TERMS AND CONDITIONS

Book with Confidence! 

Your deposit is fully refundable for 48 hours after your initial booking (provided you book at least 30 days in advance of your desired tour). After 48 hours from booking, your deposit is non-refundable. A 25% deposit is due upon booking. The remainder of the balance is due 30 days prior to the start of your tour, and is non-refundable. 

If you book less than 30 days before your desired tour, the full amount is due at the time of booking. Please note that tours booked less than 30 days in advance are non-refundable.

Your booking is fully transferrable to another person at no additional cost. We ask for a minimum of 30 days notice to allow us to make the necessary adjustments. Transfer requests made less than 30 days in advance of a tour may not be able to be accommodated. Please contact Kootenay Cycling Adventures directly to arrange details.

We are pleased to guarantee trips for bookings of 2 people or more.

Please note that mountain weather can be diverse, and that all tours run rain or shine. We ask our participants to prepare and pack accordingly to rain, wind, heat and any type of weather in between. Please note that we are not able to offer refunds or discounts due to inclement weather. We work diligently to provide the best experience possible to our participants with the weather conditions, and may adjust tours as necessary.

The exception to this is if factors beyond our control prohibit the tour from running (such as road closures). In this case KCA will issue a partial refund or credit for a future date depending on the nature of the situation and if an alternative option is not possible. 

We accept payment by Visa, Mastercard, or e-transfer.
