Terms and Conditions
The following terms and conditions apply if you are joining one of our regularly scheduled trips listed on our website.
A deposit of $500 per person, per tour, is required to confirm a reservation. This may be paid with a Visa, MasterCard, Discover, American Express, and Paypal.
Before your tour, we will send you detailed information on what to bring, how to prepare for your trip, travel details, daily itinerary, Acclimation Package Information, and First Crush Tour’s policies.
The balance of the trip price is due 60 days prior to departure, payable by credit card. If the balance is not paid when due, First Crush Tours reserves the right to regard the reservation as canceled.
Cancellations and Refunds
If you must cancel your reservation for a tour and/or its extension, we will transfer your deposit to another tour for up to one year, less the following fees per tour and/or extension:
- 60+ days: Deposit is transferable for up to one year
- 59-30 days: Deposit is transferrable for up to one year, 50% of trip is refunded
- 29 days or less: Deposit is transferable up to one year, remainder of balance is nonrefundable
When you cancel a trip, we must ask you to notify us in writing. Exceptions to these policies cannot be made for any reason. If unforeseen circumstances require a change to the trip itinerary, First Crush Tours will make every effort to select alternative hotels of the same standard and to keep modifications to a minimum. First Crush Tours reserves the right to cancel a trip for any reason. In such an instance, we will refund all payments received, which will constitute full settlement.
Each trip begins and ends in a town accessible by plane, train, boat or bus. Meeting and ending locations are listed on each of the individual trip pages online, as well as in your pre-departure information. For some tours, it may be preferable to arrive at the starting point the night prior to the trip departure date. We will be happy to provide you with our Acclimation Package. You will be met by FC TC’s upon arrival at the hotel and given suggestions before your tour even begins! On overseas trips, arriving a day early to acclimate with the time change, climate, and jet lag, and you can start your tour off right!
We recommend in all Deposit and Final Confirmation Packages travel insurance that offers you options to cover baggage, accident/ life and/or trip cancellation. Trip cancellation insurance reimburses you for non-refundable air and land costs, if you must cancel a trip due to personal or family illness or accident. We highly recommend that you obtain this insurance, on your own. We suggest Travel Guard International or World Nomads.
