8. Cancellations received before 5 pm one day prior to tour result in a 50% charge, and 100% for cancellations received after 5 pm the day before, or on the same day as the tour only when you settled payment at local tour desk and received a receipt showing the policy.
9. For individual ‘Optional’ tour – Including “Set” tour, Cancellations, after payment settled, received up to 5 pm two (2) days prior to tour start date, will be charged 10% of the tour fee, received one (1) day before will be 50% and cancellations after 5 pm one (1) day prior to or a no show on the tour date are 100% non-refundable.
10. For ‘Package’ tours – If package is cancelled up to 15 days prior to arrival date, $100 administrative fee per person will be charged and the balance is fully refunded. If cancelled 14 to 8 days prior to arrival date, 50% of the tour fare is charged, and 50% is refunded.

Once the tour started, any portion of your purchase is not refundable nor replaceable.
The Cancellation Fee will apply in all cases where a tour is able to run. For example, if you are unable to reach a tour due to an “act of God” (for example a road is cut off due to flooding) the normal Cancellation Fee will apply if the tour still runs in your absence or would have run but for your absence. If a tour or other travel service is cancelled by the Service Provider, we will refund you the amount paid for the tour or other travel service less a 10% administration fee per person (“Admin Fee”).
If your tour relying on any other service suppliers that have different cancellation terms, and is on a case by case basis. Please note that in the case of Natural Disasters (eg flood, fire, cyclone, etc) many service providers do not offer any refund, hence we cannot provide a refund to you. Again, we strongly recommend Travel Insurance to cover this situation.
If your booking includes airport transfers Aurora Village meets all arriving and departing Air Canada and Westjet flights.
Any changes to travel plans due to the delay or cancellations of flights we will try and accommodate into our schedule as best we can.
However, Aurora Village accepts no responsibility for travel arrangements affected due to flight delays, cancellations or changes.
These are out of our control and all cancellation fees, as well as terms and conditions, will apply as specified.
We always do our best to maximise Aurora Viewing time and we will assist travellers as best we can on a case by case basis.
We can provide information to you about travel insurance should you require it. It is your personal responsibility to purchase travel insurance to cover any liability which may be incurred to us or a Service Provider and other travel misadventures that you wish to be insured against. We recommend that you source travel insurance with a low excess payment, to make claiming on cancelled tours worthwhile.
We endeavour to package tours that will meet your expectations. However, we take no responsibility for any matters that arise with regard to or during individual tours or arrangements with individual Service Providers.
We appreciate your feedback, whether complaints, compliments or suggestions. However, to the extent permitted by law we will not be responsible to you for any loss, expense or damage that you may suffer during any particular tour, accommodation or travel, no matter the cause that is not operated by us.

“Ticket(s)” or “voucher(s)” with booked travel dates: It is your responsibility to ensure you check the dates on your ticket and that they are correct. You must redeem your “ticket(s)” or “voucher(s)” on the dates booked. If you wish to change these dates you must normally organise it us directly, with adequate notice. Fees may apply. You must reconfirm all booked dates 48 hours prior to travel (minimum guide only) or in the manner stated on your voucher. If applicable, dietary requirements should also be confirmed/reconfirmed at this time.
Open dated tickets: You must book your travel dates in advance with us or the individual Service Provider as per details provided on your “ticket(s)” or “voucher(s)”.
We endeavour to package the best value tours available at the best prices. However, we take no responsibility for price fluctuations arising from changes in the prices charged by Service Providers occurring before final payment. Accordingly, the price of your travel is subject to change until such time as you pay for the travel in full.
Many tours have extra costs and you should be aware that there may be added expenses if items are not included in your package. These expenses will differ for each Service Provider but some of the more usual extras are: Winter Clothing Hire, Luggage storage, Heated Seats upgrades, Photography Equipment Hire, Food, Insurance, Accommodation, or Aurora Viewing Extensions. We will alert you to extra costs to the extent reasonably practicable. However, you must also check with each individual Service Provider when you confirm your ticket.
