3. NO PORT, NO PAY
POLICY (CRUISE PASSENGERS ONLY)
If during your sailing, your cruise ship is not able to make port as
scheduled due to weather conditions, mechanical failure, or other
unforeseen circumstances, we will cheerfully issue you a 100%
refund of your money.
If an itinerary change is announced in advance of your sailing,
while you still have the opportunity to reschedule your cruise, we
offer you two convenient options.
If your ship is changing itinerary, and will port on a different
date than originally scheduled, please call us 1-866-321-0497 or
email us email@example.com right away so we can make the necessary
arrangements to reschedule your excursions so that you don't miss a
beat. We need a little notice to be able to do this for you,
so it is important to contact us in these situations.
This policy offers you peace of mind that you will not lose your
money if your ship's port of call is cancelled. There is no risk
to book with us!
We will issue
you a voucher valid for 1 year that you can use to
reschedule your tour with us free of charge.
Receive a full
refund of your tour cost, less 5% to cover the fees the bank
charges to process your refund.
Charters, Dolphins, Las Caletas and Rhythms of the Night are subject
to our regular cancellation policy (below).
4. CHANGING YOUR
Keep in mind that
availability on many tours is limited, so if you change close to the
tour date, some tours may be sold out for the dates you want to
switch to. To be safe, try to get your plans ironed out ahead
of time if possible. While we normally can assist you with your
changes for free as part of our service, there are a couple of
exceptions. that are necessary to keep things running smoothly.
Multiple changes to a single reservation may require a small 5%
processing fee, and no changes are permitted within 36 hours, so try
to get things sorted out prior to reserving.
We understand that sometimes things come up that require you to
cancel your reservations. If you need to cancel your tour,
just give us a call. We will cheerfully issue you a refund for
your tour up until 36 hours before the tour date, less a small 5%
processing fee to cover the credit card fees we incur. However,
within 36 hours of the tour, all reservations are non-refundable, as
we are unable to get our money back from the tour operator.
Of course, if you are a cruise passenger, and your ship doesn't make
port as scheduled (see #3 above), or if the tour is cancelled by the
tour operator for weather or any other reason (see #10 below), you
will receive a 100% refund for your tour.
Under some circumstances, we may be able to switch you to a
different day or offer another solution, even within 36 hours, if
you're not going to be able to make it, call us. We'll do
whatever we can, but we can't make any promises.
We do have to apply stricter conditions for cancellations of fishing
trips, private boat charters, and large groups, as these type of
trips take a lot of work on our part to set up for you, and are
difficult to re-book on short notice, as people normally book these
well in advance of their trip. See details below:
Private Boat Charters 37 feet and under (including fishing trips):
We're happy to assist you with your cancellation or assist you in
changing your dates up until 7 days before the trip with only a
small 5% processing fee for changes or a $50.00 processing fee for
cancellations to help cover the credit card fees and other costs we
incur to process these requests. Changes made within 7 days of
the trip date are allowed, but are subject to a $50.00 processing
fee. Cancellations within 7 days are non-refundable.
Large Groups, Specialized Tours, and Boats 37 feet and larger:
Non-refundable within 30 days of your trip, but if we can re-book
the boat, we may be able to offer you a 50% refund. Please
give us a call and we'll try to work something out. Changes within
14 days of the tour date are subject to a 5% processing fee.
Airport Transfers: All reservations must be made prior to 5:00 PM
Central Time the day before the service is requested. If you
make your reservation after this time, we will not have time to
confirm your service, and will have to cancel your reservation and
refund 95% per our usual cancellation policy.
6. NO-SHOW POLICY
We are unable to
issue a refund for a no-show under any circumstances, except as
provided for under our no-port, no-pay policy for cruise passengers
in #3 above.
7. LATE ARRIVAL
If you are late for
your tour, and your tour leaves without you, we are unable to issue
you a refund.
All tours run on
Puerto Vallarta local time (Central Time), which is not always
the same time used by cruise ships - please be aware of this and
confirm with your ship what time zone they are listing their arrival
and departure times in. We cannot offer a refund for tours
missed due to time differences, so make sure you know what time
We strive to provide
you with the best possible service in booking your tours.
However, we do not run the tours ourselves, we simply book them for
you at a discounted price. All disputes over the quality of
the tour or issues with the tour itself, including issues regarding
videos, photos, t-shirts, etc, must be taken up with the tour
provider. Puerto Vallarta Tours cannot be held responsible for
services that we do not ourselves provide.
We will never share
your e-mail address with anyone else under any circumstances without
your express permission, and will never sell your e-mail address to
anyone. We value your privacy and your security. All
online transactions are processed without a human eye ever seeing
your credit card or bank account information, and are processed with
the highest level of encryption currently available for your safety.
10. BAD WEATHER
Most tours in Puerto
Vallarta run rain or shine. It is the tropics - it rains a
lot. If tours were cancelled every time there was rain, all
the tour operators would be out of business. If it rains on
the day of your tour and the tour operator cancels the tour, you are
entitled to a 100% refund. However, if the tour still runs,
rain or shine, then our cancellation policy as stated above applies.

close communication with our selected group of service suppliers,
there is still a possibility that changes on the rates may occur
without notice. As some of the rates become expired and cannot be
timely updated by the operator to your immediate convenience, the
Website regularly runs a rates verification process which may yield
differences between the price you have paid for your reservation and
the price you need to pay to actually enjoy the service. When an
updated rate happens to be lower than the originally offered to you,
the Website will only charge the lower amount. When an updated price
is higher than the originally quoted price, the Website will have a
travel consultant inform you of the specific variation and the
resulting balance that needs to be covered. Should you not agree to
the correct amount and decide to cancel upon the circumstances, the
Website will honor your cancellation request without penalty. The
Website and its service suppliers will also be released from any
responsibility towards compensations that the client may claim and
will not be considered liable for any inconveniences arising from
the said rate difference and/or cancellation..
