Cancellation Policy

Cancellation Policy 2018-06-03T15:35:26+00:00

At Compass Heli Tours, your safety and enjoyment is our top priority. We try to be flexible when it comes to accommodating your needs so that you will experience the best helicopter adventure possible. That being said, Mother Nature and other unforeseen circumstances can get in the way of that.

There is no weather forecast for the locations we fly to. We use an aviation area forecast model with a 12 hour outlook to get a general idea of current and forecasted conditions. Mountain weather is unpredictable, so in the event of adverse weather conditions, we reserve the right to cancel the tour on short notice (less than 24 hours). Localized low cloud ceilings may be encountered on an otherwise beautiful day. These low clouds can result in delayed access to some locations. In these situations, we will land at a river or lake in the valley bottoms and wait for the clouds to lift. If we are unable to access the alpine locations, you will only be charged for flight times and any stand by times incurred.  If we have to cancel the trip on short notice, we will do our best to reschedule the helicopter adventure package, at no extra charge, to a time and date that is convenient for you, as long as it does not conflict with another flight. Alternatively, a credit or full refund will be issued. Please be advised we are not responsible for your travel expenses in the event of a cancellation.

You may change the trip date or time up to 48 hours prior to scheduled flight time if it does not conflict with another scheduled flight.

You may cancel your flight and receive a credit or full refund up to 48 hours prior to scheduled flight time, minus a 10% processing fee. Cancellations made less than 48 hours prior to scheduled flight time will be charged the full amount of the helicopter adventure package.

Customers who do not show up for the scheduled flight will be charged the full amount of the helicopter adventure package. Customers who do not show up on time for the scheduled flight will be considered a no-show after 60 minutes and charged the full amount of the helicopter adventure package. Customers who are less than 60 minutes late will have that time deducted from the overall duration of their trip if there is another scheduled flight after theirs.

If you have booked a glacial kayak trip, please be aware that Mother Nature is completely unpredictable. The melt water can disappear in a matter of days if the water is allowed to evaporate faster than the snow and ice can melt or if it unexpectedly drains out of the lake.
