When a booking is cancelled, TomsCatch makes no money. Depending on who cancels the fishing tour and when the cancellation is made, the deposit paid during the booking will be transferred either to the customer or to the captain.
Captains set their own cancellation policies. They can determine if the deposit is non-refundable, or 100% refundable with a certain number of days prior notice. If the customers cancels a trip with a non-refundable deposit cancellation policy, he or she will forfeit the deposit.
When Customers Cancel
If the customer cancels a fishing trip with a free cancellation policy (this is you can cancel cost-free if you cancel with at least x days prior to the fishing trip), the customer gets a full refund. If the customer cancels after that date, he or she will forfeit the deposit. Example: if the captain has set a Free Cancellation with 7 days notice, the customer gets a full refund if he or she cancels with 7 days or more prior to the fishing trip. If the customer cancels with less than 7 days prior notice, he or she will forfeit the deposit.
When a customer forfeits the deposit, the money will be transferred to the captain.
You can review the cancellation policy for each charter on the fishing charter page in the section “Booking Policy”. This information is also visible during the payment process on the check-out page.
When Captains Cancels
The customer will always get a refund if the captain is responsible for cancelling a trip. The can be due to a scheduling issue on behalf of the captain, mechanical issues or bad weather conditions.
We ask captains to inform us when they have mechanical issues so that we can set correct expectations for their customers.
Bad Weather & Mechanical Issues
In the event of the port being closed due to severe weather, your trip will be re-scheduled. If this is not possible the customer will get a full refund. As safety is of the utmost priority for TomsCatch, if it is unsafe to run a trip due to a boat malfunction or bad weather, the captain will not be held responsible for cancelling trips. Captains keep us informed about weather conditions and mechanical issues; and we encourage them to inform the customer about the weather and unfortunate technical problems.
