TERMS & CONDITIONS
These Terms and Conditions govern the relationship between you, the traveler, and us, Pathways Active Travel, LLC. By booking a trip, you agree to be bound by these Terms and Conditions. They outline, among other things, our cancellation policy and certain limitations of liability. These terms affect your rights to sue, governing law, forum, and jurisdiction; please be sure to carefully read these terms and make sure you understand your rights and obligations and our rights and obligations.
Trip prices are per person based on double occupancy, quoted in US dollars, and are set well in advance of the trip departure date. Prices cover land costs only; they do not include airfare to and from the trip. Every effort has been made to produce pricing information accurately. We reserve the right to correct errors.
RESERVATIONS AND DEPOSIT
A non-refundable deposit of $300 per person is required to secure your reservation. To secure reservations on a trip departing within 90 days, a full payment is required by the time of booking. Payment of your deposit indicates your acceptance of these terms and conditions. Final payment for all trips must be made in full to Pathways Active Travel, LLC at least 90 days prior to departure. Reservations will be cancelled if final payment is not received by the due date and cancellation charges will apply.
Your deposit is fully refundable up to 14 days after you book when you sign up 14 or more days before final payment is due.
CANCELLATIONS, TRANSFER POLICY & REFUNDS
We understand how disappointing it is for travelers in the event they are forced to cancel their adventure, especially one which they have been looking forward to for a long time. We, too, plan for these adventures for quite a long period prior to departure and continuously send non-refundable payments to vendors and suppliers. Therefore we must strictly adhere to our Cancellation & Refund Policy for all travelers – we hope you understand!
If you must cancel your trip, you must do so in writing and deliver the statement to Pathways at the following address: 1023 Walnut St., Boulder, CO 80302. You may also email to: firstname.lastname@example.org.
Cancellation refunds will be calculated as of the date we receive your written cancellation. Your cancellation fee will be determined according to the terms and conditions outlined below.
Transfers to another trip or to a future trip are only allowed before final payment, after which time our cancellation policy applies. If you transfer to another trip and the trip costs more than your original trip, you must pay the difference.
Pathways Active Travel, LLC cannot make exceptions to these cancellation policies for any reason. Please note that we do not make any refunds for any unused portion of your trip.

We love single travelers! Travelers who would prefer a single room may have one at a single-room surcharge. We cannot always guarantee single accommodations even after reservations and confirmations have been made. We apologize for having to charge the single-room fee, but our program costs are based on two people sharing the expense of a hotel room. We will be happy to attempt to make a roommate match for those who choose. If we cannot arrange a match, only 50% of the single supplement fee will apply. To accommodate our single travelers, we have made a concerted effort to keep our single-supplement fees as low as possible.
PRE TRIP MATERIALS
Educating and preparing our travelers is a priority for us. Approximately two to three months prior to departure, you will receive a comprehensive Pre-Departure Packet detailing your trip, what to pack and how best to prepare.
All Pathways Active Travel, LLC trips and are limited to no more than 14 travelers. All trips require a minimum number of participants to operate. Pathways Active Travel, LLC reserves the right to change the departure date of any trip, as well as cancel any trip that does not reach a minimum level of participation.

All international programs require a valid passport. All passports must contain at least five blank pages and must be valid for six months after the completion of your trip. All information on your passport including name, passport number and expiration date are needed at time of booking. If your destination requires a visa for U.S. citizens, you are responsible for obtaining a visa prior to departure.
