A 50% deposit is due within 3 days of booking. Bookings will be cancelled if the deposit is not received by Katmailand within that time period. The balance of payment is due 90 days prior to the start date of the reservation. Katmailand will remit all travel documents once full payment is received, approx. 4 to 5 weeks prior to the start of your trip with us.
Cancellations will be refunded only if all available space is sold, minus a 5% service charge based on the total price of the reservation, $45 per person minimum. Changes in reservation dates are considered cancellations and are subject to our cancellation policy. Deposits are not transferable to another reservation or reservation date. Where changes are made in the itinerary at the request of the guest, no refunds will be made. You may want to consider trip cancellation insurance.
Flight reservations are refundable, less a $100 per person fee, if cancelled at least 14 days prior to the start of the reservation. Cancellations less than 14 days in advance of travel are not refundable. Day trips will be refunded if we cannot fly due to inclement weather.
We strongly encourage that you get trip insurance for your package. While we have the highest rate of successfully flying in to our lodges, in Alaska, weather happens. Life happens, too.
