Forms of Payment

Credit/debit card payments via Wetravel

 Burgundy Roots prides itself in unique and curated travel experiences. In order for us to fulfil our promise, we must pay our suppliers ahead of time. Please note that once your deposit is processed, it cannot be recuperated as our suppliers are paid upfront months ahead of time. Thank you for your understanding. Please read carefully through our cancellation policy and message us if you have any questions.

Deposit/payment terms

A non-refundable deposit must be received within the time specified at the time of booking in order to confirm your booking and avoid automatic cancellation. If you are unable to attend for whatever reason, you may transfer the trip to a family member or friend.

No refunds will be granted. Discomfort/unease with regards to travel or quarantine upon return will not be considered. All payments are final and non-refundable.

EXCEPTIONS: Should you test positive for COVID-19 prior to the trip, Burgundy Roots will grant a credit and funds will not be lost. They may be used on a later retreat (no refunds granted).

Travel documents

Proof of citizenship, passports, visas, tourist cards, health recommendations, inoculations (where required), and compliance with customs regulations are your responsibility. Burgundy Roots Retreats shall not be responsible if boarding or entry is denied or delayed or if cancellation charges are imposed or additional costs incurred as a result of the failure to provide required travel documents. All information should be confirmed directly with the appropriate government consulate or tourist office in advance of departure. If a birth certificate is being used, please make sure it is an original or certified copy with a raised seal, and bring an additional government-issued picture I.D. (such as a driver’s license).

Unaccompanied minors

Minors must be accompanied by a parent or legal guardian. Special requirements may apply in the event a minor is travelling with a guardian or with only one parent, including but not limited to notarized parental permission. There may be special requirements and restrictions for groups of minors travelling such as chaperone ratios, damage deposits, and other requirements. Please inquire for more information. 

Special requirements for children travelling with only one parent:

For entry to some countries such as Mexico, minors under 18 years of age must travel with the consent of both parents. If a minor is travelling with only one parent, that parent must hold a notarized letter of consent from the absent legal parent or a copy of the legal document giving that parent sole custody. If one parent is deceased, a copy of the death certificate is necessary. If a minor is travelling without legal parents, a notarized letter of consent must be submitted and signed by the legal parents. Please confirm travel requirements with the consulate.
