 Cancellation and Transfer Policy

We realize that sometimes other things can get in the way of your desire to go ride your bike in fantastic and mythical places.  We hope you understand that we have costs that we will not necessarily recuperate when you cancel.  Here is a list of our cancellation fees depending on when you actually cancel.

  • 91+ days             10% of deposit

You may transfer from one trip to another if space is available taking into consideration the above cancellation policy and any difference in cost.  No exceptions are made to our cancellation policy, including weather and personal emergencies. We strongly encourage you to purchase travel insurance to cover you in the event that injury or illness causes cancellation of the entire or partial trip package. There is no refund for arriving late or departing early from a tour, nor for any meals, or services not used while on tour. DuckStore Productions Inc. is not responsible for cancellations, amendments, or additional fees incurred by clients due to acts of nature, civil unrest, terrorism, strikes, work stoppage, force majeure, or inclement weather. DuckStore Productions, Inc. reserves the right to cancel a tour. While this is rare, in the event of cancellation, a full refund will be sent to the client and constitutes full settlement.

 Travel Insurance

DuckStore Productions, Inc highly suggests all clients travelling with us have adequate travel insurance covering accident, personal injury, public liability, loss of luggage and cancellation. If you cancel your trip with us, you are liable for any costs and losses including flights, deposit or balance payments and travel arrangements, so please be sure to have travel insurance that covers these items. We suggest using DogTag special sports and travel insurance https://www.dogtag.com/sports/.

 Client Bikes

DuckStore Productions is conscious about the risk of bicycles being stolen.  It is a constant concern and our staff will do it’s best to keep our participants and staff bikes secure during the period of the trip or package using the secure areas available to us at each location. Please ensure that your bike is insured against theft and that your other personal belongings are also covered as DuckStore Productions cannot accept liability for these items.

 Arrivals & Departures

Trips/Tours start and end at the designated places and times listed in your confirmation materials. Late/early arrivals and late/early departures are responsible for their own transfers to hotels, airports or train stations.
