Mont Blanc Cancellation/Refund Policy

Note: Alpine Ascents International highly recommends trip cancellation insurance for all expeditions.

  • Due to the nature and heavy costs of government and operator permits, Alpine Ascents International must adhere to a stringent refund policy.

  • All balances are due 120 days prior to departure date unless otherwise specified.

  • Participants whose balances are not received by the 120th day deadline as stated above risk forfeiture of their place on the expedition.
Note: Alpine Ascents reserves the right to waive any fees. As we offer personalized service, we will attempt to accommodate changes and cancellations when necessary, waiving certain fees when feasible.

Trip Cancellation Insurance

As there are many unforeseen circumstances that may occur during or leading up to the trip, we highly recommend trip cancellation insurance.

In many situations, this may be the only way to receive a refund for unused services.

In brief, trip cancellation insurance may allow you to get reimbursement if you need to cancel your expedition when you are not entitled to a refund from Alpine Ascents.

Alpine Ascents International offers a plan in conjunction with our travel insurance partner.

The exceptional knowledge, flexibility, planning skills, and foresight of the lead guide and the unwavering attention Alpine Ascents shows to client safety by increasing the guide/climber ratio is precisely why I am a repeat customer.
