Why are WV's terms NON NEGOTIABLE

Transferable monies may go towards any of our current tours. Deposits are non-refundable funds that are paid to various travel suppliers who require non refundable payments to secure their inventory. Therefore, the purchase of TRAVEL INSURANCE IS REQUIRED.
What is a voluntary cancellation
A tour member that no longer finds their tour viable. Two consecutive Non-payments qualifies as a voluntary cancellation in which you will be notified that your tour and all monies paid will be forfeited. A written cancellation is mandatory.
