Late payment policy
All our clients receive an email reminder 7 days prior to the balance payment due date. If a payment is overdue by 10 days and we have not heard from the client since sending the first reminder (7 days prior to due date, so for a total of 17 days), the deposit will be forfeited and the spot on the trip will be open again for booking.
As adventure travel involves unexpected events (extreme weather, wildlife encounters, natures obstacles), trip itineraries may be modified to ensure the safety of the participants. Modifying the itinerary may cause changes to the time of day the tour ends. Participants are strongly encouraged to book at least one additional night in Whitehorse the day prior to their departure flight.
On all our trips, guides have the right to change the itinerary if the group security is threatened (weather, wildfire, wildlife, etc.). In case of an itinerary change, guides will redirect the group onto another one, with similar value, difficulty and contents.
We advise our customers to purchase travel insurance, which covers :
- Personal liability
- Medical emergency, repatriation expenses and search and rescue expenses
- Trip cancellation and interruption
- Loss/damage of baggage and personal effects and baggage delay
Participants are responsible for any damage or loss to any equipment provided by The Call of the Yukon as part of the trip (skis, ski boots, poles, tents, sleeping bags, etc…). Any lost or damaged beyond normal wear will be charged to the participants.
All accommodation included in our tours are carefully chosen by The Call of the Yukon. We are working with hotels, motels and B&B’s throughout Yukon that welcome our clients with warm northern hospitality. All of our trip prices are based on a double occupancy in hotel bedrooms.
If you would like to have your own bedroom there will be a single supplement fee added to your package price. If you are travelling as a single and don’t mind sharing a bedroom with someone, let us know and we’ll do our best to match you with another single. We cannot guarantee a shared accommodation and you may be required to pay the single supplement fee or have the option to cancel, subject to penalties.
