However if you have to cancel due to unforeseen circumstances we will make every effort to substitute someone from our standby list. This does not include Airfare to Egypt. The airlines usually give back about 80%. That's why we strongly recommend that you obtain travel insurance.

If there is any claim for a refund, for any reason other than cancellation, such claim must be made directly to Genesis and it must be received in writing within 30 days after the scheduled return date of the tour. If Genesis cancels the tour, all Monies paid by the participant will be returned. This return of Monies paid is participant's only recourse. This cancellation policy excludes airline reservations and tickets that are covered by the rules of the air carriers concerned.
