Itinerary, pricing and all terms and conditions are subject to change without notice, either before departure or after commencement of the program. Program is subject to the “Terms and Conditions” and “Responsibilities” set forth by each company operating the trip. Some of the trips offered are also available to other university alumni associations, museum and zoo members or other nonprofit organizations. In some cases, there may be more CU-Boulder alumni participants than from other institutions, while on other trips our participants may be in the minority. Regardless, participants usually discover they are traveling with people with similar interests, which enhances the experience for all and often forges lifetime friendships.
Refund and cancellation policies
Each of our tour companies sets its own cancellation and refund policies. You should consult the individual trip brochure. Tour companies generally require a written cancellation in order to process refunds and may retain a portion of the payment for administrative fees.
Our world is in a continuous state of change and some of those changes may force a tour operator to alter dates, itineraries, program details and/or prices for some trips. You should verify all such details with us or with the tour company prior to making a reservation.
Physically challenged travelers
A helper capable of and totally responsible for providing the required attention and assistance must accompany participants requiring extraordinary assistance. Please keep in mind that when traveling as part of a group it is important not to impede or slow down the itinerary. Most trips do involve walking. Any physical and/or medical restrictions must be reported at the time the reservation is made. Please check with us or with the tour company to assist in determining if a trip is right for you.
Please contact Clark Oldroyd for cancellation policies specific to each trip.
