REFUNDS: The booking fee is non-refundable and non-transferable. A student unable to attend the trip is encouraged to find a school approved replacement to avoid the loss of monies paid. Participants who cancel and do not arrange for a replacement will be sent a refund after the return of the trip equal to the value of refundable unused meals and admissions. Transportation, lodging, prepaid admissions, and all administrative fees are not refundable. If it should become necessary for First Choice Educational Tours to cancel a trip, a full refund will be issued to all participants. Optional cancellation insurance is available, and recommended.
