By accessing this website we assume you accept these terms and conditions in full. Do not continue to use the 2 Degrees website if you do not accept all of the terms and conditions stated on this page.

ELIGIBILITY:

Students ages 10 to 24 are eligible to participate in 2 Degrees Programs. Proof of student identification is required.

HEALTH REQUIREMENTS:

Participants must be in good physical condition and mental health. Any condition requiring special attention, allergies, dietary restrictions, or medication must be reported within fifteen (15) days prior to departure. Students must submit a doctor’s certificate stating students’ ability to travel and engage in physical activities upon application to this program.

BASIS OF RATES:

All program fees are quoted in U.S. dollars (USD). The rates are based on current tariffs and are subject to change due to unforeseen circumstances. While 2 Degrees will do everything possible to maintain the listed program fees, if it is necessary to levy a surcharge, 2 Degrees reserves the right to do so.

INCLUDES:

Rates include all meals, lodging, activities, excursions, ground transportation, taxes, and pre-trip instructions, $10,000 CND medical and accidental insurance, 24/7 guides as well as sport equipment rentals.

EXCLUSIONS:

Program fees specifically exclude airfare and airfare related fees, tips, costs of obtaining passports or visas, baggage charges, trip cancellation insurance (or any other travel insurance), personal expenses such as spending money, and any other items not specifically noted as included.

DEPOSIT:

A deposit of $500 is required on all applications. The deposit is credited to the total program fee when the student receives their visa and is accepted into a 2 Degrees program; payment of the deposit must be made by PayPal, direct deposit, or wire transfer only. Once the deposit has been confirmed, all information about the trip and relevant documentation will be emailed to the student’s parents and/or guardian.

FINAL PAYMENT:

Final payment is required before application of Visitor’s Visa.  If no visa is required for the student, final payment of the full program fee is due 45 days before departure date.  For applications submitted within the 45 days, please contact 2 Degrees for expedited visa information.

All final payments must be made to 2 Degrees directly through PayPal, direct deposit or wire transfer only.  The safest route to pay for 2 Degrees tours is through your school and school pays for entire group directly to 2 Degrees through wire transfer. 2 Degrees is not responsible for payments made to any other outside party (ie: individual agents, travel agencies). Payments made outside of PayPal, direct deposit, or wire transfer are invalid.  Please pay by PayPal online or request for account information to pay by direct deposit or wire transfer.

PASSPORT AND VISAS:

Valid passports are required for travel to international destinations; check with 2 Degrees for the latest requirements and assistance. For students that require a visa, 2 Degrees will provide detailed information on how to obtain a visa. A welcome email will be sent once full payment is made. In the event a visa is denied for any reason, the full payment will be refunded, less a $500 administrative fee.  Visa processing may take up to forty-five (45) days. To ensure you receive your visa in time apply at least 45 days prior to the full payment due date. 2 Degrees is not responsible for any visas denied. Student names will be forwarded to the Canadian Embassy, Visa Section, to facilitate visa application. Only names of students with full payment and complete documentation will be included in the invitation.

CANCELLATION:

2 Degrees Transformational Travel reserves the right to cancel applications that are not completed in a timely manner; however, 2 Degrees will communicate with applicants to facilitate the admissions process prior to cancelling applications. 2 Degrees further reserves the right to revoke an acceptance when payment is past due.

If 2 Degrees cancels an application prior to departure, full payments will be refunded, less a $500 administrative fee.  The administrative fee includes non-refundable fees such as medical insurance, transfer fees, registration and placement fees.

Leaving a trip in progress, for any reason, will not result in a refund, and no refunds will be made for any unused portion of a trip. 2 Degrees reserves the right to cancel any trip because of inadequate enrolment that makes the trip economically unfeasible to operate or because of good faith concerns with respect to the safety, health, or welfare of the students. If 2 Degrees Transformational Travel cancels a trip prior to departure, 2 Degrees Transformational Travel will provide a full refund of monies paid, except in the event the cancellation is due to a significant event that makes it infeasible to operate the trip as planned, in which case 2 Degrees Transformational Travel will provide a refund and/or trip credit equivalent to monies paid. If 2 Degrees cancels the trip in progress, you will receive a prorated refund based on the number of days not completed on the trip. 2 Degrees will not be responsible for any refund for any expenses related to non-refundable airline tickets.

WITHDRAWAL:

If a student withdraws from a program for any reason, either before or after their application is accepted, the following terms will govern any refunds:

  • For a withdrawal on or before 45 days prior to departure, all payments will be refunded, less a $500 administrative fee. For a withdrawal within 45 days of departure, no refunds will be made. No refunds will be made once a Visa has been issued but the student may receive a future trip credit only.

ITINERARY CHANGES:

2 Degrees carefully plans each trip; however, there may be instances where the trip descriptions and staff presented may change. Every reasonable effort will be made to operate trips as planned, but alterations may still occur after the final itinerary is sent. To get the most out of their experience, students need to be flexible in responding to unforeseen situations and in taking advantage of unexpected opportunities.

TRIP CANCELLATION INSURANCE:

Trip cancellation insurance is an additional cost and is strongly recommended.  Students are responsible for arranging their own trip cancellation insurance.
