If you would like to travel with us, please check with the terms for each trip as the payment policy varies depending on the various arrangements that have been made for that specific trip.

We will send you a link so that you can submit future payments in increments as specified by the terms of that specific trip. If Femscape Sojourns does not receive your total payment on the payment due date, we reserve the right to cancel your reservation and you will forfeit your deposit. If you do not pay for the trip in full by the due date or do not cancel by the due date, the payments you have made will be non-refundable and non-transferable to a different getaway or trip. More details are given on each of the trip pages. We accept Visa, MasterCard, and PayPal.
5. Travel Insurance
Unexpected events happen in life which can cause you to change your plans. We highly recommend that you obtain travel insurance. Most insurance agencies require that you purchase travel insurance within 14 days of booking your reservation. At times, depending on the type of policy your purchase, travel insurance may pay for all or some of your cancellation fees.
6. Pre-Departure Documentation
It is important that you carefully read all trip-related documents that you receive from us as soon as you receive them. It is your responsibility to contact us if any information is incorrect. We cannot accept any liability if you do not notify us of any inaccuracies within 5 days of your receipt of those documents. This agreement, a waiver of liability and assumption of risk agreement and, if required, a medical statement or certification must be signed and submitted by you. If you fail to submit this and other necessary documentation prior to departure, we reserve the right to treat your booking as cancelled by you and impose any cancellation fees described in this agreement.
7. Passports and Visas:
You are responsible for ensuring that all necessary travel documents are valid and effective and in your possession for the entire tour. Passports are required for all U.S. citizens traveling abroad and should be valid for at least 6 months after your date of return. We suggest you apply for or renew a passport early. Other required documents may include visas, permits, and vaccination certificates. You assume complete and full responsibility for checking and verifying any and all passport, visa, vaccination, or other entry requirements. You are also solely responsible for any adverse consequences resulting from incomplete or defective documentation. While we may provide information or advice on matters such as visas, vaccinations, climate, clothing, baggage, and special equipment in good faith as a courtesy to you, we are not responsible for any errors or omissions as to the information provided.
8. Health Requirements and Medical Care:
Our tours may be physically active, with varying levels of demands and fitness requirements depending on the specific itinerary. By signing this agreement, you represent that you do not have any physical or other conditions that would create a hazard for you or other Participants or affect other people’s enjoyment of the tour. If you are required to return our medical statement by a specified deadline, and fail to do so, we reserve the right to prohibit you from departing on the tour and to charge a cancellation fee. If you have a physical condition, dietary restrictions, or other conditions that will require special attention during the tour, you must inform us in writing when the booking is made. We may require a medical certificate if you have a special condition. We reserve the right in our sole discretion to accept, decline, or remove anyone from a tour (at departure or during the tour) who we judge to be incapable of meeting the tour’s physical demands. Femscape Sojourns assumes no responsibility for any medical care provided to you, including those that Femscape Sojourns makes on your behalf. You agree to assume all costs of medical care and related transportation that are provided to you during the tour.

I also hereby consent, give authorization to, and release from liability all trip leaders to secure any emergency medical treatment in the event I am unable to, and I agree to be responsible for the costs thereof.
Release of Liability: As lawful consideration of, and as part of the payment for, the right to participate in the tour, and as part of the payment for the services arranged for me by Femscape Sojourns LLC, I HEREBY EXPRESSLY AGREE TO BE RESPONSIBLE FOR MY OWN WELFARE AND ASSUME ALL OF THE ABOVE RISKS, INCLUDING BOTH THOSE KNOWN AND UNKNOWN TO ME.
As lawful consideration of, and as part of the payment for, the right to participate in the tour, and as part of the payment for the services arranged for me by FS, I HEREBY EXPRESSLY AGREE TO RELEASE, DISCHARGE AND HOLD HARMLESS FOREVER Femscape Sojourns LLC, their owners, employees, shareholders, affiliated entities, employees, agents, representatives, officers, directors, associates, volunteers, successors and assigns from and against any liability, actions, causes of actions, debts, suits, claims and demands of any and every kind and nature whatsoever which I now have or which may hereafter arise out of or in connection with my tour or participation in the activities arranged for me by Femscape Sojourns LLC.

Knowing and Voluntary Execution: I have carefully read and understand the provisions and legal consequences of this agreement, and I hereby agree to all of its conditions. I agree that if any portion of this agreement is found to be void or unenforceable, the remaining portions shall remain in full force and effect.
I understand that in calculating the cost of the tour, FS has relied on my consent to these terms and their enforceability.

I agree that facsimile or electronic transmission of an executed copy of this agreement shall constitute acceptance of this agreement.
10. Complaint Procedure:
If you have a complaint during your tour, you must promptly notify Femscape Sojourns or your tour leader of the problem so that they can attempt to remedy the situation. Failure to do so while you are on the tour will extinguish or reduce your ability to claim compensation from Femscape Sojourns. Further, if you attempt to address the problem on your own without using this notice procedure, you assume responsibility for any added costs you may incur and forfeit any potential refunds. If you are not satisfied after using this notice procedure, you must submit your complaint in writing to Femscape Sojourns within 7 days of the tour’s end date. Femscape Sojourns will not accept any liability for claims received after this period.
You must strictly comply with all local laws, respect local customs and culture, accurately assess your abilities, respect other trip members’ privacy, and follow the suggestions and advice of any assigned guide. The decision of the local guide or local supplier is final on all matters that may threaten the safety or interfere with the well-being of others. During the tour, Femscape Sojourns or the local guide/supplier has the right in its sole discretion to remove anyone a) who it judges to be incapable of meeting the demands and requirements of participating in the tour activities; or b) who it determines to detract from others’ enjoyment of the tour.

You agree that Femscape Sojourns may use, re-use and reproduce any images, photos or videos that you send to us, or that are taken by our guides and/or other travelers of you individually or in a group, in any medium, including but not limited to print, electronic media, or Internet, free of charge and without your right to inspection or credit, for promoting and publicizing our travel products and services worldwide. If you do not want us to use any images of you that are taken by us or other participants during the tour, you must inform us or your tour leader in writing at the start of the tour.

You acknowledge that you are aware and clearly understand that these Suppliers are independent contractors, are not managed by Femscape Sojourns, and are not agents or employees of Femscape Sojourns. A Supplier’s services are subject to the Supplier’s own terms and conditions and the local laws and regulations of the relevant country.
14. Cancellation Policies
Cancellation charges reflect the many expenses Femscape Sojourns cannot recover if you need to cancel, even if you must do so due to a personal emergency. This policy is not meant to be punitive. Femscape Sojourns has incurred various charges in reserving your place on this journey and planning for your participation. Please note that we do not make any refunds for any unused portion of your trip, not arriving, arriving late or leaving the trip early.
To cancel your trip, please contact us via email at Femscapesojourns@gmail.com specifically stating that you would like to cancel your trip. We will process your cancellation within 10 business days. The cancellation policy date applies from the date we receive your email request.
We reserve the right to cancel, alter or modify any tour without prior notice “for any reason”. You acknowledge that the amenities, accommodations, transportation, route, schedule, and itinerary may change without prior notice due to local circumstances or events, which may include mechanical breakdown, flight cancellations, illness, strikes, political disputes, weather, border crossing problems, and other unforeseeable factors. If, prior to departure, we make a significant change because of a problem with a supplier, we will, as soon as reasonably possible, notify you of available alternatives.
In the unlikely event we would ever need to reschedule or cancel a retreat (unless due to events beyond our control) we will refund the full retreat payment that you have paid to Femscape Sojourns. You will not be reimbursed for any personal expenses such as airfare, hotels not booked through us or other travel-related expenses due to changes in itineraries or tour cancellations.
