Policies For Cancellation of Bus Trips
If you have already paid for a bus trip and decide to cancel your reservation, you must do so at least one week prior to the scheduled bus trip in order to receive a credit. You will not be reimbursed for the trip but will receive a credit that can be applied toward the next bus trip. This credit is valid only for one year from the date of the cancellation. If the next bus trip you attend costs less than what you previously paid, you will NOT be reimbursed the difference.
If you have any questions regarding how the credit works or to cancel your reservation, please call the Active Senior Network at (440) 234-6080.
