Notes on Cancellation Fees and Notification Timing
Cancellation of the tour due to natural disasters and other forces outside of your control or the control of Martin Bailey Photography K.K. will be evaluated on a case by case basis, depending on how close we are to the tour start date. The funds for most tours are payable to external entities as early as three months before the start date and would require negotiation specific to the situation to determine how much of the tour fees can be returned, if any. We strongly advise you to take out trip insurance (see next section) to cover any losses you may incur should either party have to cancel your tour/workshop.
Insurance requirements for your tour are as follows.
Each participant MUST be covered by Medical Insurance that is valid overseas.
We strongly urge you to take out travel, cancellation, curtailment and default insurance for your trip.
Travel Insurance helps to minimize the risk of monetary losses you would incur in the event of a delay of your departure due to weather, airline strike, missed connection, etc. or due to your inability to travel for reasons such as illness, injury, unforeseen financial complications and other personal circumstances, or if you are required to cancel or cut your trip short for medical, injury or any other reasons. There is also risk that natural disaster cause the tour to be cancelled or cut short due to circumstances outside of your control and that of Martin Bailey Photography K.K. or our contracted service providers, for which we do not assume any responsibility.
There are restrictions and limitations on any insurance program. For this reason, choose your insurance carefully. Check their policies regarding trip cancellation, baggage, cost of international flights and medical insurance. If you intend to include cancellation insurance, the travel insurance companies could require that you buy insurance no later than 7 to 14 days after paying your deposit. If you wait longer, some companies may enforce stricter conditions, so do not delay in contacting an insurance company. To buy online, try companies like www.travelexinsurance.com, www.worldnomads.com or www.insuremytrip.com.
If you will be traveling with a lot of camera gear, you may need to take out additional insurance to cover your gear overseas. If in doubt, check with your insurance company.
