 TRIP INSURANCE
is highly recommended and protects your investment.
[In 2015 one couple had to drop from the Spain trip 1 day
before departure due to a family emergency.  A refund was not possible
but they had purchased trip insurance that reimbursed them.]

NOTES
Exceptions to this policy cannot be made for any reason,
including weather, civil unrest, or personal emergencies.
   
There can be no refund for arriving late or leaving early.

All refund requests must be made in writing;
Email to:
Ron@CairnStoneTours.com

or use online form:  Refund Request Form 

     or Mail to: Ron Gunn, 142 Conifer Trail, Dowagiac, MI 49047.

Verbal requests must be followed by a written request.

Thank you for your cooperation with this policy.

It is fair especially considering our unique easy payment option.
 This works out for airline, ground transportation and hotel progress
payments when all payments are made on time.  With time
airline payments may not be refundable and penalties are levied
when group seats are canceled. Ground transportation costs
remain the same and hotel refunds can be tricky especially
with an independent roommate involved.

 Trip Insurance protects you and Cairn Stone Adventure Tours.
