I. Trip Cancellation Waiver (TCW)
Payment of the per person Trip Cancellation Waiver guarantees full refund on all payments (including Deposit), except the Trip Cancellation Waiver Fee itself, made for tour rates in case of cancellation up to the time and date of departure due to the passenger’s Personal Illness (Medical Documentation required) or death of an Immediate Family Member (Official Documentation required).
II. AFC’s “Any Reason” Cancellation Waiver (ARCW)
Payment of the per person Trip Cancellation Waiver also includes an “Any Reason” Cancellation Waiver. The “Any Reason” Cancellation Waiver provides you with 75% of the cancellation fees in the form of a future travel credit certificate, should you cancel your tour more than 48 hours prior to your scheduled departure for any reason that is not eligible for cash reimbursement under the Trip Cancellation Waiver (Section I.). Cancellation fees are reimbursed in the form of an AFC Vacations future travel certificate allowing you to travel with us at a later date within one year of the original departure date. Future travel certificate is valid for one year, is nontransferrable, nonrefundable, may not be redeemed for cash, and does not include any credit for the nonrefundable Trip Cancellation Waiver fee.
The Trip Cancellation Waiver Fee (if chosen) is refundable until 180 days prior to departure & cannot be added after Final Payment.
The Trip Cancellation Waiver Fee does not cover any single supplement charges which arise from an individual’s traveling companion cancelling prior to departure. Under this scenario, the single supplement will be deducted from the refund of the person who cancels. Division of the charges is to be determined by the two passengers. The Trip Cancellation Waiver Fee is nontransferable and valid for each applicant only. The Trip Cancellation Waiver does not cover any services such as airline tickets not purchased through AFC Vacations.

AFC Vacations reserves the right to alter its Refund and Cancellation Policy In the event of an act of God, war (whether declared or undeclared), terrorism, accident, natural disaster, outbreak of disease, or other event or circumstance beyond our control that contributes to or results in cancellation rates above our historical cancellation rates in the absence of such event or occurrence.
