In order to guarantee any* St. Elias Alpine Guides Group Trip goes at the listed Group Rate, a minimum of 3 participants must sign up. At 45 days prior to the starting date, we will let you know whether or not your trip has met the minimum number of participants to guarantee the Group Rates. If your trip has not met the minimum, you will have 2 full weeks to choose one of the following options:
- You may pay a surcharge to guarantee the trip. This surcharge varies depending on the trip and how many participants are signed up. If others join and the Group minimum is met after you pay the surcharge, you will be refunded the surcharge.
- You may switch to another itinerary during the same dates – subject to availability and trip price adjustment.
- You may cancel your trip minus a $100 administration fee.
- You may roll your entire balance into credit for a future trip with no penalty.
*Rafting trips have pricing set for Groups of different sizes. 30 days before the trip begins, we will let you know how many people have signed up for the trip and adjust your final pricing accordingly, at which time your balance will be due. If more participants sign up after you’ve paid your final balance, we will refund you the difference between the rate you paid and the newly adjusted Group Rate.
