Booking Details
At the time of booking, Voygr requires 15% of the total tour price as deposit. The remaining 85% is due 90 days before the tour start date. If booking less than 90 days before the tour start date, 100% of the tour price is due.

Cancellation Policy
If a guest cancels their reservation at least 90 days before the tour start date, funds are refunded minus any non-refundable deposits, or 25% for administration and bank transfer fees (which ever is greater). If cancellation occurs between 90 and 60 days before the tour start, 50% of the funds are forfeited and the remaining balance (50%) is refunded. In case Voygr has incurred non-refundable expenses that total more than 50% of the tour cost, the greater amount + a 25% administration cost will be forfeited. If cancellation occurs between 60 days and 30 days before the tour start, the guest forfeits 80% of the tour price, or the non-refundable amounts already spent on arrangements and vendors, whichever is greater. If cancellation occurs 30 days or less before the tour start, no amount is refunded. Voygr is not liable for any additional costs or losses incurred by the guest due to the cancellation of the tour because of a lack of participation. This includes, but is not limited to, the cost of airline tickets, visas, hotels, and any other travel.

If you wish to leave the group temporarily, you will be asked to sign a release form.

If a leader has to be replaced, there are no grounds for refunds or cancellations.
