Is the registration fee refundable?

We do offer refund provisions through our Full Refund Program, or similar program based on your program type. You can choose this option (at a nominal additional cost) when you register for your trip. These programs provide a refund of all monies paid, minus the program fee and other nonrefundable fees (initial deposit), if it becomes necessary to cancel at any time prior to departure for any reason.

For full information about this program, please refer to the terms and conditions. If you do NOT have the protection of one of these plans, your registration is subject to our Standard Cancellation Policy as follows:

  • If your cancellation is postmarked more than 75 days before the group’s departure, WorldStrides will retain 25% of the base price.
  • If your cancellation is postmarked 74-45 days before the group’s departure, WorldStrides will retain 50% of the base price.
  • If your cancellation is postmarked within 44 days of the group’s departure, WorldStrides will retain 100% of the base trip price.
