Trip Cancellation/Change of Destination

Depending on road closures or lack of snow, your trip coordinator may have to change the trip destination. There will be no refunds and you may be asked to pay any additional costs. PLEASE check with your trip coordinator.

In exceptional circumstances, day trips may be cancelled with very short notice.

Payment, Refund policy – Day and Weekend Trips

Payment must be made in full at time of registration. Cheques (payable to Nordic Wrecks) only, please. If you cancel before the trip is declared a GO, we will tear up your cheque.

As a nonprofit club, we can’t cover cost shortfalls due to member cancellations or “no-shows”. The club can not issue “credits” to carry forward payments from one trip over to another.

If you are faced with a last minute cancellation, try to find a friend to take your place.

Day trips:

There will be no refund for member cancellations after a trip is declared a GO.

Weekend trips (where the club pays for both the bus and the room)

Bus costs: There will be no refund for member cancellations after a trip is declared a GO.

Room costs: Your trip coordinator will make every effort to recoup room deposits or restructure reservations to reduce your costs.

Bottom line: If you cancel after a GO, you may be required to pay for both the bus and the room costs.
