We understand that plans can change, and we aim to be as accommodating as possible while also ensuring the smooth operation of our services. Please take note of our cancellation policy:

  • Cancellation Period: In the event of a cancellation, the cancellation period is crucial in determining the applicable fees.
  • Cancellation Fees:
    • Cancellation Less than Seven (7) Days Prior to Booking: If you cancel your booking within seven (7) days prior to the scheduled time, a cancellation fee equal to 100% of the total price of the booking will be incurred. This means that the entire amount you paid for the booking will be non-refundable.
    • Early Cancellation. Seven (7) or More Days Prior to Your Trip: If you decide to cancel your booking seven (7) or more days in advance of your scheduled trip, a standard early cancellation fee of $250 will be applicable.
    • Full Payment in Advance: If you choose to pay the full amount in advance for your booking and cancel Seven (7) or more days before your trip, you will be entitled to a refund minus the early cancellation fee of $250. This aligns with the early cancellation policy for bookings made seven (7) or more days prior to the trip.
    • Deposit Retention: The deposit is a security deposit that is collected at the time of booking and serves the purpose of booking in a driver and administrative costs. It further serves as a guarantee for the proper use and care of our vehicles. In the case of an early cancellation, as described above, The Benda Party Bus reserves the right to retain half of your deposit ($250).
