DEPOSITS AND FINAL PAYMENTS: If reservations are made more than 90 days before departure date, a non refundable $150 deposit PER PERSON is required to secure space. At 90 days before departure date, a 50% deposit of entire trip fare is required to secure space. The deposit payment(s) can be made by sending a personal or bank check and must reach Deep River Rail Ventures, LLC within 7 days after reserving. Final payment must be received by 30 days before departure date. If reservations are made less than 30 days before departure date, a 100% deposit of entire fare is required and must reach Deep River Rail Ventures, LLC by a time limit date to be arranged.
CANCELLATIONS: More than 90 days before departure date: 100% refund is available minus the $150 non refundable deposit. 89 to 45 days before departure date: 50% refund of entire trip fare. 44 days to departure date: NO REFUND is available. If we have to cancel the trip, then we will provide you with a full refund of your deposit and payment(s). The two most likely causes of us having to cancel a trip would be a mechanical problem that could not be resolved in time for the trip, or a decision by any of the host railroads not to approve the planned travel itinerary.
