We guarantee that we will not cancel any confirmed booking. You can reserve any hike, guided tour, or activity with confidence.
It's customary for some operators to confirm your reservation for a group tour or hike with the understanding that if they don't get enough people to sign up, they can cancel your reservation. This makes it hard for you to make decisions when booking flights and hotels that revolve around your tour or hike. Adios Adventure Travel guarantees that we will not cancel your tour or hike.
The only circumstance in which a tour or hike would be canceled is if you do not pay the full amount as agreed upon, or if a natural or man-made disaster, strike, epidemic, or other event out of our control were to occur. In this case, we would endeavor to offer an alternative activity as long as changes will not affect the safety of any travelers, guides or local staff.
In case of a global, national or regional event of any kind, including epidemics or pandemics, that may affect your ability to travel or complete your trip, we require every group who pays with a credit card to purchase comprehensive travel insurance that covers all your known trip expenses including air and ground, as well as additional unknown expenses that may occur. CFAR (cancel for any reason) policies have a track record of covering up to 75% of costs. Adios Adventure Travel does not insure or refund any travel expenses for any reason. For people who choose not to buy travel insurance, you can pay with ACH bank transfer or mail a check in USD for deposit to our US based bank.
All cancellations must be in writing at the following email address: (email@example.com). You must receive a reply by email in order for the cancellation to be valid. If you notify us of your cancellation and we do not reply, the cancellation is not in effect and you are responsible for all fees as per the original agreement. In case email problems are encountered, please contact us by phone: 757-714-6649.

Trips that include any Inca Trail hike have a separate cancellation policy for the hike:
No portion of the cost of Inca Trail hikes can be refunded, transferred, or cancelled at any time due to Machu Picchu National Park regulations. The full amount of the reservation will be charged. The cost to cancel your permit or trip may be more than the cost of your deposit. This is why it's necessary for you to pay the full amount even in cases where you need to cancel prior to the payment of the final balance.
*Non-refundable Advance Purchases:
Non-refundable non-transferrable items purchased by Adios Adventure Travel prior to cancellation will be added to the retained amount if the cost of such purchases is greater than the retained amount listed above, such as airfare, train tickets, luxury hotels, jungle lodges, cruises and air taxis.
For cancellations for bookings made less than 60 days in advance of arrival: we retain 100% of price.
