Standard Amendment/Cancellation/Refund Policy - Katawud Village & Kottages

Katawud Village & Kottages takes pride in the quality and value of our products and services, and we appreciate having you as a customer. If you notice an issue with your reservation or order, please send us an email at, with the best contact information for you, and the relevant information about the purchase. One of our customer service agents will contact you about the issue.


Your purchase does not automatically guarantee a reservation. Your purchase will be confirmed via email within one (1) to two (2) business days. The cancellation fee policy will take effect once you submit your reservation. If your purchase cannot be confirmed for any reason, we will fully refund your purchase without any additional charges. We recommend each customer read and review the cancellation policy and consider purchasing a Travel Insurance policy from a third party.


What CAN be Refunded

  • Some tours and accommodations may require a minimum number of travelers to operate. The affected traveler will be fully refunded or may choose a similar tour/accommodation package as a substitute. Should this occur, it would be under very rare circumstances.

  • Please note that the tour/accommodation or product substitute chosen by the traveler may be more expensive than the original tour/accommodation or product and therefore may be subject to an additional cost.

  • Any additional refunds based on extenuating circumstances will depend on the specific tour/accommodation package or product.


What CANNOT be Refunded

  • All accommodation and tour schedules are arranged ahead of time. Any person failing to appear on the day of departure will not be refunded.

  • No refund will be given for any portions of the tour/accommodation unused by the traveler after tour departure regardless of circumstances.

  • Airfare is completely non-refundable and non-changeable for tours when airfare is included in the final price.

  • Tours/accommodation extensions and Instant Confirmation products (special events, performances, etc.) cannot be exchanged or refunded once confirmed.
