Please note that Converted Prices will fluctuate over time, as the exchange rate of the underlying Supplier Price changes.
6. Price Matching
6.1. If you find a tour or activity on Project Expedition that is being sold at a lower Retail Price by the same Supplier, for the same tour, in the same currency, and for the same date and time, then Project Expedition will match that price once verified by Project Expedition (“Price Matching”). The Retail Price does not include any discounts, sales, promotions, or deals. Price Matching is not available for transfers or custom quotes.

Please allow up to 48 hours for a Supplier to manually confirm a Booking.

8. Cancellations, Modifications, and Complaints by the User
8.1. You are responsible for checking the cancellation policy that applies to each Product prior to making a Booking. You will find the cancellation policy listed at the bottom of each Product page on the Website and on the Booking Voucher of confirmed Bookings.
8.2. If you need to cancel or modify a Booking, you must submit your request online via the "Manage Bookings" page. The "Manage Bookings" page can be accessed by (1) visiting https://pe.tours/manage (2) clicking the "Manage Bookings" link at the top right of any page on the Website, or (3) if you have a User Account, going to the "Bookings" tab in your account dashboard and then selecting "Manage Reservation.”
8.3. A request to modify an existing Booking will be subject to availability and the approval of the Supplier. Upon approval from the Supplier, Project Expedition will issue you a new Booking Voucher that confirms the requested modifications.
8.4. Any transfer that is purchased via Project Expedition’s Transportation Platform cannot be modified and can only be canceled and rebooked. Cancellations of transfers are subject to the cancellation policy outlined on your Booking Voucher, so it is recommended that you purchase travel insurance that protects against the impact of a flight cancellation or modification. The URL to Project Expedition’s Transportation Platform is: https://projectexpedition.com/transportation.
8.5. If you experience an issue with a Booking, you must report it to Project Expedition no later than 14 days after the date of your reservation. All issues must be reported on time, in writing, and emailed to firstname.lastname@example.org. Your failure to comply with these requirements will eliminate the possibility of a refund.
9. Other Cancellations and Modifications
9.1. If a Supplier cancels a Booking due to a situation outside of their control, including weather, mechanical failure, strikes, and other unforeseen events, then a full refund will be provided. However, in situations where only a portion of an original itinerary is impacted, then the Supplier is not required to cancel a Booking and may, at their discretion, offer a partial refund or an alternative of equal or greater value.
9.2. Please note that cancellations and changes related to weather are at the complete and total discretion of the Supplier. If you refuse to participate in a Booking because of the weather and your Booking is not canceled by the Supplier, then you are not due a refund.
9.3. You understand that some Products have additional restrictions or requirements, such as body weight and height requirements, age and health restrictions, and more. It is your responsibility to make yourself aware of this information prior to making a Booking. Failure to comply may result in the Supplier cancelling your Booking without a refund.
9.4. If you arrive late or fail to show up for a scheduled reservation, then you will not be eligible for a refund. It is your responsibility to become familiar with pick up instructions or the meeting location for a Booking prior to the start of your reservation.
9.5. In rare circumstances, Project Expedition may need to cancel a confirmed Booking. Project Expedition reserves the right to cancel or modify any Booking at any time. If a reasonable alternative cannot be arranged, Project Expedition will issue you a refund.
10.1. Eligibility for a refund will be determined by the cancellation policy of your Booking. As per Section 8.1, it is your responsibility to familiarize yourself with the cancellation policy prior to making a Booking.
10.2. Approved refunds will be issued back to the original form of payment used to make a Booking.
10.3. Project Expedition will endeavor to process approved refunds within two business days. Once processed, it generally takes 5-7 business days for a refund to post back to the original form of payment (please note that this time frame is ultimately determined by the financial institution that issued the credit or debit card and is outside of Project Expedition’s control).
10.4. Should an error occur while processing a refund whereby the amount refunded is greater than the refund amount that was approved, Project Expedition reserves the right to process a new charge to correct the error.

13.2. You understand that Project Expedition reserves the right to pursue legal action in the event that a chargeback is filed for a valid charge and Project Expedition incurs a loss as a result (also known as friendly fraud).
13.3. If a chargeback is filed prior to the travel date of a Booking, then Project Expedition may either require a new payment equal to the disputed amount to keep the Booking as originally scheduled, or Project Expedition may cancel the booking. In the event of a cancellation due to a chargeback, any relevant cancellation penalties will still apply.
