Such substitutions are at ABSOLUT Sports sole discretion and no refunds will be offered for changes in accommodations.
ABSOLUT Sport expressly reserves the right to make changes to services and prices prior to your departure. We will, of course, inform you of any changes. Price adjustment may be necessary for the following reasons:
Special requests such as first floor, adjoining rooms, or ADA compliance must be made at the time of booking and may result in additional costs. All such costs are the responsibility of the customer. ABSOLUT Sport cannot guarantee any requests and is not liable if the supplier does not honor requests. Accommodations outside of the United States may not be compliant with ADA standards.

While we exercise due diligence in the selection of our partners, hotel and other accommodation profiles are based on information provided to us by the supplier.

Suppliers may substitute transportation equipment depending on any variety of factors, including the volume of participants. ABSOLUT Sport cannot be held responsible for any closures, necessary itinerary changes, or curtails for
any reason. These changes will not be considered material changes and will not be consider cause for cancellation by the traveler. Normal cancellation penalties still apply to the trip that has been changed.

This includes but is not limited to hotel accommodations, transportation, meals, admission tickets, etc. All suppliers have their own cancellation policies, which apply to your booking.

Upon, receipt, ABSOLUT Sport will contact suppliers for any applicable refunds as outlined in the supplier’s terms and subject to their review. If you are entitled to a refund, please note that the supplier is responsible for this refund, not ABSOLUT Sport. Suppliers may choose to provide a travel voucher or credit in lieu of refund. We are not responsible for a supplier’s failure to pay a refund or for supplier bankruptcy or insolvency.
In addition to the terms of our suppliers, cancellation charges will apply. Cancellation charges are expressed at a percentage of quoted price as follows:
If the reason for cancellation is covered under the terms of your travel protection plan you may be able to be compensated. For this reason, we strongly encourage the purchase of a travel protection plan including additional cancel for any reason coverage.

We reserve the right to cancel or reschedule any departure for any reason. If we cancel, except in the case of a force majeure event, we will offer alternate arrangements.

It is the customer’s responsibility to protect their purchases. For this reason, Travel Protection Coverage including additional cancel for any reason coverage is strongly recommended. Such plan should cover Trip Cancellation or Interruption, Medical Expense, Emergency Evacuation/Repatriation, and Baggage. Travel protection plans can help protect you in the event of loss of non-refundable trip deposits and payments that result from cancellation or trip interruption (due to a covered reason such as injury or illness before or during the trip). It also helps with reimbursement for medical emergency costs (including very costly medical evacuation costs), missed connections and baggage loss. Travel Protection Plans including cancel for any reason coverage must be purchased in close conjunction with your travel purchase.
ABSOLUT Sport is not qualified to answer technical questions about the benefits, exclusions, and conditions of travel insurance plans. ABSOLUT Sport cannot evaluate the adequacy of the prospective insured’s existing insurance coverage. If you have any questions about your travel protection, call your insurer or insurance agent or broker.
Certain countries have a requirement for foreign visitors to have valid medical insurance on entry. ABSOLUT Sport cannot be held responsible for denied entry if a traveler is unable to provide details to authorities of insurance or denial of entry for any reason. Declining to purchase an adequate travel protection plan could result in the loss of your travel cost and/or require more money to correct the situation. You also acknowledge that without this coverage, there may be no way to recoup any losses, costs or expenses incurred. If you choose to travel without adequate coverage, we will not be liable for any of your losses howsoever arising, for which trip protection plan coverage would otherwise have been available.
