In the event of any cancellations, monies will NOT be refunded 30-days after the client booking date. However, client payments to Jumping Salmon Lodge can be applied to a future trip within 12-months of the clients booking date; or assigned to another party under the original client’s consent/permission: pending lodge scheduling and Travel Insurance payments, if applicable.
We HIGHLY recommend that each client purchase trip cancellation insurance policy. Sportsman’s Travel Insurance below, phone 1.866.877.3241 or Travelex Insurance Services at 1.800.228.9792 are very affordable options for our clients.
