Group Departure Cancellations: The initial booking deposit may be cancelled for a full refund if it is cancelled within 15 days of booking and the departure date is more than 90 days from the trip departure. If you cancel your trip more than 90 days prior to the trip start date, your deposit may be transferred to another departure. Transferred deposits expire 1 year from the date of cancellation and may only be transferred one time. Cancellations will incur an administrative fee of $500. Cancellation by you between 60 and 90 days prior to the start of your trip will result in a penalty of fifty percent (50%) of the total trip cost and your deposit is not transferrable.  Cancellation by you less than 60 days prior to the start of your trip will result in the loss of the total trip cost, including the deposit.

Private Trip Cancellations: The initial booking deposit may be cancelled for a full refund if it is cancelled within 15 days. If you cancel your trip after the 15 day grace period and more than 180 days from the departure date, your deposit may be moved to a new departure date, with the exception of a $500 (per person) admin fee, and you have 12 months from cancellation to use the remaining funds.

For holiday season departures, all payments are due 90 days prior to departure and cancellations within 75 days of the departure date with result in a total loss of funds. 

Ride the Earth Adventures reserves the right to cancel, alter, reschedule or amend any or all programs offered at any time. If Ride the Earth cancels a departure due to low participant numbers, all attempts will be made to assist participants to re-schedule on a different departure. If no other departure can accommodate the participant, then Ride the Earth will refund all monies paid, with the exception of the administrative fee. In this circumstance, the deposit may be transferred to another departure for travel within 12 months of the cancellation date. 

If Ride the Earth cancels a trip prior to its commencement due to uncontrollable circumstances or safety issues (i.e. natural disasters, public health concerns, or other "acts of God"), then Ride the Earth reserves the right to deny any refunds. In this circumstance, the deposit remains non-refundable and will not be valid for another departure. Ride the Earth requires all participants to carry travel insurance that covers trip cancellation. 


If the traveling party decides to cancel an activity during travel, or cancel any or all parts of the package due to fears of COVID-19, those cancellations will be non-refundable. In general, outside activities involving a third party that are cancelled due to COVID-19 restrictions are non-refundable. If Ride the Earth is unable to operate a tour package due to a change in local/state guidelines, we will do what we can to recover as many funds as possible, less the initial deposit. All monies paid towards accommodations will be subject to third party cancellation policies and refunds cannot be guaranteed.
