 and 59 days prior to arrival unless there is a charge applied by the providers contracted that exceeds 50% of refund.
