You must agree to the Terms and Conditions and pay a deposit of $400 per person to request a seat. You can pay your deposit online, by mail or by fax. We accept personal checks, money orders, bank drafts, and credit or debit cards (Master Card, Visa only ) for tour deposits and single supplements (if available).
Your final tour balance must be paid by personal check, money order or bank draft. We cannot accept credit cards for the final tour balance. Final tour payments are due 75 days before departure. We reserve the right to cancel your reservation if you fail to pay by the due date. To confirm a tour departing in less than 60 days full payment is required and the tour deposit is non-refundable.
Credit Card Holds: A credit card hold will reserve your spot for one week. If we do not receive your payment in the mail by then, we will process $15 on your credit card for administrative services and you relinquish your spot. If you use a credit card hold to reserve your spot, this acts as money in hand, therefore the same cancellation policies apply. If you cancel before you send your check, the cancellation penalty will be charged to your credit card.
A $10 fee will be added to registration fees within 3 days of the event A $25 fee will be added for any weekend event that registers within the week of the trip.
The following cancellation policies apply (unless specifically noted in the trip description) regardless of when you registered, even for personal emergencies. Nor is there a refund for leaving a tour early or arriving late. The cancellation policy is based on the money that was due and not the money that Steppin' Out has in hand. For example, if you signed up for a trip and only gave a deposit, and then didn't cancel until 80 days prior, you would owe Steppin' Out 50% of the trip.
