Lifetime and Transferable Festival tour deposits
Understanding that travel plans change and sometimes need to be delayed, we’ve established the Lifetime Transferable Deposit option, designed to ensure that if you need to cancel or delay a trip, you’ll be able to find another time to take your next, great life-changing educational or cultural tour to Cuba.
Lifetime Deposits offers any of our tour participants forced to delay a departure to retain their initial deposit for use at a later date at no extra charge—and with no questions asked. The Lifetime Deposit policy allows you to save your initial deposit (one per person, per confirmed tour) for an unlimited time, be it 10 weeks or 10 years.
Put simply, we want to do the right thing by our travellers and ensure you can still take another trip if your plans have to change.
Please, do notice that if you cancel your participation within 20 days of tour departure you lose 50% of your ground tour payment. If you cancel your participation within 10 days of tour departure you lose 100% of your ground tour payment. Please refer to our Terms and Conditions
for further details.
We also realize that your travel preferences can change over time, so your Lifetime Deposit can be used on any future tour and is not limited to the original tour you booked. Use your Lifetime Deposit to select the dream trip that suits your interests when you plan your next cultural and educational experience with us.
Under this policy, Lifetime Deposits are also transferable. That means you can transfer your initial deposit to another traveller of your choice at no additional charge!
Applies to the “deposit” value of your payment only
. All other payments and final payment amounts subject to
Terms and Conditions
. Not redeemable with any other offer, discount or promotion.
