Double Occupancy: Geek Nation Tours are always priced per person based on double occupancy - that is two people sharing one room. We can of course make other arrangements based on need. Single and triple occupancy for instance can be arranged. Depending on the tour this may incur a price increase.
Tour Cancellation: Geek Nation Tours reserves the right to cancel or re-schedule any tour departure in accordance with operating requirements or circumstances beyond its control. Geek Nation Tours will try to re-book the same or similar tour whenever possible.
All tours have a minimum participant level need to confirm a specific tour. With this said Geek Nation Tours often goes ahead with the tour regardless of this minimum participant level... If this is the case, booked participants will be given the option to still participate in the tour at a slightly increased cost. Also in this case some services will need to be cancelled.
If Geek Nation Tours cancels a tour all funds will be returned to the participant.
Geek Nation Tours is not responsible for any other travel arrangements affected due to our cancellations.
Cancellations: Please NOTE that all tours are booked with several different sources so individual participant cancellation can often mean that Geek Nation Tours is not able to refund any monies. This can be true of final payments as well as deposits. We will however try to our very best to refund when suppliers allow this. Generally if notice of cancellation is received by Geek Nation Tours 45 days or more prior to departure, the non-refundable deposit will be retained. As a general rule only the following charges will apply when notice of cancellation is given after the booking is confirmed (with that said we can only confirm a refund when all suppliers of a particular tour refund Geek Nation Tours. Each tour is different and thus no refunds can be guaranteed at any time). Further once a tour is closed for booking or sold out no refunds can be offered as suppliers are paid in full at that time:
|No. of days prior to tour departure||Cancellation fee as a % of the total price|
|45 days or more||Non-refundable deposit(s)|
|44 – 22 days||Non-ref deposit + 45% of final|
21 – 1 days
|Day of departure / no show||100%|
*All refunds will have a 6% credit card charge applied to them.
Bus Departure Times: Respect for your fellow Geeks is very important. As a result, we require all passengers to be ready to leave at the designated departure times. Geek Nation Tours will not be responsible for any extra expense accrued if a passenger has missed the bus and must travel independently.
Clients may be responsible for some additional transportation costs in destination.
Event Cancellation or Date Change:
Geek Nation Tours cannot be held responsible for an event cancellation or event date change. If this occurs, Geek Nation Tours will attempt to rebook to accommodate the new dates or cancel the tour. Often however GNT will continue with the tour and tour participants will explore another venue or aspect of that tour's focus. Some additional charges may be incurred because of the change or cancellation.
Tour Detail Change:
Geek Nation Tours reserves the right to change details on all tours. This is less likely to happen after a tour is in the "Now Booking" stage but may happen at any time prior to the departure of a tour or even during a tour itself. A change in an itinerary normally will be accompanied by a change in price and thus additional fees may incure. A tour will not be canceled for such reasons.
Further Geek Nation Tours cannot be held responsible for changes or cancellations in any "Special Guest" line up. From time to time Special Guests have personal reasons why they cannot attend a tour. Geek Nation Tours cannot be held liable for any such cancellation. With that said a tour will also not be cancelled for similar reasons.
Lastly Geek Nation Tours cannot be held responsible for a change, cancellation or disruption of an event, festival, convention, museum or other planned venue we wished to visit on a particular tour. In such a case we will attempt to expand our exploration of the areas in question and continue with the rest of the tour as planned. We will not cancel a tour for these or similar reasons.
Event Tickets No Longer Available:
Some tours involve event tickets that are quickly sold out GNT reserves the right to cancel a tour that it can no longer provide for this reason. For those already booked GNT will provide alternate options.
Form of Payment:
Geek Nation Tours accepts credit card, cheque, money order and paypal payments on all deposits. Geek Nation Tours reserves the right to charge secondary deposits and final payments that must be made by cheque or money order. Although normally this credit card charges are included in the price of the tour. Alternatively secondary and final payments can be made by credit card at a 4% service fee. Paypal final payments will almost always have a 4% charge placed on them.
Note additionally, your credit card company may charge a foreign transaction fee for all credit card payments made to Geek Nation Tour as we are located in Canada.
Change in Pricing:
Geek Nation Tours reserves the right to alter tour pricing at any time. Changes in the value of a particular currency and international tax changes may force GNT to alter tour pricing. Tour details may be changed also to accommodate new information or changes made to a destination. These changes may in turn require a tour price adjustment and may happen at any time including while in destination. These instances are very rare.
Often Airlines implement fuel surcharges unexpectedly. If an airline does this on a flight included in a Geek Nation Tour - Geek Nation Tours reserves the right to pass that fee to its tour participants.
