Trip Reservation, Deposits and Cancellation Policy
A reserved charter is confirmed with receipt of a completed attached reservation form accompanied with a nonrefundable/non-transferable deposit of $22,000.00 to Far and Away Adventures. A private charter adventure is limited to 22 people, with the total number of participant’s dependent on service upgrades. Telephone reservations are acceptable but the deposit and completed reservation form must be received within two weeks or the space will be released. The trip balance will be due January 1. Deposits are non-transferable and nonrefundable. Due to the fact that we are limited in the number of people who can take on each trip and the number of trips available each year, a deposit must be received to hold a space. Since that space then becomes unavailable, the person booking the space is responsible for payment of said space.
In all cases of cancellation, Far and Away Inc. must receive the notification in writing at P. O. Box 54, Sun Valley, ID 83353. We regret that we cannot make exceptions for personal emergencies due to the nature of the trips, and for this reason, we very strongly recommend trip cancellation insurance. No refunds will be issue after final payment has been made. It is the participant's responsibility to arrive at the Far and Away departure sites at the required times.
Far and Away Inc. does reserve the right to cancel a trip or make changes in the itinerary if necessary due to weather conditions, water conditions, water fluctuations, insufficient reservations, changes in international relations, USFS wilderness closures, or other circumstances beyond our control. Outright cancellation is unlikely. It is for the above reasons we strongly encourage you to protect this investment with trip cancellation insurance.
Far and Away Inc. and cooperating agencies act only in the capacity of agent for the participants in all matters relating to transportation and/or all other related travel services and assume no responsibility however caused for injury, loss, or damage to person or property in connection with any service, included but not limited to, that resulting directly or indirectly from acts of God, detention, annoyance, delays and expenses arising from quarantine, strikes, thefts, pilferage, force major, failure of any means of conveyance to arrive or depart as scheduled, civil disturbances, government restrictions or regulation, discrepancies or change in transit over which it has no control. Reasonable changes in itinerary may be made where deemed advisable for the comfort and well being of the participants. Water levels or natural occurrences may necessitate flying backcountry aircraft to trip departure incurring an additional charge to our guests. Return back country aircraft flights are optional. Car shuttles and rental car service is available. Trip costs excludes USFS user and demo fees, as well as Idaho sales tax, and optional massage sessions. On advancement of deposit, the depositor agrees to be bound by the above-recited terms and conditions.
River running, paddle sport and outdoor adventure activities are hazardous activities and should only be undertaken by people in good health. If you have any questions about your ability to withstand the rigors of the activity, please contact your physician before committing to the activity.
Once you have finalized your reservation, your spaces are closed to any further marketing by Far and Away. This means the limited space(s) is not open for inquiries from the public; it is reserved exclusively for you, waiting and available for you when you arrive. We do not over book, so guests are not waiting to take your place if you choose not to participate. Due to the financial repercussions of empty spaces on any of our trips, we are not able to refund deposits or final payments. It is for this reason we strongly recommend Trip Cancellation and Interruption Insurance. This policy will protect you financially if your trip is canceled, interrupted or delayed due to sickness, injury, death, financial default of airline, weather condition or act of terrorism.
Please read this policy carefully and ask us if anything is unclear.
