Returned Checks

There is a $20.00 penalty for all returned checks.

If a personal check issued by a parent affiliated with your organization is returned for any reason, your group will be held responsible for the $20.00 fee.

Number Changes / Final Count Guarantee

All festival participants must guarantee their minimum count by 30 days before the event. The Invoice Contact will receive an email approximately 40 days before your event reminding you to login and make your changes. *If you are using a travel planner they will be contacted to verify your ticket counts.

At the 30 day deadline we need a breakdown of how many students and adults are participating in your trip.

It is your responsibility to guarantee your final counts – even if you do not receive the email reminder.

After the 30 day deadline, your tickets totals cannot be lowered for any reason. 


Refunds for any overpayments will be issued within 30 days following your festival date. Refunds are issued to the organization, rather than an individual. 
All refunds will be issued by check. If you have any questions or a special refund request, please email
