If we are already within 90 days of the trip start date when you decide to join the trip, instead of sending a deposit you should send the entire trip fee in addition to your registration information.

What is the cancellation and refund policy?

All cancellations must be in writing.

Any Paypal transactions that are canceled after 30 days from the original payment date will not get a refund of the Paypal transaction fee - this is a Paypal policy - and only applies to the transaction fee.

If your canceled spot is filled before the trip begins you will get a full refund minus a $25 processing fee.

If your canceled spot is not filled before the trip begins the following fees apply:

One year or more before the trip - full refund
61 to 365 days before the trip 25% of trip fee

All participants should consider purchasing trip cancellation insurance.

Rick Hobbs Photography reserves the right to cancel a trip before the trip begins. If this happens you would receive a full refund of your trip fees paid to Rick Hobbs Photography. However, any additional expenses you may have paid to someone other than Rick Hobbs Photography, such as non-refundable airline tickets, for example, are not covered under this refund policy.
