|General Fishing Trip Booking Information |
Every Lodge, guide service, camp and outfitter has different pricing and booking requirements. However, many have similar policies no matter where they are located. The rule of thumb is that 50% of the trip total be paid to secure a reservation within ten or so days of booking. Typically, the balance is due between 60 to 90 days prior to scheduled arrival.
Cancellation policies can vary as well and should be carefully noted and understood before making a booking. If you or any of your traveling companions have health considerations or are at the mercy of frequent changes in travel plans due to work, trip cancellation insurance is a wise investment indeed. Many fishing operations have a very limited fishing season and just a few cancellations can make or break a booking season for them. If you find yourself unable to go on your trip you may end up having to forfeit payments you've made unless certain requirements are met. World Angler Magazine recommends that you contact your personal or corporate insurance underwriters about obtaining trip cancellation insurance.
We advise you to thoroughly read and understand the cancellation policies of each destination you wish to book and make any necessary arrangements to insure that your fishing trip is a memorable, positive experience.
