Participation Policy – We reserve the right to determine the level of activity AND the eligibility of an individual’s ability to participate on each trip or one’s need for assistance. We also reserve the right to expel any person whose behavior is inappropriate or incompatible with the interests of the tour group.
Extra Cost Provision – As on any trip, inclement weather and other conditions beyond our control may prevent or delay departure of a scheduled airline, ship, train or motor coach. If, as a result of a delay, the participant must book an additional hotel night, meals, transportation, etc. all additional costs are solely the responsibility of the participant, not the City of Kent or any other supplier. Due to rising fuel costs, a fuel surcharge may be implemented by trip provider.
Most trips fill up, so sign up early. Once a trip fills a waitlist is maintained. A trip having a waitlist does not guarantee your spot can be filled if you cancel.
