Conditions in developing countries or the inability to completely fill an expedition group may result in the cancellation of an expedition. If FHe cancels the trip, the Expedition Fee is fully refundable. If an expedition participant submits a deposit, but later cancels their trip as the result of a subsequent travel warning or public announcement from the U.S. Department of State, then the Expedition Fee paid, minus any expenses already incurred by FHe, is fully refundable. FHe recommends that all expedition participants purchase travel insurance that will provide proper coverage for such instances.
FHe will not make refunds for accommodations or services included in the expedition fee, but not used by the participant.
All payments received from persons on behalf of a participant are refundable upon request from the participant.
